North Vancouver House by Scott & Scott Architects in Vancouver, Canada

Project: North Vancouver House
Architects: Scott & Scott Architects
Location: Vancouver, Canada
Area: 1,614 sqft

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || ).push({});

North Vancouver House by Scott & Scott Architects

The North Vancouver House is a complete refurbishment of a mid-century modern house located just below Grouse Mountain in northern Vancouver, Canada. The renovation was carried out by the Canadian studio Scott & Scott Architects who agreed with the owners’ interest in respecting the original details of the house, while at the same time, complementing it with traditional features and materials.

North Vancouver House by Scott & Scott Architects in Vancouver, Canada

Working with the architects to locate a suitable property for a new home the clients purchased a 1950s post and beam house located near the base of Grouse Mountain. The house, while extensively renovated over the years, had a modest scale, well proportioned rooms and a strong connection to the wooded and mature yard.

The project consists of the design and construction of the restoration and renovation of the 150 sq. m house. The living space was stripped of embellishments, services rationalized and the enclosed stair was replaced with a new open stair of steel and fir which allows for the light from the second floor hall window to connect with the ground floor.

The project draws from the architects and clients (two history professors) shared interest in traditional materials and respect for the original details of the house.

To brighten the spaces the douglas fir beams were lye washed and the structural decking was finished with a cloth applied pigmented oil. The living spaces were reduced to the structural shell, the walls were repaired and finished in a natural lime based whitewash and the floors ground and troweled.

The materials used were selected for their contrasting strengths and minimally finished using traditional methods that are maintainable and acquire visible signs of use over time. The steel stair and fireplace frame were finished with wood stove paste and bowling alley wax and the cabinetry was lye washed and sealed with soap.

With minimal change to the configuration of the spaces, the functional storage was consolidated into two douglas fir plywood cabinet blocks to maximize the open spaces while providing concealed storage for the living, entry and kitchen.

The kitchen was crafted of solid ash and designed for the open storage of the owners collection of studio pottery. While open and light in section, the joinery was detailed to structurally bear the weight of the 800kg marble counter monolith which was milled from a block the architects selected from the Hisnet Inlet quarry located on Vancouver Island near their own alpine cabin.

R+P House by ADI Arquitectura y Diseño Interior

The R+P House is a stunning contemporary residence designed by the Mexico-based studio ADI Arquitectura y Diseño InteriorThis two-story residence is located in the city of Aguascalientes in Mexico and it boasts 3,767 square feet of living space for its residents. It is designed for a 5-member family where 3 members are beloved pets.
The exterior design is dictated by the irregular fan-shaped land, oriented south to north. Its minimalist, contemporary look sets it apart from the rest of the homes in the area.

R+P House by ADI Arquitectura y Diseño Interior in Aguascalientes City, Mexico

Located in a residential area in the northern part of Aguascalientes city, R+P house is developed for a family of 5, where 3 of them are pets.

In an irregular fan shaped land and with a south-north orientation. The architectonic program is resolved in two floors.

Given the land characteristics and based on the customer’s requirements of having ortogonal spaces, this project is conceptualized as two prismatic volumes aligned with the colindancias laterales and connected by the vestibule that resolves the circulaciones.

On the first floor we can find the social areas: garage, kitchen, living room, dining room and Talita, Hanna and Job’s bedroom that has a direct access to the garden terrace.

On the first level, the master bedroom, studio, laundry room and TV room.

The master bedroom and terrace have a view of the back garden, opening a space between the garage’s volume to give it a south orientation.

The main vestibule is the articulator axis of the whole project, connecting both prismas, all the rooms are connected through a double height space and a bridge that unites the upper floor.

The material selection was determined by its practicality and ease of cleaning, in a house where pets are a member of the family.

House in Ranzo by Wespi de Meuron in Ranzo, Switzerland

House in Ranzo by Wespi de Meuron

Wespi de Meuron is an architecture studio that we’ve stumbled upon before. In particular, we’ve featured their Concrete House and House in Brissago projects on our site.
Today, we’ve got another one of their contemporary homes to feature on our site. The House in Ranzo is a minimal interpretation of local, historical references into a contemporary dwelling. It is a compact 1,367 square foot home covered in traditional natural gray plaster with a pergola and courtyard walls that form a Mediterranean character.

House in Ranzo by Wespi de Meuron in Ranzo, Switzerland

The project works with references to the historical architectural culture of the place and interprets them anew.

The traditional natural grey plaster of the façade associated with the simple cube of the modern house detracts itself from a precise temporal assignment.

This house is closely linked to the historical paths from the lake to the village. The terrace with a mountainside courtyard wall, a long bench and natural stone paving has Mediterranean character. The pergola place on the old barn is directly connected with a steep staircase to the house and forms a counterpoint to the new building

Owl Creek Residence by Skylab Architecture in Colorado, USA

Project: Owl Creek Residence
Architects: Skylab Architecture
Location: Snowmass, Colorado, USA
Area: 4,200 sqft
Photographs by: Courtesy of Skylab Architecture

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || ).push({});

Owl Creek Residence by Skylab Architecture

Skylab Architecture of Portland has designed the spectacular 4,200 square feet Owl Creek Residence in Snowmass, Colorado. It has a very unusual, triangular floor plan which is made to respond to the constraints of the site on which the residence is built.
The strict constraints presented a challenge for the architects who, instead of allowing themselves to be limited by them, they used them as an advantage. The structure has been anchored into the surrounding environment and it opens up to create strong visual connections to the idyllic landscape.

Owl Creek Residence by Skylab Architecture in Colorado, USA

Anchored in a hillside with panoramic Snowmass Mountain views, the Owl Creek Residence was built as a shared family retreat. Site constraints were central in the design response, informing the spatial concept to triangulate to work with the existing sloping terrain.

The project vision was to create a collection of lodge-like communal spaces surrounded by naturally weathered and local materials providing an abundance of access to natural light, and minimizing visual separation from the outdoors. This all weather mountain retreat is about enhancing and recharging social relations and maximizing connections to the native environment. The shared residence was designed around the idea that a place can deepen the connections between people, families and the landscape they love.

Finishes and interior relationships were carefully crafted to draw the scenic landscape inward and extending the outdoor deck living experience. A central spiraling split-level arrangement allows for the living room, fireplace, bar and lounge to feel like intimate spaces with a communal energy. Terracing theater seating maximizes space within the stairwell working with the topography.

The strict height limitation and slope constraints of the site turned into an advantage by anchoring the structure into the landforms. The structure frames powerful views through two principal façades, maximizing the visual connection to the landscape at every angle. Strategic decisions in the frame and form allowed for efficiencies and functional benefits, including a triangular structural steel frame with car decking to minimize costs through prefabrication, and a roof slope to move water and snow downslope.

Compact and efficient private sleeping wings open up to expansive outdoor views at the lower level. Exterior spaces open interior activity to the outdoors including a triangular spa with an elevated deck and an expansive outdoor terrace right off of the kitchen. The Owl Creek residence provides a platform to gather in a shared living environment connected to their surroundings with purpose, deepening family connections.

The Cubes House by Nestor Sandbank in Israel

Project: Cubes House
Architects: Nestor Sandbank
Location: Ramot HaShavim, Israel
Area: 32,291 sqft
Photographs by: Itai Sikolsky

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || ).push({});

The Cubes House by Nestor Sandbank

The Cubes House is a luxurious residence designed by Nestor SandbankThe project is located in Ramot HaShavim, Israel. Its distinct exterior design is immediately recognizable thanks to the three distinct cubes that provide private spaces for the family members. They are more like mini-apartments within the house, each of them complete with a private living room, bedroom and a bathroom.

The Cubes House by Nestor Sandbank in Israel

Designed by Nestor Sandbank, this modernist mansion is organized on the ​​3000 square meters site in a unique way. While the house as a whole is centered around a large lawn in the back, its construction actually consists of four separate modules linked by transit areas on the first floor.

Built in Ramot Hashavim, the project features a main wing that contains all the main public rooms with a master suite above it, then extends to its other three bedrooms in an entirely separate wing. The firm Nestor Architecture is one of the busiest offices in Israel, it specializes in apartment complexes and other multi-residential properties, high-level villas, and “Boutique” buildings with very special design.

The family living in “The Cubes House” had a fantasy: to build a house that wasn’t a normal house, in which all functions and rooms are part of a mega volume contained in a rectangular box. Nestor Sandbank offered a very special design in which each child’s bedroom is a two story unit occupying an independent quasi-autonomous structure.

Joined by a single corridor, surrounded by water features, the rooms of the three older children: 17, 15, and 11 years old, are built in a row perpendicular to the main house, with space for individual life in the first floors and the bedrooms upstairs. Each room has its own terrace overlooking the garden, as well as a large balcony off the master bedroom on the main wing. The courtyard is carefully designed with contemporary design furniture that is integrated with the design of the residence, keeping it an essential part of living and comfortable space.

Nestor Sandbank

The Cubes House by Nestor Sandbank in Israel

Inside, the white walls in most of the house are accented by great works of art and the “bridge” that connects the parents’ bedroom with the bedroom of the smallest child 6 years old. Each public area is generally aligned with a similar outdoor space on the pool deck, allowing outdoor life in good weather. Each child’s room has its own decor items and unique views, giving them an individualized personality.

Along one edge of the property, a long concrete bar offers a dining and drinking place for more than half a dozen residents and visitors, while further back on the floor consisting of concrete geometric elements is a more formal outdoor dining area that provides an alternative. The house consists of two floors above ground and one below, with individualized services for each occupant.

On the waterfront, the courtyard is dotted with ultramodern chairs and matching tables that display the same color as the house as a whole. Near the children’s bedrooms, a large ​​stainless steel sphere with mirror finish is an additional sculptural feature on the lawn. Every facet of outdoor space of the residence is designed to broaden the stylish and modern building outwards.

The pool, like many features of the contemporary landscape, has been designed so that the water is parallel to the level of the terrace and the garden around it, drawing in small crevices of 2 cm along each edge. On the side near the bedrooms of children, an additional modern sculpture (white and irregularly shaped) functions as a bench.

Nestor Sandbank

The Cubes House by Nestor Sandbank in Israel

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || ).push({});

Towards the end of the pool, the grass falls abruptly, and the concrete structure of water stops, creating an infinite edge and a smaller pool 20cm deep, to sunbathe on loungers in the water, and as an extension of the swimming space. During the day, the vertically operated blinds can be used in all windows of the house to keep the afternoon sun and the eyes of the neighbors out.

Despite its focus on the lawn, the house should function by itself and on the days that outdoor access is not available. Inside, wide circulation areas have been created to connect the main part of the house with its three semi-independent satellite structures.

In addition to every child’s room having its own balcony, the master bedroom has its own spacious terrace on the corner of the main wing, built with a strategic view of all the smaller bedrooms of the house and the living spaces on the lower level.

Under the master bedroom balcony, the more formal outdoor dining area of the house has eight seats on contemporary furniture without being impractical. Further, an elegant outdoor seating area is shaded between two wings of the house and under a retractable canvas awning.

Despite having only one facade on the first floor extending through them to provide interior circulation between each space, the three children’s bedrooms are separate structures, each architecturally identical, but open to the personality of each individual in its decoration. If the circulation was deleted, each could stand as a compact personal tower, holding children’s bedrooms, recreational and storage space.

Nestor Sandbank

The Cubes House by Nestor Sandbank in Israel

A number of large window areas of the house include wide sliding glass doors, allowing the main rooms to be opened and combined with the lawn for larger entertainment spaces integrated into the same plane.

The living room of the house is dominated by two elements: a vast arsenal of open shelves 6 feet tall and the main entrance door to the house with spectacular dimensions: 1.50 x 6.00 m that opens completely.

The main living room is distinguished from the rest of the long space it occupies by a large rectangular rug, which gives it a more comfortable environment than the hardwood floors around it. Its furniture combines mid century sculpture with contemporary design, which is very comfortable but undeniably modern.

At the edge of the room, the metallic shades of the balcony extend down as a bold staircase with blank wall space covered by intriguing contemporary art. At the opposite end, a kitchen designed by Giorgio Armani and the dining room starts from the living room due to its location in an area ​​limited to a single height.

This main staircase extends downwards to the basement. It has the same wooden floor as the rest of the house. On the ground floor of one of the children’s independent structures, an area of ​​elegant and energetic life is furnished and decorated with the personality of an individual in mind. An elegant spiral staircase built in metal 2 cm thick and cut by a computer-based laser leads to the upstairs bedroom

Not all outdoor recreation areas in the house are on the lawn. Between the two wings is a terrace divided by a concrete suspension bridge that is also the entrance bridge to the house. The main entrance on the ground for cars and people is very wide and consists of concrete rectangular floors separated by lawn. The parking is covered by a white metal construction with an opaque glass ceiling to allow natural light. At night, the ceiling lights with LEDs and becomes a giant lamp seen from everywhere.

Estancia y Ficus by Canas Arquitectos in Escazu, Costa Rica

Project: Estancia y Ficus
Architects: Canas Arquitectos
Location: Escazu, Costa Rica
Area: 979 sqft

Estancia y Ficus by Canas Arquitectos

The Estancia y Ficus project by Canas Arquitectos is a very simple, yet an incredibly unique project. It is a rather small house, only spanning across 979 square feet but not all is in the size. This house is all about location. It is located in the colonial city of Escazu in San Jose in Costa Rica, but more importantly, it is placed atop a hill that overlooks San Jose and Heredia.

Estancia y Ficus by Canas Arquitectos in Escazu, Costa Rica

The program could not be simpler.

It’s a place where one can enjoy the view and spend afternoons and part of the evening with friends and family.

The location selected had a slight slope towards the east and a bonsai like tree, that resembles the ones grown by its owner.

The view of the San Jose city with the central volcanic mountain range is spectacular, the Escazu mountains with it’s Pico Blanco or White Peak , so close that you feel that you can touch them with your hands.

At nighttime, San Jose becomes the main attraction as it starts lighting up, the sky starts turning red, tinted by the city lights and the rest of the landscape begins to get lost in the darkness. The only one thing that remains is the illuminated Ficus.

With this in mind, we designed a glass house, elevated on top of metallic columns and with a cover that opens towards the view – 3 glass sides and a back wall (with the amenities).

Canas Arquitectos

Estancia y Ficus by Canas Arquitectos in Escazu, Costa Rica

The access is through a steel bridge and glass which directs us towards the open view of the city , and soon towards the end, breaking off into an angle to access the room. It’s a unique 52 m2 space which holds living room, dining room, kitchen and a small adjacent bathroom.

This space opens up completely on its northeast side facing the area’s landscape and about 60% towards the 30 square meter terrace facing San Jose.

A dark ceramic tile was chosen for the floor and the ceiling was paingted greyinh color so that during the night these colores would leave the room almost in a semi darkness and would not compete with the city lights. The furniture and the wall colors all complement such style.

To sum it all up: a light and clear project, which is not intrusive, designed to immerse yourself within the scenery.

16 Stunning Transitional Home Bar Ideas You Should Consider

A home bar is often considered as something that only very rich people can afford to have in their luxurious, grand homes. But that is nothing more than a common misconception. The home bar is a welcome addition to any home and it absolutely doesn’t have to be very expensive.
The easiest way to incorporate a home bar in your home is by extending the counter in your kitchen so that you can place bar stools and use it as a bar counter at the same time.
The transitional home bar doesn’t have to be in the kitchen though. It can be standalone or it can be a part of the dining room, the living room, your mancave and of course, the kitchen.
