LOFT is a residential project that intervenes in the recovery of a typical post-war industrial structure located on the outskirts of Milan in the avenue Monza area, near the underground station and the railway link. The architecture consists of three blocks with a typical gabled section and an internal steel structure. Three long, parallel industrial ships present a body of the building and are incised by patios that allow the space to be recovered for residential use.
The identity of Wynyard was not clear because of various things — a Korean owner-chef who learned cooking in Switzerland and Australia, French modern dining expressing various genres freely, an old building in a quiet back alley of Yeonhui-dong, a town with a strong cultural and artistic background — were mixed and coexist. We, however, thought it could be attractive as itself, and designed the space and brand with the concept of ‘ambiguity’.
Locaāhand Dining club is a restaurant that specializes in wood fire menus located in Surabaya, East Java, Indonesia. True to the studio’s dedication to committing to sustainable construction, the design revolved around retaining as much of the original house foundation as possible.
Every house essentially has a similar program with the only difference being the scales, but it is the client’s brief and an architect’s response to it that brings about the myriad variations of space-making that is extremely personal and yet feel universal. The vault house (1700sft) is one such response to its site which is contoured with a lake view on the West and roads on all three sides. The plan is organized around a central spine running North and south, with wings on each side. Public areas on the East and the private zone on the West give it the ease of connection while keeping the privacy intact. North entry with a set of steps set in stone leads up to the main door with a low height slab over verandah that marks the entrance.
The site of EMK Musical Company is located at the crossroads where Nonhyeonno – one of the major roads in Gangnam, Seoul – and Nambusunhwan-ro intersect with each other. The future benefits, which will accrue from the high rent in Gangnam, especially the high rent on the ground floor, induce conflicts between the program and the desire for the office building space with abundant interior and exterior space (including the exterior space on the ground).
This family house, typical of domestic 1970s architecture in Switzerland, has been completely renovated. Its location in the upper parts of the village of Blonay, offers its inhabitants an unobstructed view of Lake Geneva and the Alps. Subtle and specific interventions on the original reinforced concrete structure have freed up certain spaces revealing the potential of the house. The renovation therefore enhances the essence of the existing spaces while reinterpreting certain elements to reveal their functional and spatial qualities.
This is a renovation project of an architect’s own residence. The 90 ㎡ floors on the second floor of the apartment building in a high-density residential area was planned as a base for the diverse activities of the architect: a residence, an office, a studio, and a showroom.
