Second Nature House / Wallflower Architecture + Design

January 23, 2022 Hana Abdel 0

The brief was a house large enough to accommodate a multi-generational family with grown-up children. Spacious enough for each to have their privacy, cozy enough for family bonding. This set us thinking on how to maximize every inch of the land within the restrictions of local building regulations. As the owner had the backing of a large construction firm; an award-winning builder recognized for their capabilities in large-scale projects and complex underground tunnel works, it was an opportunity not to be missed.

Ohvenu Cafe / YOLLLLEY STUDIO

January 23, 2022 Hana Abdel 0

This space consisting of interior space and exterior terrace with an area of 297㎡ perspectively, is located between tall buildings. At sunset, the interior space is transformed into a monotonous terrace while the setting sun presents a magnificent view through the gap between the buildings surrounding this space. The design of this space which leads to the exterior terrace area along with two bent windows began from the thought that the inside and the outside should not be interpreted as different spaces.

Blackheath Courtyard House / Pearson Architecture

January 23, 2022 Hana Abdel 0

Perched on the edge of a leafy lane close to the heart of the village center, the linear composition of this Blue Mountains House presents an abstract façade of timber and steel to the street. The streamlined industrial aesthetic references the corrugated iron of rural buildings, with walls extending into branching galvanized steel garden trellises that dissolve into the garden and mesh with the neighboring landscape.

Mehra Musings Residence / Studio Sangath

January 22, 2022 Hana Abdel 0

Located in the outskirts of Ahmedabad, Mehra Musing is a residence designed for a family spanning three generations. The home, set on a compact plot of 480 square yards is akin to a dark grey ‘box’ in its stone crete plaster exterior, secretive of the choreography it holds inside. Upon entering through the narrow passage in the front, a first glimpse of the sunlit interior with the dance of floating levels leads to an unforgettable discovery.

Two of a Kind Apartment / WY-TO architects

He is a tech-savvy CEO and an avid collector of watches. She is a renowned hairstylist based in NYC. Distinct tastes and styles define a unique duality between the young couple that sparked an opportunity to carve a bespoke project that spoke to their nature. A modest area meant that the intervention had to be controlled within a small footprint in order to maintain the main event area. These inspired the 2 opposing geological forms that perform in a concert of each other in this compact space design.

Dragos Voda 17 Apartment Building / ADNBA

January 22, 2022 Hana Abdel 0

Located within an old and diverse urban fabric with long plots specific to Bucharest, the proposal appears, at first glance, as a compact volume. However, the long facades showcase a certain playfulness through an interplay of added and subtracted volumes that gives away the diversity of the interior living spaces and apartment types.

Takenishi Terrace Coffee Shop / YRAD

January 21, 2022 Hana Abdel 0

This is a project that confronts the nature of the renewal of land use after a deteriorating rental building facing a shopping street was demolished. The site is in the center of Oita City, on the western edge of the oldest shopping street in the area. The bustle of the past has faded and the arcade has turned into a place that people just pass through to get somewhere else. We received a request from a client who runs a letting agency in the town to use a corner of the site where a car park was going to be built after the building was demolished for a small tenant space and a place for people to go such as a park where they can take a break, in order to bring the bustle back to the area.
