Summerhouse in Austria

  I’ve become a fan of wooden architecture. Can’t imagine a healthier living environment than that. Here is a barn style house in Southern Burgenland (Austria), which also contains rooms for wine production (very common in that area) and a cellar. As the house is not inhabited during winter months, it is possible to shut down the … Continue reading

The Mill House

1998. aastal muutis arhitekt Gert Wingårdh ühe suure Lõuna-Rootsis asuva talu Malmös elavale linnaperele puhkekoduks. Lehmalaudast, tallist, lakast ja küünist said magamisruumid, köök ja jõusaal. Muuhulgas lisas ta ka ühe uue eraldiseisva hoone 19. sajandi kompleksile, millest pidi saama privaatne pelgupaik külalistele. Tulemus on suurepärane näide sellest, kuidas klient usaldas arhitekti, andes talle selle 50m² maja … Continue reading

A Little Shelter by Luca Zanaroli

  See rustikaalne ühepereelamu asub Itaalias, Morciano de Leuca läheduses Salentos. Arhitekt Luca Zanaroli otsustas renoveerida kaks vana mahajäetud hoonet, mida kasutasid kunagi talupojad varjualusena ja püssirohu laona. Hooned restaureeriti kohalikku toorainet kasutades ja viimistleti keskkonnasõbraliku lubjakrohviga. Et pimedad ruumid valgusküllasemaks muuta, puuriti seintesse mõned augud, mis soodustavad ka õhu liikumist ja loomuliku ventilatsiooni teket. … Continue reading

Warehouse Apartment by Dean/Wolf Architects

  Dean/Wolf arhitektuuribüroo arhitekt Charles Wolf ja disainer Eunjeong Seong nokitsesid vana laohoone kallal ja muutsid selle pinna fantastiliseks korteriks NYC kesklinnas. Kasutades Corten terast, klaasi, betooni, telliseid ja puitu lõid nad peaaegu 1000 m² suuruse viiekorruselise kodu, mille endised ruumid olid sedavõrd suured, et selle arvelt loodi rõdud-sisehoovid, mis toimivad siseruumide pikendustena ja mille suured klaasist … Continue reading
