Full description after the photos…. The Marcus Beach House by Bark Architects The Marcus Beach house celebrates a natural, coastal setting providing its occupants with an inextricable relationship to the landscape and sensitive surrounding environment. The dwelling explores lightness, filtering natural breezes, layers of transparency and integrating indoor / outdoor spaces within dynamic patterns of light and shadow, being a simple frame to enable a contemporary sustainable lifestyle to unfold.

Whilst feeling like a ‘beach house’ sited 250 meters away from Marcus Beach, the basic ‘pavilion’ plan was sketched out in the sand during an early site visit: a simple diagram of two pavilions placed either side of a venerable 100 year old Morton Bay Ash that takes centre stage to the scale, proportions and life of the house around it.

Devoto House. The Echo House by Kariouk Associates. Kariouk Associates have designed the Echo House in Ottawa, Canada; which involved renovating an existing 1924 Victorian-style house into an updated contemporary home.

The Echo House by Kariouk Associates

The Echo House by Kariouk Associates Task: To marry eighty-four years of history by integrating a contemporary, open and functional living space inside a 1924 landmark that overlooks the Rideau Canal. Project Challenge: The starting point for this renovation was a modest Victorian home in poor condition, whose rooms with small windows and dark interior spaces were separated from one another, as was typical of homes built in an era when privacy was a cultural priority.

In another gesture to Victorian public decorum, the arrangement of the existing interior spaces reinforced the antiquated ideal that work life and family life should be kept distinct. Project Response: Echo: noun; “A sympathetic or identical response, as to sentiments expressed; a lingering trace or effect” Visit the website of Kariouk Associates – here. 1105dwell by Dwell Development.

Full description after the photos…. The Nicholson Residence by MAC Interactive Architects This extensive renovation of a 1970’s brick house in Cronulla contributes to contemporary interior design practice in its re-use of an existing building, adapted and modified to suit the changing needs of its long-standing owners. The original house was dark and cluttered with separate rooms for each function with no sense of flow. The energy embodied in an existing building is such that it is generally more sustainable to renovate than demolish and re-create.Contemporary interior design also has to address an increasingly individualistic and educated client; who may or may not want an attention seeking design.

Adega Casa da Torre by Castanheira & Bastai Arquitectos

Full description after the photos…. Description of Adega Casa da Torre by Carlos Castanheira A winery is no longer what it used to be. I once knew wineries where cobwebs and dust, were the sign of time passing and of the times. Time was also, almost always, the sign of quality, as the wine that got preserved over time, at the time, was good wine, which got even better after being left there for a few years. Wineries are changing and they no longer have room for dust nor for cobwebs. The roof structure in laminated timber is a simple one, despite the four stanchions that emerge from each pillar, to support the roof trusses.

Over the granite outdoor tank, sits the volume of the small office, both outside and inside, trying to connect the two spaces. The Scheider Chalet by tecARCHITECTURE.

Finding Inspiration in Uncommon Sources: 12 Places to Look - Smashing Magazine

Most designers, when lacking ideas, turn to design galleries to find ideas. But there are a few problems with that approach. The most obvious is that when taking inspiration from similar mediums, there’s a fine line between “inspired by” and “copied”. To some extent, looking at established website designs can also be somewhat limiting, especially if you’re looking for a fresh solution to a problem. There are so many things designers could be turning to for inspiration outside of design galleries. The Ross Street House by Richard Wittschiebe Hand Architects.
