SHEPPARD WILSON HOUSE IS DESIGNED TO VIEW A HERITAGE-LISTED MORETON BAY FIG TREE

SHEPPARD WILSON HOUSE IS DESIGNED TO VIEW A HERITAGE-LISTED MORETON BAY FIG TREE

Sheppard Wilson House is Designed to View a Heritage-listed Moreton Bay Fig Tree
Sam Crawford Architects : There’s an understated quality in Sam Crawford’s residential projects that makes them appear all the more stylish and elegant. The Sydney-based principal of Sam Crawford Architects doesn’t believe in bells and whistles and his signature thoughtful approach primarily focuses on the client’s comfort. Homes need not make flashy architectural statements; rather they can be intelligently designed places for everyday living, as his recently completed addition in Sydney’s Bronte attests.

The project’s modest existing weatherboard cottage is one of the beachside suburb’s original houses. When clients Neil Sheppard and Emma Wilson first approached Sam it was with a relatively ambitious brief calling for an extension that would accommodate two kids’ bedrooms, at least one guestroom, a study, an open-plan living space and a kids’ area.

Because they didn’t have any preconceptions, Sam was free to explore different ideas; however, it was clear that there was only one solution. “With most clients we’ll suggest a soft transition to the rear that’s in sympathy with the existing house, but in this case the brief called for something larger than could ever be accommodated in a form that would sit easily with the cottage,” he says. “So we did something completely different and set it a long way back from the street.”

The cottage is in one of a number of Waverley Council’s Heritage Urban Conservation Areas and while the new two-storey addition complies with the presiding height restrictions, it’s still generous in scale. This generosity of proportion is balanced by the massive Moreton Bay fig tree at the western rear of the property and the hulking three-storey neighbour on the south. It ensures that the addition is not out of place and is resolutely mindful of its richly eclectic suburban context.
A sense of cohesion between new and old was also of visual importance to the overall scheme, so first Sam renovated the existing cottage to near-original condition. The refurbishment not only restored the structure, but also helped meet the brief’s programmatic requirements. He divided the large front room into the study and guestroom and inserted a new bathroom in between. A discreet bifold door in the corridor can be used to zone this area from the rest of the house, providing guests with privacy.

It’s a logical plan that aligns rooms on the northern side with the corridor running east on the south. The corridor’s side wall is original, retained closer to the boundary than Sam was permitted to build. Tucked neatly behind the guestroom is the kids’ area/TV room that sits within the cottage’s original footprint and abuts the courtyard. “We always try to incorporate a courtyard space that’s facing north and can be opened up. We thought it would be nice to have a table here and use the large window as a bench to sit on. And the windows [of the TV room] also open up the whole corner of the cottage,” Sam explains.
This transitional zone gives rise to the threshold between the existing structure and the new addition, in which the corridor cleanly “extends” into the stair. Sam introduces ironbark to the material palette and uses it dynamically yet judiciously to contrast with the oak timber flooring. Applying the darker timber to the stair, three-step threshold and large window reveal creates definition and visual intrigue in a zone that would have appeared washed out without such material accents.

An expansive, light-drenched open plan characterizes the addition’s living areas. The space is minimal and clean, heightened by a three-metre-high ceiling and a deliberate lack of embellishment. A custom concrete kitchen island installed below a spotted gum panel feature, plus blackened aluminium window and door frames, anchors the space without detracting from the view.
The rear wall’s full-height glass doors welcome the outside in and frame the heritage-listedMoreton Bay fig tree. “That tree is the biggest, most impressive part of the site,” says Sam. “And because of the hill behind it, it gives [the plan] a beautiful sense of spaciousness.” The large glass doors also capture as much sunlight as possible during the winter months (along with the high row of north-facing windows), while the tree serves to shade the house during summer.

Sam uses passive design to great effect in order to avoid airconditioning. The ceiling’s concrete slab keeps the upstairs bedrooms cool, as do the reverse brick veneer and discreet sunshading. A central circular skylight offers the bedrooms and bathroom another source of light, which reduces glare on the brightest of days. The overall scheme is quietly hardworking – it’s a home that is both relaxed and comfortable. Sam’s attention to detail is strong, but nothing in the renovation or addition is laboured, making for an interior that is as well crafted as it is inviting.

TRIBECA LOFT RESIDENTIAL APARTMENT BY ANDREW FRANZ ARCHITECT

TRIBECA LOFT RESIDENTIAL APARTMENT BY ANDREW FRANZ ARCHITECT

Tribeca Loft Residential Apartment by Andrew Franz Architect
Andrew Franz Architect PLLC : Located in a landmarked warehouse, the historic character and dynamic conditions of the existing project space were striking, featuring heavy timber columns and a unique geometry as a result of a sloped double height ceiling. While celebrating the authentic loft character and history of the building, the goal was to create a light-filled home with a sense of calm and retreat; an oasis within the urban jungle, and incorporate links to the natural environment.
Tribeca Loft Residential Apartment by Andrew Franz Architect
UNIQUE PROPERTIES :
In an 1884 warehouse, the top floor and roof are reconceived as a warm and inviting residence with a fluid connection to the outdoors. The space is transformed by a relocated mezzanine which features an interior court with a retractable glass roof, and connects to the new green roof garden above. Embracing the industrial past of the building, a visual discourse between new and old is devised through insertions of modern materials along with restored or reclaimed materials from the loft.
Tribeca Loft Residential Apartment by Andrew Franz Architect
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This project transforms a 280 m2 former commercial space into a modern and flexible home for living and entertaining. As you enter the loft you are presented with large entertainment areas and direct access to the mezzanine level. This transitional area features an interior court and a guest room suite, and connects to a roof garden with a lounge and dining area. The new floor plan contrasts the open, flexible living areas with private bedrooms and bathrooms in the rear of the loft.
Tribeca Loft Residential Apartment by Andrew Franz Architect
LOCATION:
The project is located in New York City, in the landmarked Tribeca North area.
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The design was guided with a goal of an eco-minded, healthy, and low-maintenance living environment. Reclaimed materials or locally sourced materials are used throughout, including wood floors and the oak for the cabinetry, baseboards and door frames, and reclaimed bluestone pavers on the roof top terrace. The green roof garden features a majority of native plant species that require little water while insulating the environment below. New ultra-efficient mechanical systems are employed.

CHALLENGE:
The main challenge was to add light, views, and outdoor connections within the constraints of a landmarked space. The existing loft was dark and cluttered, partly due to an existing mezzanine located below the ceiling’s lowest point. To open up the floor plan, we located the mezzanine at the south end where the ceiling height is greater. The added height allowed for the creation of an interior court which exposes the sky and brings light and accessible outdoor space into the loft below.

PIERRE-PERRET SCHOOL’S EXTERIOR IN FRANCE IS DESIGNED LIKE AN UFO

PIERRE-PERRET SCHOOL’S EXTERIOR IN FRANCE IS DESIGNED LIKE AN UFO

Ameller, Dubois & Associés  : The early childhood school complex designed by Philippe Ameller and Jacques Dubois in the suburban town of Serris, east of Paris, does not seem to be particularly alien or extravagant. But the urban context makes the new building a real UFO, as the Pierre-Perret school is located near Disneyland Paris.

Since its inauguration in 1992, the notorious amusement park has been a true engine of economic development. But it also provides its peculiar aesthetic direction, somewhere between The Truman Show and an impersonation of Parisian late XIXth century style. In this artificial area, the architects challenged the local mainstream tastes with their new school.

“We did think of this school project as an opportunity – and almost a duty – to place there a hint, a clue about what a pleasant life may be away from the Disneyland influences. A humble piece of genuine architecture of the early XXIst century seemed to be what the inhabitants of Serris needed most, for their youngest children to grow aware of their time.”

Fortunately, a recent awards jury shared this point of view, and liked the wooden touch of the design (totally alien to Serris until then). “No one felt insulted”, says Jacques Dubois, “as we certainly did not make fun of the existing town. We just felt it deserved to switch to something a little more genuine, step by step. This is the first step, and the population seems to appreciate it.”

BAZILLION APARTMENT: WARM AND COLD INTERIOR DECOR IN LITHUANIA

BAZILLION APARTMENT: WARM AND COLD INTERIOR DECOR IN LITHUANIA

Bazillion Apartment: Warm and Cold Interior Decor in Lithuania
YCL Studio : In the Bazillion apartment, YCL Studio has drawn a clear line between the day and the night program of this pied-à-terre for two, while simultaneously blurring the conventional division between the ‘wet’ and the ‘dry’ part of a dwelling. The compact apartment, which comprises 45 square meters, is essentially one open space divided into two by a single, ceramic-clad wall. The dwelling is located in a new residential building in the Old Town of Vilnius and has been commissioned by a frequent traveller, who uses it for short stays in the capital of Lithuania.
Bazillion Apartment: Warm and Cold Interior Decor in Lithuania

The interior is designed by YCL Studio, an upcoming Vilnius-based office, led by architects Tomas Umbrasas, Aidas Barzda, Tautvydas Vileikis and graphic designer Rokas Kontvainis.They describe their company, which was founded in 2011, as an architectural collaborative ’operating in the fields of architecture, interior, planning, urban space, landscape design and research projects.’ They position themselves as ’part of the new generation of Lithuanian architects’ and state, ‘We use our international experience to enrich and strengthen local architecture as well as to spread the word internationally.’ This apartment, which has gained a degree of international fame, is viewed by Aida Barzda to be the happy outcome of working for an appreciative and open-minded client and collaborating with engaged suppliers and builders. Within the range of scales YCL Studio operates, this interior is definitely among their smaller jobs.
Bazillion Apartment: Warm and Cold Interior Decor in Lithuania

In this apartment, the designers from YCL have made one clever adaptation to conquer and divide the space: an oblique wall which splits the interior into two equal parts, one containing the living area and kitchen, the other the bedroom and bathroom. The former is cool and light, the latter warm and massive. The cool part has a white wooden floor, a white ceiling and white walls, while the floor and walls of the warm part are covered in tiles in three shades of an earthy reddish brown. The concrete ceiling of this part of the apartment is painted as well, in a terra cotta colour close to those of the tiles.
Bazillion Apartment: Warm and Cold Interior Decor in Lithuania
The two contrasting parts of the interior are tied together by furniture in black, white and grey. The absence of any other colour than terra cotta has a strong effect, giving the slightly unusual impression of being in a partially coloured black-and-white movie. A comparable monochromatic colour strategy has been used by YCL in several other projects, such as theVINTED office interior, featuring black, white and grey furniture as well, where one area is grey, another green, yet another yellow and the entrance area purple.
Bazillion Apartment: Warm and Cold Interior Decor in Lithuania
In the process of designing the apartment’s interior, the architects have explored multiple possibilities to maximise the difference between the two parts, testing different contrasts in material and colour work. As Barzda says, ’We imagined that the day is bright, full of light, talks, friends, food while the night time asks for a private, safe and cosy place, and is a bit dark, and sleepy. This opposition is articulated by drawing a sharp line.’ Expressing these different moods in a relatively contained space has been the leading concept and has driven every design decision here, letting nothing divert the attention. Barzda notes that for them, and the client, who was fond of the idea, the apartment should have a strong and unconventional character.
Bazillion Apartment: Warm and Cold Interior Decor in Lithuania
The contrast they have opted for, white wood versus terra-cotta-coloured ceramics, is not only strong in itself, but contains an intriguing twist as well. The conventional division in apartments is based on the presence, or absence, of running water. Usually the kitchen, bathroom and toilet are grouped together and often treated as a unit. In this case, the material of choice for the ‘wet’ part of a dwelling is not applied in the kitchen, while the bedroom is clad with ceramics.

As Barzda sees it, there were several reasons to utilise these tiles: ’We wanted to use a natural material which could ”fill the space” and would suggest that it would be there permanently.’ The terra cotta hints at the red bricks used throughout the Old Town. Moreover, the designers believe ceramics could evoke the calm atmosphere they were seeking. Most importantly perhaps for the critical success of this interior is how the tiles have been liberated from their common, limited role and have become the front and centre of the interior. In this way, the Bazillion Apartment convincingly underlines the versatility of ceramic products.
