Jeju Island, which has traces of volcanoes here and there as if it had just finished erupting, is a land where maternal nature is strongly felt. It is a place where a combination of black soil, cobalt-colored sea, and haenyeo (female diver), who live strongly in the sea, create a landscape.

This is another of our small urban house projects – the width of the property is 6.5 meters whereas the depth is only 2.5 meters. “There were challenges in designing the functional program of the house on such a small lot, in consideration of the clients’ desire of building a dream house for their children,” noted Huynh Anh Tuan, lead architect of the project and founder of Khuon Studio. “We were happy to accompany the clients in realizing a living space as comforting as possible.”

PIE House / Greenbox Design

September 17, 2020 Hana Abdel 0

This ‘Pie House’, with its own specialty, belongs to two ladies who want to start building a family together. Therefore, this is the beginning for the new architecture interpretation. We try to leave the housing typology behind and then figure out the relativity of the behavior, area and time until this house has a combination of crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

Wonder the One Room / Yota Hokibara + Tomoyo Hokibara Architects

September 16, 2020 Hana Abdel 0

It has been five years since we joined the architecture firm Takenaka Corporation in Tokyo. We found a good chance to purchase this second-hand apartment and planned to renovate it as a personal project. The concept is “wonder the one room”. We aimed to create a “one room” where you can feel the presence of the spiral staircase and skylight anywhere by dividing the space not with a wall but a curtain to unite the space and create a light atmosphere.

Factory in the Forest / Design Unit

September 16, 2020 Hana Abdel 0

Architectural competition winning entry for an electronics manufacturing plant. This site is conceived as a forest that penetrates, surrounds & steps over the building creating maximum contact with nature – green, breeze, scent, sound, touch. A canopy supported by a ‘forest’ of columns creates unity to office & courtyard while giving protection from the tropical sun. Office levels give access to roof gardens and staff are encouraged out for breaks, meetings or just contemplation.

KLG architects is a firm based in Cape Town, South Africa. The essence of the firm’s work lies in their iterative design process. The process is explored through a series of hand-drawn sketches, drawings and team discussions. These are driven by a diverse knowledge of construction and building techniques, explorations of the site, as well as the social impact in which the buildings are to be sited.

Life Block / Royal House Co.

As Japan’s population ages and the birthrate declines, fewer people are living in their homes, and the number of homeowners is shifting to the younger generation, or millennials. We believe that housing will continue to diversify as people prefer to live in their own unique ways.

September 14, 2020 Hana Abdel 0

One of the most recent actions of the Burkina Faso Ministry of Education in the fight against school dropouts has been to unify isolated schools into school complexes where education is provided from nursery to high school. The project includes the development of the new Bangre Veenem School Complex from the existing Primary school in the village of Youlou (Koudougou), as well as the construction of the Secondary school and auxiliary buildings (canteen, staff changing rooms, water tank and other service areas). In the future, the NGO and the city council will have to complete the intervention with the construction of the Nursery and the central Administration of the complex.

Da House / Gerira Architects

September 14, 2020 Hana Abdel 0

We were asked to build a house for a young married couple with children that combine a separated kitchen workspace, dedicated to the family’s restaurant chain called “PHỞ DẠ”. Inside the land plot, they express the desire to have a family workspace that connects daily life to their work so they can directly try out and invent family recipes for the “Phở”. Besides, they also seek a living space close to nature.
