Modern courtyard house design

Avocado Acres House

The Avocado Acres House by Lloyd Russell Architects is a modern homage to the case study houses of the 50s and 60s that put Los Angeles on the architectural map. It is defined by a long rectangular interior and a single shed roof, made visually interesting by a large u-shaped void strategically removed from this primary form. The home is programmatically simple, and relies on a richness of light, space, and materiality to produce a worthy contemporary take on the early modern classics. Continue reading

Buddhist shrine design

Waterside Buddhist Shrine

Worship spaces represent a very sacred genre of architecture. The designer is tasked with not only creating an aesthetically and acoustically beautiful object, but there must be something about the resulting spaces that is somehow elevated above human cognition. This is no easy task, but one handled with an expert sense of solemn isolation in the Waterside Buddhist Shrine. ARCHSTUDIO designed the structure to exemplify the tenets of Buddhist worship, focusing primarily on the unspoken connection between man and nature. Continue reading

Modernizing mid-century spaces is all the rage right now, with so much spatial appeal, built-in cubbies and ample windows, these box-like burrows have now become the ideal remodel projects. Newtown House is exactly one of those homes that has been turned, by Hindley & Co, from modern mid-century to an epic expanded 21st century version of its previous self, all without foregoing character or classic appeal.

Modern Extension For A Victorian Cottage

Shadow Cottage Daylesford

This residential addition is named for the way in which it is revealed from the shadows of the existing structure. With regards to materiality, form, and functional space, the design accomplishes just that. The team at MRTN Architects were tasked with retaining the character and charm of an old Victorian, which before undergoing this contemporary renovation was considered for a quick trip to the landfill. But, the designers and clients thought better, deciding rather to celebrate the beauty of the existing home, and adding a sensible bit of space that acts to pay homage to the history of the site. Continue reading
