A Single residence in a 40’-0” X 60’-0” plot evolved from a rigorous inquiry into the particulars of location and program. Our client, Mr. P.V.Varghese, is a valued partner, in our collaborative design process. As a response to his design brief, we came up with idea of “Tree hugger House”.n“As an architect, one needs to design a built environment, rather than just being a shelter.”

This luxury residential project enjoys a privileged location in Mexico City and peerless natural surroundings. The site has a very rugged topography so it was decided to integrate as far as possible the architecture to these natural formations, with the aim of respecting the environment and exploiting the extraordinary panoramic views of the city that can be seen between the vegetation.

This project consisted in the renovation of an old Japanese house in Sakura city, Chiba prefecture, Japan. The very low genkan (entrance porch) leads into a double-height living room flanked by wide engawa (side porches) protected by wide glazed openings. With celling heights that range from 1.8m to 5m, we wanted to create a variety of interior scales, and a place beyond the framework of the ‘housing’ architectural genre.

T2 Residence / fyc architects

October 18, 2018 Rayen Sagredo 0

Within a constrained inner city block no more than 147sqm, the brief was to construct a single family residence that felt spacious, with a minimum of 3 bedrooms and sizeable courtyard that could provide the potential of onsite carparking. To accommodate the spatial requirements, the only was up; with sleeping and private quarters upstairs and public living spaces, and guest bedroom downstairs. Sited along north side of a street that are characterised by workers cottages of the early 1900s, its opposite is characterised by residential warehouse conversions, the proposal walks the tightrope between the old and the new. As a nod to the prolific housing typology of the area, through its use of materials, T2 Residence reinterprets the workers cottage into a modern timber clad family home that adopts the idyllic image of the ‘house’, carrying it through to the details exampled in the profile of its front fence.

Bethnal Green Mission Church / Gatti Routh Rhodes Architects

October 18, 2018 Rayen Sagredo 0

Bethnal Green Mission Church in London’s East End represents a ground-breaking model for contemporary places of worship in dense urban environments. Appearing as a robust urban block, the building is actually a complex mixed-use development with a church at its heart. The project was funded by the creation of 14 residences – known as the Macpherson Apartments after the church’s founder – as well as co-working facilities for charities, a community hall, café, community kitchen, foodbank store and vicarage. The new project, which replaces a former 50s building on the site, was designed by emerging architectural practice Gatti Routh Rhodes for a partnership between the Bethnal Green Mission Church and developers Thornsett.
