Spitalfields House / Common Ground Workshop

July 1, 2022 Andreas Luco 0

Common Ground Workshop were appointed by the client to undertake a full RIBA stage 0-5 service for an extensive family home renovation, and to provide interior and exterior designs for a 3 bedroom, 4 storey family home, located in Central London in close proximity to Spitalfields and Brick Lane. The works have completely transformed the simple and unassuming existing end-of-terrace building; when viewed from the surrounding streetscape the project’s refined but modest exterior conceals a rich inner life. When CGW took on the commission, the site comprised the original structure as well as the initial layout work and partial construction of the building superstructure and initial layouts undertaken by Studio Idealyc. CGW worked with the existing features and developed a series of minimal, flexible and sustainable spaces that responded to the owner’s current needs, spatially, stylistically and environmentally.

Wynyard Café / T-FP

The identity of Wynyard was not clear because of various things — a Korean owner-chef who learned cooking in Switzerland and Australia, French modern dining expressing various genres freely, an old building in a quiet back alley of Yeonhui-dong, a town with a strong cultural and artistic background — were mixed and coexist. We, however, thought it could be attractive as itself, and designed the space and brand with the concept of ‘ambiguity’.

Creation of Banwan Village / Almost studio

Bouyei traditional villages in the mountains
Banwan Village is located in the mountains of southwest Guizhou province. This is a very well preserved traditional Buyi village because of its remoteness. In 2016, Banwan Village was selected to be the target of reconstruction by TV station. They built a primary school there. After the mass shoot, the mountain fell silent again. Nonprofit organizations run Minor renovations until in the village. At the end of 2020, “Almost Studio” entered the mountain based on the works of senior designers. It presided over the transformation design of Bouyei traditional buildings and the environmental construction of the whole village. The cutting-edge technical is not necessary in rural area, countryside needs “not so smart” architect. Sometimes rural design has nothing to do with popular aesthetics. it requires architects to take root in the site patiently, design architectural issues from a local perspective with local materials. Architects should evaluate the technical level of the construction team and consider logistics and costs, ignore design boundaries and solve local problems effectively

Vault House / Manthan Design Studio

Every house essentially has a similar program with the only difference being the scales, but it is the client’s brief and an architect’s response to it that brings about the myriad variations of space-making that is extremely personal and yet feel universal. The vault house (1700sft) is one such response to its site which is contoured with a lake view on the West and roads on all three sides. The plan is organized around a central spine running North and south, with wings on each side. Public areas on the East and the private zone on the West give it the ease of connection while keeping the privacy intact. North entry with a set of steps set in stone leads up to the main door with a low height slab over verandah that marks the entrance.

EMK Musical Company / D-Werker Architects

The site of EMK Musical Company is located at the crossroads where Nonhyeonno – one of the major roads in Gangnam, Seoul – and Nambusunhwan-ro intersect with each other. The future benefits, which will accrue from the high rent in Gangnam, especially the high rent on the ground floor, induce conflicts between the program and the desire for the office building space with abundant interior and exterior space (including the exterior space on the ground).
