Renovation of Sítio Rio Acima / Denis Joelsons

February 27, 2023 Susanna Moreira 0

The renovation of Sítio Rio Acima was conceived as a series of punctual interventions that when stitched together, complement each other creating a sense of unity. The sítio has been used for over forty years by different generations of the same family. The first challenge of the project was to deal with the pre-existing conditions of the site – the site’s complex had very disparate constructions, made in different periods of time, and all of them carried sentimental value to the clients. Situated on the outskirts of the city of Jundiaí, the Sítio’s constructions also allude to its neighborhood’s particular landscape, combining aspects of the rural countryside with remnant sheds and chimneys that represent symbols of the city’s not-so-recent industrialization.

Pergola Extension / Krisna Cheung Architects

January 29, 2023 Hana Abdel 0

Modification of the terrace house in the inner suburb of Melbourne is a continuity of space exploration after family occupancy. The project aims to reflect and celebrate the previously designed ‘Studio Garage Façade’ by incorporating the polycarbonate sheeting into the roof and ceiling of the living and kitchen area, opening onto the backyard, and forming a pergola. The moments created through innovative roofing are an exciting journey to be taken on and shared by the clients. The angled polycarbonate roofing combined with an open plan of the residence’s corridor through to the backyard visually connects the indoors to the outdoors. The project’s open plan was made possible by relocating the kitchen and deleting the corridor in between the living and the backyard area where the kitchen bench joinery extending to the living area and the backyard transforms into shelves and a BBQ bench respectively, to create a fluid connection of spaces. The materiality of the joinery pays a tribute to the steel from the existing staircase designed in the 1990s and the family‐crafted timber bookshelves.
