Fisherman Apartment / Gosplan Architects

Fisherman Apartment by Gosplan

Fisherman Apartment is a small flat renovated by Gosplan, an Italian architecture and design studio founded in Genoa by Federico Bellegoni, Nicola Lunardi, Veronica Rusca and Lorenzo Trompetto.

From the architect: Boccadasse is a small fishermen harbour in Genoa that inspired many poets and singers with its narrow streets and its beautiful little beach. The tiny flat we refurbished is a typical Genoese “tower house” on four floors, with narrow and steep stairs, whose surface of just 35 square meters is covered by a gambrel roof.

The owner’s request was to have more storage spaces as possible, a kitchen with a pantry, a work station, a double room, a comfortable living room with a second bed and a play-relax space for a kid.

With a very limited budget, our answer to these requests was a tailored apartment where all wooden furniture were custom made and realized by carpenters. A double high space connects the main room (3×6 meters), hosting the kitchen and the living room, with the upstairs bedroom. A pulley moves up and down a desk, allowing to reach the white net suspended on the empty space, while the bed headboard hides a spacious closet.

Herzliya House in Israel / archiFETO

The size of the lot is approximately half a dunam; the area of the Herzliya house is about 320 square meters. As soon as we saw the location – its proximity to the Herzliya sea – we immediately felt that the required design for the building’s envelope had to be clean and modern, while featuring facades resting on an old stone hill surrounded by water.

UPHouse in Madrid – a Recycled House into Another House

UPHouse is the tail of a simple operation: the introduction of a space of intimate scale into another space, which, being domestic, is exposed and social. The project indeed adds 50% more area to the apartment by installing a light steel structure and a staircase that allows access to the new upper floor.
