Palazzo Doria Pamphilj as we know it today is the result of at least five diﬀerent construction phases spanning four centuries. Through a process of successive agglomeration, the monumental complex finally became a unitarian urban block.
Rylston Road is the transformation of an old tyre shop into two beautifully designed maisonettes. The lower flat is a slick and colourful duplex apartment with a huge, warehouse-like, open living room/kitchen area opening onto the garden.
This Chelsea apartment occupies the top floor of one of a series of brick rowhouses that were joined together to create a larger building. In the existing layout, the street frontage of the unit is split between the living and dining spaces on one side and one large bedroom on the other.
Influenced by coveted Italian villas and the clients collection of Asian artifacts, the Waverly Place Loft combines an eclectic mix of antiques with textured, classically-inspired materials including oil rubbed bronze finishings, rich wood ceilings and limestone floors cleverly shaped to resemble ceramic tiles.
A Montreal concrete house built in the 1990s needed an update. The closed-in kitchen created a wall between the living spaces, and the decor, in saturated primary colours, produced a rather cold atmosphere. In 2017, the owners decided to refresh the property with a more contemporary and all-encompassing look.
The concept of layout in this project is generated from this Chinese character “永”. The arc in the living room is like the last stroke of this word, presenting the dynamic relationship between common areas and private rooms.
