The project is a renovation work which has completely changed the distribution and the interior space of a 120 sm apartment built in the 60’s in Varese. The old partition walls and the long corridor have been demolished to give place to three big boxes inside the apartment
The La Pineda House is formed by three enclosures that, together with the porches, are articulated to leave an empty space (patios). In this house, a fourth element is suggested: the closed porch, an outside space in the interior, intended to be the access and main distributor of the house.
In close cooperation with the couple, architect Mette Lange designed this dream home. The result is a functional and modern wooden house with clean lines and a transparent design that offers a clear view of the surrounding reed forest, beach meadow and coast.
Bound on its northern end by the Wairarapa Stream, a body of water that feeds into the Avon River, the Fendalton House is characterised by three adjoining flat-roofed forms linked by a central visual axis and an industrial palette.
This modern guest house serves as a simple retreat overlooking Lake Washington on the western shore of Mercer Island, with an open living, kitchen and dining room on the main floor, and a bedroom with a large roof deck on the upper level.
Scandinavian notes welcome visitors to the beautiful home just outside London where Lykke from Denmark lives with her husband and their three children. After the couple bought the house two years ago, it underwent extensive renovation.
