Carnegie Gallery House was created in response to our clients request for a compact home that would also allow them to create and exhibit their art collection. By placing a combined gallery and studio space upstairs and incorporating a large, north facing void over the living space below, the art is visible from all angles. Deep timber eaves over the second floor shade the expansive windows, while the ceiling bends gently up to the south to capture cooling breezes.

The two-storey void allows solar energy to pour through tall windows, bathing the living spaces and the core of the home in sunlight. Large doors open up to the garden while high windows offer sky views to the horizon. From the street, the home is welcoming, open and scaled to fit into the neighbourhood, showing sensitivity to its surrounding environment.

The end result is an easy living home that provides a high level of natural comfort and sustainability in a unique gallery setting.

Striking Desert House in Tucson, Arizona / Kevin B. Howard Architects

We were very fortunate to work with a couple who, devoted to the ideals of minimalism’s stark allure, asked us to design a house in the foothills of Tucson, Arizona, located in the profoundly diverse Sonoran Desert. The owners’ refined sense of contrast required a “modern, minimal home: a pristine box that seemed to have landed in the desert.”

Radical Refurbishment of a Mid-Terrace Property in West London

Two-Bedroom Residence Showcasing an Asymmetrical Geometry

This two-bedroom residence, located in Owczarnia, a village near Warsaw, to a large degree owes its form to its owners, who, wanting a personalized, unique look, agreed to a spatial composition that departed from that of the archetypal home.
