Florida Street House / Paper House Project

Florida Street House by Paper House Project

Florida Street House is a residential project completed by Paper House Project in London, E2.

From the architect: This former garment factory in Bethnal Green had previously been used as a commercial office before being converted into a large open plan live/work unit nearly ten years ago. The challenge: how to retain an open plan arrangement whilst creating defined spaces and adding a second bedroom.

By opening up the enclosed stairwell and incorporating the vertical circulation into the central atrium, we were able to add space, light and volume to the main living areas. Glazing is used throughout to bring natural light deeper into the floor plan, with obscured glass panels creating privacy for the fully refurbished bathrooms and bedrooms. The glazed atrium visually connects both floors whilst separating public and private spaces.

The industrial aesthetic of the original building has been preserved with a bespoke stainless steel kitchen, open metal staircase and exposed steel columns, complimented by the new metal-framed atrium glazing, and poured concrete resin floor.

Redondo House Renovated by Branco-DelRio Arquitectos

Villa L’escalet in Ramatuelle – with a Panoramic View to the Sea

Realized by the architect Vincent Coste, Villa L’escalet is located in Ramatuelle, near Saint Tropez, on an abrupt terrain, with a panoramic, beautiful view to the sea. As an architectural design, the house resembles a building block made from independent volumes, which allow space saving, by reducing the passage ways.

Outremont Residence / Thellend Fortin Architects

The expansion of this 1930s Outremont residence echoes the classical architectural language of this elegant residential neighbourhood. The new exterior finishing materials—hewn Saint-Marc limestone and tinned copper eaves—harmonize with those of the original structure, following an ornamental line that espouses the aesthetic canons of the era.
