Abierta house is a project for a couple of my dearest friends. A small piece of land in one of the most exclusive developments in the city was the perfect excuse to put on practice what the project represents itself: unfold the barrier between the outdoor and the indoor space.
The first house designed and built by our architect studio is located on a small piece of land between Kopřivnice and Štramberk. It was built in a former recreation area where a large, old Chestnut tree was growing in an overrun field. This beautiful tree was a focal point for this property and the house became known as Chestnut House.
ROARINGWILD is a local clothing brand of urban-street-style in Shenzhen. It takes an attitude of ROAR (Respect, Overcome, Attitude, Responsibility) to form its own values which can lead us to be positive and have deep affection for life.
In the city centre of Amsterdam a hidden gem is built in an old canal house. The design was made in cooperation with Joyce Kelder. The canal house was built in the beginning of the 17th century.
The protagonist of the project is an 80-year-old “Pich” tree. The Tree House is design around the tree, through the use of an “L” scheme, geometrizing the land, an opening gesture is achieved towards the tree.
This project was an adaptive reuse of a quintessentially ‘humble’ ranch home dating back from the post war era. What it lacks in ‘architectural significance’ is made up by its location. It benefits by an advantageous location on the site that would have been lost had we decided to demolish and rebuild.
