Pirie Street Extension reclines back onto a hill in New Town and gazes at the mountain, providing an outward focus to what was an internalised but charming 1910 cottage.  Designed to soak in the sun, capture the mountain and feel immersed in the garden, a play with volume increases the perceived size of the space whilst maintaining a modest footprint. The form is clipped and white, a crisp contrast to the soft textural garden in which it sits. Weatherboards reference the existing house, yet are unmistakably modern with mitred corners. A thin aluminium awning creates a fine, sharp eyelid. The interior is restrained as a blank canvas for paintings. Pirie St extension isn’t a home of one singular moment/gesture rather a home integrated and fit, filled with many moments.

King Eider House by Dubbe Moulder Architects

Simplistic Aesthetics with Industrial Elements: Gentle Heart of Steel by HAO Design

Simplistic aesthetics is not about enforcing strict restraints on material desires. On the contrary, it is about training ourselves to internally reflect on what we really need and care about, and getting rid of the excess to achieve ideal practicality. We fully embraced the spirit of simplistic design.

Delta House by De Jaeghere Architectuuratelier

The Delta house is situated on a seemingly lost and unusual triangular lot in Tielt but it is actually very well-oriented from a commercial point of view. It faces a busy crossroads and thanks to a green area, dominated by a beautiful, solitary oak tree there is enough breathing space to regard the project in its entirety.
