So much more than a pile of stones. The transformation of a ramshackle series of buildings into a minimalist, contemporary home is a thing of beauty while showing respect for place, materials and history. Rustic yet ultra modern the stone house in Scaiano, Switzerland by Wespi de Meuron Romeo Architects.
The two intersecting blocks that comprise this Woollahra house by Sydney-based architectural firm Tzannes Associates have been arranged to suit an irregular site. More so they are like two giant arms wide open to embrace the outside. With walls and windows that slide and concertina the interiors become part of the garden. What a joy to have that flowering magnolia as part of your living room.
Looking for an architect who can take the ugly out of a space and make it marvelous? ARCH angels Architects located in Brighton, UK are well versed on the art of architectural transformations of homes (and new builds of course). I have some before and afters coming up in my next post that are sure to impress, but first, a little sample of this firm's work.
