Richmond House by Morris Partnership

Morris Partnership designed the Richmond house in a suburb of Melbourne, Australia. Project description This inner city site confronted the Architect, Michael Morris, with a number of challenges: Overlooking on three sides An adjacent Victorian cottage to the west boundary. A barren three storey block of flats to the east boundary Restrictive heritage controls exercised by the local government A small site size of 264 square metres. A mature peppercorn tree tumbling over the frontage from the adjacent site. Responding boldly to these challenges, the Architect has embraced the best of the eclectic neighbourhood and celebrated the tension of this inner city location.

Alina Coffee Table Transforms Into A Small Dining Room Set for Two

The Alina coffee table at first glance looks exactly like such: a modern, stylish yet simple coffee table . However, there’s much more than meets the eye. We can decompose the table with the unexpected extraction of two benches that used to be part of the table. Once extracted and rotated, we have two benches for up to two people each for unexpected guests while keeping a smaller central coffee table. As if this was little, we can lift the coffee table through a gas mechanism system and make the whole decomposed set into a small dinning room set for two. The surface area of this table is more than sufficient for two plates, two glasses and a good bottle of wine! The design is made of bent lacquered plywood, and finished by a CNC cutting machine. The rest of the materials are stainless steel and tempered glass. Designer : Claudio Sibille Tuvie has received “Alina Coffee Table” project from our ‘ Submit A Design ‘ feature, where we welcome our readers to submit their design

Copper Sky Private Residence by Swaback Partners

Swaback Partners have designed the Copper Sky Private Residence in Paradise Valley, Arizona. Project description Sensitive site placement and the integration of regionally appropriate colors and materials applied with integrity and craftsmanship to establish a modest statement for a home that is anything but modest. Rather than creating a dominant mountaintop statement, emphasize conformity to the steep grades and celebrate living in the desert environment with a focus toward conservation, sustainability and efficiency. The site was acquired with significant prior disturbance and non-natural shaping resulting from demolition of a dilapidated home that had been removed from the site. Considerable grading was necessary to re-create historic native shaping and boulder outcroppings. A balance of boulder placement and masonry retaining walls facilitated a modest development footprint for the meandering driveway and home. The uphill side of the home required site s
