The Garden House

See on Scoop.itJUST ARCHITECTURE

The Garden House is a new 1,900-square-foot house at the far end of the rear garden of a Victorian house in Battersea, South West London.

A modern family conundrum was the unexpected catalyst for the creation of the new annex — the immediate need of a newly married couple bringing two families together and requiring additional space to accommodate seven children.

The design of The Garden House has been driven by three challenges including the clients’ ambitious requirement for increased space; the need to incorporate compulsory flood-proofing measures due to the site’s close proximity to the River Thames; as well as complying with planning restrictions to prevent the overlooking of neighboring properties.

Visit the Forgotten World of Hashima, an Abandoned Japanese Island

See on Scoop.itJUST ARCHITECTURE

I am writing this article from a wood and leather clad coffee shop inside of a disused textile factory. The massive brick walls are punctuated by an arched entry way, while new fixtures and furniture revamp the space into a beautiful mix of old and new, nostalgia and the contemporary. But not all post-industrial spaces meet the same fate. Many lay wasted, meant only for illegal events or housing, or nothing at all. In larger cities, something usually finds its way into these vacant places, but what if an entire island remained unused? Photos by Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre That is what happened to Hashima, an island near Nagasaki, Japan, and once home to a huge coal mining operation owned by Mitsubishi. One of the densest places in …

A studio and roof terrace in an adjoining house to the Frida Kahlo Garden in Mexico City ends facing Venustiano Carranza Street in La Conchita patrimonial wooded square.
