Ghent-based practice NU Architectuuratelier have refurbished this two-storey house in the suburbs of Leuven in Belgium. Can we please talk about that stair cascading down in front of the double height window? A bit of a died-and-gone-to-heaven moment, no? The graphic black lines of the staircase are carried through in the detailing of the balustrade and sliding steel-framed glass doors that act as a divider between the public and the private areas of the house. The overall feel is pared back, rational and reduced to bare essentials, with the red floor acting as a perfect dose of the unexpected.
NU Architectuuratelier’s Bomastraat House is a single family home housed within the walls of an old industrial building, featuring a translucent ceiling.
This Deliciously Curvalicious West Melbourne loft apartment by Adrian Amore is a knockout – that staircase, the articulation of light, the sinuous forms and fluid spaces… Everything about this project literally brought us to our knees. Emphasised by a monochrome white on white palette, the twisting, bending walls take centre-stage. Initially a much more square and conventional space, the interior took on a dynamic tone when the steel truss that cut through the space was removed. With much more room to play with, Mr Amore embraced the opportunity to create something more curvy and flexible.
Edwards Moore is a Melbourne-based architecture & design studio founded by Ben Edwards and Juliet Moore. Avid followers of this blog will be familiar with these crazy kids, as we’ve featured their projects a number of times before. Their work is serious, playful, energetic and provocative in equal measure. Driven by a belief in the art of architecture, Edwards Moore take each project as an opportunity to explore new ideas and possibilities. There’s no preconceived plan or formula to their work, other than a plan to be ultra curious and get stuck in no matter what challenges might come along.
