After the clients decided that they wanted to transform their 1920’s duplex into a comfortable and bright living space, they contacted nature humaine to deal with this project. The owners requested three bedrooms and an office space at the second storey. The house looked quite dull and there were plenty of things that needed an upgrade. To start with, the back of the house was transformed completely. The living space became more transparent and more connected to the outdoors. “An emphasis on transparency creates constant visual and physical connections with the backyard.” 

“A cedar clad volume, containing the master bedroom, punches through the glass exterior wall and cantelivers over the backyard, sheltering the patio below. The wood cladding continues through to the inside, blurring the boundaries between interior and exterior.” The ground floor accommodates a living room and an open plan kitchen, oriented towards the courtyard. Airy and comfortable, the interior is nicely organised,  respecting a very simple design line. To create a cozy ambience and a warm living environment, the architects decided to use wood as main material.

What is new and exciting now can quickly begin to look tired and out of fashion, so the best buildings don’t just consider what will be interesting to look at now, but also how it might look to people in five, fifty or even a hundred years’ time. 2013’s hotly contested RIBA Stirling Prize went to Witherford Watson Mann Architects for their work on Astley Castle, Warwickshire. In what RIBA Past President Stephen Hodder has described as an extreme retrofit, the project essentially saw a new building inserted subtly into the heart of the old, with a new, two storey residence now hidden within the sandstone walls of the ruins of this medieval castle, to be used as a holiday home for up to eight guests

Value for money is not, and never was, the same as being cheap. Value for money means making the most of whatever budget is available. A good example of this is Hayes Primary School in London, by Hayhurst and Co. Having to contend with a tightly controlled 3 million local authority budget, they worked with the existing structure of the primary school to give it a much needed update. A striking polished stainless steel brise-soleil facade installed at the school’s entrance, gives the school’s many different buildings a sense of identity, while new classrooms have been created in a range of shapes and sizes, and are often flooded with natural light
