Contemporary Design Scheme With a Little Extra: The Hollcroft Residence

A moderate land elevation surrounded by a pristine landscape in Portland, Oregon was considered the perfect setting for Giulietti Schouten Architects to build the modern Hollcroft Residence. Choosing red wood for the street facade resulted in a modern, yet welcoming exterior. The building resembles a large wooden box, with original window piercings on each side, establishing an optimum connection to the outdoors.

It seems that no effort was too much when designing the interiors for the Hollcroft Residence. Tall ceilings give scale to the open plan living and dining area on the first level, wrapping everything up into a highly contemporary design pattern. The color palette remains simple, defined by a powerful black and white contrast and spiced up with unexpected hues. The red pendant lamp guarding the visual kitchen-dining table border acts as a disrupting aesthetic element, adding dynamics to the social zone.

The best architects can create designs which will give clients and the public things they didn’t even realise they wanted, and this is especially important when architects are given the difficult brief of creating structures in much-loved, iconic areas.

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
