A dispute over thousands of dollars in unpaid service fees threatens to leave residents stranded in a sweltering building after paying $55,000 in cash to live in the tower for the year.

Comments Off on YLab Arquitectos’ Home Renovation in Cerdanyola del Vallès Unifies Interior and Exterior Spaces

For the renovation of a single-family home in the Bellaterra quarter of Cerdanyola del Vallès, Spain, YLab Arquitectos oversaw a complete rehabilitation of the interior spaces, as well as the rebuilding of the existing façades and landscape work on the terraces, pool and garden. The home, which is located near Barcelona in Cerdanyola del Vallès, enjoys excellent views of the surrounding gardens, and the designers at YLab sought to maximize those views while bringing more natural light into the interior spaces, which were shaded and dark. The completed renovation unifies interior and exterior spaces, resulting in a much more enjoyable home. + YLAB Arquitectos The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Fox Johnston Architects’ Balmoral Home Responds to its Surroundings

This home in Balmoral was designed by Sydney-based  Fox Johnston Architects as a series of platforms that respond to the rhythm and topography of the site. A long linear form to the west contains sleeping areas and bathrooms on the lower level while the upper level accomodates living areas and a media room. The upper level roof flips up to the north and opens completely onto a northeast-facing deck. Sliding external walls and screens can open and close to provide privacy or sun control. The home’s long, narrow profile and orientation allows good cross ventilation and sun filtration throughout. + Fox Johnston Photos by Brett Boardman Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: Balmoral , Balmoral House , Daylighting , Fox Johnson , Fox Johnston Architects , Luxury Housing , modern house , natural lighting , natural ventilation , residential architecture , Sustainable Building
