The beautiful ‘Herringbone House’ by London based Atelier ChanChan in Islington, London. Photographs by Mike Tsang.
Words from the architect:
The house aims to relate to its context by taking the syntax of the local vernacular: namely gable ended roofs and the brick material of the Victorian terraces. However, the open plan interiors with ceiling to floor windows, skylights and courtyards are supported by a modern steel structure.
The combination making for a modern vernacular house inspired by the old to create something new. The ornamental herringbone brickwork was used to create personal expression and to articulate the picture windows and volumes by using framing, pattern and variety in the laying of the bricks.
Ausbau Apartment Wiesbaden is a minimalist house located in Wiesbaden, Germany, designed by Studio Oink. A small apartment in a popular area in Wiesbaden, familiarly, quiet and bright, these were some wishes of the flat owners. The designers created a light atmosphere with a touch of nature by using natural materials and old furniture.
They painted the walls in “grey” and “patina” to make it more open and roomy. They also exposed the original wood flooring and placed ceramic tiles with a special finish on the kitchen wall. Most furniture is tailor-made for each room, so that the owner would have plenty of storage for the small apartment.

A statement by the architect:
The basic request of upper and lower spatial organization and the shape of the site prompted a long and tin house with fluctuating facade which would allow for more differentiated view. The key was coming up with a multi-functional space which is a large staircase, bookshelves, casual reading space, home cinema, slide and many more… The client was very pleased with the design, and the initial design was accepted and finalized almost instantly, only with minor adjustments. The kitchen and dining space is another important space where family gathers to bond. The TV was pushed away to a smaller living room. The attic is where the best view is possible, it is used as a play room for younger kids. The multi-use stair and slice space brings much active energy to the house, not only children, but also grown ups love the slide staircase…An action filled playful house for all ages…

Growth Table //
designed by TimDurfee & IrisAnnaRegn
Growth Table is one of a series of objects and spaces modified from a variety of familiar types to sponsor specific activities for adults as well as children. It creates an instant and intergenerational community united by the simple act of drawing.
Children impulsively and un-selfconsciously indulge in spontaneous mark-making when presented with a place to sit, a rightly-positioned surface, and colorful instruments with which to draw. The Growth Table creates these conditions – but at a range of scales – to also attract older children and adults who share the memory of countless hours of childhood art-making. The structure activates a public outdoor or indoor space by providing a catalyst for spontaneous social behavior that is both exceptional and utterly familiar. When the form of the Table is multiplied or expanded, it creates a community scaled art-parklett, or transforms a public interior into a literal “drawing room.”
