Alkhemist Architects duplicates house for brothers in Bangkok

Local-based Alkhemist Architects was commissioned to erect two houses belonging to a pair of brothers. Located in a suburban gated community in Bangkok, Thailand, the siblings, who are very close but have different lifestyles, wish to live close to each other and spend some time together. However, they also want to establish a private distance whenever is needed. The architect began the design process by using one simple building typology that would be then repeated on both houses. Once this design development got into detail level, the logic of repetition evolved to fit the different needs of each individual. As a result, the two houses look similar on a first glance, yet they differ once they dwelled within them.

Italian artist Edoardo Tresoldi has used wire to recreate an early Christian church on an archaeological site in Siponto, a port town in southern Italy. The huge installation is located on the site of a church built in the Roman settlement between the 11th and 12th centuries, but deserted following earthquakes in the 13th century. Tresoldi, who specialises in large-scale wire sculptures, has previously created both architectural and figurative pieces for venues including the British art and music festival Secret Garden Party. But this sculpture will remain in place indefinitely.

Suburban dream: nature and concrete meet in this Canadian home

Don’t let the verdant surroundings of Angela Tsementzis’ Concrete House fool you; this home, perched on a slope within the quiet and leafy location of Toronto’s Moore Park Ravine, is conveniently located only a 15 minute drive away from the city’s downtown center district. This urban oasis was built for husband and wife John Pylypczak and Diti Katona and their two children. The couple, who run a branding studio, wished for the design of the 380 sq m home to be centred around their passion for nature, and ‘pure, honest and refined aesthetics.’
