The residents of a house in Melbourne have allowed architect Andrew Maynard to reveal their living spaces to passers-by, with a timber-framed extension that slots into the perimeter fence. The extension to a 1930s property on Della Torre Crescent, in the city’s Ivanhoe neighbourhood, was designed to provide a new kitchen, dining room, living area, bedroom and bathroom for a family of five.

Set in a mountainous region of Brazil – known for its low temperatures – the ‘Mororó House’ has been designed to offer generous internal spaces that provide residents with inviting atmospheres on cold days. Recently completed by Studio MK27, continuous volumes create a stark duality between an opaque block – where the living room is found – and the transparent area which houses a heated pool and sauna. An external wooden deck connects the programs, serving as a solarium to be used during winter months.

Photographers BJ and Richeille Formento met exactly a decade ago, while working on a common assignment, and have been partners in both life and work ever since. Together they travel around the world, creating highly inspirational visual series that treat the human persona as prime matter that can be re-shaped through the most unconventional of scenarios.

Swiss architect Laurent Savioz of Savioz Fabrizzi Architects has transformed an existing structure in the fields of Ayent, Switzerland into a holiday house for his family. Originally built as a barn in 1882, the building was then transformed into a house in the 1980’s through the addition of a second floor before Savioz gave it a more contemporary make-over in 2013.

Takeda’s creations will also soon grace the front of Frame’s forthcoming book Postdigital Artisans and we caught up with the artist to discover more about her craft.
