Townhouse Design by David Chipperfield Architects, in Berlin, Germany 1

This Townhouse is designed by David Chipperfield Architects, located in Berlin, Germany.
Within the tight restrictions of a deep and narrow lot, the house achieves generosity through room height. The qualities of natural light and space are more important than the optimisation of surface area and flexibility. The location of the staircase on the facade, unusual for a townhouse, highlights the significance of the vertical aspect of the project. While from a material point of view, the facade is almost passive, the composition of vertical cuboids with glazed fronts creates depth and a sculptural quality.

David Chipperfield Architects has completed the Townhouse O-10 in Berlin. The building is in the new district of ‘Friedrichswerder’ which is emerging between Werderstraße and Leipziger Straße, Oberwall-, Niederwallstraße and Kurstraße. Historic areas of urban development such as England’s noted townhouse settlements of the last two centuries have served as inspiration for the new district.

Curve Townhouse Design by Studio ST Architect in New York

August 01, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Architecture, Home Design

Curve Townhouse, located in New York, Designed by Studio ST Architect. Using the typical row townhouse layout the curve townhouse stands out with its curve terraces animating the front facade. The curved bench extends to the interior creating a flowing connection between inside and outside. The public stair is housed in a curved volume which is the most efficient way to comply with the New York City Code while creating a unique interior space in the apartment. The space and materials are simple. A main space is a loft-like open area with a living room, dining room and kitchen. Two bedrooms face the quiet back yard. The bathrooms are tucked between the curved stair and the supporting exposed concrete wall.
