  • Mazanka Apartment / Makhno Studio
    by Andreas Luco on March 7, 2021 at 11:00 AM

    Mazanka is an apartment in a Kyiv skyscraper with a view of the Dnipro river, where ancient construction technologies were used. In the Ukrainian language, мазанка (mazanka) means a small village house built of wood, clay, and reeds. The name comes from the word мазати (mazaty) — to cover something with a layer of clay. Mazanka apartment is a dialogue of our architects with the past. And its result is a step towards the originality of modern Ukrainian design and Ukrainian culture as it is. The client of the project is a young woman who shares our views of a home as a place of strength. She chose our studio to fulfill her long-held dream — eco-housing with natural materials and modern technologies being harmoniously combined, and the design sophisticatedly emphasizing the uniqueness of the space. It was important for us not only to create an interior that will meet these requirements but also become near and dear to the customer.

  • House for a Gardener / Amos Goldreich Architecture
    by Andreas Luco on March 7, 2021 at 2:00 AM

    A much-loved garden was central to our design of this side and rear extension for a Victorian mid-terrace house in the Stroud Green Conservation Area of Haringey. The project for a couple, both in property development and one a keen gardener, arranges a sequence of living spaces around the garden and an internal courtyard that gives a constant connection to greenery on the tight urban site. Oak-clad beams spanning the breadth of the expansive kitchen and dining area set up a rhythm that draws the eye out towards the garden, which is accessed through sliding glass doors. Expressing these structural elements not only offers crucial extra head height that contributes to the generosity of the space within the extension but became fundamental to our design

We dream about a place somewhere "outside the city", about our asylum, where no one will tell us what and how to do. The answer to the above is the design of Cichosza Cottages. Additionally, the Investor assumed the organic development of this place.
