“Don’t Let the Internet Design Your Project” New post today on LifeofanArchitect.com . It only happens a few times a year, but I felt the need to climb up on my soapbox and talk about the schematic design process and the relationship between the architect and the client during this period of collaboration. Some people just love to give their opinions whether they know anything about the project or not. After writing a site like mine for so long, I no longer criticize the work of others in a casual manner because I don’t know enough to pass judgement. . . . . . . . #lifeofanarchitect #whatthisarchitectdoes #drawing #design #sketch #architect #architecture #residentialarchitect at Life of an Architect

The need for our garage and granny unit remodel started right here, with the dark - shared entry into both spaces. Unwelcoming, and not belonging to either side. First thing I did was paint the room after buying our property last March. It helped so much but didn't solve the problem. I was testing out the garage as my office and we had a 6 month trial lease with a tenant in the unit. So this door, entryway, shared space was our catalyst and motivating factor for our garage and granny unit remodel. We've added several doors, and moved several walls. This is now a light filled hall leading to the granny unit's backyard. The dead space under the stair is intended as a washer / dryer closet, with a small storage closet next to it. The light filters all the way to the kitchen, adding a glimpse of an indoor oudoor connection. . . . #beforeandafter #inprogress #light #indooroutdoorliving #indooroutdoor #door #patiodoor #dark #paint #dogsofinstagram #architect #whatthisarchitectdoes #remodel #diy #construction #pasorobles #sanluisobispo #nofilter #hamblyhomes

The power supply will be cut off after the last worker has prepared for bed. After that, there will be no light besides the stars, no sound besides the crickets and a bleak December landscape is all you can see. Last night we lit a fire. A great way to loosen up from a day's work. Also a good alternative to Christmas lights. 😁 Going back to the city soon. Merry Christmas everyone! #whatthisarchitectdoes #christmasfeels

Transformation old school into industrial appartement in Breda. Design by van Os Architecten. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ This is the old class room with high ceiling and big windows for natural light. We made it into the main living area. The space was huge so we decided to split the room into a living area and a bedroom with wall in closet. ⁣ ⁣⁣ The high ceiling makes the space more vertical and is amazing. But it makes it possible to double use the height for a closet below and a photography studio above. Supercool space. The studio is pushed into the living area via a big closet. ⁣ ⁣ Do you see the big pivot door? It’s 4m high! at Van Os Architecten

Transformation old school into industrial appartement in Breda. Design by van Os Architecten. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Opening between kitchen and living area. The lamp is big, it’s called the Great JJ, look it up, it’s huge!! Normal sized lamps wouldn’t fit in a big space.⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ The windows are also huge, almost 4m high. Great natural light. at Van Os Architecten

Being an architect means you get to use yellow painted heavy machinery. . Geoffrey Bawa, bless him, once remarked to a friend (while inviting him for lunch the following day), to be prepared for his appearance, since he would be cutting trees and tending to his garden at #Lunuganga. The following morning, his friend arrived, expected to find a sweaty #Bawa hacking away at errant branches. Instead, he found Geoffrey seated below a parasol, a G&T in hand, instructing a team through a megaphone. . In our office though, the team isn’t afraid of getting their hands dirty. These photos are from a project that is commencing and even Amit can’t resist going down to the foundation level for a closer look. A site without the base concrete seems full of possibilities and that is one of the great joys of being an #architect . #TooBadHeWasntThereLongEnoughToMakeItLookLikeAnAccident #WhatThisArchitectDoes #IndianArchitecture at Vasant Vihar, Delhi
