Paper House Project founder James Davies was tasked with adding an extra bedroom to the former garment warehouse in Bethnal Green, which was converted into an open-plan live-work space almost a decade ago. The architects wanted to retain as much of the open-plan layout of the property on Florida Street as possible, while redefining areas of its plan to create specific dining and lounging spaces.
Although it is a distinctly modern structure, the H3 House looks perfectly at home in the wooded area of a beautiful natural space located in northern Argentina. This summer house was completed by Luciano Kruk Architects and it illustrates the studio’s penchant for blending geometric shapes, brutalist accents and organic textures. Concrete is used throughout the building, from the external walls imprinted with the texture of wooden planks to the interior furniture which is integrated into concrete surfaces.
