Repost from @mazzarinoconstruction | When their construction skills team up with the architectural skills of @designdca, the outcome is always delightful. Here’s what @mazzarinoconstruction had to say about this project. “The exterior wood cladding at our recently completed (and sold out) project over on Castle Court St looks great against the two-tone painted smooth stucco. Defining architectural details through materials and finishes elevates the overall contemporary design!” | Architecture by @designdca | Construction and development by @mazzarinoconstruction
This minimalist extension in the English countryside is perfectly balanced. 🙏
Located in Hythe, Kent and designed by Folkstone-based architect Jonathan Burlow (@jonathanburlowstudio), it is inspired by 18th century rural grain store buildings found in the south of England.
The neat exterior of white stack-bonded clay brickwork is a minimal response to how grain sacks would be stacked in the grain storage buildings. Inside, minimal expression continues with a wide, open and airy interior space with a polished concrete floor.

Times to reflect. Het Hof is a project we delivered three years ago in Hertogenbosch. It’s a city block with a tower on the edge who marks an urban accent. The very dense mixed use building combines more than 260 apartments with office spaces and a coffee place.

Our experience with diverse luxurious houses has demonstrated that the richness and panache of a room can be enhanced by adding character to its design and decoration. Well, talking about this informal living space in this sumptuous house, even the walls and floor have its own character to it. The wall panel decoration with polished teak wood and fabric design looks amazingly charming. Herringbone wood flooring designed with metal strips and pure silk hand-knotted carpet from Carpet Couture is nothing but statements in itself. The striking signature paintings on the wall have their own design story. The background of the painting is done on beige Plexi with natural-stone work. Its Murano glass mosaic and Swarovski crystals in colour greige, crystal golden shadow, and light smoked topaz finish will surely take your breath away.
Day 11: We are continuing Picture Consequences but have this time called up some friends to work with! Todays sketch is a collaboration between Studioshaw, @feixandmerlin and @whiteredarchitects . We have been discussing houses a lot recently. We think that a good house is somewhere that offers a feeling of well-being with moments of charm, humour and awkwardness. It should control and organise space, views light and air in ways that are beneficial to both mental and physical health. Good quality housing for all has never been more important.
Social distancing and exterior work are going hand-in-hand this April. The last two days have been bright, sunny and warm. Not a cloud in the sky! These photos are from the Citizens for Citizens right here in Fall River, MA.
