Studio Creative Space Architectural Design envisioned and implemented an imposing contemporary project located in the Lakes, a subdivision of Tauranga in New Zaland. The Lakes House was especially designed to serve the living needs of a family with three children; the building also accommodates an architecture office. Here is more information from the lead architect: “The brief demanded that the home showcased our unique style of design and stimulated other home owners into stepping outside the usual combinations of methods and materials we commonly see. Great design creates great value and when investing in a new home it seems only natural to create something interesting that reflects all aspects of personality and lifestyle. I really cannot tell you enough about the fundamental level of success this home possesses. I believe the key to this level of success was spending the time to define a detailed brief that satisfied and maximized our hopes and dreams.” [Photos by Creative Space Architectural Design]
These days, a building doesnt just have to look good, it should ideally be good for the environment too. A great example of sustainability spliced with style from the past few years is the M&S store at Cheshire Oaks Retail Park in Ellesmere Port, designed by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.
Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts
