Hallandale Beach, Florida - US
The style of the house is based on a contemporary / modern design where a play of different volumes are part of the game. Contrary to the volumetric of the house, the floor plans has been designed as simple and open as possible. Thus, providing a great physical and visual flow throughout it. Also, the house faces a fantastic view over a golf course all, and so, all rooms in the house, on both levels, face towards the view. The north facade, the one viewing the golf coarse, was basically design out of glass including an incredible terrace... it is a fantastic space!

The Brennan Avenue residence is a custom home that investigates ideas of simplicity, complexity and how they can interact to create a cohesive whole. While the exterior of the project is comprised of simple forms it is realised through a complex palette of materials and articulations. Projections are framed by fins wrapped in steel cladding. The steps to the front porch, while simple in shape, are complex in their execution as the treads extend in specific locations to form planters. At the back of the house a refined wall of windows is topped with a highly expressive canopy that extends six feet from the edge of the house. The interior spaces are interwoven. The kitchen is at the heart of the main floor and flows into the living room and the dining room. The configuration of the main floor has been designed to create a unique character for both the living and dining rooms even though there are no physical barriers separating them. The living room features a wall of windows looking over the rear yard, making it feel like a floating lounge complete with a custom fire place and TV cabinet. The stairs enhance the intermingling of spaces. The stair from ground to second floor is an open riser stair and offers views of the living room and rear yard while the occupant is moving vertically through the space. The second floor includes an impressive double height space over the entrance complete with guard made from a single sheet of glass. The success of this project owes to the clarity of the design between the interior spaces and the exterior articulations of the house. It is a composition of simple moves that have been put together in a complex way.

Montréal, Québec - CA
In Lac Supérieur, outside Montreal, the Fraternité-sur-Lac resort site is home to a series of modern, modular residences designed by YH2. The firm's first home model for the development is dubbed Spahaus. Meant as vacation homes, the site's 21 cabins are designed to take advantage of the area's natural setting with large windows that overlook the forest. The Spahaus model is modular and available in five configurations. They vary in size from 1070 square feet to 1420 square feet. In the kitchen, gray laminate cabinets are topped with stainless steel countertops. A sauna is an optional feature. Cedar and concrete create a recurring visual theme from the exterior to the interior. The facade consists of exposed concrete, Galvalume roofing, and cedar or torrefied wood coating. The homes are carefully positioned to keep other structures out of sight.

The effort, time and the money required to build a generic home versus a great designed award winning one is about the same: the return on investment isn’t. Outstanding home designs gain in value as great investments do!
Design of the month

The house for a family with a child was completed in 2010 and is located on a busy street in a residential area of the city of Paderborn. In accordance with the predominant development in this area, the one-and-a-half storey building has a gabled roof, thereby deliberately integrating typologically into the existing neighborhood. The house is accessed over a gravel-covered introverted courtyard, which is closed off from the adjacent road by a concrete wall. Also the garage is accessed through the courtyard. It was designed in a way that it merges with the house and is barely noticeable. The living room, dining room, kitchen and a guest toilet are located on the ground floor, while all bedrooms and the corresponding bathrooms are situated on the first floor. A fitness room is located in the attic. The spa in the basement of the house is luminated with natural light through a walk-on skylight. Towards the public space of Husener Street, the building presents itself as largely closed. Towards the garden, however, the ground floor is dissolved in glass, thus the interior and exterior spaces merge and allow unlimited vistas.
