Hof is a new country residence in the Skakafjörður fjord, less than 100km from the Arctic Circle in Iceland.

The spectacle of the location, its remoteness and special program fuelled a unique rapport between the client, contractor and architect resulting in a building that is in every respect a direct consequence of that collaboration.

STUDIOS was selected by the City of San Jose to design the Evergreen Branch Library, part of a public bond-funded group of city branch libraries.



The architecture of the new one-story library—which is sited adjacent to a public park amid a largely residential area—conveys a distinct civic presence without disrupting the scale of neighboring structures. A pronounced canopy supported by a large concrete column marks the building’s entryway.

TEHAMA GRASSHOPPER.jpg







This house, located in San Francisco, California. provides a surprising integration of old and new elements, of competing urban forces, brings the remodeled warehouse alive.


Three stories of interlocked spaces have distinct personalities and functions: office, main living area, and penthouse. The rigidity of the original concrete structure is broken down in a subtle interplay of light, surfaces, levels, and indoor and outdoor spaces—making the urban living experience as richly textured as the city itself.

Netherland based Next Architects had the tedious task of integrating a bridge transporting motor-vehicle traffic through the ecological zone of the Glanerbeek.




The focus was the preservation of the continuity for both the green landscape and the flow of vehicular circulation. Above the brook the bridge transforms according to visual and ecological demands, with a creative use of building material that helped the bridge to blend in.

Regeneration embodies the sequences of devastation, survival, rebirth, adaptation and life. In war, nature—comprising the land and the human spirit nurtured thereon—is ravaged and seemingly destroyed.


Miraculously and somehow inevitably, however, nature survives and regenerates as the power of life prevails. It is this process of regeneration and healing that nourishes and rekindles human hope, faith and courage.


Located in the Ottawa, Canada, the project's conception is a joint venture between Moriyama & Teshima Architects and  Griffiths Rankin Cook Architects.

BGP arquitectura - Casa AV Print E-mail

One of the hardest and most challenging tasks for an architect designing a house is to take an existing project and transforming it into a house that is geared towards a more contemporary lifestyle.

With Casa AV, BGP arquitectura has been able to achieve great results in the redesigning of a house from the 70’s of no significant architectural value and located in front of one of the most important avenues of Mexico City.

What is most impressive is the fact that, due to a retrained budget, the original structure was kept intact.
