As a member of the architectural team at A4 Architect co. we decided to highlight these values and create a nostalgic space for the future residence. The design for this apartment devotes itself to the traditional composition of authentic materials which are found in the design of the surrounding neighborhood. Materials such as wood and brick. Some bricks were re-used and some were hand painted blue to become part of the facade and also the front yard landscape and the entrance. According to a local survey, the neighbors have rated Aria building’s design a 9.5 out of ten in terms of its material, visual adaptation to the surrounding neighborhood and its traditional characteristics.
