Developer/New Build/Overseas/ Ski Club

HEAT have been working with ALEF Architects to produce plans for a ski resort hotel North of Moscow including landscaping. The resort includes 40,000 sq ft of restaurants, club rooms, a health spa and the design consists of a series of volumes arranged around an arc with full glazing facing towards the landscape and views.

Project 130


Overseas/ Stockholm Library Competition

HEAT’s entry for the competition to extend Asplund’s iconic public library has gone on exhibition in Stockholm. The design creates a series of layers – like the pages of a book, radiating from a spine built into the hillside behind and which contains the staircase and circulation. The largely glazed skin is supported on timber laminated columns, echoing the aspen trees that Asplund used in his own work.

Overseas/ Cliff House in Ibiza

HEAT were invited by a UK based client to redesign a hillside house in Ibiza. Outside of the clubs of Ibiza town the countryside remains peaceful and unspoilt and this villa had been built over four floors by a retired German architect. In our redesign we added a lift and rearranged the interior spaces creating open plan family spaces with dramatic views.

Project 081


Overseas/ Portugal Beach House

Located in the Quinta do Lago estate in the Algarve, this was a project to restore a neglected retro 1970’s beach villa into sophisticated contemporary living space.  HEAT rebuilt the wings of the house and glazed over the double-height central courtyard creating a house that works well for two people or can be opened up for twenty.

The shape of the pool was determined by visiting the house at different times and placing bamboo sticks in the ground as the sun tracked round the site.
