Article source: ÁBATON Architectura

Located in a privileged environment in the province of Cáceres, the goal was to transform an abandoned stable into a family home by completely renovating it in a way that would be consistent and respectful with the environment. At the end, the Studio decided that building from scratch was the best option as the stable was in a terrible shape.

Orientierungsschule Vouvry, Switzerland by Berrel Berrel Kräutler Architekten

Article source: Berrel Berrel Kräutler Architekten

The Wallisian Alps rise in silhouette above the new Vouvry district school house, which lies on a flat plain between historic Vouvry village and the Rhone river. Larger-than-life commercial structures have long defined the character of settlements along the Rhone valley, and this new construction – which accommodates both classrooms and a sports arena under one roof – fits the mold perfectly.

ANNDENNE’S CULTURAL CENTER in Belgium by LABEL ARCHITECTURE

 
August 28th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: LABEL ARCHITECTURE

Andenne’s Cultural Center’s extension has not been designed as a single appendice filling a lack of space but was rather thought as an opportunity to deal with complex problematic which were restraining the fullfilment of the building. Indeed, its situation in a disparate urban fabric, between supermarket and parking area, didn’t give approriate visibility and accessibility to the Center. At the same time, this location reveals a great potential on the landscape scale. On the banks of the river, the site is perceivable from the main road between Liège and Namur.

Project Background: There’s a dilapidated industrial factory, not far from Zibo train station, is located behind the bustling downtown. The industrial factory was established in 1943, and it was originally a pharmaceutical factory. However, as the developing of urbanization, the factory was forced to stop and move to new district. All the equipment had been removed, only left a empty factory. After abandoned for years, the factory is now have the turn of fortune’s wheel. The factory had it potential of long-span structure and its earthy texture. It became a desirable place to visit for many artists. Thus, the factory transforms the industrial relic to the contemporary art museum. The reconstruction area is a rectangle shape about 3800 sq./m, include 3 factory and a few unequal-sized storage. It was hardly to see some trees and plant, because there is a civil air defense facility under the concrete floor.
