11 Housing Units in a Slope in Turquant, France by 2:pm architectures

Thursday, August 4th, 2011

Article source: 2:pm architectures

Sustainable development must begin with a general reflection of the building process, including on materials. It is important to prove that today, building a sustainable and energy-efficient, is not necessarily syno­nymous with building in wood. Indeed the extensive use of a material can quickly become detrimental to the economic market. Steel is a building material to take into account development considera­tions sustainable in many aspects.

Belén Street Studio in Granada, Spain by Elisa Valero Ramos

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

Article source: Elisa Valero Ramos

Building a place for oneself is an opportunity with its own risks and difficulties. I chose a place in one of Granada’s earliest areas, the neighborhood of El Realejo enar Campo del Príncipe, on a site favored by views of the west side of the Alhambra, presided over by the Manuel de Falla Auditorium and the country house and garden of the Martyrs. Further back, behind the cedars, chestnuts, magnolias and palm trees in the gardens of the little hotels in Belén stands the Sierra Nevada mountain range. This lot would have been rejected by many because its tiny size precludes a conventional distribution. Only 3.60 meters deep and ten meters wide, this work is an exercise in minimums, a laboratory of light and construction intended for living.

980 5th Avenue in New York by Hollwich Kushner

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

Article source: Hollwich Kushner

This gut-renovated apartment is meant to function as an escape from the clents’ ordinary life that is filled with collections and objects.  They are an empty-nest couple, with a big home in the suburbs and a self-declared ‘tchatchki‘ addiction.  A renovation of the existing 2,500sf apartment clears out the center space to visually link the dining room and living room together.  The palette of the apartment is kept simple with white walls and dark floors in order to retain a purity of space.

Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2008 in London, United Kingdom by Gehry Partners, LLP

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

Article source: Gehry Partners, LLP

This temporary pavilion, the 2008 contribution to the Serpentine Gallery’s Pavilion series, is situated beside the museum on the grounds of Kensington Gardens in London.  The 418 square meter pavilion is designed as a wooden timber structure which acts as an urban street connecting the park with the permanent gallery building. Inside the pavilion, glass canopies are hung from the wooden and steel structure to protect the interior space from inclement weather and provide shade on sunny days. The pavilion is much like an amphitheater, designed to serve as a place for live performances of music and art, as well as a setting for visitors to gather and relax.
