Serlachius Museum Gösta Extension Proposal by FRAMA Architects BDA

Serlachius Museum Gösta Extension Proposal by FRAMA Architects BDA

FRAMA Architects main objective was to reduce the impact of the volume on the delicate site and to intertwine the building with the beautiful environment. Through the “heart and wings” concept the large building mass of 4700sqm is scattered around a central heart. The new building is split up into a number of squares that form a dialectic relationship towards the site and the existing Museum building. These square like building wings are arranged in a circular manner to form the central space, “the Heart” of the new Museum Extension. Joenniemi Manor, the existing museum building, is a very particular one of these wings as the tallest and oldest, its sublime presence is still untouched and engages in an interesting dialogue with the new clustered building addition that is cautiously connected by a barely visible underground passageway.

On a site adjacent to the main street of Pieterlen 12 residential units were built. On the site, there existed an old watch factory, which was partly demolished. A simple body is built and added to the existing studio. The issue of integration for the residential and factory buildings was to be recorded and re-interpreted.

Matsu Flagship Store in Shanghai, China by EXH Design

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

Article source: EXH Design

The Matsu Flagship Store is located on the noisy Zhaojiabang Road. To isolate the store from its buzzing environment, we aimed to make it “a store under the trees”. The façade is made of aluminum panels with Gingko leaf patterns. As the sun is gently filtered through the perforated façade and the leaf shadows are cast upon the floor, one feels as if he is wandering amongst the gingko trees. The leaf shapes cut from the aluminum panels were then embedded in the interior concrete floor, allowing people to revel in the romance of fallen leaves.

Tallinn Music High School, Ballet School and Georg Otsa Music School in Estonia by Atelier Thomas Pucher

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

Article source: Atelier Thomas Pucher

The key concept was to create not only a building but also a new meaningful city space connecting the people, the place, its history and their music. The building delimits the boundaries of the plot, enclosing an expanse of green at its core: a garden that is urban yet isolated from the hubbub of the city.
