Forstwerkhof Burgergemeinde Biel in Bern, Switzerland by bauzeit architekten

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

Article source: bauzeit architekten

The site of the forestry center extends on both sides of the ‘Reuchenette’ road. To facilitate it’s function, the program’s content focused on only one side. Following the topography of the land, two buildings form an elongated space ending with a court for the maneuvers. The single level building dominates the main street façade and differs, both in form and aspect, from the urban architecture. Its envelope is made of rough and untreated strips of wood. It generates a oriented vertically texture, that dialogues with the forest structure and filters the light and the external views.

Theatre Park in Murska Sobota, Slovenia by Andrej Kalamar

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

Article source: Andrej Kalamar

The Cinema Park Building was erected in the 1950s from plans by the modernist architect Franc Novak. Slowly falling into disrepair, it was still used for film shows until the new century, when it became obsolete due to the construction of a new multiplex.  A solution was found in a new, more ambitious programme: a conversion into a theatre and concert hall, preserving the designated landmark building with a fitting new programme for a small city with a large theatre audience that previously lacked an adequate theatre space. This way, the city of Murska Sobota reinforces its position as a regional centre and at the same time preserves the exceptional example of modernist architecture.

Central Park District 08, Dubai International Finance Centre in UAE by Hopkins Architects

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

Article source: Hopkins Architects

Central Park District 08 is part of the Dubai International Finance Centre masterplan.

The site is located near to the extreme end of the development boundary and sits alongside one end of the axis that runs across the site, linking the Gate Building, the Emirates Towers and the World Trade Centre on the other end.  This location therefore forms a significant counterbalance to the Emirates Towers and as such lends itself to being a building with strong presence.

House of Air in San Francisco, CA by Mark Horton / Architecture

Sunday, July 17th, 2011

Article source: Mark Horton / Architecture

“National Park”, “Historic Building”, “LEED Certified”, “Architecture”, “Amusement Park” — five terms which are typically not used in the same sentence to describe a single building.

House of Air, started in 2010 by two young entrepreneurs interested in the action sports world, is a trampoline facility that caters to the discriminating taste of the young, energetic and affluent population of active San Francisco.  The breathtaking site is at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge and in the Golden Gate National Park, with expansive views out to the San Francisco Bay that become even more apparent when the 45′ wide glazed hanger door is opened.  Inside the historic biplane hanger, a large field trampoline for bouncing sits along side a trampoline dodge ball court and three performance trampolines used for both competitive jumping as well as ski / snowboard / wakeboard training.   Flanking the trampoline area are two pavilions housing a café, meeting facilities, lockers, and a lounge. Translucent blue walls lit from within are graphic interpretations of the vertical motion which takes place throughout the facility.

Maison Gauthier in Canton Bern, Switzerland by Bauzeit Architekten GmbH

Sunday, July 17th, 2011

Article source: Bauzeit Architekten GmbH

The project is articulated basing on two really simple spatial typologies. The first one, a compacted and pure single-storied level, figures the dwelling which opens onto The Alps through huge window panels, thus focusing on a frame of beautiful views. Consequently, the glazing surfaces on the entire level, structure the façade in a generous way. The panoramic window panels, fold inside thus providing a special expression to the ensemble, also forming the terrace-covered area and protected from the sun. The difference of enclosure between North and South façades, become two plain and clear lectures, two faces: “behind” the street and “on the front” The Alps as a visual limit.
