A Place to Catch (SEA) Breeze in Brisbane, Australia by BLOXAS + Chian Quah

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

This proposal has considered the climactic condition and placement of Brisbane, within it’s geographical context. Brisbane city is located approximately 21kms inland from the nearest coastal edge. Subsequently it is starved of any significant reprievable, or recurrent, sea breeze. This, coupled with Brisbane’s unforgiving sub tropical summer humidity, was the idealistic catalyst for this design concept. Slender, sculptured towers range in height depending on their topographical location.

Fullerton And Belmont Stations in Chicago, Illinois by Ross-Barney Architects

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

The design of the Fullerton and Belmont Stations are a balance of many influences and attempts to bridge the perceived gap between safety, accessibility, and connections to neighborhoods by creating a consistent, recognizable branding for the transit system, while providing unique amenities within open-air plazas at each locality.

The plazas enclose controlled entrances into the stations. In the main plazas, fare collection gateways are supported by flanking white brick pylons that lead to monumental stairs, from which lighter stairs connect to the platforms. Within the plazas, concrete columns taper to provide visual relief and a canvass for artwork bearing the weight of the new, sound-dampening track structure above.

Linda Flora Residence in Los Angeles by Shubin+Donaldson Architects

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

This 26,800 sq.ft. home not only merges with its remarkable environment, but virtually disappears. Except for a few deft lines and angles – such as the ordered rows of the surrounding vineyard – there is very little perceivable ‘built’ presence. The entrance is marked by a single low wall, delicately cut into the land while sheltering a stairway that immediately begins the descent into the home.

Vader House in Fitzroy, Melbourne, Australia by Andrew Maynard Architects

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

The Vader House is an extension to a Victorian terrace in the dense inner-city. The high boundary walls, built in disregard of existing height regulations long before such rules were created, permitted a non-standard height along the northern boundary. The roofline then abruptly turns to follow the dictated set-back lines, resulting in a playful and telling interpretation of planning rules. All the new works surround an outdoor courtyard space which becomes the new centre of the house- accessed by a series of glass doors it is the opposite of the dark masonry-clad rooms of the old house. The refined palate of materials is subverted where volumes are removed to reveal the flesh inside – coloured bright red with glass tiles and joinery.
