The villa is located at the end of the site next to the existing barn. Through a long cut in the landscape the house is anchored on large surrounding. Under the ground level the bedrooms are located at this long sectional patio. The large living with dining area, kitchen, study area and playing area are located at the ground level and the 1st floor. Through voids, roof lights and high passages a tremendous spaciousness is created. The spaces which are located in the axe of the landscape are used for the sublime experience of the landscape.

Harvest City, Republic of Haiti by Kevin Schopfer

Friday, February 25th, 2011

Since the tragic earthquake of 2010, Haiti has been the subject of worldwide attention.  All would agree, the devastation seems particularly cruel to this struggling country.  Massive relief efforts have been forthcoming and have demonstrated considerable generosity and determination from individuals, organizations and countries.  For Haiti to stabilize, this effort will require a consistent long term commitment.  There is no one solution to solve all of Haiti’s problems.  Rather it will take a thoughtful program of balance and renewal.  In the most simplistic terms, much attention has been focused of establishing basic ingredient for recovery.

  1. Redistribution of population
  2. Establish stable population zones
  3. Restructure agriculture /Fishing growth
  4. Generate new economic growth generators.

On Edge by Tiago Barros

I could tell you how great the view from my apartment is, or how comfortable my new mattress is, or even how well stored and organized my stuff is, but I wouldn’t be telling you the real concept behind it.

Balancing Barn in Thorington, Suffolk by MVRDV Architect

Friday, February 25th, 2011

Balancing Barn is situated on a beautiful site by a small lake in the English countryside near Thorington in Suffolk. The Barn responds through its architecture and engineering to the site condition and natural setting. The traditional barn shape and reflective metal sheeting take their references from the local building vernacular. In this sense the Balancing Barn aims to live up to its educational goal in re-evaluating the countryside and making modern architecture accessible. Additionally, it is both a restful and exciting holiday home. Furnished to a high standard of comfort and elegance, set in a quintessentially English landscape, it engages its temporary inhabitants in an experience.

Newport Station Renovation by Grimshaw and Atkins

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

Grimshaw, in association with Atkins, has redesigned Newport Station as part of a citywide regeneration master plan by Newport Unlimited. Network Rail was the primary funder and client for the project with the Welsh Assembly Government also providing substantial financial support. While the need for regeneration of the station was created from the shortfalls of the existing facility, the impetus for its construction was the fact that the city was set to play host to the most prestigious tournament in golf, the Ryder Cup, in October 2010.

Holding Pattern in New York by Interboro Partners

Thursday, February 24th, 2011


“Holding Pattern” is the product of a sustained dialog with MoMA PS1’s courtyard and its neighbors. Instead of telling it what it should be, we patiently listened to what it and its neighbors had to say, then responded in kind. The result of this dialog is a scheme doesn’t so much redesign the courtyard as reveal it.

Vitra Fire Station in Weil am Rhein, Germany by Zaha Hadid

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

More projects by Zaha Hadid

We initiated our design with a study of the overall factory site. Our intention was to place the elements of our commission in such a way that they would not be lost between the enormous factory sheds. We also used these elements to structure the whole site, giving identity and rhythm to the main street running through the complex. This street – which stretches from the chair museum to the other end of the factory site, where the fire station is now located, was envisaged as a linear landscaped zone, almost as if it were the artificial extension of the linear patterns of the adjacent agricultural fields and vineyards. Thus, rather than designing the building as an isolated object, it was developed as the outer edge of the landscaped zone: defining space rather than occupying space. This was achieved by stretching the programme into a long, narrow building alongside the street which marks the edge of the factory site, and which also functions as a screening device against the bordering buildings.
