Sarreguemines Nursery in France by Paul Le Quernec & Michel Grasso Architect

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

Article source: Paul Le Quernec & Michel Grasso Architect

The project is designed as a body cell, placing the nursery at the center of the layout as the nucleus, surrounding gardens as the cytoplasm, and a circumscribing enclosing wall as the membrane.
A large outdoor playground is generated through a continuous curvilinear wall that shapes out the boundaries of the facility. The “vaginal” entrance is characterized by a concrete vault which is a continuation of the peripheral wall. Floating within its membrane, the nursery welcomes visitors into a round space at the center of the building, enlightened by a covered patio.

Parcel D in San Juan, Puerto Rico by Oppenheim Architecture + Design LLP

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

Article source: Oppenheim Architecture + Design LLP

The project challenges the common residential typology, aiming for a hybrid between a single family home and an urban residence.  To this end our approach responds not only to the specific zoning and programmatic criteria, but also takes as a point of departure the natural landscapes of the island, in particular El Yunque Rainforest (Forest in the Clouds). It also glances across notions of aerial gardens particularly those mythologized in the sketches of [KM] ancient Babylon.

Villa Wilderness in South Africa by Van Ringen Architecten

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

Article source: Van Ringen Architecten

The northern facade facing the street is one storey high with three storeys on the southern facade running down to the beach. The northern trajectory of the Sun and the casting of shadows to the south is the primary reason that the terraces facing the beach have been projected southward – thereby increasing external exposure to sunlight whilst at the same time increasing interior shade within the villa. The southern facade has been made mostly transparent to enable views of the Indian Ocean from every room. Floor to ceiling windows (up to 4,5 meter) offer panoramic views over the ocean.

The biggest challenge to build this housing complex was to get the most out of space in a complicated land. The architect is a mediator between the need for the developer to generate added value and to do the right thing for the final user and the city.

I work in the studio of Martin Rajniš for more than a year. Did my opponent’s thesis at the Academy of Fine Arts. Personally, I did not know the professor. Martin, as he introduced himself at the very beginning is a very straight man. They all relate to him and offered me if I do not want himto do some time. May said the next morning I come to see him in office. What I had to say?Scheduled holidays did not take place.
