Villa P in Gratz, Austria by LOVE architecture and urbanism ZT (designed using AutoCAD)

Friday, October 28th, 2011

Article source: Villa P

The site “ a relatively steep hill “ offers a stunning view over Graz. This panorama also provided the main guiding principle for the design. One additional goal was to provide direct access to the garden. Due to the very steep slope, this goal actually worked contrary to the aim of maximizing the panoramic view.

Les Grandes Tables de L’île in Paris, France by 1024 Architecture

Thursday, October 27th, 2011

Article source: 1024 Architecture

A restaurant/bar/open-air café positioned on Île Seguin in the middle of a temporary garden whilst waiting for the architect Jean Nouvel’s macro project to be implemented, Les Grandes Tables de L’ile is a place to meet, for haute cuisine and why not even parties to accompany the reconstruction of this island steeped in history. The project is an architectural hybridization between an agricultural greenhouse, a barge and a timber-frame house. Modelled after a large wood fibre box suspended in a scaffold structure from which freight containers are hanging, all encompassed beneath a transparent umbrella… An eye-catching iconoclastic assemblage with an area of 300m2 to accommodate120 covers and the cuisine of Arnaud Daguin, a chef with stars to his name.

Woodland Park Zoo West Entry in Seattle, Washington by Weinstein A|U LLC Architects (designed using Vectorworks)

Article source: Weinstein A|U LLC

The new Woodland Park Zoo West Entrance replaces the old north and west entrances providing amenities and services in an arrangement that allows large numbers of guests to enter the zoo quickly, while maintaining a scale intimate enough to be enjoyed by small groups or individuals.  The zoo entrance is meant to be experienced as a node along a larger path around Woodland Park. With a variety of opportunities for seating or gathering, the plaza is a civic space enjoyed by zoo patrons and the public at large.

Bamboo Forest House in Ilan, Taiwan by Roewu Architecture

Thursday, October 27th, 2011

Article source: Roewu Architecture

ROEWUarchitecture have recently completed a vacation home for an extended family in eastern Taiwan. Located in a dense urban area and confined on two sides by blank party-walls the house must gain all its light and air from the street while maintaining privacy within. It was also essential to maintain security while windows are left open for natural ventilation. The narrow and elongated plot was addressed by placing a series of solid volumes along the length of the site, allowing void spaces in between to create continuity for light and air. A bamboo screen wraps around the house creating a buffer between the street and private life within.

Villa at Amundön in Brottkärr, Gothenburg by Wingårdh Arkitektkontor (designed using AutoCAD)

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

Article source: Wingårdh Arkitektkontor

In spite of its location by the sea Gothenburg has very few residences with sites by the water. This unique site therefore called for special care and treatment, and for various reasons Wingårdh has designed buildings on it on three different occasions and for three different clients. The house that has now been built is for a family consisting of two adults, two teenage daughters and a small son.
