Haifa University Student Center in Israel by Chyutin Architects

Sunday, February 20th, 2011

Haifa University is built on the projection of a ridge of Mount Carmel that looks over the bay of this Mediterranean city. The site chosen for the Student Center building overlooks a deep valley as well as the bay and has a steep topography. Its upper part abuts the scenic road that extends through the entire campus, ending at the site. In order not to interfere with the view, the building’s roof had to be set below the level of the scenic road.

Haifa Courthouse in Israel by Chyutin Architects

Sunday, February 20th, 2011

The Urban Context: Haifa is the main northern city of Israel, situated on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea, on the slops of Mount Carmel. The building site is located at Haifa’s downtown area, between two roads that define its boundary. The lower avenue serves as a main city thoroughfare, linking the city of Haifa to the northern part of Israel. The topographical situation is unique as the topographical soaring of Mount Carmel begins at the site’s longitude parallel. As a result, the building’s positioning is “double faced,” i.e., one side facing the mountain and the other facing the sea. The structure has two public entrances. The main entrance leads from the urban square in the west directly to the upper entrance level. The secondary entrance from the urban square on the eastern side of the structure leads to the lower entrance level. The building’s entrance square from the west is a meeting point of main urban pedestrian routes.

House for Two Artists in Sonoma County, California by Marcy Wong Donn Logan Architects

Sunday, February 20th, 2011

The clients, a composer and a photographer, wanted a small house to replace a dilapidated shack on their secluded property. Due to the pace of their careers and travel schedules, they wanted the house to be a refuge that drew from and was connected to the land. The clients view of their role as custodians of this beautiful site bolstered their motivation to design and build as sustainability as possible – an objective shared by the architects as well. The surrounding vistas consist of rolling hills with dense covers of various species of native California trees. This context in concert with the owners’ and designers’ principles of environmental stewardship, were the guiding inspirations for the placement, form, and materials of the house.

Villa in Ostrava, Czech Republic by FAM Architekti

Sunday, February 20th, 2011


The villa is located on a large hill plot with outstanding views to surrounding landscape.The volume of the building is designed as single storey as the main client requirement was a barrier free space. This horizontal concept has produced an intense spatial relationship of all the interior spaces with the surrounding garden. The exterior – interior relationship is freely based on Wrightian ideas for prerie houses, which many Czech architects have adopted subsequently.
