Single house in “El Alquián”, Almería by vora arquitectura

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

At an urban level, the building is situated on the corner of two very narrow streets, but avoids a direct relationship with them, closing the first two levels of the house around an enclosed external courtyard, which is both controlled and thermally benficial. In contrast, the top floor opens fully onto an open terrace above the street that allows distant views over the church towards the sea.

The Baljurk (Ball Gown) project by Archipelontwerpers

Monday, February 14th, 2011

The ‘Baljurk-project” (baljurk = evening-dress, ball gown) is situated in the centre of The Hague, next to the old Passage. The construction of the Passage in 1882 has transformed the urban tissue. Before this transformation there used to be a meandering transition between the two streets “Kettingstraat” and the “Achterom”, cause by the fact that the “Achterom” used to be a modest stream. This organic flow is unique in the context of The Hague’s rectangular lay-out. By consequence of the construction of the Passage this smooth transition was converted into a straight angle. The Baljurk-project is exactly placed on this corner.

V Tower in Eindhoven, Netherlands by Wiel Arets Architects

Monday, February 14th, 2011

The V Tower is part of the Flight Forum in Eindhoven, an industrial park with an urban plan by MVRDV. It is based on six clusters dropped loosely into the landscape and accessed from a looping road, a branch connection of the A2. The tower, which contains offices, is situated in ‘cluster 1’, where all buildings with office functions are concentrated. The site is cut across its full length by a parking garage whose roof creates a platform for a second urban level, which even contains a bus line. While the main entrance of the tower is related to the elevated level, delivery and parking take place at the level of the ring road.
