London Aquatic Centre in London, UK by Zaha Hadid Architects

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

More projects by Zaha Hadid

The architectural concept of the London Aquatic Centre is inspired by the fluid geometry of water in motion, creating spaces and a surrounding environment in sympathy with the river landscape of the Olympic Park.  An undulating roof sweeps up from the ground as a wave – enclosing the pools of the Centre with its unifying gesture of fluidity, whilst also describing the volume of the swimming and diving pools.

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

The research project its own identity through the creation of simple volumes and divided between them. The contrast between the large windows and dark surfaces of the ground floor, lava stone, and the white walls of the first floor makes the construction to be suspended and light. At the ground floor windows open onto the garden are opposed to the first floor cantilevered walls consist of sliding panels in vertical profiles of aluminum, which act as a sunscreen, and at the same time clearly characterize the villa. You arrive at the villa by a path paved with lava through the front garden, a steel roof with a dramatic change in the pathway and protects at the same time introduces an element which projects outside the main facade of the building.

Villa Dolni Dobrouc in Dolni Dobrouc, Czech Republic by Alexandr Skalicky Architect designed with ArchiCAD

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

The basic idea of the design of the Villa is based on the layout of its internal rooms and on the work with the interior as a kind of “residential countryside”. The internal rooms and the immediate surroundings of the Villa form a “spatial zone” which runs through the Villa and its surroundings as a continuous line. The Villa is partly sung in the slope of a hill to form a large and flat entrance area in front of the house.  This area is the first “external” room of the Villa. It is here where the visual contact with the Villa actually begins. The space that begins in this place runs, with various modifications, through the whole house. Behind the entrance area, the “zone” enters the internal space of the Villa. The zone consists of two inside floors. From the entrance hall which is on the lower level, the “interconnected space” leads to the residential floor in the upper level via an open staircase and ends before the dining and living rooms.
