CARRARA HOUSE in Pilar, Prov. de Buenos Aires by Andrés Remy Arquitectos

Friday, March 18th, 2011

Casa Carrara

Located on an irregular lot, the house sits at the back of the lot and is parallel to one of the streets to open the best orientation and capture the best views.  The idea of this journey was to discover the entrance as we follow the exterior stone wall.  The rustic and crafted stone defines and separates the entry zones from the living spaces and is inside and outside, proposing a counterpoint to the pure white that dominates the inside of the house.

New Odense University Hospital and Faculty of Health Sciences in Denmark by Henning Larsen Architects

Friday, March 18th, 2011

Designing a hospital in the size of the New Odense University Hospital (New OUH) extends far beyond land register, building structure, politics and law. Thus, the day-to-day experiences that patients, employees, relations or students take with them are of crucial importance. This is what the New OUH as an organisation and building should uphold.

’Villas in the Sky’ in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia by Henning Larsen Architects

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

Article source: Henning Larsen Architects
More projects by Henning Larsen Architects

’Villas in the Sky’ is a mixed-use 34-storey tower placed at a unique location in the King Abdullah Financial District in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Situated as one of the last buildings in the green thoroughfare, the Wadi, and in a transition zone between the public square and the Wadi, the tower will become a strong local landmark. The form imitates the structural ideal of a high-rise building. It is a polygon with four equal sides allowing for very flexible spaces. The shifted upper plates create a jagged facade that visually differentiates the various programmes in the mixed-use building.

“Room for London” by Julian King Architect

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

Perched amid the rooftops of London, between the Thames River and the sky above, a sphere of clear polycarbonate, 7 m in diameter, encases a room of 42 s.m. The shell is joined along aluminum rings that divide the world into its four meridians. Guests ascend a gentle ramp to the raised floor. Inside, a central sky-lit shower is encircled by a 180° riverside seat. To the south, a queen size bed looks onto a roof garden. The unique envelope is coated with photo-voltaics, solidified drops of silicone on transparent film, in the shape of the continents of the Earth; providing all the energy the small room requires. LEDs on the interior surface give the room an ethereal glow at night.

From a distance, the global room appears to be a moon, or the Earth itself-and for a moment we see our own planet for the finite, singularly miraculous home that it is.

Saffire Resort in Coles Bay, Australia by Circa Architecture

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

Design Statement

From its inception, Saffire was imagined as an iconic project to redefine tourism in Tasmania.

The location, when we inherited it, was scarred from its previous use as a disused caravan park so the project became as much about repairing the site and interpreting its unique qualities as it was about creating a space from which it could be experienced. With this in mind, we shaped the main building as the end point in a journey, in which views of the Hazards are shielded and revealed and finally presented as a destination which is a panoramic overview of Great Oyster Bay.
