Vestfold Crematorium in Sandefjord, Norway by PUSHAK

Saturday, April 30th, 2011

The architecture of this new crematorium seeks to meet both the functional and emotional needs of cremations. This involves creating spaces with dignity for relatives who choose to follow the deceased until the cremation. It also means creating spaces of dignity for the staff that confirms the importance of their work. The crematorium has a relatively high degree of transparency and visibility, to create a good workspace and to make the crematorium a reference for the people in the region.

De Nieuwe Liefde in Amsterdam, the Netherlands by Wiel Arets Architects

Saturday, April 30th, 2011

The monumental white building on Amsterdam’s Da Costakade was originally constructed in 1901 as a storage space for a wine company, before being converted into a parish in 1932 named De Liefde (‘The Love’). After falling into disrepair after many renovations, and with the last tenants leaving the property in 2007, the complex was completely rebuilt by Wiel Arets Architects and renames ‘De Nieuwe Liefde (‘The New Love’). The reconstruction included transforming the existing complex of buildings into a theatre and community centre composed of a main hall with seating for 230, a conference room with space for 60, a choir space for 50, a library, a grand foyer and a restaurant-café.

Multifunctional School Building Tesselseveld in The Hague, The Netherlands by HVE Architecten

Saturday, April 30th, 2011

We feel that a school should be like a small town, with streets, squares and houses. A town where one meets, learns, plays and discovers. A school as a town where children learn to peacefully coexist and grow.

Primorskiy’s new Zoological Park in Saint-Petersburg , Russia by Beckmann N’Thépé

Saturday, April 30th, 2011

Founded in 1865 Saint-Petersburg zoo is the oldest zoological park of Russia. As most of other parks across Russia, it suffers today from a cruel lack of space, being located in the heart of the historical town center. The city has hence decided to create a new zoo, which will range over 300 hectares, on the town’s outskirts, escaping this way the high population density of the urban area. The project preserves a large strech of land, and implements an environmentally beneficial approach.

Alvarado House in San Francisco, California by Terry & Terry Architecture designed using ArchiCAD

Saturday, April 30th, 2011

The original Alvarado home was a small Victorian, built in the late 19th century.  It presented limitations typical of the homes of the era:  a very compartmentalized floor plan; dark internal rooms; a small, utilitarian kitchen; and little connection to the outdoors.  Our concept was to transform the existing Victorian house to better suit the needs of a modern family, with particular emphasis on changing the rear of the house.  One of the challenges was to optimize light, while preserving privacy in a dense urban setting.
