Brandon Fire Hall No.1 in Brandon, Canada by Cibinel Architects

Saturday, April 16th, 2011

The dynamic new 30,000 sq ft Brandon Fire and Emergency Services Building validates the idea that a primarily utilitarian program, which often times results in a prefabricated solution, can become a sophisticated architectural project that contributes to its surrounding community and landscape while still fulfilling its demanding functional requirements and modest budget.

SEBRAE NATIONAL HEADQUARTERS in Brasilia, Brazil by Gruposp

Saturday, April 16th, 2011

SEBRAE HEADQUARTERS, BRASÍLIA-DF

Our approach to the design responds simultaneously to the urbanistic constrictions in Brasilia – including the topographic characteristics of the terrain – and the character of the architecture desired for the new national SEBRAE headquarters. What we propose is not a building but an architectural complex with: 1) emphasis on interior spatiality, aimed at integration of both the user and the built and natural landscape; 2) maximum flexibility for organization of offices, and 3) concern with optimal environmental and economic performance.

Dune House by Gianluca Santosuosso

Friday, April 15th, 2011

The concept behind the DUNE House project is to create a flexible tool* more than a design where the client has the possibility to define his own house. Mainly, the idea is based on a system composed by different volumes where each of them represents a program or a cluster of it (bedroom and bathroom, kitchen, swimming poll, etc.) and the client is able to distribute them on the plot and creating every kind of space and connection that he prefers.

Dune House

  • Designer: Gianluca Santosuosso (engineer- architect )
  • Professor: Jordi Pagès and Ramon and Lluis Viu – IaaC tutors
  • University: Architectural engineering, Via Scrivanda 9 Cantalupa – Turin, Italy, 10060 (+39) 335 74 05 423, (+39) 0121 35 45 72

Downtown Apartment in Zagreb, Croatia by DVA Arhitekta

Friday, April 15th, 2011

Project interventions revives the flexibility of former plan solutions – three to four rooms facing the street facade. Double door set in the middle of the wall between the rooms is a key element of spatial organization of downtown housing. Once, rooms used to be salons and rooms for diverse daily activities, and today an open space plan allows a variuos number of activities to happen simultaneously. In new spatial conception, the doors remain, but not only as a memory of old times, but as a functional and partition element separating and connecting at the same time different functional zones. All other rooms are scaled to fit Zagreb Downtown home lifestyle: a lavish and representative entrance hall, very comfortable master bedroom and discreetly incorporated laundry room, dressing room and pantry.
