Baufeld 10 in HafenCity, Germany by Love Architecture

Friday, April 8th, 2011

With the HafenCity Hamburg, a new district covering 157 hectares is being developed directly at the port. In addition to the mixed utilization, the relevant urban development concept calls for high-quality architecture. For this reason, there was a separate tendering process for each individual building site.

Reet Barn in Alkmaar, The Netherlands by 24H-Architecture

Friday, April 8th, 2011

Recently 24H-architecture designed a new ‘farmhouse-like structure’ in the northern part of the Netherlands. At the square base of the building, a wooden roof was build that is tilled towards the prevailing south-western wind blowing over the open polders. With big overhangs the roof protects the structure from wind and rain as well as creates covered areas. The covering of the roof is being constructed of locally won reet. Its waiving pattern reflects the wind, like it makes waves in the water.

Extension Terminal 2, Riga Airport, Latvia

Thursday, April 7th, 2011

The project’s architectural effects are based on three distinct surface qualities (clad solids, screened semi solids, and exposed trusses) which are composed over a geometric system with a strong tectonic expression. The consequence is a tension of simultaneous perception of surface figures juxtaposed with geometric volumes. The architecture becomes an esthetical experience of oscillating volumetric readings throughout the spaces of the building.

Palmwood House is a prototype building for problematic urban sites; a small, triangular infill lot severely constrained by height restrictions, acute boundaries, failed development plans and conservation controls.
