6×11 Alpine hut in Stara fuzina, Slovenia by OFIS arhitekti

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

Article source: OFIS arhitekti

This hut is situated in a small Alpine village, part of the Triglav national park with very strict rules on construction and architectural design. The client bought the site together with an existing construction permit for a generic project. The demand of the client was not to change the construction permit but to change the elements of the house to suit his family – to position the openings toward the views and to increase its sustainability.

The farewell chapel is located in a village close to Ljubljana. The site is positioned next to an existing graveyard. The chapel cuts into the rising landscape and the building shape follows the natural contours of the land around the graveyard. The program comes together with the three embracing curved walls which divide the space. The external curve divides the chapel plateau from the surrounding hill and also reinstates the main supporting wall. Service spaces, such as storage, wardrobe,  restrooms and kitchenette are all placed along the back wall.

Taipei Performing Arts Centre in Taiwan by NL Architects

The dichotomy between high and low culture is disappearing. But can we create an environment that is inspiring for everyone? Is it possible to be elitist and populist at the same time? How can we envision a truly Public building?

  • base of the volume as public programs and offices
  • top floors as apartments

The tower strip steps up and down according to the urban height limits and form terraces-gardens. Public Base volumes are separated and create open squares – dialog of external plaza with public programs and offices. Spaces are communicative, bright, fluid, and easily accessible and offer nice views and connections with surroundings: Strenia square, Park and roads.

The B Tower in Rotterdam, The Netherlands by Wiel Arets Architects

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

Article source: Wiel Arets Architects

The B Tower is located in the centre of Rotterdam, immediately adjacent to the Bijenkorf department store designed by Marcel Breuer in the late 1950s. Because of its commercial context the site below the Bijenkorf’s roofline is to be fully occupied, while above it, just thirty per cent of the lot towards the sunken shopping mall Beurstraverse, has been released to build a high-rise tower. In order to avoid splitting the project into a basement and a tower, the design stacks three volumes of similar height. The ground-related volume contains a fashion store, The Sting, and a car park; the two upper volumes contain apartments.
