980 5th Avenue in New York by Hollwich Kushner

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

Article source: Hollwich Kushner

This gut-renovated apartment is meant to function as an escape from the clents’ ordinary life that is filled with collections and objects.  They are an empty-nest couple, with a big home in the suburbs and a self-declared ‘tchatchki‘ addiction.  A renovation of the existing 2,500sf apartment clears out the center space to visually link the dining room and living room together.  The palette of the apartment is kept simple with white walls and dark floors in order to retain a purity of space.

Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2008 in London, United Kingdom by Gehry Partners, LLP

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

Article source: Gehry Partners, LLP

This temporary pavilion, the 2008 contribution to the Serpentine Gallery’s Pavilion series, is situated beside the museum on the grounds of Kensington Gardens in London.  The 418 square meter pavilion is designed as a wooden timber structure which acts as an urban street connecting the park with the permanent gallery building. Inside the pavilion, glass canopies are hung from the wooden and steel structure to protect the interior space from inclement weather and provide shade on sunny days. The pavilion is much like an amphitheater, designed to serve as a place for live performances of music and art, as well as a setting for visitors to gather and relax.

Tartu Rebase Street in Estonia by Atelier Thomas Pucher in collaboration with Bramberger Architects

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

Article source: Atelier Thomas Pucher in collaboration with Bramberger architects

The original concept of the building was to combine the advantages of single residential homes with the economical aspects of `apartment living´. Over the last centuries the concept of single residential family houses changed enormously.  Different approaches and reinterpretations changed not only the way that people live but also the way they use their own spaces. Our proposal was to combine the advantages of privacy, outdoor gardens and the boundless views that a single residential home offers with the low economic and maintenance costs of an apartment.

Calmly perched 60 feet in the air like a floating cloud. Alchemist is a floating glass box inserted into the fifth floor of a parking structure designed by Herzog and de Meuron and Open to the Miami Beach sky. Inside, its reflective materials capture the colors and energy of the surrounding environment and make the space radiate in such a way that it is visible from many vantage points throughout Miami Beach.

Souffle in Montpellier, France by HOLDUP

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

Article source: HOLDUP


After a fortuitous sky fall, SOUFFLE landed within Trésoriers de France’s courtyard. The impact between that alien object and the “exhibition space” broke the local stability and equilibrium.

Any person suited to tame the installation will be granted a privileged access to a refuge within, half way between a confessional booth and a teleportation box.

Casa em Sintra in Sintra, Portugal by Regino Cruz Arquitectos

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

Article source: Regino Cruz Arquitectos

We saw this piece of land, with almost one acre, where we conceived our villa, as a spiritual retreat where the secular cork trees were abundant. Any construction can be built in one or two years, but the privilege of contemplating cork trees like those is the product of at least five generations, more than 150 years in time. So, it’s fair to say that in this case, architecture occupied the remaining space.
