Article source: OKRA, Maxwan A+U, and Basler&Hofmann

Dutch success in Basel

The team of OKRA, Maxwan A+U, and Basler&Hofmann has won the competition for the concept design for the Basel city center. The proposal provides an overall view on quality of public realm in the city centre for the next decades, and focuses on creating a green and vibrant landscape city, providing spaces that create a ‘shared space 2.0’. The plan provides tools for transformation of a large area in the city centre, expanding from the train station SBB and the railway station Badischer Bahnhof on the other side of the river Rhine. Even more than today, the Basel city centre will be a focal point for the entire tri-national, expanding over the German and French borders.

Foam, Cultural Centre in Girona, Spain by Carles Sala and Relja Ferusic, from SALA FERUSIC Architects, Barcelona

Thursday, September 1st, 2011

Article source: Carles Sala and Relja Ferusic, from SALA FERUSIC Architects, Barcelona

The Cultural Centre of ‘Roses’ is based on the design of mechanisms to conduct and qualify the natural lighting, so as to adapt it to the requirements of the centre. Therefore, the building has been considered from the idea of the sea foam, as the volume has been fluffed through  a patio that spreads the natural light into the building, while a white perforated skin tones the light down and guarantees the energy efficiency of the building.

Peterson Residence in Chevy Chase, Maryland by Robert M. Gurney

Thursday, September 1st, 2011

Article source: Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

Located in Chevy Chase, Maryland, this project involves a complete renovation and substantial addition to a familiar, simply massed brick “colonial”.   The original, gable shaped volume fronting the street is minimally altered in an effort to retain the scale and massing of neighboring houses.  Tall windows are incorporated into the existing façade.  A copper clad, vaulted volume is integrated into the composition with a new front porch and wide stairs, invoking the nostalgic porches found throughout the neighborhood.

Joan Puigbert Primary School in Girona, Spain by Mias Arquitectes

Thursday, September 1st, 2011

Article source: Mias Arquitectes

Annexa-Joan Puigbert is the name of the school that occupies a T-shaped building from the 50s of the 20th century. Its main building lies along the main street, and in the middle point there is another building which is perpendicular. The building’s topographical position is strange, due to the steep hill where the school was built.

Doe Bay Cabin in Orcas Island, Washington by Heliotrope Architects

Our clients for this project have been traveling regularly to Doe Bay Resort on Orcas Island for two decades.  Now with two young children they have formalized their affection for the place by purchasing property located a short walk from the resort.   We were challenged to design a modest cabin in size and cost (but not in character) that captures the spirit of this place while reflecting the Japanese and Chinese heritage of the owners.

This is a mass-produced type ready-built house often developed on a large scale, and as such, has the advantage of producing entire housing of rows. In many cases, as the appearance is coordinated at the designation of the owner, rows of houses that do not necessity match esthetically are created.
