Atelier Kempe Thill has recently won the European tender for the transformation of two apartment blocks in the district Rozemaai, Antwerp. In the closed competition five teams were involved. The site, located next to the nature park “de Oude Landen”, calls for an intensification of the relationship with the environment on the one hand, on the other hand to deal with the noise from the highway and the harbour. By creating a new glazed gallery and by closing the open-air areas by using a full glass façade a noise barrier is created around the building.

The orthodontic practice of Dr.Tina Bayr and Dr. Dominik Spaeth is located in the second oldest building in Ueberlingen, in Germany, built in 1601. Atelier H-2-A faced a few design challenges during the renovation, as the exterior façade, wooden beams and interior columns were held under a preservation law.

RG House in Badajoz, Spain by Estudio Arquitectura Hago, S.L.

Saturday, September 3rd, 2011

Article source: Estudio Arquitectura Hago, S.L.

The main reason that unleashes any architectural proposal is the client. His needs and questions provide the project with some ideas that will be present in any space of the building.

RG House was built in order to solve the difficulties of a large family. Questions and needs arise from the way in which this large family should live together in yet to be defined space. The idea of a different common space (special and recognizable) as a complement of the rest of the modular units (bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen) that complete the program of the house prevails in the whole project.

House in Suita, Osaka, Japan by Naoko Horibe

Saturday, September 3rd, 2011

The house is characterized by a very wide picture-like window towards borrowed scenery of 50-year-old cherry blossom tree.  There is a street right in front of the north side of the land, and a high retaining wall of the adjacent land on the south side.  Therefore, a room on the south side first floor is unlikely to benefit from the daylight.
