Reflection of Mineral in Tokyo, Japan by Atelier Tekuto

Saturday, September 10th, 2011

Article source: Atelier Tekuto

The site is located near the center of Tokyo. It is a small 44m2 corner plot bounded by two streets. Conforming to legal conditions and in response to the client’s wish for a ‘roofed garage’ the volume was trimmed from various directions. Using the words ‘Mineral’ and ‘reflection’ as guiding concepts, Atelier Tekuto proceeded to use subtraction as a positive tool for design.

Crab Creek House in Annapolis, Maryland by Robert Gurney Architect designed using AutoCAD

Saturday, September 10th, 2011

Article source: Robert Gurney

This house, located in Annapolis, Maryland is built on the foundation of a 1960s post and beam modern house. The foundation was kept in an effort to retain it’s proximity to Crab Creek, an estuary that feeds the Chesapeake Bay.  Strict environmental regulations prohibited enlarging the pre-existing footprint or adding significant square footage to the house.  The house is organized around a linear bar, clad in white stucco.

Article source: Atelier Kempe Tthill

The project is under construction at the edge of Bijlmerpark in the central area of Amsterdam-Zuidoost and is used as a housing complex for drug-addicted. As a typology it is very similar to a classical hotel. Small individual units of a size between 15-25m2 are surrounding a very generous lobby used as the central activity space for a group of up to 50 inhabitants. This “collective living room” has a beautiful rooflight and enjoys nice views on the park. On the top of this space is a little courtyard placed, offering the inhabitant’s an intimate outside space covered by the Amsterdam sky.

Double Sports Hall in Bielefeld-Ubbedissen by Architekten Wannenmacher + Möller GmbH designed using ArchiCAD and 3DSMax

Saturday, September 10th, 2011

Article source: Architekten Wannenmacher + Möller GmbH

A new sports hall was to be constructed at the primary school in the district of Ubbedissen in Bielefeld because the old hall had not been consistent with modern requirements for a long time and also displayed great investment deficit. Besides the school the new hall was also intended for use by sports clubs so that it would enjoy better utilization. The new sports hall was to be built on fallow land near to the school that borders directly onto the existing sports fields.

Godoy House in Jalisco, Mexico by Hernandez Silva Arquitectos designed using Autocad, Sketchup and V-Ray

Saturday, September 10th, 2011

Article source: Hernandez Silva Arquitectos

The house is located in a private neighborhood outside the city, the land is flat and located in a corner, with neighbors to the south and east side, the west contains a large line of trees that separates  the house from the street and takes a turn into the north where both entrances lie: one pedestrian and another one for cars, there are two bodies floating, the one on the left is a large box covered in gray stone that levitates over  the street opening a gap where the cars are stored, the second body  is transparent and light, larger and higher, which shows the pedestrian entrance, it is a volume of windows to the north and west  sheltered by a white steel lattice, obeying the relationship with the sun, as this orientation is extremely hard in the city.

Temple Sinai in Oakland, California by Mark Horton / Architecture with Michael Harris Architecture

Friday, September 9th, 2011

Article source: Mark Horton / Architecture with Michael Harris Architecture

Temple Sinai, the oldest and largest East Bay Jewish synagogue, has grown around their 1918 landmarked sanctuary with new buildings in a way that has disassociated all of their different activities. The Temple’s new building program included a new chapel, classrooms, a preschool, administrative offices, and a library, but most importantly the temple wanted a new design to organize these disparate elements into a place where their congregants could feel a greater sense of community where people could meet each other in casual spaces for spontaneous conversation.
