Rozemaai-housing in Antwerp, Belgium by Atelier Kempe Thill

Saturday, September 3rd, 2011

Article source: Atelier Kempe Thill



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, designed by Atelier H-2-A (Dipl.-Ing. Mona Bayr MSc.), combines a historic interior with a water escape.

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.

Eight Thousand Two Hundred Fifteen in Miami, Florida by Studio BONNER & Stayner Architects

Friday, September 2nd, 2011

Article source: Studio BONNER & Stayner Architects

Eight Thousand Two Hundred Fifteen
is a proposal for an entrance plaza and children’s play area for Zoo Miami and Miami-Dade Art in Public Places. Emerging from the uncontrollability of hydrology and urbanism, the 80,000 ft2 paving system is comprised of thousands of pre-cast and cast-in-place concrete surfaces that mutate from horizontal to vertical at key points, both adaptive and constantly changing. Approximately two hundred of these pavers delaminate and peel off the ground.

Youth- and neighbourhood centre “De hood” in Amsterdam-Osdorp, 2011

In the garden city

Osdorp grew during the extension of the city of Amsterdam after the Second World War on the basis of the urban plan of De Stijl – architect Cornelis van Eesteren. Since the nineties, a large urban renewal project is in progress in which the poorly maintained buildings are subsequently demolished and are replaced by new ones.  An attempt is made to eliminate the urban problems of the CIAM planning while nevertheless maintaining its qualities. One of these qualities is the green, lush areas between the building blocks.
