Wurth House in Wormeldange in Luxembourg by Hermann & Valentiny and Partners

Tuesday, September 27th, 2011

Article source: Hermann & Valentiny and Partners

The home in his native country of a Luxembourg diplomat who is a great lover of painting. The house lies directly on the left bank of the Moselle, at the entrance to a wine-growing town, and is built directly into the vineyards. It consists of three levels and a converted attic. But one recognises this fact only from the Moselle as, due to the slope, part of the building is embedded in the earth.

Hockessin Public Library in New Castle, Delaware by ikon.5 Architects Designed using AutoCAD

Tuesday, September 27th, 2011

Article source: ikon.5 Architects

The expansion of the Hockessin Public Library is a floating glass pavilion in a park. The existing library site is bounded by a major road to the north, parking to the west and wetland to the east, leaving only the possibility for expansion to the south. The south side of the site overlooks a densely vegetated county park, but is restricted by a 100 year flood plain within close proximity to the existing library. To avoid this barrier, the expansion cantilevers over the floodplain and projects into the landscaped park.

Isernia Golf Club in Italy by Medir architects designed using Autocad LT and SketchUp

Sunday, September 25th, 2011

Article source: Medir architects

The design concept of the Isernia Golf Club building started with the idea of converting an existing wooden structure, built to cover the golf shooting stations, into a Clubhouse pavilion. The original structure of that shelter was static and got lost with generous size of the golf course and the beautiful open-ended views facing the surrounding valleys. Therefore, the intention was to enhance the presence of the building by adding iconic value to the imperfections of its shaped geometry. Looking like an open-air theater and declaring its artificiality to the natural environment, the building aims to have an ephemeral aspect, as a ‘compensation’ of its own presence in a uncontaminated site. The building is composed of a wooden screen enveloping the existing structure along the perimeter, fragmenting natural light, and peeling off on the back side to form the main entrance. The access to the golf course is marked by a ‘fragment of construction’, a stone wall along which a heavy steel plate slides across big metal gears.

2011 Taipei Museum Competition in Taiwan by Marcy Wong Donn Logan Architects

Sunday, September 25th, 2011

Article source: Marcy Wong Donn Logan Architects


To achieve the objectives of an architecturally iconic museum of art with versatile art exhibition spaces in a highly sustainable project this proposal defines the concept of art exhibition beyond the conventional “stuffy” notions of uniformly rectangular, windowless interior galleries. Instead, the project provides both interior and exterior venues for a variety of public experiences, and creates the opportunity for day-lighting and sustainability in ways that are unprecedented for art museums.

Daylight House in Kanagawa, Japan by Takeshi Hosaka Architects

Sunday, September 25th, 2011

Article source: Takeshi Hosaka Architects

This is a house in which residents live under natural lighting from the sky. The site is five minutes walk from the railway station, and it is surrounded by a mixture of detached dwellings and 10-floor condominiums and office buildings. In this location nested in a valley between buildings, the light streaming down from the sky above felt precious. A couple with two children planned to build their home in this spot.
