Housing Razgledi Perovo in Kamnik, Slovenia by Dekleva Gregoric Arhitekti (designed using AutoCAD)

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

Article source: Dekleva Gregoric Arhitekti

The houses on Perovo stand on an exposed location with an exceptional view of the Kamniško-Savinjske Alps in the background. However the view is not the only characteristic of this location, as the houses represent a dominant feature of the valley when viewed from below. Thus the architectural task at hand brings at least two important challenges. First, it is necessary to design and create a quality living environment for the future residents, and second, the project provides an opportunity to redefine the look of the settlement on Perovo which has a rather heterogeneous and inharmonious layout with its scattered individual houses.

Drevviken House in Farsta, Sweden by Claesson Koivisto Rune Arkitektkontor (designed using ArchiCAD)

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

Article source: Claesson Koivisto Rune Arkitektkontor AB

Only ten minutes from Stockholm centre lies this piece of surprisingly un-touched natural landscape hidden. The lot is directly on the Drevviken lake with its own little cove. The crescent of the cove follows the slightly bowl-shaped land that also gave the shape of the house. The house is itself a kind of up-turned crescent with foundation and roof lines in parallel curves. With three different floor levels inside, the land could be left un-touched for the building. So the sculptural quality of the house follows the nature of the site rather than being a gesture.

Netscape: SCI-Arc Graduation Pavilion 2011 in Los Angeles, California by Oyler Wu Collaborative

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

Article source: Oyler Wu Collaborative

Every year in early September, as graduate students at the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) in Los Angeles put the finishing touches on their thesis projects, a Sci-Arc faculty member and students prepare a temporary pavilion for the annual graduation ceremony.  This year, faculty members Dwayne Oyler and Jenny Wu of Oyler Wu Collaborative, along with their students, designed a pavilion entitled Netscape for the event that stretches across the northern end of the SCI-Arc parking lot, providing seating for 900.  Consisting of 45,000 linear feet of knitted rope, 6000 linear feet of tube steel, and 3000 square feet of fabric shade louvers, the pavilion creates a sail-like canopy of rope and fabric that floats above the audience.  With its fabric louvers tilted toward the western sky, the canopy is designed to provide shade for the specific date and time.

Mini Mall in Rotterdam, Holland by PEÑA architecture & AFARAI

Mini Mall: A shopping mall with a compact, contemporary programme in a monumental building.

The Mini Mall consists of 2500 sq. m. of retail and catering space for entrepreneurs, artists, designers and other creative minds, who will breathe new life into this unique area as from spring 2011. The development of the Hofplein Station into a compact shopping mall comes in response to a lack of affordable locations in Rotterdam where fresh new initiatives can see the light of day, but also with the aim to give the neighborhood quality boost.

House in Leiria, Portugal by ARX (designed using AutoCAD)

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

Article source: ARX

The house is located in a “typical” peripheric urbanization of Pousos, a parish of the municipality of Leiria. Situated east of the city and at high ground, it works as a sort of panoramic belvedere over Leiria.  So as to assure for more space and complete access to the faraway view, the owners bought the three lots ahead, over the “cliff”.
