Hole 19 – Golfclub St. Oswald in St. Oswald, Upper Austria by X Architekten

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

Article source: X Architekten

Corporate Golf Space

The golf course as an integrated design landscape and topography nestles up to the soft downs of the Mühlviertel. The club house merges with the landscape and integrates consistently into the natural surroundings, almost being completely absorbed by it. Its outer and inner rooms are designed as a seamless transition into the golf course and become one with the surrounding sports grounds. The inner court offers possibilities for multi-functional activities in a sheltered atmosphere – as a garden for visitors as well as a location for events and award ceremonies. Towards the south west the court opens up into a covered terrace as far as the driving range. On the northern side, it serves as a reception area for players returning from the 18th Hole. The inner court presents itself as the “19th Hole” and the club house as the “19th Green” of the golf course and they resemble the Start as well as the Finish in the movement of club members and visitors.

A greenhouse for the 21st century stands in the American Philosophical Society’s (APS) garden. An outgrowth of the Museum’s current exhibition, it was conceived by artist and architectural designer Jenny Sabin. Her ecologically savvy structure re-envisions greenhouse architecture using digital design tools. It is also a striking work of art.

Species Deposit in Legazpi, Madrid by Langarita-Navarro Arquitectos (designed using AutoCAD, Rhino, and Grasshopper)

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

Article source: María Langarita and Víctor Navarro

Matadero Madrid’s elevated water tower  is a singular work: a concrete structure standing 25 meters high and 14 in diameter, located on the southern edge of the new contemporary creation space. The tower, which originally was surrounded by small garden pavilions for workers at the complex, now rests on a lot that has functioned in recent years as a makeshift parking zone and a space for stock and support of artistic activities.  This earth-covered area, in which some of the plant species that inhabited the gardens still survive, will, in the near future, cover an underground transport hub and be transformed into a paved plaza providing access to the cultural facility.

The Support Services Center is an extreme renovation to a 170,000 s.f. structure which, over the life of the building, resulted in eight (8) separate additions with seven (7) varying floor heights throughout the facility.

Sarreguemines Nursery in France by Paul Le Quernec & Michel Grasso Architect

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

Article source: Paul Le Quernec & Michel Grasso Architect

The project is designed as a body cell, placing the nursery at the center of the layout as the nucleus, surrounding gardens as the cytoplasm, and a circumscribing enclosing wall as the membrane.
A large outdoor playground is generated through a continuous curvilinear wall that shapes out the boundaries of the facility. The “vaginal” entrance is characterized by a concrete vault which is a continuation of the peripheral wall. Floating within its membrane, the nursery welcomes visitors into a round space at the center of the building, enlightened by a covered patio.

Parcel D in San Juan, Puerto Rico by Oppenheim Architecture + Design LLP

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

Article source: Oppenheim Architecture + Design LLP

The project challenges the common residential typology, aiming for a hybrid between a single family home and an urban residence.  To this end our approach responds not only to the specific zoning and programmatic criteria, but also takes as a point of departure the natural landscapes of the island, in particular El Yunque Rainforest (Forest in the Clouds). It also glances across notions of aerial gardens particularly those mythologized in the sketches of [KM] ancient Babylon.

Villa Wilderness in South Africa by Van Ringen Architecten

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

Article source: Van Ringen Architecten

The northern facade facing the street is one storey high with three storeys on the southern facade running down to the beach. The northern trajectory of the Sun and the casting of shadows to the south is the primary reason that the terraces facing the beach have been projected southward – thereby increasing external exposure to sunlight whilst at the same time increasing interior shade within the villa. The southern facade has been made mostly transparent to enable views of the Indian Ocean from every room. Floor to ceiling windows (up to 4,5 meter) offer panoramic views over the ocean.
