Half-semi-detached house in Poznań, Poland by KILKORO architekci (designed using Archicad and SketchUp)

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

Article source: KILKORO architekci

The brief was to simply refurbish and recondition an existing house to reach contemporary living standards and a modern appearance. The owners have a small business of their own which requires an office with a separate entrance for future clients. The house is a typical 1970′ polish neighborhood semi-detached house. The only difference was that the other part of the house was never built.

Moire Moire Moire : : 3 mews Houses in Dublin, Ireland by ODOS architects

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

Article source: ODOS architects

The site for these three mews dwellings is located on an industrial lane way in Dublin 8, previously devoid of domestic life. This industrial setting was instrumental in informing the architectural language of these dwellings. From the outside, the three dwellings appear as a mysterious, robust and impenetrable mass. The cantilevered upper section is a composition of powder coated metal industrial flooring planks arranged in a structural steel frame. These voile like planks have been laid out in varying widths to create a rhythm to the street elevation and have been periodically doubled in depth creating a moiré or interference pattern.

The Wilderness in Suffolk, England by Paul+O Architects

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

Article source: Paul+O Architects

The Wilderness is a 750 sq m new-build country house in the Suffolk countryside designed by London-based Paul+O Architects.

The design draws on a European architectural language and is one of the few built examples of houses granted planning permission under PPG7 clause 3.21, a planning policy guidance note passed by MP John Gummer in 1997 in the UK to permit planning consent for isolated new houses in the countryside if they “are truly outstanding in terms of Architecture and landscape design and would significantly enhance its immediate setting and wider surroundings”.

Tile and Concrete in Parma, Italy by Francesco Di Gregorio & Karin Matz

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

Article source: Francesco Di Gregorio & Karin Matz

Located in Lasagnana, on a tiny street in the middle of Val Parma, the ground level of a former stable has been converted into an apartment / studio for an young couple . Dimensions and shapes come from the position of existing elements: windows, walls and columns. The strongest element of the stable was for us the “whole space”. A bathroom is the only volume added, completely covered in white 10×10 cm tiles that bring light and uniformity. It is a freestanding structure where space has been turned inside out. Inside the functions needed, outside the circulation.

Berkeley Live/Work Residence in Toronto, Canada by PLANT Architect Inc.

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

Article source: PLANT Architect Inc.

PLANT’s work on this existing live/work structure in downtown Toronto involved a 2,000 square-foot interior renovation and a new cladding concept for the exterior facades. This concept creates a more inviting entrance that serves to distinguish the office entrance from the residential entrance. Using a new palette of materials, the light-coloured building skin, metal window accents, and cedar cladding lighten the overall massing of the building’s upper portion. In contrast, warmer, tactile materials were used at the entry points off the street.

The Yardmaster’s Building in Melbourne, Australia by McBride Charles Ryan architecture+interior design

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

Article source: McBride Charles Ryan architecture+interior design

Cross Rail Yard. Typically, a service building inaccessible to the public like this would be treated in a pragmatic and unremarkable way. In contrast, the Yardmasters Building confidently presents itself as a ‘public’ entity. Viewed in the round, it offers itself back to the city as an exquisite, mysterious box: a jewel in the junkheap. The project involved extensive consultation with representatives of the diverse users, their respective union representatives, and management and associated authorities.

Given the fact that the client was a newly arrived surgeon in Thessaloniki (Greece), we were handed the task of creating a memorable office space, providing an experience as distant as possible from the usual image one associates with a visit to a doctor’s studio.
