Kindergarten Ajda 2 in Ravne Na Koroškem, Slovenia by Arhitektura Jure Kotnik

Kindergarten Ajda is the extension a kindergarten in Ravne na Koroškem, a Slovene town well known for its long tradition of manufacturing steel. Ajda is located in a housing neighborhood built in the 1980s. It has replaced a former temporary kindergarten extension, which was set up from three containers and had one playroom, offering at the time immediate relief for lack of kindergarten space. Since containers proved a good solution, the local authorities commissioned the new, permanent kindergarten extension to be built out of containers as well13 containers ISO 20’ were therefore added to the three existing ones and all of them carefully incorporated into a unique whole, once again showing the ease with which containers help efficiently and quickly manage building size: as they are added or removed, container buildings can grow larger or smaller. Ajda’s containers are arranged into clusters and joined by a single roof, with spaces in between used for various purposes, such as dressing room, covered terraces and multi-purpose entrance. Since the frame structure of the kindergarten is from containers, the result is a spacious kindergarten constructed within a budget lower than that of an average Slovene kindergarten.

Y House in Kfar Hess, Israel by Sharon Neuman Architects

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

House Y was planned for a family with 3 adolescent children, and privacy aspects played an important role in the design.

The lot is large, sloped, and has attractive open views. We placed the house in the middle of a huge garden, lower than the street level so it is almost hidden from it, in accordance with the client wish.

Accra Twin Towers in Ghana by Frederico Valsassina Arquitectos

Article source: Frederico Valsassina Arquitectos

The present proposal occupies a central position in relation to urban design of the city of Accra. It has place in a regular small sized plot, located on Liberia Road, near to the British Council.

The scale of the urban mesh on which it is inserted, stands from the density of the suburban construction that surrounds this central area of the city, underlining a privileged treatment of the spaces. In this sense, as a major action, with an ambitious program, it was understood that the planned object should take advantage of all these constraints in order to be able to assume an emblematic role in the urban and architectonic context of the city.
