Sunday, December 11th, 2011

Article source: ANTONINI-DARMON Architects

The buildings of the cultural and community premises of Paris Diderot University fit into the undeveloped, southwest area of the Flour Market which was recently converted by Nicolas Michelin and Associates Agency. A break between the Flour Market and the new building is preserved. It respects the existing building and accentuates the slenderness of the tower.

Dee and Charles Wyly Theater in Dallas, Texas by REX/OMA

Sunday, December 11th, 2011

Article source: REX/OMA

The Dallas Theater Center (DTC) is known for its innovative work, the result of its leadership’s constant experimentation and the provisional nature of its long-time home. DTC was housed in the Arts District Theater, a dilapidated metal shed that freed its resident companies from the limitations imposed by a fixed-stage configuration and the need to avoid harming expensive interior finishes. The directors who worked there constantly challenged the traditional conventions of theater and often reconfigured the form of the stage to fit their artistic visions. As a result, the Arts District Theater was renowned as the most flexible theater in America. The costs of constantly reconfiguring its stage, however, became a financial burden and eventually DTC permanently fixed its stage into a “thrust-cenium.”

Villa Veth in Hattem, The Netherlands by 123DV (designed using AutoCAD and Cinema 4D)

Sunday, December 11th, 2011

Article source: 123DV

Floating from time to time

Villa Veth is a modern, customized villa, a private residence for a family of four. It is situated on a large parcel of land by a forest near the idyllic town of Hattem in the eastern part of the Netherlands.

The driveway on the entrance side leads to a carport situated below the house. This places the cars out of sight and gives the impression of the house partially hovering. It is a simple architectural approach with a great visual effect. The house looks sleek and abstract on the outside, but has a warm and cozy interior.

Sonnenhof in Jena, Germany by J. MAYER H. Architects

Sunday, December 11th, 2011

Article source: J. MAYER H. Architects

Sonnenhof consists of four new buildings with office and residential spaces. Located on a consolidated number of smaller lots in the historical center of Jena, Germany, the separate structures allow for free access through the grounds. Their placement on the outer edges of the plot defines a small-scale outdoor space congruent with the medieval city structure. Its outdoor facilities continue the building’s overall design concept past the edges of the lot. The planned incorporation of commerce, residence and office enables a small-sectioned and flexible pattern of use that also integrates itself conceptually into the surroundings.

Injidup Residence in South West, Australia by Wright Feldhusen Architects

Friday, December 9th, 2011

Article source: Wright Feldhusen Architects

The exposed spectacular site has vast views of Injidup Beach. The Busselton council imposed stringent building bulk and height guidelines; no portion of the building was to be higher then 4 metres above natural ground level. This therefore resulted in a low laconic single level residence. The client required holiday accommodation for their extended family and as such the sleeping requirements necessitated several bedrooms in separate zones to isolate young children from noisier areas. The site is extremely exposed with the prevailing South Westerly breeze and hot afternoon sun setting into the main view.
