Article source: Posto 9

These small vacation villas, were designed for an “anonymous” plot, along the beach of “Manta Rota” on the “Algarve” Coast. Despite belonging to different clients, the two houses were designed together, becoming a one house volume unit, consisting of two twin fractions. In each of the fractions, the ground floor is occupied by a single space, comprising lounge and kitchen areas, facing to the east and west respectively.

DESIGN CHALLENGE

Fallon Clinic is a large multi-specialty medical group practice located throughout Central Massachusetts. After designing multiple facilities for Fallon, Margulies Perruzzi Architects was tasked to design a pilot “medical home” family practice for Fallon Clinic in Leominster. The term “medical home” refers to an innovative healthcare delivery method that provides a team of healthcare professionals, rather than one doctor, who offer a wide range of services with four main functions: educate, monitor, guide and reach out. Efficiency and flexibility of both space and healthcare professionals are crucial.

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

Article source: JM Architecture

Lying on the slope of a hill, on the shores of Lake Lugano , the villa consists of two volumes organized on different levels due to the particular topography of the site.

A polygonal shaped glass pavilion with rounded edges stands above a linear underground block. The living and dining room, the kitchen and storage spaces are located in the pavilion, while bedrooms, bathrooms and garage are in the lower level. Each level relates itself with independent outdoor spaces, which are closely related with the interiors.

Liverpool in Juarez, Mexico by Hierve

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

Article source: Hierve

The project involves the refurbishment of a former office building built in 1981, to be converted into a residential building with 23 apartments. It is worth saying that this building was considerably damaged during the 1985 earthquake. The whole building leaned itself towards the street by 1.20 meters, so the building had a big structural intervention that straightened it to its former position and reinforced the foundations heavily so to never have a problem again.

  • Principal designer: Alejandro Villarreal

New Taipei City Museum of Art Competition in Taiwan, R.O.C. by Otaplus designed using 3DSMax

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

Article source: Otaplus

This building proposal challenges the traditional definition of a museum and the conventional relationship between building and site. The ground floor of the building is reduced to a nominal footprint, enclosing only enough space for basic services, structure and ticketing functions. The ground plane is primarily reserved for exterior public space, including an art park, Hall of Fame, and garden walk. The bulk of the program and building mass are split by the open ground floor. Half of the building is coupled with the earth while the other half hovers in the air. The purpose is twofold; to minimize the damaging effects of extreme local weather by harnessing environmental flows toward productive outcomes and to re-conceptualize the identity of a modern art museum. The manicured roof plane of the below ground program is pocketed with water absorbing vegetation and catchment systems, while the hovering museum above expands to form open atriums, allowing diffuse light to brighten the space and passive airflow to comfortably condition the building.

23 Parks in Kiev, Ukraine by Maxwan

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

Article source: Maxwan

This project sets out not to create one park, but many great parks. Given the shear scale of the project the idea is not to create a singular grand vision, but to create a framework for thinking about the idea of a park that is intrinsically related to how to successfully implement the park over time. In reality, most parks are composed of a series of separate spaces that are somehow bound together. This design embraces that reality and showcases it. This diverse set of spaces combined with the four binding elements, shown raw, gives the park its distinct identity.

23 Parks

  • Architect: Maxwan
  • Name of Project: 23 Parks
  • Location: Kiev, Ukraine
  • Program: Masterplan & detailed design of European Square
  • Client: City of Kiev, Central Department for Urban Planning, Architecture and Urban Design
