Sint-Martinus in Sint-Truiden, Belgium by Lensass Architects

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

Article source: Lensass Architects

The medieval character of the former inn from 1650 – presently a store –, as well as its original timber framing on the back side, has been fully restored. This very particular building technique, which continued to be used in Limburg for a long time, uses the recycled wood of torn-down buildings. Inscriptions, as well as old mortise and tenon connections testify of the re-use.

Article source: OFIS Arhitekti

“Villa Dular” is a typical modernistic villa originally designed in 1932 by architect Costaperaria; a white cube with an extensive roof terrace and a top volume finished in wooden cladding. It is surrounded by a garden and other similar residences of its time. The villa is currently inhabited by different owners on each floor. The family, who lives on the ground floor, commissioned the redevelopment on the south side of the existing building. The client has a functional disability and is restricted to a wheelchair. He lives with his wife, three children, and a dog.

École Maternelle Javelot in Paris, France by Eva Samuel Architects

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

Article source: Eva Samuel Architects

In the district of the Olympics, the reconstruction of the kindergarten takes the shape of a toy gleaming between the towers and bars nearby.  She participates in the revival of an operation planning, control of the 60/70, dense, and mixed functional. In this lively neighborhood, the city  undertook a project of land consolidation and redevelopment of outdoor spaces. The school, tiny among the towers, intends to play its role in this context: enhancing the image of the equipment and resist the overwhelming  presence of nearby buildings and pervasiveness of the concrete.

Sycamore House in Los Angeles, California by Aaron Neubert Architects

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

Article source: Aaron Neubert Architects

The design direction for an 800 sf master suite addition was determined by the peninsular shape of the property and the desire to respect the 1950’s post & beam house. The addition’s orientation emerged as the negotiation between the existing house, the sloping site, and a beloved sycamore tree.

Deck over a roman site in Cartagena, Spain by Amann-Canovas-Mauri

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

Article source: Amann-Canovas-Mauri

The building is essentially a cover protecting the remains of a Roman assembly (thermal baths, forum and domus) in the archaeological site of Molinete Park in Cartagena, Spain.

This cover is certainly another piece in the historic area of Cartagena whose main architectural challenge is to reconcile very different architectures; from the roman time, passing through baroque to nowadays, making all the interventions vibrate together in the neighborhood. It is a transition element, between very diverse urban conditions: in size, material and structure; from the dense city centre to the sloping park.

Prismatic Colours in Montreal, Canada by Jean Verville Architecte

Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

Article source: Jean Verville Architecte

In downtown Montreal, a loft for an artist who collects contemporary art and design objects is intended to be a tribute to creativity. Architect Jean Verville designed this unusual interior, which is both playfully colourful and sometimes a calm, peaceful white.

To satisfy a client who wants his home life to stimulate creativity and lead him to explore new avenues of work, Verville offers an environment that distils the essence of its owner. Using minimal interventions and simple materials, the architect awakens the senses and blurs the perception of the space.

Confederação Nacional de Municípios in Brazil by OSPA

Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

Article source: OSPA

Since its inauguration, Brasília is present in the imagination of all of the modern architects. Besides all of the inherent symbolism, designing in Brasília presupposes a contextualization with its monumental scale. The architecture that makes Brasília unique, sometimes also makes it distant from the human being and its needs.
