New Bauhaus Museum in Weimar, Germany by MenoMenoPiu Architects

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

Article source: MenoMenoPiu Architects

“The transparency makes the continuity between inside and outside, the outside comes inside and vice-versa. An eclectic conquest of the space makes the building not a barrier but a dynamic urban link, crossed by a linear flexible path across Bauhaus history. The idea of creating a new unity by the marriage of many arts and movements”.

TMW technical museum Vienna in Austria by querkraft

Sunday, April 1st, 2012

Article source: querkraft

During summer 2010 the technical museum together with querkraft architekten designed a new entrance foyer and museum shop.

A modern museum service requires a correspondingly modern level of service – for this purpose space is a must. older museum buildings are challenged to expand and modernise whilst remaining attached to their existing historical structures. in the 90s the technical museum faced precisely this difficulty as it tried to gain more space for a larger entrance foyer, a new museum shop and café as well as sufficient amenities, cloakroom space and ticketing capacity. the architectural solution that was chosen in the 90s was a steel-glass box placed in front of the existing historical structure. this solution proved problematic on a few levels shortly after the opening in 1999. the foyer was dominated by large temperature fluctuations, poor acoustics and ventilation, as well as less than optimal visitor circulation.

New Church of Våler in Hovedveien, Norway by CEBRA architecture

Sunday, April 1st, 2012

Article source: CEBRA architecture

Danish architects CEBRA’s proposal for a new church in Våler, Norway creates a symbolic landmark in the shape of a tilting cross using light and wood as key design elements for the interior.

The village of Våler, in the south eastern part of Norway, is in need of a new church in order to replace the village’s old wooden church, which burned down to the ground in 2009. The church is of great importance for the local community – both as a social gathering point and as characterizing landscape element. Therefore, the design of the new church has to combine a particular sensitivity and attention to the site’s culture-historical context with a modern architectural expression so as to succeed in creating flexible and contemporary church facilities.

Hotel Balneum in Tiszafüred, Hungary by Ferdinand and Ferdinand Architects (designed using ArchiCAD, Artlantis, and AutoCAD)

Saturday, March 31st, 2012

Article source: Ferdinand and Ferdinand Architects

The idea of the architect was to endow the building with a modern and esthetic  appearance using traditional local materials. That’s why light plaster was selected together with ceramic roof tiles and plenty of wood –  for terraces, for pergolas and for shields. Thanks to the  flood forests  – in this part of the country wood has always been available for building village houses. Willow tree is probably the most characteristic tree of the region,  twigs and branches of willow trees were wickered to create usefull household objects, such as baskets, armchairs, etc. This tradition was continued in the interior decoration of the spa – the reception desk was made of wickered willow tree, as well as the lampshades of suspension lamps and of consoles, and wicked willow branches were used to shape chests of drawers – all that was hand made by local ladies, in accordance with the local patriot attitude of the owner.
