Moderna Museet Malmö in Sweden by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Article source: Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

A starting point was that a new art museum, as a public and cultural building, represents a rare opportunity to create a new node within a city, changing the urban balance and developing the surrounding neighbourhood. In Malmö, a city in the south of Sweden, there was the possibility to create a new art museum with an informal and experimental character, housed within the 1900’s industrial building of the former Electricity plant, which would complement the main museum in Stockholm.

Administrative headquarters of the ‘Groupe e’ in Fribourg, Switzerland by IPAS Architectes SA

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Article source: IPAS Architectes SA

The ‘Groupe e’ poster goals against the current, luckily, he asked the architects to imagine living spaces always becoming, places that re-qualify the individual and collective work: communication, transparency, fun at work, exchange , adaptation. Intentions infinitely precious, simple as water that nourishes life and a contemporary design because it goes against the trends of our time. On the site there – in touch – the campaign and its houses clustered, rural – on the edge – the village of Granges-Paccot and scattered houses – finally – a direct communication with the city of Fribourg.

The Vasquez Rocks Nature and Interpetive Center is a vital gateway to a unique asset in the Los Angeles County Parks system. The high-desert site is one of the most significant natural areas in the region; its sculptural rock formations have inspired generations of visitors and provided the backdrop to dozens of Hollywood movies and television shows. Its location along the Pacific Crest Trail affords hikers on a 2,650-mile walk from Mexico to Canada an unforgettable point of reference.

HDM House in Lisbon, Portugal by Sara Antunes Mário Ferreira Arquitectos (designed using AutoCAD and Revit)

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Article source: Sara Antunes Mário Ferreira Arquitectos

This house is located in a privileged area of Lisbon, at the southern end of a row of houses. This neighbourhood, built in the 1950’s by the state as social housing, in a “nationalistic” style, has a homogenous character, with the repetition of a type with slight variations, and cohesive public space, which promotes a strong sense of community that, is so hard to find in the more fragmented contemporary city.

Lockyer House in Brisbane, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects

The “Lockyer House” is a small, contemporary extension onto a post war house in Bardon, a heavily treed and hilly fringe suburb in Brisbane. The design looks to address two primary architectural issues, the first is about context and language, the second is about finding the “essence” of what is needed from an accommodation/ resource perspective in an effort to create a engaging but practical and economical outcome.

The Pine Lake Cottage emphasizes affordability with an eye for efficiency. Emerging from the tear down of the previous residence, this cottage was built entirely on the preexisting foundation. In addition to being a cost effective solution this strategy also minimized the buildings impact on the surrounding natural environment.

Extension of the Sports Hall in Eichi, Switzerland by L3P Architekten AG

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Article source: L3P Architekten AG

The existing Eichi Centre stands out through the composition and no-frills interaction of the simple cube. The rough plastering in various warm tones that is used on the facade comes alive with the interaction of light and intensity. The centre was built in 1985 by the architect Walter Schindler and in 2007 the new schoolhouse annex was completed by our office. In mind of a continuation, we used the same facade materials for the sports / school hall extensions. The existing colour concept in warm orange-red tones is continued and extended with a new colour tone.
