Built along the St. Lawrence River at the bottom of the Massif de Charlevoix mountain, the Grande Pointe railway station gives clients of the new tourist train and shuttle access to the mountain.

Housing development Nuerensdorf Zurich, Switzerland

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

Article source: kit architects in collaboration with schibliholenstein architekten

The new residential development on the outskirts of the town Nuerensdorf consists of six buildings, which occupy the land equally. The loose alternating arrangement allows multiple connections to the open countryside in the north and to the garden framed single and multifamily dwellings in the immediate neighborhood. With their windmill-like floor plan the buildings fit the scale of the existing context. A seven and a four unit house are the two basic types, both combining duplexes with detached character, ground floor apartments and penthouses. All dwellings are dual aspects with private outdoor spaces along the recessed corners – on ground floor level as perches followed by private gardens, on first floor level as loggias and on the attic floor as spacious terraces. The individual units are organized by an entrance zone with compactly arranged adjoining rooms, a bedroom zone and an open-plan living-dining area with interesting cross and external references.

Article source: 3XN Architects

‘Stockholm City Station’ will mark the entrance to Stockholm’s inner city center and integrates the station, a hotel and conference center along with apartments. The main idea behind the design was to create a building that gently adjusts to the area’s existing building in scale and expression, and which reinterprets a number of local Swedish design traditions.

Soaring 95 stories above the South Bank of the Thames, The Shard at London Bridge Quarter is the tallest building in Western Europe. As its name suggests, the building is comprised of multiple glass shards that merge to form an elongated pyramid, creating a complex structural form with many design challenges. The skyscraper was also designed for sustainability, using recycled construction materials and targeting an “Excellent” BREEAM rating. The developer, Sellar Property Group chose WSP to deliver a technical solution for The Shard that was financially viable.

K-HOUSE in Nagoya city, Japan by D.I.G Architects

Wednesday, August 29th, 2012

Article source: D.I.G Architects

A small house located on a steep slanting slope. The client simply wanted a life with a blessing of nature nearby and the beautiful townscape in distance. The site was steeply sloped down, almost like a cliff, leaving only a narrow platform wide enough for a car. We first had an idea to excavate the ground to generate a living space.  Corresponding the nature form, heterogeneous and flexible space would retrieve the enchantment of the site. Not a house constructed on a cliff, but a habitat generated by the nature form of the cliff. A habitat like a pit or a shed posteriorly discovered in the terrains of landscape.
