The Court Of The Trees – New Primary School by Tomas Ghisellini Architects

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

Article source: Tomas Ghisellini Architects

Careful to address the delicate relations of cohabitation especially with the near cemetery, the architecture chooses the path of simplicity, rejecting any unnecessary formal presentation, and sets up in a relationship of dependence and exchange rather than assertion. The building, which is generated by the composition of elementary volumes made of exposed brick and white plaster, shows massive fronts to the streets; architectural language, deliberately discreet and essential, builds the old suggestion of a “defensive” construction for which a compact and seemingly impenetrable basement is in charge of contact with the urban land.

Casa Paracaima in Mexico by DCPP Arquitectos

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

Article source: DCPP Arquitectos

Casa Paracaima is a residential project located in the western part of Mexico City. The plot of land is a 400 square meter rectangle with adjoining restrictions on both the front and sides.

The theoretical idea was to produce the sensation of direct contact with the exterior in those public spaces and erase the physical limits between interior and exterior for the power to create spaces that are contained and where one can realize the major part of their activities.

The Woven Nest in London, England by atmos

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

Article source: atmos

This home for an actress and musician carefully slots between buildings and sitelines, and wraps built-in furniture into every available surface. Both plan and Planning constraints generated a complex series of intertwining spaces, enlivened by light and interconnectivity. The massing was generated from the view-lines along the High Street below, tucked carefully out of sight to achieve planning permission for a new storey with front outdoor space hidden within the row of listed buildings. The roof-form deploys a double-pitched butterfly roof, angling upwards from low flank walls to greet the arriving visitor with taller walls at the central stairwell. A crystalline valley skylight hangs above, flooding the void with light. Staggered floor sections carefully borrow space from below. The V-shape in section repeats in plan to ease a tidy outdoor terrace between new and old façades, the doors from hall and bedroom folding neatly together.

Jameson House in Vancouver, Canada by Foster + Partners

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

Article source: Foster + Partners

Jameson House is a new 35-storey mixed-use tower in the heart of Vancouver and includes the first residential development to be completed by the practice in North America – completed at the end of last year, already the building is now almost fully occupied. The project combines the restoration of heritage buildings with new construction: the lower level offices and shops knit with the existing streetscape to reinvigorate the downtown neighbourhood, while the apartments above face dramatic views of the bay and create a new landmark on the skyline.

Hippodrome Longchamp in Paris by Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

Article source: Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas

The project is part of the existing green spaces, a spontaneous continuity between nature and buildings, between what existed and what have been designed. This led us to the use of elements inspired by organic forms, that become architecture.

The poetic chalices of the stands, that remind of the convolvulus flower, creates plays of light and shadow through the corollas, underlining the design of the project. Architectural “flowers” that protect from the sun during the day and illuminate the interior spaces during the night.

VILLA S in Vienna, Austria by buerger katsota architects

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

Article source: buerger katsota architects

The scheme aims at accommodating and negotiating the differing and ever changing needs of an extended family. A generous, skylight staircase becomes the gallery of the house and the core of the home linking the two dwellings. Living areas of different sizes and acoustic qualities are designed to cater for music events and social gatherings of various scales. Between the ‘built’ and the ‘un-built’ of the lush urban garden, frames, platforms, niches and extrusions, create intricate relations and unexpected perspectives.

  • Project title: VILLA S
  • Location: Hietzing, Vienna, Austria
  • Project description: Private residence for an extended family

Stills Flagship store in Amsterdam, The Netherlands by Doepel Strijkers

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

Article source: Doepel Strijkers

On the Cornelis Schuijtstraat in Amsterdam a flagship store has been realized for the label Stills. The spatial interventions in the hull, which visually connects the floors, are not emphasized by smoothing them but has been kept visible to show additions and finishing layers over time. There is a base from which the original shop and its transformations over time remained visible. This pattern of textures in the existing building is complemented by an object. A spatial translation based on the values of the label.

Angkasa Raya in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia by Buro Ole Scheeren

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

Article source: Ole Scheeren

Angkasa Raya, situated in Malaysia’s capital at the intersection of Jalan Ampang and Jalan P. Ramlee, directly across the well-known Petronas Twin Towers in the heart of Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC), presents a new typology in high-rise skyscraper design that overtly expresses the inhabitation of diverse urban activities in a tropical environment and captures the vibrancy of the city’s multifaceted culture. Angkasa Raya is comprised of five distinct elements – three floating elevated tower blocks and two multi-level zones of open horizontal slabs – that are autonomous yet connected to one another in a uniquely stacked and shifting configuration of varied functional and urban typologies. Rather than competing with the Twin Towers in the form of another “twin” or blending into the surrounding context of singular towers on a podium, Angkasa Raya offers a new contemporary reading of the capital city and stands as an icon of the harmonious and dynamic balance of Malaysia’s cultural multiplicity and diversity.
