Architecture Research Center in Nicosia, Cyprus by Yiorgos Hadjichristou Architects

Sunday, January 15th, 2012

Article source: Yiorgos Hadjichristou Architects

The University of Nicosia decided to accommodate the Architecture Department- ARC Architecture Research Center in an existing shoe factory of the adjacent Engomi industrial area. The choice was part of the strategy of the University to expand the campus in the neighboring industrial zone, a vital decision for the regeneration of the area!
The needs of the architecture department, the restrictions of the existing concrete structure and the low budget defined the approach of the design, which was thoroughly filtered by the weight of the responsibility for the identity of the “Architecture Research Center”: this is the sixth year that the Architecture Programme has been running in the Architecture Department of the University of Nicosia and it already claims to be very of high quality, very Progressive, Experimental with critical thinking approach.

Villa Midgård in Stockholm, Sweden by DAPstockholm

Sunday, January 15th, 2012

Article source: DAPstockholm

When the client met with DAPstockholm they wished for a solid, secluded house with a maintenance‐free facade, a sense of ceiling height and a master bedroom with the benefit of morning sun. They also wished for a solution where they could open up larger windows toward the scenery and have a sheltered space where they could sit and listen to the pouring rain. This resulted in a multi‐faceted house where the shape and direction of the different volumes are based on various factors such as the terrain, the light conditions, the views and the privacy. The volumes give the house seven different facades.
