Transformation in Charrat, Switzerland by clavienrossier architectes hes/sia

Saturday, February 11th, 2012

Article source: clavienrossier architectes hes/sia

Situated away from a small village in the middle of the Swiss Alps (Canton of Valais), this 19th century house included an adjacent barn and had a too vast volume to be renewed in its totality. The existing building had no special qualities apart from the thick stone walls hidden by external plaster cement. The double-sided pitched roof was too low to allow us seeing the surrounding landscape from the garret floor. The existing windows were small; a large part of the volume was blind, half the building was being used as a barn. Consequently, we preferred to intervene directly on the existing building, walls and roof included.

BTEK – Technology Interpretation Centre in Zamudio, Spain by ACXT Architects

Saturday, February 11th, 2012

Article source: ACXT Architects

BTEK is a new technologies interpretation centre, focused on student visits. The most significant determinants set by the developer, Parque Tecnologico SA, were the following:

  • The generation of a very flexible and varied exhibition area, capable of hosting all sorts of exhibition.
  • The design of high efficiency building services and the use of renewable energies.
  • The projection of a roof (destined to lodge the solar panels) of a similar geometry to that of its triangular logo.

One of the main goals of the project is to come up with an implantation solution adapted to the surroundings, in a plot with a certain geometrical and topographical complexity, uniting architecture and urbanization, thus deleting the limits between indoors and out.

Magdeburg in Germany by maxwan architects+urbanists

Saturday, February 11th, 2012

Article source: maxwan architects+urbanists

Magdeburg, founded upon the Elbe River, has a history of scientific innovation. The scheme takes the existing bland, but quite functional campus and adds a series of gathering spaces. These linked spaces continue eastward to form the framework for the future development of a tech center, while also connecting to the historic harbor and the riverfront. This forms a car free spine that brings together diverse users to mingle in a series of mixed use spaces. Additionally, new pathways complete a previously broken link in the green network of the city. The signature element along the spine is a covered public forum that resides adjacent to the pedestrian underpass and is topped by a cinema and conference center.

Article source: Alberto Campo Baeza

The project “Between Cathedrals” seeks to create an intervention worthy of the most significant location in the history of Cadiz, the oldest city of the West: the empty space facing the sea located between the Old and New Cathedrals.

The basic premise is to cover and protect an archeological excavation. Additionally, this new plane serves as a base for a space facing the ocean, a raised public space providing clear views unobstructed by cars passing on the circle road.

Schuler Villa in Neuchâtel, Switzerland by Andrea pelati architecte

Saturday, February 11th, 2012

Article source: Andrea pelati architecte

In the center of the village of Boudry, the project settles on a narrow plot, surrounded with collective housing, a church and an old mansion. In this motley context and its limited openings, the villa seeks to favor the inhabitants intimacy. Turning its back to the public space, it is widely opened on the park and benefits from the natural green environment. It stretches over three levels to be able to appreciate a few perspectives thanks to the height.

Moliner House in Zaragoza, Spain by Alberto Campo Baeza

Saturday, February 11th, 2012

Article source: Alberto Campo Baeza

To build a house for a poet. To make a house for dreaming, living and dying. A house in which to read, to write and to think.

We raised high walls to create a box open to the sky, like a nude, metaphysical garden, with concrete walls and floor. To create an interior world. We dug into the ground to plant leafy trees.
