Hotel Caldor in Vienna, Austria by Söhne & Partner Architects

Monday, March 19th, 2012

Article source: Söhne & Partner Architects

Seedörfl is a small collection of houses, the surrounding landscape is flat. To the northeast the federal highway B16 cuts through the fields. The two-storey folded volume of the building with its projecting snout, bedrooms on the first floor and striking perforated bands along the façade looks like a built logo. The large asphalted approach, turning and parking area and the self check-in facility in the open foyer give the building something of the flair of a motel. Rooms – from a size of only ten square meters – are reduced on a minimum which doesn’t feel small. The materials are reduced to a minimum too. The bathroom is screened by glass panes with a sliding door. As a result the red three-dimensional bathroom strip becomes an integral part of the room. Guests receive their key when they want – on the early morning or late night.

Light Rhythm in New York by Workshop/apd

Monday, March 19th, 2012

Article source: Workshop/apd

This bright three-bedroom apartment in a 1960s high-rise near Lincoln Center was created from the combination of two smaller units. Since the owners frequently host visiting children and grandchildren, the emphasis was placed on family gathering spaces. A central zone highlighted by a change in the wood floor patterning and bounded by slatted wood dividing walls connects the far corners of the combined unit. In the kitchen, elongated glass tiles along the walls echo the horizontal banding of the slatted wood dividers.
