Starbucks Coffee at Dazaifu Tenmangu Omotesando in Fukuoka Prefecture by Kengo Kuma & Associates (designed with Rhino, Grasshopper, and 3dS Max)

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Article source: Kengo Kuma & Associates

Location of this Starbucks is somehow characteristic, as it stands on the main approach to the Dazaifu Tenmangu, one of the most major shrines in Japan. Established in 919 A.D., the shrine has been worshiped as “the God for Examination,” and receives about 2 million visitors a year who wish their success. Along the main path to the shrine, there are traditional Japanese buildings in one or two stories. The project aimed to make a structure that harmonizes with such townscape, using a unique system of weaving thin woods diagonally.

Rue Pierre Rebiere in France by Nicolas Laisné & Christophe Rousselle

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Article source: Nicolas Laisné & Christophe Rousselle

The two buildings stand within a narrow stretch of land with a width of twelve meters, in spite of this constrained configuration the design is freeing itself from it through the expression of the volumes offering “an true attic at every level”

Different and complementary, the two buildings have a visual contrapuntal communication, in rhythm with the Rue Rebière

Whilst the first one expresses major horizontal lines towards the public space, the second is inspired by the trunk’s lines and tree’s canopy, embodied by the use of a vertical wooden cladding.

Pinnacles Desert Discovery Centre in Nambung National Park, Western Australia by Woodhead

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Article source: Woodhead

Woodhead designed the Pinnacles Desert Discovery Centre to experience the unique role of fire, both culturally and environmentally, as part of its design and construction process.

The evocative gesture of ritual burning introduces this specific practice into contemporary Australian architecture. The burning and the burnt remains are integral to the scheme and highlight the relationship between fire, the land and its inhabitants.

Loft Lloydkwartier by Rotterdam, The Netherlands by 123DV Modern Villas

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Article source: 123DV Modern Villas

In a former warehouse in the harbour of Rotterdam a loft is realised. The characteristic of the dwelling is its spaciousness, which exists because of a surplus of space. To maintain this quality, the program of the dwelling is placed into the space in two separate elements. The two elements both have their own materiality and are placed in the space on their own way.

Family House In Kunratice, Czech Republic by Aulík Fišer Architekti

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Article source: Aulík Fišer Architekti

This plot‘s main value that influenced the concept of this two-storied house with a cellar below a part of it is its direct link to Kunratický les (forest). The main living quarters, the viewing centreline passing through the entire ground floor and the two-storied vertical space are opened towards the forest. The house was designed as a relatively small one respecting the overall suitability, for one part of glazing transforms into a roof here. Yet it is sufficient enough to see the selected strip of the garden, forest and sky as a whole, in one vertical format.

Canada Post Corporation in Ontario, Canada by Kingsland + Architects (designed with ArchiCAD)

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Article source: Kingsland + Architects

We were given the task to design a single storey building, the ubiquitous factory / warehouse building with front office. A dissection of the program provided us with a simple theme. By nature of its program, the building consists of two independent spaces. The heart and soul of the building is the letter carriers sortation facility, a function likely defined as ‘blue collar’ and not far from functioning and appearing just like that of a “factory”.

House on Fire Island in New York by Studio Twenty Seven Architecture (designed with Rhino, AutoCAD, and Photoshop)

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Article source: Studio 27 Architecture

This is a summer beach house in the resort community of the Pines on Fire Island New York. The typology of the homes in the Pines is recognizable to anyone who has visited an East Coast Shoreline resort town. It is a builderdriven typology reflecting the pragmatism of the inhabitants of these coastal communities. Almost always the “good sense” pragmatism that allows these homes to be built affordably overtakes the inherent liveliness and natural spirit of the place and creates structures that are a bit dull. This project inserts some of the “spirit of the shore” into this “Yankee thriftiness” residential typology. Common detail and material remain, but the volume of the house is expressed as a skin, rather than as a box-like container. The skin keeps the heat in. Over time, the skin of woven cedar boards will assume the same patina as neighboring houses. Large windows are introduced to reveal a luxurious light interior.
