The former Palencia Provincial Prison complex was created at the end of the XIX century, built with brick bearing walls following the “neomudéjar” style, and composed mainly of four two-storey wings and some other with one storey. On this building was planned a comprehensive refurbishment to transform the former use and convert it into a center that promotes the social and cultural activity in this part of the town.

Light well House in Kyoto, Japan by Keiichi Hayashi

Sunday, April 15th, 2012

Article source: Keiichi Hayashi

The site of the house is located in the end of a narrow lane in a dense residential area. It is surrounded by retaining walls of adjacent plots which are raised on the north and east side. The house was designed for a young couple and their child on such a sunken site.

The structure of the house is reinforced concrete on the ground floor and wooden structure on the first floor. Volume of the house is automatically decided by building bylaws such as FSI for floor area of the house and height restriction for the height of the house. That volume is placed unintentionally in the centre of the site, which resulted to create two open spaces on the east and west side.

The tower block construction in Stockholm has been planned in connection with the extension of the City Line rail link.

The complex of 100 metres, the equivalent of approximately 30 stories, will include a hotel, offices and possibly housing. The building will be equipped with an entrance to a new station at street level directly opposite the city’s old main railway station, Centralen, and will therefore be a landmark for Stockholm’s new metro.

Tosetto, Weigmann and Associates in Turin, Italy by MARC

Sunday, April 15th, 2012

Article source: MARC

MARC is commissioned to transform an elegant mansion from the beginning of the 20th century into an efficient contemporary office building. To do that it needs to perform radical and pragmatic interventions, optimizing the use of space. At the same time, it is necessary to respect the existing rooms and preserve their charm, but without being intimidated by their cold classicism. The project looks for discretion and neutrality while inserting all the many necessary new elements. Like the new staircase in perforated metal -the trigger of the typological change- that connects seven different levels illuminating them with a big skylight.

LETH & GORI’s project for an extension to Music Gymnasium Salzburg received a 3. Price in the open international competition.

The project creates a new extension to the school without stealing space or light from the existing densely built site. This is done by digging out the northern part of the site and inserting the extension as a onestorey building with courtyards and skylights. The roof of the building becomes a new playful urban landscape for the students.
