Kenneally Residence in Oregon by PIQUE llc

Article source: PIQUE llc

Lot 108 has a prominent location in the Tetherow golf development featuring spectacular views of and from the golf course as well as desirable views of the distant landscape. These features combined with our client’s demands for a variety of living spaces with varied degrees of privacy, formal and informal concerns and clear distinctions between workplace and play space armed the project with a long list of things the building needs to achieve. Through in-depth site and program analysis, we were able to manage and prioritize these factors and create a building design that is intensely specific to its site and its occupants as well as sensitive to the environment.

Nobis Hotel in Stockholm, Sweden by Claesson Koivisto Rune Architects

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

Article source: Claesson Koivisto Rune Architects

Towards the end of the 19th century, every self-respecting city erected what it considered to be its biggest and best hotel. It was usually named Grand Hotel and was more often than not paid for out of the private pockets of wealthy barons. These hotels are often still in use today and have a charm that maybe only a century-old ideal of quality can give.

Health Center CAP La Garriga in Barcelona, Spain by Roldán + Berengué, arqts.

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

Article source: Roldán + Berengué, arqts.

Typologically Cap La Garriga is exceptional for the size of the parcel, for the topographical conditions and for its position in the corner of a park.

The building, which actually has five levels of height, but appears to be a two-storey building if perceived from St. Francis Street, and from the park like a one level building with a three level curtain wall background. This is accomplished by making the building grow downwards through a system of patios, so that 60% of the program is located bellow ground.
