Continental Towers in Stockholm, Sweden by C. F. Møller Architects

Sunday, April 15th, 2012

Article source: C. F. Møller Architects

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.

Vertical Patio in Seattle, Washington by PIQUE llc

Saturday, April 14th, 2012

Article source: PIQUE llc

This back yard patio situated on a small urban lot in Seattle provided an opportunity to explore how a very simple and contained architecture can animate a space and continually surprise and engage its owners.

The challenge was the client’s interest in adding a large amount of program (grill patio, hot tub, changing room, dining table, bar, stool, reading area, and security gates) while maintaining as much open area as possible.  The solution began with a calculation of the allowable building area in the back yard which was then transferred directly into two vertical planes.  Through a series of hinges and pivots, the individual bits of program are housed in these two vertical walls. Sun/shadow studies derived where the specific locations for the various programs would be within the composition of the wall.
