Mop House in Kuwait by AGi architects

Friday, April 27th, 2012

Article source: AGi architects

The site can be accessed from either side of the surrounding streets to allow for both a private and a public entrance. After moving along a curved wall that guides the visitor from the exterior of the plot into the center, one reaches the main entrance into the house. Upon entering through the main door frame, the space opens up to reveal the swimming pool and the public living areas of the house.

Lookout Point and Coffee restaurant in Jalisco, Mexico by Dellekamp Arquitectos + Claudia Rodríguez

Friday, April 27th, 2012

Article source: Dellekamp Arquitectos

This is a neutral architectonic intervention that complements TOA’s (Taller de Operaciones Ambientales) landscaping master plan and Herzog de Meuron’s Museo de Arte Moderno y Contemporáneo (Modern and Contemporary Art Museum) located in the Parque Mirador Independencia of Guadalajara, Jalisco. The lookout-­‐point and coffee-­‐restaurant rivet the natural disemboguement of Av. Independencia but unobtrusively align to the sliding gesture of the landscape. Both facilities were achieved through a single architectonic manoeuver that consisted of an excavation and displacement of the look-­‐out ground onto a jutting platform.

Rossignol Global Headquarters in Saint Jean de Moirans, France by Herault Arnod Architectes

Friday, April 27th, 2012

Article source: Herault Arnod Architectes

The image of Rossignol, a historic leader in the world of skiing, is intimately linked to the mountains and to snow. The project for its global headquarters has nothing to do with the stereotypical office building, but is a tribute to nature and to the peaks, but also to technology, which is inseparable from top-level sport. The plot stands in the middle of a plain surrounded by mountains. It is a stretch of former farmland, marshy and perfectly flat, bounded on the northern side by the Lyon-Grenoble motorway. The architecture has been designed specifically for Rossignol, a fusion of the company’s functional and fantasy aspects, in a surprising and minimalist form: it is inspired by board sports, by fluidity of motion, and also by relief, snow and glaciers sculpted by the elements. The roof, which envelops the whole project, is topography in osmosis with nature and the landscape. Its organic, timber-clad shape echoes the profile of the mountains that surround the site.

TENNISCALATOR in växjö, sweden by david tajchman

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

Article source: David tajchman

Tenniscalator is a proposal for a new tennis centre in Vaxjo, Sweden. Made entirely out of wood it spans an area of 9000 m2. The site chosen for the project is large enough to welcome a one level tennis complex programme. However, a quick analysis of the areas shows the possibility of concentrating everything in almost 10% of the plot area. this concentration in the northern part of the parcel allows the development of a 13652 square meters landscape facing the future built developments. Layering tennis courts is aimed to give a landmark character to the proposal. The wooden totem reaches a height of 58 meters. Not too high, nor too flat, this iconic piece of wood is now visible from far, easy to recognize, easier to identify the neighbourhood.
Building compact permits environmental advantages such as economies of energies and displacements. Heating, ventilation, water, gas and electricity networks are shorter in a vertical setting then in the horizontal one.

BERKLEE COLLEGE COMMISSIONS WSDG FOR MAJOR PROJECTS

Concurrent Work On Two Continents: Boston, Mass. & Valencia, Spain

In a patent message of confidence in education and the inherent strengths of the world economy, the Berklee College of Music has embarked on a significant expansion program.  In Valencia, Spain, an entirely new campus opened in January, 2012. In Boston, the first ground-up building in Berklee’s 66-year history, 160 Massachusetts Avenue, a 16-story, $100 million structure, began construction in December 2011. While U.S. and Spanish architects were engaged to create strikingly disparate footprints for each of these bold projects, a single internationally recognized studio design and acoustical consultancy, the Walters-Storyk Design Group, was commissioned to create the audio education studios for both these learning complexes.

67 Dwellings in Colmenar Viejo, Madrid, Spain by dosmasunoarquitectos

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

Article source: dosmasunoarquitectos

Flying across the Madrilenian mountains, we chose a hill to land on. Its slope enabled us to establish a visual relationship with the surroundings, gazing Colmenar Viejo, the mountains and Madrid’s metropolitan area in the horizon.

The local topographic and geologic conditions are preserved and used as the main leit-motivs of the intervention. Its rocky, naturally-pitched substratum suggested hovering on top of it instead of altering its original features.

Senior Housing De Dijken 10, Den Haag in Leidschenveen, The Netherlands by HVE architecten

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

Article source: HVE architecten

Situated in Leidschenveen, the youngest district of The Hague, four apartment blocks have been designed by HVE architecten. One of the blocks is social housing; the others are regular housing designed for senior citizens. The initial urban plan of a long, consecutive strip of apartments was redesigned in order to create a visual connection between the separate park areas on either side of the building lot. As a result, four apartment blocks of four and five storeys were designed with a total of 81 apartments.

Kokkola pedestrian centre in Finland by ALA

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

Article source: ALA

Kokkola wanted their currently car-inhabited center area to become obviously pedestrian (with as little effort as possible). We decided to start by placing a tree in the middle of the street. With time, while more trees are planted, the street (sufficient width dimension courtesy of Finnish traffic engineering standard) would turn more into a park, or a square.
