Wilmington Waterfront Park in Los Angeles, California by Sasaki Associates, Inc.

Friday, May 11th, 2012

Article source: Sasaki Associates, Inc.

Once a part of the Pacific coastline, the Wilmington community became disconnected from the waterfront by the Port of Los Angeles—a burgeoning, diverse mix of industrial maritime facilities. After completing the Wilmington Waterfront Master Plan, Sasaki identified three open spaces for implementation: the Wilmington Waterfront Park, the Avalon North Streetscape, and the Avalon South Waterfront Park. The Wilmington Waterfront Park is the first project to be fully implemented. Built on a 30-acre brownfield site, the new urban park revitalizes the community and visually reconnects it to the waterfront.  The park integrates a variety of active and passive uses—informal play, public gathering, community events, picnicking, sitting, strolling, and observation—determined through an extensive community outreach process. The open space serves as a public amenity by doubling the current community open space while also buffering the Wilmington community from the extensive Port operations to the south.

HOUSE 78 in Barcelona, Spain by H Arquitectes

Friday, May 11th, 2012

Article source: H ARQUITECTES

Commission

Courtyard house in Terrassa for a painter and a dancer.

Proposal

The staircase becomes the main point of the layout of the house and leads to the upper floor, where the parlour and terrace/courtyard are. Therefore we go up the noble area avoiding the painting workshop and the bedrooms, which are on the ground floor and the first floor respectively. At the same time an entrance of zenith light is created which lights up the interiors rooms of the housing.

The Teachers House in Oslo, Norway by Element Arkitekter AS

Friday, May 11th, 2012

Article source: Element Arkitekter AS

Element won the competition in November 2004. Three offices were invited: Two well established architectural offices and Element as the “outsider”; a small office with young partners. Further planning started early 2005 and Element was invited to sit in the building committee (in this case me) where important strategic, architectural and economic issues were decided, in total 75 meetings. This was of outmost importance to Element and to the final result/quality. The local building authorities were involved in a very positive way from the very beginning. The same goes for the Byantikvaren, an authority that are interested in saving old buildings.

Tuinstede in Amsterdam, the Netherlands by SNITKER/BORST/ARCHITECTS

Friday, May 11th, 2012

Article source: SNITKER/BORST/ARCHITECTS

Tuinstede is the last of three new blocks that have been built in the Noordstrook, north of Delflandplein in the Amsterdam district New West. The urban design for the Noordstrook is made by Snitker/Borst Architects. In order to increase the density of the neighbourhood the existing modernist open strip building plan will be replaced by three urban closed blocks with large communal courtyards. One of the streets will remain without cars and will be arranged as a playground for children. The urban design will be executed in two phases. Recently the first phase was finished. In a second phase the U-shaped blocks will be completed to closed blocks. The three blocks are designed by Dick van Gameren, ANA and Snitker/Borst Architects, respectively.

Twin Townhomes in Melbourne, Australia by Christopher Megowan Design

Friday, May 11th, 2012

Article source: Christopher Megowan Design

Christopher Megowan Design is pleased to announce the completion of two townhomes in Malvern, an inner suburb of Melbourne, Australia.

The two homes stretch across the site from east to west and use north facing light courts, skylights over the stairs and skillion roofs to the rear lounge to maximize sunlight to the spaces of the two homes which require it most.   The homes achieved an excellent standard of energy efficiency thanks to its creative siting, passive ventilation and thermal mass contained in the rendered brick exterior walls of each home.  Double-glazing, solar panels, solar hot water, LED lighting throughout and rainwater tanks complete the environmental package.

Summer House in Southern Burgenland in Oberbergen, Austria by Judith Benzer Architektur

Friday, May 11th, 2012

Article source: Judith Benzer Architektur

The project Summer House in Southern Burgenland (Austria) describes a sharp-edged cubature which fits into its surroundings through its simplicity and homogeneous appearance. In being used as a summer house, and by virtue of the installation of a wine cellar with production surfaces at a later date, the building’s design is oriented by the cubature of the Kellerstöckel(wine house) typical of the Southern Burgenland region.

The lights and images become part of the body of the surface they inhabit. Does the light mold itself to the architectural forms or do the structures themselves arch into the light? An organic relationship, the urban environment is subtly activated to engage both employees and passersby.

Graffiti Cafe in Varna, Bulgaria by Studio Mode

Friday, May 11th, 2012

Article source: Studio Mode

We built up the interior as natural continuation of the architecture. By functional design we separated the area into two zones: the front zone was incorporated into the exterior creating public space and feeling of console silhouette of the building; the rear zone was separated through floor and roof design that allowed reducing depth of space while keeping the panorama.

Article source: Paul McAneary Architects Ltd

Paul McAnea! Architects have completed their ‘Secret Garden’ project, the transformation of a quintessentially British back garden in a secret location in St Johns Wood, London. The client’s brief was to create an entirely separate space within the confines of their back garden. Paul McAnea! Architects responded with a scheme that uses planting to create architectural layers and depth for a sense of seclusion away from the rapid city diatribe.
