The program is organized in two compact urban villas connected by a collective bamboo garden and the semi-underground garage.  All apartments have flexible floor plans and glazed façade with sliding doors.

Northface House in Stavanger, Norway by Element Arkitekter AS

Saturday, May 12th, 2012

Article source: Element Arkitekter AS

The existing house was built in 1969 as a twin to the neighboring building. It did not function well to the demands of 2008-living, neither in the room sizes nor in their solutions, and it had generally a need for restoration work.

Sky Light Pavilion by Nimbu

Saturday, May 12th, 2012

Article source: Nimbu

The conception of an architecture pavilion that is universal, timeless and spaceless shouldn’t be connected with the idea of conceiving a meaningless construction. Instead, an architecture pavilion that intent to be contemporary should be a construction that pursuit the architecture itself. Finnish architect Juhani Pallasmaa says that the renewal of an art, whatever it may be, means rediscovering its deepest essence, and that architecture is a direct expression of the existence, of the human presence in the world.

Residential Complex in Vallecas, Spain by Eugenio Aguinaga Architect

Saturday, May 12th, 2012

Article source: Eugenio Aguinaga

Four linear blocks were arranged on the outer perimeter of the site with a built depth of 11.40 m, to obtain cross-ventilation in all the dwellings and to achieve the largest possible surface area in the interior patio for gardens as well as the best sunlight and ventilation in the dwellings. The four blocks are joined at the corners by lateral pillasters and the lower height blocks are offset from them, thus giving continuity to the façades and forming the block.

Nam June Paik Museum in Yongin City, South Korea by Hackenbroich Architekten

Saturday, May 12th, 2012

Article source: Hackenbroich Architekten

Nam June Paik and his interest for nature and technology inspired us to bring nature and technology into a reciprocal presupposition, where one topic influences the other and vice versa. The building is transformed, generated and dissolved by nature and technology. Instead of defining an opposition between these two issues the project is about the discovery of their interaction.

Tower Studio in Newfoundland, Canada by Saunders Architecture

Saturday, May 12th, 2012

Article source: Saunders Architecture

The Tower Studio is dramatically situated on a stretch of rocky coastline in Shoal Bay, Fogo Island, Newfoundland. The studio’s sculptural silhouette leans both forward and backward as it twists upward. For the average visitor to the island, this windowless black tower, more often than not, provokes a quizzical response and the enviable question, “What’s that?” For the locals, they know that this structure is a project of the Fogo Island Arts Corporation – an art studio opened in June 2011. The Tower Studio’s official opening was one of the most festive and included: a roaring bonfire, flares dramatically shot from its rooftop terrace and the recorded sounds of local whales as a background score.
