Article source: 3deluxe

Following the international award-winning Leonardo Glass Cube 3deluxe have once again completed a piece of corporate architecture with an ambitious design and expressive formal language.

The client was Kaffee Partner, a leading supplier of commercially used coffee brewing machines in Germany. In February 2012, following a construction period of just 16 months, a 100-metre tripartite building complex with 9,800 sq.m. of floor space was completed on an area of 28,600 sq.m. in Osnabrück. The extremely cost-effective design unites the aesthetic impact of a sculptural architectural object with the efficient functionality of commercial buildings.

Housing 137 in Barcelona, Spain by H Arquitectes

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

Article source: H Arquitectes

The Urban Planning for ‘Plaça de l’Església’ in Granollers intends to regain the role of this square within the old part of town.

Our plot is the key factor for the consolidation of this centrality, due to it occupies the space that gives continuity to Barcelona Street and connects with ‘Plaça de la Porxada’.

The three facades of the building become a single skin that, thank to the continuous use of the stone even in the shutters, unifies the volume and consolidates the characteristic predominance of the massive-wall facades in the old quarter.

Archipelago Cinema in Kudu Island, Thailand by Buro Ole Scheeren

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

Article source: Buro Ole Scheeren

The final night of the first edition of Film on the Rocks Yao Noi took place on Archipelago Cinema, designed by German-born and Beijing-based architect Ole Scheeren. Guests were taken by boat through the darkness of the sea to arrive on a glowing raft in the middle of the quiet waters of Nai Pi Lae lagoon on Kudu Island. Surrounded by a dramatic landscape of towering rocks emerging from the ocean, the audience experienced an atmospheric convergence of nature and cinematic narratives – primordial notions of light, sound and stories suspended in the darkness between sea and sky.

T-trees by Light Space

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

Article source: Light Space

Designed by Adil Azhiyev and Ivan Kudryavtsev of Light+Space to help alleviate the problems of suburban sprawl with a site-sensitive vertical structure composed of two design elements — a central core containing an elevator and stars, and a lofted series of prefab housing modules. Like the trunk of a tree the core serves as the base, while the housing modules are stacked one on top of the other to create a tower of alternating cubes and activated space.

Vetlanda Group-Home in Vetlanda, Sweden by Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

Article source: Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture

KKA has designed a new group-home for six young disabled persons situated in the rural town of Vetlanda. The dwellers expressed a strong wish for the building not to have the appearance of a large complex but rather to relate to the scale of surrounding villas and farmhouses. Therefore we designed each dwelling with its own pitched roof. The houses are gathered around a common dining room. Much effort was put in to design the homes to suit the users´ specific needs of universal design.

Bridge Studio in Newfoundland, Canada by Saunders Architecture

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

Article source: Saunders Architecture

As with all the Fogo Island Arts Corporation’s Art Studios, Bridge Studio is paired with a traditional Newfoundland Saltbox house, this one is located in Deep Bay, the smallest community on Fogo Island with a population of one hundred and fifty people. The Bridge Studio’s Saltbox House is a freshly painted, in sharp contrast to its dilapidated condition, only a few months previous. A local carpenter who is putting the finishing touches on the house, points out the project’s double-hung, wood frame windows that were crafted at the local woodshop, initiated and operated by the Shorefast Foundation.

Chapel at CREU-IL in Porto, Portugal by Nuno Valentim Arquitectura Lda

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

Article source: Nuno Valentim Arquitectura Lda

The program consisted in the extension of a small chapel at a University Centre in Oporto. The twenty year old Centre was implanted at the end of a private garden. The existing chapel was too small for the number of students attending services and there was a wish to extend it to an area of 50m². The assumptions were as followed:

– reduced costs;
– open the space towards the garden;
– maximum comfort for users.

The main ideas flowed poetic and swiftly… Many references blended into this rare architectural work, with a theme that had always been of our interest.

Fiber-Grass in Delhi, India by Dinkoff Architects & Engineers Inc.

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

Article source: Dinkoff Architects & Engineers Inc.

The composition of the project is a replica to the picture with grassy field provided by the client; it invented the name for the project, “FIBER-GRASS”.  This theme also implied the extensive use of Sustainable Architecture everywhere in the design.   The woven grass fibers are interposed on the site and intersected by the already established vocabulary of IT buildings. The “conversation” launched between the two, forms a new construct which challenges the traditional approach in architecture- the platonic volumes are visualized by their fractions looking for completion of the arrangement together with the existing IT buildings. They become as prosthesis for each other- the linearity of the landscape, established by already constituted orthogonal system, is interrupted by a new one of the lately added buildings to reverse again in a different direction to the previous.
