Butcher’s Bridge in Ljubljana, Slovenia by SADAR + VUGA

Wednesday, May 30th, 2012

Article source: SADAR + VUGA

The new Butcher’s bridge concludes the arrangement of the Jože Plecnik’s covered market from the mid-1930s. It connects the market area on the Adamic-Lunder embankment with the new market area on the regulated Petkovšek embankment.

The proposal envisages a ‘house-bridge’ with three horizontal platforms. The lower, the upper and the canopy platforms determine two levels of covered space above the river. The dimensions of the platforms, 39×19 m, enable a continuation of both the market and the public event area on the lower and upper levels of the bridge. All three platforms are equipped with slender bell-shaped columns that alternatingly widen either downwards or upwards, tied to a homogeneous spatial structure. The columns are placed onto the platforms in two longitudinal rows, which leave open a central space on each level. The columns are set at a distance from all edges of the platforms so that the space between the fence of the platforms and the columns offers room for a three-metre passageway.

OCT Design Museum in Shenzhen, China by Studio Pei-Zhu

Wednesday, May 30th, 2012

Article source: Studio Pei-Zhu

The inspiration for the project comes from both the location being close to the bay and from the needs of the program, a surreal space for design exhibitions. The Oct design museum focuses mainly on fashion shows, product design, and conceptual automotive shows. The goal was to create a space that is surreal to the subject matter but also transcendental in surrounding and feeling. The design of the interior relies on a continuous white curving surface that casts no shadows and has no depth.

Wijkeroogpark in Velsen, The Netherlands by Bureau B+B Urbanism and Landscape Architecture

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

Article source: Bureau B+B Urbanism and Landscape Architecture

De Scheybeek rises in the inner dunes near Heemskerk. The lower reaches of the stream, made visible in the park, culminates in the Noordzeelanaal. The natural level of the brook lies about 30 cm. above ground level, approximately one metre above the level of the ditches in the surrounding polder. This artificial situation offers opportunities for nature and recreation, as well as being the starting point for the park design. The brook has been staged together with the new pedestrian and bicycle paths in the extended spaces in the park. A game of meeting and disappearing takes place between the visitor and the stream.

Condominium Trnovski Pristan in Ljubljana, Slovenia by SADAR + VUGA

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

Article source: SADAR + VUGA

Condominium is a two-floor apartment building with fifteen individualized apartments, common entrance lobby, interior winter garden and exterior summer atrium.

Its basic volume is agitated, partitioned and non-monolithic, which allows for optimal illumination of all apartments and a connection of interior area with the exterior through greater greened terraces, consoled balconies and winter gardens. The partitioning of the basic volume continues to the irregular rhythm of the balconies volume. The balconies extend far away from the building, towards the circumferential garden. The partitioning reaches its peak by the composition of façade surfaces made of pixels of multi-coloured ceramic tiles, and pre-dimensioned black metal frames, which link Blown-up Windows and balconies of orange wood.

Mochi Restaurant in Vienna, Austria by Kohlmayr Lutter Knapp

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

Article source: Kohlmayr Lutter Knapp

The story of the two Mochi founders roots in learning how to cook with Pierre Gagnaire and Jean- François Piège in Paris while the other directed BMW World’s restaurant in Munich. Their vision was to create a space where people and ingredients could meet on the highest level of atmosphere and quality. Beyond regular parameters of star cuisine and slick architecture a space should be created challenging a next level of authentic encounter.

House in Praia Preta, Brazil by Nitsche Arquitetos Associados

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

Article source: Nitsche Arquitetos Associados

The house is implanted in a strip of land between the sea and the mountains of the Serra do Mar. Both ecosystems are extremely exuberant. The mountains are covered with the native Atlantic forest (the most bio-diversified ecosystem on the planet). The beach is quite small, and scarcely occupied. The sea water is crystalline, protected by small Atlantic-Ocean islands.

A large parcel of land inside a condominium of few houses with no physical separation among them, makes the natural elements the main aspect to be considered for the building arrangement.
