Article source: GMP Architekten

The design by architects von Gerkan, Marg and Partners (gmp), which was honoured with first prize in an international competition, converts a former industrial heritage building to the north of Bologna into a modern technology park. The factory facilities of the former tobacco monopoly, designed by the famous Italian engineer and architect Pier Luigi Nervi are carefully modernised and converted to accommodate new functions. The additional new buildings carry the signature of the listed historic buildings dating from the 1940s, albeit in modern form.

Modern Renovation of pre-war Townhouse in Chelsea, NYC by Julianking Architect

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

Article source: Julianking Architect

The project is the renovation of a pre-war townhouse on an historic block in Chelsea, NYC, focusing on the garden apartment. The garden duplex was originally dark and in disrepair: a cramped kitchen had inadequate windows facing the rear yard, the parlor level, with ornate molding, and etched glass, opened clumsily into a bedroom facing a rear yard.

Villa Hendrikx in Almere-Haven, The Netherlands by 70F Architecture

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

Article source: 70F Architecture

The commission (September 2007) consisted of a detached house on a plot in residential area Overgooi in Almere, at the foot of the Gooimeer dike. The family wanted, except for transparency and privacy, a strong integration of the plot with the building as opposed to a block on a mound. The house is a two-story building with traditional planning, living on the ground floor and sleeping upstairs. The building is divided into three parts: a two-storey main entrance building facing the front garden, a patio and connecting hallway as an open area in between, and finally the living area in a one-story volume in the middle of the plot.

Roger Vivier in Paris, France by Marion | Compleet

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

Article source: Marion | Compleet

The purpose was to reconnect with the identity of Roger Vivier’s house in order to accompany the renewal of the brand that created, among other things, the stiletto heel in 1954.

The work was led in close relationship with Inès de la Fressange, director of the brand and Bruno Frisoni, artistic director. We aimed to give each room the prestige of Roger Vivier’s history and a contemporary design vision. Based on the Faubourg Saint-Honoré Street, the store spreads on 3 levels in a sweet and luminous atmosphere. Outside, the screen shop-window made of “priva light” let the ground floor appear through the frames of various windows.

Footbridge over the River Segre in Lleida, Spain by Ravetllat Ribas Arquitectos

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

Article source: Ravetllat Ribas Arquitectos

The footbridge seeks only to be a link between the two banks of the river Segre where it crosses the city of Lleida. Understood more as an itinerary than as a place in which to remain, the new footbridge at no time pretends to erase the perception of being suspended at a great height over the riverbed. This thought has led to an adjusted dimensioning that make compatible pedestrian and bicycle traffic with that of service vehicles. In this way, the crossing of the entire width of the river is solved with two single pillars and no other support.

LUX – Landscape design in Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg by AllesWirdGut Architektur ZT GmbH

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

Article source: AllesWirdGut Architektur ZT GmbH

Between forward-facing high-rise buildings and blast furnaces of the past the new Steelyard square forms the center of Belval Ouest, a city development project which is currently constructed in Luxembourg on the grounds of a former steel mill. The disused industrial site´s atmosphere was characterized by wideness and roughness as well as pioneer plants such as mosses and birch. The former situation is necessarily literally covered by the new use and new design. Our major goal was it to let the now hidden qualities shine through the redesign.

A House in Pamplona, Spain by Vaillo & Irigaray + Beguiristain

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

Article source: Vaillo & Irigaray + Beguiristain

The renovation of this home suggests a consideration on the consequences to be derived from the implementation of a new -almost palatial- scale.

A strategy has been planned: to shape a sole plan by means of large board pavement – 15m length x 30cm width.

This concept is emphasized by the employment of a theatrical iconography: curtains covering the whole space, disfiguring backgrounds, blurring space continuity and generating some thrilling chambers.

Cycling Center in Gothenburg, Sweden by Weareyou

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

Article source: Weareyou

“Here’s our vision of what a cycling center in the city of Gothenburg could be.

The group called cyclists is a scattered bunch of people ranging from commuters to exercisers and committed athletes. They are also divided by the choice of bike. Commuters rarely hang out with the people getting dirty in the woods and BMX riders have probably never had the chance to ask why roadies shave their legs. This calls for a change and that’s where this proposal took its starting point. Cyclists need an arena just like any other sport: soccer, ice hockey etc. where the stadium acts as the natural meeting point, ambassador of the sport and its practitioners. We also believe that sports are closely connected to everyday behavior and life style.

Stairway Cinema in Auckland, New Zealand by Oh.No.Sumo

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

Article source: Oh.No.Sumo

Stairway Cinema is the third installation by OH.NO.SUMO.

Our ongoing goal is to experiment with architecture and the way it can engage with the public in unique and exciting ways. This project takes inspiration from the site and its inhabitants. The site is the busy pedestrian intersection of two inner city streets in Auckland, New Zealand. It is located between two universities and is a place of ‘unconsidered waiting’. Bus stops and laundromats create a dispersed hard-scape that results in numerous instances of poor quality waiting, while simultaneously failing to provide quality space for social interaction. Members of the public retreat individually into the media offered on their mobile phones. This in turn results in greater separation and dislocation from an existing community that is waiting to be activated. A community must be linked not only virtually but also physically.
