VILLA S in Vienna, Austria by buerger katsota architects

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

Article source: buerger katsota architects

The scheme aims at accommodating and negotiating the differing and ever changing needs of an extended family. A generous, skylight staircase becomes the gallery of the house and the core of the home linking the two dwellings. Living areas of different sizes and acoustic qualities are designed to cater for music events and social gatherings of various scales. Between the ‘built’ and the ‘un-built’ of the lush urban garden, frames, platforms, niches and extrusions, create intricate relations and unexpected perspectives.

Stills Flagship store in Amsterdam, The Netherlands by Doepel Strijkers

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

Article source: Doepel Strijkers

On the Cornelis Schuijtstraat in Amsterdam a flagship store has been realized for the label Stills. The spatial interventions in the hull, which visually connects the floors, are not emphasized by smoothing them but has been kept visible to show additions and finishing layers over time. There is a base from which the original shop and its transformations over time remained visible. This pattern of textures in the existing building is complemented by an object. A spatial translation based on the values of the label.

Angkasa Raya in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia by Buro Ole Scheeren

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

Article source: Ole Scheeren

Angkasa Raya, situated in Malaysia’s capital at the intersection of Jalan Ampang and Jalan P. Ramlee, directly across the well-known Petronas Twin Towers in the heart of Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC), presents a new typology in high-rise skyscraper design that overtly expresses the inhabitation of diverse urban activities in a tropical environment and captures the vibrancy of the city’s multifaceted culture. Angkasa Raya is comprised of five distinct elements – three floating elevated tower blocks and two multi-level zones of open horizontal slabs – that are autonomous yet connected to one another in a uniquely stacked and shifting configuration of varied functional and urban typologies. Rather than competing with the Twin Towers in the form of another “twin” or blending into the surrounding context of singular towers on a podium, Angkasa Raya offers a new contemporary reading of the capital city and stands as an icon of the harmonious and dynamic balance of Malaysia’s cultural multiplicity and diversity.

An open but enclosed home by Pitsou Kedem

Friday, January 27th, 2012

Article source: Pitsou Kedem

A modern and minimalistic building that completely eliminates the accepted barrier between the inside and the outside and hides, within its restrained spaces, a dramatic atmosphere and wide open spaces.

The house was built as a vacation home for a family living abroad.  It is situated directly on the coast in the center of the country. The buildings architectural design is based on three central masses that surround a large internal courtyard with a swimming pool at its center.  The masses comprise the border and the barrier between the street, the neighbors and the home’s interior and between the internal courtyard and those same spaces.  The central theme was to create dynamic walls that allow, on the one hand, the elimination of the boundary between the central courtyard and the internal spaces, and on the other hand, the creation of a changing and dynamic facade that allows for the total closure of the façade or different levels of exposure or concealment.

Family House in Lety, Czech Republic by Stempel & Tesar Architekti

Friday, January 27th, 2012

Article source: Stempel & Tesar Architekti

The low price of a plot has been redeemed by very complicated conditions for building a family house. The plot and its limitations were a real challenge; countryside around the river Berounka and the atmosphere of a valley were really charming.  All these circumstances motivated architects to recommend the plot to the client.

House in Lagos, Portugal by Mario Martins

Friday, January 27th, 2012

Article source: Mario Martins

In the south of Portugal, in Lagos, a house has been designed on steep and difficult land, but with a stunning view over the west coast of the Algarve.  The strong sunshine coming from the west also determined the position and character of the house.

The architectural project is determined by technically developed solutions, using sustainable geothermal energy and integrated smart home systems.
