Brick A Back House in Dublin, Republic of Ireland by Architecture Republic

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

Article source: Architecture Republic

A Redbrick terrace in Irish town is folded in on itself to open a space for living.

On passing though the brick wall which is common to all houses on the street, one is generally met with small rooms lined in carpet and wallpaper. In this case one finds that very wall folded right back into the interior and garden beyond.

HDJ 65 in Baja California, Mexico by T38 Studio

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

Article source: T38 Studio

On a sloping site with a privileged view of the city, we designed a house for a young family. The main design criteria was that every interior space would have a relation with exterior space. To accomplish that, our approach was to integrate outdoor space at every level of the house, be it a garden or terraces. Other spaces we would open up to the exterior by extensive use of glass positioned to take advantage of the landscape surrounding the site.

As part of a limited competition for the City of Sydney, HASSELL undertook the challenge to rejuvenate Perry Park in the inner-Sydney suburb of Alexandria.

Taking the themes of sport and ecology, the HASSELL response provides for a range of passive and active recreational activities within a park and wetland setting. Our goal was to create a destination for both individuals and groups; a place where sport and ecology mix seamlessly, support and complement one another in a balanced environment.

Gunoot Eco-Resort in Muscat, Oman by SSH International

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

Article source: SSH International

In the remote South of Oman there is a fishing village Shuwaimia on a 30KM virgin beach. Our client is a regional developer interested in developing 1 million square meters of precious land where the mountains meet the Indian Ocean. Various master plans submitted resulted in high density over development and the remoteness of the location made it not feasible financially. We proposed a different approach.

This project took second place in the Tower House Competition for Treviso, Italy, which challenged architects to refurbish a twenty story landmark in the area. The proposal transforms the existing tower into 3 attached structures, each of which is designed with its own energy strategy. Photovoltaic panels on the roof and south façade provide 60 + 15 kw of power, which combined with bioclimatic devices brings the CO2 emissions down to zero.

Origami is a Japanese traditional craft of paper folding.

The pillars are made of folded steel plates like Origami.

“Circle” consist of units of pillars sorted continuously enable this structure to bear vertical load and make multi-storied large space and resists earthquakes plastically. Also “Core wall” which surrounds the Central Void improves earthquake-resistance.

Sited near a quiet countryside site in Beijing, the Artist Village Gallery consists of a private museum and two private houses. The inspiration of the architecture originates from a Chinese watercolor painting, aiming to develop an environment that blurs architectural boundaries with natural surroundings, resulting in a series of fluid spaces that provide the visitor a unique experience. This project attempts to express an architecture that captures the beauty of Chinese ink paintings.
