BBK Sarriko Centre in Bilbao, Spain by ACXT

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Article source: ACXT

The BBK Sarriko Centre is a residential building that combines two different uses: retirement homes and social flats for young people. The design had to be flexible and able to accommodate changes throughout the life of the building, since the client wants accommodation for young people to be the predominant use of the building in the future.

Head Road 1816 in Fresnaye, Cape Town by SAOTA

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Article source: SAOTA

The clients required a four bedroom home for their young family, the design of which had to encapsulate all the qualities of luxury open-plan living while still providing a homely environment.

The practicalities of the site – steepness and town planning restrictions – were key initial drivers in determining the parameters available. The narrow proportion of the property also necessitated the careful consideration of privacy and bedroom accommodation, which is set back from the street or suitably screened.

Loft in Noho, New York City by Jendretzki llc.

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Article source: Jendretzki llc.

This 4,000 square foot classic loft space tries to maintain the openness, utilitarian and industrial language of its raw brick, wood, and steel elements exposed. We created separations between rooms by placing free standing volumes instead of floor to ceiling partitions creating a landscape of intriguing geography, materials, heights, light and shadow.

A Circle in a Square in Niigata prefecture, Japan by Binocle

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Article source: Binocle

Novalis noted that “The curve is the triumph of the freedom on the rule”, Giovanni Lindo Ferretti used to sing that “Straightness is for hastiness” and Oscar Niemeyer kept on explaining: “It is not the right angle that attracts me. Nor the straight line, tough, inflexible, created by man. What attracts me is the free, sensual curve. The curve I find in the mountains of my country, in the sinuous course of its rivers, in the waves of the sea, in the clouds of the sky, in the body of the favorite woman. Of curves is made all the universe.”

Drautal perle in Drau, Austria by MHM architects

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Article source: MHM architects

The indoor and outdoor swimming pool facility “Drautalperle” is located in Spittal/Drau in northern part of the Austrian region of Carinthia, one of the most beautiful fluvial topographies in the Alps.

Therefore the central topic of the design was the fusion between inside room and outside landscape, what has been maintained by placing big windows resembling oxygen bubbles in water. By this means it was possible to break up the usually rigid partition between indoor and outdoor spaces.

Upcycling Pavilion in Mexico City by BNKR Arquitectura

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Article source: BNKR Arquitectura

Expo CIHAC is the biggest annual architecture and construction exhibition in Latin America. Like many other exhibitions, it creates large-scale contamination due to the excess waste it generates. Almost all the pavilions of the different brands and products related to the architecture and construction industry, end up in the trash. Deeply concerned by this, we approached the exhibition principals with the proposal of creating a low cost – zero waste sustainable pavilion that could set an example for future exhibitions.
