The Mississauga Public Library Project in Ontario, Canada by RDH Architects

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Article source: RDH Architects

The Mississauga Library Project is an adaptive re-use strategy for the major renovation and addition to the Lakeview, Port Credit, and Lorne Park branch libraries, all dating from between 1956 and 1967. The three renovations have been structured as one project, a strategy put forth by the client as a means to use public infrastructure stimulus funds in an efficient manner. Each of the three libraries are situated in park settings; Lakeview and Lorne Park are embedded within established 1950’s suburban neighborhoods and Port Credit is situated adjacent to the Credit River along Lakeshore Road, the commercial ‘high’ street of the old town of Port Credit.

INRA Research Laboratories in Nancy, France by Tectoniques Architects

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Article source: Tectoniques Architects

The Champenoux site in the Lorraine region is one of the five sites of the Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique (National Agronomic Research Institute) in France. Located in the immense forest of Amance, it has added a new laboratories and offices building on the existing site. These high-level technical research centres host French and foreign researchers who work together to study the ecology and genomics of forests. Due to its history and its geographical position, the INRA centre in Nancy has always been largely devoted to the study of the forest and its products (of which timber is the most important). Five hundred people study subjects from the genome to the territory, including the functioning of trees and of ecosystems, as well as the forestry economy and the production of biomass.

Apartment Building in Chailly, Switzerland by Personeni Raffaele Schärer Architectes

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Article source: Personeni Raffaele Schärer Architectes

This building participates to the densification of the northern neighborhoods of Lausanne. Its tectonic derives from the site’s shape and a strict compliance with the building code. It addresses the various conditions around it: the street facing elevation underlines the gentle curve of Temple Avenue while the opposite one follows the waving course of the river Vuachere lined by trees. It is simply organized on three levels. Each apartment has a unique open layout extending out with its own private exterior space (garden, balcony and terrace).

Facing Saint Peter in Rome, Italy by arch. Angelo Luigi Tartaglia

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Article source: arch. Angelo Luigi Tartaglia

Rome – Beyond the glass is Rome, the songs and postcards. There is the atmosphere and the irresistible charm of the capital, is its urban rhythm and then there are the buildings. The context of the setting of this house is the Umbertine quarter of Prati, near the Vatican. The setting planimetric is stiff, typical of the dwellings in this area: entrance, corridor, culminating at the end of the kitchen and the bedroom. In one of these buildings Colavita family lives, better known, especially in the United States, such as “lords of the oil.” “We are a mature couple” – said with a slight smile the owner – and both me and my husband wanted to end up in a home intimate and reassuring that it was neither too much nor too contemporary classic.

Promenade Residence in Isle of Capri, Australia by BGD Architects

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Article source: BGD Architects

Situated on an exclusive residential street, the owner purchased this waterfront property with the view to engage an architect to create their dream home. The home was designed for a family of four with the brief to achieve ideal spaces for work, rest and play. The internal planning required a clever balance to achieve a house of private spaces with maximised outlooks to the Surfers Paradise skyline.  Corten steel screens wrap the first floor bedrooms providing a veil for the bedroom spaces facing the river and the road.

Villa B in Blankenheim, Germany by Schneider+Schumacher

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Article source: Schneider+Schumacher

In 2010, an architectural and landscape limited competition was launched by the municipality of Blankenheim, together with the Regionale 2010 Agentur. It resulted in schneider+schumacher winning first prize with their finely judged answer to the competition brief. This asked for suggestions as to how the former Roman manor – the Villa Rustica – might once again be made visible to the public. Taking up this challenge as their point of departure, the architects have now enhanced the Eifel region with a decidedly sculptural, walk-in installation.

Casa N/S in Bergamo, Italy by dep studio – architettura e design

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Article source: dep studio – architettura e design

Casa N/S lies in the immediate vicinity of the old town of a village in the province of Bergamo. The plot is located in an area characterized by buildings without any great architectonic value, something that has made the architects decide to distinguish the building from its surroundings. The customer’s desire to build a home to leave to his children in the future has led to the realization of a building with two identical and independent units that share a number of facilities, as the tavern, the cellars, the garage and the garden.

Casa FP in Zapopan, Jalisco by TaAG Arquitectura

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Article source: TaAG Arquitectura

The project is developed in a splendid land of 800 m2 with a small gap in a heavily wooded area of Zapopan. The project is solved in two parallel parts to the side and back easements to release most of the land for a terrace and a large garden on which the views of the house are mixed. Taking advantage of the natural slope of the land a half-basement is proposed for the large garage requested for the client.
