Kemenes Volcanopark Visitor Center in Celldomolk, Vas County, Hungary by Foldes Architects

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

Article source: Foldes Architects

Though Hungary, located in Central Eastern Europe, is not rich in active volcanos, a large expanse of the country used to be volcanic some 5 million years ago. However, this does help ensure good quality soil for high level wine production, one of Hungary’s largest export products.

Glass Pavilion in California by MARK DZIEWULSKI ARCHITECT

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

Article source: MARK DZIEWULSKI ARCHITECT

A new sculptural glass pavilion is the key element for the makeover of this 1970’s office tower, which includes the lobby, retail space and the exterior facade. The dynamic and transparent form provides a dramatic entrance that is intended to transform the perception of the entire building. It creates a highly visible identity and has become a recognizable landmark within the business district. As well as the new pavilion, the project includes stone cladding to the exterior, a new lobby and additional retail space.

Bada Bing in Montreux, Switzerland by Bureau A

Saturday, October 12th, 2013

Article source: Bureau A

James Gandolfini died on the 19th of June 2013, a few weeks before the 47th Montreux Jazz Festival. He was the leading character of one of HBO’s best series: The Sopranos. He embodied the complete range of clichés of the Italian American mafia developed beforehand by great film directors such as Martin Scorsese or Francis Ford Coppola (The Godfellas in 1990 for the first, The Godfather in 1972 for the second).

House IV in Eindhoven, The Netherlands by De Bever Architecten

Saturday, October 12th, 2013

Article source: De Bever Architecten

The house is situated on a corner lot in the typical 30’s district ‘de Elzent’ against the natural landscape of the river Dommel valley, in the center of Eindhoven, The Netherlands. The existing main house is relatively small in structure, however the lot size is sufficient enough to resist an carefully threaded extension. An extension where extra comfort is added to the existing house.

Renovation of Casa Dorda in Murcia, Spain by Martin Lejarraga Architect

Saturday, October 12th, 2013

Article source: Martin Lejarraga Architect

The city of Cartagena is full of scars that have marked its layers at varying depths (“the puff pastry city”, Carlos García Vázquez) throughout the city’s history.

And it is among these layers and between party walls where one must attempt to preserve the life of the city, through interventions involving the renovation, revitalization and regeneration of the residential urban weave, of the dwelling, which, in sum, is the use that maintains and accelerates the pace of the city.
