Haunted play house in Tokyo, Japan by TORAFU ARCHITECTS

Saturday, August 10th, 2013

Article source: TORAFU ARCHITECTS

The Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo presented a summer exhibition for children entitled  GHOSTS, UNDERPANTS and STARS for which we designed a Haunted house.
The concept of this exhibition invites young visitors to consider the paradox of the rules of the museum, such as ‘Don’t Run’, ‘Don’t Touch’ or ‘Keep Quiet’ by allowing behavior normally forbidden in museums.

Westboro Home in Ottawa, Canada by Kariouk Associates

Saturday, August 10th, 2013

Article source: Kariouk Associates

DESIGN CHALLENGE:

The site for this home was a narrow lot in a downtown neighborhood, which carried with it extensive code limitations on side windows. A further challenge was negotiating the difference in grade between the two neighbouring lots:an already steeply sloping site, the neighbours to the West raised their rear yard an additional 1.5m, ultimately creating a difference in neighbouring lot heights of approximately 2.5m

Trish House in Yalding, England by Matthew Heywood

Saturday, August 10th, 2013

Article source: Matthew Heywood

The design of the house developed in direct response to the site and its location within the beautiful village of Yalding in Kent. The building’s structure is composed to reflect the surrounding woodland with the raking columns representing the irregular angles of tree trunks and branches. Large expanses of glass fill the gaps between the structure and allow you to appreciate the landscape and setting as if you were peering out from between the trunks and branches of the trees.

Fronius in Wels, Austria by PAUAT Architects

Saturday, August 10th, 2013

Article source: PAUAT Architects

Located near the railway station in the centre of Wels, although different in function and appearance, it relates to its context in scale and volume, as well as in its position and relation to the district and street. Old and new building structures complement each other and react in shape and context in a dialogue with the urban structure. The new building adapts itself in the space restricted by the predefined structures, reacts to existing building lines and defines with the Aktiv Energy Tower a new qualified urban corner at Bahnhofstrasse.

Alvenaria Social Housing Competition Entry in Lisbon, Portugal by fala atelier

Saturday, August 10th, 2013

 Article source: fala atelier

The competition sought a new identity for the “Alvenaria” neighbourhood in Lisbon. After many years of indifference, a single intervention was required to resolve the whole site while bringing it back to the present.

The proposal did not intend to encompass all the volumes in a static solution. A module was defined, a cube of 2.55m, and the variations and multiplications allowed the dwellings to develop iteratively.

Fray León Building in Las Condes, Santiago de Chile by Jorge Figueroa + Asociados

Saturday, August 10th, 2013

Article source: Jorge Figueroa + Asociados

Fray León building is a small set of 9 apartments located in the area of San Damián, in the commune of Las Condes, in Santiago de Chile. The architectural proposal consists of breaking a body into small fragments that generate unique and identifiable volumes, without repetition and almost without modulation. We work in a way to generate identity and a sense belonging. Each apartment has its own particularity and characteristics.
