Apartments BUSO in Mechelen, Belgium by dmvA Architecten

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

Urban concept

The project was obtained by winning a competition called by the City of Mechelen.

The city council aimed the old Buso site to be developed as a high quality urban area, housing ten loft dwellings. The commission was entrusted to dmvA because they were the only architect office that took the ‘spirit of the factory’ as starting-point.

Barrow House in Melbourne, Australia by Andrew Maynard Architects

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

Article source: Andrew Maynard Architects

The Barrow extension appears as an arrangement of timber boxes, each independently rotated and subjected to varying amounts of extruding and manipulating forces.

These separate actions result in a variety of shapes, which united, create an interior of differing volumes and organizations, providing an interesting double story addition to this weatherboard house.

Aqaba Hotel in Jordan by Accent Design Group

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

Article source: Accent Design Group

Due to the small size of the land and the lack of landscape, the main concept in this project is to introduce a fifth façade that would act as a green area. From the existing grid structure and the basic volume that result from it, vertical and horizontal shiftings are operated in order to create a roof terracing. The terraces are landscaped to provide green areas, both private for the suites and public for the common spaces of the hotel. Cantilevers and openings are created toward the surrounding views.
