Funeral Chapel in Turin, Italy by Raimondo Guidacci

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

Article source: Raimondo Guidacci

Planning a funeral chapel means designing a building with a strong symbolic value means dealing not only with the place where it will be placed, but especially with spiritual values. Planning a funeral chapel, is how to design a small monument, a small church. In the design of the chapel to St. George Canavese, all this adds another element represented by the fact that it was to renovate a chapel trying to preserve the existing profile.

Designed as a chapel in memoriam of companions of Dr. Heinrich Klier and situated directly on a ridge in the Schaufeljoch region, this raw concrete and steel building displays the elements of a chapel reduced to its classical shape and thus creates a space of calm, contemplation  and remembrance in the midst of a lively ski circuit.

Flip House Wisconsin in San Francisco by Fourgeron Architecture

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

Article source: Fourgeron Architecture

Like many San Francisco homes, this one poorly integrated its many levels with each other and with its sloping topography and solar orientation. Reversing its reading, we recast the back of the house as its primary façade with a faceted, custom-built glass wall. Divided into three vertical panels that push in and out, this dynamic prism brings animating light and spectacular views to the communal living spaces, now placed at the rear. Bedrooms were flipped to the front.
