Plateau Residence in California, United States by Michael Hennessey Architecture

Monday, January 28th, 2013

Article source: Michael Hennessey Architecture

This 5-acre parcel is defined by a challenging topography along with an abundance of native oak trees. The client for this single-family residence requested a direct connection between the interior spaces and the surrounding landscape. The resultant strategy was to place all of the living/sleeping/working areas into a single main level to maximize the immediate relationship to the land. The massing of the building is seen as a respectful addition to the existing topography.

The design of the new student housing for the University of Southern Denmark in Odense is based on a strong community spirit. The 250 student residences are located in three interconnected 14-storey buildings. This means that the residence has no front or back, but appears attractive from a 360-degree perspective. The building’s distinctive shape will make it easily recognizable on the campus, and clearly advertises its distinct residential content.

Book Mountain + Library Quarter in Spijkenisse, Netherlands by MVRDV

Sunday, January 27th, 2013

Article source: MVRDV

The library is designed as an advert for reading, its visible presence and invitation holding great significance for a community with 10 percent illiteracy. From underneath the glass dome the library is visible from all sides, especially from the adjacent market square where the library appears as one big book mountain. Underneath its monumental glass envelope damage to the books by sunlight is off-set by their normal 4 year life-span due to wear and tear from borrowing.
