La Valentina Station in Sacramento, California by David Baker + Partners Architects

Friday, January 18th, 2013

Article source: David Baker + Partners Architects

For more than two decades, a high-crime light-rail station stopping at a toxic empty lot; now, a sustainable affordable family housing development and new gateway to downtown.

La Valentina Station brings 63-units of affordable rental housing for families to a previously desolate city site. The development bolsters the local sewer, electrical and storm-water infrastructure and brings compact, transit-oriented homes to the neglected area.

Apartment in Duque de Alba, Madrid by Beriot, Bernardini Arquitectos

Friday, January 18th, 2013

Article source: Beriot, Bernardini Arquitectos

The Project transforms a small, 28sq-m office in the historic centre of Madrid into a private apartment.

The basic aim of the project was to provide, despite the small surface available, all the necessary elements for a comfortable everyday use, avoiding shared-use solutions such as convertible bed-sofas, usual in these projects but fastidious due to their necessary daily transformation.

Low Energy Timber House in Tielt-Winge, Belgium by AST 77 Architecten

Friday, January 18th, 2013

Article source: AST 77 Architecten

Concept and Vision

Peter Van Impe, the architect of this modern/contemporary private residence was faced with a challenge. The daughter of a besides lying ancestral home dating from the 60’s, wanted to built a residence for herself and her three sons. Building regulations dictated a minimum of 3 meters distance from the property boundary on the west side, while on the east side the house would have to be linked to the adjacent parental home in the future. The (basic) concept consists of an elongated rectangular volume that is enveloped by an L-shaped volume. The rectangular volume encloses all communal spaces of the house, such as the living room, kitchen and lounge area, where large windows provide the room with plenty of natural light. The L-shaped volume in grey contains the bathrooms and bedrooms. The four individual bedrooms are conceived as little cocoons that open onto the living room.

The Place

This was our first project in Costa Esmeralda, a real estate development neighbor to Pinamar started in 2004. As a recent batching, at the moment there are very few constructions and the place is known for having different types of landscapes, with vegetation varying from pine forests, with similar characteristics to the forest of Mar Azul, to areas where that vegetation is scarce.

Galaxy Soho in Beijing, China by Zaha Hadid

Thursday, January 17th, 2013

Article source: Zaha Hadid

The Galaxy SOHO project in central Beijing for SOHO China is a 330 000m2 office, retail and entertainment complex that will become an integral part of the living city, inspired by the grand scale of Beijing. Its architecture is a composition of four continuous, flowing volumes that are set apart, fused or linked by stretched bridges. These volumes adapt to each other in all directions, generating a panoramic architecture without corners or abrupt transitions that break the fluidity of its formal composition.

Huisjeshuis in Breda, Netherlands by studio NL-D

Thursday, January 17th, 2013

Article source: studio NL-D

Huisjeshuis as new type catalogue housing

The huisjeshuis is a single family house developed as an alternative for the rather boring and limited but relatively cheap catalogue housing. It exists out of a collection of standard shelters with an insulated hall system as a basis. The chosen hall system works in a very advantageous way if you compare the price per cubic metres to those of a standard house.
