The “Ganghofersiedlung” was built under the National Socialists as “Siedlung Göring-Heim” for the members of the “Messerschmidtwerke” into the 1930 years. The strongly rehabilitation needy settlement houses are under ensemble and protection of historical monuments. To leave the existing house still free, the architect built an transparent and structural supporting glasstransit. Just like a bridge between existing house and new bulidling.

Scope in Shizuoka, Japan by mA-style architects

Article source: mA-style architects

A big pipe sticks out from the valley. It totally focuses like a telescope while looking around the opening scenery. Makinohara plateau that lined with a tea plantation and houses along a gentle slope spreads out here. Here is nice and full of nature. I felt that it is necessary for client who has lived long there to find the way of building which could realize charm of this land again.

Can Font Cultural Center in Barcelona, Spain by Taller 9s Arquitectes

Wednesday, February 13th, 2013

Article source: Taller 9s Arquitectes

Can Font is a “Masia”, an architectural traditional catalan typology that represents the important rural heritage of the village of Les Franqueses, sited near Barcelona. Some years ago it was an isolated building, surrounded by fields of cultures, but nowadays it is placed in the middle of an urbanized area, remaining ‘corseted’ between new buildings. The new planning for the area that abolished the open space existing in front of the main facade, converted the lateral façade facing the new square, without architectonical interest, as main facade.

A work live studio was first set up as an architect’s office for himself in 2005 when Daniel Fügenschuh converted a townhouse from 1914 in Innsbruck. Over the years the office space became too small and he decided to expand his office by placing a new built office in the underground of the townhouses’ garden. After completion the garden was laid on top again.
