Villa B in Blankenheim, Germany by Schneider+Schumacher

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Article source: Schneider+Schumacher

In 2010, an architectural and landscape limited competition was launched by the municipality of Blankenheim, together with the Regionale 2010 Agentur. It resulted in schneider+schumacher winning first prize with their finely judged answer to the competition brief. This asked for suggestions as to how the former Roman manor – the Villa Rustica – might once again be made visible to the public. Taking up this challenge as their point of departure, the architects have now enhanced the Eifel region with a decidedly sculptural, walk-in installation.

Casa N/S in Bergamo, Italy by dep studio – architettura e design

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Article source: dep studio – architettura e design

Casa N/S lies in the immediate vicinity of the old town of a village in the province of Bergamo. The plot is located in an area characterized by buildings without any great architectonic value, something that has made the architects decide to distinguish the building from its surroundings. The customer’s desire to build a home to leave to his children in the future has led to the realization of a building with two identical and independent units that share a number of facilities, as the tavern, the cellars, the garage and the garden.

Casa FP in Zapopan, Jalisco by TaAG Arquitectura

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Article source: TaAG Arquitectura

The project is developed in a splendid land of 800 m2 with a small gap in a heavily wooded area of Zapopan. The project is solved in two parallel parts to the side and back easements to release most of the land for a terrace and a large garden on which the views of the house are mixed. Taking advantage of the natural slope of the land a half-basement is proposed for the large garage requested for the client.

Barn Studio in Orient, New York by studio a/b architects

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013

Article source: studio a/b architects

In a historic waterfront village on the North Folk of Long Island, this six-stall barn/garage sits on a property line facing an alley. A shed stands behind the barn. The rustic appearance of the two buildings, standing side-by-side, is part of the character of the village. Adopting the appearance as they sit together, the design inserts two box-spaces, a “Semi-enclosed patio” and a “Boxed Light”.

Interior Renovation of Restaurant – Porto II in Portugal by Miguel Nery Arquitectura

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

Article source: Miguel Nery Arquitectura

The project brief involved a restaurant, that was once considered a point of reference in the city, occupying a plot measuring 5×60 meters, a minimal budget and the customer’s wish for it to be able to function with ease throughout its long daily opening period (8 a.m. to midnight). The proposed solution attempts to take advantage of the full potential of the existing space (both interior and exterior), thereby reducing the work to a minimum.

B+L HQ in Warsaw, Poland by 137kilo Architekci

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

Article source: 137kilo Architekci

The project is the Poland headquarters of a large pharmaceutical corporation. The client wanted the office space to highlight the company’s scientific heritage while providing a high quality working environment for its employees. Research labs and contact lenses – the client’s main product – served as our inspiration. White exposed ceilings combined with glass surfaces combine to create a light and transparent space. This seemingly sterile aesthetic is balanced by green walls along the space’s main visual axes and functional solutions which encourage teamwork and relaxation.

LaM – Lille Museum of Modern, Contemporary and Outsider Art in Villeneuve d’Ascq, France by Manuelle Gautrand Architecture

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

Article source: Manuelle Gautrand Architecture

The project concerns the refurbishment and the extension of the Lille Modern Art Museum in a magnificent park at Villeneuve d’Ascq. The existing building, designed by Roland Simounet in 1983, is already on the Historic monuments list. The project aims at building up the museum as a continuous and fluid entity, this by adding new galleries dedicated to a collection of Art Brut works, from a travelling movement that extrapolates existing spaces. A complete refurbishment of the existing building was next required, some parts were very worn.
