Villa Lokaator in Paldiski, Estonia by kavakava architects

Thursday, May 2nd, 2013

Article source: kavakava architects

Situated nearby an ex-Soviet military town, which housed a nuclear submarine training base, Villa Locator deliberately advances the theme of its desolate surroundings. Starting point was an old army barrack made of calcium silicate bricks. The client’s brief was to reinterpret the surrounding military environment and keep the bulky 65-cm-thick existing walls as load bearing external walls. Renovated brick walls are visible in the interior of the house.

Library in Anzin, France by Dominique Coulon & Associés

Article source:  Dominique Coulon & Associés

The building reveals its preciousness at first sight.  Its pure, sophisticated geometry situates it as a public building.  The deliberate areas of transparency reveal its content.  The reading rooms present the building to the town in the manner of an invitation.  The multimedia library is covered with large white veils that reflect the light.

Inhabiting the volume. Converting the plane into livable volume. Embracing the space. These have been the obsessive aims of the project. My chances of purchasing my own dwelling in the most expensive city of Spain came down to 40 square meters and my knowledge of architecture.
