The State University of New York at New Paltz by ikon.5 architects

Friday, June 28th, 2013

Article source: ikon.5 architects

Objective

The State University of New York at New Paltz needed to expand its 1970 Student Union building by providing informal gathering spaces for students. The existing Student Union building was designed as an isolated cellular office building and did not have space for student collaboration or congregation. In addition, the University wished to change the overall appearance and presentation of the existing building which conveyed an uninspired institutionally functional appearance at the gateway to the university.

The office building is located within the heart of industrial Wola and is adjacent to the Warsaw uprising Museum. The seven storey A+ office building is state of the art and sets new standards in the design of offices. The modern glass and basalt façade is at the same time avant-garde in its expression and fits in well into the industrial surroundings.

Article source: MIRAG

The house is located in L’Ametlla del Vallès in a sloping plot.

To the east, there is a street and a group of neighbouring private houses; to the west, views to the pinewood. In this environment, the intent of the building is to turn its back to the vehicular traffic and to open itself to the surroundings.

Floating Bungalow in Topanga by Bestor Architecture

Friday, June 28th, 2013

Article source: Bestor Architecture

This house in Topanga Canyon rests on an incredible site with a view and rolling hills and meadows all around. With the site’s grade change we could separate the guest house and garage building from the main house by simply shifting the footprint downhill a bit, with the house more nestled in the hill. We created a promenade from the garage down a formal staircase and into the main view before taking a right towards the front door entry pavilion.

MULTI-FUNCTIONAL PAVILION IN VILADRAU, Spain by MIRAG

Friday, June 28th, 2013

Article source: MIRAG

The challenge on the enlargement of this therapeutic centre -‘Riera Major’, located in a privileged site in the outskirts of Viladrau, Girona- was, on the one hand, to offer an improved relation between the patient and the surrounding nature through a reinterpretation of traditional constructions of the area. And on the other hand, to study the real needs of the centre in order to offer them a moderate, affordable solution.
