Luca Beghini Restaurant in Sommacampagna, Italy by Filippo Bricolo

Article source: Filippo Bricolo

The project involved the renovation of an existing restaurant in Sommacampagna, a town located on the moraine hills between Lake Garda and Verona. The restaurant, opened in 2013, is characterized by a few simple elements: the use of poor materials such as wood and iron, the division into different spatial units with architectural volumes with a strong identity, the use of black color, the careful study of light.

Klippan House in Hampstead, London by Belsize Architects

Article source: Belsize Architects

The house, a grade 2 listed building, set opposite Hampstead Heath was designed by Ewen Christian, an RIBA president and Gold medalist, and built in 1881. The brief was to return the 900 sqm four storey building, previously divided into four flats, into a single-family home and to add a new subterranean swimming pool to the side of the house and a garage for 3 cars over the pool.

Snailtower in Tartu, Estonia by Künnapu & Padrik Architects

Sunday, June 2nd, 2013

Article source: Künnapu & Padrik Architects

The building consists of a 23-storey vertical block with flats and some offices, and of a horizontal parking house on four levels. On the north-east side, the building is bordered by a road and by the River Emajõgi, and on the south-west, by the Science Centre Ahhaa. The ground plan of the tower is a spiral. Thus a symbolic building emerged, where the spiral is expressed in the sculptural form of the upper part of the tower. This spiral sculpture contains the idea of the entire project.

Science Centre AHHAA in Tartu, Estonia by Künnapu & Padrik Architects

Sunday, June 2nd, 2013

Article source: Künnapu & Padrik Architects

The Science Centre forms a joint whole with the earlier Tigutorn (Snail Tower). The idea of Tigutorn’s design was a cosmic spiral, whereas the Science Centre rests on the shape of Vesica Piscis, known in sacred geometry, which has been hidden in the design’s main image. The Centre constitutes the roots of the spiral tower. The cupola, half-cupola, globe and box together produce a constructivist composition, where the connecting elements are vertical communication shafts and horizontal spans, which can be observed both inside and outside.
