Diffuse interaction. Imminent interest. Light

An athletics stadium. A municipal sports center. A plot. Two levels. A problem. An opportunity.

As part of the remodeling and enlarging works on Fernando Hierro municipal sports facilities, the Town Hall commissioned us to design a storage building in a residual plot located inside the premises.

Winsomere Cres in Westmere, Auckland, New Zealand by Dorrington Architects & Associates

Sunday, September 29th, 2013

Article source: Dorrington Architects & Associates

A contempory home incorporates the charming but time-worn house, and capitalises on the stunning views on offer.

The original house on this waterfront site was a double-skin brick bungalow with warren-like rooms and little connection with the foreshore. The clients liked the traditional detailing of the existing house but wanted to maximise the aspect and views.

The Barn in Tyrol, Austria by Mark Neuner & Mostlikely Architecture

Friday, September 27th, 2013

Article source: Mark Neuner & Mostlikely Architecture

Staged Authenticity.
To build a one family house in the region of Kitzbühel architect Mark Neuner and the team of mostlikely took a better part of the design process as a research quest on how to build in a contemporary way without neglecting the historic traditions. Questions with great significance in an area where tradition not only weighs heavily on old houses but hardly any new houses that are more daring are to be found at all. This coherent architectural landscape allows for a romantic identity as well as regional authenticity and serves as the layer stone of the tourism industry in this area. To respect and preserve the substance of the idyllic mountain village Going am Wilden Kaiser (the name of the mountain which literally translates to “Wild Emperor”) mostlikely chose to stage the well-known and proven in a new way.
