Bronte House by Rolf Ockert Design

Saturday, September 7th, 2013

Article source: Rolf Ockert Design

The client approached us to create house of their dreams on a site perched high over the Pacific Ocean, a home that was to make them feel like being on holiday every day. While the view was fantastic the site was very small and suffocated by overbearing neighbouring dwellings.

The finished house, though, feels generous and as if it is alone with the ocean and the sky.

Being tightly restricted by site conditions there were only two avenues we could take to create generosity of space and location:

Firstly the surprising height of the living room space that takes advantage of the only extravagant spatial dimension available to us.

Article source: MVRDV

Just before a Korean pop-song became a global success on YouTube for the first time in history, and Gangnam became world famous as the nouveau riche hangout of the South-Korean capital Seoul, MVRDV was commissioned by Woon Nam Management Ltd. to redefine a building on Gangnams chic Apgujung Road. Even though the Chungha building was completed in the 1980’s it was already outdated in a street dominated by flagship stores. The transformation, which added an extra level, was completed in just 9 months.

Arsenal B47 / transformation by Ralph Germann architectes

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

Article source: Ralph Germann architectes

The owner of the arsenal wanted to convert this former Swiss army building, constructed during the Second World War, into a habitable space.

Architect Ralph Germann’s transformation involved inserting a glass cube into the old structure, an option which meant he didn’t have to touch the patina of the walls, and was able to preserve the roof and some historic details such as the “charge maximum 1500 kg au m2”[maximum load 1500 kg/m2] sign on the wall.
