HOUSE ON A WAREHOUSE in Torres Novas, Portugal by Miguel Marcelino

Thursday, September 26th, 2013

Article source: Miguel Marcelino

The briefing was to build a three-bedroom house on top of a warehouse built in the 80’s, where part of the roof was made with a flat slab and a small balcony, precisely with that idea of later building the house.

Given the constraints of the existing warehouse, the house shape turns out to be automatically set: a box that rests on the existing structure.

The concept of this house was born by very clear requests from customers. The principal were trying to keep and cherish as much green space and use low maintenance materials. It was a very rewarding process that turned into a special feeling called Space and Matter.

ALPL in Austria by Smertnik Kraut Architekten

Thursday, September 26th, 2013

Article source: Smertnik Kraut Architekten

The estate and the farmhouse with adjacent forest have been in the family’s property for a long time before the decision was made to construct a summer residence. The actual residential building of the farm was too small by the size for the family. The barn in the close proximity was therefor large enough.

The Hotel in SKOLKOVO Moscow School of Management is a part of a huge 80 000 sq m campus situated in the village Skolkovo near Moscow.

The compositional and stylistic design of the Hotel interior is a logical continuation of the entire architectural appearance of the Complex.

Sports complex in Châtenay-Malabry, France by agence Engasser & associés

Thursday, September 26th, 2013

Article source: agence Engasser & associés

Located at the heart of the ‘Butte Rouge’ garden city in the Paris suburb of Châtenay-Malabry, the Léonard de Vinci sports complex houses a multipurpose sports hall, a dojo and annexes.

The project can be divided into two main sections:

  •  The base of the building which emerges from the park. The low height of the base is in keeping with the existing buildings and forms an extension of the greenery that runs from the garden-city through to the green roof;
  •  A ‘wooden lantern’, which forms the bulk of the sports hall and sits on top of the large green roof.
