Villa Anemolia in Megalochori, Santorini, Greece by MPLUSM Architects

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

Article source: MPLUSM Architects

This renovation is in Megalochori, an introverted and quiet village in Santorini. Dealing with a preexisting house, we wanted Villa Anemolia  to reach a level of heightened simplicity. The three vaulted rooms were preserved with minimum alterations. All previous furniture was removed -we chose built-in beds, wardrobes that merge with the walls and wooden sofa beds that flank the living area.

Mieke & Sander’s house in Boutersem, Belgium by BC Architects

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

Article source: BC Architects

A renovation extension of an existing farmhouse, with a new living and kitchen area.

Client Sander and Mieke want to build their home themselves with ecologic principles and a healthy and easy construction process. Sander, a forest manager, has thorough knowledge of wood. This made us choose wood as a principle building material for their home. A timber frame structure is isolated with recycled newsprint and finished with a planking of oak that Sander chose himself from within the forest.

MODERN BARN in Wilton, Connecticut by Specht Harpman Architects

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

Article source: Specht Harpman Architects

This weekend retreat was designed for a couple who are actively engaged in the arts—he as a Broadway producer, she as a fashion editor. The architects were commissioned to reconstruct a historic gambrel hay barn which had been partially destroyed in a catastrophic fire, and to re-think the interior to become a new house for the couple and their two Labrador retrievers. The barn is one of several buildings which were once part of a working dairy farm.

Kimball Art Center in Park City by Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

Article source: Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects

Park City and the Kimball Art Center exist in an alpine landscape of great scale and beauty.  While this is a superb location, it is a daunting challenge to making a building with an iconic presence.

Rather than trying to compete with the power of this place we have chosen to capture and contain its spirit through framed openings to the mountains and the sky.  The new galleries, on the upper level, flank two outdoor rooms.  Surrounded by sheets of hammered and punctured copper – these are sky rooms – looking out to the landscape and open to the atmosphere.

Room in a room by atmos studio

The clients for this small residential jewel have an expanding family but fixed walls. Since they couldn’t expand upwards or outwards, we had to build inwards. We designed a room within a room.

Wooden Skyscraper in Stockholm, Sweden by C.F. MØlLLER Architects

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

Article source: C.F. MØlLLER Architects

For the Västerbroplan plot in the Marieberg district, Berg | C.F. Møller has drawn up plans for a 34-floor wooden apartment building. The building is designed around a wooden structure with stabilising concrete cores.

Pillars and beams will be constructed using solid and cross-laminated timber and inside the apartments floors, ceilings and window frames will be made from wood, allowing the material to also be visible from the outside through the large windows. Wood is the natural choice when it comes to materials for innovative residential development: It is an environmentally friendly and durable material which creates a comfortable and healthy indoor climate and, surprisingly enough, also constitutes a very efficient protection against fire.

Aula Medica in Solna, Sweden by Wingårdh Arkitektkontor AB

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

Article source: Wingårdh Arkitektkontor AB

Strange enough, no large auditorium was built at Karolinska Institutet when its campus was created in the 1940’s. Yes, there were intentions, but the medical university expanded in numbers as well as ranking without any possibility to assemble neither students nor scientists in large numbers. In the beginning of the new millennia, a donation finally made it possible to complete the compound with the venue it needed so long.

Blur in Bagnolet, France by CoudamyDesign

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

Article source: CoudamyDesign

Paul Coudamy has transformed a butcher shop in Bagnolet (France) into a private home. Renovating professional premises to change them into living accommodation is now a frequent occurrence in Paris and its surrounding suburbs, an exercise in architecture that requires thinking of new concepts of living, interchanging private life and public life. Blur is therefore a transparent environment made up of spaces that never totally discloses its fragile privacy. It is formed of a continuous succession of concrete and glass symbolizing a period that combines work and pleasure in a single movement.
