THORNBURY HOUSE in Victoria, Australia by Mesh Design Projects

Friday, February 14th, 2014

Article source: Mesh Design Projects 

The home is located in Thornbury, an inner northern suburb of Victoria (Australia) which has a number of early century homes, whose aesthetic we admire. We therefore didn’t want to change the nearly 100 year old part of our house, nor the street scape but were looking for a contemporary renovation that suited our needs.Whilst we also required a basic open plan design we didn’t want to live in a large open box and wanted defined areas of functionality.

Instituut Verbeeten in Breda, Netherlands by Wiegerinck

Friday, February 14th, 2014

Article source: Wiegerinck

A radiotherapy satellite location was developed for Instituut Verbeeten next to the Amphia Hospital in Breda. The new building and its two radiation bunkers cuts traveling time for patients living on the fringes of the catchment area. A healing environment is the main design principle. Patients experience daylight at every step of their treatment. The shell around the building creates various patios in the waiting and treatment rooms. It forms a filter between the outside world and the building, creating a feeling of openness and privacy.

The King Fahad National Library, one of the most important cultural buildings in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, was completed and went into use for its intended purpose in November 2013. This project sees Professor Eckhard Gerber and his Gerber Architekten team accomplishing one of the most important urban development and cultural projects in the capital, Riyadh. The design functions as the central driving force behind a piece of urban development and rearrangement, and combines the challenge of designing within the existing building stock with respect for Arabian culture.
