C-house in Cleveland, Ohio by Robert Maschke Architects

Sunday, February 2nd, 2014

Article source: Robert Maschke Architects

C-House is one of three urban villas comprising the Residences of King’s Hill, a unique residential development located on Cleveland’s near west side. Despite being situated within the urban context of the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood, this “virgin” site provides an idyllic enclave within a park-like setting, adjacent to the site’s eastern and southern boundaries. Uninterrupted views of Lake Erie, Cleveland’s downtown and industrial flats, as well as the site’s proximity to a busy vehicular thoroughfare reconnect the site to its urban environment.

OPEN Prototype for Temporary Sales Pavilion in Beijing, China by OPEN Architecture

Sunday, February 2nd, 2014

Article source: OPEN Architecture

As a unique Chinese architectural typology in recent years, sales pavilion reflects rather interesting phenomena. A sales pavilion will surely be built before the sales of almost every housing project in China. Extravaganzas as these pavilion buildings often are, in terms of form and décor, they normally bare almost no relationship to the actual housing marketed and sold inside. This building typology has been a beloved experimental field for elite architects practicing in China, offering much design and budget freedom that most other types of buildings do not enjoy. However, temporary buildings as they were born to be, these costly pavilions are often demolished shortly after the sales were completed, and in some lucky cases, converted to other functions.

G HOUSE in Como, Italy by Lorenzo Guzzini

Sunday, February 2nd, 2014

Article source: Lorenzo Guzzini 

The idea of the project is to value an abandoned villa from 19th century in Como, through an architectural re-elaboration of the owners’ s memories.

The family that live into this house is from a central region of Italy, Marche and they used to live among the medieval villages made in bricks. For them construction means matter, bulk and static.

SUNLIGHTHOUSE in Pressbaum, Austria by juri troy architects

Sunday, February 2nd, 2014

Article source: juri troy architects

The Velux Sunlighthouse in Pressbaum near Vienna is the first co²-neutral single-family-house in Austria.

The challenge was to create a house that taps the full potential of the plot on the one hand and to develop an energy and ecology concept that would erase the ecological footprint of the house within the next thirty years on the other hand. What distinguishes this project from many ambitious preceding projects is the aim to combine minimized numerical values for energy efficiency with ambitious architecture in spite of an all but ideal plot.

Kangju Community Center in Kunshan, China by Pu Miao Architecture

Sunday, February 2nd, 2014

Article source: Pu Miao Architecture

With modern buildings increasingly being designed as one large and centralized mass, this design revisited the decentralized model. Catering for senior residents living in the apartments around the park, the community center has a porous exterior appearance which resembles a forest that attracts people to enter.

1/2 Stadium in Shijingshan district, Beijing by Interval Architects

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

Article source: Interval Architects

The project calls for an intervention of the existing sport ground in a public school of Beijing.  We define the project as a 1/2 stadium because the scale, size, formal expression and use of the architecture stand in between an official stadium and a blank sport field.
