Sheet Lightning in the Technical University’s Main Building.

The Baupiloten construct a new cafeteria full of mood- and weather-dependent lighting.

The Baupiloten have constructed a new cafeteria within the framework of a new master plan for the remodeling of the TU Berlin’s main building. The cafeteria connects two courtyards located within the listed 19th century building and provides them with a new function. The cafeteria’s distinctive luminous ceiling is already visible from the university’s foyer and through the windows of the inner courtyards.

MERCEDES HOUSE IN GARDEN CITY, A CORUÑA, Spain by CREUSeCARRASCOarquitectos

Thursday, June 26th, 2014

Article source: CREUSeCARRASCOarquitectos

The plot, like all those of the same alignment, has the particularity of being limited at the back by another much higher level which situates the dwellings on the base of a high floor through which the access occurs. With its front facing north, the solution of the housing is also conditioned by the two lateral setbacks that fix the plan and by the minimum width dimensions of the plot. The interior layout is organized into two areas that occupy the northern and southern extremities of the construction; between them appear the elements of communication and a patio facing the interior space through large panes of glass.

Bella Donna in Amstelveen, Netherlands by Benthem Crouwel Architects

Thursday, June 26th, 2014

Article source: Benthem Crouwel Architects

In the old part of Amstelveen, stemming from the thirties, an office building and a pavilion together form the Bella Donna. The original buildings were designed in the sixties by the architect Webbers. They are situated on an island, surrounded by greenery and water and reachable via a bridge. The client was looking for a new office for his organization, when he came across the Bella Donna. Charmed by the green park-like setting he decided to settle in the pavilion, while the main building was re-designed to rent to others. This major renovation and expansion was the starting point to create a high-quality office near the Stadshart Amstelveen. The Bella Donna now has an exclusive look at a clearing in a woody area.

Hideout house in Resko, Poland by mjaworskidesign

Thursday, June 26th, 2014

Article source: mjaworskidesign

Hideout house is a mixture of Richard Alan Meier’s white architecture, Robert Konieczny’s autofamilly house and kaufman’s house widely known as fallingwater by Frank Loyd Wright.

Dobrzyca is a middle-sized lake found near Resko. On the one side of the lake, we can find a small village where tourists come visit during summer, and on the other side there is a forest near which a national park is placed, which has a perfect ecosystem for sundew flowers.

Firestone Pavilion in Longmeadow, Massachusetts by Newick Architects

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

Article source: Newick Architects

The site for this project is an existing 1960’s modern house with a 1980’s complementary addition. The Pool existed at the outset as well.

We were asked to design a new pool enclosure fence and Car Port that would be more consistent  with the architecture of the house than the English trellis and dovecotes that  existed when we began. All of this pre-dated the current owner.
