Slow Food Nation by Jensen Architects

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

Article source: Jensen Architects

The Welcome Pavilion provides space for ticketing, information and membership services at the inaugural Slow Food Nation event. The reclaimed shipping container, topped with plants and a windmill, creates an iconic image while providing the introductory public interface for the festival. Part billboard, part box-office, and part way-finding beacon, the pavilion announces the Slow Food movement’s dedication to sustainability and social responsibility.

House in Milan, New York by Rangr Studio with Charlet Design

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

Article source: Rangr Studio with Charlet Design 

After years of renting a weekend house in the area, our clients found land they loved and asked us to design a weekend and summer home. The clients were particularly fond of one of their previous rentals — a chicken coop turned into a small house — and that became a departure point for our design. Within a strict budget, the design took advantage of a steep slope in the hillside, using the foundation as a retaining wall on the high point of the hill and opening up the lower story with doors and windows. The house looks small and humble from the street side, with a mostly opaque wall creating privacy, but opens up to a deck and stone terrace, the facade punctured with windows looking to the Catskill Mountains.

Medialab-Prado in Madrid, Spain by Langarita-Navarro Arquitectos

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

Article source: María Langarita and Víctor Navarro

Perhaps more than anything else, it is the very strangeness of the diverging intentions found in the La Serrería Belga adaptation project for the Medialab-Prado that makes it possible for them to coexist, though not without a certain measure of irony.

The first of these caustic coexistences stems from a certain institutional schizophrenia. While the ‘Paseo del Arte’ was transformed into Madrid City Hall’s banner to attract international tourism, an architectural competition was simultaneously promoted in the same area, which would end up serving an institution that sponsored debates that were deeply critical of this model.

CHAMELEON HOUSE in Czech Republic, Europe by Petr Hajek Architekti

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

Article source: Petr Hajek Architekti 

The house is located in the centre of a garden. Each single room is oriented to one of the  trees. The living room faces the apple tree, the master bedroom, the cherry tree, the bathroom faces the peach tree, the guest room, the silver spruce and the children’s room,  the walnut.  Each room has its unique view and atmosphere.  The building is resting like a lizard in a sun-lit meadow. The inspiration for the proposal of this house is in fact a chameleon. Eyes (windows) unrestrictedly observe the surroundings. The skin (facade), consisting of a semi-gloss coat, partly reflects the colours of the garden and the sky.

Travel opens up new perspectives, to see life with new eyes.

This Hotel invites travellers to stop wandering, and make a fruitful pause. Life, dispersed in Atacama’s vastness, is somehow present at the hotel, inviting visitors to go out and experience first hand its natural and cultural riches, and return every evening back to comfort, free of the sheer tasks of survival.
