Veracruz Architects Association Headquarters in Córdoba, México by TEAM730

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

Article source: TEAM730 

Located in Cordoda’s downtown area, the second prize winning design for the Veracruz Architects Association’s new headquarters takes advantage of the existing topography. Designed by TEAM730, one of the main features of the project is to break the scheme of close institutional buildings to its immediate context, to become a built space that opens to the city, creating public space between the building and the urban grid.

CPS – Chiarano Primary School in Urban by C+S architects

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

Article source: C+S architects

As architects and scholars, we recognize a political role in the urban realm for these small public spaces, where design is not aimed to produce objects standing independently, such as it happened with the cathedrals of consumerism (the shopping malls) or the cathedrals of culture (museums) which, despite their most private ownership, are considered the new public arenas of the society.

Redline (Construction of 59 housing units) in La Seyne-sur-Mer, France by Pietri Architectes

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

Article source: Pietri Architectes

The obsession to always be able to see the sea from where we live on the coast guides our pens from the first sketches and never fails to inspire another way of building. As such the Redline plot could not have tolerated a single, solid block, which would have obstructed the views of the surrounding housing and prevented half of the 59 housing units from having a view of the sea. Using this site survey as a starting point, and setting our sights on the north where the Bay of Toulon is curled up, a building that splits in two along a patio running from east to west was drawn.

SINGLE FAMILY HOUSE Habrovice in Ústí nad Labem, Czech Republic by 3+1 architekti

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

Article source: 3+1 architekti

Agricultural village spread around a municipal road. Original strong and confident establishment as well as neighboring generous farm houses are gone. Nearby natural swimming pool (widely used not long time ago) has been devastated (also due to lack of interest of local authorities). That is an unsettling image of the contemporary outside. Uncertainty, treading water… Now what?

House in Ohno, Japan by Airhouse Design Office

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

Article source: Airhouse Design Office

A piece of land in a Japanese persimmon (kaki) orchard was offered as the project area for a residential house. As the client wanted wide open spaces with high ceilings, a structure composed of a large roof set on top of seven thick columns was used. To secure copious glass windows, private areas are located inside the columns while intervals between columns are designated as living, dining and kitchen spaces. With this composition, only the sky and the kaki orchard are visible from the inside, giving the area an open feeling while the kaki trees provide a sense of privacy from the outside world, all of which makes for a relaxed atmosphere in the interior areas. As the landscape transforms with the changing of the kaki seasons, a generous living space is produced in the house nestled among the kaki trees.

Frog Queen in Steiermark, Austria by SPLITTERWERK

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

Article source: SPLITTERWERK

The Graz-based design collective SPLITTERWERK was commissioned to design this headquarters building for PRISMA Engineering, a machine and motor technology company also located in Graz. The objective was to design a structure which could house the company’s various research and development programs, and selectively showcase the work to a varied range of often competing clientele. Thus the building design needed to accommodate both high-end testing and presentation without jeopardizing the security and secrecy with which the work is developed.
