Viktoria – Multi-purpose building in Bratislava, Slovakia by Grido, architektura & design

Wednesday, September 24th, 2014

Article source: Grido, architektura & design

At some point, every project is subject to compromise. A compromise between the developer’s requirements and the site’s potential, between the architect’s idea and the construction company’s abilities. Architecture is about finding a compromise.
Multipurpose building Viktoria is located on a complicated site in Bratislava’s city center – at the frontier of two different worlds – of an active boulevard on one side and of a quiet residential area on the other.

Akatsuka House in Itabashi-ku, Japan by MDS Co.Ltd

Wednesday, September 24th, 2014

Article source: MDS Co.Ltd

A house should act as a shelter against natural environments and outside noises. But it is necessary to keep an appropriate sense of distance with the outside, instead of completely isolated from it so that one can feel the atmosphere of the nature and surrounding environments. In the same way, it is important to provide a subtle sense of distance among family members regarding privacy and communication.

Curtain Apartments in Wolli Creek, Australia by Tony Owen Partners

Wednesday, September 24th, 2014

Article source: Tony Owen Partners

The new Curtain Apartment building by Tony Owen Partners Has just been approved at Wolli Creek near Sydney Airport. The 200 apartment building is located at the waterfront and has panoramic water views of Sydney’s skyline. The Curtain also fronts onto a large park and Botany Bay. The design is unique in that all apartments face north to the view. This ensures all units have wide frontages and all rooms have balconies to take advantage of the site. In addition, almost all are ‘thru-units’ running north to south. This is achieved using open rear access corridors on the south which are accessed from external, lift towers. As a result all of the units are naturally ventilated. This minimizes energy costs making this a highly sustainable design.

Paul Bert Léon Blum Boa Canteen in Lille-Lomme, France by D’HOUNDT+BAJART Architects & Associates

Wednesday, September 24th, 2014

Article source: D’HOUNDT+BAJART Architects & Associates

A unifying and fun building:

The urban challenge was to create a frame edge structuring this corner plot whose boundaries are based on low hosted terraced buildings, at the Marx Dormoy and Léon Blum streets. At the corner, the school restaurant’s parapet ascends gently, creating a bow that hides the restaurant’s technical equipment (centralair handlingand heat pump) while freeing the ground floor. The architectural treatment is contextual in its urban form and its materiality; the use of the brick, which dominates the landscape, has received a contemporary and qualitative review showcasing the polychrome emblematic brick bondingof the regional architecture .The layout of the masonry, with an almost random pattern, evokes the snake skin and activates the imaginary potential, architecture and young children dream-like: in a world where you have to respect the rules of the urban game, the building delivers a message of imagination, and seems, with its “snake skin” and “scale-like windows” to have the power to move.
