This third winery of the Plumpjack group is expected to produce elegant and feminine wines, which they sought to reflect in the architecture. The side view of the facility evokes the sweeping curve of a swan’s wing, inspired by the Tchaikovsky ballet character Odette.

THE LEGEND OF TENT by 10AM Architecture

The new hotel style
Primitive humans were using caves, dark and not comfortable places, but there they could find shelter from the cold and from the wild animals. In the civilization ages they invented the tent, real light and easy transportable shelter, so they could move whenever they want. The tent was also not so comfortable, so over the years, humans started to have sedentary lifestyle. They built their stone and brick houses, which were very comfortable, but they lost their ability to move and to be free. Human population increased and had less and less space for their houses; that’s why they invented at first blocks and then skyscrapers, they were trying to gain space in height, until their homes reach the sky.

This is the current!
… and tomorrow?

Article source: a154 

THE ASSIGNMENT
The construction of student housing and redevelopment of a protected interbellum period building in order to create a hostel.

THE LOCATION
The construction site is located in the heart of Ghent’s student neighborhood. The area is demarcated by rear facades and the gardens belonging to surrounding buildings. The only access to this inner area is along the street called ‘Sint Pietersnieuwstraat’. This entrance is characterized, in particular, by the office building ‘Het Licht’ (the light), erected in 1930, drawn by architects Fernand and Maxime Brunfaut. An 18th century building stands next to this light-giving city beacon and it too needs to be preserved and restored.

Trojan Egg in Swiss, Switzerland by Camilo Rebelo

Wednesday, December 24th, 2014

Article source:  Camilo Rebelo 

OVO[i] project was a challenge of a deeply restless client, which proposed the construction of a space to install one sculpture from Rui Chafes – Semente[ii]. This room is in the basement of his home in Fideris, located in the Swiss Alps.

This ‘Trojan Egg’ is the first stage of the project OVO. The purpose of this wooden Egg is to create a void, to unveil a new dimension and through it potentiate mystery. Mystery is a condition that is very close to disappear from our civilization. This value is for us one of the main reasons of life, and therefore the Egg is the dimension we choose to express it.
