Wednesday, December 17th, 2014

Article source: wurm + wurm architekten

In Wenden, the southernmost town of the german region of Sauerland electro mechanical actuators for water management, the power plant sector and the oil and gas industry are manufactured.

The special cut of the new building of the Drehmo GmbH is owed the topographical situation in this region. The moving landscape caused the terracing of the landscape and produces irregularly shaped lot. The unusual floor plan, generated by this contour, and the hillside situation with a view over the valley determine the character and exceptional styling.

G U G G E N H E I M H E L S I N K I in Finland by Rafi Segal Architecture

Wednesday, December 17th, 2014

Article source: Rafi Segal Architecture 

The Urbanism of Helsinki, as much as the museum’s program, plays a defining role in shaping the new Guggenheim located in Eteläsatama.  Capturing the activity of the city’s south harbor, the project creates a series of terraces and courtyards, cut-out of the building’s mass, which extend the urban public space of the waterfront onto the higher ground of TahititorninVuori Park. The ascending movement of these terraces is echoed in the interior organization of the museum which is conceived as an architectural promenade of exhibition spaces and urban vistas. Tourists and residents, art and community meet through the new museum building and within it. The icon of cultural activity seen from a far becomes at close an urban landscape of courtyards and passages which enhances the experience of the city and its fellowship with the elements of nature.

iMovie is one of the various iRooms formats, a room with a film projector on the wall that you can manage directly from the included iPad, the soft curves of the bed structure, of the closet, and of the big Jacuzzi with view, suggested us the use of spherical lamps to emphasize the sinuosity of the shapes and of the context. The Luna pendant lamps by In-es.artdesign, perfectly adapted to our needs both for their shape and for the material used which resembles the surface of the moon. Inside the lamps we inserted RGB LED lamps that can be regulated in intensity and in color directly through iPad.

COPENHAGEN MODERN LIBRARY in Denmark by Selim Senin

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

Article source: Selim Senin

The main specialty of Danish culture is HYGGE. To reflect this cultural specialty on the project, spaces where people can spend time together, talk to each other, enjoy the scenery, make sportive activities, make presentations, and watch movies at night, etc. have been adopted. Three different routes have been planned to reach the terraces on which people can socialize. Our proposal is not merely a library to enter but a platform on which urban life keeps continuing thus a building which integrates with the city. As a response to classical repellant cognition of libraries, the building has a potential which can form an urban focus and where people would like to enjoy their day and night.

Richmond house by Newline Design

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

Article source: Newline Design

On a corner allotment with typical multiple additions, the task was to create a new family home with work, living and play areas and to facilitate art.

The addition needed to respect the location and the original structure but also had to introduce new areas, which would be far more fluid and flexible than the traditional period stock would normally allow.
