Cafe&Dining KAZE in Yokosuka, Japan by tai_tai STUDIO

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

Article source: tai_tai STUDIO

This cafe was built on the seafront facing the entrance of Tokyo Bay at the tip of the peninsula Yokosuka.

Wooden counter table length 6.3m in cafes is placed under the continuous windows of the sea side. You can drink coffee while watching the ocean in front. We’ve considered the height of the floor as the sea looks good from this counter. Our first design about this cafe was to determine the height of the floor And we considered the effective evacuation route for the tsunami when the earthquake.

ANTOINE in Verbier, Switzerland by BUREAU A

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

Article source: BUREAU A

The mountains have the power to call for feelings of fascination and fear at the same time. Switzerland has a strong tradition of observing the Alps, living with them, hiding inside them. The awe and the anxiety that this monumental landscape appeals is reflected in the writings of Charles-Ferdinand Ramuz, one of the most important Swiss writers. His novels, Derborence, describes the massive rock fall that covered the pastures of the valley of Lizerne in 1714. Antoine, the main character, survives seven weeks under the rocks before he manages to reach his village, and life.

TWO HOUSES CONDE in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Hitzig Militello arquitectos (HMA)

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

Connections

From the beginning this project had to respond to two different voices, or two clients. Both required the same amount of square meters for their future homes. It is perhaps the greatest achievement of this project, having understood how to complete the entire buildable volume equally for both owners, and without losing the ability to have access to almost all of the terrain. The strategy chosen was to cross-distribute the meters that corresponded to each owner, so that both units rotate through the central axis of the patio in a centrifugal manner. To achieve the crossed connection of the two properties without wasting useful meters, we took the decision to “externalize” the stairs, like sleeve-bridges connecting both units.

New Calais conference centre in France by Arte Charpentier Architectes

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

Article source: v2com

Arte Charpentier, the lead architect, will design the new Centre de Congrès et de Spectacles de Calais, in partnership with Abciss-Architectes, as part of a consortium led by the Rabot Dutilleul Group.

Arte Charpentier Architectes presented an ambitious plan for the major cultural facility, to be located on an 18,000 sqm oceanfront site. Featuring rounded contours, it is designed to make the most of the site’s exceptional views: the port to the east; the sea and spa district to the north; and to the south, the city and its historic monuments such as the Risban fort, lighthouse, watchtower and City Hall. The conference and performing arts centre is a strong iconic structure that will focus perspective, giving it more power without concealing the sea view and providing instant appeal to the waterfront.

CHÂTEAU DE RENTILLY-FRAC Ile-de in Bussy Saint Martin, France by Bona-Lemercier

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

Article source: Bona-Lemercier

Rebuilt after the last war in a style reflecting the local Ile de France architecture, though on a much smaller scale than the original, the Château de Rentilly lost its historical value and its significant relationship with its remarkable location. This project has sought to restore both aspects by encasing the building in a second skin of pleated, mirror polished stainless steel which reflects and diffracts the image of the park, acting as a kind of sound box. The interior has been stripped down and simultaneously opened up on both opposite sides, one to the jardin à la française, the other to the english landscape park, emphasising the concept of immersion in the natural world.

PRIMARY SCHOOL FOR SCIENCES AND BIODIVERSITY in Boulogne-Billancourt, France by chartier dalix

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

Article source: chartier dalix

A primary school and gymnasium with their own natural environment.
The project has been designed as part of a particularly innovative programme, environmentally speaking. The concept of the building relies on the development of a primary landscape which would draw its textures and components from the wider landscape in which it is set. In this way it becomes an urban enclave which stands apart: an elevated landscape in which an indigenous environment grows freely, a sort of urban canopy, sheltered, but also protected by people.

Sparrenburg visitor centre in Bielefeld, Germany by Max Dudler

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

Article source: Max Dudler

Architect Max Dudler has designed a new visitor centre for the medieval Sparrenburg fortress in Bielefeld. The new building was opened on 17 September 2014 after a one-year planning and construction period. An info point for the nearby Johannisberg garden and park will follow at the end of the year, also based on plans by Max Dudler who won the 2013 competition for the realisation of both projects. The visitor centre has created a new spatial frame for the historical bailey. The material and expression represent a contemporary update of fortress architecture.

ZOOTOPIA in Givskud, Denmark by BIG

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

Article source: BIG

Architects’ greatest and most important task is to design man-made ecosystems – to ensure that our cities and buildings suit the way we want to live. We must make sure that our cities offer a generous framework for different people – from different backgrounds, economy, gender, culture, education and age – so they can live together in harmony while taking into account individual needs as well as the common good. Nowhere is this challenge more acrimonious than in a zoo. It is our dream – with Givskud – to create the best possible and freest possible environment for the animals’ lives and relationships with each other and visitors.
