A Modern Boathouse in Ontario, Canada by Weiss Architecture & Urbanism Limited

Friday, February 20th, 2015

Article source: v2com

Located on one of the many islands dotting The Archipelago in Georgian Bay, Ontario, this private boathouse and docking facility designed by Kevin Weiss of Weiss Architecture & Urbanism Limited exemplifies a quiet and precise modernism. Through careful form-making and the use of rustic materials, the project responds gently both to the natural and cultural context of the area, where historically built-form yields to the power of the landscape with its exposed and glacially carved granite and wind swept jack pines.

Renovation and reconstruction of former club Valencia in Copenhagen, Denmark by Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter A/S

Friday, February 20th, 2015

Article source: Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter A/S

The original dance pavilion Valencia was built in 1861 and designed by H.S. Stilling and is a building with a long history in the Copenhagen entertainments. It has witnessed the rapid growth of the neighborhood as the Copenhagen Rampartswere released in late 1800, and has at first-hand felt the city’s explosive growth as the detached dance pavilion in 1889 , was enclosed by the buildings around them. Before the thorough renovation the hall stood unnoticed, and the aim was to bring Valencia back in to the consciousness of the Copenhagen residents.

HOUSE FOR A VIOLINIST in MÁLAGA, SPAIN by OAM arquitectos

Friday, February 20th, 2015

Article source: OAM arquitectos

With just one bow movement, a violin virtuoso is able to produce a sixty seconds continuous sound. In this lapse of time, the musical note flows constantly without sound alterations. The notes will be tied together by means of the legato which indicates that musical notes are played or sung smoothly and connected with no interruptions at all.

Conversion of Doxiadis Office Building-ATI to Apartment Building in Athens, Greece by Divercity

Friday, February 20th, 2015

Article source: Divercity

An icon of Greek post-war modern architecture, the Doxiadis building, having decayed during the last 20 years, finally came back to life through its conversion into a residential building. This conversion raises crucial questions about the notions of memory, preservation, integration into natural and built environments and innovation inspired by the potential of existing spaces.

Juliette aux combles by L. McComber ltée

Friday, February 20th, 2015

Article source: L. McComber ltée 

Juliette aux combles – Transforming an attic into a bookcase – “Nothing is lost, nothing is created, everything is transformed.”

Subtraction
In approaching this project, we studied the composition of the existing building and identified multiple layers added to one another over time. These additions had compressed the living space since the original construction dating back to 1880. Inside the attic, we found that the current flat roof was built on top of a former sloped roof togetherreaching a thickness of over five feet which was mixed in with layers of tar. Through a subtraction process and by replacing the existing structure with new joists, we gained 5 feet of space, therefore making up a 13 foot height on the third floor. The space of the new master bedroom and artist studio gained in natural light with the integration of a ribbon window where the attic was.

Forest Hill Villa in Buda Hills, Hungary by Architema Ltd

Friday, February 20th, 2015

Article source: Architema Ltd

The elitist school of Bauhaus marked by the name of Mies van de Rohe appeared in Hungary at the end of the 1930s.  The emerging intellectuals of the era were sensitive to the values represented by Mies. Unfortunately, World War II and the following political changes did not favor this particular architectural style characterized by industrial aesthetics and eventually it disappeared from Eastern Europe.

house#03 in Vigevano, Italy by andrea rubini architect

Friday, February 20th, 2015

Article source: andrea rubini architect

Project house#03 is the result of a renovated 80 square meter apartment owned by a newly retired couple in Vigevano.
The house, built in the late ’80s under a project of affordable housing, has minimal spaces and no characteristic features. For this reason, the project includes a search for few higher quality materials and the redefinition of the living room to create a more generous space.

Young worker housings and kindergarten in Paris, France by Chartier dalix architectes & Avenier Cornejo Architectes

Friday, February 20th, 2015

Article source: Chartier dalix architectes 

This very compact project hosts several programs transforming the building into a real little machine for living. This density assumed by extremely rational plans (development and distribution studios) has two breaths, acting as the urban level as a point of view of applications. The first is horizontal, formed by an open 3rd floor, it gathers all common facilities (library, gym, communal kitchen …) arranged freely on the tray lookout over the city. The second breath is a vertical fault that brings natural light in all circulations horizontal (and vertical). In this regard, we encourage the use of public spaces (including stairs) which are viewed as places for sharing nice and bright. On the urban point of view, this work is how to synchronize the building with a topographic changing context: the device, its coverage, the steepness of the area, the terrace of the art cinema and testing …. All these levels present in the Porte des Lilas are many references with which the new project dialog through its own system of “urban balconies” is playing new strata of the city.
