Walk-on balcony in Gliwice, Poland by ZALEWSKI ARCHITECTURE GROUP

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015

Article source:  ZALEWSKI ARCHITECTURE GROUP

There are ideas that arise from the need of a particular moment. Such a need – another hot day of summer spent in the office and a thought “if only I could go for a walk” – became inspiration for a project of a path suspended in the air, a balcony Walk-on. It is also one of the ideas to change a sad courtyard, that we overlook every day out of the office windows on the 3rd floor, to give the courtyard a bit of magic. A normal path is tortuous, winds, does not lead directly to the goal, surprises, relaxes, gives contact with nature. Therefore our path should also flow freely in space – giving you a moment of relaxation, rest, allowing you to change the perspective. This influenced its shape – it winds freely and intertwines with itself – it allows for a relaxing walk “from office to office.” Longing for a bit of greenery made us treat the path as a large pot. We filled it with grass that can grow as it wants – after all it’s just a path.

Holy Cross House in Montréal, Canada by TBA / Thomas Balaban Architecte

Tuesday, February 17th, 2015

Article source: v2com

Recipient of the Residential space 1,600-3,200 ft2 Award at Québec’s Grands Prix du Design 2014.

Located in the city’s up and coming Southwest neighbourhood this 300 m2 detached house hides a rich spatial complexity behind its tough working class façade. Turning to the neighbourhood’s post-war veteran’s home as its formal point of departure, the architects set out to make a house that simultaneously fits in and stands out from its heterogeneous context without resorting to mimicry and without sacrificing the contemporary nature of the project.
