The Transformation M-Pod by michael jantzen studio

Saturday, April 4th, 2015

Article source: michael jantzen studio

The transformation m-pod is a design for a special kind of personal interactive functional art space, created to be used in many different ways. It can function as a place in which to work or play. The cube structure is approximately eight feet square. It is enclosed on four sides with sliding glass doors, and a glass ceiling. Surrounding the glass on five sides are a series of forty hinged panels that can be folded in and out from a solid cube, in order to form many different patterns. This hinging in and out of the panels changes the shape of the pod in many ways. It also changes the way in which the light enters the space. The folding of the panels of course also controls the degree of privacy one has inside. The cube can be completely closed or completely opened with many steps in between.

Article source: FMD Architects

The site is a small 300m2 suburban block in south east Melbourne. The brief was to design a new dwelling to accommodate a family of 4 while also including flexible spaces which can change as the children grow and the needs change. A collection of bikes also needed to be accommodated internally and externally as these are a major form of transport for the family.

Velenje Car Park in Slovenia by ENOTA

Saturday, April 4th, 2015

Article source: ENOTA

Velenje was designed as a garden city and as such, it had a lot of unoccupied ground-level surfaces. With the increase in the number of vehicles, these surfaces began to turn into car parks, which crucially affects the quality of open-air habitation. Like many others in the centre of the town, the car park in front of the community health centre was intended to expand to the surrounding green surfaces due to insufficient capacity. Instead of enlarging the floor area, we chose to partially dig in and cover the car park, doubling the capacity in a simple way. As other projects in the area have shown, the abundance of space in the city made the users reluctant to adopt multi-level parking. Accordingly, the new car park is not designed as a classical parking garage but features a double entrance leading to two car parks laid on top of each other. This makes for highly rational use of the space, as there is no surface lost to circling around the structure, with the building also being naturally ventilated.

TOP! Store in Salacgriva, Latvia by ARHIS ARHITEKTI

Saturday, April 4th, 2015

Article source: ARHIS ARHITEKTI

The building is created for two scales of perception – towards the VIA Baltica highway it is designed as a linear volume to be perceived in movement, its form and material – wooden planks reminds Salacgrivas historical ship crafting tradition. On the other side, facing Riga Street and a pedestrian walkway, a smaller scale facade is designed which plastic-ally flows into the public space and is close to pedestrian’s scale of perception. New interior conception and colour principles were created to improve the style of the grocery store chain.
