Public park by DRAFTARCH

Saturday, May 9th, 2015

Article source: DRAFTARCH

Parco di Piantonia overlooks the valley of the Sporzana stream. Friedrich’s “Wanderer” observes the landscape in a sea of fog. The form of the design uses the relationship between the landscape and the existing trees: the path provides structure and divides up the green space, as far up as the viewpoint.

Villa Arkö in Arkösund, Sweden by Marge Arkitekter AB

Saturday, May 9th, 2015

Article source: Marge Arkitekter AB

Villa Arkö is a summer house situated on an island in the archipelago of Norrköping that will also have the possibility to house the family over Christmas and fall vacations. A steep slant towards south east with a marvelous view is the benchmark for the placement and the form of the villa. The house contains of an archetypical basic shape with a high-pitched roof completely covered in cedar wood which over time will get a silver grey color and interact with the surrounding cliff landscape.  A glassed lower volume with sedum roofing and terraces is added on and is thereby creating a building which is following the decrease of the slant.  The in-between spaces of the volumes creates out-door spaces in different cardinal directions, on different levels, with and without roofs. Sliding sun shields (with inbuilt mosquito net for the bed rooms) can cover in and protect the house from weather and wind.

Balmori Rooftop Bar in Zacatecas, Mexico by Taller David Dana Arquitectura

Saturday, May 9th, 2015

Article source: Taller David Dana Arquitectura

The creative process for this Project experienced multiple design facets in many different levels.The evolution from Schematic Design to Construction Documents was built based on a deductive process of clever decision making. Balmori Rooftop Bar is a project that was born from the necessity of public open space in Roma Norte. The site has unique potentials; it is one of the few rooftop bars in the city & the only one with 300 square meters. Balmori was design with the objective of creating an innovative youthful space which would offer an opportunity for disconnection from the Urban Mass. In the era of technology & globalization, these particles of cities become the lungs of the metropolis. Our design overlaps landscape, graphic design, furniture design and architecture.
