The White Mountain School Catherine Houghton Arts Center in Bethlehem, New Hampshire by Randall Walter of BWC

Sunday, September 13th, 2015

Article source: Randall Walter of BWC

The site for this art studio facility was an abandoned tennis court at the heart of the campus. The School had originally been a private country estate, with landscaping designed by the Olmsted Brothers and most of the original features remain. The original owners gifted the property to the School in the late 1930’s but the majority of the original architecture was lost in a tragic fire in the early 1960’s. A new complex was built along with several dorms and all were designed by the same architect, John Carter. The campus therefore has a very cohesive “mid-century modern” aesthetic.

SawMill House in Victoria, Australia by Archier Studio

Sunday, September 13th, 2015

Article source:  Archier Studio 

Description

The Sawmill House uses large reclaimed one tonne blocks of reclaimed concrete which anchor it into the landscape and a dynamic active building envelope to regulate the internal environment. The dwelling is a hand crafted upgrade from an existing rather rustic, bohemian abode, befitting a regionally based sculptor.

Writers’ Cottage 2 in Oslo, Norway by JVA

Sunday, September 13th, 2015

Article source: JVA

This small annex is located in the garden of two professionals in a residential area on the outskirts of the city.

The clients wanted a place that would give them space and quiet to focus on their writing and work. At the same time they wanted a view that could somehow remind them of their native West-Norwegian landscapes, this in spite of the site’s location only offering views towards a parking lot and a train station. Their intention was that the project would work as an alternative to a cottage in the countryside.

Fire department in Pratteln, Switzerland by Maaars Architektur Visualisierungen

Sunday, September 13th, 2015

Article source: Maaars Architektur Visualisierungen

Developed after winning an architectural competition in 2010, the new fire department in Pratteln was completed in October 2013, after nearly one year of construction. The flat new building is located in the town’s western periphery, where residential and commercial areas overlap. Like the appropriate component, the latest addition to this loose network of heterogenous blocks integrates well into the surrounding greenery. The simple but efficient internal organization sets the tone for its outward appearance.
