CheongTae Mountain’s Visitor Information Centre in Gangwon, South Korea by Namu architects

Tuesday, October 20th, 2015

Article source: Namu architects

Admiration  for  a “gable roof” which is very ordinary.

A gable roof is one of the most common building types at agricultural village. It has been used not only for Buddhist temples but also for storages and houses that were unknown.  After modernization, the gable roof type is undergoing many changes that is about scale, usage, material and construction. Under the influence of industrialization and urbanization, long gable roofs need to be adapted to large-scale shed, vinyl greenhouse, and livestock processing plant. It is changing the scenery of agricultural villages. We pay attention to the gable roof that is common and long-running building type. As a “Living and Breathing Silence”, this building put the form of life by following the common building type on demand of site and programs.

Historic Aberdeenshire House in Aberdeen, Scotland by Kebony

Tuesday, October 20th, 2015

Article source: Kebony

A distinctive Edwardian home in north Aberdeenshire was recently given a new lease of life with the addition of an extension inspired by contemporary minimal design. Juxtaposed against the traditional hard wearing granite of the original building, the extension features Kebony cladding which introduces an element of Scandinavian design aesthetic as well as bringing with it all the benefits of resilience and durability that its technology allows. Appearing to ‘float’ in front of a stainless steel mesh, the timberwork gives the building a sense of lightness, contrasting with the solid granite of the main part of the house.
