Pwllheli’s New Sailing Academy in Wales by Kebony

Friday, November 20th, 2015

Article source: Kebony

The Welsh sailing community will be reinvigorated this autumn with the opening of a striking new National Sailing Academy and Events Centre. Situated on the Pwllheli coast amongst breathtaking scenery, the center is partly funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government and Gwynedd Council. This state-of-the-art facility exhibits beautifully constructed Kebony decked balconies, seating areas and cladded curved walls. The use of Kebony’s wood has fashioned a beautifully crafted space, which perfectly complements the natural beauty of the Welsh coastline, while maintaining an environmentally friendly approach to the build.

Friday, November 20th, 2015

Article source: Lagula Arquitectes

Z-Balca House reconsiders some of Lagula’s formal and material premises previously used in PGAC. The origin of such questioning comes from the PGAC management itself, who was interested in a non-conventional building, and interested in the use of dry construction technologies.

Terraced-House Renovation in Schaerbeek, Belgium by Edouard Brunet + François Martens

Friday, November 20th, 2015

Article source: Edouard Brunet + François Martens

Taking into account the city’s urban tissue, the project is the renovation of a Brussels typical terraced-house. Originally inhabited by a single family, the house appeared too big and difficult to take care of after the children grew up and left. The owner of the house then decided to sell the last two floors to a friend, in order for him to convert them into his own appartement.
