Diamond, Wien Musem Neu in Vienna, Austria by AVA – Andrea Vattovani Architecture

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015

Article source: AVA – Andrea Vattovani Architecture

The museum is located on one of the most prominent squares in Vienna. Unfortunately it is also one of urbanistically most problematic places in Vienna. The location of the newly planned extension of the “Wien Museum” is a great opportunity to improve the spatial qualities of “Karlsplatz”. The wonderful St. Charles’ Church is for sure one of the highlights of the square and Vienna in general. Urbanistacally the church is the focal point of the square, which has a good effect on it but the surrounding structures don’t really accompany this idea well. A building like St. Charles’ Church requires symmetry surrounding it to present itself even better. This inconsistency in urban planning is always present on the square and it gets more and more clear when you start to spend some time on the square. The current landscaping of the square just adds up to the inconsistency and is therefore also a part of the problem.

A space to refresh your heart and mind.

FREDY in Bruxelles, Belgium by LABEL ARCHITECTURE

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015

Article source: LABEL ARCHITECTURE

The task was to transform a 4 floor’s single-family house into two apartments. Therefore, the challenge was to provide separate circulation and outdoor spaces to each dwelling. For this purpose, an extension volume has been built. Its exterior walls are cladded with lozenge tiles, commonly used to cover gable facades.

BLS HOUSE in Ílhavo, Portugal by M2.senos

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015

Article source: M2.senos

The allotment is in the center of a small seaside town with a fuzzy site between rural and urban landscape, where we can see a consolidated area mixed with expectant land or agricultural fields. The relationship of the building with the street is also peculiar, either by the diagonal set, but also by the excessive depth of field. It is the lowest part that makes the connection with the public space. With these assumptions, we tried to draw a very plastic object, which begins at the edge of the allotment extending itself as much as possible to the inside face.

Lafayette Custom Mid-Century Modern Remodel in California by Klopf Architecture

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015

Article source: Klopf Architecture

The owners of this property had been away from the Bay Area for many years, and looked forward to returning to an elegant mid-century modern house. The one they bought was anything but that. Faced with a “remuddled” kitchen from one decade, a haphazard bedroom / family room addition from another, and an otherwise disjointed and generally run-down mid-century modern house, the owners asked Klopf Architecture and Envision Landscape Studio to re-imagine this house and property as a unified, flowing, sophisticated, warm, modern indoor / outdoor living space for a family of five.

Reading Room of Shenwan Teaching School at Enshi City in Hubei Province, China by SLOW Architects

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015

Article source: SLOW Architects

This teaching school locates in the mountain area of Enshi City, Hubei province and at the intersection of three counties. The students in this area live far away from any of the central school of the three counties, so the teaching school is reserved because of the actual need. But it could not get more financial support to improve its hardward.

New School of Architecture, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, Sweden by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015

Article source: Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

The site on the KTH campus, with its very tangible cultural and historical context and its physical limitations, could be described as the opposite of a blank slate (Tabula Rasa). The new school is inserted into an existing courtyard space with existing pathways and is located adjacent to Erik Lallerstedt’s original and quite monumental brick buildings from the early twentieth century.
