Museumplein Limburg in Kerkrade, Netherlands by Shift Architecture

Wednesday, January 13th, 2016

Article source: Shift Architecture

Museumplein Limburg, designed by Shift architecture urbanism, has been completed in Kerkrade, a town at the Dutch-German border. Two new public facilities, Cube and Columbus, have been added to the existing Discovery Centre Continium. With these additions, Kerkrade hosts the first design museum in the Netherlands, the first inverse planetarium in Europe, as well as a wide range of new public amenities. Shift architecture urbanism’s design is an urban ensemble defined by clearly recognizable volumes, all connected by an elaborate underground public space. Museumplein Limburg formalizes the entrance into Kerkrade for both train passengers and visitors arriving by car from the main access road.

STRAUSS apartment in Strasbourg, France by YCL

Wednesday, January 13th, 2016

Article source: YCL

A 114-sq.m. area apartment in Strasbourg, France, where sophisticated old-fashioned elegance meets modern design. Designing functionally comfortable and aesthetic residential environment preserving the authentic elements of the interior of the apartment and interpreting classics in modern light was important to us, as architects. We wanted to distinguish several important elements – what is new and what is authentic. We arranged all this by choosing several combinations of colours: new elements are in darker shades and the antique elements remain white.

In a region of heavy snowfall in Nagaoka, Niigata, Japan, the site is situated in the semi-industrial zone, more specifically, in a residential district in between factories and rice field. An elevated railway for The Jōetsu bullet train nearby as well as a broad road and a river for industrial use characterize slightly larger-scale landscape of the area.

Student Center Georgetown University in Washington DC by Ikon.5 architects

Wednesday, January 13th, 2016

Article source: Ikon.5 architects 

The New South Student Center at Georgetown University is a renovation and addition that transforms an existing mid century residence hall into a vibrant new university living room for undergraduate life. Inspired by the unique ‘Hoya Saxa’ (stones) identity of the Georgetown student body, the center creates an experience of study and casual living spaces carved out of interior and exterior stone edifices. The ‘Saxa’ living wall is a stone clad green wall that provides a natural bio-friendly character to the Great Room that overlooks the Potomac and is one of many design features that assist this project in achieving a LEED Gold certification. Inside the ‘Saxa’ living wall are 12 individual wood clad group study rooms with enhanced video display systems and writable glass partition for students to work on projects together or separately. The Riverside Terrace is an outdoor landscaped area that extends the living space of the Great Room outdoors and overlooks the Potomac.
