House on a cliff in Oslo, Norway by Austigard Arkitektur AS

Friday, April 8th, 2016

Article source: Austigard Arkitektur AS

The client asked the architect for a one-room extension, which is what the zoning laws would permit. Since The house had only a small garden in front, facing morning sun, so the architect proposed to put the extension largely below ground, and allow for a big rooftop terrace facing evening sun and sunset. This would also allow for a more secluded location of the extended room, which was a wish by the client.

Lucent – De Alliantie headquarters in Hilversum, Netherlands by Studioninedots

Friday, April 8th, 2016

Article source: Studioninedots

Studioninedots’ design transforms an existing 1970s office building on the Lucent site in Hilversum into the new headquarters of de Alliantie, a Dutch housing corporation. The most eye-catching intervention involves the removal of large areas of infill floors and walls from the sturdy concrete structure. This creates a spectacular four-storey-high void, the light and lively new heart of the building that connects the different departments.

ENERGY LAND TOWER in Vienna, Austria by heri&salli

Friday, April 8th, 2016

Article source: heri&salli

The architectural studio heri&salli from Vienna was assigned by the Vienna Technical Museum the development of a solar updraft tower for Vienna’s urban space. In a solar updraft tower the air is warmed by the sun by means of a horizontal floor convector and rises due to the natural thermic convection in a “chimney“. Several turbines create electrical energy by means of this airflow.

Embedded köfererhof in Novacella, Italy by Bergmeisterwolf architekten

Friday, April 8th, 2016

Article source: Bergmeisterwolf architekten

Architecture is a project of development; it’s about inquiring, exploring new ground, about experimentation. It’s working with the landscape, trying to find integration with the material, with proportions. It’s about understanding pictures, their impacts and coloring. For us this process starts from the context and is culturally determined.

Casa tag in Bergamo, Italy by dep studio

Friday, April 8th, 2016

Article source: dep studio

The building is located in the historical center of a small town, in a densely built-up area that does not offer particularly fine views towards around. The property, donated to a young boy by his grandmother, had been subjected in the past to a major restructuring but presented some critical issues that compromised the use and that had to be resolved with radical interventions. First of all the lack of light in the interior.

Urban Treehouse in Berlin Zehlendorf, Germany by Baumraum

Friday, April 8th, 2016

Article source: Baumraum  

The Urban Tree house is a family project and is based on the initiative of the grandfather Hans-Joachim and his grandson Kolja, who ultimately implemented the project. Once more, it is conceived as an experiment and a research project for new construction and housing in tune with nature. It is intended to serve as an oasis and inspire friends and guests of the family, as well as students and those interested in architecture. We were very enthusiastic when the developer, Kolja Stegemann, approached us with the idea of implementing tree houses in the urban environment of Berlin. Tree houses are normally associated with a rural environment or natural surroundings.
