Ljubljana apartment in Slovenia by SoNo arhitekti

Friday, April 29th, 2016

Article source: SoNo arhitekti

This older larger apartment is located in the city center of Ljubljana. The client’s wish was to transform an existing residential space into an open, modern and at the same time a comfortable and a functional home. We have created a central living area where the furniture elements, despite their uniform appearance form two distinct ambiances, but also connect to the smaller intimate atrium. Along the main dividing wall the kitchen elements are located and they subtly convert into the fireplace that sensibly rounds up the entire residential space. Playfully arranged furniture elements which are otherwise clean simple geometric shapes achieve a more sensible integration of the existing walls as well as a more reasonable organization of the space itself. Smaller cramped rooms now are logically linked and more spacious and thus create a better feeling of living.

Children’s Culture House Ama’r in Copenhagen, Denmark by Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter

Friday, April 29th, 2016

Article source: Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter

The Children’s Culture House offers various play facilities and programmes for children of all ages.

Located on a street corner, the structure mediates between the adjoining brick buildings, which are of different height. In it’s form and use of materials, however, the centre is quite distinct. A silvery aluminium skin, perforated by square windows is drawn over the roof and outer walls and the lower height at the corner allows sunlight to enter the rear courtyard. The expression of the Children’s Culture House is surprising and imaginative: the roof and facades are treated the same, and the House does not have a “start” and “end” as ordinary houses do.

Nursery School Extension in Mantes-la-Ville, France by GRAAL ARCHITECTURE

Friday, April 29th, 2016

Article source: GRAAL ARCHITECTURE 

The design for the extension of the Alliés de Chavannes nursery school draws on its context within the landscape and its integration within the site. The three new volumes that house the extension connect to the longitudinal circulation of the existing building in such a way as to allow them to be perceived as separate pavilions. The existing building is reconfigured to become the school’s spine. Distinguished by two types of metal cladding – galvanized steel and anthracite zinc – the new volumes provide a visible distinction between the original building and its extension. The new volumes are organized to ensure fluidity and a programmatic organization in harmony with the existing functioning of the school, logically inserted between the trees and providing views of the surrounding vegetation. Elevated on steel stilts and with facade openings offering each space a variety of orientations, the extensions allow pupils to imagine that their school is a tree house!

Underline Café in Hangzhou, China by LYCS Architecture

Friday, April 29th, 2016

Article source: LYCS Architecture

Choosing a suitable office is the first challenge that many entrepreneurial firms may come up with. Usually a micro entrepreneurial firm needs flexible space to accommodate uncertain staff. On one hand, renting a large office space in one step will tremendously add the newly established firms’ financial burden; On the other hand, if the company rents a relatively small office space, it may turn out to be too crowed when the company grows. What’s worse, there may be no space for meeting room, reception room and some other programs. What exactly should the entrepreneurs do to find their office ?

Polwaththa House in Pannipitiya, Sri Lanka by Chinthaka Wickramage Architect

Friday, April 29th, 2016

Article source: Chinthaka Wickramage Architect

PROJECT DESCRIPTION 

A small coconut grove measuring approximately half an acre (80 Perches) overlooking a paddy field, inherited by the owner, was selected to build a house in Sub Urban Colombo. There were existing houses on the Western edge of the property with medium built up density but the Eastern side was full of mature trees including coconut trees, while Northern side overlooked a beautiful paddy field. In addition there were substantial numbers of existing mature trees present at the site boundaries, giving it almost a ‘semi wilderness’. Challenges for the architects were to build a four bedroomed house overlooking this wonderful future garden saving many existing trees as possible.

Wind Tower in UAE by Peter Stasek Architects

Friday, April 29th, 2016

Article source: Peter Stasek Architects

The global climate change leaves visible traces in the environment which sometimes emerge in the form of scars or devastation or simply represent the disappearance of something that has always been present. Humans struggle against this largely selfinflicted new world order and continuously try to slow this process down. The evershrinking glaciers in the high mountains are covered with awnings during summer and the regions which are endangered by sea flooding are equipped with new ramparts and sluices in order to protect the coast. Just as the tsunamis, the hurricanes transform the man-made environment in large stretches of land into a mishmash at one go, which makes it hard to guess what kind of function its components had to fulfill in the past. A new kind of aesthetics defined by chaos.

  • Architects: Peter Stasek Architects
  • Project: Wind Tower
  • Location: UAE
  • Software used: ArchiCAD, 3ds Max, Photoshop
  • Inspiration: The concept “Wind Tower 2016″ represents a kind of skyscraper which is shaped by tsunami and hurricane masses. A trapped cloud in its free form, pending in the air and only fixed by the core, still demonstrating its homogeneity (resonance) to the floating streams of air.
  • Production/Realization Technology: 3D-sand printed facade patterns with integrated glass fronts, Carbon fiber reinforced polyamide for Down Wind Turbine casing. Wind Tower is situated on an artificial sand island with a road access from the mainland
  • Specifications/ Technical Properties: 250m height
  • TeamMembers (1): Peter Stasek Architect and Simon Wagner – 3D Visualization
  • Tags: Peter Stasek, Wind Tower, Wind Tower 2016, matrixX architectures, matrixX architectrues by Peter Stasek,Simon Wagner,3D-square Wagner
  • Research Abstract: How to create a building, which is shaped by tsunami and hurricane masses. A new kind of aesthetics generated by chaos.
  • Challenge: A new order generated from chaos. As a new challenge, one could try to develop new urban structures and architectural forms which are not in contrast to but in conformity with the forces of nature which are able to further develop their potential of strength as a result of the global climate change.
