Artificial Snow Cave Emergency Shelter in Parche, Nepal by Margot Krasojević Architects

Tuesday, May 31st, 2016

Article source: v2com

The hut offers a snowdrift frame made from weighted carbon fibre mesh, this contoured landscape mimics the surrounding vertiginous precipices and landscapes, the carbon fibre snowscape creates an artificial snow cave which can be burrowed into and around enabling climbers to inhabit the excavated structure in a similar way to a snow cave. The composite carbon frame catches the snowdrift using snow as an insulating material, as it is a mesh structure pockets of rooms can be carved into the build up of snow as well as air vents to help air circulation, it is possible to further insulate the structure by digging a small pit deeper into one part of the cave floor to provide a place for the coldest air to gather, away from the occupants, the entrance may be partially blocked with chunks of snow to deflect wind and retain heat.

Interior Renovation in Japan by frontofficetokyo

Tuesday, May 31st, 2016

Article source: frontofficetokyo

First built in the 1970’s the apartment was cramped by contemporary standards, even for Tokyo, with low ceilings and short and narrow rooms. After stripping the space down to a single room, the design takes a hint from the overlapping spaces in the city and is composed from three simple shapes. A grey wood box houses the laundry, a concrete box contains the bath and sink, while an S shaped partition forms a closet and space for the fridge. The updated space is simple but comfortable and connects to the city perfectly.

A Barn House in the Countryside in Donderen, The Netherlands by aatvos

Tuesday, May 31st, 2016

Article source: aatvos

Background

The task of conceiving a private home in the countryside south of Donderen in the North of the Netherlands raises the question as to how far the existing typology is suitable, without resorting to historicizing architecture. This local typology is strongly determined by the simple Drenthe barn: straightforward, at a right angle to the road axis, centered in the countryside, without a privacy layer, functional, a single construction layer with roof. Farms fitting this description have already existed for centuries.
