Vibeeng School in Sealand, Denmark by Arkitema Architects

Monday, September 4th, 2017

Article source: Arkitema Architects 

The primary goal of the vibeeng School is to integrate sustainability and learning in a low energy school (equivalent to LEED gold). The building is characterized by its red exterior and the abrupt foldings of the roof which create “house” like images in the facade and spatial variation in the interior. At the same time the varying shapes of the roof provide optimum angles for south facing solar panels and north facing windows. Both active measures that help create a low energy school. The school itself is designed from the inside out with an overriding concept that activates the whole plot and the landscape elements that surround the school.

Monday, September 4th, 2017

Article source: Cometa Architects

The steep ground and the plot’s narrow dimensions determine the pronounced and gradient form of the building which rises from the mountain and over the valley of Poisses, to finally balance itself with the surrounding traditional dwellings and the natural context.

Dark Horse in Brunswick East, Australia by Architecture Architecture

Monday, September 4th, 2017

Article source: Architecture Architecture 

In a row of workers’ cottages, there is one Dark Horse – a handsome creature. The stepped parapet, centred window, sidelined door and entrance awning are carried with the familiar, unassuming composure of its neighbours. Yet here the materials, stark in their composition, have a distinctly 21st century character, hinting at the contemporary home within.

Casa Portobello in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil by Tripper Arquitetura

Monday, September 4th, 2017

Article source: Tripper Arquitetura 

The project starts from the interlocution between a topography that, concomitantly, shapes and is shaped by architecture. Conceived by the architect Marcelo Moura, from the Rio de Janeiro office Tripper Arquitetura, the residence is composed of a succession of overlapping plans, each one starting from the encounter with the ground to launch itself in cantilever, a fact that ends up establishing a double condition: The house is contiguous to the land, providing a perception of single-storey house on all floors, while the floors become slabs in suspension, that is, terraces in height. Through them, the architectural proposition approaches the tradition of the great Brazilian colonial house – the house surrounded by the generous porch. These solariums and balconies are the intermediation between the intimate spaces of the house and the exuberant natural landscape that surrounds it.
