Friday, January 13th, 2017

Article source: kadawittfeldarchitektur

Between the city centre and the Rhine River

The former railway head office is on Konrad-Adenauer-Ufer immediately opposite the Rhine River and in immediate vicinity of Cologne’s main railway station, the cathedral and the city centre. There are visual links to the cathedral, the bridge Hohenzollernbrücke, the opposite riverbank as well as beyond the Rhine bend to the more distant office buildings and the Cologne Trade Fair Centre, Koelnmesse. Clearly visible from the other side of the river, Neue Direktion Köln is an important landmark within Cologne’s urban landscape.

Graça Apartment in Lisbon, Portugal by fala atelier

Friday, January 13th, 2017

Article source: fala atelier 

The apartment lies in an unremarkable building in Lisbon. Its obsolete fragmented typology presented a series of small rooms, some devoid of natural light, and an impractical exterior bathroom. The intervention aimed to erase these faults and to clarify the use of the available surface: a gently curved wall was extended from façade to façade, defining the limit between a vast common space and the different private rooms.

Old People’s Home in Durango, Spain by Roberto Ercilla Arquitectura

Friday, January 13th, 2017

Article source: Roberto Ercilla Arquitectura

This competition involved a double intervention. On the one hand, it involved the construction of a new building next to the historical building which would hold all of the welfare services for the permanent care of the elderly.  On the other hand, it involved the rehabilitation of the former hospital, to hold different social services and associations. Both buildings were to be related, complementing each other in some way.

Kanarie Club in Amsterdam, The Netherlands by Studio Modijefsky

Friday, January 13th, 2017

Article source: Studio Modijefsky

Set in De Hallen, a former tram depot in Amsterdam west, Kanarie Club pays tribute to the old trams with its renewed design. Digging deep into the history of the building, Studio Modijefsky has created a design with strong references to the past. As a tram depot there were several activities taking place in the space giving service to the run down trams, such as electricity, paint, wood and metal work. These skills and the tools and work spaces they require, inspires the material and colour palette of the new interior and are means to divide the new restaurant space into different zones.

M3・KG in Tokyo, Japan by MOUNT FUJI ARCHITECTS STUDIO

Friday, January 13th, 2017

Article source: MOUNT FUJI ARCHITECTS STUDIO

“dialogue” between the old and the new “substance” 
This is a house to be built in Tokyo, for a movie producer couple.
This architecture is consisted by combining L-shaped blocks of reinforced concrete and sequential frames of box-shaped engineer-wood. We put bedrooms, film archive and galley in solid concrete part for security, and living room in engineer-wood part for openness. 
As material that consist an open space that is 6m in height, 5.5m in width, 14m in depth, we choose thin engineer-wood (38mmx287mm).
Main theme for this architecture is to bring out a sense of mass and material, which were denied by modern architecture which pursued “white, flat wall” as a style.
We intentionally left the wood grain of mold on the surface of concrete, and choose textured stones and irons.
It goes without saying that a house is a relaxing place. A house like a white-cube, surrounded by flat, white walls everywhere, gives a person very abstract image.
But that image could only be sensed when we use intellective part of our brain. 
The problem is that we’re not all-intellective-creature. For the people like this client, who do enough intellectual labor on a daily basis, white-cube would only bring sense of fatigue.
The role of architecture, especially the ones for living, is to soothe the sensory side of people, not to stimulate the intellectual side. That’s my take.
Sure, intellectual living would have got some meaning as a fashion at the time when modern architecture was born.
However, now that it became a part of everyday life, its identity has been lost.
We have to examine whether our approach is rational or not every time we build architecture.
