Amani Library in Rombo, Tanzania by Social Practice Architecture

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017

Article source: Social Practice Architecture

In Tanzania, building with earth represents the past and is associated with poor living conditions. Traditional materials and techniques adapted to the environment are abandoned in favor of importing expensive and sometimes energy-inefficient materials and products, such as concrete blocks, from which only manufacturers in more advanced economies benefit. The project aims to bring back earth as a modern and sustainable building material, using traditional handcraft and simple methods, for continuing a local rural building tradition. It also encourages local and international participation and can serve as an example for future building developments to improve the quality of Tanzania’s rural housing.

“Casas Catalinas” are family homes located in Rio Ceballos, along the Córdoba mountain range and away from the city. They set up in 5000 square-foot lands.

The project seeks to provide home solutions to middle class young families that have access to social loans provided by the state. These 1185 square-foot houses have a limited budget and the main guidelines have to do with lively rooms, austere and detail less design, reducing construction costs.

A glass corridor with views of both the sea and the arrival area connects the guest annex and the main building. The summer cottage is modular with a wooden structure, at roof and black, vertically-mounted pro le cladding. The at roof is coated with a green sedum roof, so that on arrival you immediately have contact with the Sejerø Bay and the horizon beyond.The terrain declines so the four main volumes are placed on the site with a facade line and garden wall that follows the lines of the terrain, while also providing natural shelter from the wind. Interior materials comprise oak parquet, design concrete ooring and a front door in solid oak.

In Europe’s second largest baroque castle schneider+schumacher have created a modern study and conference center for Mannheim Business School, which was officially opened today. A decommissioned boiler room and its associated coal cellar dating from the 1950s have been transformed into landscape art at Mannheim’s palace. “Dug into the garden, the new complex and the historic building together form a remarkable new entity, yet in a stylistic idiom that is unequivocally 21st century, proving that the future is firmly rooted in the past”, claims Michael Schumacher who, together with Till Schneider, owns schneider+schumacher.

Facette in Bordeaux, France by Studioninedots

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017

Article source: Studioninedots 

Studioninedots proudly presents: Facette, a collective and future-proof mixed-use office building in the heart of Bordeaux’s new district Belvédère.
To create an accessible building on the central axis of Boulevard Joliot-Curie, with an active, inviting ground floor for both occupants and passersby, the surrounding public spaces are literally drawn into the building. This results in a transparent and sculptural ‘rez-de-chaussée’ (ground floor). This typology, which Studioninedots calls WeSpace, functions as a collective, versatile space for working, leisure and meeting. This WeSpace is an extension of both the workplace and the public space.
