Calypso House in Jouneih Bay, Lebanon by SOMA Architects

Saturday, June 11th, 2016

Article source: SOMA Architects

New York-based architects SOMA delivered an outstanding private residence located on the north side of Jouneih Bay, Lebanon.

It is a significant milestone for a project whose design plunges into the sea, Calypso hovers over the water like a crystal emerging from the rocks. Nestled on a small strip of rugged rocks between the main road and the sea, the form of the house is derived directly from this ragged landscape.

Nook Residence in Mansonville, Canada by MU Architecture

Saturday, June 11th, 2016

Article source: v2com

Located in a quiet area of the Eastern Townships in Quebec, the Nook Residence sits in continuity with the landscape in which it is part. Turning its back to the street, it offers a virtually blind facade that encourages discovery and piques curiosity. Strategically located openings and a large gap in the white mass give a hint at the beautiful scenery below as we approach the building.

HG House is a house on the beach for my parents, for them it was very important that the house could receive all the family and guests and also to function at a reduced size when they were alone.

“When an architect design for a relative, there is some experimental freedom, but then the next commission you must validate your work through the client.”

A stable turned into an office in West Flanders, Belgium by Studio Farris Architects

Saturday, June 11th, 2016

Article source: Image MEDIA AGENCY

Studio Farris Architects transformed a small barn, part of a farm complex with several buildings, into an office space with meeting room, library, office desks and a resting/reading area.

The owner wanted to have a small office detached from his house so he would be able to work from home at times. The stable was no more in use so he decided to use it as his home-office.

KINDERGARTEN in Brasília, Brazil by ceu arquitetos

Saturday, June 11th, 2016

Article source: ceu arquitetos

The project proposes a volumetric “home”, based on the characteristic features of children’s drawings. The goal is to rescue the home of senses: welcome, belonging and familiarity. The student complex, divided into blocks or “houses”, aims to change the concept of school building and become a landscape in its own right, a metaphor for the playhouse or even a small town. The school becomes a symbol for the neighborhood for having a playful feature that differentiates it from other buildings. The warmly of the “houses” invites us to live our dreams, introducing a bit of fantasy to routine life not only of children but of the entire neighborhood; as well as inspire our lives with a little poetry.

Integral Kids Centre (IKC) Zeven Zeeën in Amsterdam, Netherlands by Moke Architecten

Saturday, June 11th, 2016

Article source: Moke Architecten

In Banne Buiksloot in the north of Amsterdam the general building fabric consists of high apartment blocks. In contrast the public buildings do the opposite. They form a network of low buildings that seek a strong connection to the public domain. The new 2 storey primary school, designed by the architect Gianni Cito of the Amsterdam office Moke Architecten, does the same. The school stands out due to its crenelated shed roof and the tribune stairway that connects the school with the playground. The playful round windows and the red scaly façade give the building an autonomous expression that fits its public role.
