Rua Maria Loft in Lisbon, Portugal by KEMA studio

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

Article source: KEMA studio

Project is located in Anjos, Lisbon, Portugal, a zone where the industry mixes with housing buildings in a very dense urban tissue.

The pre-existing space had a function of carpentry, with a limited access to light and a small, lacking identity exterior space.

We decided to maintain as much as possible in the interior, except for the part of a back facade to let more natural daylight in and enforce the relation between interior-exterior.

PRIMARY SCHOOL – LA COUYERE in France by Atelier 56S

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

Article source: Atelier 56S

The Site

The implantation of the project was dictated by the will of an urban re-organisation of the plots defined for the library, the TAP Hall, the multipurpose hall and the new school. Each access from the public space to these plots was located in a different area, we created a footpath from east to west that distributes every new public equipment in a single area. The implantation of the school to the east of the plot alongside the new library reinforces this new public alley. The project is based on the environment in its location, the minerality of the materials, the important surrounding vegetation, and the linear urban division divided by low stone walls located in the actual school’s playground.

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

Article source: gmp · von Gerkan, Marg and Partners Architects

The project was organized by Claudia Ebert (Budersand Hotel), Sven Paulsen (Adler Shipping), Arne Weber (HC Hagemann) and Peter Ewaldsen (mussel fishers’ representative) in cooperation with the Hörnum municipality. In addition to its key commercial role, the harbor is an important tourist attraction in the municipality. In 2016, the northern and southern moles had to be blocked off because they were at risk of collapsing – with a serious impact on their commercial use and on tourism.

Fluid House in Taipei, Taiwan by CJ STUDIO

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

Article source: CJ STUDIO 

A city, from a multinational corporation’s perspective, is a local node to which its different components are distributed. Together with other cities where other parts are spread over, the corporation functions as a whole within the global network, thus it is inevitable for a multination business proprietor to fly between nodes to keep the company on track. The client of this project happens to be one of this sort, which brings up an issue of what a house could be like when its owner does not actually live there but just periodically visiting. The loose linkage allows the house divert from the conventional path and requires a new identity. As it only has to function occasionally, the house is more like a private deluxe hotel suite rather than a real home but is required to act like a real one when it performs. Besides the basic provision of living, it is crucial that there are certain flexible designs for diverse programs like relaxed socializing, entertainment and work.
