Dartmouth College House Center Pilots in Hanover, New Hampshire by Sasaki

Friday, October 6th, 2017

Article source: Sasaki

In 2014, Sasaki completed a study of Dartmouth College’s residential life experience. Following recommendations from this study, the college officially moved to a house system in 2016. This change will strengthen community, promote continuity of friendship over students’ college careers, and increase opportunities for deeper intellectual engagement through informal interactions. The six house communities are formed from clusters of existing residence halls, many of which were built between 1920–50. As this housing stock had not been built to accommodate student life needs, four communities required additional common space to support the new house programming. Sasaki designed two temporary House Centers to meet this need.

Casa Vidular in Spain by 2260mm arquitectura

Friday, October 6th, 2017

Article source: 2260mm arquitectura 

Renovation of an old county house in Cantabria, in northern Spain. The house had the typical structure of ancient houses of that zone: stone walls and a timber structure of columns and beams.

Unfortunatelly, at the time we were designing the project, the house partially felt down. Only 2 stone facades remained standing, so in fact we had to rebuild completelly the house.

Ecole de Riddes in Switzerland by R2A architectes

Friday, October 6th, 2017

Article source: R2A architectes

This primary school is the first project of our young architecture office.

The square. Built as a very compact structure, the new primary school inserts itself into the village. Regarding its scale and position the building conveniently interacts with the existing school and the smaller village housing. The project offers a whole new public space that provides a renewed articulation between the school center and the village. Taking advantage of the two different levels between the schoolyard and the village square, the underground lobby connects the old school to the new one.

Article source: Eek en Dekkers (Piet Hein Eek Architecture)

In June 2014 we were asked to devise a plan for the renovation of a historic farmhouse (1904) in the Friesian town of Woudsend. The client wanted to turn it into a vibrant meeting place, in which the handicrafts and food from the surrounding area play a central role. The milk and meat come from the Friesian cow, the flour from the mill in the village, the wood from the adjacent mill and you can catch your own eel and smoke it in the smokehouse down the road.
