Article source: VALERIO OLGIATI 

The single-family house rises from a 10-20m wide and 90m long lot in Laax, Switzerland. Local building legislation only permitted the construction of volumes aboveground at opposite ends of the property. One end of the area is situated in the “village zone”, while an “agricultural zone” surrounds the other end. Two completely opposite worlds form the context of this house.

Connecting Space HK in Hong Kong by Parallel Lab

Friday, June 22nd, 2018

Article source: Parallel Lab

The challenge of designing a space for the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK) in Hong Kong was to offer the most flexible framework for a variety of activities such as workshops, exhibitions, performances and others to happen. The rough concrete shell was therefore planned as a adaptive spatial infrastructure. To reinforce the concept of a “tunnel” between Zurich and Hong Kong and invite the neighbourhood to interact with the space the façade is worked out as a porous interface. Instead of a fix facade two layers of polycarbonate roller shutters create a translucent buffer zone that can alternately or simultaneously lift up and fully open the end of the “tunnel” to the street. The 25m long room can on the other hand be configured in a sequence of different sized spaces.

Housing developments and family member

The site of this house was a housing development  which have passed around 40 years since the area had stared selling. There are over 400 numbers of houses but they have no value as a property and people who are living in are not so young anymore. The demands of client are an over 330 square meter land space and enough distances from neighbors for a better privacy. Then the site was thought as the better conditions because of the low price of land and the density of the development.
