The Opal in Copenhagen, Denmark by Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter

Wednesday, June 15th, 2016

Article source: Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter 

Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter has won the competition to design an extension to the existing headquarters of The Danish Society of Engineers, IDA. “The Opal” is technological advanced and a true eye catcher. It will be prominently placed in the Copenhagen Harbour.

The building is named “The Opal”, which refers to the oval gemstone that reflects all colours of the spectrum. The reference is evident in both form and structure. The new landmark will have a similar play of colours when the water is reflected in its skin and through projected lights in the facade.

DRA House in Bali, Indonesia by d-associates architect

Wednesday, June 15th, 2016

Article source: d-associates architect

Boutique resort and villa design developments on the island of Bali are well-known for their extravagant attempts to stage a lush tropical getaway embellished with reproductions of craftsmanship associated with the exotic ‘Balinese’ atmosphere. Against this backdrop, D-Associates’ pursue of a humble sense of home away from home in Bali is a rare undertaking. The brief is simple, to design a villa for an extended Indonesian family in Sanur, one of the most iconic Southern Balinese settlements and the island’s most established tourist destinations. Not dealing with the Western world’s imagination of a somewhat ‘Balinese’ exoticism, here we are encountering a more subtle appreciation of the calm tropical landscape of Sanur. The villa is envisioned as a family retreat set in a tropical landscape, a contrast to their Jakarta living, while learning from a particular aspect of spatial configuration of Bali’s indigenous dwelling architecture: an emphasis in breaking up the volume of a house and in blurring the inside and outside spaces.

Wednesday, June 15th, 2016

Article source: ALPHAVILLE architects 

We designed a new guesthouse for young people from all over the world at Koya-san, the head temple of the Shingon sect founded 1200 years ago, the UNESCO world heritage. It is a mixture of Japanese capsule type hotel in which the privacy is well protected, and dormitory in which the communication among the guests is active. Each single room directly faces a hall so that you can chose proper distance with other guests ensuring the privacy. Selecting of thin wooden structure, resulting that the burden load per one pillar is relatively light, visibility of environmental facilities for easier maintenance and the simple composition of the space allow not only owner of this guest house but also guests to maintain, modify and keep on using this architecture for the long time.

Cirkus, Scandiascenen in Stockholm, Sweden by White Arkitekter

Wednesday, June 15th, 2016

Article source: White Arkitekter

The historic Cirkus theatre in Stockholm – built 1892 – has received a modern addition, Skandiascenen, partly built into a niche of solid rock. The foyers of the two amphitheaters are placed on two different levels. From the outside, each one of the facades preserves its own identity which is a testimony to their respective age. Inside, both venues share an intimate feeling in the auditoria and even the same shade of red that is commonly associated with traditional theatres.
