Upcycling Gemert in The Netherlands by Denkkamer architectuur & onderzoek

Sunday, August 20th, 2017

Article source: Denkkamer architectuur & onderzoek

The initiators developed a process in which spent mushroom compost from mushroom cultivation is upgraded and turned into a valuable soil improver. They do this by biologically drying spent mushroom compost in so-called tunnels. By adding a small amount of concentrated manure, a popular soil improver rich in nitrogen, phosphate and potassium is created. The spent mushroom compost is not only upgraded to a popular soil improver but it is also made lighter in specific weight. As a result, fewer freight transports are needed to deliver the product. A large amount of heat is released naturally during the biological drying process. This heat is used to provide the neighbouring existing mushroom nurseries with heat and consequently natural gas-fuelled boilers are no longer required. The surplus heat is distributed to nearby crop growers.

House on the Island Murter in Croatia by Dva arhitekta

Sunday, August 20th, 2017

Article source: Dva arhitekta

The house is located in a typical Mediterranean-Dalmatian situation – on one side, a multi-storey house made for the market, on the other pseudotraditional luxury villa with pool. Long and narrow lot determines the shape of the home, and the client’s love for exotic plants offers an inspiration to solve the contact zones with neighbors and create a private world outlined by two frames. The upper loggia defines the living area with a kitchen and dining area overlooking the pool. The lower intimate space is oriented towards a longitudinal garden, a space of peace and privacy. Elementary form affirms the environment and transforms it into the extension of the home, drawing away from a non-inspiring environment outside the lot. Such an approach is also manifested in the choice of materials – the floors and walls are in similar textures so as to become a single whole.

Article source: Dittel Architekten GmbH

DIA – Dittel Architekten conceptualised and designed the fine food restaurant Enso Sushi & Grill in a prime location in the Dorotheen Quartier shopping mall in Stuttgart. The restaurant’s modern design is as sophisticated and creative as Asian-European fusion cuisine. The reinterpretation of traditional Asian architectural elements using high-quality materials and natural colours lend a unique appeal to the 250 m2 restaurant. The restaurant concept truly lives up to its name, Enso, which means “harmony and perfection”.

Loft L in Paris, France by Jbmn Architectes

Sunday, August 20th, 2017

Article source: Jbmn Architectes 

The renovation of this apartment seeks to exploit the high height available in this former artist studio located on the top floor of a Parisian building built at the beginning of the 20th century. Two mezzanines are arranged and face each other around a large central void. Stairs made of metal and solid wood, arranged symmetrically, give access to the rooms thus created. Large balustrades in fishing nets delimit the living area of the staircase. With the opening/closing of large internal shutters, the rooms can open on the central void or on the contrary isolate themselves, allowing a flexibility of uses.

House with a Tree in Basel, Switzerland by Sauter von Moos

Sunday, August 20th, 2017

Article source: Sauter von Moos

Maintaining the tenderness and charm of the existing house from the 1930’s, our intention was to

(1) gently renovate / restore the existing structure

(2) enlarge the building through a series of micro-scale additions that follow the logic of the existing spatial division into small rooms

(3) entangle the existing, the tree and the new in a joyful composition

(4) improve the house’s energy-balance by modernizing all technical installations using exclusively renewable energies

(5) carefully relate the house to its surroundings, both natural and urban.

Opposite the building, there is the rhythmic series of brick blocks of the Caproni factory, with their shed roof and industrial archaeology charm: the M89 Hotel – the new four-star destination at number 89 of via Mecenate– faces the factory halls that one hundred years ago hosted one of the leading aviation companies and which are now home to Gucci, after a meticulous renovation and expansion project by Piuarch.

Resort & Winery BORGO BACCILE in Crecchio, Italy by Rocco Valentini

Sunday, August 20th, 2017

Article source: Rocco Valentini

Restoration and reuse of a tiny rural hamlet immersed in the Abruzzo countryside, in an advanced state of degradation, to transform it into a receptive structure, able to convey to the guests the emotions and sensations of the pre-industrial campaign life. Buildings have been made functional with the addition of contemporary structures. The small Borgo Baccile, dating from a few houses dating back to the mid-‘800, is located just a short distance from the historic center of Crecchio. The buildings, following the post-war social transformations, had been abandoned. Some of them, such as House B, had structural and empty breakdowns due to collapse. The design choice was to leave the original mummified structures, making them anti-seismic with steel injections and steel rims, and add functional elements with contemporary shapes, materials and colors in harmony with the sandstone of existing buildings.
