The French International School of Beijing in China by Jacques Ferrier Architecture with Sensual City Studio

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

Article source: Jacques Ferrier Architecture 

The French School of Beijing, designed by Jacques Ferrier Architecture and Sensual City Studio, has been imagined as a built landscape. It is being developed on a site in the “Orchard” neighbourhood, which takes its name from the old orchards which, until recently, were a defining feature of this stretch of land alongside the road to the airport. Since then, the development of high-end residential blocks and international schools has introduced a new urban character with collections of low rise buildings alongside generous green spaces.

St Joseph’s Nudgee College in Queensland, Australia by m3architecture

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

Article source: m3architecture 

The Bathersby Boarding Village is akin to a castle in the centre of a city (the school). It is a place where every boy can feel like “the King of the Castle”.

Fort-like boarding houses have a long tradition in English schools. They offer appropriate frameworks for safety, security and community building.

Silence as a language – NSN Church in Leiria, Portugal by BICA Arquitectos

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

Article source: BICA Arquitectos

The church is located in the center of a crowded village. The intervention is based on a building previously constructed, where the interior was unfinished. We started with the idea of “building the silence”. In a world full of noise, the church represents a break, a moment of rest, peace and meditation. The strong spiritual character is present but doesn’t intimidate, it gives a sense of protection. The selection of materials, the way of moulding both natural and artificial light and the absence of images had the purpose of achieving harmony, a primarily condition in order to assure silence.

Headquarter SVA in Vienna, Austria by HOLODECK architects

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

Article source: HOLODECK architects

The headquarter of the main association of the Austrian Social Insurance Fund is located in the third district, at Erdbergstrasse. The Wittgensteinhaus, the Rochusmarkt and the Grete Jostpark are important cultural buildings and urban areas arranged during site construction in 70s. In this high-quality context, we carefully place a spatial composition of the landscape park and building cubature. The vertical slice is proportionally supplemented by a horizontal slab and integrated the existing landscape park spatially and functionally. The inviting ground floor zone reaches the users and visitors over the extensive open space with shade-spreading trees or over the entrance along the Kundmanngasse. The naturally exposed hall provides a clear orientation and access to the areas.

BOR1 – School Complex in Bordeaux, France by JOLY&LOIRET

Tuesday, December 20th, 2016

Article source: JOLY&LOIRET 

One school per floor, one playground per level: outside spaces accessed directly from their relative interior spaces; 3 ‘ground’-floors. A metaphor for the world, nature, ecosystems; the sky, the forest, the earth.

The creche occupies the ‘climatic’ layer: façades reflecting the sky, clouds and the ‘protective’ tree canopy.

Cinnamon Tower in Hamburg, Germany by BOLLES+WILSON GmbH & Co. KG

Tuesday, December 20th, 2016

Article source: BOLLES+WILSON GmbH & Co. KG

The Cinnamon tower was conceived as freestanding campanile – a pin on a piazza was the concept behind the premiated competition design by BOLLES+WILSON for the existing 19th century Harbour Masters Building.

A tower was not anticipated in the competition programme, but the jury agreed that a tower anchors the public functions around the only remaining historical building to survive between the megablocks of the ‘Overseas Quarter’ master plan. The historic building would thus be more autonomous.

3 Houses 3 Sisters in Coimbra, Portugal by BICA Arquitectos

Tuesday, December 20th, 2016

Article source: BICA Arquitectos

In a small village near the city of Coimbra, 3 sisters inherit and share a land. They wanted to build a house that would join them for the second time in their lives, because the family houses they own are nowadays too large.

Located at the village’s entrance, this field is composed by two streets, a square and a small house. The implementation of the 3 houses elects as the main facade the south elevation, that adjoins the street and turns too the square at east.
