Monday, September 18th, 2017

Article source: KM 429 architecture 

The project area is located at the edge of Zone of Luxury Environment within the perimeters of the areas ‘ZPS’ and ‘SIC’ at Bettolino, among the municipality of Novellara, Reggiolo and Fabbrico. The new house will be built in one of the most picturesque and typical zones of the reggiana plain, with its rare historical landscape and naturalistic value, fruit of the spontaneous fusion between nature and human work centuries old. This landscape, consolidated over centuries by a continuous rural work remained unchanged in forms and methods, has acquired a distinctive and unique look inside the reggiano. The compact in shape and volume house, even if in its limited forms, resumed the characteristcs of the typical rural buildings in these areas, with the roof in two pitches.

TREE VILLA at Forest Hills in Maharashtra, India by Architecture BRIO

Monday, September 18th, 2017

Article source: Architecture BRIO 

The Tree Villa perches on the cliff of a 160 acre hilltop ‘treesort’ property surrounded by a meandering river landscape. The idyllic setting in Tala on the West coast of India, is a stone’s throw away from the Kuda caves. Nearly 20 centuries ago, Buddhist monks instinctively understood the qualities of this meditative landscape and made the hills their home. The Tree Villa was conceived by Architecture BRIO as a celebration of this landscape by creating  a series of blurred transitional spaces with different levels of transparency and openness within this forested tropical setting.

RK House in Paraná, Brazil by AP Architetos

Monday, September 18th, 2017

Article source: AP Architetos 

AP Arquitetos was founded in 2010 and seeks to establish a contemporary architectural language, experimental and still focused on local and historical values. We understand architecture much more as a methodological process in which several professionals act together. With this vision we can reach new ideas and concepts that can be applied in a practical way and with a high degree of innovation and experimentalism. Our process works each project in a unique way, that is, with a “tailoring” thought. The firm has projects in several Brazilian cities besides Peru, Italy and the USA.

Church of St. Wenceslas in Sazovice, Czech Republic by Atelier Štěpán

Monday, September 18th, 2017

Article source: Atelier Štěpán 

Church of St. Wenceslas in Sazovice is a modern rotunda and contemporary architecture built on conservative principles from Moravian architectural office Atelier Štěpán. The idea of building a church in Sazovice dates from the interwar period. In 2011 the people of Sazovice brought the idea again and founded the association of church building. The first important task was to find a particular location, which would help to amplify the spiritual sense of church. According to the masterplan, we discovered 4 possible sites for the building. Only one of them was in the heart of Sazovice perfectly linked with the surrounding building structure and its social connections.

Seven Coffee in Changzhou, China by dongqi Architects

Sunday, September 17th, 2017

Article source: dongqi Architects 

Dongqi Architects transformed and enlarged an old café into a new space with coffee, craft beer、food and bakery in the downtown of Changzhou.

The interior space is an overall “L” shape space. Coffee, craft beer and bakery zones take places separately in the three corners of the “L”. Coffee and craft beer zone have white ceilings and floors,and the bakery zone is a space with black covered all surfaces. The black and white spaces is divided by the curvy ceiling edge and steel wire. The heights of the ceilings on the two sides are different which not only differentiate the spaces according to their functions, but also naturally merge the old space and the new space together into an indivisible whole.

King solomon elementary school in Israel by Shoshani Architects

Sunday, September 17th, 2017

Article source: Shoshani Architects

The King Solomon School is a Jewish, bilingual and International school in the center of Israel. It promotes holistic education.

The design concept is based on the wish to translate the pedagogical – philosophical idea of the holistic education to an exciting learning experience.

The Star of David symbol was the formal inspiration for the design. The inner shape- created from the intersection of the two triangles- is a hexagon, a shape with universal values.

The library space is attractive to children that would constantly refresh and continue to captivate their interest in books, in reading and in learning, Image Courtesy © Tal Nisim

Roof and Rectangular House in Tomakomai, Japan by Jun Igarashi Architects

Sunday, September 17th, 2017

Article source: Jun Igarashi Architects

I keep on design activities in Hokkaido, so most of my projects ran there. By designing in a remarkably cold, I continued thinking on response to completely different contexts from other areas. They are mainly “cold” and “snow”. Of course there are other various things to deal with, but these contexts have the great impact. In this state, I felt the possibility of “a windbreak room” and thought about the expansion and diversity.
