House with a doma Salon in Ehime, Japan by Takashi Okuno Architectural design office

Friday, July 29th, 2016

Article source: Takashi Okuno Architectural design office

The house is located in the suburbs of Matsuyama, a northwestern city of Shikoku, a region famous for ohenro, or the Shikoku pilgrimage. The structure is very long and narrow, extending north to south.

It is the home of a gregarious and energetic elderly mother and her daughter who values the practice of cooking meals slowly and intentionally, along with two cautious cats.

Boulogne B4A in France by Brenac & Gonzalez

Friday, July 29th, 2016

Article source: Brenac & Gonzalez 

Among the buildings composing macro-lot B4, B4A takes on an iconic image, the star shape of which owes everything to its location.

Standing at the tip of an acute angle at the intersection of rue Marcel Bontemps and Cours Emile Zola, its volumes focus all of its 95 accommodations around 3 vertical openings. To develop maximum linearity of the façade, the building is hollowed out and turns its façades to the best exposures. This striving for light engenders sculptural shapes where the recessed façade and alignment with the street express a continual organic movement.The wide balconies that ring the building on every floor underscore each floor with a line, like so many piled up layers. These platters rise in stacks to compose a graphic system of undulating lines that amplify its volumes. On a scale with Cours Emile Zola, it looks like an event in the city, also reflecting quality use of the outside spaces for each apartment. The building’s exterior skin is composed of fine float-finished plaster. In contrast the façades of the access balconies are clad in wooden panels, thus putting an accent on the domestic nature of their use.

La Shed in Montréal, Canada by La SHED Architecture

Wednesday, July 27th, 2016

Article source: v2com

Located in what used to be a Plateau-Mont-Royal general store, la Shed preserves the area’s vernacular architecture while adopting a resolutely contemporary appearance that reflects the company’s image.

The workshop and adjacent meeting space are completely open and the glass façade allows passers-by to observe the architects at work. Halfway between an office and a boutique, the space redefines the traditional architect’s office. The original building’s structure, located at the center of the office, is highlighted by its neon color scheme. On one side of the office is a large white block that contains the meeting room, kitchen and stationery. The central block on the other side of the office is divided into a materials library that harkens back to the general store’s shelving units. These shelves allow light to filter through to the meeting room that is isolated by a frosted glass wall. The wood paneling, table trestles, lighting and choice of accessories combine to provide the workshop with a casual, collegial and well thought out atmosphere.

Synergy

The KRONA Knowledge and Cultural Centre enhances Kongsberg’s cultural institutions and stimulates interaction between diverse communities and disciplines. Comprised of a variety of functions, KRONA houses new teaching and technical laboratory facilities for Buskerud University College and Tinius Olsen Technical Vocational College, as well as a technical university library. The complex also includes a public library, cinemas, municipal offices and a theatre auditorium. Its functions are organised around a central void with shared functions, enhancing flexibility and reducing programme redundancy. Using subtle landscape elevations and strategically locating programme access points, visitors intuitively gravitate towards the Centre. Throughout the interior spaces, strong visual connections to public functions further enhance the liveliness of the complex.
