Ultramodern Casa Son Vida in Mallorca, Spain by Marcel Wanders studio

Thursday, December 8th, 2016

Article source: Marcel Wanders studio

Roots are attached to tradition but trees are directions to the future.

The first full residential project of Marcel Wanders, the 850m2 residence embodies Marcels’ vision in each of its curved corners. The conversion and extension of the Mediterranean sixties villa, gave birth to a friendly meeting between old and new. The subtle mix of classical and modern references is visible through the entire villa, from the classic profiled wall lining the curved space to the newly custom designed cupboards in straight yet classic lines. A unique atmosphere emerges as space is turning into a playground for reliefs and surfaces. House of contrasts and love between past and present, Casa Son Vida is “unavoidably exuberant and unabashedly outrageous.”

VILLA MONTFOORT in The Netherlands by Station-D Architects

Thursday, December 8th, 2016

Article source: Station-D Architects

Both man and woman for whom we designed the villa have young children from a previous relationship. Our client’s desire was to build a house that would facilitate the coming together of those two families. This resulted in a design with separate functions for each family and common meeting places for both families. Each family has its own entrance hall, living room, bathroom and toilet and bedroom area. The main hall and spacious kitchen are set up as common spaces and planned as the heart of Villa Montfoort.

The location alone of this single family home in Rechberg, with a clear view of the surrounding is quiet spectacular.

The property is located on the slope of a green meadow. A floating design and the use of natural materials using concrete, copper, glass and wood as structural material characterize the single family home. Besides the structural members that establish contact with the ground, the rest of the house is constructed out of wood.

Vision

Frederiksbjerg School is the first new-built school located in the center of Aarhus, the second largest city in Denmark, in approximately 100 years.

The new school, which also houses a daycare facility and a youth club, is built on the site of former school, Sct. Annagades School. For decades Sct. Annagades School was a well-established gathering place for the local community. This lead to a vision of the new school building supporting the old memoir.
