Harbor Houses in Aarhus, Denmark by Adept

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

Article source: Adept

Common greenhouses on the roof tops, adjacent terraces overlooking the bay of Aarhus, and a sheltered green courtyard. This is the essence of the Harbor Houses, a new residential complex in the port of Aarhus, which breaks with both the port’s massive scale, and present iconic building tendencies. The project consists of 262 public dwellings distributed between 83 apartments for families and +55 aged seniors, as well as 179 student-housing units.

145 housing units + FAM + PMI in Paris, France by Avenier Cornejo Architectes

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

Article source: Avenier Cornejo Architectes

Jumps of scale to understand the place

The site is integrated into the multi-urban network of Paris, the Grande Couronne and major green spaces and infrastructure networks. The ZAC Clichy-Batignolles is perceived as a new landscape of connection, a wide-open urban door along the major territorial arches towards the historic city.

The site becomes an important urban platform, an exchange node inserted into the system of great Parisian relational spaces. It holds a role of transition between different scales, them being territorial, urban, environmental, social, cultural, and infrastructure standpoints. The ZAC thus acts as a device of resonance and multi-district transfer.

VILLA ASTRID in Gothenburg, Sweden by Wingårdh Arkitektkontor AB

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

Article source: Wingårdh Arkitektkontor AB 

I designed Villa Astrid in the summer of 2002 and Karin completed the details and made improvements throughout the autumn. The site was tucked between two houses and consisted mainly of rugged and fairly steep rock. The detailed plans specified eaves of maximum 3.5 metres high and a roof slope of 14 to 27 degrees. My client had a construction programme for a two-storey building. The answer was to sink the upper floor. That sounds easy, but it took several weeks to design.

CH-REURBANO in Mexico City by Cadaval & Solà-Morales

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

Article source: Cadaval & Solà-Morales

The project seeks to maintain the existing building as much as possible, as well as enhancing the value of its inherent construction properties. The proposal intends to broaden the official proposed conservation plan by committing to preservation international standards, where preservation goes beyond the façade and undertakes virtually the whole building. The idea is to go even further of the maintenance of the existing structure; the project seeks to preserve its ‘essence’. All the new additional construction elements are set up in harmony within the space, being discreet and allowing the prevailing to stand out.

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.

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.
