Casa PLS in Pordenone, Italy by corde architetti associati

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015

Article source: corde architetti associati 

It’s a contemporary building hiding its wooden soul: a core of cross laminated timber hidden under a white smooth skin. Architectural rules are decomposed by one single starting action: the ridge beam has been moved from its traditional position and it’s now laying diagonally on a classic rectangular plan. The result is a really different structure from standard wooden houses.

TURTAGRØ HOTEL in Sognefjellet, Norway by Jarmund/Vigsnæs AS Architects MNAL

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

Article source: Jarmund/Vigsnæs AS Architects MNAL

The old Turtagrø Hotel, which has been the starting point for climbing in the Hurrungane Mountains for more than a hundred years, burned down in 2001. The owner wanted to create some of the atmosphere of the old building – a recognisable scale, spatial sequence, colours and materials, relating to a nearby timber annex. Outside of this the requirement was for a hotel with a new architectonic expression and an efficient layout.

Article source: Ellenamehl architects

Located at the center of the Saint-Jean district, on the high plains of Beauvais, the “House for Solidarity” is located on the former Agel military base. Erected after the 1870 war, this 12 hectares former military site has been a wasteland since 1993, pending an ambitious urban project. The renewal of the district, that is now well underway, aims at creating urban continuity, opening up the area to the city, reducing social problems with new equipments, a wider range of dwellings and local services.

COOP Supermarket in Pordenone, Italy by Corde Architetti Associati

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

Article source: Corde Architetti Associati 

The risk one may run in adding a new commercial building in the centre of a small village is to subvert balances and prevail on the existing. This is intended to be a different kind of approach compared with the usual box-shaped shopping centre: an aggregation of volumes with different heights and rough concrete panelling attempts to confront with the old urban pattern. The massive presence of vegetation, both trees and climbers, is the unpredictable element guided by time and seasons as a moment of mediation.

The Mango House in Alibaug, India by Puran Kumar Architects

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

Article source: Puran Kumar Architects

The Mango House is the physical manifestation of a quest to connect with the natural environment. The essence of design here is simplicity in thought and expression through the form, material and décor of the structure. The organic nature of the construction successfully connects the outside with the inside and thus manages to convey an earthy feel through its free-flowing plan. The house is a blend of various elements & building materials that are ‘azonic’, lending simplicity to the design.

Arnhem Central Transfer Terminal in The Netherlands by UNStudio

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

Article source: UNStudio

The new €37.5m (£27.6m) Transfer Terminal at Arnhem Central Station in the Netherlands has now completed.

The station is the result of an ambitious 20-year project – masterplanned by UNStudio – to redevelop the wider station area; the largest post-war development in Arnhem. Backed by the Dutch government, this transfer hub rewrites the rulebook on train stations and is the most complex of its type in Europe. The station will become the new ‘front door’ of the city, embracing the spirit of travel, and is expected to establish Arnhem as an important node between Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium. The new terminal houses commercial areas, and a conference centre and provides links to the nearby office plaza, city centre, underground parking garage and the Park Sonsbeek. The area around the station will become a place in of itself, with 160,000m2 of offices, shops and a cinema complex.
