9 Subsidized Row Houses in Murcia, Spain by Mariano Molina and Sergio Carrillo

Thursday, June 16th, 2016

Article source: Mariano Molina and Sergio Carrillo 

The project is located at a small village in the North area of the municipality of Lorca (Murcia), inhabited by some 150 people, and belongs to a plan developed by the city council to promote the permanence of young people at their hometowns. Designing a project with this purpose made us think, in the first place, about the idea of belonging to a roughly defined group- in this particular case the young people from Las Terreras- but expressing, in the second place, the individuality of each of its members.

Benelong Crescent Apartments in Sydney, Australia by Luigi Rosselli Pty Ltd – Architects

Thursday, June 16th, 2016

Article source: Luigi Rosselli Pty Ltd – Architects 

Benelong Crescent apartments are inspired by the sinuous forms of Erich Mendelsohn’s Einstein Tower in Potsdam, completed in the 1920’s. The apartments cascade down the hill to follow the contours and the curved terraced balconies are shaped by the irregular boundaries of the site, rounded off by the prevailing winds.

Ferienhaus in Crucoli, Italy by studioeuropa

Thursday, June 16th, 2016

Article source: studioeuropa

The 19th century building rests on a hill in Crucoli, a small Italian hilltown above the Ionic Sea. The old quarry stone house is squeezed into the organic urban structure and sits right on the steep edge of the hill. This specific situation provides the house with a terrific view into the Sila mountains and defines the spatial layout. So technical improvements went together with the reorganzation of rooms.

FLAT COPPER in Paris, France by BADIA BERGER Architectes

Thursday, June 16th, 2016

Article source: BADIA BERGER Architectes

In the urban landscape of northeast Paris, the project sits at the crossroads of several transport networks : the major artery Boulevard Mac Donald, the Parisian beltway, the canal Saint-Denis, and the railway axis leading to the Gare de l’Est train station.

By virtue of its verticality and the autonomy of its form, the building signals and highlights the intersection of these diverse networks. Veritable visual landmark, it marks the alignment of the canal from the confines of Saint-Denis to Aubervilliers. As seen from the Port of Aubervilliers, it constitutes a background to the large thoroughfare of Boulevard Mac Donald.

The Opal in Copenhagen, Denmark by Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter

Wednesday, June 15th, 2016

Article source: Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter 

Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter has won the competition to design an extension to the existing headquarters of The Danish Society of Engineers, IDA. “The Opal” is technological advanced and a true eye catcher. It will be prominently placed in the Copenhagen Harbour.

The building is named “The Opal”, which refers to the oval gemstone that reflects all colours of the spectrum. The reference is evident in both form and structure. The new landmark will have a similar play of colours when the water is reflected in its skin and through projected lights in the facade.
