Observation house in Bulgaria by I/O architects

Friday, November 6th, 2015

Article source: I/O architects

The house is located on a hill in the highest corner of a village amid an agricultural area in Northeast Bulgaria.

The site of the project is distinguished both by its panoramic views and distant visibility. In order to strengthen them, a part of the program is located in the seemingly blind bastion-like volume and the living area is elevated high on it. This brings view completion up to 360 degree and privacy in the fully opened space above. The pitched roof connects geometrically the upper volume with the base and adds complexity in the interior space while the oversized eaves connect it to the little meadow around and exaggerate the hovering effect of the slim metal structure. The proportion and the materiality of the solid base give it the appearance of an infrastructural object that define the edge of the village and conceal the ambitious program of the house. The only perforation leads to the cave like space of the entrance hall / garage. The materiality of the interior spaces is dominated by local species wood cladding, which balances the roughness of the entire structure and its surroundings.

Apart from its mere built container, a school is nothing more than a place where teaching and learning take place. This project, therefore, reflects the desire to interact with the city, revealing the flows and activities that occur within the immediate environment of the site.

Renovation and expansion of BLKB Arlesheim in Switzerland by Nissen Wentzlaff Architekten

Wednesday, November 4th, 2015

Article source: Nissen Wentzlaff Architekten

The property is located in the historical heart of the municipality of Arlesheim. The plan was to renovate the existing building from the 1970s and add on a small extension. The main reason behind the building work was the decision to move the bank’s entrance to the north-east side onto Bachweg. In doing so, the existing arcade features had to be retained. The two-storey passageway creates a spacious entrance to the bank and is flooded with light. The new construction was deliberately rotated outward slightly from the building lines of the façade.
