Article source:  SUPERFUTUREDESIGN   

The exhibition is located in the atrium among the laboratories of the Borouge Innovation Center; the atrium is now clearly divided into two parts by a vertical connection block.

Courtyard House in Bangalore, India by Abin Design Studio

Friday, September 25th, 2015

Article source: Abin Design Studio

We first met our client, Mr. TG Sathyanarayanan, when he lived in Thailand. He had been abroad for many years and he came across as a person updated on a modern lifestyle. When he decided to move back to India, we proposed a concept for his villa – one that was ‘rooted’ and connected to the soil. His appreciation for the same revealed to us his very Indian ethos.

Residence in Paderborn, Germany by Architekten Wannenmacher +Möller GmbH

Friday, September 25th, 2015

Article source: Architekten Wannenmacher +Möller GmbH

The House for a family with a child was completed in 2010 and is located on a busy street in a residential area of the Central German city of Paderborn. In accordance with the predominant development in this area (existing development of the environment), the one-and-a-half storey building has a gabled roof, thereby deliberately integrating typologically into the existing neighbourhood. The House is accessed over a gravel-covered introverted courtyard, which is closed off from the adjacent road by a concrete wall. Also the garage is accessed through the courtyard. It was designed in a way that it merges with the house and is barely noticeable.

Next to the chapel in Sterzing, Italy by Bergmeisterwolf architekten

Friday, September 25th, 2015

Article source: Bergmeisterwolf architekten 

The project is situated in a little village, above Sterzing, on a height of 1.400m above sea-level. Out of a farmhouse with an old oven (made of stone) which were both fit for demolition, a new holiday residence of the Brunner family should arise. Together with the historical chapel an ensemble on the mountain should come into existence. It was important for us to integrate a place to live, a sauna, a garage and a henhouse into the landscape. All new buildings were inserted into the landscape without changing the topography. Design tools were the found, the discovered – the landscape as well as the remains of the old farmhouse like the stone wall and the traditional materials as for example the shingles from the chapel.

Eyrie vacation homes in Kaiwaka, New Zealand by Cheshire Architects

Friday, September 25th, 2015

Article source: Cheshire Architects 

Eyrie comprises two houses near Kaiwaka. Each is barely larger than four sheets of plywood. They are made from wood, are off-grid and autonomous, their outsides burnt black. This project is part polemic, part escape. Holiday homes have become this country’s decadence. Our sub-prime estuarine site permitted a 1500m² palace. It forbade two 29m² cabins. At night we talked excitedly about Malevich’s Suprematism; in the morning we got up and wrote legal submissions on visual density and the attrition of driveways. We wanted a different vision for New Zealand’s coastal future. In these houses a history of prismatic abstraction is conflated with a poetic of small boats bobbing in a sea of grass. There are no doors. One climbs up boulders and in through a window instead. We hoped that in subverting the shorthand language of building these little constructions might feel like something other than – and more than – houses.

SOCIAL HOUSING RESIDENCE in VAULX-EN-VELIN, FRANCE by PETITDIDIERPRIOUX ARCHITECTES

Friday, September 25th, 2015

Article source: PETITDIDIERPRIOUX ARCHITECTES

This new social housing residence comprising 92 apartments aims to replace the “Mas du Taureau” hostel which is programmed to be demolished. It is located in an urban development zone within which no other works have yet begun. Intended to house former migrant workers, single-parent families and isolated individuals, the residence must accompany a new page of their life and develop the identity of the future neighborhood. To favor the appropriation of the setting by its inhabitants and its acceptance by the neighbors, the architecture moves away from the codes that generally define the image held by hostels and particular care is taken inside the building to organize the routes of the residents. Laid out as a right angle, the building offers a vast interior garden. The assembly of three small buildings is a pleasant neighborhood scale and allowed the lessor to rehouse former neighbors on the basis of affinities. A specific approach is proposed for each side of the building: the north glazed façade provides transparency between street and garden, placing emphasis on the movements on the access decks. Vertical elements forming fins optimize the provision of natural light and enliven the façade. The rhythmic continuity and the effect of slightly offset projecting fascias assure the link between the two façades giving onto the streets.
