The Regional Council of Judea District in Beit Shemesh, Israel by YBGSNA

Saturday, September 24th, 2016

Article source: YBGSNA

Our proposal for the new Regional Council of Building of the District of Judea is based on a balance between our desire to insert a modest intervention in the landscape and a need to design a public building with a substantial formal presence. The relatively large lot (almost 20 dunam) and the modest program, led us to divide the areas into three building masses: a formal “cube” at the upper road with two wings at the lower road, embracing a public plaza.

Saturday, September 24th, 2016

Article source: Agraz Arquitectos

In the search to create an architectural piece that comes from innovative forms and finds -in that quest- the paths to perpetuate this condition, Ricardo Agraz and Karina Castro combine efforts and imagination. The result is [ PC ] House, a dwelling based and tailor made for a family program that takes the land as the perfect frame for doing so: it takes the river’s length for self adaptation.

And once this natural environment is tamed, the structure is used to contain it within the house, entering the backyard towards the living room and dinning room.

Apartment in Poznan, Poland by PL.architekci

Friday, September 23rd, 2016

Article source: PL.architekci

The starting point in creating the interior was the investor’s collection of paintings, antique furniture and extensive library of books. The apartment was divided and furnished in order to expose these items, but in such a way that they do not compete and do not dominate the space. All the new furniture pieces are very minimalistic and free of any visible details. The books have been closed in double-sided bookcases, which also serve as separators of the communication area and they also contain a bio fireplace and a TV set. The kitchen was also designed in a minimalistic way and all the appliances have been hidden in closets.

KuBe House of Culture and Movement in Frederiksberg, Denmark by MVRDV and ADEPT

Friday, September 23rd, 2016

Article source: MVRDV

Today Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark will open the Ku.Be House of Culture and Movement, an activity hub in Frederiksberg, Denmark, which explores the boundaries between culture, health and movement. The project, designed by MVRDV and ADEPT, is the first of its typology; a community space which also focuses on exploring and developing our most fundamental process, movement. Ku.Be facilitates both fixed, and spontaneous programmes. Main volumes define specific tempos of activities, whereas voids are left without a defined use to let users interpret them how they wish and discover new ways to use and get around the building. The activity from inside then spills out into the community as a garden which will offer a variety of interactive environments.
