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.

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.

Esker House in San Candido, Italy by Plasma Studio

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

Article source: Plasma Studio

Esker Haus (Esker = Stratified geological formation) is a self-contained residential unit placed on top of an existing house from the 1960s. The project has been developed as a parasite which adopts the structure of its host and gradually distorts it to fit a unique organization and morphology. The apartment is formed by a series of steel and timber frames that deform to recreate the smooth hillsides of the surrounding Dolomites. This partly accessible roofscape also determines the spatial character inside; the spaces unfold through a series of angular and dynamic planes creating ever-changing perspectives and spatial constellations.

Article source: MSWW Ministerstwo Spraw We Wnetrzach 

Grand Oak House is a story in which a key role was played by the beautiful oak wood … Wood left a legacy by his grandfather … That it set the tone for the color and mood of meaning to the interior. Table of Elements woodwork and many other furniture – stores the memory of the people and the time that is behind us. And the contemporary environment of concrete, steel, gray and patterns subtly interacts with the past enchanted in oak jars. There does not end with reference to nature; both bathrooms and bedrooms are continuing a dialogue with nature. Forest, meadows and animals remind us of the continuity of our natural heritage.
