Villa S in Bergen, Norway by Saunders Architecture

Thursday, October 29th, 2015

Article source:  Saunders Architecture

Describing his latest project, a house for his own family in a leafy suburb of Bergen, Todd Saunders says, ‘It’s like three sticks, stacked on top of each other.’ At a stretch, the analogy holds – the house is composed of three woodclad elements, one vertical, two horizontal – but it’s far more accurate to describe it as a strictly functional composition.

Company office building for Immoquatro in Gent, Belgium by BURO II & ARCHI+I

Tuesday, October 27th, 2015

Article source: BURO II & ARCHI+I

How architecture improves the quality of the daily work

Around 25 staff is working for Accountancy Service in the new office building.
The plot has a level difference across twelve meters: the garden lies approximately 90cm lower than the front garden strip at street level. This natural slope was incorporated into the design for the new office building. It was decided not to use the garden for parking; parking is accommodated below the building. By raising the volume of the new structure marginally from street level, space was created without the need for a deep excavation. This allows all-round daylight to penetrate the car and bicycle parking level and gives the impression that the building is floating.
