“A world-level development was implemented in 2015 on the Kassai út campus of Debrecen University within the scope of the project entitled “Super Computing (HPC) in Higher Education”, as a result of collaboration between the National Information Infrastructure Development Institute (NIIFI) and the Debrecen University Faculties.
A children’s museum in essence should be a space that encourages children’s mind and produce a sense of discovery by playing. That’s why the concept of Labyrinth of Crete arises as the starting point for the Children’s Museum – Iztapalapa.
The city of Jacou’s wedding hall and municipal room project needed to be rethought at the crossroads of several axes and scales. The aim was to change the use of an existing building located in the town center. In order to fully integrate these new functions and to establish a strong link between the city hall and the marriage hall, a consistency of materiality has been set up in this project. The interventions on the ground and the facades have been proportionate to the respect of an harmonious work, focussing on the balance between heritage and contemporary creation. Thus, this new program is associated with a generous public space accessible to everyone.
The house is located in a privileged area of ground in terms of views, orientation, etc.. so the shape of the house adapts to the existing, respecting the existence of a large rock cliff and a number of native trees. Both the shape of the house as its program does not serve the purpose of intervening the natural landscape. that is why the house is composed of two volumes connected by a bridge way around the rock and adapt to the position of the trees.
The main floor sits at garden level. It contains the common spaces, beginning with a view balcony at the front of the house that extends from the living room, back to a large, kitchen/dining area that opens to rear, outdoor living spaces.
The plot itself filled with lush large trees and its profile have dictated the evolution of the design concept. A careful study of the site, levels and the root structure of the trees leaves limited areas for development of the R&D center. It is this study that first drove us into demolishing the existing house along with the following reasons:
Aesthetically unsuitable for a modern R&D lab.
Large area available without trees.
Possibility of construction of a basement + upper floors to optimize built-up area.
The mere fact that the gearwheel factory is still there, right in the old centre of Amsterdam, makes the building special. This warehouse from the early 20th century, with its sawtooth roof and brick walls overgrown with ivy, is like a green oasis in the city. The building has now been transformed by architect Ronald Janssen in cooperation with Donald Osborne Architect into twelve residences, in commission from real estate developer Buro Amsterdam.
Our intention for these three blocks, which were doomed to a standardized housing estate operation, was to recreate an integrated part of the town, rich in different lifestyles and strong in terms of developing a neighborhood.
This work is the result of a process that began in 2004 with the construction of a summer house in the forest of Mar Azul.It was necessary to intervene in a territory of great scenic beauty, owner of a powerful wild presence that is gradually becoming domesticated due to the proliferation of houses with a formal search from bucolic to picturesque which in nothing refers to that environment or to this present .
