Tevfik Fikret Elementary School in Istanbul, Turkey by Öney Architecture

Thursday, July 20th, 2017

Article source: Öney Architecture

Already providing service in the garden of Tevfik Fikret Primary School located in Bebek neighborhood of Besiktas district in Istanbul, the nursery unit, which fails to satisfy the needs is projected to be replaced with a nursery that can operate independent from the primary school. An area located next to the entrance gate of the school has been allocated for this function, which is restricted with the retaining wall formed by the elevation difference of the neighboring parcel on the west side and the school land on the north side. A double layered facade has been planned in order to meet the illumination need for education and whereas to reduce the heat effect in the summer months. The area remaining between these layers have been planned as a garden where students can grow plants. The entrance of the building, which is planned as two-stored, is projected at the 1/3 axis of its long side. The entrance area has been considered as cloakroom and reception. A semi-closed play ground has been created at the roadside of the building. The second floor of the structure includes two classrooms and wet areas. The classrooms have been projected on the upper floor in order to avoid the noise from the road as well as the school garden. The top of the circulation area has been projected to be transparent in order to make use of the structure in depth especially in the education season when day light is relatively less.

Residence 100% in São Paulo, Brazil by Rogerio Gama Arquitetura

Wednesday, July 19th, 2017

Article source: Rogerio Gama Arquitetura

I called this project 100% Residency, because all the land, even in its green area, it has a function.
This, was elaborated as a collaboration for a student of mine, of the course of Civil Engineering, in college that I taught. Therefore, I elaborated in metallic structure, for it to be already getting accustomed and having an already real project, a detail of this bevelled structure, so it already improves its knowledge. And the apparent concrete in the rest.

Quartier du Parc, Reimerwee in Kirchberg, Luxembourg by AllesWirdGut

Wednesday, July 19th, 2017

Article source: AllesWirdGut 

In Kirchberg / Luxembourg AllesWirdGut build an ensemble of two large and two smaller buildings accommodating a total of 110 apartments.

The stretched-out buildings in the Quartier du Parc in Kirchberg, Luxembourg, are situated on the northeastern edge of a development area. The northwestern side is bounded by Konrad Adenauer Boulevard. On the south side, the ensemble opens to Parc Reimerwee. Due to their orientation and different rental systems, the two volumes are seen as “fraternal twins”. Together, they make a strong duo that have certain things in common on the outside, while their interiors are different.

Tennyson Point Residence in Sydney, Australia by CplusC Architectural Workshop

Article source: CplusC Architectural Workshop

Working within the bones of a solid, well-constructed water front home built in the ‘60s on Sydney’s Parramatta River, the adaptive reuse of this multi-level dwelling involved removing the entirety of the internal workings of the existing structure, re-invigorating the central circulation core, promoting light and cross ventilation while embracing the waterfront outlook to the North West.

HOUSE IN THE DUNE in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Luciano Kruk

Wednesday, July 19th, 2017

Article source: Luciano Kruk

The House in the Dune is located in The Coast Disctrict, in a seaside neighborhood 13 km north of the city of Pinamar and four hours away from Buenos Aires.

Lying on a curved cul-de-sac, the site is a trapezoid with its widest side at the back. Originally, even though it lacked tree vegetation (particularly pines, which are typical in The Coast District), the land seemed impenetrable, completely covered as it was with acacias.

Casas Neptuno in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Estudio Galera Arquitectura

Wednesday, July 19th, 2017

Article source: Estudio Galera Arquitectura

In a small flat lot and without vegetation, four similar rental homes have been designed. A common path connects the street with the entrance to each house and concrete benches are placed creating a common space, a place for relaxation. To the west, the barbecue area and decks are located. These houses provide maximum natural light due to the use of floor to ceiling openings and as a result, the reflection of light can reach every corner of the houses. Cross ventilation to cool the rooms minimizes the use of air conditioners.
