Living under the roof in Lvry-sur-Seine, France by Prisca Pellerin Architecture & Intérieur

Sunday, May 1st, 2016

Article source: Prisca Pellerin Architecture & Intérieur

Presentation

This project is a complete renovation of an apartment 2-room attic. To enhance the quality of light of that “cocoon” housing, the bias has been to open up the spaces (decompartmentalisation, amplified perspectives, transparency of Parisian artist window frame… ) and playing on different shades of white and grey, specially thanks to different textures : glossy lacquer, matt and satin paint, polished concrete, leather and suede, linen, brick , white wood stain…

Franz Kafka Society Center in Prague, Czech Republic by STEVEN HOLL ARCHITECTS

Sunday, May 1st, 2016

Article source: STEVEN HOLL ARCHITECTS

The basement of the small one-story building, formerly used for laundry and storage, now houses a space for exhibitions, lectures, and concerts, as well as it accommodates Franz Kafka’s private library. On the first level of the building the Franz Kafka Society has located its offices. The previously dark and dismal spaces of the building are now washed in daylight coming through newly inserted windows and skylights that provide unexpected views to the towers of the Maisel Synagogue. Marcela Steinbachová (Skupina) and Steven Holl Architects have deliberately situated these windows off axis to the interiors. Inside the building new visual connections through openings and inspection holes give its small spaces depth and create visual connections.

KitaF in Berlin, Germany by JAN RÖSLER ARCHITEKTEN

Transformation of a video library to a 750 m2 nursery.

The one storey building of a former video library is – except of one longitudinal side – surrounded by soil. The original floor plan with its polygon shape and its unusual depth turns daylight to the essential aspect of the design concept.

Ljubljana apartment in Slovenia by SoNo arhitekti

Friday, April 29th, 2016

Article source: SoNo arhitekti

This older larger apartment is located in the city center of Ljubljana. The client’s wish was to transform an existing residential space into an open, modern and at the same time a comfortable and a functional home. We have created a central living area where the furniture elements, despite their uniform appearance form two distinct ambiances, but also connect to the smaller intimate atrium. Along the main dividing wall the kitchen elements are located and they subtly convert into the fireplace that sensibly rounds up the entire residential space. Playfully arranged furniture elements which are otherwise clean simple geometric shapes achieve a more sensible integration of the existing walls as well as a more reasonable organization of the space itself. Smaller cramped rooms now are logically linked and more spacious and thus create a better feeling of living.

Children’s Culture House Ama’r in Copenhagen, Denmark by Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter

Friday, April 29th, 2016

Article source: Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter

The Children’s Culture House offers various play facilities and programmes for children of all ages.

Located on a street corner, the structure mediates between the adjoining brick buildings, which are of different height. In it’s form and use of materials, however, the centre is quite distinct. A silvery aluminium skin, perforated by square windows is drawn over the roof and outer walls and the lower height at the corner allows sunlight to enter the rear courtyard. The expression of the Children’s Culture House is surprising and imaginative: the roof and facades are treated the same, and the House does not have a “start” and “end” as ordinary houses do.
