Article source: MM++ architects 

This house is located in district 7 in Saigon, on a busy street. The plot is 4m wide X 17m deep.
The streets in Vietnamese city centers are vibrant, full of life and these shophouses are part of that urban landscape, where boundaries between the public and the private are blurry.

The offices of the Castilla León Junta in Zamora, Spain by Estudio Arquitectura Campo Baeza

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015

Article source: Estudio Arquitectura Campo Baeza 

Facing the cathedral and following the outline of the former convent’s kitchen garden, we erect a strong stone wall box open to the sky. Its walls and floors entirely   made of stone. The very same stone as the Cathedral. A real Hortus Conclusus. In the corner facing the cathedral, a massive stone measuring 250x150x50 cm, a veritable Cornerstone. And chiselled on that stone.

The Crystal in Copenhagen, Denmark by Schmidt hammer lassen architects

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015

Article source: Schmidt hammer lassen architects

The extension to Nykredit consists of a new building – the Crystal – sited northwest of the existing Nykredit premises. Freestanding on the site, it reads as a transparent, geometrical, glazed form which, resting only on a single point and a single line, floats as a visually light, crystalline structure above the plaza.

Casa PLS in Pordenone, Italy by corde architetti associati

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015

Article source: corde architetti associati 

It’s a contemporary building hiding its wooden soul: a core of cross laminated timber hidden under a white smooth skin. Architectural rules are decomposed by one single starting action: the ridge beam has been moved from its traditional position and it’s now laying diagonally on a classic rectangular plan. The result is a really different structure from standard wooden houses.

TURTAGRØ HOTEL in Sognefjellet, Norway by Jarmund/Vigsnæs AS Architects MNAL

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

Article source: Jarmund/Vigsnæs AS Architects MNAL

The old Turtagrø Hotel, which has been the starting point for climbing in the Hurrungane Mountains for more than a hundred years, burned down in 2001. The owner wanted to create some of the atmosphere of the old building – a recognisable scale, spatial sequence, colours and materials, relating to a nearby timber annex. Outside of this the requirement was for a hotel with a new architectonic expression and an efficient layout.

House for solidarity in Beauvais, France by Ellenamehl architects

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

Article source: Ellenamehl architects

Located at the center of the Saint-Jean district, on the high plains of Beauvais, the “House for Solidarity” is located on the former Agel military base. Erected after the 1870 war, this 12 hectares former military site has been a wasteland since 1993, pending an ambitious urban project. The renewal of the district, that is now well underway, aims at creating urban continuity, opening up the area to the city, reducing social problems with new equipments, a wider range of dwellings and local services.
