Article source: Carl-Viggo Hølmebakk AS ARKITEKTKONTOR

The cottage is situated 900 metres above sea level in a west facing hillside with a striking view towards the Rondane mountains. The site is lying on the back side of a vague elevation in the sloping landscape, which makes the ground slant “backwards”, away from the view. The elevation makes a beautiful foreground with a few pine trees and the ground covered with reindeer moss.

Learning Centre “Innovation”, Lille 1 University in Villeneuve d’Ascq, France by Auer Weber

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

Article source: Auer Weber

Forward-thinking education requires contemporary concepts, including renovation of university infrastructure, which the French ministry of education has provided extensive funding to expand. An important goal of these reforms is to rethink outdated learning concepts. Technical progress, as well as new methods of communication between teaching institutes (students and teaching bodies) and the public, begin to question the traditional form of scientific libraries. The new Learning Centre “Innovation” is part of a series of similar institutes tasked with stepping up to the new challenges and preparing for the future.

K15 in Düsseldorf, ‎Germany by Pier7 Architekten

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

Article source: Pier7 Architekten

Transformation – WHEN REBUILDING BECOMES RETHINKING.

Thinking and planning provocatively.

Building into the existing context of a hillside was a challenge, which Pier7 confronted with simplicity and clarity. Guiding the light through the building and meticulously considering every detail was of utmost importance. The brief called for a one storey house towards the street, typical for this residential area in Düsseldorf. By cleverly offsetting the facade a scale floor is inserted, thus creating the illusion of a one storey building. As the building evolves towards the garden, the volumes are carved into the Hillside and the house becomes two and three storeys tall. The facade opens up towards a panoramic green landscape and simultaneously offers privacy. This allows for a private pool and a two level terrace. The ground level opens up towards the garden thus becoming one with nature. In the evening an ambient illumination adds a special touch to the facade and trees.

Adams Fleming House in Toronto, Canada by LGA Architectural Partners

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

Article source: LGA Architectural Partners

On a street of historic, working-class cottages in Toronto’s west end, adjacent to a railway line and a supermarket parking lot, a vacant auto-body shop may have seemed like an unlikely impetus for a residence with a domestic character. The clients—Debbie Adams, a graphic designer, and Peter Fleming, a furniture designer/craftsman—had a limited budget but considerable talent and resources. Working with Levitt Goodman Architects, the project became a laboratory for artistic collaboration and experimentation. Over several years they have transformed the industrial site into an artful urban oasis.
