Tuesday, May 26th, 2015

Article source: BARBERMcMURRY architects

Located in East Tennessee, Contemporary Women’s Health is a unique all-women physicians group dedicated to providing OBGYN services which incorporate the latest medical trends set in a comfortable, ultra-modern environment. The practice is focused on providing patient support for a healthy mind, body, and spirit. In 2013, BarberMcMurry architects was approached by the practice to help design a new facility to embody their mission located approximately 15 miles west of Knoxville in East Tennessee. The client asked that the new building convey their values by creating a coherent building manifested in a modern, calming, light filled environment. Located between two major bisecting interstate highways, the site is situated for maximum visibility from passing traffic. The location is also strategically placed near a regional medical center that the practice serves. Adjacent parcels to the south remain dotted with single story residential houses, while lots immediately to the north and east remain mainly vegetated.

New Belgrade Fountain in Serbia by Studio Alfirevic

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015

Article source: Studio Alfirevic

Fountain is located in front of the municipal building in New Belgrade (Serbia), designed in brutalism expression (Arch. Stojan Maksimovic and Branislav Jovin). The design of the fountain is an allegory of the time and the process of New Belgrade formation, as one of the most important modernist city parts of the former socialist Yugoslavia. In a contemporary way fountain evokes the appearance of the first collective housing buildings, which were erected in the area that was formed in the draining and filling wetlands process. Reduced visual expression, materialized in a minimalist manner, almost at the level of primordial symbols, is a reminiscence of extensive construction and architectural operations, which are conducted in order to form a new part of Belgrade, which was the capital of Yugoslavia.

PEDREGAL HOUSE by Garza Iga Arquitectos

Sunday, May 24th, 2015

Article source: Garza Iga Arquitectos

The house sits atop a hill that overlooks the city, this was the main argument we had to put the two main bedrooms facing forward. The bedrooms are two separate volumes that intersect the main concrete “shell” of the house, the front and back are kept open with huge glass walls; to let the most sunlight in at the back side, and to observe the view at the front.

House in Kamisawa, Japan by Tato Architects

Sunday, May 24th, 2015

Article source: Tato Architects

This building is a reconfiguration of a traditional Japanese wooden house. Its wooden frames were exposed after the removal of unnecessary parts. Only by inserting curved walls into it, spatial functions were created. A similar challenge was experienced in the process of designing “Hut with the Arc Wall”, a public toilet in Shodoshima. There, space was defined by a 9mm steel curved wall, which was built under the wooden roof structure by reference to traditional soy sauce factories in that area. An inspiration from cedar barrels of say source was formalized in the curved wall, which showed an aesthetic of self- supporting structure. The only thing to be regrettable was newly built wooden frames. Ideally, it should have been moved from an old house around that area and rebuilt in a new place, but the required tight schedule didn’t allow us to spend time to look for a suitable existing building. However, since then, we have seen it as a distinctive potential for reconfigurations to divide space with curved walls, which is not related to the outer structure.

The table and the black shed organize the gallery space of BWA Design in Wrocław for an exhibition on Food Think Tank project ‘Earth and Water’. The objects are made of remains from previous gallery exhibitions and scraps from conservation works of Wrocław’s Parks and Recreation department – branches and stumps.
