Öhringen Petting Zoo in Germany by Kresings Architektur GmbH

Sunday, November 1st, 2015

Article source: Kresings Architektur GmbH

Train of thoughts

The ensemble’s formal shape interacts strongly with its particular use as well as with its urban context. The exposed site, which is situated in the southern portion of the “Schlossgarten” and in the immediate vicinity of the pond, allows the two volumes of the buildings in combination with the fence to be conveyed easily. Also multiple views from all directions are offered to people walking by and in especially to the little visitors to the petting zoo.

Newly built double pre-school facility in Wiesendangen, Switzerland by SINGER BAENZIGER ARCHITEKTEN

Sunday, November 1st, 2015

Article source: SINGER BAENZIGER ARCHITEKTEN 

This double pre-school or kindergarten facility and a recently completed gym serve as extensions of the school grounds to the east.

Separated from the surrounding single-family homes, the pre-school building reflects the orientation of the existing school structures. The staggered construction produces an entrance area with plenty of sunlight and a shady and well-protected outside space at the back of the building. The main entrance is covered and slightly set back.

Wooden Box House in Saitama, Japan by Suzuki architects

Sunday, November 1st, 2015

Article source: Suzuki architects

A house-cum-office for the mother who runs a local hair salon, and for the father who works as a writer for 40 years. On the first floor, there is a salon and a dressing/sleeping room in the back for the mother. When windows are open, wind goes through the large space under the eaves facing the town. Lively activities arising here will add energy to the town. On the second floor, there is a writing/sleeping room for the father where he can enjoy the landscape of the next garden, and a dining kitchen also serving as a buffer of the couple’s lives. This architecture has a simple plan reflecting the couple’s lifestyles, and wood over time gives the taste and warmth to architecture in various ways.

In most Indian cities, the typical urban multifamily residence or apartment stack evolves from a semi detached single family home built on a suburban or peri-urban plot.
