Ski jumps in Planica, Slovenia by abiro, Blenkus-Florijancic d.o.o.

Tuesday, May 12th, 2015

Article source: abiro, Blenkus-Florijancic d.o.o.

The main aspect of the design is the profound relationship between the construction, the constructed site, and the natural surroundings. As Planica lies at the forefoot of the Slovenian largest natural protection area, as one of the most exciting entry points to the Triglav National Park, the large sport facilities should somehow evoke their position. The precise planning of topography, the systematic selection and reduction of material, bold shapes and forms should line themselves with the exciting silhouette of the mountains, and the calmness of the pine and beech forest. Two posters were designed to show two contrasting design aspects, i.e. of winter, and late summer.

House in Ningyo-cho, Japan by K+S Architects, Nobuya Kashima + Aya Sato

Tuesday, May 12th, 2015

Article source: K+S Architects, Nobuya Kashima + Aya Sato

Surrounding environment

Rebuilding of a house at Nihonbashi-Ningyo-cho, Chuo-ku, Tokyo.

The house is built near the main street, and there are many old and new restaurants and shops around here. Almost all of the buildings has shops on the 1st floor, and houses or offices on the upper floor. There are many medium-size apartments and offices on the south of this site, so this site cannot get enough sunlight. Many four-storied of buildings are densely built in this area, so we have to consider about getting light and breeze well.

Tuesday, May 12th, 2015

Article source: destilat

In the course of the revitalisation of the former Werzer cinema in Pörtschach, which was designed by the well-known “Wörthersee-Architect” Franz Baumgartner in 1930, parts of the roof truss were raised to make room for a spacious penthouse.

This 250m2 apartment has become the holiday home of a German business family of seven. Bright floors, cosy grey tones, and lavish white surface areas are the sound foundation of this apartment’s serene, harmonious atmosphere.

Bienenhaus #3 in Canale d’Agordo, Italy by archMaDe | Massimiliano Dell’Olivo architetto

Monday, May 11th, 2015

Article source: archMaDe | Massimiliano Dell’Olivo architetto

Introduction

I have always seen in the community life of bees an urban instruction; something that is very close to the motto \”unity is strength\”.
A Bienenhaus is also this: a macro-structure can accommodate more living cells.
The teaching must have come from the comb itself in those early beekeepers who decided to protect their hives in these small buildings.

Casa Decor 2015 – KAZUO Suite in Madrid, Spain by Egue y Seta

Saturday, May 9th, 2015

Article source: Egue y Seta 

KAZUO Suite

If dreaming is like traveling, why do we have to come back home at dusk? With their latest promotional space for 2015´s edition of Casa Décor, Kazuo Suite, the Spanish interior architecture studio Egue y Seta want to give us the chance to keep on traveling after sleep, to offer the opportunity of going to bed in the middle of garden blossoming under dark inked oriental strokes, and a place to commence each and every day amidst vegetal reflections of a somehow “Shinto” calling. This is a space that poses a fluid, cyclic and infinite circulation path, around premises that host our most private moments; a room where intimacy is shared with nature, where the outdoors invades the very heart of the built environment and a realm where light travels unceasingly through transparencies and mirrors up until the moment, when we decide to, once again, close our eyes for the night.
