Micro Cluster Cabins in Vestfold, Norway by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

Article source: Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter

The client wanted a cabin for the whole family, but at the same time it needed to be divisible in some way. The solution was a cluster of three structures, which can be used individually. Each of the buildings is defined as a clarified geometric volume, organized around the outdoor area that binds them together as one unit. Toward the northeast, a hill borders and defines the site, together with the view in the opposite direction. The spatial interaction between landscape and the structure creates a beneficial micro climate. This is reflected by the structures’ southwest orientation, where the gable end is glazed. In the other directions the buildings appear more closed.

Lang Loft in Thornhill, Ontario by atelier rzlbd

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

Article source: atelier rzlbd 

For the last 20 years, since moving to her apartment, Heather Lang had been dreaming of turning her home from dated and dreary into an airy open-plan New York style loft. Her home, while not the perfect place, was known as Heather’s Hotel, welcoming visitors from far and wide to enjoy wonderfully hospitality and great cooking. Plus, her residence was often the venue for very large family gathering. It was important to her that while the form and feel of her home would change with a new look, that the functionality to continue to allow her place to be a warm gathering place would not change, and would be improved. rzlbd was up to challenge! The results speak for themselves.

Funen Blok K – Verdana in The Netherlands by NL Architects

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

Article source: NL Architects

These ten houses are part of a master plan for 500 dwellings and a park by the Architecten Cie, called ‘Het Funen, Hidden Delights’. The triangular site is located between the historic center and the recently redeveloped harbor area in the east of Amsterdam, a former parking lot for towed cars. Along the east and the south side a ‘wall’ containing over 300 apartments and office spaces shields the site from the noise of the adjacent railroad. Inside this semi open block a loose grid is set up, containing 16 smaller housing blocks positioned in a park. These ‘Hidden Delights’ vary in height from 9 to 18 meters. A shift from the public to the private has taken place. The urban plan including the park is initiated and commissioned -traditionally operations directed by the City- and developed and build by one single company, IBC Vastgoed. The maintenance of the park will be handled by a private firm, not by the city, but the park will remain publicly accessible. There are three almost square blocks that measure 30.5 by 27.7 meters and should contain 2.5 stories. It was obligatory to build the first two stories in alignment; the third should be 50% building and 50% roof terrace/garden. In our block the volume is distributed evenly over the ten houses; each is allocated 633 cubic meters. The houses are organized according to a typology known as back to back housing. They will be accessed from an aisle in the middle of the block. This “mini-canyon” rids the facades of the obligatory storage spaces and technical facilities that formally have to be accessible from the public domain.

Interior design of Immo Desimpel offices in Merelbeke, Belgium by BURO II & ARCHI+I

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

Article source: BURO II & ARCHI+I

The interior design started on a floor of the building that was still a shell. Creating one long corridor for circulation made it possible to conceal the shafts, while a stretch ceiling proved the ideal solution for resolving acoustical problems.

Health Centre and Church Square in Heiden, Germany by THESING & THESING

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

Article source: Thesing & Thesing Architekten BDA

In the centre of the Westphalian town of Heiden, Thesing & Thesing Architekten have paid homage to history in their creation of a new community space adjacent to the town’s historical church square. Bricks were chosen as the exclusive material for the roof and façade of the new health centre and the pavement of the square itself, an expression of the holistic approach employed by the architects. The bricks of the Hagemeisters’s “Heiden” variety, produced especially for the project, vary in colour from a deep reddish-brown to a violet-red with blue anthracite smoke marks and contribute a sense of lasting permanence. Until the 1970s, a neo-gothic church dominated the centre of the community. In the contours of the new medical building, the architects recall the proportions of both the original church’s architecture and that of even older urban structures taken from the town’s original land registers.
