Viravent, 112 flats in Cenon, France by Martin Duplantier Architectes

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

Article source: Martin Duplantier Architectes

The burning issue in Metropolitan Bordeaux is a project of 50,000 housing units. Envisioned and designed to be a real estate opportunity, the overly dense development has created quite a controversy. The Viravent project proposes another paradigm. Built before the beginning of the 50,000 yet still comparable, given the shared design model (sited in the heart of town, but in a diffuse section without access to the ZAC), the Viravent project integrates into an existing urban fabric more than imposing upon it.

MoganshanGowin Golf Manor in Hangzhou, China by Rocco Design Architects Ltd.

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

Article source: Rocco Design Architects Ltd. 

Situated in the famed resort area of Moganshan, the Gowin Golf Manor serves as a clubhouse for golfers, but also offers a small number of guest rooms to house overnight visitors. The rooms overlook the golf course and are lifted slightly, and held to one side of a central atrium while the public functions are grouped on the other side. The disparate functions of the clubhouse are distinguished by a unique set of materials including zinc, stone, and glass; together they create a multi-storey space pierced by angled ramps and sky bridges.

New residential and mix-use tower in Antwerp, Belgium by C.F. Møller Architects

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

Article source:  C.F. Møller Architects

The architectural idea of the building is derived from an inside-out perspective, where the social qualities of the building are a dominant driver for the design: Often in tall buildings, the sense of community amongst the occupants is challenged by the fact that you hardly ever meet your neighbours, except coming and going via the lobby and at the lifts.

Faber Avenue in Singapore by hyla architects

Article source: hyla architects

Erection of 2-Storey Semi-Detached Dwelling House with Attic

The front has a westerly orientation and thus the house is turned around to face the back which is more private.  A series of sleek vertical aluminium screens protect the house from the sun whilst allowing the wind to pass through.  The entrance hall has a reflecting pool and a high volume.  The stairs travel up the 3 levels alongside a granite clad wall to reach the master bedroom and roof terrace at the top and rear.  The master bathroom has a free standing vanity, bath and wc with a skylight and light chandelier on top.

Hover House in Victoria, Australia by Bower Architecture

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

Article source: Bower Architecture

Hover house is a residence in beachside Mt. Martha (Victoria, Australia) which re-imagines the single dwelling courtyard. Site on a rear battle-axe block with minimal outlook, privacy or street frontage, the project brief was for a tranquil, sustainable and private home filled with natural light, warmth and texture. In response, the concept sought to create a captivating internal focus in the form of a private central courtyard, providing a strong link between key spaces. In order to maximise natural light and privacy a simple sectional gable shape was extruded through the east-west axis of the house, resulting in a form that efficiently collects rainwater, incorporates sustainable passive systems and emphasises views to distant gum tree canopies.

Sarugaku in Daikanyama, Tokyo by akihisa hirata ,yoshihiko yoshihara

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

Article source: Akihisa hirata ,Yoshihiko yoshihara

This is a set of the commercial tenant buildings in Daikanyama, Tokyo.
From legal condition it was demanded to build several small volumes in narrow site, and we decided to make several volumes that seemed to be mountains. Thereby valley-shaped space between mountains is formed, where people and displayed things will overflow. Light and wind are taken enough by valley-shaped space, and each shop can enlarge itself on the mountain shaped volumes.

WANKA HOUSE in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Estudio Galera

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

Article source: Estudio Galera

Wanka House is a vacation home thought of as a place where things happen and as a playful space where family and friends meet to relax… this does not mean, however, to be quiet.

The house, which is set a hundred meters from the sea in Cariló – a seaside town 400 km from Buenos Aires city-, is nourished and inspired by the landscape. This is why the brief took full advantage of the views of the surroundings and the optimal sunlight where the plot is situated.

House LB in Piura, Peru by Riofrio + Rodrigo Arquitectos

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

Article source: Riofrio + Rodrigo Arquitectos

The house is located in northern Peru, near the equator, in the city of Piura. Intense heat is an important factor when designing for this area. This particular external characteristic impacts how the home’s inhabitants use conventional spaces. We observe that the terrace is the most important social environment so we made it the protagonist of the design by moving its location to the center of the house. The entrance of the house invites you right back outside by leading you to the terrace, and as an afterthought the garden and pool. You can find the more traditional living room and dining rooms on the flanks of the terrace, as if containing it.

The new school of Piazza delle Erbe is part of the Urban Renewal Programme of Porta Soprana and San Donato in the historic center of Genoa. The school rises on the urban voids caused by the bombing which destroyed some monumental buildings and homes in the entire area between via di Porta Soprana and Mezzagalera alley. The new building is composed of several floors and will accommodate just under 500 children of the primary and secondary school. In the uppers floors are located the classrooms, whereas in the ground floor there are the secretariat, the canteen and a music room. The outdoor areas are obtained on the terrace, which opens on a breathtaking view of the city.
