Student accommodation in Hagenberg, Austria by TWO IN A BOX – ARCHITEKTEN ZT GMBH

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

Article source: TWO IN A BOX – ARCHITEKTEN ZT GMBH

Student accommodation at Hagenberg – a studying and living environment of the highest quality. A new generation of student accommodation will open soon nearby Campus Hagenberg, Upper Austria. The TWO IN A BOX Architekten rely on prime quality. The concept of having separate showers, a communal fridge filled with food beyond expiry date or of sharing a 15 m2 big, early 80s style room with a room mate has been completely outdated.

Biombombastic in Madrid, Spain by Elii

Monday, November 2nd, 2015

Article source: Elii 

Complete refurbishment of a flat in the centre of Madrid

The purpose of this project is to renew an old flat in the centre of Madrid to turn it into a transformable space.

The project hinges around two complementary strategies. Firstly, an open space is configured, and the whole programme is grouped and arranged around an L-shaped band on two sides. This band includes the access to the household, the outer façade windows, a folding bed, the storage space, a complete kitchen, a fold-down auxiliary table, access to the bathroom and the washing machine. It optimises the spatial distribution and compacts all the functions so that everyday activities can benefit from as much space as possible, all the while adapting to the geometry of the apartment. Secondly, a fitted screen on one of the sides can be deployed from the wall to create different domestic arrangements, by closing the bedroom, the kitchen or dividing the house into two.

WATER VILLA in Amsterdam, Netherlands by +31ARCHITECTS

Sunday, November 1st, 2015

Article source: +31ARCHITECTS

Q: When designing a houseboat or structure sitting alongside a body of water, what are the considerations or alterations you have to make as opposed to a “regular” building? What is the most difficult part to resolve in a floating house?

A: There are a few aspects for floating houses that are of the outmost importance:

Weight:

You always have to make calculations for the weight of the boat because it has to float.

the Volume of the hull that is below the water level has to be compensated by the weight of the floating building. If you have a displacement of 1m³ of water you will need to compensate this with a weight of about 1000 kg. Before execution we make calculations off the total weight, including the extra weight that people will need for furniture, books and all other house stuff that they will put in the floating house.

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.
