SLOVENIAN BOOK CENTER IN TRIESTE, Italy by SoNo Arhitekti

Friday, August 21st, 2015

Article source: SoNo Arhitekti

The design won the 1st prize in the invited architectural competition for the Slovenian book center in Trieste, Italy.

The proximity of the Oberdan Piazza and Fabiani’s National Hall has encouraged us to look more closely to the symbolic ties that are important for the Slovene minority living in Trieste. A hint that would only symbolically  show itself derives from Fabiani’s masterfully designed facade’s decoration. Decorative geometric element has been broken down and transformed into a modern structure, which represents itself in the basic pattern of the bookshelves.

Extension Of Orientation School in Kerzers, Switzerland by Morscher Architekten BSA SIA AG

Wednesday, August 19th, 2015

Article source:  Morscher  Architekten BSA SIA AG 

The school’s extension responds clearly and confidently to the large neighbouring buildings. A new entrance gives onto a spacious multi-storey hall. The group rooms are stacked one atop the other and can be read as simple boxes in the airspace, resulting in interesting sightlines. The administrative and special use rooms are located on both the lower level and ground floor, while the upper storeys hold the classrooms. The building is constructed of natural, robust materials that already have a lovely patina and are able to withstand a high degree of wear. The façade and some corridor areas are made of concrete. The classroom walls are lined with acoustic panels that double as bulletin boards. The ceiling has been left raw and can be used for heat storage. With this extension of the school’s classroom tract, a compact building has been created with short routes and an interesting central area suitable for a variety of uses.
