Article source: FINCKH ARCHITEKTEN BDA

“the slim, long building with its smooth, specular surfaces widens the site. material, light and transparency create wide and open spaces”

The building is located on a south-hillside above esslingen am neckar within a grown residential area. the extremely slim and sloping land has since been used as a driveway road and was considered unbuildable. the just 4,70m wide and 14m long  building pushes out of the long, slim body between the neighboring houses into the hillside.

A2 House in Siena, Italy by VPS Architetti

Thursday, June 5th, 2014

Article source: VPS Architetti

The property is located near Castelmuzio, a small medieval hamlet in the Val D’Orcia region near the Renaissance town of Pienza. The Pieve (Church) of Santo Stefano in Cennano is located to the west of Castelmuzio along the Pieve country road.

The church was constructed on a sacred Etruscan site, evidenced by the many graves, urns and inscriptions unearthed in the area. The site later became a pagan temple and finally a Christian church, located along an important medieval pilgrimage route and rebuilt in the Romanesque style in the second half of the 12th century. The three apses have survived while the interior is now a single nave. The Parish declined in the 14th and 15th centuries until it was completely abandoned. The church was restored in more recent times.

Thursday, June 5th, 2014

Article source: ALT architectuur

The decision by the city of Ghent to establish its department of culture in an old warehouse on the river Leie was intended as a bold statement. By situating it at this particular site, a new axis is created, that runs perpendicular to the main commercial axis in the city centre.

The Garden House in London, UK by Space Group of Architects Ltd

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014

Article source: Space Group of Architects Ltd

This is a refurbishment and extension of an existing terraced house in North London.

The aim of the project is to extend the kitchen/dining area by infilling a currently under-used space to the side of the property. A minimal framed skylight shall provide good natural daylight from above in addition to vertically glazed surfaces. In addition to that we propose to extend the area by three meters into the garden repeating the same design principles allowing for extra space that also enhances the design ideas.
