House Y in Iisalmi, Finland by Arkkitehtitoimisto Teemu Pirinen

Friday, May 26th, 2017

Article source: Arkkitehtitoimisto Teemu Pirinen

Backstory

The client inherited an unattractive “McMansion” with poor spatial. The house was designed to meet the tastes of the former generation. The site also featured a large pompous garden with extensive manicured lawns. The house was too big and expensive to maintain. The client wanted to restore the plot to a natural pine forest, and built a small home that fully engages with the surrounding landscape. An added bonus to the restored pine forest is that the client doesn’t need to mow any lawns! The new house and garden have been designed to meet contemporary tastes. Hence, this project represents both a generational shift and a change in design ideology / ecology.

Dome of Visions 3.0 in Aarhus, Denmark by Atelier Kristoffer Tejlgaard

Friday, May 26th, 2017

Article source: Atelier Kristoffer Tejlgaard 

The architect behind Dome of Visions, Kristoffer Tejlgaard, sees sustainability in construction as an absolutely necessary and worthwhile entrance to his subject.

To his students, the former Pritzker award winner, Glenn Murcutt, formulated a very elegant approach to architecture: “Touch the Earth Lightly with your housing footprint”, and with that he did not only consider a building built on a few pillars. He asks the question: Where does the building materials come from? What damage has been done, for example, in the land area where the materials are extracted? How will the construction be returned to the ground again, or can it be recycled, recycled or assembled in a way so that it can be separated, changed and used in new contexts?
