Pilot IKC Zeeburgereiland in Amsterdam by Studioninedots

Friday, January 17th, 2014

Article source: Studioninedots

The school of the 21st century needs to satisfy a long list of demands, some of which seem at first to be contradictory. It needs to have character and function as an anchoring point within the neighbourhood. It must be multifunctional, flexible, energy-efficient, sustainable, affordable, and possible to build within just a few months. Impossible? No. In fact, it was recently completed: the Integraal Kindcentrum (Integral Child Centre, IKC) Zeeburgereiland in Amsterdam, designed by Studioninedots. The building was opened on 29 November.

House Workshop in Prihueico Lake, Chile by Schmidt Architects Associates

Friday, January 17th, 2014

Article source: Schmidt Architects Associates 

The brief from this young couple was to design both living accommodation and studio space for sculpture & painting. Located in a millenary old forest of towering trees, on the shores of Lake Pirihueico in the south of Chile.

The proposal was to make a brightly lit and welcoming refuge, which inhabits the rough nature of its environment, enjoying this from within a core which maintains its distance, but at the same time both integrates with and emphasizes its surroundings. Formally it assimilates the vernacular architecture of the south, with large (overhanging??) roofs and simple rounded geometric volumes roughened?? through the ageing of the timber. The building form is not willful given the wet summers and extremely snow filled winters experienced by this remote lake set amongst the foothills of the Andes, but at the same time it contributes to the fantastic existing nature of the place.

Seaside House in Baltic Sea Coast, Poland by Ultra Architects

Friday, January 17th, 2014

Article source: Ultra Architects

The very first task was to choose a structural material which would work in heavy natural conditions on a plot where the building had to stand. For the sake of instability of the ground and high level of ground water, the shell of a building must be heavy and waterproof. It also must be firm and solid since we designed large windows to open the interior for a beautiful view of a seaside landscape.
