The Elastic Perspective in Barendrecht, Netherlands by NEXT ARCHITECTS

Friday, February 21st, 2014

Article source: NEXT ARCHITECTS

stair leading the visitor up to a height that allows an unhindered view of the horizon and the nearby skyline of Rotterdam. The path makes a continuous movement and thereby draws on the context of the heavy infrastructural surrounding of ring road and tram track. While a tram stop presents the end or the start of a journey, the route of the stairway is endless.

The Eco-Aquaponic House by Michael Jantzen

Friday, February 21st, 2014

Article source: Michael Jantzen

The Eco-Aquaponic House was designed as a public exhibit for a botanical garden to illustrate the potentials of growing fish and plants together in an eco-friendly and symbiotic way. This process called Aquaponic Gardening, merges fish and plants together. Waste deposited by the fish is cycled through the roots of the plants as a fertilizer. The plants filter the water and it is returned to the fish to cycle again and again. My Eco-Aquaponic House is basically a machine designed to facilitate this process in a very energy efficient and eco-friendly way.

CENTER FOR INTERPRETATION OF JEWISH CULTURE in Trancoso, Portugal by Gonçalo Byrne Arquitectos + Oficina Ideias em linha

Friday, February 21st, 2014

Article source: Gonçalo Byrne Arquitectos + Oficina Ideias em linha 

OBJECT

The Interpretation Center was plotted in the dense urban fabric of a medieval fortified village, in an area once referred as the Jewish quarter of Trancoso.

Starting from a ruined allotment, the aim was to re-erect a building that reinforces the corner geometry, still displaying an acute angle on the intersection of two narrow streets, and establishing a symbolic gesture in the context of Jewish urban culture.

Casa Flotanta in Puntarenas, Costa Rica by Benjamin Garcia Saxe Architecture

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

Article source: Benjamin Garcia Saxe Architecture

The Gooden-Na home family wanted to create a home on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica and they found an incredible site overlooking the ocean. The biggest challenge we encountered was that their plot of land was predominantly comprised of a very steep slope, and the view of the ocean could only be seen from the upper-mid portion of the site. We saw this as an opportunity rather than a constraint and immediately considered an architectural response that was appropriate for these conditions.

Özyeğin University Student Residence in Çekmeköy Campus, Turkey by ARK

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

Article source: ARK 

To mitigate the high density of accommodations required on the site, the design adopts a strategy of a tri-parte form and discontinuous stepped silhouette.  These formal ideas are complimented by the unique polychrome façade that merges the large building with the surrounding landscape.

Residential building in Barcelona, Spain by MATEO ARQUITECTURA

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

Article source: MATEO ARQUITECTURA

The neighbours protected themselves from the exterior with thick walls and balconies. We have to work with lightweight elements, so we designed the façade as a succession of layers: one interior, of glass and stainless steel, and another exterior, close to it, of wood that opens and closes at will. It protects us from noise and inquisitive eyes, acts as a filter between inside and outside, and gives the building an urban image.

To accommodate domestic life in the dense central city, architecture has to veil and control pure transparency.

ARBORETUM in Lille, France by Coldefy & Associés Architectes Ubranistes

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

Article source: Coldefy & Associés Architectes Ubranistes

Symbol of rebirth of a neighbourhood, the Arboretum project is a continuation of the development along Hoover Boulevard and the very metropolitan Euralille 2, articulating of the future Porte de Valenciennes neighbourhood. This strategic position induces a sense of transition from the economic heart Euralille to the mixed-use neighbourhoods of housing, commercial, and amenity programs, in which the quality of life takes precedent over monumentality.
