ANORO HOUSE in Sant Esteve de Palautordera by Anna & Eugeni Bach, arquitectes

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

Article source: Anna & Eugeni Bach, arquitectes

The project consists on the extension of an existing weekend house near the village of Sant Esteve de Palautordera, one hour north from Barcelona.

The existing house had been enlarged with small additions after its completion, but the new room program almost doubled the original surface of the house, and therefore, the new construction couldn´t be understood as one more new volume added to the original. The strategy, from the very beginning, was to treat the overall project as a “dancing couple”, where every part has its own role while dancing the same song.

Hirslanden Heart Clinic in Zurich, Switzerland by Dost Architecture

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

Article source: Dost Architecture 

Dost Architecture, a leading Swiss architectural firm with an ongoing concern for acoustics, was retained to develop a workflow and interior design concept to provide the expanding Hirslanden Heart Clinic with uncompromised functionality while also reflecting the organization’s intrinsic values.  To ensure optimal acoustics and speech intelligibility for the new clinic, Dost engaged Walters-Storyk Design Group, global acoustics/architectural specialists, to study all aspects of the clinic’s room and structural acoustics – the latter being critical due to doctor-to-patient conversation privacy issues. A range of eight acoustical room treatments was developed based on WSDG findings. The clinic’s rooms were individually analyzed, and a matrix was created to determine which application would most benefit each room.

Article source: Roberto Ercilla Architecture

A U-shaped volumetry is planned for the initial layout.

Three excavations are to be done on corners. As they will break down the initial volume, they will allow more sunlight and comfort for the patio.

The south-facing garden area presides as the community centre.

Mixed Use Infill 3 Houses and an Office in Antwerp, Belgium by Collectief Noord Architecten

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Article source: Collectief Noord Architecten

Three pavillions and a house give shape to an urban garden in the city centre. Each pavillion is similar to the other, but differ like brothers do. Concrete garden blocks in the facade sustain the expression of a garden folly and remind us of the attempts of Wright and Sullivan to democratize ornament. On top of each pavillion there is a roof pavillion: a garden in a garden in the city.

Constituyentes Illuminated Facade in Mexico City, Mexico by Taller David Dana Arquitectura

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Article source: Taller David Dana Arquitectura

This Project is located at Constituyentes 1072, one of the main avenues in Mexico City. The architectural approach integrates a front entry plaza that works as a boundary or transition between the building and the street. The office complex integrates 5 levels and has the great advantage of inserting natural day lighting in all four facades. All the floor plans are equal besides the fifth floor which has a frontal cantilever that is being supported with a metal structure of 23 meters of altitude. The main disadvantage of this structural skeleton was that is exposed in an area of high exposure.

Article source: BIURO ARCHITEKTONICZNE BARYCZ & SARAMOWICZ

In Izabelin Północny near Warsaw, at Białego Orła street, a villa of shingles and gabions was built to a design by Barycz and Saramowicz Architectural Office. This imposing, luxurious residence is contrarily called A Little House in the Forest, with reference to a playful name of the pre-war villa of the great Polish writer, Melchior Wańkowicz, located in Żoliborz in Warsaw (“The Tiny House”), as it is located on a beautiful plot of land, covered with old pine trees.
