House Baetens in ELST, The Netherlands by JagerJanssen architecten BNA

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

Article source: JagerJanssen architecten BNA

The intersection of a planned green strip and an existing avenue provide an architectural opportunity for this a two-storey dwelling. The first floor appears to be cumbersome and heavy materialised: dark bricks with continuous seams result in an abstract rugged character. The second floor will be a wooden shaft: lighter in colour, weight and design.

TREE HOUSE (SEPARATION CREEK) in Victoria, Australia by Jackson Clements Burrows Pty Ltd Architects

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

Article source:  Jackson Clements Burrows Pty Ltd Architects

Sited in the bush fringe of Separation Creek Victoria, the project is perched on a steep forested hillside above the Great Ocean Road and Bass Strait. The tree house draws on the modest local vernacular of 1950’s painted fibro shacks with cement sheet lining and expressed battens over joints. The sculptural form and associated colour scheme allow the built form to both connect with the landscape and to dissolve within it.

New research and development centre for Hankook Tire breaks ground in Korea by Foster + Partners

Wednesday, June 18th, 2014

Article source: Foster + Partners

A ground-breaking ceremony has been held for the Hankook Technodome, a state-of-the-art new research and development facility for one of the world’s leading tyre manufacturers. The new centre is located in Daejeon, at the heart of Asia’s ‘silicon valley’, and will provide an inspirational place to work, with light filled offices, state-of-the-art laboratories and dynamic social spaces to nurture a culture of openness and innovation.

The design of the new centre is rooted in analysis of the organisation. Rather than a conventional arrangement of offices above double-height testing areas, the building is arranged as five fingers, with parallel office and industrial units – this dynamic, integrated arrangement is highly flexible and promotes visual connections and interaction between the offices, laboratories and different divisions. Breaks between each finger draw daylight into the heart of the floor plate.

Private house in Villeny (41), France by Nicolas Laisné Associés

Wednesday, June 18th, 2014

Article source: Nicolas Laisné Associés

This house is the product of the renovation of a boating warehouse by a large pond near Orleans.

Facing the forest, wooden blades hide the house from a public footpath. The second facade literally hangs over the water, with each of its rooms opening onto a landscape where high timber trees mix with reflections in the water.
