New solar energy-plus child day-care centre in Marburg, Germany by opus Architekten

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

Article source: opus Architekten  

The design concept identifies three key concerns. Firstly: the need to slot a new building into the topography and character of a 19th century park with respect to its historic neighbouring structures, in particular a nearby chapel. Secondly: the desire to create a welcoming and lively educational environment both for children and the adults who work there. And last but not least: the aspiration to employ innovative technology to create a building that produces more energy than it consumes.

Touguinhó III House in Vila do Conde, Portugal by Raulino Silva Arquitecto Unipessoal Lda

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

Article source: Raulino Silva Arquitecto Unipessoal Lda 

On the site, that was being used as a planting field, we found the typical granite walls, a stone pit, some fruit trees and bushes. Those walls were recovered and the trees, the bushes and the stone pit were kept in their original place, in order to preserve the identity of the site.

The strong slope of the topography of about 5 meters between the street and the top of the site defined the planning of the house in two floors, nevertheless it was sought that both floors had direct connection with the outside garden.

House Between Walls in Huelva, Spain by Esculpir el Aire’s Architect

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

Article source: Esculpir el Aire’s Architect 

A vertical surface -on the left side-, standing out respect to the other one, gathers and exemplifies the long and raised aspects which are drawn from the Almonte’s tradition. The other surface -on the right side- assembles horizontally and oblique elements of the modern culture. A soft displacement of the main surface emphasizes the vertical dividing line between both ‘ styles. ‘ A great folded beam avoids beasts getting through, allowing to tie them. Moreover, its flat top makes possible the support of the gintonic of the horsemen who always visit us.

Borgo Merlassino in Alessandria, Italy by deamicisarchitetti

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

Article source: deamicisarchitetti 

Located amongst the Gavi vineyards, right in the heart of the La Raia farm, lies Borgo Merlassino. A rural resort combining traditional agricultural activity with new accommodation facilities: La Raia B&B, the La Raia Foundation headquarters, warehouses, laboratories for the Waldorf school and a reading hall. The genesis of the refurbishment and transformation of the former hamlet starts from the pre-existing structures. It was promptly decided that, rather than the actual buildings, it was the character and quality of the relevant spaces between the structures that needed ample renovation. The design statement envisaged contamination and contradiction as a strong structuring identity of the Site. The use of rammed-earth walls, the choice of traditional colours of buildings in Liguria and the reinterpretation of traditional building techniques have jointly attributed a new character to the hamlet. The senses of time, the scale, as well as the balance between old and new were the real motif of the design.

Article source: AWAA

This private commission for a single family home is located in a wooded residential area in Belgium. The house is a response to strict legislations on implantation and surface occupancy, as well as a municipality desire to promote housing in the neighborhood.

During the development, we proposed to the promoter an added value: a construction that would be energetically addressed, according to the passive house standards.

The Sports Pavilion in St Petersburg, Russia by Horomystudio

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

Article source: Horomystudio

The sports pavilion with an area of 113 m2 was built in the suburbs of Saint Petersburg in 2015. The project is notable not only for its elegant architectural forms but also for unique building technologies used during its construction process.

The architects were faced with a task to design a complete sports facility within an existing suburban landscape and limited space. As a result, the pavilion became part of the landscape and the landscape became part of the pavilion: only 30 m2 of the forest grounds were allowed for construction with all of the trees preserved and integrated into the interior of the building.

This semi-basement and ground floor house is located in the town of Oleiros. It is implanted on the site considering the previous situation of the plot of land, and solving the different orientations of the volumes.

The landscape and siting of the different volumes with the slopes of the plot of land, becomes a key factor in this project.

According to this, several masonry stone platforms arise. Over them, the volumes sit with a zinc coating.
