25 Green in Turin, Italy by Luciano Pia

Tuesday, March 24th, 2015

Article source: Luciano Pia

A new house has put down its roots in Turin. Its structure is in steel and it looks like a forest where trees are rooted in terraces with irregular shapes, ponds  are crossed by footings and lush gardens cover the roofs. The building has been thought as a living forest, a house on the trees like the houses children dream of and sometimes build.

DENTAL PRAXIS in Timisoara, Romania by Parasite Studio

Saturday, March 21st, 2015

Article source: Parasite Studio

The project of DENTAL PRAXIS dental clinic was devised on an open construction field in a neat rectangular urban tissue placed in a residential area close to the city suburbs. The idea of the project came along with setting the location – a “carious” field – in the urban tissue mentioned above, hence having a chamfered side. The idea was to functionally reconfigure this lot, starting from requirements set by the dental medical functions. As a rule, the dental act specializes in characteristic and distinctive cases, each activity focusing on an individual at a time.

Public Space in Gora Pulawska, Poland by 3XA

Saturday, March 21st, 2015

Article source: 3XA

Local authorities decided to transform an undeveloped piece of land in the center of Gora Pulawska into recreational space and meeting point for the village residents. The designers’ intention was to create a new square, which would be unique to its users. It should serve them well and meet their needs in every possible way. Therefore, several different zones have been designed, each intended for either leisure or recreational purposes. There is an open area with numerous benches, meant for small gatherings or outdoor events. There are also covered arbours with tables and seats intended for the residents to integrate, and finally there are large platform benches, where one can sit back and spend time in larger groups. Lighting was designed in the form of tall, slender lanterns and lamps located in the floor. The whole space has been equipped with bike racks and information boards. Landscaping elements such as pergolas, benches, lanterns and bins are made of corten steel. Benches are covered with light coloured oak wood. And the entire project is complemented with the greenery. Numerous birches and colourful bushes have been planted on both sides of the central axis. The embankment above the square has also been covered with decorative vegetation, formed in colourful stripes. The space is located below Radomska Street, which will ensure isolation from the busy arterial route. Functional differentiation of space, the use of sustainable and upstanding materials and the interesting greenery arrangement, all add up to a newly completed center of Gora Pulawska.
