A HOUSE FOR ART COLLECTOR in Geneva, Switzerland by ChristianDupraz Architects

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

Article source: ChristianDupraz Architects

I’d like a massive house, safe and fragrant like my childhood. I will make you a sheltered house like the ones I love.” It is through an on going conversation between the architect and client that the realisation of this house was achieved. On an exceptional site, along the edge of the centre of Geneva, this white house, with its pure geometry, is a part in itself. If the square plan is the basis for its composition, it surprises through its malleability and functional complexity.

Safe Haven Bathhouse in Ban Tha Song Yang, Thailand by TYIN tegnestue Architects

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

Article source:  TYIN tegnestue Architects

The new sanitary building houses the basic needs of the orphanage; the toilets, personal hygiene facilities and laundry. The internal structure was already built and became the framework for the project.

The most intimate functions are located within the two plastered concrete masses. The central zone contains concrete containers for bathing and opens out towards the vast teak plantation. The bathing area is only partly privatized, adapted to Karen culture. A tilted facade of bamboo covers the front of the building and creates a passageway, connecting the two functions together.

Chapel Hezenberg, Netherlands by Möhn + Bouman Architects

Sunday, January 12th, 2014

Article source: Möhn + Bouman Architects

The journey of a stable to a chapel; the story of this little building.

Embedded deep in a beautiful landscape, itself shaped during the last ice age, this chapel embodies a peaceful and inspiriational atmosphere. The harmonious, timeless furniture, crafted from pure oak, reflects the building’s woodland environment. Behind the altar a unique piece of art shimmers softly in the light.

Old Market Library in Bangkok, Thailand by TYIN tegnestue Architects

Article source: TYIN tegnestue Architects

The Old Market Library is built in a 100-year-old market building. The section for the library measures 3×9 metres internally, with a back yard facing a small canal. The roof and the walls were in very poor condition, and consequently any new element had to be self-supporting.

The project is situated in a former rural town that grew over the last decades into a medium-sized regional city. As a result of this process large parts of the city are transforming gradually towards a more urban character. The client is an innovative project developer, keen to play an active role in this process. Recently they acquired a piece of land close to the city centre for future redevelopment.

Los Bosques House in Chicureo, Santiago de Chile, Chile by MasFernandez Arquitectos

Friday, January 10th, 2014

Article source: MasFernandez Arquitectos

Located on the outskirts of the city of Santiago de Chile, in the Valley of Chicureo, “Los Bosques house” belongs to a young family who previously lived in an apartment in a high density area of the district of Las Condes, Downtown Santiago.
For them the expression of contemporary house played a key role in the project. Simple lines, flexible spaces, outside-inside connection and a central courtyard were part of their duties.
