HAUS FÜR JULIA UND BJÖRN in Austria by Innauer-Matt Architekten

Thursday, February 12th, 2015

Article source: Innauer-Matt Architekten

The new house, clamped between a lime tree and a walnut tree, comfortably completes the small hamlet in which it is situated. Due to the inclination and the narrow nature of the premises, the clear layering of the building follows the contour lines and makes use of the sloping ground.

A’ House in Tokyo, Japan by Wiel Arets, Satoru Umehara, Alex Kunnen

Thursday, February 12th, 2015

Article source: Wiel Arets, Satoru Umehara, Alex Kunnen

This compact private residence is nestled within the dense expanse of Tokyo, in Nishi-Azabu—a neighborhood characterized by narrow streets and traditional low-rise houses—which borders a park heavily visited during the spring, when the city’s cherry trees begin to bloom. Its 136-square-meter area consists of five horizontally divided spaces, each connected by a minuscule sculptural spiraling staircase that, given the footprint of the house, allows for loft-like spaces within its intimate confines. Oversized windows punctuate the house, each with two layers of glazing; one is transparent and one is of the same relief glass that wraps the façade. These oversized windows, with their dual layers of glazing, can be countlessly reconfigured, to regulate the interior flow of daylight.

Article source: [tp3] architekten ZT GmbH 

The exceptional property with its existing topography as well as the views towards the city of Linz and the industrial area of Voest were starting points for the design of this project. The idea was not to adjust the surrounding terrain to the house but to insert the building into the existing landscape.

Pubique in The Hague, Netherlands by Robert Kolenik

Thursday, February 12th, 2015

Article source: Robert Kolenik

PUBLIQUE – bistro 2.0 is designer Robert Kolenik’s contemporary vision of a tried and tested concept.

In October, the Publique Restaurant opened its doors on one of the most exciting squares in The Hague’s vibrant city centre.

The brothers Casper and Sjoerd Smits and their cousin Maurits Jonkman, all experienced restaurateurs, asked Robert Kolenik to design a stylish but accessible version of that much-loved French classic, the bistro.

The warm copper colour in the stained glass windows was chosen as the guiding principle for the design.

Halimoglu Fasarit Head Office and Showroom Interior Design in Istanbul, Turkey by YEGENA

Thursday, February 12th, 2015

Article source: YEGENA

The initial idea of the showroom design realized for Halimoglu-fasarit paint company  is constructed on the giant ”eggs” that are installed into the venues. Cross-sections which are created by elliptical paraboloids over hanging from the venue, with each other and with the venue itself , constitutes the main character of the design. The distinct difference which is seen between the showroom and the working spaces outside of it , ensures impressive appearance of the repetitive spinal column at the transitional areas. The color input coming from the paint origin of Halimoglu Company, is expressed by spreading a 3 dimensional rainbow into the venue.

Transborder by Martin Rajniš

Thursday, February 12th, 2015

Article source: Martin Rajniš

Transborder is a term used for a carrying system, where the trolley that is hung on the movable pulley is used for carriage across the obstruction. It is a certain modification of a cableway. Transborders are used throughout the centuries. Its most common locations are ports. In such locations it is necessary to keep the height of the construction, because of the capacious ships. Whereas gondola Transborder moves in the quay level to provide passengers‘ most comfortable journey. Prof. ing. arch. Mirko Baum from T.H. Aachen realized the T.B. on the river Niers in 2003. By this achievement he brought this traditional system back to todays people notice. His little scale made a beutiful exemplar, which is useful for citizens. In this realization we found our inspiration and projected similar mechanism for Chrastava – Andělská Hora, to replace preceding footbridge, which was destroyed during floods. In contrast to T.B. on the river Niers, which is whole made of metal, we constructed the T.B. using barked logs. This construction better corresponds with local scenery and at the same time keeps conformable static properties. Wooden variety economics is much more positive in comparison to the metal one. Contemplating ecological aspects, there is no doubt, that facts are on behalf of the wooden variety. Horizontal part of the Transborder is fixed and upon enough from the water-level. Vertical struts are in alignment, behind of stationary obstructions and it is possible to bend out the trolley (gondola) in an angle of 90°,so its position is above the water-level of the flooded river. Thanks to this, transborder becomes a vehicle with much better resistance of floods.
