Two requirements were sufficient for the approach and the genesis of this project. The first activities under typical rural environment equestrian uses were present as indissoluble features in the design concept; and the second project a rural housing under a contemporary reading embodied in its architecture. Thus the fundamental challenge of the project was to ensure that both the use and image were in constant symbiosis. For this and before generating a design scheme, architects initiate an investigation of the cultural aspects from the area of ​​habitat that have been established in rural dwellings of the place.

House W in Warsaw, Poland by STOPROCENT Architekci s.c

Thursday, November 17th, 2016

Article source: STOPROCENT Architekci s.c

The building was designed on a large and picturesque plot in the suburb of Warsaw. It is surrounded by a pine wood and a couple of summer houses sprinkled in close vicinity and further. The natural shape of the terrain is an uphill slope towards the south and the north, forming a small hill, flattened on the top. It was the aim of the architects to connect the new building to the natural context of the plot with a calm, harmonious design. Since the programme was extensive, a decision was taken to split the house up into a couple of smaller buildings, thus avoiding a massive form that would dominate over the plot.

Goetzis Fire Station A in Austria by Cukrowicz Nachbaur Architekten ZT GmbH

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016

Article source: Cukrowicz Nachbaur Architekten ZT GmbH

The competition project was developed for a different site between the large buildings of the garn market in the south and small scale single family houses in the north. After a change of the building site the project could be adapted. The new building of the fire station reacts to these surroundings with a calm and contained structure. The reduction to a few openings of the structure generates dynamic facades. The functional organization of the building is arranged in two main areas: administration- and training area as well as garage and workshop area. The two areas are connected via a foyer that is situated throughout the whole depth of the building. The foyer also connects the main entrance with the emergency entrance. All main functions are positioned clearly and well arranged on one floor, short hallways and direct connections guarantee the economical operation of the building as well as the optimal functioning in the case of a fire emergency. The structure will be built as a massive construction. The administration- and training area will be fitted with wooden interiors, the garage and workshop area will be built with a robust and durable combination of steel and concrete. The windows of the administration- and training area will be fitted with a layer of perforated metallic fins serving as sunscreen and homogenizing the appearance of the facades.
