Tijucopava House in Brazil by AMZ Arquitetos

Monday, December 18th, 2017

Article source: AMZ Arquitetos

Located in an Atlantic Forest  reserve in the coast of the state of São Paulo, the Tijucopava house faces the sea view and the surrounding exuberant landscape.

Installed on a steep slope, its structure can be defined in two parts: a monolithic concrete base supporting the garage and the pool and, on top of it, a modular wooden structure, profiled by a glass frame. Each module in the structure houses one of the bedrooms, the private bathrooms of which are pervaded by natural light and ventilation from the continuous rooflights that run across the roof.

European Central Bank in Frankfurt, Germany by COOP HIMMELB(L)AU

Monday, December 18th, 2017

Article source: COOP HIMMELB(L)AU 

The striking twin tower shapes the skyline of Frankfurt’s Ostend 

The design of the Viennese architectural studio Coop Himmelb(l)au for the new premises of the European Central Bank in Frankfurt combines the horizontal structure of the landmarked Grossmarkthalle with a twisted double tower, which rises to 185 meters. United by an entrance building, these two elements form an ensemble of special architectural significance. Featuring bridges, pathways and platforms, the glass atrium between the two highrises creates a vertical city. The semi-public and communicative functions are located in the former Grossmarkthalle. The exceptional atrium and visible steel support structure show that the ECB building belongs to an entirely new typology of skyscrapers.

Monday, December 18th, 2017

Article source: UNStudio

The UNStudio designed Kutaisi International Airport was recently voted one of the 13 most beautiful airports in the world by ‘Curbed magazine’ (May 2017).

Just four and a half years after its official opening (September 2012), the airport has grown rapidly from 12,915 passengers per year to more than 300,000 in 2016. Predictions for the low-cost airliner airport are such that it is expected to reach a capacity of close to 1,000,000 passengers by 2020. In order to facilitate this predicted growth UNStudio has now been invited to design a large extension to the existing terminal.

La Piadina Cambados in Galicia, Spain by NAN Architects

Monday, December 18th, 2017

Article source: NAN Architects 

A work, being an event that takes place in a certain time and obey an expression of requirements and solutions, always tells a history.

The story of this book talks about how to make a virtue of necessity; constant struggle between lack of time and money always comes (we have not had any clients to give us a blank check, and on second thought, we hinder our work even more) when projected a local hostelry.

Brolettouno Apartment in Mantua, Italy by Archiplanstudio

Friday, December 15th, 2017

Article source: Archiplanstudio 

The project involves the restoration of a small apartment for tourist use in the historical centre of Mantova.

The apartment BROLETTOUNO belongs to a long design research path, which emerges in various interventions on built heritage.

Basically we try to keep together two worlds, the one of the old and the one of the new, in a balance able to guarantee the identity of both of them. Light and shadow are kept together in their ambiguity and plurality, without sacrificing the reasons of one at the expense of the other.

The enchanted shed & Leopold House in Vienna, Austria by Franz&Sue

Friday, December 15th, 2017

Article source: Franz&Sue

Appreciation 

The workmen from the village wanted to tear down the black shed from 1934: draughty, weather-beaten and worm-eaten it was, they said. But we liked this black outbuilding of the mansard-roof house in the Vienna Woods that we had just renovated in a radical yet respectful manner.

»An old outbuilding became a writer’s workshop, a garden room for guests, and a children’s paradise«

The special appeal of this project lies in the appreciation shown for this old outbuilding in the shadows of the Vienna Woods villas. Back in the 1930s, few people could afford a basement, let alone a garage. And so they built their own sheds to store wood, raise rabbits or boil laundry in, which was then hung up to dry in the attic.
