House 3/6, Dongducheon in South Korea by Yang jin seok (Y GROUP)

Wednesday, March 7th, 2018

Article source: Yang jin seok (Y GROUP)

The third house. A house opened to sky at Dongducheon.

It’s a house of three members of family, father drives a truck and delivers mattresses, mother is convalescing at home after the cancel surgery, and a daughter who always care about family, a middle school student. Building a 40-square-meter of single house was possible for this family. However, we decided to build a three – story building with a parking lot for a truck and a rest place for mother. For she likes reading books with daughter. Also, we made a small but solid kitchen space for the mother who cooked on the outer floor because it was not ventilated. I needed a design to satisfy space such as a parking lot, a family room, 2 rooms, a toilet, a kitchen, a study, and small yard.

Grand Canal Street in Dublin2, Ireland by Scullion Architects

Wednesday, March 7th, 2018

Article source: Scullion Architects

This project involves the transformation of a Georgian three-storey terraced house near Dublin’s Docklands from three bed-sits into one light-filled ‘upside-down’ house with a new black tower in the garden.

The original Georgian property comprised three floors of accommodation, which had been converted into separate studio bed-sits on each floor.  Most of the original decorative plasterwork and joinery features of the home had been lost, with the exception of the main hallway and staircase, which were reasonably intact.

Passive Townhouses in Vallastaden, Sweden by Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture

Wednesday, March 7th, 2018

Article source: Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture

In Linköping’s new district of Vallastaden, Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture has built a townhouse that achieves a passive house standard with four apartments. The townhouse consists of four volumes that differ in shape and facade patterns. The relationship is visible in the colours and expressions of the facade plates. In addition to each apartment there is a small courtyard with bicycle storage and a garden with patio and storage room for outdoor furniture. The storage buildings have green roofs and the façade is treated with an environmentally friendly wood protection and is grayed out over the years. The apartments have a flexible third floor with high ceilings that can be used as studio, playroom or additional bedroom. Each apartment has its own theme that is seen in the kitchen and bathroom furnishings.

House in Tschengla, Austria by Innauer-Matt Architects ZT GmbH

Wednesday, March 7th, 2018

Article source: Innauer-Matt Architects ZT GmbH

Most owners use their holiday homes for only a couple of weeks a year, leaving them as empty objects in their respective surrounding for the rest of the time. This is, however, not the case with House on Tschengla, which has become a fully-fledged second home for its owners. Located a mere 30 minute drive from their flat in the Western Austrian town of Feldkirch, it allows them to live in two worlds, between the lively density of a town and the vast solitude of the mountains.

New charging stations for electric vehicles in Fredericia, Denmark by COBE

Tuesday, March 6th, 2018

Article source: COBE 

In cooperation with the Danish company CLEVER, which supplies charging solutions for electric vehicles, Danish architects COBE is presenting its design for a modular system of ultra-fast charging stations. The first of the new charging stations opens in Fredericia, Denmark, in summer 2018. The idea is to let drivers take a meaningful break during their journey.

In future, electricity will replace petrol and diesel as the fuel for our cars. However, while it takes approx. five minutes to fill up your car with petrol, charging an electric vehicle today is a more time-consuming exercise which can easily take 45 minutes. People today lead busy lives, and every minute counts. Therefore, the charging station of the future should not only minimize the charging time, but also create a meaningful break for the driver.

Article source: PAULO MARTINS ARQ & DESIGN 

This project refers to the redesigning of a T1 apartment (46 m2), located in attic flat of a 70’s building, situated in a privileged area of Sever do Vouga.

The social room of the building was firstly East facing while the cosy area was West facing. The main goal of the reconstruction was to change both social and cosy areas to the opposite side, allowing a better sun exposure which also made it possible to use the contiguous balcony.

It was also created a box inside the apartment, cleary distiguished with the usage of another colour, where other facilities, such as toilet, kitchen and machines, were placed.
