Ecopole and business incubator in Concarneau, France by ENO ARCHITECTES

Wednesday, April 15th, 2015

Article source: ENO ARCHITECTES

Building “image”, symbolic and copy, the project is in its form and purpose, to meet these requirements : the visitor should immediately understand the nature, the DNA, of the building.  Emblematic bio climatic elements serve to the project and not the reverse.

They shape the project as well as the traditional components (wall, etc. roof).  3 requirements, 3 heights, 1 main entrance: it is the pragmatic application of the combined program bio climatic approach that guides the design of the project.

Wednesday, April 15th, 2015

Article source: Studio Toggle

The ‘Edges Apartments’; with its articulated brick cladded façade; lights up one of the back-streets of the predominantly expat neighborhood of Salmiya, in Kuwait.

A simple rhythmic twist, achieved by transposition of the vertices on either side of a finite axis imparts dynamism and drama to the façade. Avery restrained palette of locally sourced natural brick and exposed concrete finish further emphasizes the massing and gives the building its unique personality.

Hellen Panorama in Eidsvåg, Norway by LINK arkitektur

Tuesday, April 14th, 2015

Article source: LINK arkitektur

In 1989, Vestbo, a local housing cooperation acquired a stunning site 10 minutes north from Bergen.

The plot is up in the hillside and has spectacular views over the fjord leading into the Bergen harbor.

Vestbo developed most of the land before the year 2000, but one plot had been preserved due to a high power line above that went over it and made it uninhabitable due to electrical radiation, In 2008 the power company dismantled the power line and put it underground. Suddenly the possibility for a new housing development arose.
