Family house in Dunakeszi, Hungary by Boczkó Architects

Thursday, January 16th, 2014

Article source: Boczkó Architects 

Our customer wanted to build a one-storey family house with attic on a currently built-up corner lot in Dunakeszi, a suburban residential area situated on the bank of the Danube.

At the time of design, the lot was already built-up with a high pitched roof brick building and a wooden frame outbuilding on it. These buildings were demolished.

Inspired by Yale School of Management’s reinvention of business school education and pioneering integrated curriculum, the new Edward P. Evans Hall combines world-class teaching facilities with inspirational social spaces. The design unites Yale’s faculty departments in a single location for the first time and brings a high level of transparency to the traditionally enclosed college courtyard, creating a green heart for the campus community, which is visible throughout the school.

Sint Katelijnestraat in Mechelen, Belgium by OKRA Landscape Architects

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014

Article source: OKRA Landscape Architects

The assignment for the Sint Katelijnestraat is ambiguous. The idea is to develop the quality of the public space and further expansion of the qualitative network of the town of Mechelen.

Meanwhile, the heart of the town has gotten a large quality-impulse but a beautiful route to the centre is still lacking. Thereby, Mechelen will be an attractive town to visit. By that, the undiscovered heart of the centre will actually be exposed. Because of the structure of the town, the orientation in the medieval public space network is difficult. The redevelopment of the town radius Sint Katelijnestraat largely contributes to this and will thereby form an orientation line in the centre.

Water in Historic City Centres’ has Mechelen as its proving ground

The project was set up within the framework of the European Interreg (Interregional Cooperation Programme) for North-West Europe (NWE).

Hikari by Cyrille Druart

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014

Article source: Cyrille Druart

Footsteps resound the wooden floor. Shadows pass by and vanish behind the great drapes.

Hikari is a place beyond time, away from the outside restlessness. It is made of private romms orbiting around the restaurant’s core. A religious place dedicated to Japanese gastronomy in the most refined and sophisticated way.

House of Toilet in Ibukijima Island, Japan by Daigo Ishii + Future-scape Archtiects

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

Article source: Daigo Ishii + Future-scape Archtiects

In the traditional local house in Ibukijima Island, the toilet is mostly established in a small cottage separated from the main house. In Ibukijima Island, the toilet is a peripheral space that is repelled and excluded from the main house.

The relation between the main house and the separated cottage resembles the relation between the main land and isolated Ibukijima island or between a big city and a remote district somewhere. Now, Ibukijima island is only connected with liner from Kanonji city of the main land, and the small isolated island serves as the periphery of the main land and the country of Japan.

Infant Educational Centre “La Viña” in CÚLLAR VEGA, SPAIN by gabriel verd arquitectos

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

Article source: gabriel verd arquitectos

Placed in the northern part of Cullar Vega’s city centre, the project articulates itself around the idea of creating a permeable building, in which the relationship between exterior and interior spaces is always protagonist. The general disposition is based on two differentiated and complementary axes. The transversal axis concentrates most of the public services and administrative areas. The longitudinal axis corresponds to the teaching activity, where classrooms are located.
