Novo Mesto Central Market in Slovenia by ENOTA

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013

Article source: ENOTA

The backbone of the new central market is formed by the covered Market Street, which lies on the level of main city square and connects the two spots closest to it on both access streets. The programme of the new central market is thus divided into two floors, one on the level of main square and the other on the level of Florjanov Square on the other side of the city block. The lower floor is partially dug in and features indoor trading and service surfaces, while the upper floor
is intended for the covered market and opens to all sides.

Municipal Library of Greve in Chianti, Italy by mdu architetti

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

Article source: mdu architetti

The New Municipal Library of Greve in Chianti, designed by mdu architetti, represents a further step, after the opening of the New Theatre of Montalto di Castro (Italy), in a period of prolific output for this Italian architecture studio, engaged in the realization of several projects inspired by a common thread: architecture as an urban fragment. The Libray of Greve in Chianti  interprets the theme, presenting itself as a light  sculptural volume in terracotta leaned on a travertine stone plinth. The terracotta facade, with its subtle texturals and graphic variations, is conceived as an abstract representation of the signs and colours in the  vineyards of the Chianti region.

Located in Canada’s beautiful Muskoka region, the Carling Residence was built for a young couple looking to leave the city behind. The 3600 square foot home is set into a rustic forest on the shores of the Georgian Bay.

Villa Řitka in Czech Republic by Studio pha

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

Article source: Studio pha

The basic idea is a kind of enclosure of the building in and on itself, and the use of the sloping ground to divide the building into a two-storey main residential part on the upper part of the land and a lower building containing the garages and entrance hall further down the slope. The result is essentially a two-storey house with a flat roof, positioned atop the concrete “retaining wall” of the lower structure. The house’s plan is of “U”-shape, or equally it could be described as a rectangle with an interior atrium open on one side to the surrounding landscape. Inside the atrium is a small pool, which ensures for this space pleasant cooling, reinforced by the system of louvered blinds against the sun.

BRIEF
To design a house for a family of ten people spanning three generations.

CONCEPT
The house is an attempt to blur the boundaries between exterior and the interior of an urban house. The concept of the house is an illustration of a metamorphosis of eastern spatial interiors and western aesthetics. It was designed for two brothers, on two separate levels yet connected without exposing oneself to the harsh weather conditions.

WHITE CANVAS ON A GREEN ROOF by Martine Brisson

Sunday, February 3rd, 2013

Article source: Martine Brisson

Martine Brisson designed the landscaping of the roof terrace of the former residence and studio of painter Betty Goodwin, for which she has just won one of the GRANDS PRIX DU DESIGN 2012 in the “Terrace” category. Always keeping in mind a feeling of warmth, functionality, and simplicity, Brisson created an outdoor environment that is coherent yet open, with different functional zones (kitchen, living area, bathroom, garden, etc.) that fit together as naturally as the rooms in an interior space.
