Air Force Villages by Perkins Eastman

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

Article source: Perkins Eastman

A home to call one’s own – a private bedroom and bath, ample shared living space, and a front door where family and friends can be greeted. These are the principles that guided Air Force Villages in the search for their model of culture change and initiated a repositioning of its two self-contained campuses—one campus offering a more urban lifestyle and the other a more rural one. Their vision called for a strong physical connection between each home that would allow for efficient staff and service delivery as well as building a stronger sense of community.

11 DWELLINGS in Sainte-Eulalie, France by La Nouvelle Agence

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

Article source: La Nouvelle Agence

The village of Sainte-Eulalie sits about twenty kilometers from Bordeaux (France). The site is at the edge of the rural town’s center. On the site, the corner building is rehabilitated, and ten new apartments are created on the remainder of the plot. Taken together, the individual dwellings define a housing block, larger than the original mansion, which frames a communal courtyard in the center. The proposal is careful to offer the best exposure for each building, and the highest quality of space for each apartment, as well as the collective spaces between dwellings.

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

Article source: Arhitektura d.o.o.

The owner is a successful Slovenian businessman who spends some of his spare time in the countryside. The property is situated on the edge of a small village on top of a hill, and consists of farm land, forest, residential building, barn house, apiary and wooden pavilion used as a tool shack. The client decided to replace the broken-down barn house with a new, multi-functional building, a sort of “modern Slovenian hayrack”. The building is intended for dispensing honey, sorting, handling and drying fruit, storage of crops and tools, while the spacious ground floor is intended as a meeting place to host partners from abroad and celebrate family events.
