360 Villa in The Netherlands by 123DV

Sunday, April 9th, 2017

Article source: 123DV

The family consists of a couple and their beautiful Alaskan malamute dogs. This time, our slogan ‘Living in a tailored suit’ got a special dynamic: the tailoring of our design to the requirements of an ultimate personal experience of living also concerned the arctic dogs that are important in their lives. It is important for the couple to stay in contact with their dogs, both in and outside of the house. The dogs ask a lot of attention and therefore they need a lot of contact with their owners. Also the dogs need a shelter outside.

Grid in Japan by Satoshi Kurosaki / APOLLO Architects & Associates

Sunday, April 9th, 2017

Article source: Satoshi Kurosaki / APOLLO Architects & Associates 

The client for this project has a large art collection, and wanted to start a new chapter in life with his family in a house with museum-like qualities that would take advantage of this collection. The neighborhood surrounding the site is quiet, so in order to keep noise to a minimum and not create an intrusive feeling, we proposed a single-story reinforced concrete structure. Like the exterior, the interior features a monochrome color scheme that serves as a good background for artwork. The building and finishing materials were also carefully selected and kept to a minimum, giving the spaces an austere atmosphere.

Jose María Escriva Church in Mexico City by Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos

Sunday, April 9th, 2017

Article source: Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos 

Located on a reclaimed urban site in Santa Fe; the Josemaría Escrivá Church and Community Center is built around the relationship between architecture and light. The design concept began with the repetition of seven golden rectangles, over which are traced two curved lines that refer to the traditional Ichthus or fish symbol. These rise up in straight lines set on a diagonal to form a Cross of Light. On the outside, this geometric union forms two curved mantles clad with zinc panels. These generate interesting textures as the sun moves during the day. On the inside, the walls are clad with strips of wood that adapt to the curved walls that rise up without touching and allow light to enter .

Black Flying House in Czech Republic by H3T Architekti

Sunday, April 9th, 2017

Article source: BoysPlayNice 

Black flying house hovers under the arch of the old railway bridge. Attracts attention, entices you to visit and raises questions. Black flying house is an installation which is composed of a living room with a stove and a sleeping loft. The object is suspended by steel cables. The installation includes also a ladder that is hidden nearby. It’s a bit of a conundrum that encourages passers-by to think. Its archetypal depiction adds the mysterious atmosphere of the military complex. This area is located just 15 minutes walking from the city centre of town Pardubice, Czech Republic. The formal solution is succinct. The resulting picture almost picturesque.

Parterre One in Kaserne Basel, Switzerland by FOCKETYN DEL RIO STUDIO

Sunday, April 9th, 2017

Article source: FOCKETYN DEL RIO STUDIO

Parterre One is located in Kaserne Basel, a heritage protected ensemble in the heart of Basel. Kaserne used to be military barracks and has been converted into a cultural hub for the last 50 years, since the army left. Our client had a new vision for his corner: he had a restaurant, a bar, and a venue that were next to each other but never worked together. Our mission was to make one cultural and leisure pole with the three of them.  Within this frame the project became an architectural geode: an existing building with refreshed facades and a surprising interior around a thunderbolt gallery.
