Competition for Mo I Rana Waterfront (1st place) in Norway by arkitektgruppen cubus

Saturday, February 22nd, 2014

Article source: arkitektgruppen cubus

Mo i Rana has always had a primarily functional relationship to the fjord, which has been one of two major transport systems serving the local industries of iron- and concrete production, the other being the railway. The town is located far inland and the fjord has always served as a main connection with the rest of the world. The railway has served as the other main pulse connecting the town to the east and south, in addition to the two main roads E6 and E12. The railway track runs straight through the centre of the town and acts as a physical barrier between the town proper and the fjord, only surmounted by bridges or underground tunnels. This prevents the establishment of a physical and programmatic continuity linking the two.

Article source: santamaria.arquitectes 

The project designs the urbanization of a foot path located on the South slope of the Puigcardener, a small hill where the history of Manresa began and where the present Old Town starts, in the South end of the town. The hill raises next to the Cardener river, taking advantage of its height, comparing to the level of the rest of the town, with a good view of the city entrance and the county surroundings.

Family house Palkovice in Frýdek-Místek, Czech Republic by QARTA ARCHITEKTURA

Saturday, February 22nd, 2014

Article source: QARTA ARCHITEKTURA

The house is situated in the periphery of Palkovice, nearby Frýdek Místek. From this site is the view of the Beskydy mountains. The first idea was to reconstruct the old house on this parcel. The original house was situated in the middle of the garden and the architecture of the house was a product of the nineties of the 20th century. After a long effort to modify the old house and to adapt it for the new requirements, we have find out, this is not the right way. So we have decided to build a new house.

Özyeğin University School of English Language Instruction (SELI) in Çekmeköy Campus, Turkey by ARK

Saturday, February 22nd, 2014

Article source: ARK

In the heart of Ozyegin University’s campus, the SELI building is composed as a “hinge” to allow a pivotal shift in the axial organized structures and pedestrian movement within the campus.  The building’s internal and external organization reinforces the transition from the high levels of the main educational campus down to the lower levels of the sports and residential campus.

Casa Baladrar in Benissa, Alicante by Langarita-Navarro Arquitectos

Saturday, February 22nd, 2014

Article source: Langarita-Navarro Arquitectos

The scattered and trans-European city that the mountainous coast of Alicante has become, houses a heterogeneous population that is drawn to the sun, the sea, the temperate climate, the convenient public services and the leafy greenery. The promise of relaxing and hedonistic experiences captivates both seasonal tourists and long-term residents who see their expectations fulfilled amongst jasmine and bougainvilleas. The project draws from this context and is designed to meet the demands of multiple families in the summertime and as a haven for retirees the rest of the year.

Bus Station Canopy in Aarau, Switzerland by Vehovar & Jauslin Architektur

Friday, February 21st, 2014

Article source: Vehovar & Jauslin Architektur 

As the central public transport hub for the entire region, the train station in Aarau serves as a point of departure, arrival and transfer for more than 40,000 train and bus travelers every day. Due to assorted small structures, street furniture, art objects and planters that had gathered over time, the station forecourt was barely still perceived as a public open space. Bahnhofstrasse, the street leading to the train station, was a spatially defining axis dominated by car traffic, thus cutting the space off from the surroundings. That is why a new station forecourt with a bus terminal and optimized public access was also envisaged along with construction of the new train station. After lengthy preparatory work in close dialogue with various interest groups, the Aarau populace approved the project with an overwhelming majority in 2009.

House in the woods near King’s Forest in Potsdam (near Berlin), Germany by claim

Friday, February 21st, 2014

Article source: claim

Small spaciousness

The house in the woods is a residence for a couple and their guests. Despite the very limited area available for construction and the users’ requirements regarding the number of beds and rooms, a residence with a perceptible spaciousness arose. Starting from the ‘bungalow’ stereotype, the design sets openness against seclusion, introduces smooth transitions in contrast to set boundaries, emphasizes the correlation of surface and volume and, in this way, overlays the familiar with the new.

RS1 – 002 Kennedy Residence in Vancouver, Canada by Campos Leckie Studio

Friday, February 21st, 2014

Article source: Campos Leckie Studio

The project was conceived as a modernist prototype for Vancouver’s ubiquitous RS-1 zoning district. The project explored the development restrictions of the residential regulations as well as the limitations of building within an urban context. The process was meant to generate a set of guidelines for what we have termed a ‘flexible prototype’ that could address the contextual differences of individual sites in a way that allows for a customized integration of passive environmental strategies, the incorporation of exterior space as part of everyday living, and the provision of an affordable and flexible live work space.
