Geo Metria in Kanagawa, Japan by MOUNT FUJI ARCHITECTS STUDIO

Sunday, July 7th, 2013

Article source: MOUNT FUJI ARCHITECTS STUDIO

Structure of the land
On the crest of Hakone´s mountain range along the Odawara plain is a site. It´s sunny rolling hillside was once planted with fruit trees. On the south side you have a clear view of the distant Sagami Bay, north of the site a mountain gives shelter from the north wind. Deciduous broad-leaved trees cast soothing shadow in summer, in winter they shed their leaves and allow weak sunlight to warm up the moist mountain soil. The perfect living environment was there, waiting quietly to be found. Rather than bringing a new priciple that is not derived from the land in order to complete a „normal“ house, a place of habitability should be established here.

The single-family home by MICHELE GAMBATO ARCHITECT

Saturday, July 6th, 2013

Article source: MICHELE GAMBATO ARCHITECT

The single-family home is a project set up as a review of the traditional country house, where living spaces are small, and the spaces such as stables, barns and porches were a much bigger proportion as this was needed and was an essential element for the family.

In this project the vast empty spaces of the old farmhouse is reinterpreted in a modern way. The porch, was a feature of protection from the sun and weather and to filter access to the stables and the barn.

Helsinki Central Library in FINLAND by ALA ARCHITECTS

Saturday, July 6th, 2013

Article source: ALA ARCHITECTS

Käännös’ grows from the dynamic between the site and the goals of the library program. The interplay between the building’s three individual floors is the key concept of the entry. The public plaza in front of the building will continue inside, merging with a catalogue of meeting and experience features. The ground floor will be a robust, busy and frequently updated space suitable for quick visits and walkthroughs. The active, zero-threshold public spaces will be visible, attractive, understandable and welcoming to all visitors.

LA ESTANCIA CHAPEL in Cuernavaca, Mexico by Bunker Arquitectura

Saturday, July 6th, 2013

Article source: Bunker Arquitectura

La Estancia Wedding Gardens were conceived in a traditional Mexican baroque colonial style. When one of Bunker’s associates decided to marry here it was made known to us that the owners had been toying for some time with the idea of building a chapel in the same style as their gardens, since all previous weddings took place under a light canvas canopy roof. They found very romantic the idea of an architect designing the chapel he would marry in so the commission was granted to us.

29 sqm in Wroclaw, Poland by 3XA

Saturday, July 6th, 2013

Article source: 3XA 

29 sqm is a rather small space to live in. Therefore the priority of this makeover was to maximize the space and to create an independent bedroom. The ceiling at 3,7m didn’t allow the designer to create two equivalent levels, but it was possible to build a semi-mezzanine.

The Regional Council of Judea District in Beit Shemesh, Israel by YBGSNA

Saturday, July 6th, 2013

Article source: YBGSNA

Our proposal for the new Regional Council of Building of the District of Judea is based on a balance between our desire to insert a modest intervention in the landscape and a need to design a public building with a substantial formal presence. The relatively large lot (almost 20 dunam) and the modest program, led us to divide the areas into three building masses: a formal “cube” at the upper road with two wings at the lower road, embracing a public plaza.

Emporia in Kansas by Wingårdh Arkitektkontor AB

Saturday, July 6th, 2013

Article source: Wingårdh Arkitektkontor AB

Emporia is first and foremost an urban planning project in which offices, housing, and retail come together in a mixed-use development along Boulevarden and Stationsgatan in Hyllie, on the south side of Malmö. The main idea of our winning competition entry was to hide inward-looking retail behind a wreath of residential and commercial buildings. The whole shopping complex would thereby eventually become integrated into the fabric of the city.
