Parliament of the German Speaking Community in Eupen, Belgium by Atelier Kempe Thill Architects

Saturday, January 18th, 2014

Article source: Atelier Kempe Thill Architects

After the end of World War I, with the Treaty of Versailles of 1919, the neutral area surrounding the municipality of Kelmis, Belgium, and the German administrative district of Eupen-Malmedy, Belgium, are annexed. As a result, some seventy thousand Germans become Belgian citizens. Since large-scale state reforms are enacted (1968–1971), Belgium officially consists not only of the Flemish and Walloon Regions along with Brussels but also of the German-speaking community with its recognized rights and autonomies.

The house Chapéu Virado in Cascais, not created by a notorious author, belongs to an extremely rich period of Portuguese Architecture, in which confronted two realities, the architectural modernity on one hand and on the other, the tradition represented by the architect Raul Lino, very famous Portuguese architect in the middle of the XX century.

ALEXANDRA RESIDENCE in Montreal, Canada by NatureHumaine

Saturday, January 18th, 2014

Article source: NatureHumaine

The client’s priority was to maximize the natural light in their new live/work house in Montreal’s Mile-Ex district. This was made challenging by the east-west orientation of the infill lot. However, our design fills even the core of the house with light through the implementation of a 2 storey light-well which runs the length of the southern side of the house.

Dp Aquaterra by Tectoniques Architects

Saturday, January 18th, 2014

Article source: Tectoniques Architects

Land of the Brave
After a call for ideas addressed to the local residents, the Maison de l’Environnement et du Développement Durable (Centre for the Environment & Sustainable Development) of the Hénin-Carvin Joint Urban Authority adopted the name Aquaterra. The facility is in the middle of a large park on the site of the former Drocourt coking plant. Founded in 1925, this was one of Europe’s largest coke production plants. After changes in the coal and steel industries in the late 20th century, the plant finally closed in 2002. All of the developments were quickly demolished, leaving just a large platform and some terrils (slag heaps). The marked, polluted ground and the slag heaps, mountains and hills, composed of inert but emblematic masses in this flat landscape, are the only relief visible from a long distance.

V’ House in Maastricht, Netherlands by Wiel Arets Architects

Saturday, January 18th, 2014

Article source: Wiel Arets Architects

V’ House was constructed for a couple that collects vintage cars, and is stitched within the medieval tapestry of Maastricht. The city dictates all new structures remain within the envelope of pre-existing buildings, and so a cut was created in the house’s front façade to generate a triangulated surface, which leads from one neighbor’s sloped roof to the opposite neighbor’s vertical bearing wall.

Pilot IKC Zeeburgereiland in Amsterdam by Studioninedots

Friday, January 17th, 2014

Article source: Studioninedots

The school of the 21st century needs to satisfy a long list of demands, some of which seem at first to be contradictory. It needs to have character and function as an anchoring point within the neighbourhood. It must be multifunctional, flexible, energy-efficient, sustainable, affordable, and possible to build within just a few months. Impossible? No. In fact, it was recently completed: the Integraal Kindcentrum (Integral Child Centre, IKC) Zeeburgereiland in Amsterdam, designed by Studioninedots. The building was opened on 29 November.
