Nursing and Residential Home by AMVC Arquitectos Associados

The building takes advantage of the North / South soil inclination and thus has a privileged sun exposure. In this sense, the construction is dematerialized in two arms that are articulated in the area of access and permits the best exposure according the distribution of the program.

CONCRETE CONTRAST

This OYO story takes you to Herent, where the extension of a private residence captures its surroundings. The inhabitants wanted an extension that was flexible enough to be transformed in time to a separate unite with its own bed- and bathroom. OYO emphasized the contrast between the new shape and the old volume, which used to be an post office.

Esteban Housing in Nantes, France by Leibar-Seigneurin

Friday, October 4th, 2013

Article source: Leibar-Seigneurin

The starting point for the architectural approach of this project was a piece of “virgin” land, the form and profile of which gave little indication of the mutations to come.

We therefore considered the site as a starting point, a “base” on which different types of architecture could be developed.

SERPENTINE SACKLER GALLERY in London by Zaha Hadid Architects

Friday, October 4th, 2013

Article source: Zaha Hadid Architects

The Serpentine Sackler Gallery consists of two distinct parts, namely the conversion of a classical 19th century brick structure – The Magazine – and a 21st century tensile structure. The Serpentine Sackler Gallery is thus – after MAXXI in Rome – the second art space where Zaha Hadid Architects have created a synthesis of old and new. The Magazine was designed as a Gunpowder Store in 1805. It comprises two raw brick barrel vaulted spaces (where the gunpowder was stored) and a lower square-shaped surrounding structure with a frontal colonnade. The building continued to be in military use until 1963. Since then Royal Parks used the building for storage. The Magazine thus remained underutilised until now. Over time, much amendment and alteration has occurred inside the historic building and its surroundings.

Renovation of Former Dominican Monastery to Ptuj Performance Center in Slovenia by ENOTA

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

Article source: ENOTA

The Dominican monastery in Ptuj boasts more than 800 years of history, which is, in various degrees of apparentness, expressed in its building structure. The Dominicans came to Ptuj in the early 13th century, when they were given a plot within the city walls, at the very edge of the west corner. Alongside the existing Romanesque buildings, they began the construction of the monastery and the church, whose transformation of its Romanesque configuration to the current Baroque form had several interim Gothic phases. The rest of the monastery complex shares a similar fate also; however, much more of the Mediaeval, Gothic structure is preserved there.

Barnsbury House in London, England by MARK DZIEWULSKI ARCHITECT

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

Article source: MARK DZIEWULSKI ARCHITECT

This mixed-use project is located fronting one of London’s attractive garden squares. Planning approval has been granted and construction will begin shortly. It contains three floors of residential units above commercial business space. The existing square, like many in London, has developed over the years with a large variety of different building types, scales and styles.  It is this variety that gives the square its character and charm. Each period has provided its own example of what was, at the time, considered contemporary architecture. This design is intended to provide a well mannered and proud example of what our era can contribute to the rich architectural heritage of the area.

THE TURBULENCES FRAC CENTRE in Orléans, France by Jakob+MacFarlane

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

Article source: Jakob+MacFarlane

The architectural idea is to take the entire site, which determines the surface of intervention. We identified two predominate grids emanating from the historic context of the site. The meeting and the convergence of these two geometries materialises in a deformation, a zone of turbulence, the future presence of the FRAC Centre.

BITTEN HOUSE by Arnau Estudi d’Arquitectura

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

Article source: Arnau Estudi d’Arquitectura

On a river bank, at the bottom of a valley, open to distant cliffs, this simple house shows us closed as a box to keeping small treasures: the first morning sun, the church tower view at the other side of the river, the precipitous cliffs, the maze of trunks of riparian forest… All possessions jealously guarded by the house without knowing that, in fact, is she who belongs to them.
