Cadogan Cafe in Chelsea, UK by Edgley Design

Thursday, May 16th, 2013

Article source: Edgley Design

Our proposal aims to improve the social function and attractiveness of Duke of York square. The café is a bold and distinct formal proposition, framed by and reacting to the particular scale, proportion and environmental conditions of the historic site. Recessed landscaping extends the café’s seating into the surrounding pavement.

SERO in Lleida, Spain by Estudi D’arquitectura Toni Gironès

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

Article source: Estudi D’arquitectura Toni Gironès

During the January of 2007, the construction works of a secondary pipe of the water distribution mains in Segarra-Garrigues system, caused an unexpected appearance of archaeological ruins from an ancient construction for 4.800 years in Seró (Artesa de Segre, Lleida). The most important point of this discovery was the megalithic nature of sandstone slabs and specially the accuracy of geometrical decoration sculpted. Stones with soft relief that, at the same time, were parts of ancient statues reused from a previous sculptural monument.

House Like Garden in Amsterdam, Netherlands by Marc Koehler Architects

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

Article source: Marc Koehler Architects

The 140m2 house is located on a small plot in IJburg; a recently developed suburb of the city of Amsterdam. The house is designed as a vertical garden giving space to flora and fauna to grow in a densely urbanized area. Closed private spaces contrast with open collective spaces, that seem to have been ‘carved out’ from the solid volume as a continuous transparent void. In this way the interior space is visually and physically connected to the street, the garden and roof terraces.

Hämeenkyrö Environmental School in Finland by Hyperbuildings

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

Article source: Hyperbuildings

Mahnala environmental school is located in a rural setting in central Finland a few kilometers north of the city of Tampere. Currently the school is housed in an old building dating from 1903. This building is highly representative of the Finnish vernacular school- house of the time. As such it is an iconic symbol of the long-standing tradition of educational facilities on the site. The old building, however, has been undersized to house the activities of the growing municipality for years already.

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

Article source: Eduardo Fdez.-Abascal Teira + Florentina Muruzábal Sitges

The house and the workshop are located in a plot in a small housing estate in Mijares. It has good accessibility, a rural environment and far views of the mountains. The design solves a complex program, considering the determinations of the planning and the characteristics of the site: access from the good orientation; a sloped, trapezium shaped plot; orientations; sights; adjacent buildings; and the presence of a great tree, a salix fragilix.
