Salmtal Secondary School Canteen in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany by SpreierTrenner Architekten

Saturday, December 1st, 2012

Article source: SpreierTrenner Architekten

The new school canteen of the Salmtal Secondary School in Germany was designed by SpreierTrenner Architekten (www.spreiertrenner.de) as a multifunctional building with the greatest possible flexibility. The space is used not only by children to eat every day, but also for special events such as music concerts, theatre plays or even Christmas fairs. This is why the main room was set out with a column-free square plan only subdivided by a mobile wall. The adjoining section at the rear contains all supporting facilities, such as a kitchen, storage space, toilets and staff facilities, etc. It has been set out with the option of extending it in the future.

Article source: Studio Chris Kabel

Façade for a residential building by Abbink X de Haas architects and housing cooperation de Key in the center of Amsterdam. Aluminum sheets are perforated with a pattern that allows the shapes to be bent up or down. When bent up the surface catches the (sun)light and bent down the surface is shaded. In this way intricate graphics can be applied onto the building with punch perforated panels without the use of expensive laser cutting. Bent turns shadow into ink.

Under The Roof in Biscay, Spain by Foraster Arquitectos

Friday, November 30th, 2012

Article source: Foraster Arquitectos

The urbanistic legislation in Mungia, a town near Bilbao (Spain), forces the use in new constructions of a gable roof with tile, in order to keep an identifiable architectural style in the area. It is certainly good to seek architectural uniformity –experience has shown that without doing so it can lead to aesthetic crimes. But it does not preclude seeking original solutions to update existing typologies.

Serengeti House in Johannesburg, South Africa by Nico van der Meulen Architects

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

Article source: Nico van der Meulen Architects

This is a Johannesburg home, located on a suburban golf estate, in Africa. The home’s visual success is due to its perfectly balanced application of earthy textures against high-gloss finishes, and raw material against refined elements.

“The brief”, says Rudolph van der Meulen of Nico van der Meulen Architects, “was to create a stylish family home with ecologically sound design that maximized indoor-outdoor living to take full advantage of Johannesburg’s legendary eight-month summer”.

The Gaillard Hall in Dahlonega, Georgia by Lord, Aeck & Sargent

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

Article source: Lord, Aeck & Sargent

Back in the early 1950s, when noted Atlanta architect Richard L. Aeck stood with his 4-year-old son Tony on a reviewing stand overlooking North Georgia College’s revered drill field at the center of campus, he could not have known that the military barracks he was designing for a site opposite the stand would some 60 years later be restored and rehabilitated by the descendant architecture firm to his own Aeck Associates.

Gaillard Hall at North Georgia College & State University is a good example of international style architecture and was saved from demolition due to its historic significance as the campus’ best example of mid-20th century architecture and its unique proximity and relationship to the historic drill field. © 2012 Jonathan Hillyer

Résidence Bromont in Canada By Blouin Tardif Architecture-Environnement

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

Article source: Blouin Tardif Architecture-Environnement

Situated on a hill in the undulating countryside of Bromont, this secondary residence sits, between forest and clearing, at the end of a road burnished by time. The challenge consisted of evoking the vernacular architecture of the Eastern Townships while affirming the project’s contemporary nature and integrating the building into the landscape with minimal impact. The project blends with its surroundings through the simple forms of the rectangular plan and the metal gable roof.
