Grand Hall complex at the ZAMEK Culture Centre in Poznan, Poland by Toya Design

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

Article source: Toya Design

In 2007, when we set out with the competition for a design to modernize the castle we had one goal: to create a space where its recipient becomes its subject. So that those who find themselves within that space may feel it has been made bespoke for them. Functional and open.

Thus far, the castle had been different – it intimidated people with the labyrinth of rooms and the vastness of dark halls. With its immense programme and the appetite for even more activity, the Culture Centre suffocated in the heavy body of the neo-Romanesque edifice.  Hence the need for a change – uncompromising, bold and comprehensive.

The Beaumont House in Montreal, Canada by Henri Cleinge, Architecte

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

Article source: Henri Cleinge, Architecte

Inspired to create a home to be experienced by all five senses, the Beaumont concrete house evolved as an exploration project. The design, understated, is situated in a mixed use neighborhood where residential duplexes coexist with small to midsize industrial buildings. Despite the project’s integration, a number of features distinguish the project from other buildings in the area.

MICA in Nuevo Leon, México by Savvy Studio

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

Article source: Savvy Studio

MICA is a contemporary jewellery house which specialises in custom made pieces. Its name derives from a group of minerals that are characterised by their malleability which makes them ideal for various uses – some which are purely aesthetic. Expanding its most basic and primitive character, MICA’s identity is based on the amorphic nature of the rocks, the asymmetry of their profiles and their unique existence – no two rocks are alike – making all of MICA’s pieces truly unique.

Nursery School in Berriozar, Spain by Javier Larraz Arquitectos

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

Article source: Javier Larraz, Iñigo Beguiristain and Iñaki Bergera

According to Louis I. Kahn the first school began under a tree, when a man who knew he was a teacher began to discuss what he had learned with others who did not know they were students. Like those students, children under 3 years old learn intuitively and unconsciously. Drawing a parallel with the story of Kahn, one might wonder about the role that tree, that is, architecture, plays in the practice of teaching.

Bularnia in Krakow, Poland by BudCud

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

Article source: BudCud

Bularnia is an honest, functional office space on the ground floor of postindustrial building on the outskirts of Cracov. The goal was to introduce more natural light to dark and overpowering interior. This move redefined new proportions of space and optically enlarged narrow and low room. What’s more, light and transparent finishing materials, such as glass, delicate steel mesh and perforated boards were used to emphasize the openness of new office space.

Can Bisa is a late-19th century mansion now owned by Vilassar de Mar Council. Situated on the Riera de Cabrils watercourse, it occupies part of a street block that used to include a factory, now demolished. Its historic and heritage value and the strategic position it occupies in the town as a whole led the Council to consider it the ideal venue for a cultural facility, completing the complex with a social housing block.
