Article source: MHM architects

The boathouse was built as a solitary building at the Seebodner lakeside of the Millstätter lake in Carinthia. The location of the construction is characterized by the intersection line between water and soil, directly at the foot a precipitous slope in which also the remaining buildings of the property complex are situated. Due to their elevated position, those houses have an extensive view at the south and the west façade of the boathouse.

The development that completes the urban composition programme of the town of  Hérouville-Saint-Clair is an enterprise centre to the west of the Place de l’Europe.

MMR in Chalais, Switzerland by Archi7

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

Article source: Archi7

The project is inscribed within the urban tissue of Réchy. It contributes for the densification of the village, emphasizes the street front defined by its neighboring existing buildings and re-enforces the rural character of the site. Its compact volume, which scarcely uses land surface, restricts its visual impact.

Archipelago House in Stockholm Archipelago, Sweden by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

Article source: Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

The starting point is the direct relation to the dramatic archipelago landscape with the objective to offer within a simple frame – a platform – several diverse readings of the relation space-nature.

Conceived as a light weight construction in wood and glass, this summerhouse is built in the outer Stockholm archipelago. The horizontal character of the black stained exterior relates to the verticals of tall grown pines and the mirrored views of the Baltic Sea.
