HOUSE WIND in Jalisco, México by Agraz Arquitectos

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

Article source: Agraz Arquitectos

Every project has a connotation that makes it different, unique and unrepeatable. The Wind House has two unusual features, the first one is that it is in a suburb that has not been built yet, having no neighbors whatsoever, and it faces the stunning Primavera Woods. The other one is it’s calling to be a house where kids will grow, the youngest a newborn and the eldest only four years old. And this is doubtlessly the real job, to create the scenery where this kid’s childhood will take place, and therefore several aspects are handled differently.

Art-Palace by TOTEMENT | PAPER

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

Article source: TOTEMENT | PAPER

The main task of this project, to our opinion, is creation of a new city contexture resolving a visual conflict between the image of modern European city (with the “Izmailovo” hotel complex constituting a part of it) a new growth (rather interesting to the public and a brand identity of the area) that does not blend in the city situation where original historical and cultural monuments are less sizable and more chamber, rather than the grandiose historical stylization.

Article source: Bierman Henket architecten

The Wilhelminaplein in Leeuwarden, also known as het Zaailand, has undergone a radical transformation. The enormous square has been re-duced considerably by the addition of the new Fries Museum on the east side and a street front of housing and shops on the north side. The existing Zaailand shopping centre has been given a facelift. This combination of commercial and cultural functions creates a lively, urban atmosphere.
