Bodypuzzle in Vienna, Austria by heri&salli

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

Article source: heri&salli

The architect’s office heri&salli from Vienna/Austria designed in an apartment of a private building owner a bathroom where mutually alternating fragmentary mirror surfaces and lighting fixtures form a conglomerate like a jigsaw puzzle of an image and a reflection. Sections of the room are more indicated momentarily than carried through. Man nowadays renews almost at will the outer appearance of his body or in other words of the parts of his body. From a superficial point of view it’s possible to say that a human being consists more of fragments than a grown entity.

Housing in Valdemorillo, Spain by Otto Medem Arquitectura

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

Article source: Otto Medem Arquitectura

The project is commissioned by a couple of journalists who seek peace on the outskirts of the city. The house is broken into 3 volumes to suit the rugged topography of the land. The pieces are positioned to find the best views of the mountains and take in the serenity. Solar positioning was also considered with the placement of each room, depending on its designated use. The union of these 3 parts is established through the connection of their facades, with bands that cross and give expression to the project.

CASA ZR in San Luis Potosi, México by TaAG Arquitectura

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

Article source: TaAG Arquitectura

The project comes on the first \”closed\” residential subdivision in San Luis Potosi City, with regulations very oppressive and contradictory, where a colonial Mexican style is required (with all complications and possible interpretations of the theme)
The challenge was to get a house with a ‘contemporary’ language despite the regulation that was designed to build houses with the classical typologies of the eighties.

Article source: Oasys Property Solutions

Black on White in Wenzenbach, Germany by Fabi Architekten BDA

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

Article source: Fabi Architekten BDA

A house like an archetype. As a prelude to the castle “Schönberg” (12th century) at the Wehrgraben – site of a former guard house. The house consists of two building volumes – one homogeneous, black saddle roof building lying turned and cantilevered on a white flat roof box. A minimal intrusion into the hillside topography. The volumes open up targeted to the natural space, the forest. The buildings to the sorroundings shine quiet and conciseness– unambiguity.

ME Hotel opens in London by Foster and Partners

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

Article source: Foster and Partners

The triangular site of the ME Hotel on the corner of Aldwych was once the home of the Gaiety Theatre, which was damaged during the war and demolished to make way for an office development. Completing the grand sweep of buildings that make up the 1920s crescent, the new scheme repairs the urban grain and restores a little lost glamour to the heart of the West End. The project, which is due to open in summer 2012, is the first flagship hotel in which everything, from the shell of the building to the bathroom fittings, has been designed by Foster + Partners – the result is an elegant fusion of interior and exterior design that signals a new contemporary approach for London’s boutique hotels.
