Galilée in Toulouse, France by Studio Bellecour Architects

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Article source: Studio Bellecour Architects

Galilée is one of the debut projects realized in the UDZ (Urban Development Zone) Andromède, in Blagnac, near Toulouse in France. The particular urban details of this UDZ in Blagnac provided a unique climate for the development of a quality architectural project. The aesthetic of Galilée results from a combination of an interpretation of these urban rules, the immediate aeronautical context, and from the environmental requirements given in the specifications of the UDZ.

Light stage house in Hiroshima, Japan by Future Studio

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Article source: Future Studio

The concept of this house, “sunlight stage” is a proposal of the way of taking sunlight on the site where the condition of sunlight is severe. The taking point of sunlight is set to a high position of the north side of the house, and all plans arise there. It becomes the plan of the curved surface because running on of the sun is analyzed, and the angle of incidence is calculated, and brightness is brought to the residence space by the reflection of sunlight.

L-Shaped House in Belgium by Cocoon Architecten

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Article source: Cocoon Architecten

This house for a small family is located in a residential area in Belgium.  In this first stage, the client asked for a small house with a high level of detail.  After some time, the house will be enlarged by adding some additional volumes to accommodate their future needs. Because of the shape and location of the land, three important points were to be considered when designing the house.

L-Shaped House

  • Architects: Cocoon Architecten
  • Project: L-Shaped House
  • Location: Belgium
  • Software used: Generally using Autodesk Autocad 2012 and Revit 2012, combined with 3DStudio Design 2012 and Sketchup in the office. For this project Autocad seemed the best choice due to the small size of the project and difficulty of the details.  In Revit it would have been much more time consuming.

Refurbishment of an old Marketplace in Alcaniz, Spain by Miquel mariné+césar rueda boné

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

Article source: Miquel mariné+césar rueda boné

The old marketplace of Alcañiz has not been home to a market for some years, but now it has once again become a part of the town square, an area for socializing, passing time, and education. The enormous space inside the building has been reconnected to its environment via the introduction of a newly built element. Independent of the existing structure, it is an exercise of occupation strategic, respectful and reversible. Its two levels are enclosed within a homogenous and continuous skin.

“Hot Paper” restaurant & modern food in Tczew, Poland by Wamhouse

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

Article source: Wamhouse

The restaurant design included not only interiors, but also the name of the restaurant, logo and elevation, that is comprehensive image setting. The leading element is a newspaper motif, which appears both in the restaurant name and in the interior itself – in the form of a wallpaper as well as “torn” walls and furniture.  The guests of the restaurant were supposed to be surprised with the name thereof, not knowing what to expect – hot news or meals from a hot newspaper.
