In der Wiesen Süd in Vienna, Austria by Dietrich | Untertrifaller Architekten

Friday, May 25th, 2018

Article source: Dietrich | Untertrifaller Architekten

The housing complex In der Wiesen Süd consists of five buildings arranged on the site in order to create a serene environment for the inhabitants. The area opens wide towards the north and closes more densely towards the south, where it allows visual perspectives on the street.
The group in the southern area is developed by ARTEC architects, while Dietrich | Untertrifaller designed the northern part with three tower-like building structures. In the green space to the north, these higher buildings form a central and quiet area for the residents. The two six-storey buildings take the shape of a flattened hexagon around a hollow core. The numerous balconies offer each apartment different views of the park and the city. The rooms on the ground floor and on the garden level are home to small shops, workshops and offices. An atrium is placed at the core of the building and brings natural light into the access zones. The roof accommodates some community facilities of the residential complex, as well as private gardens.

Sunny Apartment is located in Taichung, one of the typical units of Taiwanese housing.

Peter’s House in Copenhagen, Denmark by Studio David Thulstrup

Thursday, May 24th, 2018

Article source: Studio David Thulstrup 

The renowned photographer Peter Krasilnikoff commissioned architecture practice Studio David Thulstrup for his private residence and studio in the Islands Brygge harbour-side district of Copenhagen.

The guiding inspiration for the project evolved from worn-out warehouses and factories with their blackened steel and old bricks; a concept direction which was sparked by the desire to retain the three raw-brick walls of the original garage building on the site.

Apartment for P&M in Budapest, Hungary by GASPARBONTA

Thursday, May 24th, 2018

Article source: GASPARBONTA

When I first visited this apartment (a 160 sqm part of a beautiful villa from the 30s), it charmed me instantly. My client, whom I’ve been working with for quite some time now felt it too, it had a certain fairy taleish magic moving around the walls. It was around that time he told me that he’s going to marry his girlfriend, whom he was living in an apartment I designed him earlier. This all made perfect sense in my head, a new part of life for the young couple and a new part of life for the old building. They all needed the same thing: a fresh start, a new canvas.

El Establo in Alajuela, Costa Rica by Plup! Studio Costa Rica

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018

Article source: Plup! Studio Costa Rica

Located in a rural area in the outskirts of San Jose, is [El Establo]. A project that was thought to have a very honest relationship with both its natural and constructed context. The concept of the project stems from the structures for the stables, very common in the area that regularly has horse’s establishments.

A relatively warm zone throughout the year motivated us to implement climate conditioning strategies such as long overhangs and cross ventilation, typical of tropical architecture. The area, although it is 20 km from San Jose, has conditions closer to the dry tropical forest.

The Stealth Building in New York City by Work Architecture Company

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2018

Article source: Work Architecture Company

This residential development consists of a complete gut renovation and new construction behind one of New York’s most beautiful and oldest cast-iron facades. It required a careful approach to the blending of contemporary architecture with historic preservation. New York City’s Landmarks Commission required any rooftop addition to be invisible. The building, however, is located on a highly-visible corner with a low, two-story building across the street. This meant that the building’s roof was visible from almost three blocks away.

Livinn Santiago in Chile by RSAI, RS Arquitectura

Monday, May 21st, 2018

Article source: RSAI, RS Arquitectura 

The relation between a building and its immediate context is a constant and ever present factor in architectural design. Sometimes you go for mimicry, integrating into the building the geometry and materials as a respectful nod to the surroundings. Others, you may seek to stand out, highlighting your differences and to explore new ideas.
