Article source: v2com

Article source: archi5

archi5 was founded in 2003, the fruit of its founders’ common agency experience and the approach they share to architecture.

A context-based approach to projects is key: the site, the programme, the social and cultural challenges are all examined, nalyzed and compared. These data are then transformed into questions.

ALPINE BARN APARTMENT in Bohinj, Slovenia by OFIS ARCHITECTS

Friday, October 23rd, 2015

Article source: OFIS ARCHITECTS 

Traditional landmarks creating a Slovenian countryside also include different types of farmhouses, hayracks and barns. Unfortunately many of these no longer serve its purpose, therefore are mostly in poor condition, non-maintained and often simply destroyed and replaced with generic housing. Only by embracing the traditions that have been passed on to by their ancestors ensure that the Slovene vernacular architecture* survives not just as national symbol, but also an integral part of the Slovenian rural lifestyle.

*a category of architecture based on local needs, construction materials and reflecting local traditions

30 SOCIAL HOUSING UNITS in VILLEFRANCHE-SUR-SAÔNE, FRANCE by PETITDIDIERPRIOUX ARCHITECTES

Friday, October 23rd, 2015

Article source: PETITDIDIERPRIOUX ARCHITECTES

Intermediate dwellings

The project takes the form of an urban micro-operation aiming to link a park, that had been isolated until now, and a boulevard running through to the town centre. This has resulted in a pathway being created in the middle of the plot to better make use of its heart and to define an unusual landscape. To either side of this axis, two quite different housing typologies have been built: to the north, a two storey building crossing through the site and, to the south, a series of interleaved houses. Each housing unit is extended by a vast outdoor space positioned either next to the entrance or to the rear of the unit. The most symbolic, being that of the main building, is constructed from a double latticework envelope and, extending the living room, creates an additional space of around 20 m².
