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.

Wooden structures for refugees in Koblenz, Germany by herrmannsArchitekten

Tuesday, October 20th, 2015

Article source: herrmannsArchitekten

Refugees welcome

Not only now the situation in the housing market is exacerbated. Even in recent years, far too few apartments have been built in the inexpensive segment. So affordable housing must be re-implemented as soon as possible.

25 APARTMENTS in Paris, France by PETITDIDIERPRIOUX

Friday, October 16th, 2015

Article source: PETITDIDIERPRIOUX

The project falls within the general framework of restructuring Porte Pouchet (Paris, 17th arrondissement) and, more particularly, the site represented by Rue Rebière which, until now, had been largely ignored. The 25 housing units are distributed over two buildings, each making reference to its specific context: a small tower develops the form generated by a small square on the west side. It is linked by walkways to a more compact building positioned on the street’s alignment and provides continuity with adjacent projects. These two systems generate diversified housing units (17 different types out of a total of 25) with views over the city and considerable thought given to positioning with regards neighbours. The result is an architecture that takes full advantage of this limited site (18 x 50 m).

Formerly a parking lot on the southeast corner of Fulton and Gough streets, the Drs. Julian + Raye Richardson Affordable Apartments has risen on one of the sites freed for development by the demolition of the collapsed Central Freeway. This five-story building will provide permanent supportive housing for a very-low-income, formerly homeless population.

55 HOUSING UNITS in LYON, FRANCE by PETITDIDIERPRIOUX

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

Article source: PETITDIDIERPRIOUX

“Single-level homes”, la Duchère

The operation resulted from a competition (“Archi’nova, comment habiterez-vous demain?” – Archi’nova, living in tomorrow’s world) launched by the Alliade group. The programs are built independently on the plot and share a central garden. The adopted morphology is diversified, urban in nature and the apartments of considerable quality: wet rooms are naturally lit and conservatories allow outdoor spaces to be incorporated during the summer months. A new typology is proposed: that of “single-level homes” in which a floor level corresponds to a single apartment. Taking up little floor area, they provide the vertical qualities of a detached house: four open faces, an outdoor space and considerable partitioning freedom as well as condominium-owned shared services.
