SOPP Lillehammer – 2016 Youth Olympic Games Student Housing in Norway by Kebony

Friday, September 18th, 2015

Article source: Kebony

Lillehammer, the site of the upcoming 2016 Youth Olympic Games, is soon to open the doors for a new development of student accommodation, which – in line with ‘passive house’ standards – has put environmental credentials at the forefront of the design and selection of construction materials. The development, designed by Henning Larsen Architects and SGB, is named SOPP (short for Studentsamskipnaden i Oppland), as it will house students in its 360 apartments across four blocks. The whole development is clad in Kebony’s sustainable, durable wood that will offer resistance to the chilly, windswept climate of the mountainous, lakeside Gudbrandsdal region.

ROOF EXTENSION in Vienna, Austria by TRIENDL UND FESSLER ARCHITEKTEN ZT OG

Thursday, September 10th, 2015

Article source: TRIENDL UND FESSLER ARCHITEKTEN ZT OG

Increasing urban density:
In addition to numerous technical specifications, the specific structure of the historic building, a very tight budget and local building regulations constitute a strict corset for this roof extension. The basic idea for the design was to reinterpret the spatial qualities of a classical attic. Due to the limited corridor space the apartments have been designed as a zoned “ Loftspace” on two levels. Deep cut in terraces, stairways and spatial requirements of the existing structure (chimneys, fire walls, etc.) give every apartment its own individual quality. From the public entrance floor up to the private gallery level, the functions organize self-explanatory within each unit. All apartments are accessed from the inventory level and spatially structured as duplex apartments. This allows all units north/south or east/west orientation.

867 De Bougainville in Québec, Canada by Bourgeois / Lechasseur architects

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015

Article source: v2com

The project is a complete remodelling of a ground floor apartment in a building dating back to 1924, located in Quebec City’s Montcalm neighbourhood. The clients, a young family, decided to convert the ground floor into their main residence. The space was remodeled to make it airy, bright and more functional. The living areas are spread out through a large linear area crossing the building from east to west. Now the light flows in more freely. During the demolition work, a brick common wall was seen as an element of interest to be kept and enhanced. At the other extremity, a wall of original wooden boards was also kept to provide a touch of warmth to the bedrooms. This wood was also reused for the washroom counter.

Tyche Apartment in Barcelona, Spain by CaSA + Margherita Serboli

Tuesday, September 1st, 2015

Article source: CaSA + Margherita Serboli

The property occupies an art nouveau building of the Eixample district of Barcelona and was fully renovated by CaSA and Margherita Serboli to become the holiday apartment for an Italian family. The original layout wasted considerable space and was poorly orientated. Its longitudinal distribution, forced by the transversal bearing walls, resulted in many densely separated small spaces, spared along a long corridor that isolated the two ends of the apartment.
