Minimalist design meets everlasting intellectual values. Temple of books shaped into a long brick house in the side of the Big-Proud Peak, Hungary, from Foldes Architects
The project initiated by an intellectual couple, had a clear starting point, as highlighted to architects Laszlo Foldes and Peter Sonicz: “We own a length of books something like 100 meters”. The owners of the site had found the best location to retire from work and the noise of Budapest in a rich natural environment, at the side of the Big-Proud Peak.

Budapest is often called the Queen of the Danube: the most characteristic feature of its bank-side scenery is the Buda Castle, which has been subject to major reconstruction works in recent times. An important stepping-stone in this process is the revival of the Castle Garden Bazaar (Várkert Bazár), wedged between the castle and the river: the stunning complex originally consisted of a Neo-Renaissance garden, the castle walls and 19th century buildings.

noa* (network of architecture) add a cosy yet functional atmosphere to the new ski-rental and shop K&K located on the Seiser Alm / Alpe di Siusi, and outlines a comforting backdrop in the middle of the surrounding Alpine landscape.
The design of the interiors evolves along three contrasting materials: The warmth of the matured local spruce, the soft surfaces of the felt-fabric and the edgy metal furniture elements together aim to create a cosy and comfortable living room atmosphere.

The main architectural idea was provided by its siting in the Pavilniai Regional Park : the house has to dissolve in the landscape. Curved roofs all the way to the ground, and fluid forms extended by timber pergolas, are the most important architectural means achieving this effect. The building is designed on one level. Two boomerang shapes with pitched roofs combined with a shared common zone covered with a flat roof create its spatial expression. The utility zone is located in the northern part (a shed and garage, kitchen, storage room, boiler room, laundry). Four bedrooms and a bathroom face east. The common zone is located in the southwest. The dining-room, recreational and active zones are planned here. There is a terrace behind glass cases under the extended roof.

Ringve – Norway`s National Music Museum is located on a hill on the Lade peninsula near Trondheim with great views of the cultural landscape and Trondheimsfjorden surrounding the site. The buildings, situated in a typical homestead arrangement, were erected from 1740 to 1952. All of the buildings are worthy of protection. The Ringve National Music Museum has a national mandate to conserve and convey both music and musical instruments. The museum is fitted with a new extension as well as rehabilitation and refurbishing of the existing buildings. The extension is located outside of the stead enclosure as a “black box” for temporary exhibitions. The design of the building is in part inspired by the resonance boxes usually featured in many musical instruments. From the media library, you will find beautiful views of the botanic garden surrounding the estate. A new common entry area with a reception, museum store and café connects both the permanent and temporary exhibitions. In addition, the old banquet hall has also been upgraded and refurbished. One of the main goals of the project was to secure an environmentally friendly design throughout, and the new extension is Norway’s first museum building built in compliance with the passive house standard. A new elevator was installed to secure accessibility for all visitors in the new museum complex.

This project is an extension of the existing factory, reclaiming ground adjacent to the jungle in Johor, Malaysia. The factories in the 19th century gave priority to rationality and productivity, so we wanted to transcend the factory typology by incorporating elements that would make the Islamic workers proud of the new working environment they would be facing.

Mill Kopácsy is located at the most beautiful area of Veszprém, in the valley of stream Séd.
1.The history of the building’s architecture
Where the current mill takes its place there probably had been one already in the middle ages.
The first report that proves the earliest existence of the mill is from 1765, which we found in the protocol of the city, Veszprém. There is also a note about the building in a fifteen years younger map. We also know that its name was already Kopácsy in the 1830’s, and that it had three water-wheels. There is also a map from 1857 which contains the mill, but the L figured building does not have yet some parts we know nowadays, because they were built later on. In the 1950s the building was socialized and private homes were settled in the main building and the outhouses as well. Then, in the 1980’s, the building was used as a tailoring and as a locker. Because the appliances were heavy, the wooden frame was enforced with steel, so that it became strong enough. After the tailoring had been given up the building was standing being empty and rusty for a pretty long term.
The building’s frontage which faces the street is classicist. The other fronts of it are simple plastered walls, with some scattered windows on them, and the building has the signs that it was rebuilt more times.
