Sport Complex and Swimming Center in La Florida, Spain by NAOS Architecture

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

Article source: NAOS Architecture

The location of the Sport Complex and Swimming Center in La Florida, Vigo, was a challenge because it was in a empty space of a built block, with a very high slope. So, the superior level stayed and the building was constructed below this level and it develops the functional program semi-buried. Therefore, on top of the building, was projected a public square and the slope of the terrain.

New Church of Våler in Hovedveien, Norway by CEBRA architecture

Sunday, April 1st, 2012

Article source: CEBRA architecture

Danish architects CEBRA’s proposal for a new church in Våler, Norway creates a symbolic landmark in the shape of a tilting cross using light and wood as key design elements for the interior.

The village of Våler, in the south eastern part of Norway, is in need of a new church in order to replace the village’s old wooden church, which burned down to the ground in 2009. The church is of great importance for the local community – both as a social gathering point and as characterizing landscape element. Therefore, the design of the new church has to combine a particular sensitivity and attention to the site’s culture-historical context with a modern architectural expression so as to succeed in creating flexible and contemporary church facilities.

Hotel Balneum in Tiszafüred, Hungary by Ferdinand and Ferdinand Architects (designed using ArchiCAD, Artlantis, and AutoCAD)

Saturday, March 31st, 2012

Article source: Ferdinand and Ferdinand Architects

The idea of the architect was to endow the building with a modern and esthetic  appearance using traditional local materials. That’s why light plaster was selected together with ceramic roof tiles and plenty of wood –  for terraces, for pergolas and for shields. Thanks to the  flood forests  – in this part of the country wood has always been available for building village houses. Willow tree is probably the most characteristic tree of the region,  twigs and branches of willow trees were wickered to create usefull household objects, such as baskets, armchairs, etc. This tradition was continued in the interior decoration of the spa – the reception desk was made of wickered willow tree, as well as the lampshades of suspension lamps and of consoles, and wicked willow branches were used to shape chests of drawers – all that was hand made by local ladies, in accordance with the local patriot attitude of the owner.

The perimeter is as important as the interior space formed by the rings, projecting physical areas that can express the function that will be developed.

Reabilitação da Igreja do Convento de São Francisco in Portalegre, Portugal by Cândido Chuva Gomes, arquitectos, Ldª

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

CHURCH OF THE SÃO FRANCISCO CONVENT – REHABILITATION

Only a few signs remain of the original Franciscan convent established in the 13th century, which reveal its original configuration, considered the oldest religious building in Portalegre. Throughout the centuries, several building works have reconfigured the space of the church, both in shape and size. After the dissolution of the religious orders in 1834, the original body of the Convent was subject to successive adaptations and additions, resulting from the repurposing of the building, particularly related to the industrial processing of cork. The church, after 1910, lost its ecclesiastical function and was used in several different ways from that period onwards, suffering some reconstruction and recuperation during the 70’s and 80’s, which were not carried out in a manner that added value to or repurposed the building.

Lake Houses in Zurich, Switzerland by E2A (designed using AutoCAD)

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

Article source: E2A Eckert Eckert Architekten

An existing late classical home (Villa Sonnenhof), marks the slight bend of the Seestrasse as it follows the shores of the lake. Along the villa, the former park stretched to the street above and opened dramatic vistas to the lake. Future densification on this site needed to offer views of the lake equally to all parties, but to avoid seeing their neighbors.
