Hill-Maheux Cottage in Val-des-Monts, Canada by Kariouk Associates

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

Article source: Kariouk Associates

Task:

To design a small, very private, four-season cottage

Design Challenge:

In this small, weekend and vacation retreat, the clients and their daughter seek to take refuge from the world. As such, the home is introverted; but the clients also desired that the house achieve a maximum connection to its beautiful, forested, lake-side site. Last, it is important to note that this home is built as a place the clients will keep for their entire lives and then pass on to their daughter; the clients, a couple each involved in art conservation, sought a home whose design would itself be conceived as a vessel for the conservation of the family memories that will unfold here.

Pedestrian footbridge in Evry, France by DVVD

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

Article source: DVVD

Due to the separation of pedestrian and vehicular traffic, bridges are particularly significant landscapes in public space in Evry. One key requirement quickly emerged: the need to prevent objects being thrown onto vehicles beneath the footbridge. At the same time as offering better user safety, we also wanted the bridge to be transparent and fun. We combined these architectural intentions and technical considerations to create a steel structure forming a volume which encompasses pedestrians.

Nature Centre in Hareskoven Forest, Copenhagen, Denmark by EFFEKT

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

Article source: EFFEKT

Nature Centre:

The visitors centre is situated in the pristine forest of Hareskoven in the vicinity of Copenhagen. It is a portal to the almost 1 million visitors that uses the forest annually. It hosts a 1000 square meter large visitor centre with café, exhibition space, rental, learning and research facilities and a caretaker’s residence.

The building is shaped like a star resembling the pathways in the forest that surrounds it. The pathways used to be a part of the old kings hunting grounds. They could provide a panoramic overview over the position of the prey in the forest. Now they serve as a historical memory and are a beautiful and unique feature of Hareskoven.

Competition Entry for Bispevika Development in Norway by PUSHAK

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

Article source: PUSHAK

Rich nature meets rich urbanity of Oslo’s new social hub.

When this new harbour area is fully developed the opening to the fjord will appear relatively narrow. PUSHAK proposes a new road north-south that turns and opens to the fjord. Three courts open towards – and frame – the view to the islands. The three water basins serve as a physical separation between the busy public spaces outside the courts, and the courtyard which only belongs to the residences. At the same time a tension is maintained between public and private: a glimpse into the lush dwelling yard, a look out on the city’s pulse. A number of pavilions add to the filtering between public and private, as well as creating a sunny wall to sit against for enjoying a cold drink on summer days.

House S in Wiesbaden, Germany by Christ Christ architekten gmbh

Saturday, November 26th, 2011

Article source: Christ Christ architekten gmbh

This specific construction assignment is a central topic of today’s urban development: the roof area as building site which can be covered with independent buildings – urban compression by utilization of roof areas as valuable building land.  Thereby the architect is always confronted with the question of how to handle with the existing building in a contemporary sense. In the case of House S a 60´s bungalow, built by interior architect Wilfried Hilger for himself and his family.

Water Museum in Granada, Spain by Juan Domingo Santos

Saturday, November 26th, 2011

Article source: Juan Domingo Santos

Renovations in an old watermill, Lanjarón, Granada

The Lanjarón municipality is on the southern flank of Sierra Nevada. It is famous for its crafts, its honey and the quality of its medicinal water, including one of Spain’s most famous spas. The museum project began with a search for a site favoured by the presence of the water in natural conditions. The chosen area is at the entrance to the Sierra Nevada Regional Park, alongside the Lanjarón River and an irrigation ditch that runs around several old buildings that were formerly the municipal abattoir. The museum is installed in on this site to safeguard the natural environment from property speculation with the design of a pedestrian itinerary that connects the new activity with the water infrastructure and several examples of traditional architecture, including watermills and an old public laundry.
