10- 15 years ago the topic of mobility gained momentum in the Hungarian contemporary architecture. Many young architects realised that a major task of the next generation of architects/enginiers and urban designes will be the redefinition and reshaping of the existing urban infrastructure. Architecture and mobility will have implications not only on the traffic systems (means of traffic) of the 21st century, they will have impact on social spaces, public parks, as well.

This five-hundred-square-foot cabin serves as a private writer’s retreat and guest cottage. The owners asked for a space that felt connected to its island setting—the mild climate, scenic views, and proximity to wildlife. At the same time, they needed a structure that could be easily secured when not in use.

Countryside Villa is a project by Officina29 Architetti and includes the renovation of an existing house and the construction of a guest house with a swimming pool.
The renovation project stems from two specific intentions: to restore the right proportions between living and sleeping areas and open the building to the countryside, thereby generating a direct relationship between internal and external environment.

The project for the new headquarters of Atieva, a Silicon Valley based company involved in research and production of electric cars, has two main parts: the interior renovation of an existing office building and the new outdoor entrance.
The project for the new headquarters is about the new layout of the interior spaces, especially on the public areas such as the entrance, the lounge spaces, meeting and conference rooms and so on. These are the most representative space in the building, that will involve both employees, clients, suppliers and everyone who will be invited at the company.

Paul de Ruiter Architects designed Villa Schoorl, situated in the characteristic polders near the North Holland dunes. The fluent transition to the green polder landscape was the most essential starting point of the design. The subtly located villa is built with as many possible natural materials and sustainable techniques.

The brick house stands on the verge of village and landscape. In this house village characteristics and landscape qualities meet. The architecture of this house is founded on a traditional brick design with rural characteristics. All the surrounding houses are brickwork and have a sloping roof with ceramic roof tiles. There is a sight of chimneys, overhangings, wooden shutters, alcoves and other subtle accents. A bright and modern house has been created by using and reinterpreting these ingredients. The typical shape of the roof rises from the landscape and the inside living areas are focused on the surrounding landscape. The house is embedded in its environment by its shape, spatial construction and the used materials. It is constructed almost exclusively out of one type of material: bricks! The elongated shapes of brickwork possess a strong differentiation and thereby connects with the rural character of the surroundings.

When we visited the place where the Gallery would be located, we felt that the space provided a cozy distance from the pace of the city. We then drew a parallel with the older shelters in existence – the caves. It was based on this reflection that we developed the project. Designed in partnership with Edson Matsuo, Grendene’s design director, the Melissa Gallery was designed to harmonize with the concept of a shelter, of refuge in the middle of a megalopolis. Floor, wall and ceiling were built with the same finish to stress this impression, and the shoes are arranged in small increases in both wall and floor that evoke stalagmites – the cave formations that protrude from cave floors towards the ceiling.

Directly on the Elbe, commanding a prominent position in the HafenCity, stands the Marco Polo Tower right beside the new Unilever headquarters, also by Behnisch Architekten. The 55 m high tower punctuates the end of the route from the inner city out to the new attractions, the Cruise Ship Terminal and the Promenade on Strandkai. In its form and arrangement, it is a unique and remarkable sculptured building, adding to Hamburg’s silhouette on the Elbe. Its 17 above ground levels, each turned a few degrees on their axis, allow all 58 apartments spectacular views over the harbour and the city.
