Urban 24 in Chicago, Illinois by Studio Dwell Architects

Thursday, January 28th, 2016

Article source: Studio Dwell Architects

Looking like a missing tooth, this project helped to complete a gap in the urban fabric of this intimate residential row house street in Chicago. The row-houses were built in the 1890’s, showing wear and demolition over the years. Infilling this small lot provided challenges for the new residence; to not disturb adjacent 100 year old structures, party wall encroachments and to respect the existing scale of the street. The shoring of the adjacent structures and the house’s new foundations required complex design and construction, including a cantilevered concrete foundation wall to avoid interfering with the adjacent party wall footing.

HERNANDEZ RESIDENCE in Madrid, Spain by Daniel Valle Architects

Sunday, January 24th, 2016

Article source: Daniel Valle Architects

The relationship between parents and children is in flux for the coming years: from total dependency to independency. Then, how do you organize a house and its different rooms if the relationships between family members are constantly shifting?According, the house organizes itself ambiguously between one family nucleus and two independent areas expressed to the exterior by a diagonal cut that divides the cubical mass into two sub-masses.

TIREPOIS in Bacalan, France by FABRE/deMARIEN

Sunday, January 24th, 2016

Article source: FABRE/deMARIEN

site

‘Rue Achard’ is the main artery in the Bacalan area created by the lengthening of the Bordeaux quayside. The project sits on two small Greenfield sites, each roughly 600m2, one at the junction of ‘rue Achard’ and ‘rue de la Delbos’ (building A), and the other behind running the length of the ‘cité Tirepois’, (building B). The whole articulate around this preserved field path. In the neighbourhood, it is the last of its kind – at the very least, the only one which kept this specific nature.

14 UNITS OF SOCIAL HOUSING AND MOTHER AND CHILD WELFARE CENTER (PMI)-SIEMP in Paris, France by inSpace architecture

Sunday, January 24th, 2016

Article source: inSpace architecture

The project at 73 boulevard de la Villette in the 10th arrondissement of Paris comprises 14 units of social housing for the SIEMP and a Mother and Child Welfare Center (Protection Maternelleet Infantile, or PMI) for the Department of Families and Infants (DFPE) of the city of Paris. The integration of the project into the lot demonstrates the intention to set up a building that assimilates the composition with the context, its morphologies and urban specificities, and thus designed as an element that reflects its environment. The building expresses two distinct aspects of reality: Life on the boulevard, and life in the heart of the city block. This duality is developed at various levels of the building’s conception.

The Segmented Building System by jantzen studio

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

Article source: jantzen studio

The Segmented Building System is an eco-friendly, energy efficient, prefabricated, modular building system. The building components consist of four-foot wide segments that vary in height, and can be delivered to the construction site in pieces, or as assembled profiles. Each of the segments are made of structural insulated foam panels that are connected together to form a floor, walls, and a roof. The configurations of these panels can make full floor, walls, and roof profiles, and/or half floor, wall, and roof profiles. They can be prefabricated with various kinds of exterior cladding such as metal or cement composite boards, and/or they can be clad at the construction site, after the structural panels have been assembled.

UNTITLED #7 in Singapore by Studio Wills + Architects

Friday, January 15th, 2016

Article source: Studio Wills + Architects

Untitled #7 is a renovation to an old 2-storey apartment at The Arris, located within Tanjong Pagar Area in Singapore.

The original pared-down interior stood in stark contrast with a context consisting of an eclectic mix of shop houses adorned with multiple colours, materials, textures and ornaments:  There was a strong division between the interior and the external environment.

Three Rivers Park District Eastman Center in Dayt on, Minnesota by MSR (Meyer, Scherer, & Rockcastle)

Friday, January 15th, 2016

Article source: MSR (Meyer, Scherer, & Rockcastle)

The design integrates site, building, and exhibit design in order to create a holistic visitor experience in the forest. A long south facing glass facade brings in light, passive solar energy, and extends the exterior paths through the building from the understory on one end to the tree canopy on the other. An active solar array and a geothermal-based heating and cooling system provide much of the energy needs. Operable windows provide ventilation and bring in the sounds and smells of the forest. Roof water feeds a pond to draw birds and animals for human observation.
