Forestry Installation Building in Biel, Switzerland by bauzeit architekten

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

Article source:  bauzeit architekten

The site of the forestry center extends on both sides of the ‘Reuchenette’ road. To facilitate it’s function, the program’s content focused on only one side. Following the topography of the land, two buildings form an elongated space ending with a court for the maneuvers. The single level building dominates the main street façade and differs, both in form and aspect, from the urban architecture. Its envelope is made of rough and untreated strips of wood. It generates a oriented vertically texture, that dialogues with the forest structure and filters the light and the external views.

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014

Article source: [tp3] architekten

The new residential house has been built on the basement of the old one and is now accessible through a generous staircase.

MOURNING HOUSE in Bosques de las Lomas, Mexico City by Pascal Arquitectos

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

Article source: Pascal Arquitectos

This is a project with very strong emotional implications. We had to understand the mood of the user, who at such this moment would not care very much for an aesthetical analysis of any place, but at the same time we wanted to create a space that can create a spritual mood, for this we referred to ancient buildings that were designed for this purpose, as the Egiptian “Mastabas” or some Mayan buildings in Palenque.

Saturday, August 30th, 2014

Article source: Atelier Kempe Thill architects

The municipality of Borsele in the Dutch province of Zeeland was founded in 1970 by the merging of 13 villages. Heinkenszand was assigned centre of this newly formed administrative unit and a new town hall was built for the 25.000 inhabitants. More then 30 years after the opening, the building was in need of rehabilitation. On the one hand, the façade as well as the roof weren’t fully waterproof anymore. Furthermore, the building had to undergo an asbestos abatement to adapt to modern building standards. On the other hand the interior of the building had to be renovated in order to create a flexible and modern office environment. The building climate had to be improved in order to reduce energy loss.
