Historic Aberdeenshire House in Aberdeen, Scotland by Kebony

Tuesday, October 20th, 2015

Article source: Kebony

A distinctive Edwardian home in north Aberdeenshire was recently given a new lease of life with the addition of an extension inspired by contemporary minimal design. Juxtaposed against the traditional hard wearing granite of the original building, the extension features Kebony cladding which introduces an element of Scandinavian design aesthetic as well as bringing with it all the benefits of resilience and durability that its technology allows. Appearing to ‘float’ in front of a stainless steel mesh, the timberwork gives the building a sense of lightness, contrasting with the solid granite of the main part of the house.

Tuesday, October 20th, 2015

Article source: Benthem Crouwel Architects

The striking white bus drivers building on the bus station at Amsterdam Central houses a workspace, pantry and a canteen for bus drivers on the first floor. Because the canteen is located on this higher level the drivers have a lot of privacy, with 180 degree views of the bus platform, the river IJ and Amsterdam North. On the ground floor there is space for storage, a technical area and toilets. The bus drivers building has been built three months.

Notariaat 2.0 – Continuous Landscape in Horebeke, Belgium by Atelier Vens Vanbelle

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

Article source: Atelier Vens Vanbelle

The original notary, which interacts with its surroundings in a very specific way, was put into use only five years ago. Thus it was a mental struggle to respond to the request for an extension. Well conceived design does not tolerate continuation or copy, so a radically different approach was needed. On a six-month period an abstract mirror box on a black base rose along the street. A transparent passageway between these two volumes replaces the former entrance of the building.

55 HOUSING UNITS in LYON, FRANCE by PETITDIDIERPRIOUX

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

Article source: PETITDIDIERPRIOUX

“Single-level homes”, la Duchère

The operation resulted from a competition (“Archi’nova, comment habiterez-vous demain?” – Archi’nova, living in tomorrow’s world) launched by the Alliade group. The programs are built independently on the plot and share a central garden. The adopted morphology is diversified, urban in nature and the apartments of considerable quality: wet rooms are naturally lit and conservatories allow outdoor spaces to be incorporated during the summer months. A new typology is proposed: that of “single-level homes” in which a floor level corresponds to a single apartment. Taking up little floor area, they provide the vertical qualities of a detached house: four open faces, an outdoor space and considerable partitioning freedom as well as condominium-owned shared services.

Tanatorium in Zaragoza, Spain by SALAS Architecture + Design

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

Article source: SALAS Architecture + Design

The Tanatorium frames very important feelings of its users through the evocation of God and the cavern. An steriotomic architecture formed by a perforated enveloping is born from earth to protect humans when they say goodbye to their deceased people. Though a formal gesture, this concrete cavern opens in diagonal direction to the sun, worshipping this primitive god.
