Residence in Paderborn, Germany by Architekten Wannenmacher +Möller GmbH

Friday, September 25th, 2015

Article source: Architekten Wannenmacher +Möller GmbH

The House for a family with a child was completed in 2010 and is located on a busy street in a residential area of the Central German city of Paderborn. In accordance with the predominant development in this area (existing development of the environment), the one-and-a-half storey building has a gabled roof, thereby deliberately integrating typologically into the existing neighbourhood. The House is accessed over a gravel-covered introverted courtyard, which is closed off from the adjacent road by a concrete wall. Also the garage is accessed through the courtyard. It was designed in a way that it merges with the house and is barely noticeable.

Article source: PSA Arquitetura

This residential project inserted in the neighbourhood of Itaim Bibi, south of São Paulo, explored its best qualities to provide a respectful relationship with the surroundings.

SRK in Meguro, Tokyo by ARTechnic architects

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015

Article source: ARTechnic architects

By expanding and adjusting the existing land condition and nature within, I have attempted to create a space which provides dwelling as like a part of the nature.

The shape has been finalized rationally and organically in the forming process of dealing with the site condition and requested function. Not only the result of the form being organic, by paying attention to the organic matter of the planning process, the process itself perhaps produced the organic space.

Restoration – Mythenschloss in Zurich, Switzerland by Fischer Architekten AG

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015

Article source: Fischer Architekten AG

Competition, Zurich 2014; 3rd place: The almost-lakeside Mythenschloss is located as an urban component within a mixture of stone, neoclassical buildings and modern glass cubes. Although its location marks an interface between the city square and the water, the structure is identical on both sides – the Mythenquais and Alfred-Escher-Strasse. The concept aims to correct this lack of differentiation and have differentiated sides.
