Sales and Management Office for Sol de Rojales Housing Development in Alicante, Spain by Esculpir el Aire / José Ángel Ruiz Cáceres

Saturday, July 26th, 2014

Article source: Esculpir el Aire / José Ángel Ruiz Cáceres 

White or visible light can be split into monochromatic beams of light by passing it through an obstacle that forces the different waves which make up white light to travel at different speeds. This is the concept from which this small building developed.

Logistica La Lunera in Soriano, Uruguay by Nicolas Pinto da Mota

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014

Article source: Nicolas Pinto da Mota

Building a utilitarian building marked the direction of this project.

That is why the whole strategy turned around the prefiguration of a traditional typology. The different elements of the composition, galleries, sloping roofs, metal enclosures, are the typical components that qualify this type of buildings in this place.

Parlement Francophone Bruxellois in Brussels, Belgium by SKOPE

Friday, July 18th, 2014

Article source: SKOPE

The new program includes: the seat of Brussels Parliament (PFB : French speaking part) and the restoration of the former Postal Relay (Renaissance 1694) as a polyvalent space. It would have been risky to chose the easy way by the creation of a mimetic building right wing of The Parliament or propose a dissonant solution with a draft bill only contemporary. Skope’s approach was different; inspired by the history of the place while assuming contemporary issues.

The Factory in Terrassa, Spain by Pepe Gascon Arquitectura

Friday, July 18th, 2014

Article source: Pepe Gascon Arquitectura

An industrial building in the premises of an old early twentieth-century textile factory in Terrassa, a leading city  in Catalonia’s textile industry, has been refurbished and equipped as an office.

Prior to the intervention, the whole building had false ceilings, plaster-covered walls, et cetera, and we  suspected that they concealed the magnificent architecture that characterised the majority of the great textile  mills of the beginning of the twentieth century.

New residential and mix-use tower in Antwerp, Belgium by C.F. Møller Architects

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

Article source:  C.F. Møller Architects

The architectural idea of the building is derived from an inside-out perspective, where the social qualities of the building are a dominant driver for the design: Often in tall buildings, the sense of community amongst the occupants is challenged by the fact that you hardly ever meet your neighbours, except coming and going via the lobby and at the lifts.

Nievre’s Deparmental Archives in France by architecture patrickmauger

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

Article source: architecture patrickmauger 

The rundown building housing Nièvre’s departmental archives has undergone rehabilitation and been provided with an extension. Two new buildings are positioned in parallel with the existing rehabilitated building.

The first, giving onto the street, is slightly stepped back to create an esplanade marking the public nature of this institution. The façades are formed from screen-printed glass panels with different gradations and levels of transparency that create reflections and random vibrations.

KCEV Krkonose Mountains Centre for Environmental Education in Vrchlabí, Czech Republic by Petr Hájek Architekti

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

Article source: Petr Hájek Architekti

The building is situated into a city park in front of the administration building of KRNAP (Krkonoše Mts. National Park). The building geometry is derived from the geometry of Krkonoše Mountains. Every edge or slope on the building could be found in its real, natural topography. In between of the metal vectors, which represent the mountain ridges, there is growing sedum. The new building is set apart from the existing one to create an entrance platform.
