Polimen House in Biscay, Spain by COLL-BARREU ARQUITECTOS

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

Article source: COLL-BARREU ARQUITECTOS

The building accommodates the central Public Safety services for a one million people urban area.

The ground on which the building sits was unstable. It was uncertain. It is the result of having quickly filled an open mine, with pits up to 50 m deep, which formed a cavernous place in its physical reality and its memory.

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.
