Residential building Ville Verdi in Vienna, Austria by Albert Wimmer ZT GmbH

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

Article source: Albert Wimmer ZT GmbH

The ecological housing estate in low-energy construction is located in Vienna’s 11th district in a former industrial zone in close proximity to the revitalized, distinctive Gasometers — the industrial monuments of historic-ism. The town villas seek optimal positions in a dancing manner — with regard to exposure to sunlight and quality of view as well as the creation of tension, appeal and attractive force. The slightly “sloping” position, in which the villas ambivalently float between “seeing and being seen”, corresponds to the stepped house type, enhances the villas’ presence and facilitates the occupants’ identification process.

Irène PAR in Montreal, Canada by Kanva Architecture

Saturday, February 9th, 2013

Article source: Kanva Architecture

The urban housing project, Irène, located in Montreal’s borough, St-Henri, exemplifies innovation as a valuable design tool to individualize a building within the City. Perforated aluminium panels were customized into a novel exterior building envelope that screens the upper three storeys of an addition above an existing industrial building. Drawing an analogy with a theatrical curtain, the metallic skin acts equally to veil and to reveal the activity within, serving a per-formative function that adds a touch of spectacle to the neighbourhood.

Essence Financial Building in Shenzhen, China by OMA

Saturday, February 9th, 2013

Article source: OMA

Shenzhen’s Futian CBD is developing at a frenetic speed. The last 100 years of development in building styles are condensed into a mere decade. Populated by a range of office towers of different generations, the city is ready for the next leap forward from a manufacturing city into a services hub. A brand new generation of office towers concomitant with another rapid transformation calls for a moment of unruffled consideration about the way forward: how the emergent forces in business and society could shape a contemporary office tower typology…

School House and kindergarten in Grono, Switzerland by Raphael Zuber Architekt

Friday, February 8th, 2013

Article source: Raphael Zuber Architekt

The building stands in the middle of a garden on a public square. The square is a uniformly sloping paved surface, planted with walnut trees and is the playground for the school. The garden is a circular crater, overgrown with a field of flowers, and is the outside play area for the kindergarten. The geometry of the garden and the level of the building are determined by a quadrate horizontal surface on which the building stands and by the two approaches.

Dolomitenblick in Sesto, Italy by Plasma studio

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

Article source: Plasma studio

The building is located on a hillside in the Dolomites, at the end of a residential area.

The volume has been developed mainly from its pragmatic functional request to host 6 independent apartments with one common circulation: through a cut that marks the main access and the division of the units the volume is splitted into 2 halves. Besides its functional meaning this incision becomes the main defining element of the building: from the cut at either side a strip unfolds that forms the balustrade of a generous covered balcony and ends into the surrounding topography. Following the steep natural hillside with each floor the strips and the façade jump back.
