The Yardmaster’s Building in Melbourne, Australia by McBride Charles Ryan

Sunday, March 17th, 2013

Article source: McBride Charles Ryan

Within the gritty rail yard environment, squeezed between a space formed by the divergence of V-Line tracks at the end of platforms 5 and 6, the Yardmasters Building is a multi-use facility for the various workers and operations associated with the Southern Cross Rail Yard. A service building that in years passed may have been treated in a pragmatic and unremarkable way.

De Karel Doorman in Rotterdam, The Netherlands by Ibelings van Tilburg Architecten

Friday, March 15th, 2013

Article source: De Karel Doorman

De Karel Doorman consists of the renovation of a shopping building: Ter Meulen and an added residential building. Restoration and new-build The new residential building is up to 70 metres in height and includes 114 apartments. It is built on top of the Ter
Meulen building in Rotterdam. This is an unusual project as the new building literally rests on the columns and foundations of the existing structure. The only additions are a pair of concrete lift shafts which also provide stability. The construction technique is unconventional for a project in the Netherlands, as the main structure is in steel instead of heavy stone-like materials as concrete and limestone.

16 Social Housing for Granollers Town Hall in Barcelona, Spain by ONL Arquitectura

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

Article source:

The architectural strategy used has been to create a building whose exterior is defined by a language that seeks abstraction through colour, rhythm, and movement: a language that will contrast with the domestic private life of the residents inside. To combine these two concepts moveable panels have been mounted on the façades. By opening or closing them, residents can choose the level of light or privacy they want at any time throughout the year.

VALLECAS 47 in Madrid, Spain by Estudio UNTERCIO

Friday, March 1st, 2013

Article source: Estudio UNTERCIO

We tried to imagine, all of us together, a dwelling in which we would like to live. Bright and open to meet with friends some of us said, intimate and in semidarkness, the laziest ones replied. A dwelling with a multiple personality. One that would be able to react to the changing seasons. One that would open itself to two different environments; on one side, a street belonging to a new urban development, but close to the urban life of Vallecas Village, and on the other side, a bounded and safe courtyard.
