Iron Lace Project in Quebec, Canada by Gestion René Desjardins

Saturday, February 23rd, 2013

Article source: Gestion René Desjardins

“It’s a beautiful, calm street, lined with trees and 1960s bungalows. On the other hand, the house that these clients had bought was in such disrepair that it was beyond saving. The municipality had therefore granted us a demolition permit, on the strict condition that the new building follow the original plan. That was a real problem, since we needed to triple the livable space to meet the family’s needs. The husband, a tall, strapping extrovert, wanted a space that would reflect his size and personality. His wife, ever so pragmatic, insisted on easy upkeep and ample storage space.”

Pago de Carraovejas Winery in Peñafiel, Spain by Estudio Amas4arquitectura

Saturday, February 23rd, 2013

Article source: Estudio Amas4arquitectura

This project is part of a series of works where we tried to look into a massiveness which liberated space and turned what isn’t done into the main focus. The whole building is articulated by this blank space in the shape of patios, subtractions or voids. Daylight is distributed through indirect and singular openings. Structure is resolved through big superficial components in the form of enclosure.

City Green Court in Prague, Czech Republic by Richard Meier & Partners

Friday, February 22nd, 2013

Article source: Richard Meier & Partners

City Green Court is the third of a cluster of buildings designed by Richard Meier & Partners and it completes the corner of the Radio Plaza superblock located in the Pankrac area of Prague. The building is conceived of as a geometric volume in dialogue with the near context while offering respected contrast to the surrounding buildings. Smaller in scale than its predecessor and sibling, City Tower, it is equally inspired by the language of Czech Cubism, with a façade that while addressing issues of conservation and sustainability incorporates forms reminiscent of this avant-garde movement. The quote below, in essence, sums up the philosophy and concepts behind City Green Court.

Hartenaugasse Office Building in Styria, Austria by Ernst Giselbrecht + Partner ZT GmbH

Friday, February 22nd, 2013

Article source: Ernst Giselbrecht + Partner ZT GmbH

For an architect, the task of giving a manor house a new purpose and function is of course a fascinating, yet also complex, challenge. Villas such as Hartenaugasse 6 rank at the very top of the range of desirable residences. Yet the shape of living space today has changed altogether fundamentally in comparison with the ideas prevailing at the time the villas were designed. This accounts for the fact that many of these buildings are put to other uses today.

LED 847 in Shanghai, China by Benjamin Loiseau Architecture

Thursday, February 14th, 2013

Article source: Benjamin Loiseau Architecture

This command takes place on the north of the Zhangjiang district in Pudong. It’s along the future trade route site. It includes 36,000 m2 of shops and facilitys. The context here is nonexistent, except for the presence of a river bordering the project, which leads to a “technology park”.
The fluid form of the buildings come from the river and from the futur energy of the site. A long ribbon of LED visually unifies all the programs along the road. This is a screen of 800 m length perfect for reading in the car which provide a technological showcase.

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.
