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.

For more than two decades, a high-crime light-rail station stopping at a toxic empty lot; now, a sustainable affordable family housing development and new gateway to downtown.

La Valentina Station brings 63-units of affordable rental housing for families to a previously desolate city site. The development bolsters the local sewer, electrical and storm-water infrastructure and brings compact, transit-oriented homes to the neglected area.

Keelung New Harbour Service Building – Phase 2 in Keelung, Taiwan by ACDF Architecture

Friday, January 11th, 2013

Article source: ACDF Architecture

Critics and practitioners of architecture often convey a contradictory message in a quest to comprehend the essence of iconic architecture. The notions of many recent international projects strive to be iconic, but few actually become truly successful from the point of view of the ultimate critics, the people who use them.

Friday, January 11th, 2013

Article source: AST 77 Architecten

Starting from the intent to upgrade the existing backside of an existing building and the desire to cluster all youth activities in the municipal community of Kortenberg, the choice was made to build a new youth center above the existing storage spaces of the cultural center Columba. This location was also much better situated than the current location of the youth center.

Affordable Housing For Young Families in Tuscany, Italy By Studiostudio Architettiurbanisti

Friday, January 11th, 2013

Article source: Studiostudio Architettiurbanisti

The design of the settlement layout is based on the recognition of landform. The project re-proposes latent settlement rules, yet consolidated, able to recover the structuring capacity of the layout and its landscape value.

Six buildings of 60 m long are arranged in the lot according to a north-south orientation with slightly changes in direction. A wall of dry stone delimits the project on the west side and marks the boundary between the industrial area and the new residential compound on the edge of the Tavola old village.

Housing building with 7 units in Rue Des Maraîchers, Luxembourg by METAFORM Architecture

Wednesday, January 9th, 2013

Article source: METAFORM Architecture

A discreet and reduced architecture with hidden openings based on a compact and pure volume. One of the main intentions of the project consists in the insertion of a residential building with 7 living units in its direct surroundings, marked by detached and solitary buildings in an suburban context. The use of a single light coloured material (fibre-cement panels) for the façade gives the building a monolithic aspect and preserves the quiet appearance. The composition of the different volumes merged to the continuous grid of the façade blurs the clear differentiation of the stacked floors, indeed often characteristic for an multi-storey housing project.
