Rue Pierre Rebiere in France by Nicolas Laisné & Christophe Rousselle

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Article source: Nicolas Laisné & Christophe Rousselle

The two buildings stand within a narrow stretch of land with a width of twelve meters, in spite of this constrained configuration the design is freeing itself from it through the expression of the volumes offering “an true attic at every level”

Different and complementary, the two buildings have a visual contrapuntal communication, in rhythm with the Rue Rebière

Whilst the first one expresses major horizontal lines towards the public space, the second is inspired by the trunk’s lines and tree’s canopy, embodied by the use of a vertical wooden cladding.

Oleanderweg in Halle-Neustadt, Germany by Stefan Forster Achitekten (designed using ArchiCAD)

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

Article source: Stefan Forster Achitekten

This conversion of existing prefabricated building in Halle-Neustadt resulted from the city reconstruction for the International Architectural Exhibition (IBA) in 2010. Originally, 2 or 3 apartments per floor were arranged around 11 staircases.  By reducing the staircases to 6 and removing the associated corridors.  It has allowed for the extension and rearrangment of the apartments. Outdoor spaces have been formed by removing alternating sections of the 3rd and 4th floorplates, creating large outdoor terrace spaces.  On the floors below, wide, continious balconies provide quality outside spaces for the flats.

Shoreham Street in Sheffield, UK by Project Orange

Saturday, March 17th, 2012

Article source: Project Orange

192 Shoreham Street is a Victorian industrial brick building sited at the edge of the Cultural Industries Quarter Conservation Area of Sheffield. It is not listed but considered locally significant. The completed development seeks to rehabilitate the once redundant building, celebrate its industrial heritage and make it relevant to its newly vibrant context. The brief was to provide mixed use combining a desirable double height restaurant/bar within the original shell (capitalising on the raw industrial character of the existing building) with duplex studio office units above. These are accommodated in an upward extension of the existing building in a contrasting but complementary volume, a replacement for the original pitched roof.

Galilée in Toulouse, France by Studio Bellecour Architects

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Article source: Studio Bellecour Architects

Galilée is one of the debut projects realized in the UDZ (Urban Development Zone) Andromède, in Blagnac, near Toulouse in France. The particular urban details of this UDZ in Blagnac provided a unique climate for the development of a quality architectural project. The aesthetic of Galilée results from a combination of an interpretation of these urban rules, the immediate aeronautical context, and from the environmental requirements given in the specifications of the UDZ.

Refurbishment of an old Marketplace in Alcaniz, Spain by Miquel mariné+césar rueda boné

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

Article source: Miquel mariné+césar rueda boné

The old marketplace of Alcañiz has not been home to a market for some years, but now it has once again become a part of the town square, an area for socializing, passing time, and education. The enormous space inside the building has been reconnected to its environment via the introduction of a newly built element. Independent of the existing structure, it is an exercise of occupation strategic, respectful and reversible. Its two levels are enclosed within a homogenous and continuous skin.

Habitat 15 in Hollywood, California by Predock Frane Architects (designed using AutoCAD and Rhino)

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

Article source: Predock Frane Architects

DESIGN INTENT: Working within the context of a for-profit MUR creates a particular set of parameters; programmatic, physical, and client/cost informed. Our solution is two 4-story buildings placed parallel to the street. Between them is a courtyard, reached via a tunnel through the first building, accommodating shared public space and circulation. The simple cubic shape of the buildings allowed for greater project resources to be deployed to the sectional relations within the units. The separation into two buildings allows half of the unit’s access to light on three sides.
