Avenue de France Administrative Building in Genève, Switzerland by Group8 Architecture

Saturday, July 14th, 2012

Article source: Group8

A complex site

The “Avenue de France” administrative building is sat on a site which imposes several constraints. It was built on a site bordering the CFF (national) railway lines, limited on its northern end by the Avenue de France and adjacent to a pre-existing building. The site’s topography also imposes varying conditions namely: the railway tracks to be found at the lowest point, the level of the access to the underground parking, the level of the Avenue de France over-passing the railway and the general level of the existing adjacent buildings. It is worth noting that before construction of the building the site had long been considered as ‘unsuitable’ for development.

Kameleon in Bijlmer, The Netherlands by NL Architects

Thursday, July 12th, 2012

Article source: NL Architects

De Kameleon is a supersized housing block including a new shopping center and plenty of parking in the area formerly known as Bijlmermeer.

The Bijlmer is the one area in the Netherlands that sometimes is considered a ghetto. At the moment the area is going through a radical renovation process: an attempt is being made to turn it into a regular Dutch suburb. Standard low-rise housing is introduced that replaces the 10 storey apartment buildings but also the green spaces in-between them. In spite of the new format, the Bijlmer remains exotic: it is the place to be for a sensational Roti or sundried Bats.

H27D in Constance, Germany by Kraus & Schönberg Architects

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

Article source: Kraus & Schönberg Architects

The historic city centre of Constance is characterized by its compactness and homogeneity. The project incorporates the historical formation of the surrounding buildings with its 30m long plots and projects this format into the 10m wide front.

The mixed use building completes the city block towards the high street; the courtyard provides daylight from the south where an arcade offers flexible external areas within the otherwise dense historic city centre.

SILEX – EMVS Foro Habitat Sostenible Competition in Madrid, Spain by Gallardo Llopis Arquitectos

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

Article source: Gallardo Llopis Arquitectos

Due to the situation and the characteristics of the plot, and taking advantage of the free ground floor to generate the access for the center instead of for an end, the project appears as a threshold of access to the Colonies of “Nuestra Señora de los Angeles”, a step between the urban environment and the green space that proposes the plan.

Apartment Building in Cessange, Luxembourg by Metaform atelier d’architecture

Sunday, July 8th, 2012

Article source: Metaform atelier d’architecture

There are numerous problems involved in integrating art into architecture in the developmental stages when the architecture is limited by several constraints, including profitability and investments. The juxtaposition of the spaces and the articulation of different surface areas must meet the very precise requirements of both the building authorities and of the client, and the situation is rendered even more challenging when the building site is narrow.

Office Solvas is a newly constructed office building in the center of Zomergem, Belgium, in the immediate vicinity of the church and adjacent square. Within this specific context the design challenge was to integrate a three-story building (with two office-floors and one level for apartments) on a lot between two buildings with a completely different typology. The left building is one story high with a flat roof, the right one has two floors and a pitched roof.
