The extension of Farelcollege in Ridderkerk designed by KCAP Architects&Planners has been officially opened last week. The new building for general secondary education has already been in use since last September. Providing 1,700 m2 over three floors, the school accommodates 400 students within 12 classrooms with an additional flexible classroom on the ground floor. The dramatic entrance creates a new main entry for the college.

The rundown building housing Nièvre’s departmental archives has undergone rehabilitation and been provided with an extension. Two new buildings are positioned in parallel with the existing rehabilitated building.
The first, giving onto the street, is slightly stepped back to create an esplanade marking the public nature of this institution. The façades are formed from screen-printed glass panels with different gradations and levels of transparency that create reflections and random vibrations.

This extension to a single-family house in Stavanger was made to make room for a growing family in a city which has become increasingly dense over the last decades due to the economic boom related to the area’s oil industry. The building authorities accepted extension beyond original restrictions but wanted a modern expression, and found common ground with the architects in letting the existing building be preserved as a clear and city-typical shape. Stavanger has also recently been host to the Norwegian Wood project, part of Stavanger 2008 – European City of Culture, and there is reason to believe that the municipal authorities in Stavanger has achieved a more clear and mature architectural policy through the specific focus which that project gave.

Oliver Chapman Architects were commissioned to design an extension to an early 19th Century fishing cottage over looking the sea within the historic town of Anstruther, Fife. Typically dwellings in such settlements turned their back on the sea and grouped closely together to shelter the narrow streets behind from the elements.
