WIESE in Stockerau, Lower Austria by synn architekten ZT-OG

Friday, July 17th, 2015

Article source: synn architekten ZT-OG

Balancing the efficient use of land with private parking needs requires creativeness and a new way of thinking. The ideal solution was found by providing capacity under the houses, claiming more space for outdoor activities and gardens while creating a pleasant living environment. The existing topography provided the ideal location for five refined spilt-level townhouses in a beautifully situated prominent area in Stockerau. An inclining interior wall acts as a divide between each dwelling; and the feature is mirrored once more in the street level view. The parking area leads comfortably down to the kitchen/dining area and smoothly flows up towards the bedroom area. Situated in the southern corner, two semi-detached properties are formed from a crystal-shaped exterior. Each property comes complete with private gardens.

Cockfight Coliseum Garden in Lima, Peru by 2.8x arquitectos

Thursday, May 28th, 2015

Article source: 2.8x arquitectos

The Project is born from the idea of recovering an old cockfight coliseum no longer in use, and changing  its purpose without transforming the original space and traces. The coliseum and the  cocks had a big sentimental value for the owners because of a family tradition. This is the reason why the project turned out into the creation of a memorial garden.

SEOUL SKYGARDEN in South Korea by MVRDV

Saturday, May 16th, 2015

Article source: MVRDV

About:

The Seoul Station Overpass was built in the 1970s to provide a vehicular connection from Namdaemun market, the largest traditional market in Seoul to the East, across the station area to the various parks in the West. Following intensive safety inspections in 2006, the City of Seoul deemed the 17-metre high structure of the overpass unsafe and intended to demolish and rebuild it, banning heavy vehicles’ access to the elevated roadway in 2009. Further consultation with residents and experts lead to the plan to regenerate the overpass, which totals 9.661 m2 in area, into a pedestrian walkway and public space, with the design competition launched in 2015.

Castle Garden Bazaar in Budapest, Hungary by Budapesti Muhely

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

Article source: Budapesti Muhely

Budapest is often called the Queen of the Danube: the most characteristic feature of its bank-side scenery is the Buda Castle, which has been subject to major reconstruction works in recent times. An important stepping-stone in this process is the revival of the Castle Garden Bazaar (Várkert Bazár), wedged between the castle and the river: the stunning complex originally consisted of a Neo-Renaissance garden, the castle walls and 19th century buildings.
