Superbude 2 in Hamburg, Germany by DREIMETA GmbH & Co. KG

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

Article source: DREIMETA GmbH & Co. KG 

With its dual concept between a hostel and a hotel the Superbude I in Hamburg attracts a broad-range target group. Its location in the centre of the hip district „Schanze“ enables a surprisingly unconventional design.

Our task:

Our task was to further develop and design the successful concept „Superbude“. This included designing the „Buden“, a colloquial word used for the rooms in this hotel, as well as the public areas such as the lobby, bar and shop etc. The hotel / hostel is in a listed building, once a Deutsche Post switching centre at the turn of the century. For this reason the staircases were restored true to the original.

MiNO – Migliarino hostel in Ferrara, Italy by Antonio Ravalli Architetti

Thursday, May 11th, 2017

Article source: Antonio Ravalli Architetti

As a part of a program for the conversion of an old hemp factory into a new city center for the town of Migliarino, the project gains a youth hostel out of a 510 m2 portion of the building. The site position is barycentric to the touristic circuits which take place during the summer, thanks to the proximity of the Po River Delta Natural Park, but the project has to count on a reduced regional funding, 270.000 € including the furniture, and a doubtful management profitability. Thus the management aspects, both with the energetic and economic saving, are the principal matters. The hostel is imagined as a ‘passive machine’, in which natural air fluxes are conveyed in order to obtain climatic benefits, while the systems distribution and the morphological disposition of the rooms, conceived as to minimize the utilized elements and technologies, allow an elastic hosting capacity: the highest during the spring and the summer, or in case of special events, reduced to the essential during the low seasons.

Hostal Ritoque in Región de Valparaíso, Chile by HSU·RUDOLPHY arquitectos

Thursday, May 4th, 2017

Article source: HSU·RUDOLPHY arquitectos

In our society we customarily perceive architecture as a luxury, understanding luxury as something valuable and at the same time scarce. We agree with the first component of the definition, but with respect to the second point, we as architects have probably not been persistent enough to build a better quality environment, nor inside or outside the Centres. Now if we define luxury as Bruno Munari does, we realize that, in general, high-level architectural production is associated with improper use of costly materials, which produce an equality gap to the extent that the benefits of good design can only be taken advantage of by those that can afford it.

Student Housing Campus Eindhoven University of Technology in Netherlands by Office Winhov + office haratori in collaboration with BDG Architecten Almere

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

Article source: Office Winhov

Work began on building the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in 1957 based on the urban development plan of S.J. van Embden. His design aimed at creating an idealised factory environment for technical research and study consisting of tall, modern buildings on stilts that were connected with one another and with the laboratories and workshops located in between them by means of aerial walkways. The plan followed the modern ideal of self-contained buildings in a continuous landscape. The rational structure in which the buildings followed a fixed grid pattern was expressed in the curtain walls of the first generation of buildings on the campus. A master plan for the reorganisation and expansion of the campus has been drawn up following the original design. It envisages the introduction of accommodation for students and researchers on the north side of the campus on the edge of the green brook valley of the Dommel.

Cité internationale Paul Ricœur in Rennes, France by Hérault Arnod Architectes

Sunday, April 2nd, 2017

Article source: v2com

The plot is located at the interface between two very different urban logics: on one side, a modern district made up of wide public spaces and large-sized buildings, on the other, the historical town-centre consisting of smaller slate-roof buildings. One of the project’s challenges is to articulate the traditional city and the modern city scales, using both the organisation of its volumes and the layout of its functions.
