Funen Blok K – Verdana in The Netherlands by NL Architects

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

Article source: NL Architects

These ten houses are part of a master plan for 500 dwellings and a park by the Architecten Cie, called ‘Het Funen, Hidden Delights’. The triangular site is located between the historic center and the recently redeveloped harbor area in the east of Amsterdam, a former parking lot for towed cars. Along the east and the south side a ‘wall’ containing over 300 apartments and office spaces shields the site from the noise of the adjacent railroad. Inside this semi open block a loose grid is set up, containing 16 smaller housing blocks positioned in a park. These ‘Hidden Delights’ vary in height from 9 to 18 meters. A shift from the public to the private has taken place. The urban plan including the park is initiated and commissioned -traditionally operations directed by the City- and developed and build by one single company, IBC Vastgoed. The maintenance of the park will be handled by a private firm, not by the city, but the park will remain publicly accessible. There are three almost square blocks that measure 30.5 by 27.7 meters and should contain 2.5 stories. It was obligatory to build the first two stories in alignment; the third should be 50% building and 50% roof terrace/garden. In our block the volume is distributed evenly over the ten houses; each is allocated 633 cubic meters. The houses are organized according to a typology known as back to back housing. They will be accessed from an aisle in the middle of the block. This “mini-canyon” rids the facades of the obligatory storage spaces and technical facilities that formally have to be accessible from the public domain.

Unboxed – 100% recycable prefab wooden house in Polignano a Mare Town, Italy by Barberio Colella ARC

Friday, October 24th, 2014

Article source: Barberio Colella ARC

Description: “Unboxed”, designed by Micaela Colella and Maurizio Barberio, is the wooden transposition of the typical characters of the Mediterranean house, as a valid alternative to masonry or frame structure buildings. The house is think to be placed in the beautiful town of Polignano a Mare, Apulia. The high standardization of the modules and their total prefabrication, allow to study various solutions easily. This goal is achieved by splitting the building in several basic structural elements designed to be mounted with all the finishes and without thermal bridges. The house is 100% recyclable. It is also completely removable – thus movable – thanks to an innovative foundation made of steel, which allows to reduce or eliminate the excavation. A low inclination roof on the top (5%) allows the installation of solar roof tiles (Tegosolar technology), capable of producing electricity and heat. The house has a clear division between the living and the sleeping area with a glazed corridor/entrance in the middle: a journey in the nature, able to re-establish the contact with the surrounding environment (flow of time) at each passage.

The Future of Prefabricated Wooden Homes by marc benjamin drewes ARCHITEKTUREN

Friday, October 24th, 2014

Article source: marc benjamin drewes ARCHITEKTUREN

In our opinion the future of prefabricated wooden houses is a simple but well reasoned solid construction without any glue or synthetic elements. This leads not only to real sustainability, but creates a pleasant indoor climate and a friendly atmosphere.
The lightness of wood and the possibilities of prefabricating large-size elements qualifies wooden houses to densify an urban landscape. A city as Berlin has a huge amount of flat roofs that can carry light wooden constructions. People can live in individual houses with spectacular views in the middle of the city.
