Castagnola in Lugano, Switzerland by HERZOG & DE MEURON

Sunday, May 27th, 2018

Article source: HERZOG & DE MEURON 

The well-preserved gardens of the 17th century Villa Favorita, lining the shores of Lake Lugano at the foot of Monte Bré, are of great historical significance. The 13 romanticist buildings situated in the gardens were erected between 1687 and 1932. Their historicizing style is characteristic of Ticino architecture and, in fact, generally of the villas on the lake shores of northern Italy. Originally, the Villa Favorita was a freestanding, single ensemble of buildings between Lugano and Castagnola. Today it is surrounded by modernist blocks of housing from the second half of the 20th century. This modern architecture, is also a typical Ticino style, that emerged in response to the appeal of the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland as a second home and a financial center.

Bookshelf House in Yokohama, Japan by Shinsuke Fujii Architects

Sunday, May 27th, 2018

Article source: Shinsuke Fujii Architects 

By making the wall diagonal, a new easy-to-use bookshelf integrated with the building was born.  Because all the shelves of the bookshelf are inclined, children, women and old people can easily climb without a ladder, and books of high position can be easily taken out and put in. In addition books don’t collapse when an earthquake occurs.

Résidence à Stoneham in Canada by PARKA – Architecture & Design

Sunday, May 27th, 2018

Article source: PARKA – Architecture & Design

This residential project has been imagined with an intention to be integrated with the landscape and the site. Designed for a young and dynamic family, the project emerges both inside and outside, creating spaces for living in nature. The garden-level backyard and the large breakthroughs looking out on the surrounding forest was an inspiration to play on the perspectives and the context. The living areas overlooking the forest provides a feeling of living in the treetops. The structure enveloping the terrace adds privacy and perfectly frames the landscape.

Article source: INT2 ARCHITECTURE

A small private house is located in a picturesque place about 30 km from Riga. The land plot is on the boarder of the forest and is located near the Gulf of Riga.

A separate position of the buildings (house and garage) on the site is due to the fact that they were erected on the previously existing foundations. The buildings are connected by a terrace.

Niczky apartment in Kőszeg, Hungary by Béres Architects

Friday, May 25th, 2018

Article source: Béres Architects

Only a few years have passed by since Béres Architects designed its first realized projekt, the Hideg house in Kőszeg, Hungary. The client, Attila Hideg recently found another interesting property where he intended to create something unusual in a medieval context. As he explains „The apartment in the nearly 400-year-old building needed a thorough renovation after most of its values were damaged or hidden during the last reconstruction works in the 1980’s. We had to virtually step back in time to recall and save the values of the house”

De La Canardière Residence in Val-Morin, Canada by Atelier BOOM-TOWN

Thursday, May 24th, 2018

Article source: v2com

This residence was designed to enable a sister and brother to meet as a family on special occasions and to unwind in contact with nature. This project sprouted along the shores of a lake up in the Laurentians in a wooded area with a significantly consistent slope. This elevation, which offers a bird’s eye view of the lake, is the backbone for the development of this architectural concept—grasping hold of the land through the blending of two areas intersecting one another. The parcelling out of its shapes made its integration with the landscape possible. Its establishment forms part of a circuit throughout a site where paths extend internally, creating views, such as observation posts towards the surrounding landscape.
