Urban Dock in Bordeaux, France by Hamonic + Masson & Associés

Monday, May 28th, 2018

Article source: Hamonic + Masson & Associés

The Bassins à flots are a 162 ha niche site, a high-quality port and manufacturing district for which Bordeaux City Council has development plans. Nicolas Michelin’s instructions are to create a link between the site and the horizon and to build on the metaphor of the factory, warehouses and the navy.

Our project is very industrial in that it is solid, compact and metal-clad. There is the occasional raised element, one 9-storey building jutting up like a periscope. That is what the project is all about: putting together a serene skyline and creating an urban form similar to a village at ground level, with footpaths to maintain a feeling of wilderness.

The project is located on the paulista shore in the region of the Rain Forest and the land has a mountainous topography with dense vegetation.

House In Rua Do Paraíso, Portugal by fala atelier

Sunday, May 27th, 2018

Article source: fala atelier

A bourgeois 19th century single family house was to be divided into a series of identical studio apartments: four living spaces, some circulation areas and a private backyard. The project happens within a given system of constraints, aiming at an unexpected complexity, finding a certain interest within a very banal set of programs.

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.

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.
