Espai Ridaura in Girona, Spain by Capella Garcia Arquitectura (designed using ArchiCAD)

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

Article source: Capella Garcia Arquitectura

This is a multipurpose facility in Santa Cristina d’Aro, Girona, in the district of Baix Empordà. Santa Cristina d’Aro is situated close to the coast, in the upper reach of the Vall d’Aro, and the river Ridaura flows through it close to the town centre. The municipality is growing as a result of the large amount of tourist activity during the summer months, which means that it already possesses considerable leisure and cultural facilities. Nonetheless, the facilities in Santa Cristina were very basic and quite a few years old, as well as being at some distance from the town centre. So much so that the concerts of the Santa Cristina International Chamber Music Festival took place in the parish church.

Hotel Balneum in Tiszafüred, Hungary by Ferdinand and Ferdinand Architects (designed using ArchiCAD, Artlantis, and AutoCAD)

Saturday, March 31st, 2012

Article source: Ferdinand and Ferdinand Architects

The idea of the architect was to endow the building with a modern and esthetic  appearance using traditional local materials. That’s why light plaster was selected together with ceramic roof tiles and plenty of wood –  for terraces, for pergolas and for shields. Thanks to the  flood forests  – in this part of the country wood has always been available for building village houses. Willow tree is probably the most characteristic tree of the region,  twigs and branches of willow trees were wickered to create usefull household objects, such as baskets, armchairs, etc. This tradition was continued in the interior decoration of the spa – the reception desk was made of wickered willow tree, as well as the lampshades of suspension lamps and of consoles, and wicked willow branches were used to shape chests of drawers – all that was hand made by local ladies, in accordance with the local patriot attitude of the owner.

A dramatic and elemental steel infrastructure creates the possibility for ultimate volumetric flexibility where the homeowner can customize spatial prerogatives. Rising 22 stories over the design district in Miami, Florida—Cube promotes its occupants to design their own domain with the possibility of connecting multiple cube modules vertically, horizontally, and diagonally in addition to creating double height volumes, garden voids and cantilevered living environments.

Article source: Gudmundur Jonsson Arkitektkontor

The Cabin is designed for adaption to multiple settings not taking any particular site into consideration, being a product for mass-production distribution.

The general idea is to establish a Cabin-concept that favours a nice landscape setting with the need of appreciating a wonderful view. Two volumes containing bedrooms and service-area are composed in order to obtain the living and dining room space as glazed pavilion in-between giving contact to the nature in all directions.

Canada Post Corporation in Ontario, Canada by Kingsland + Architects (designed with ArchiCAD)

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Article source: Kingsland + Architects

We were given the task to design a single storey building, the ubiquitous factory / warehouse building with front office. A dissection of the program provided us with a simple theme. By nature of its program, the building consists of two independent spaces. The heart and soul of the building is the letter carriers sortation facility, a function likely defined as ‘blue collar’ and not far from functioning and appearing just like that of a “factory”.

Oleanderweg in Halle-Neustadt, Germany by Stefan Forster Achitekten (designed using ArchiCAD)

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

Article source: Stefan Forster Achitekten

This conversion of existing prefabricated building in Halle-Neustadt resulted from the city reconstruction for the International Architectural Exhibition (IBA) in 2010. Originally, 2 or 3 apartments per floor were arranged around 11 staircases.  By reducing the staircases to 6 and removing the associated corridors.  It has allowed for the extension and rearrangment of the apartments. Outdoor spaces have been formed by removing alternating sections of the 3rd and 4th floorplates, creating large outdoor terrace spaces.  On the floors below, wide, continious balconies provide quality outside spaces for the flats.
