Västra Kajen Housing in Jönköping, Sweden by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

Thursday, April 21st, 2016

Article source: Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

Located on the quayside of the Munksjön lake, these two urban housing blocks are based on a long term strategy of sustainability, creating attractive housing on one of the best sites in central Jönköping. Rather than a row of standard housing slabs, the requested number of apartments was assembled into two large units. The two compact volumes establish a solid position proportionally acceptable both to the city as well as the lake. It also minimizes the building envelope in line with the low energy concept.

Located on the southeastern edge of the residential neighborhood of Saint Louis-les-Grésillons, facing a large swathe of vegetation in the unbuilt floodplain of a meander of the Seine, the shape of the lot results from a restructuring of a much larger city block previously occupied by a hostel for migrant workers. The project stands at the southwest corner of the block and is delimited by the chemin de Beauregard on the south side, the rue de la Chapelle on the west side and a new road on the north side.

K.I.S.S. – Residential and Commercial Development in Zurich, Switzerland by Evolution Design AG

Wednesday, December 16th, 2015

Article source: Evolution Design AG

The Swiss architecture and design practice Evolution Design, in close collaboration with the client Swiss Life, created 46 individual 2.5-4.5 room maisonettes and flats with a unique concept.

The aim was to develop flats, which would go beyond the functionality and offer an ideal added value as well as have their own identity. This approach responds to the increasing need of individuality and plurality in our current society. Therefore the development of KISS’s design put the future tenant and his personal lifestyle at the centre of its thinking.
