Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

Article source: 3RW Arkitekter

The student houses at Grønneviksøren are an attempt to answer a big challenge in growing cities today. How do we create sustainable architecture for a great number of people – in this case the students – who need homes for a low budget in the city?

Grønneviksøren, as a transformation area, is located just outside of Bergen city center, by a 20 minute walk. It consists of 16 different building groups with varying height up to 8 floors.

16 SOCIAL HOUSING UNITS in Charleville-Mézières, France by a/LTA architectes urbanistes

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

Article source: a/LTA architectes urbanistes

We work on a firmly contemporary, contextual and reactive architecture. Each of our architectural answers are heading towards an originality specific to the project, complying with the program and the project’s surroundings On every proposal, we specifically work on the context. We are particularly interested in closed, distant, historical and sociological background of the project. These datas «are nourishing» architecture. As the contexts in which we evolve are rarely homogeneous, our writing tends to be hybrid.

Article source: Gerber Architekten

At the award ceremony of 2014 “Carl-Friedrich Fischer Prize for humane housing“, the head-end buildings of the Quarter of Nations have been awarded with one of the first prizes. The Hamburg housing project impressed the Jury, consisting of Christiane Ruth Hansmann (foundation director), Uli Hellweg (IBA Hamburg GmbH) and Professor Jörn Walter (Oberbaudirektor Hamburg), with its combination of a social housing building with a passive house. Out of 90 entered projects from the Hamburg urban area, in addition to the Quarter of Nations, the “Neue Hamburger Terrassen“ (LAN Architekten) and the “Gartenquartier Kleine Horst“ (SEHW Architekten) also received awards. The award, which was first made this year, aims to promote the intention of the former Regierungsbaumeister, Carl-Friedrich Fischer, to provide humane housing in the city and nearby.

52 COUNCIL FLATS IN NANTERRE, France by Colboc Franzen & Associés

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Article source: Colboc Franzen & Associés

The Hoche ecodistrict is rising from the ground on old industrial sites. It has to mediate between the scale of the Chemin-de-l’Ile park and the A14 motorway that cuts through it, and the far smaller scale of an area of detached houses dating back to the 1930s. The two plots selected for the development are a good illustration of the challenge. The housing is divided into housing blocks that are look onto public space and face the eight-storey towers between them and the motorway and a square, but in the centre of the block are houses of the same dimensions as the existing detached houses.

Harlem Community Rooftop Farm in New York by EOA/Elmslie Osler Architect

Thursday, October 9th, 2014

Article source: Elmslie Osler Architect

Access to affordable housing and fresh, healthy food are often scarce in New York City. We have designed the Harlem Community Rooftop Farm to help alleviate the dearth of these basic needs in one Manhattan Neighborhood. This combined affordable housing development and community garden also provides much-needed green space and a reprieve from the busy streets below. This community garden in Harlem redevelops the existing roofscape above Citarella to include farming that is publically accessible via a wide stair leading up from 126th Street. The stair is constructed of concrete and reclaimed redwood marking the transition from sidewalk to elevated garden. Once at the top there is a deck of reclaimed redwood shaded by small fruit trees that leads to a gradual downward slope with spacious low steps and benches for sitting, gathering and observing busy 125th Street. Rooftop planter boxes that are open for use by the community are supplemented by vertical farming walls which are maintained by residents of the affordable housing units in the adjacent building. The vertical farming panels are made of stainless steel and are accessible via balconies running the entire length of the south-west facing façade.
