Strijp R Housing by Diederendirrix Architects

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013

Article source: Diederendirrix Architects

Along with the urban development plan made in collaboration with Buro Lubbers, diederendirrix also developed the housing for a section phase of Strijp R. The ground-access dwellings vary in typology, size, layout and price but clearly form a whole. Our sources of inspiration are clearly visible. The characteristic appearance of the new housing with its jutting concrete roof edges and canopies, alternating roof shapes, storey-high windows and exceptional angles and bay windows is a charming echo of the industrial past of Strijp R.

Article source:  Diederendirrix Architects

The new housing estate De Beljaart is situated on the northwest edge of Dongen. We designed 59 ground-access single family dwellings for this location. These are divided amongst blocks containing between three and seven residential units. The roofs stretch out like a red landscape on the light brickwork of the blocks.

Recently completed ‘Miedzyborska 11′ housing estate, designed by Grupa 5 Architekci is located in Warsaw’s Praga district and comprises of 154 dwellings of medium and high standard. The main goal set by the designers was to maintain a green character of the place. It was accomplished by splitting development into singular buildings and by raising garage slab above the street level to hide all car circulation areas. „Green podium” hid traffic under the ground and provided an additional open recreation space on top.

172 Social Housing Building in Sarriguren by Alfonso Alzugaray

Sunday, November 10th, 2013

Article source: Alfonso Alzugaray

We want to raise the inner lane to the category of “reason” of the project. In order to do this, besides the compositional order decisions, we force the access to the houses through this space, qualifying it and generating in this way activity and relation and justifying in our opinion the design of this street.

Housing Complex in Niigata, Japan by TAKUYAHOSOKAI + Hirose Architects

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

Article source: TAKUYAHOSOKAI

Noh, a traditional, Japanese performance art, serves as the main inspiration for the architectural concept. The performance of Noh is heavily reliant upon the use of delicately carved masks. Although at first these masks may appear to present a neutral expression they are formed in such a way as to convey a broad emotional spectrum.

Esteban Housing in Nantes, France by Leibar-Seigneurin

Friday, October 4th, 2013

Article source: Leibar-Seigneurin

The starting point for the architectural approach of this project was a piece of “virgin” land, the form and profile of which gave little indication of the mutations to come.

We therefore considered the site as a starting point, a “base” on which different types of architecture could be developed.

International Social Housing Competition (VIVA) 1st Prize in Ceuta, Spain by IND [Inter National Design]

Sunday, September 15th, 2013

Article source: IND [Inter National Design] 

The international competition on Vanguard Social Housing (VIVA) organized by the Spanish Ministry of Housing placed a high emphasis on the relationship of the new architecture with the urban environment under the slogan ‘We Make City’. Addressed to disadvantaged citizens and -as expected in most social housing projects- it had a tight budget. We decided to confront the tightness of the budget by taking advantage of the richness of the site complexity.

Alvenaria Social Housing Competition Entry in Lisbon, Portugal by fala atelier

Saturday, August 10th, 2013

 Article source: fala atelier

The competition sought a new identity for the “Alvenaria” neighbourhood in Lisbon. After many years of indifference, a single intervention was required to resolve the whole site while bringing it back to the present.

The proposal did not intend to encompass all the volumes in a static solution. A module was defined, a cube of 2.55m, and the variations and multiplications allowed the dwellings to develop iteratively.
