Vodniy Residential Street Block in Moscow, Russia by SPEECH architectural

Friday, August 26th, 2016

Article source: SPEECH architectural

This residential complex consists of five 26-storey buildings arranged in a checkerboard pattern on top of a multi-storey underground car park. This configuration of volumes of identical shape and height has made it possible to create a system of semi-enclosed inner courtyards between the blocks. The main entrances to the buildings face the courtyards and take the form of stately portals.

Hybrid Farm Apartment Building in New York by Weston Baker Creative Group

Thursday, August 25th, 2016

Article source: Weston Baker Creative Group

The Hybrid Farm Apartment Building is a new building type designed for cities, which offers farm space for locally grown produce as well as residences. This particular hybrid farm design also addresses local conditions at the High Line and positions the hybrid building within the general context of architecture in the area. The geometry of the building adjusts to the angle of the sun throughout the day. Only the top of the building sees the morning sun because of the height of the surrounding buildings in Chelsea. As the sun comes across the sky to the West, the building twists to evenly distribute daylight throughout the day. The farm terraces are accessible by residents of the apartments on each floor. There is a public observation garden on the top floor and an art gallery on the second floor, both accessible from the High Line.

Social Housing in Sa Pobla, Spain by studio RIPOLLTIZON

Tuesday, August 16th, 2016

Article source: studio RIPOLLTIZON 

The elements with which to develop the project are not far away. They are features that tell us about the climate, the context and the way we live. Simply walking around the place and looking at… the courtyards, the filters, the light, the plots configuration, the small scale of the buildings… the singularity of each of the houses and the amazing configurations that emerge when they are grouped… not really knowing where one house ends and the next one begins.

LEBENsuhr Zopfmatte residential complex in Switzerland by fsp Architekten AG

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

Article source: fsp Architekten AG

The Zopfmatte residential complex aims to help and encourage residents to live independently in their own homes, whilst meeting their needs in every stage of life. The Zopfmatte housing concept demonstrates a forward-looking understanding of living arrangements for the elderly. In Suhr, the political, social and individual independence sought by (very) elderly residents is construed as assisted independence. The necessary occupational and organisational structures have been consistently integrated into the project. An on-site contact team is available to residents on a daily basis. Interfaces to the community are in place. The contact team plays a key role in the Zopfmatte operating concept. It consists of a contact person and a caretaker with additional responsibilities. Together they take care of the service office for the complex. Their main task is to help residents achieve independence, to provide them with information and to offer organisational advice if necessary, for example in their dealings with authorities and official bodies. Administrative operations in Zopfmatte are financed by the tenants and apartment owners by means of a flat-rate solidarity fee. Based on these conditions, \”Ageing in Place\” is achieved.

Schwarzwaldblock in Mannheim, Germany by STEFAN FORSTER ARCHITEKTEN

Tuesday, August 9th, 2016

Article source: STEFAN FORSTER ARCHITEKTEN

Due to irreparable damage, the existing buildings in this block had to be demolished. This was done in stages and construction work on the new residential buildings proceeded in four phases. Careful management of the construction project enabled the residents to remain in the development. The new apartments are well equipped and barrier-free in design; on the ground floor the apartments have a garden, on the main floors, broad balconies and on the top floors, generous roof terraces. This development reinstates the closed city-block structure at this point, with a clearly defined street side and a shared, private courtyard behind; as such it adheres to the existing development structure in the urban district of Lindenhof. Details such as the sandstone clinker-clad ground floor and the concrete windowsills are also taken from the forms found in the built environment of the immediate vicinity. Spread over nine years, this construction project provides a total of 235 cooperative housing apartments.

Studios 18 in Rajasthan, India by Sanjay Puri Architects

Friday, August 5th, 2016

Article source: v2com

Situated on an undulating site in the deserts of Ras, Rajasthan, India, Studios 18 apartments are a part of an entire layout spread over 36 acres. With no buildings or development in the vicinity, this layout is being created for the working people of a new cement manufacturing plant that has commenced production nearby. Close to the site there is no existing development and there are four villages at a distance of 1 km from the site. Taking a cue from the organic layouts of the neighbouring villages near the site, the residential units are interspersed within the existing contours along organic streets that weave through the site.

Urby Staten Island in New York by Concrete

Thursday, August 4th, 2016

Article source: Concrete

Smart use of space

All Urby apartments feel larger than they are as a result of smart use of the available space. Despite being compact, the units are built with an optimal flow and spatial balance in mind. Sliding doors between connecting spaces let residents fully open up the apartment and experience its full size and sense of space. All apartments boast windows across the full width of the units. Combined with a straightforward design and use of light colours, the large windows bring daylight and a sense of spaciousness deep into the apartments, while at the same time offering panoramic views.

Entrepot Macdonald in Paris, France by Kengo Kuma and Associates

Saturday, July 30th, 2016

Article source: Kengo Kuma and Associates

Macdonald had been a gigantic distribution center since the 1970s, located at Macdonald Street in Paris. OMA was the master planner of the project and their proposal was rather distinctive. They preserved the old two-storied building (which extends as long as 500m), and asked 5 other architects to work on newly added programs. We were responsible for the western part of the building, and designed facilities for a junior and senior high schools, and local sports center.

Boulogne B4A in France by Brenac & Gonzalez

Friday, July 29th, 2016

Article source: Brenac & Gonzalez 

Among the buildings composing macro-lot B4, B4A takes on an iconic image, the star shape of which owes everything to its location.

Standing at the tip of an acute angle at the intersection of rue Marcel Bontemps and Cours Emile Zola, its volumes focus all of its 95 accommodations around 3 vertical openings. To develop maximum linearity of the façade, the building is hollowed out and turns its façades to the best exposures. This striving for light engenders sculptural shapes where the recessed façade and alignment with the street express a continual organic movement.The wide balconies that ring the building on every floor underscore each floor with a line, like so many piled up layers. These platters rise in stacks to compose a graphic system of undulating lines that amplify its volumes. On a scale with Cours Emile Zola, it looks like an event in the city, also reflecting quality use of the outside spaces for each apartment. The building’s exterior skin is composed of fine float-finished plaster. In contrast the façades of the access balconies are clad in wooden panels, thus putting an accent on the domestic nature of their use.
