Housing development Nuerensdorf Zurich, Switzerland

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

Article source: kit architects in collaboration with schibliholenstein architekten

The new residential development on the outskirts of the town Nuerensdorf consists of six buildings, which occupy the land equally. The loose alternating arrangement allows multiple connections to the open countryside in the north and to the garden framed single and multifamily dwellings in the immediate neighborhood. With their windmill-like floor plan the buildings fit the scale of the existing context. A seven and a four unit house are the two basic types, both combining duplexes with detached character, ground floor apartments and penthouses. All dwellings are dual aspects with private outdoor spaces along the recessed corners – on ground floor level as perches followed by private gardens, on first floor level as loggias and on the attic floor as spacious terraces. The individual units are organized by an entrance zone with compactly arranged adjoining rooms, a bedroom zone and an open-plan living-dining area with interesting cross and external references.

The proposed solution deals with the urban character of the closed block with a common open space for the community –the inner patio-.

To provide an adequate scale to the project, the following is proposed:

Unitary treatment of the outer façade by means of translucent glass cladding that “dematerializes” the strong presence of the closed block.

Kameleon in Bijlmer, The Netherlands by NL Architects

Thursday, July 12th, 2012

Article source: NL Architects

De Kameleon is a supersized housing block including a new shopping center and plenty of parking in the area formerly known as Bijlmermeer.

The Bijlmer is the one area in the Netherlands that sometimes is considered a ghetto. At the moment the area is going through a radical renovation process: an attempt is being made to turn it into a regular Dutch suburb. Standard low-rise housing is introduced that replaces the 10 storey apartment buildings but also the green spaces in-between them. In spite of the new format, the Bijlmer remains exotic: it is the place to be for a sensational Roti or sundried Bats.

The site is located in a housing development area in Calvia coast, close to a pine forest overlooking  the sea. The client  wanted to have a house with views among the trees.

The building is fitted in the plot towards the buildable boundary enclosing itself in a half moon shape and focusing all the rooms towards the sea. In order to preserve the existing trees the shape of the building is adapted to their position, so the constructed area is understood as independent pavillions on the one side connected on the other through a common and ample area that allows people to move along.

Student Housing Kosovo in Gjakova, Western Kosovo by Leonit Gecaj

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

Article source: Leonit Gecaj

The dormitories are applying a minimalist architecture based on the essential forms of rationalism and functionalism. Also, the module is inspired by Le Corbusier.

The reason why focusing on these styles is that to achieve the optimal performance of the student so by removing all the ornaments and unnecessary and dysfunctional loads (Adolph Loos, Ornament and Crime).
So the aforementioned building is not the Palace of Versailles or flashy baroque and rococo salon that will confuse students and at the same time will also rise the costs of construction and maintenance, but a functional object where conformism reaches the highest standards of living and welfare of the student in XXI century.
