REMODELLING ROZEMAAI HOUSING ANTWERP / BELGIUM
ATELIER KEMPE THILL WINS EUROPEAN TENDER TRANSFORMATION ROZEMAAI HOUSING – ANTWERP / BELGIUM
Atelier Kempe Thill has recently won the European tender for the transformation of two apartment blocks in the district Rozemaai, Antwerp. In the closed competition five teams were involved. The site, located next to the nature park “de Oude Landen”, calls for an intensification of the relationship with the environment on the one hand, on the other hand to deal with the noise from the highway and the harbour. By creating a new glazed gallery and by closing the open-air areas by using a full glass façade a noise barrier is created around the building.

Santa Maria is a housing development located in a historic protected site in the heart of Valle de Bravo, a small colonial city dating from 1530, which is 2 hours away from Mexico City. This historic town has a strong physical context and is found in the outskirts of a man-made lake. Our site is located a hundred yards from the church of Santa Maria Ahuacatlan, a colonial church that dates back to the XVI century.

The task has been to design the master plan for a new housing district in the Lindholm area of Gothenburg’s old industrial port.
The Lindholm area, dominated by former industrial buildings and shipyards, has been transformed into large-scale business districts and open plazas. The master plan proposal introduces a humane scale and a different architecture focusing on the small-scale urban spaces within the scheme by refining the positioning, geometry and transparency of the buildings.

The neighbor is one of the environments, too
I intended to make a building like the small city.
Originally, a human being is a creature living in the crowd. Nevertheless it is said that most family types are single life households in present Japan. The person keeps the balance while going back and forth in a personal domain like the house and the state of the crowd like the society. Can the apartment \there is society in the immediate neighbor of a personal domain\ become city life in microcosm?

Sustainable development must begin with a general reflection of the building process, including on materials. It is important to prove that today, building a sustainable and energy-efficient, is not necessarily synonymous with building in wood. Indeed the extensive use of a material can quickly become detrimental to the economic market. Steel is a building material to take into account development considerations sustainable in many aspects.

2+1 officina architettura has recently completed a housing project in Elmas, a small town in the south of Sardinia, Italy. The office, which finds its field of action between artistic design and architecture, seeks for experimentation within contemporary design thinking, ‘aiming for the development of contemporary art and architecture and directing their own intellectual, professional and human resources for the improvement of society and ethics’. Amid a building context fully regulated to prevent and constrain rather than experiment with new architectural solutions, 2+1 has demonstrated how to make the best of it, turning those constrictions upside down.
