Reitarena Stubai in Fulpmes im Stubai, Tyrol, Austria by ao-architekten

Wednesday, September 12th, 2012

Article source: Michael Felder

Position within the landscape:

In order to establish a large enough flat surface area for the equestrian facility, the preexisting slope has been divided into several terraces. These terraces provide the necessary surface area required by each independent structure, such as the indoor riding arena, the stables, the open space, the kids club, the operator’s apartment, and subsequently trail away into the open country. Objects such as stables and the adjoining building are incorporated into these intersecting lines, which manifest themselves as batter and supporting wall, whereas the indoor riding arena and the gallery of the open space rest on the landscape.

Selvika in Havøysund, Finnmark Norway by RRA

Friday, July 13th, 2012

Article source: RRA

The initial approach was to single out and magnify the experience of walking from the roadside down to the seaside at this very special place. Therefore a main concern was to slow down this movement and make the path itself a means of refocusing the experiential mode: a measured, restrained approach that creates awareness.

LUX – Landscape design in Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg by AllesWirdGut Architektur ZT GmbH

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

Article source: AllesWirdGut Architektur ZT GmbH

Between forward-facing high-rise buildings and blast furnaces of the past the new Steelyard square forms the center of Belval Ouest, a city development project which is currently constructed in Luxembourg on the grounds of a former steel mill. The disused industrial site´s atmosphere was characterized by wideness and roughness as well as pioneer plants such as mosses and birch. The former situation is necessarily literally covered by the new use and new design. Our major goal was it to let the now hidden qualities shine through the redesign.

Microrifugio alpino – Wardrobe in the landscape in Madesimo, Italy by Enrico Scaramellini Architetto

Friday, May 4th, 2012

Article source: Enrico Scaramellini Architetto

The project is based on two specific conditions: – on one side the client’s needs, looking for a small and intimate space; – on the other a small, special and precious place. The alpine landscape dominates the place: it becomes evident the condition of a privileged and unique space.

The concept of size guides the project. Great is the land, the landscape: small is the place, the space. There is a mutual relationship that inspires the design process. What is the role of the “room” in relation to the landscape? How the landscape reflects, “adopts” the room? The point of view changes in a frenzied search for balance.

Les Thermes in Strassen, Luxembourg

Friday, May 4th, 2012

Article source: HVP

A large communal leisure amenity set in the landscape but yet easily reachable in terms of transportation. The building is elliptical in plan, the volume is (to quote the architects) a “flying saucer”. Deliveries are made underground; at ground floor level there is a large entrance hall that functions as a distributor and is connected to the swimming area by floor-toceiling glazing. From the hall one makes one’s way to the changing rooms, swimming zones, sauna area as well as to the lift leading to the upper floor. There are three different swimming areas, each separated by broad relaxation zones with rich planting and separate access to the outside.

Heatherlands Pool House in Devon, UK by Satellite Architects (designed with Vectorworks)

Saturday, April 14th, 2012

Article source: Satellite Architects

Heatherlands is a substantial addition to an existing house, built in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the Dorset Devon border. It responds carefully to the folding of the landscape and roof pitches of the existing house, The folds create splits which highlight views, both concealing and opening to them. A new living room forms a transition point between the old and the new, collecting reflected views and light. Situated to the West of the existing house, the structure takes the stance of a traditional outbuilding, acting as a paddock boundary whilst protecting the gardens. The addition defines a new approach to the building, entrance court and outdoor terrace to the South. Adopting a number of sustainable strategies the building includes passive ventilation, sustainable materials and highly insulated construction. The existing building is wrapped in shingle, which will weather together with the new larch rain screens, covering the addition.
