Small Swedish House in Höganäs, Sweden by DinellJohansson (designed using MicroStation)

Sunday, October 30th, 2011

Article source: DinellJohansson

This small summerhouse at the coast of Höganäs was modeled after Palladios famous villas in the Veneto. Different from those extraordinary estates, this house is all about spatial economy. The goal was to create a maximum amount of spatial subdivisions in a building whose size was limited by budget constraints. With Palladios villas it shares the intriguing quality of the cross shaped space and the idea of summer life as an utterly joyful experience.

Fortress of Franzenfeste in Italy by Markus Scherer, Meran with Walter Dietl, Schlanders Designed using Microstation

Sunday, September 25th, 2011

Article source: Markus Scherer, Meran with Walter Dietl, Schlanders

“Begun under Francis I in the year 1833 – completed by Ferdinand I in the year 1838”, reads the Latin inscription over the gate of the fortress. In just five years, over 6,000 workers and soldiers built a blocking position at one of the narrowest points in the Eisack valley. It has the dimensions of a small town and, with a surface area of 20 hectares, is the largest fortification in the Alpine region. With this monumental defensive work the Habsburgs hoped to halt the advance of the revolutionary changes provoked by the French revolution.

Ben van Berkel / UNStudio’s Galleria Centercity in Cheonan, South Korea

Sunday, May 1st, 2011

We just received some new images for this project. So, here is the updated project.

If museums are turning into supermarkets, why then should department stores not turn into museums?

“The Galleria Cheonan responds to the current retail climate in Asia, where department stores also operate as social and semi-cultural meeting places. Because of this, the quality of the public spaces within the building was treated as an integral aspect of the design.”, Ben van Berkel

HAMRA in Gotland, Sweden by DinellJohansson designed using Bentley MicroStation

Wednesday, April 20th, 2011

The brief came out of the very limited budget: a house as simple as possible. Equally simple as the barn we wanted to convert to a summer dwelling, but which never showed up on the market: one open space with a large number of possible beds, cooking in the middle, washing facilities outside the house. Planing regulations ruled the placement of the house to the inner part of the plot which at the time of designing was still densly vegetated and scarcely accesible. Hence the house was designed with generic qualities, creating no front- or backside, treating all sides of the site equally. Four large openings 2,4x2m are placed according to rotational symmetry, one in each facade. Facing north is a fixed window, the other three are glazed doors. There is no hierarchy between the doors – anyone can be used as an entrance. Two roof windows add skylight to the interior.
