Ladrillo in Queensland, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects 

Ladrillo (Spanish for ‘brick’) takes its cues from the Spanish Mission architectural style of the original Red Hill cottage. Utilising textured brick, recycled breezeblocks and original decorative plaster, this is architecture focused on textures – a fresh white palette not only unifies these textures, but also unites new and old. Punctuated by a central courtyard distinctly separating these spaces, the design maintains visual connections through the light, airy open architecture, which ultimately creates a beautiful backdrop for family life.

One storey high building is located in Saue parish Koidu village in a private housing area. The geometry of the house is inspired by the plot itself and the movement of the sunlight to catch as much warm southern and western sunlight as possible. The building is a shape-shifter offering different views from every angle.

WINTERGARDEN HOUSING

In January 2012, Atelier Kempe Thill in collaboration with Fres architects won the competition for fifty apartments, a dentists practice, a mother – child – care center and an underground parking at the Porte de Montmartre in Paris for the public housing corporation Paris Habitat. The apartments are in terms of budget within the lowest financing categories of public social housing for rent. The site is part of the typical former industrial estates and areas with 1960’s apartment complexes along the boulevard Périphérique that are going to be changed into contemporary housing areas.

Arthouse in Kharkiv, Ukraine by Pominchuk Architects

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Article source: Pominchuk Architects

Arthouse is our first built project in the typology of terraced houses. The compact spatial layout of the house, made of several blocks, was largely determined by the small area of the plot and the surrounding urban context. The inner structure of each unit resembles an open “bookcase”, where each living process occupies its own level, all of them being interconnected by means of an open staircase. Besides, each block has its own backyard, which can be accessed from the kitchen-dining room. This unconventional layout of the house originally served as a key to the interior of each of the units. Permeated by sunlight, the interrupted space of the house prevails over colour, texture and other ornamental features. However, while designing the interior in one of the blocks belonging to a cheerful energetic lady, we had to find a compromise between the sterility of the house and its emotional component that could be experienced as warm homeliness. Our close collaboration with the client resulted in a sort of Mediterranean dwelling that combines all the necessary features, striking a delicate balance between integrity and emotions.

Sørenga Block 6 in Oslo, Norway by MAD arkitekter

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Article source: MAD arkitekter 

The site

The Sørenga quay was until recently a container port in the eastern harbor of Oslo, near the medieval town. The redevelopment of Sørenga is part of the city’s major plans of reconnecting the city to the waterfront. While the Barcode and Tjuvholmen projects are extensions of the existing city structure, Sørenga is at the tip of what will be an entirely new district in Oslo, also comprising the Bispevika area which is still in its planning phase. The eight blocks on the Sørenga quay were planned by four architecture firms, and Block 6 is the most recent of the two blocks designed by Mad arkitekter.

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Article source: Josep Ferrando Architecture 

The architect Josep Ferrando resolves the complex urban conditions of the context and the site in which the house is located – less than 5 meters wide and with a particular topography that constrains the parcel between two streets situated at different heights – starting the conception of the project from the shaping of the volume.

Properly Breathing House in Hanoi, Vietnam by H&P Architects

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Article source: H&P Architects

A “suffocating” situation

Just 15 kilometers far from the center of Hanoi, the suburban district Dong Anh has witnessed pervasive urbanization – one of the major causes for a trend towards a maximum use of volume and quantity of construction areas. Lesser importance has been attached to the quality of used space and surrounding scenery. This has resulted in a large number of “suffocating” buildings as often found in newly planned, stuffy urban areas characterized with land plot subdivision for building row houses in Vietnam.

The Corner House in Queensland, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects 

The Corner House is a contemporary design responding to a character vernacular in a quiet suburban street in inner-city Brisbane. The house is designed around three courtyards, offering a plan that transparently connects the indoor and outdoor living spaces. A simple but poetic palette of light, natural materials is the backdrop to a rich tapestry of shadows created by the screened elements that offer a reinterpretation of the traditional verandah.

House Benz in Stuttgart, Germany by Ippolito Fleitz Group

Saturday, November 26th, 2016

Article source: Ippolito Fleitz Group 

Markus Benz, company director of prestigious furniture brand Walter Knoll, and his wife Susanne wished to find a Stuttgart base that would enable them to offer their business partners an alternative meeting place to the company headquarters 40 km away in Herrenberg on the edge of the Black Forest – and to live there too. The family found a property in the Kräherwald, a popular location above the city, and moved into what is known as a ‘coffee-grinder house’, typical of the 1920s. The house used to function as a doctor’s practice, so the layout was restored in line with its original purpose and with respect for the building’s structure and history. On one hand our task was to create a home environment that suited the family’s discerning aesthetic demands and offered a framework for their art collection. On the other hand, products from Walter Knoll were to be staged in an authentic and atmospheric context, far removed from trade fair and showroom presentations.
