Arnhem Central Transfer Terminal in The Netherlands by UNStudio

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

Article source: UNStudio

The new €37.5m (£27.6m) Transfer Terminal at Arnhem Central Station in the Netherlands has now completed.

The station is the result of an ambitious 20-year project – masterplanned by UNStudio – to redevelop the wider station area; the largest post-war development in Arnhem. Backed by the Dutch government, this transfer hub rewrites the rulebook on train stations and is the most complex of its type in Europe. The station will become the new ‘front door’ of the city, embracing the spirit of travel, and is expected to establish Arnhem as an important node between Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium. The new terminal houses commercial areas, and a conference centre and provides links to the nearby office plaza, city centre, underground parking garage and the Park Sonsbeek. The area around the station will become a place in of itself, with 160,000m2 of offices, shops and a cinema complex.

Esker House in San Candido, Italy by Plasma Studio

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

Article source: Plasma Studio

Esker Haus (Esker = Stratified geological formation) is a self-contained residential unit placed on top of an existing house from the 1960s. The project has been developed as a parasite which adopts the structure of its host and gradually distorts it to fit a unique organization and morphology. The apartment is formed by a series of steel and timber frames that deform to recreate the smooth hillsides of the surrounding Dolomites. This partly accessible roofscape also determines the spatial character inside; the spaces unfold through a series of angular and dynamic planes creating ever-changing perspectives and spatial constellations.

Glanhof 1 in Klagenfurt, Austria by ARCHITECTS COLLECTIVE ZT-GmbH

Saturday, November 21st, 2015

Article source: ARCHITECTS COLLECTIVE ZT-GmbH 

The Glanhof is a multi-story housing complex with 150 units in the center of Klagenfurt, Austria. It is named for its location on the Glan River and the arrangement of three building structures surrounding a green and sunny courtyard. In the first phase, a long-stretched structure was built along the Pischeldorfer street, which can be reached via an access balcony with a unique irregular zig-zag geometric facade that integrates hundreds of photovoltaic elements. The 50 – 75 m2 sized subsidized aartments feature up to 15 m2 large balconies oriented to the courtyard. Part of the energy concept of the virtually self-sufficient project is the geothermal brine reservoir that stores excess solar energy from the photovoltaic system during sunny months.
