Timmerhuis in Rotterdam, Netherlands by OMA

Thursday, December 24th, 2015

Article source: OMA 

For Rotterdam’s Timmerhuis, a new building for the city hall that accommodates municipal services, offices, and residential units, OMA conceived a modular building with repeated units gradually set back from the street as they rise into two irregular peaks. The building’s composition of smaller cells creates an impressive, complex form when viewed from Coolsingel, one of Rotterdam’s main arteries, and allows for subtlety and adaptability as the new building meets the Stadstimmerhuis (a municipal building, from 1953), which surrounds it on two sides.

FREDY in Bruxelles, Belgium by LABEL ARCHITECTURE

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015

Article source: LABEL ARCHITECTURE

The task was to transform a 4 floor’s single-family house into two apartments. Therefore, the challenge was to provide separate circulation and outdoor spaces to each dwelling. For this purpose, an extension volume has been built. Its exterior walls are cladded with lozenge tiles, commonly used to cover gable facades.

CYIN in Asahikawa, Japan by archi LAB.t+m

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015

Article source: archi LAB.t+m

Located in Asahikawa in Hokkaido Prefecture, the house was built on a neighbouring plot situated on the southern end of the owner’s family’s home. Due to the climatic conditions of Asahikawa – an inland town with an extraordinary amount of snowfall in winter, and with a dramatic 40 degrees temperature difference between the summer and winter months – the design brief called for an effective architectural solution that not only incorporates good snow management system but also one that is able to minimise heat build up in summer, and reduce the pressure on heaters in winter.

Urban Revitalization in Long Beach, California by Gwynne Pugh Urban Studio

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015

Article source: Gwynne Pugh Urban Studio

In any major city, there are certain areas that become, or have always been, rough around the edges, driving residents away and contributing to a sense of urban decay. Whether through neglect, a shift in demographics, a change in the local economy, or other market forces, these areas become not just an eyesore, but a blight on the neighborhood. And so it was with a section of town in East Long Beach, California, which had deteriorated to the point of being a place that most residents of the city actively avoided.

Waschhaus in Andechs, Germany by BUERO WAGNER

Sunday, December 20th, 2015

Article source: BUERO WAGNER

One of the oldest pilgrimage sites in Bavaria can be found on the east bank of the Ammersee, the monastery Andechs. As a commodity of the Benedictine abbey Saint Bonifaz in Munich, the monastery ensures the financial basis of the abbey’s pastoral, social and cultural work – according to the credo “ora et labora – pray and work.” With the renovation of the estate’s old washhouse, located between Florianstadl and the butchery, the workshop, laundry and monastery distillery, which are accommodated inside the building, could be modernized and reorganized according to their current requirements.

Stanley Residence in Ontario, Canada by DPAI Architecture Inc

Sunday, December 20th, 2015

Article source: DPAI Architecture Inc

This new private residence In Hamilton, ON communicates that a new and sustainable form can be invented while highlighting and celebrating the neighbourhood’s historical legacy. The house celebrates and reminds us of the social importance of the front porch. Its material palette is chose to be deliberately commensurate with established patterns. The form of the carport and absence of an enclosed garage increases the likelihood of spontaneous contact between neighbours in the few seconds between car and front door. The house is respectful to the context from within as well.
