JJ—Family House in Bratislava, Slovakia by JRKVC

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014

Article source: JRKVC 

The site is located over an emerging development in Záhorská Bystrica, a small town near the capital. The spacious plot recalls a crater that is open into beautiful vistas on one side and protected by steep slopes on the rest. Mostly this rare combination of space and intimacy led us to the idea of an extroverted, open house.

4 Springs Lane in Rappahannock County, VA by Robert M. Gurney, FAIA Architect

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

Article source: Robert M. Gurney, FAIA Architect 

Rolling topography, open fields and woodlands comprise a 24 acre site in Rappahannock County, Virginia where this new house is located. Extensive site investigation, including erecting scaffolding at various locations, resulted in the placement of the house high on one of the hills, overlooking a meadow at the base of woodlands.  The house is organized as a series of volumes, arranged linearly and positioned to optimize distant views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Renovating a former school as community centre in Woesten, Belgium by atelier tom vanhee

Saturday, March 15th, 2014

Article source: atelier tom vanhee

The building is accessible by a central binding public domain, the playground of the former school (built in the 19th century). By opening some windows further down we reinforce the relationship between interior spaces and this square. By doing the same at the other site of the building, the back area is activated as a green semi-public space linked with the meeting hall. The closed functions, the storeroom, the technical areas and the sanitary facilities are grouped in a partially extended volume. It is a rejuvenation of the building, where the recent sanitair extension gave rise to.
