Colegio Villa El Sol in El Bosque, Chile by GUBBINS ARQUITECTOS

Friday, September 27th, 2013


The project is located on a site with a special feature; it is 25 meters wide and 100 meters deep, which allows us to develop a 4-storey building occupying almost the entire ground surface. This gives the project a protagonist scale in the neighborhood.

The strategy to not “keep” the dimensions of the property (pre-existing length and width), was to organize the program of the school within a large regular volume, based on a double bay corridor, alternating classrooms and playgrounds in different levels and on both sides of the central circulation. This allowed us to open cross perspectives on the site, with views of the mountains and the sunset.

This classic modern house is designed around a number of mature trees, in a park-like setting. The house is designed as a collection of blocks linked by a flat-roofed element, housing the entry and gallery. The gallery space leads you past an interior courtyard and pool and on to the main living area, where a strong connection to the garden is maintained via large glass sliders on both sides.

The Boathouse in Haddal

The start of summer 2012 was very different for 21 architecture students from NTNU. Instead of going home on vacation, they travelled to a small village in Sunnmøre. Here they were to realize their first building, a unique boathouse situated between the fjord, the mountains and the sea. The project was organized and designed by six of the students, all in their 2nd year, at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. It all began back in January, when the students travelled to Haddal to get to know the site and the client.

VIGOSS Textile – Showroom and Design Office in Istanbul, Turkey by Zemberek Design Office

Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013

Article source: Zemberek Design Office

By reason of cooperation between two major textile companies, the necessity  of a new design office with additional showroom for guest designer team is revealed in existing manufacturing building of the host company. Approach of the architectural team, according to the demand was,  creating a perception of “non-belonging” in the space, to highlight the difference between existing function and the new one, also maintaining the balance, between; using the attractive and colorful interior workspace as a showcase, and preserving the privacy of the designers. Another demand  that shapes the concept was  a multi-functional area which serves as a design office and a showroom.

Architectural team aimed to meet all demands with a single shell.
