Birch Road Off-the Grid House in Crestone, Colorado by David Jay Weiner, Architect, P.C.

Friday, September 22nd, 2017

Article source: David Jay Weiner, Architect, P.C. 

Designed for a couple as a weekend house and eventual retirement home, this house sits in the high desert of the San Luis Valley (elev. +8,500 ft.) with exceptional views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and the Great Sand Dunes National Monument to the Southeast.  The area is known for its serenity and environmental uniqueness.  The house has been designed to not only respond to that environment, but also to take advantage of the unique spirituality of the site.

Beautiful House in London, England by Nacho Gias Studio with Tomas Gruber

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

Article source: Nacho Gias Studio with Tomas Gruber 

Ma mama, A qui li rifrega Delacroix?! (But mum, who cares about Delacroix?!)

That was the question thrown by a child to his mum while I was waiting on a huge line for the Louvre Museum, in Paris. It made me smile until I realized that the child’s premise was full of truth, it kept a reality that we forget so often.

OPEN SANDNES City Hall in Norway by KAMJZ

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

Article source: KAMJZ

Enhancing Public Participation

The base for the design was the desire to create a free unrestricted access to knowledge and information, as well as a collaborative and cooperative management and decision making process with emphasis on the right to see the operations and activities of government at work. This supports government accountability and helps protect other necessary rights. The new City Hall of Sandnes would celebrate the concept of openness and transparency. Designed as a welcoming house which is as accessible as possible to it’s citizens and a building that lives up to the highest requirements for a modern, efficient and flexible office space. The volume required by the program would be adapted to the local urban conditions and modified to create connections with the surrounding area and bring the inhabitants closer to the city officials and their decision making process in the spirit of true participation. With all the office spaces continuously facing the streets a courtyard is created which would be the central area of the whole Havneparken masterplan. Walking and biking, crisscrossing from the streets, would be encouraged to reach the water promenade, creating a vibrant district for pedestrians and cyclists. The importance of the building in the area would be emphasized by it’s architectural exterior design where past tradition would be commemorated with a modern dynamic and universal outlook.

The coating of the bench and stools with visible nails, refer to a dimension of the textile material, which seems sewn on the back support.

Article source: AP Architetos 

AP Arquitetos was founded in 2010 and seeks to establish a contemporary architectural language, experimental and still focused on local and historical values. We understand architecture much more as a methodological process in which several professionals act together. With this vision we can reach new ideas and concepts that can be applied in a practical way and with a high degree of innovation and experimentalism. Our process works each project in a unique way, that is, with a “tailoring” thought. The firm has projects in several Brazilian cities besides Peru, Italy and the USA.

King solomon elementary school in Israel by Shoshani Architects

Sunday, September 17th, 2017

Article source: Shoshani Architects

The King Solomon School is a Jewish, bilingual and International school in the center of Israel. It promotes holistic education.

The design concept is based on the wish to translate the pedagogical – philosophical idea of the holistic education to an exciting learning experience.

The Star of David symbol was the formal inspiration for the design. The inner shape- created from the intersection of the two triangles- is a hexagon, a shape with universal values.

The library space is attractive to children that would constantly refresh and continue to captivate their interest in books, in reading and in learning, Image Courtesy © Tal Nisim
