The design brief for this Berlin flat renovation, in the district of Moabit, not only included the challenge of sensitively updating an Altbau (early 1900’s), but included the added element of its charming small size – measuring just 21sqm.
Like many buildings of its era, the original layout of the flat had been two very small but separate rooms, presumably one of them being a kitchen, with a shared toilet located in an outbuilding downstairs. In an effort to modernise the flat a previous owner had substituted the former kitchen with a more convenient private bathroom. This had the added effect of unbalancing the overall proportions of living/sleeping/cooking/washing space in the flat.

The building is located within a manufacturing plant, in that context; it situates a testing laboratory and an exhibition space.
The design seeks to establish an emphasis between the new construction and the existing facilities. The result is a solid and sleek object that distinguishes from its spatial context by the use of a dynamic geometry.

The Bean Buro Architects studio in Hong Kong takes a fresh approach to small work place design in a high density city. While being space efficient, the material palette is homey and relaxed, to contribute to the studio’s friendly approach to the workplace. This in turn allows for staff to be more productive and engage with each other in a collaborative manner.

Architectural Studio Sboev3 Architect shared with us the project cottage «Roman-house», which will be built on a plot of land near St. Petersburg. In this house will be to live a family of 4-eh man.
Compositional techniques and concept forms used in the design process are not something new and special, because They are widely distributed in the architecture of individual dwellings European masters. Therefore, the main objective in the design process was the creation of a kind of compromise in the context of the ordinary, traditional building of cottage settlement.

The site for this project is a remote, private lake beside which for more than seventy years existed a family’s cottage. When the land passed from mother to son, the decision was made to reinvigorate the home; ultimately, because the home had already reached such an advanced state of decay, it was decided to have it removed and to build a new cottage. For sentimental reasons, the new home was to be the exact dimensions of the former and it was to sit in the exact same location. Aside from those requirements though, a far more open spatial arrangement was desired. The cottage was only intended for three-season use (the Manhattan couple for whom this was being built intended to spend winters in warmer climates). The house design was simplified because significant insulation was not required, however, construction intentions were complicated by the fact that the remote location meant that the cost of labor “commuting” from the city would be extremely costly.

ELEMENTARY AND PRIMARY SCHOOL IN OPEN LANDSCAPE | OPEN CALL ORGANISED BY THE FLEMISH GOVERNMENT ARCHITECT, 2nd LAUREATE
The historical permanent presence of the polder landscape is experienced as a quality of the site that is to be protected, and it is also used as a source of design choices. The typology of the school buildings is designed analogous to that of the polder farms as solitary volumes in the landscape. The outdoor space is structured as a landscape similar to the diverse and flexible patchwork of different fields in the polder.
