Monmouth Battlefield State Park Visitor Center in Manalapan, New Jersey by ikon.5 architects

Monday, January 11th, 2016

Article source: ikon.5 architects

Monmouth Battlefield State Park Visitor Center is a portal and orientation to a historic battlefield that figured prominently in the American Revolutionary War.  The building replaces an underutilized structure built for the Bicentennial with a more open pavilion that places primacy on the landscape of the battlefield as an important artifact.   Through its siting and generous use of large expanses of glass, the pavilion dramatically changes the visitor experience and frames views of the battlefield that were previously obscured.  Sited at the top of Combs Hill overlooking the Battlefield, the pavilion is conceived as a modern day primitive hut, templar in its siting, but diminutive in its appearance. Like a floating cloud above the summit, the visitor center is a one story structure that creates a cantilevered roof solar shade that frames views and protects the exhibits from the sun. In addition to the solar shade, the design incorporates a number of sustainable features in achieving a LEED Gold certification. The majority of the exterior of the enclosure is triple glazed low-e laminated glazing units permitting the maximum views, but minimizing heat gain and lost. The new visitor center occurs within the bounds of the existing site and land is not additionally disturbed to commence with this project. The new visitor center and renovated portions of the existing building is heated and cooled with a geo-thermal system. Rain water is collected on the roof and is channeled into a rain garden feature at the entry to the visitor center. Natural grasses and flora are planted adjacent to the structure to minimize maintenance and to encourage indigenous birds and reptiles to live on top of Combs Hill again.

Villa Marichulegui in San Sebastián, Spain by Estudio Beldarrain

Monday, January 11th, 2016

Article source: Estudio Beldarrain

The good orientation and the view across the city of San Sebastian make Marichulegui villa a privileged place to live.

The house places, almost instinctively, the main spaces oriented diagonally looking for the sights to the Concha bay which are encased between two neighbour villages. To place the maximum possible number of spaces whit this condition, leads to group, apparently in a disordered way, tightening in the narrow front of the plot, as if they were the heads of a children group that who want to look through a little window at the same time. So, the interior space keeping its fluid and unitary condition, creates various areas where the nearest references disappeared in favour of the far sight.

The concept for the Lappeenranta City Theatre is exceptional: the theater has been built on the top floor of a shopping center. The idea, however, is ancient as this is theater coming back to its roots, back to the marketplace, back to the people. Millions of people visiting the shopping center annually will be able to enjoy a variety of plays, while the restaurants cater for intermissions and the hotel offers accommodation.
