Castle Winery in Palencia, Spain by Moral Arquitectura

Monday, December 17th, 2012

Article source: Moral Arquitectura

The time is who builds this one
A lost place, a real place.
There is a Way that is always open
It is a family work, a personal option, a life story
This Project belongs to ground
Only the hand transformed the inside of the hill
The ancient gallery was already there. It was always there
This project thinks about how to define a sensations sequence
A mouth that swallows you and takes you to its entrails
The dryness of the place, the crudeness of the stations transform into rugosity. Day by day…
There was no exact plan. It was an intuitive work. It was a hard process. It was an experimental labor.
A heavy, firm, deep… matter that was marked by pressure, by the weather and by the…time

Babenberger Passage in Vienna, Austria by Soehne & Partner Architekten

Friday, December 14th, 2012

Article source: Soehne & Partner Architekten

The bold idea to revive a former pedestrian underpass which was lined by abandoned shops and once connected Babenberger Straße and Burggarten was rewarded by a venturesome client who was seeking an extraordinary place for a new club. From street level, only four descending glass staircases are visible. Three of them were recycled into lighting sculptures featuring large opaque light cylinders.

The San Bernardo Cultural Centre is located in a rural town, on a small plot with a basically square ground plan, fifteen metres per side. The programme for the Centre includes an assembly hall, which is to operate as a multipurpose space for holding conferences, exhibitions and performances, and three workshops, also seen as highly versatile spaces that can operate as classrooms, meeting rooms or as a small library, depending of the needs of each moment.

Aqualux Therme Fohnsdorf in Styria, Austria by Architekten Titus Walter Pernthaler ZT GmbH

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

Article source: Architekten Titus Walter Pernthaler ZT GmbH

The history of Fohnsdorf as a coal mining town serves as the inspirational starting point for the design of the thermal bath. The building is situated as a monolithic block seemingly growing out of the existing topography by analogy with the characteristical form of a coal seam.

Water at-traction in Paris, France by bureau faceB

New structure for new uses : a pedestrian bridge to stroll along the water

It’s in the heart of the city. One of its major attraction. However, you can barely feel it. Maybe on a boat, a little bit on bridges, anyway without intimacy. On the contrary La Seine has to be seen as an out of time place, telling you stories and History. A link through time and space: the water attraction.

Police Station and Multipurpose Space in Xixona, Spain by Daniel Martí i Pérez & Natàlia Ferrer Bernabeu

Monday, December 10th, 2012

Article source: Daniel Martí i Pérez & Natàlia Ferrer Bernabeu

The space requirement program requested by the developer (Townhall) included all the departments, public and restricted use, necessary for the proper operation of a facility of this nature. In the office we thought to incorporate a public space which could be used by the neighborhood as a multipurpose space that would allow us to provide greater flexibility to the building.

Container Hotel in Crimea, Ukraine by ZA Architects

Sunday, December 9th, 2012

Article source: ZA Architects

The main idea of the project is to create a flexible and multi-purpose solution for small and medium-sized hotel business. Here we suggest a modular structrure which can be easily  implemeted throughout Ukraine. If some changes in the insulation parameteres of certain details and in the layout of the hall should be made, this design can be realized in  other climates as well. In terms of structure, the hotel represents a construction kit on the basis of pre-fabricated units, such as “Containex”, which have the dimensions and technical specifications of maritime shipping containers.

Solar Carve Tower in New York, USA by Studio Gang Architects

Saturday, December 8th, 2012

Article source: Studio Gang Architects

Our Solar Carve Tower employs a surprising twist to traditional zoning logic. Designed for a site that borders the High Line on the east with the vast openness of Tenth Avenue, the Lincoln Highway, and the Hudson River to the west, the project proposes inverting the light and air setbacks from the already well-exposed street to the High Line, in order to prioritize the inner-block park.
