Villa Arkö in Arkösund, Sweden by Marge Arkitekter AB

Saturday, May 9th, 2015

Article source: Marge Arkitekter AB

Villa Arkö is a summer house situated on an island in the archipelago of Norrköping that will also have the possibility to house the family over Christmas and fall vacations. A steep slant towards south east with a marvelous view is the benchmark for the placement and the form of the villa. The house contains of an archetypical basic shape with a high-pitched roof completely covered in cedar wood which over time will get a silver grey color and interact with the surrounding cliff landscape.  A glassed lower volume with sedum roofing and terraces is added on and is thereby creating a building which is following the decrease of the slant.  The in-between spaces of the volumes creates out-door spaces in different cardinal directions, on different levels, with and without roofs. Sliding sun shields (with inbuilt mosquito net for the bed rooms) can cover in and protect the house from weather and wind.

Autobahn Church in Siegerland, Wilnsdorf by schneider+schumacher

Tuesday, January 27th, 2015

Article source: schneider+schumacher

In March 2009 schneider+schumacher won a competition run by the Förderverein Autobahnkirche Siegerland e.V, which was founded for the specific purpose of establishing an Autobahn church.

The initiative for this project came from Hanneliese and Hartmut Hering, after having visited an Autobahn church in south Germany. Just one glance at the map revealed that a place like this was lacking in the entire Siegerland area, and consequently also along the very busy A 45.

The New Generation Youth and Community Centre in Wells Park, Lewisham, London by RCKa

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

Article source: RCKa

RCKa played a key role in the genesis of the project, having identified the full extent of local authority site ownership and the opportunity to replace a structurally unsound facility with one wholly aligned with emerging youth provision policy.

The practice also identified the capital funding stream (having worked on the part-funded OPEN youth venue in Norwich), and were instrumental in the preparation of a funding bid to the government’s MyPlace scheme, which was subsequently selected from over 240 competing bids.
