Mountain View Double Gable Eichler Remodel in California by Klopf Architecture

Saturday, January 14th, 2017

Article source: Klopf Architecture

Klopf Architecture, Outer Space Landscape Architects, Sezen & Moon Structural Engineer and Flegels Construction updated a classic Eichler open, indoor-outdoor home.

Everyone loved the classic, original bones of this house, but it was in need of a major facelift both inside and out. The owners also wanted to remove the barriers between the kitchen and great room, and increase the size of the master bathroom as well as make other layout changes. No addition to the house was contemplated.

Kindergarten in Koblenz, Germany by Herrmanns-Architekten

Friday, January 13th, 2017

Article source: Herrmanns-Architekten 

Explanations about the construction of a kindergarten in Lahnstein

The curved building for a new kindergarten is to be erected as a wooden structure with a formwork of vertical wood panels. The intention of the architects is that the new  building is self-consciously integrated into the urban environment.

Especially when building for children, other aspects than usual have to be incorporated into the design process. Who says that a building must inevitably always be designed with the rigid cartesian axes (height / width / depth) as a crate. This is the dynamic structure of the organic building with its curved ground plan for breaking open the rigid geometric shapes.

145 housing units + FAM + PMI in Paris, France by Avenier Cornejo Architectes

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

Article source: Avenier Cornejo Architectes

Jumps of scale to understand the place

The site is integrated into the multi-urban network of Paris, the Grande Couronne and major green spaces and infrastructure networks. The ZAC Clichy-Batignolles is perceived as a new landscape of connection, a wide-open urban door along the major territorial arches towards the historic city.

The site becomes an important urban platform, an exchange node inserted into the system of great Parisian relational spaces. It holds a role of transition between different scales, them being territorial, urban, environmental, social, cultural, and infrastructure standpoints. The ZAC thus acts as a device of resonance and multi-district transfer.

Scenario’s House in London, England by Scenario Architecture

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

Article source: Scenario Architecture

This house was a chance to be our own clients. It was purchased with the intention of completely renovating, extending and adapting it to the scenarios of our own family life. It presented us with the opportunity to ‘practice what we preach’ to its fullest expression and create the scenario house. The main design challenge was finding a way of connecting the front part of the house, which originally had two separate Victorian reception rooms with the basement level, a full floor height below, both physically and visually, in order to create a sense of single and connected open living and kitchen spaces.

Shifter in Saguramo, Georgia by Stipfold

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

Article source: Stipfold

The hillside house for a large family is gracefully flattened out on the landscape. The facade is simultaneously minimalistic and massive, marking the building’s modest and strong presence in nature. The multilayered open space in the backside of the house brings an inevitable sense of unexpectedness. The terraces in the garden with lounge areas and The playground carry a cosy vibe.
