Designing a bank is always a delicate affair. On the one hand it is important to highlight the transparency and accessibility necessary to an institution that holds our money. On the other hand, it is always necessary to ensure a sense of security and robustness. The exterior of the building looks for that, the ground floor is transparent, easy to see through and access, the upper floors have less fenestrations and more solid construction.

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.

Building “image”, symbolic and copy, the project is in its form and purpose, to meet these requirements : the visitor should immediately understand the nature, the DNA, of the building. Emblematic bio climatic elements serve to the project and not the reverse.
They shape the project as well as the traditional components (wall, etc. roof). 3 requirements, 3 heights, 1 main entrance: it is the pragmatic application of the combined program bio climatic approach that guides the design of the project.

HIGHWAY REST STOPS 1-2, Rest Stops for the new Highway in Gori, Georgia
In 2009, the head of the Roads Department of Georgia commissioned J. MAYER H. to design a system of 20 rest stops for the new highway, a thoroughfare that will run through Georgia and serve as a connection between the Republic of Azerbaijan and the Republic of Turkey. Two first rest stops were completed in 2011 near Gori, a third in Lochini was finished 2012. The new rest stops are located on selected scenic viewpoints along the route and serve as activators for their area and neighboring cities, including not only nearby a gas stations and supermarket, but also a farmers market and a cultural space for local arts and crafts.

In 1989, Vestbo, a local housing cooperation acquired a stunning site 10 minutes north from Bergen.
The plot is up in the hillside and has spectacular views over the fjord leading into the Bergen harbor.
Vestbo developed most of the land before the year 2000, but one plot had been preserved due to a high power line above that went over it and made it uninhabitable due to electrical radiation, In 2008 the power company dismantled the power line and put it underground. Suddenly the possibility for a new housing development arose.

Located in an environment that lacked strong marks, the Metro Station 20 should be a signal, a structural element of the landscape, it must be at its scale. We have designed a structure that is both generous and sensual, with a glass volume curves embracing the ground and reaching the underground platform level by penetrating light and vegetation. The structure consists of 27 metal arches on a plot of 4,00 m, of variable height and width, starting from the rail level. The height varies between 19 and 24 m and the width between 17,80 m et 30 m. They are connected by a secondary structure of metal tubes that support the triangular glass panels. This structure also supports the road that enters into the glass volume and will form a bridge of 105 m length suspended from the metal structure. In its central part, this bridge will be slightly curved to give greater height above the access platform.

Located on a lot with a pronounced depth, in a residential area in the South of Timisoara, the house adheres to the street front, modestly following the example of the nearby buildings. The façade lines are simple and clear, leaving room for a rich inner life, connected to the natural elements and enlivened by coloured lights.

Klopf Architecture, Arterra Landscape Architects and Flegel’s Construction recently completed a beautiful and insightful remodel of a classic Eichler home that I think would be a perfect fit.
I know that this remodel of an iconic mid-century home would be a wonderful renovation feature, because the design team so sensitively addressed the needs of the homeowners and expanded on the original intent of the home.
