New Church of Våler in Hovedveien, Norway by CEBRA architecture

Sunday, April 1st, 2012

Article source: CEBRA architecture

Danish architects CEBRA’s proposal for a new church in Våler, Norway creates a symbolic landmark in the shape of a tilting cross using light and wood as key design elements for the interior.

The village of Våler, in the south eastern part of Norway, is in need of a new church in order to replace the village’s old wooden church, which burned down to the ground in 2009. The church is of great importance for the local community – both as a social gathering point and as characterizing landscape element. Therefore, the design of the new church has to combine a particular sensitivity and attention to the site’s culture-historical context with a modern architectural expression so as to succeed in creating flexible and contemporary church facilities.

This projection came to life when Mr. Lavance and Benjamin Hall drank a few brew’s at a local pub. Lavance expressed his desire to shad his outdoor BBQ / kitchen. A few napkin sketches later and a real enthusiasm for raw materials that weather and age over time due to the brutal desert sun bearing upon. The high arcing paroblolic steel arcs crest to allow seating behind the counter on the east, while converging to the west to screen the Arizona summer sun.

Spröjs Villa by Visiondivision

The Spröjs Villa is a modern style summer house for people with high architectonical taste. The building is based on the Spröjs modular system and can grow in length to any size requested. The house could be just 30 m2, being a small pavilion, to being a slick 200 m2 villa. The house modular system is on every façade as well as the roof. In its original design the spröjs serves as beds, kitchen tables, sofas as well as bath tubs or pretty much any use that can be fitted into the Spröjs grid. The house slim floor plan does so that you will never be more than two meters from the outside and its open facades creates a house that always are in close contact with the outside just as a summer villa should be.

The church in the small town of Våler in Norway burned down and a competition was held to build a new one. We joined the competition with the following entry. It is in the rural church that the people in a village is experiencing its most emotional moments; this is where the kids run out on the last day of school, it is here you get married and it is here you bid farewell to your loved ones.

Spröjs Cabin is a small 40 m2 summer house with a 20 m2 loft to host a normal family of a couple with two to three kids. Although it is fairly small the house includes a kitchen, a living room, a medium sized bathroom and an extra room plus a sleeping loft.

Starbucks Coffee at Dazaifu Tenmangu Omotesando in Fukuoka Prefecture by Kengo Kuma & Associates (designed with Rhino, Grasshopper, and 3dS Max)

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Article source: Kengo Kuma & Associates

Location of this Starbucks is somehow characteristic, as it stands on the main approach to the Dazaifu Tenmangu, one of the most major shrines in Japan. Established in 919 A.D., the shrine has been worshiped as “the God for Examination,” and receives about 2 million visitors a year who wish their success. Along the main path to the shrine, there are traditional Japanese buildings in one or two stories. The project aimed to make a structure that harmonizes with such townscape, using a unique system of weaving thin woods diagonally.
