Extension Of Orientation School in Kerzers, Switzerland by Morscher Architekten BSA SIA AG

Wednesday, August 19th, 2015

Article source:  Morscher  Architekten BSA SIA AG 

The school’s extension responds clearly and confidently to the large neighbouring buildings. A new entrance gives onto a spacious multi-storey hall. The group rooms are stacked one atop the other and can be read as simple boxes in the airspace, resulting in interesting sightlines. The administrative and special use rooms are located on both the lower level and ground floor, while the upper storeys hold the classrooms. The building is constructed of natural, robust materials that already have a lovely patina and are able to withstand a high degree of wear. The façade and some corridor areas are made of concrete. The classroom walls are lined with acoustic panels that double as bulletin boards. The ceiling has been left raw and can be used for heat storage. With this extension of the school’s classroom tract, a compact building has been created with short routes and an interesting central area suitable for a variety of uses.

“DETACHED HOUSE IN DROSIA”, in ATHENS, Greece by Katerina Valsamaki

Sunday, July 26th, 2015

Article source:  Katerina Valsamaki

The 580sqm detached house is organized in the form of an L shape inside the oblong site and accommodates a four member family. The integration of the residence into a semi-urban environment is dealt with as a scenario of revelation and dissimulation between private, public and semi-public space; that is to say creating a fluidity of the limits between the living spaces and the public spaces of the building, without however underestimating the importance of privacy. The garden is the focal point of the residence.

1.8M Width House in Tokyo, Japan by YUUA Architects and Associates

Thursday, July 23rd, 2015

Article source: YUUA Architects and Associates

A house where light shines in and fresh air flows between the floating floors.

The size of the property is approximately width 2.5m and depth 11m.  This small and narrow piece of land is a typical “eels’ bed” site, where one can reach his/her arm from left wall to right wall even though buildings stand very tight and compact next to one another.  We have tried to reserve as much space as possible as well as to provide psychological openness for the resident.  The house has been designed to follow the concept “A house with playfulness where people and cats live happily”.

Artist Studio/Residence in Woodstock, New York by Gans studio

Friday, July 3rd, 2015

Article source: Gans studio

The studio residence is a free-standing building that completes an ensemble of experience and use in relation to a pre-existing house and a landscape. The new building contains a small drawing studio, workroom and kiln tucked beneath a library and a bedroom suite that overlook a double height sculpture space. It connects to the pre-existing house via two bridges: an upper bridge that extends from the living room to a new roof garden floating before the Catskills; and a lower bridge that ties the studio back into the hillside.

ORIGAMI ark in Himeji, Japan by Matsuya Art Works

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

Article source: Matsuya Art Works

This showroom is built to sustain the tanners in the leather manufacturing business, which is local traditional industry in Himeji City, a suburban city in Japan. The showroom highlights the enormous range of leather materials that makes the clients strength and meets his wish to communicate and show the diversity of his products. This specificity leads us to focus on the interior design that allows us to better display the project rather than the exterior shape of the building. The request was to display over 3000 leather items in a very narrow exhibition space limited to 300 m². In order to respond to this range, a second and third floor must be built, however separating the display into several floors might not leave the wanted impression of the huge diversity of leather products offered by the house. Therefore, the Idea was to build an enormous three-dimensional fixture in a single exhibition room. A huge frame was built in shape of a jungle gym using 100x100mm² square steel pipes, creating a three dimensional display fixture. The Grand dimensions of this fixture creates in the visitors mind an impressive understanding of the overwhelming range of products with a single glance. Moreover, leaving more space to move freely provides an experience similar to exploring a jungle gym inside making the discovery of the leather materials’ variety more exciting.

Pfarré lighting design studio in Munich, Germany

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015

Article source: Pfarré lighting design studio

Project

The former store for antique luminaires im Munich‘s Alt-Schwabing district provided an ideal L-shaped ground plan for the workplaces and other areas of the new studio. All main technical features, such as print/copy, large-format printer, coffee, server, etc. are hidden behind a new space divider, which also houses the product library, and consumable supplies. With this divider, a generous space between divider and the shop windows has been created for meetings and presentations. Thanks to the digitalization of the working process and archives, the size of the studio remained the same as before. However, 5 desks have been reduced in size. A 8 m long shelve unit provides space to work and store, below a pinboard with the same length. At the former studio site out of town PLD is still equipped with a lavish archive and further space for testing, mock-ups, and models.
