Magnum Gallery in PARIS, France by Birds Portchmouth Russum

Article source: Birds Portchmouth Russum

Working in collaboration with architect Chris Stead of Paris, BPR designed a gallery, cafe and office for the Magnum Photography agency.

Three architectural moves are key in turning this former hotel ballroom into an integrated set of spaces. A portion of the ground floor concrete slab is cut away, a bridge spanned across it, and a cafe ‘trailer’ inserted into the front facade. The front of the trailer pushes through to the street, defining the entrance and helping to project the identity of the gallery.

Lodge on the Lake in Canberra, Australia by Stephen Collier Architects

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

Article source: Stephen Collier Architects

THE LAKE ON THE LODGE IDEAS COMPETITION – EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

What if the British, instead of completely and summarily dismissing Aboriginal people and their culture, took a more open approach to Aboriginal people, culture and knowledge systems? This country would be one where the chances of an indigenous or non-indigenous Prime Minister would have been the same at every election since Federation. As a result Australia would now have an equal meeting of cultures and (cultural) influence.

House of Shiroyama in kanagawa prefecture, japan by araki sasaki architects

Sunday, June 9th, 2013

Article source:  araki sasaki architects

Charred wooden planks wrap the exterior of the ‘House in Shiroyama’ by Japanese practice Araki + Sasaki architects (A+Sa), differentiating
it from its neighbors in the suburban area. The two-story wood-frame construction takes on the shape of a regular square, characterized on
the inside by the exposed natural plywood textures and surfaces and open spaces that expose the true scale of the structure from the social
areas on the ground floor.  The pitched roof gently rises on each side equally until reaching a square skylight that forms a structural ring 
allowing natural light to illuminate the entire interior.  The construction was approached from a DIY technique, using standard member sizes
and connections to allow for easy future expansion and a rational structural grid. The knots of the plywood filled and polished with epoxy resin. The ground level contains the kitchen and dining areas
on an elevated wooden platform, with a private bathroom and bedroom. The wooden beams that hold up the loft level floorboards are
left uncovered allowing a direct visual connection. A staircase at the entrance connects to the partial second story that can be used as a
living or working space.

Located in the northern Dutch town of Den Helder, the project occupies a long site between two canals, the Helderskanaal and Werfkanaal where it looks out onto Den Helder’s fine Napoleonic naval yard. West 8’s masterplan for the scheme reflected the character, scale and diversity of the city fabric along each canal and provided for a range of size and cost of dwellings.

De Jacobsvlinder School in Zoetermeer, the Netherlands by Paul de Vroom Architecten

Wednesday, April 24th, 2013

Article source: Paul de Vroom Architecten

De Jacobsvlinder (Cinnabar) School, previously known as the Prins Bernhard School, is a part of the restructuring of the Palenstein neighbourhood, a quarter of Zoetermeer near the centre, built in the nineteen-sixties. Architecturally, the new school building forms the link between the urbanity of the Nieuw-Schoutenhoek housing complex currently under construction, and the small-scale character of the existing village of detached houses that directly adjoins the location.

Article source: Uchida Architect Design Office

BROWNIE is a bakery shop and a house, located inside Aso Kuju National park where it is blessed with its rich nature. From the start of the design process, corresponding to the client’s bold belief on bread making using natural, organic, and non-addictive materials, “nature” was strongly intended in the design of this building.

Re-think Athens in Athens, Greece by PROJ3CT

Sunday, April 21st, 2013

Article source: PROJ3CT

Acknowledging the great value of the cultural and architectural heritage that is present all over the site, overlapping time and space in such a meaningful presence, our quest is to create a quiet and cohesive urban environment that would not be over-imposing or disruptive but one that attempts to unify and add structure to the physical frame. From a distance this central zone is very clearly dominated by three major public spaces – the trilogy Syntagma/Panepistimiou Core/Omonia that are linked by a system of large avenues on which Panepistimiou has the greater role. It seems natural that these places should be considered poles of centrality, as they are focus points of historical relevance. Although these spaces are very diverged in terms of functionality and shape, it seems obvious that they are within themselves places of gathering on which all the flows and social expressions are related to.

HOUSE House in Richmond, Australia by Andrew Maynard Architects

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

Article source: Andrew Maynard Architects

These neighboring terrace homes are owned by two generations of one family. Both houses were in need of repair and update. HOUSE House is a single building that extends both homes. They are separate homes within one architecture. The new structure runs north/south while the original houses run east/west. The fence between each terrace slides away to create one large backyard.

Vent Vert by Edward Suzuki Associates Inc

Thursday, March 28th, 2013

Article source: Edward Suzuki Associates Inc

VENT VERT is Green Wind in French. As the name suggests, the thrust of the design was to add a new spirit of green to not only the new building but also the surrounding commercial environment. The building sits near the end of a busy shopping street called Azabu Juban where green is rather scarce. For this reason, the green façade was employed as an eye-catcher especially in light of the fact that the building stands at the corner of a bend in the street and highly visible from afar on the approach road.
