Zig Zag in Nieuwveen, Netherlands by Möhn + Bouman Architecten

Friday, October 2nd, 2015

Article source: Möhn + Bouman Architecten 

This two-storey, 110-meter long residential centre for people with mental disabilities has been designed in close conjunction with an existing tree structure. The resulting zig-zag- shape visually divides the building in smaller, human-scale areas, thus avoiding the perception of an institution. Slowly rising between the trees, a structure of wooden boardwalks accesses the dwellings on the first floor, providing it with a secondary landscape with a unique quality of its own. Every-group dwelling has its own entrance, with integrated sitting benches marking the transition between outside and inside. They are inviting residents to linger and interact with others, as do the retreating zones inside, featuring moos-clad floors and birch trunks.

SOLO WEST Lobby in Phoenix, Arizona by Ippolito Fleitz Group GmbH

Thursday, October 1st, 2015

Article source: Ippolito Fleitz Group GmbH 

SOLOWEST

This ten-storey office building opened at the beginning of the 1990s as the‘Lahmeyer-Haus’. Like many buildings from that time, the increasingly sophisticated demands of tenants and Frankfurt’soversaturated business real estate market quickly rendered the building no longer competitive. It stood empty for many years until project developer Phoenix Real Estate recognised its attractive position in Frankfurt’s Westend and decided to completely gut and revitalise the building. Since Phoenix itself rents office space in the building for its Frankfurt branch, the brief was simple: “to build the best house in the respective market segment”. Our studio was commissioned to design the entrance lobby and the access and supply coresfor all storeys, as well as interior architecture for two rented offices.

House Seali in Capellle a/d Ijssel, The Netherlands by JagerJanssen architects BNA

Friday, September 4th, 2015

Article source: JagerJanssen architects BNA 

The shape of this single family house was directly derived from its context.

Towards the backyard the width of the plot reduces, and so does the floorplan. Slope and direction of the ridge of the roof were modeled by carefully looking at the adjacent houses.

Home between Earth and Sky-Passive House with Sundial in Heguri, Japan by Kikuma Watanabe

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015

Article source: Kikuma Watanabe

This home in Japan is passive house in where a sundial is set. By adapting the passive system the internal spaces support a comfortable environment where in summer it is naturally cool and in the winter it is warm. This ecological technology aids this passive system using the sun and the wind for an effective air conditioner.

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.
