Renovating a former school as community centre in Woesten, Belgium by atelier tom vanhee

Saturday, March 15th, 2014

Article source: atelier tom vanhee

The building is accessible by a central binding public domain, the playground of the former school (built in the 19th century). By opening some windows further down we reinforce the relationship between interior spaces and this square. By doing the same at the other site of the building, the back area is activated as a green semi-public space linked with the meeting hall. The closed functions, the storeroom, the technical areas and the sanitary facilities are grouped in a partially extended volume. It is a rejuvenation of the building, where the recent sanitair extension gave rise to.

Monique Corriveau-Library in 1100 route de l’Église, Québec by Dan Hanganu + Côté Leahy Cardas architects

Saturday, March 15th, 2014

Article source: Dan Hanganu + Côté Leahy Cardas architects

The Monique-Corriveau Library, housed in the Saint-Denys-du-Plateau church, is an exception, and in a rather unusual way. It is a tribute to the career—exceptional for her time—of the Quebec writer whose name it honours. This mother of 10 children, to each of whom she dedicated a book, was the author of numerous children’s books and winner of several literary awards.

Alkhozama Desert House in Riyadh Desert, Saudi Arabia by Ark-Kassam Architects

Saturday, March 15th, 2014

Article source: Ark-Kassam Architects

Ark-Kassam Architects have created a contemporary residence design concept which is to be allocated on a knoll in the middle of a private Oasis palm, Al-Riyadh Desert.

Three Masses are forming the design of the house and defining the entry lobby with the Arcade courtyard and the interior garden. These volumes are the Service Mass, Living Mass with sunset view and Night Mass with sunrise view. All masses were organized in order to provide the needed shade for one another, creating the different atmospheric scales in between the indoor and the outdoor space protecting the house from extreme weather conditions.
