Cycling Center in Tiszafüred, Hungary by Ferdinand and Ferdinand Architects

Friday, May 5th, 2017

Article source: Ferdinand and Ferdinand Architects

10- 15 years ago the topic of mobility gained momentum in the Hungarian contemporary architecture. Many young architects realised that a major  task of the next generation of architects/enginiers and urban designes will be the redefinition and reshaping of the existing urban infrastructure.  Architecture and mobility will have implications not only on the traffic systems (means of traffic) of the 21st century, they will have impact on social spaces, public parks, as well.

False Bay Writer’s Cabin in Washington by Olson Kundig

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

Article source: Olson Kundig

This five-hundred-square-foot cabin serves as a private writer’s retreat and guest cottage. The owners asked for a space that felt connected to its island setting—the mild climate, scenic views, and proximity to wildlife. At the same time, they needed a structure that could be easily secured when not in use.

VanBerlo Ypenburg in The Netherlands by Blooey / Remko Verhaagen

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

Article source: Blooey / Remko Verhaagen

VanBerlo has set up their second office in the former Ypenburg air base. This building with a rich history underwent a massive renovation, and VanBerlo set out to find the perfect way to mix the building’s historic style with an iconic and contemporary interior. The result is a stylish and minimalistic atmosphere, surrounded by honest materials such as concrete, plywood and felt.

The building was designed by famous Dutch architects Jan Brinkman and Leendert van der Vlugt. Built in the 1930s, Ypenburg airport was clearly ahead of its time. A minimalistic example of Modern Architecture, a style that zeroed in on light, air and space.

IRON PORCH HOUSE in Nagykovácsi, Hungary by Földes és Társai Építésziroda

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

Article source:  Földes és Társai Építésziroda

The 726 sqm site, being reminiscent of a fairy glade, is located at the northern part of Nagykovácsi.  The garden surrounded by young fruit trees and pines on three sides has idyllic atmosphere. There are cottages, some new family homes and most of all green all around. The square site is slightly sloped to the street and wide enough for a long house to fit in between its borders.  These makings suggested that the fourth side of the garden should be closed by the house itself creating intimate atmosphere inside.

Public Library and Socio-Cultural Center in Aduanas, Spain by Singular Studio

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

Article source: Singular Studio

This building, conceived with a hybrid use of Public Library and Socio-Cultural Center, is located in the seaside neighborhood of Javea, near the port. This is the reason why, after a process of architectural approach, it has been inspired by reasons related to the sea … metal facade vibrates, has three dimensions and simulates movement, such as sea surface. The facade treatment, as a light metal skin that envelops the whole volume, aims to boost its weightlessness without touching the ground plane. It is a large box or floating cage, a huge metal fishing net as those in the nearby port.
