Villa B in Blankenheim, Germany by Schneider+Schumacher

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Article source: Schneider+Schumacher

In 2010, an architectural and landscape limited competition was launched by the municipality of Blankenheim, together with the Regionale 2010 Agentur. It resulted in schneider+schumacher winning first prize with their finely judged answer to the competition brief. This asked for suggestions as to how the former Roman manor – the Villa Rustica – might once again be made visible to the public. Taking up this challenge as their point of departure, the architects have now enhanced the Eifel region with a decidedly sculptural, walk-in installation.

Casa N/S in Bergamo, Italy by dep studio – architettura e design

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Article source: dep studio – architettura e design

Casa N/S lies in the immediate vicinity of the old town of a village in the province of Bergamo. The plot is located in an area characterized by buildings without any great architectonic value, something that has made the architects decide to distinguish the building from its surroundings. The customer’s desire to build a home to leave to his children in the future has led to the realization of a building with two identical and independent units that share a number of facilities, as the tavern, the cellars, the garage and the garden.

Barn Studio in Orient, New York by studio a/b architects

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013

Article source: studio a/b architects

In a historic waterfront village on the North Folk of Long Island, this six-stall barn/garage sits on a property line facing an alley. A shed stands behind the barn. The rustic appearance of the two buildings, standing side-by-side, is part of the character of the village. Adopting the appearance as they sit together, the design inserts two box-spaces, a “Semi-enclosed patio” and a “Boxed Light”.

An Orifice Taking a Breath of Fresh Air in by Simone de Gale Architects

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

Article source: Simone de Gale Architects

This project utilized the fragmentation of a community to rebuild ties through a social cohesion of colour, light and space. An event took place for one day with colourful fabric draped from the windows of the residential maisonettes above ground floor down to the ground floor units, dynamically and aesthetically changing the space with community engagement. The installation illustrated the effect architecture can have in place.

Unravelling Geometry in London by Simone de Gale Architects

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

Article source: Simone de Gale Architects

This project demonstrated the transition of space over a period of 30 years within the area of London Fields to Liverpool Street from a disused rough and un-inhabitable area into a well defined architectural establishment.

Fine plaster formed a conceptual arch representing the adhoc and then planned architectural proposals; an unwound timber section represented time. Entwining the two brought the concept together.

CB30 in Mexico City, Mexico by Dellekamp Arquitectos

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

Article source: Dellekamp Arquitectos

This building has 3 apartments looking unto the street as well as a 2 stories house in the back that lives to an interior patio. Due to the different needs of each client, the apartments have different floor plans. However the public areas concentrate in the front allowing it to become one single space, creating continuity with the exterior. There is a spectacular tree in front of the building, which became an object of design for the interior, as well as for the façade. By working with structural geometry, we managed to support the 15mt span with no columns that would obstruct the view to the exterior; we then sharpened the floor slabs and walls to the minimum, disappearing their edges in the façade.
