House 784 in Cheshire, UK by Stephenson ISA STUDIO

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

Article source: Stephenson ISA STUDIO

The house is sited on a tree lined suburban road in Cheshire and was designed for a young family couple. On the road, the house types are suburban; conservative, bland and mock traditional. Our approach was to create a fresh contemporary version of the suburban house type; one that reacts to its context and is tailored to suit the specific needs of the client.

Article source: ALA ARCHITECTS

Käännös’ grows from the dynamic between the site and the goals of the library program. The interplay between the building’s three individual floors is the key concept of the entry. The public plaza in front of the building will continue inside, merging with a catalogue of meeting and experience features. The ground floor will be a robust, busy and frequently updated space suitable for quick visits and walkthroughs. The active, zero-threshold public spaces will be visible, attractive, understandable and welcoming to all visitors.

Taichung City Cultural Center Competition Entry in Taiwan by Williamson Architects

Saturday, July 6th, 2013

Article source: Williamson Architects

DESIGN STATEMENT
“The primary space is, by default, the plaza space defined by the awe of the water walls.
There is however no sub-ordinate space. All have their peculiar qualities.
All are challenging the accepted norm, contradicting pre-conceived and naturally occurring ideas of structure.
This built form is only the start of the adventure.” Brad Williamson (Architect)

Pellegari in St Pierre du Mont, France by Agence Bernard Bühler

Saturday, July 6th, 2013

Article source: Agence Bernard Bühler

You might say there was nothing original about an estate made up of small timber-clad houses in the heart of the Landes. And yet the road that leads to it is strewn with fragments of the so-called “built environment”:unfinished estates that seem to begin and end nowhere, streets that are too wide, roundabouts, and low-lying houses whose walls are rendered in colours that beggar definition.
