Friday, July 15th, 2016

Article source: Pinearq

The program’s density, the area of the plot of land and  the  allowed construction  requires to  resolve the project within a compact shape building that occupies the entire surface of the plot of land.

The proposal takes this location into account as a starting point, coming up with a compact volume, which, however, has been perforated by a series of patios where vegetation climbs high achieving a good quality space and well lit building.

Librairie Avant-Garde, Ruralation Library in Zhejiang Province, China by AZL Architects

Friday, July 15th, 2016

Article source: AZL Architects

Located in Daijiashan Village,Eshan She Nationality Township of Tonglu, Zhejiang Province, the Avant-Garde Ruralation Library is the 11th Bookstore run by the Librairie Avant-Garde. With the culture-spreading idea ——Avant-Garde and Library, as well as the unique regional natural and human landscape of the ‘Shes’ village, this project has become the public life bond among local villagers and alien readers, and also become a a focal point of local cultural and creative industries. The main body of the library was an idle yard lying at one side of the village’s main street, including two yellow mud adobe houses and a platform projecting from a slope. While maintaining the structural and spatial sequence of the buildings and courtyards, the architectural design restores the current declined status to a healthy state. The relationship between the new and the old strengthens the ‘timing’. The carriers of time and memory – the adobe walls, tile roofs and roof trusses have become the spatial dominance, and have jointly created context-continuing contemporary local aesthetics, together with the publicity of function regeneration.

Library & Academy for Performing Arts Pupillensite in Aalst, Belgium by KAAN Architecten

Friday, July 15th, 2016

Article source: KAAN Architecten

The new complex for the municipal library and the Academy for Performing Arts in the heart of the Flemish city of Aalst will have a lively, urban character. It may sound contradictory, but precisely because the plan of the design by KAAN Architecten is functional, the result is a certain spatial freedom that enriches the experience of the building. The complex, situated on the corner of Oude Graanmarkt and Esplanadestraat, will be completed in 2018 – a century on from the end of World War I.

ATRIUM – JUSSIEU UNIVERSITY in Paris, France by Périphériques Architectes

Wednesday, July 13th, 2016

Article source: Périphériques Architectes

The 16m building on the Jussieu university campus, near the historic center of Paris, extends and completes the grid plan that architect Edouard Albert designed in the 60s to serve 45 000 students and researchers. The response formulated by Périphériques Architects for the extension is based on the existing system, where buildings are laid out in a crown configuration; but at the same time, it deforms it: where Albert laid out a single patio, Périphériques Architects have planned two. One of them is covered by the bridge-buildings raised on pilotis to make short-cuts in the ring like circulation itinerary, and forms a “vertical place” that groups all the movements of the buildings. This concrete space opposes its heaviness and hardness to the light-weight metal cladding of its outer skin.

Sunday, July 10th, 2016

Article source: Fokkema & Partners Architecten

ROC Mondriaan in The Hague officially opened the schools that were renovated by Fokkema & Partners to become a new Hospitality Campus. At the opening, the Mayor of The Hague Van Aartsen stated: ‘This new campus is an asset to the city and for education in the region’. Today more than ever, the school can cooperate with the city and local business opening its facilities for events and meetings. The design by Fokkema & Partners provides the students with a fully equipped and bright learning environment as well as with a vibrant heart where they can practice their skills. Organized around a grand café in the central atrium there are several restaurant “pockets”. These pockets with different hospitality concepts each have their unique style and offer splendid views of the student activity in the preparation kitchens. A new canopy over the entrance accentuates the view into the grand café depot.

Article source: mateo arquitectura

Three interventions make up the proposal:

  1. Marinadour. A dense complex of dwellings on top of a podium of shops and car parks.
  2. The Park generated by reorganizing circulation and segregating the traffic above from pedestrians, with the massive presence of vegetation between the footpaths.
  3. Rivadour. A continuous urban block that follows the river before breaking off towards the city. Permeable on the ground floor.

House E in Linz, Austria by caramel architekten zt gmbh

Friday, July 8th, 2016

Article source: caramel architekten zt gmbh

Located on the periphery of the city, the plot of land offers a spectacular view of Linz, as long as one builds high enough to be able to gaze over the neighbouring properties. That is why the ground storey lies about 6m above street level – with the pleasant side-effect of allowing the garden area to adjoin the living area on the same level to the west and north, despite the extreme slope.

Alfred House in Melbourne, Australia by Andrew Maynard Architects

Friday, July 8th, 2016

Article source: Andrew Maynard Architects

In a Nutshell

Alfred House is an addition and reconfiguration of an existing two storey, two bedroom terrace, with a tired lean-to that had little relationship with the exterior space. The client wanted us to replicate one of our previous projects, Vader House, as they liked the idea of a centralised courtyard.  It was an interesting idea for us to revisit and to evolve, as we were able to push the concept further due to the property’s connection with the laneway. The big challenge was that Alfred had less than half of Vader’s budget.
