Bularnia in Krakow, Poland by BudCud

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

Article source: BudCud

Bularnia is an honest, functional office space on the ground floor of postindustrial building on the outskirts of Cracov. The goal was to introduce more natural light to dark and overpowering interior. This move redefined new proportions of space and optically enlarged narrow and low room. What’s more, light and transparent finishing materials, such as glass, delicate steel mesh and perforated boards were used to emphasize the openness of new office space.

B-House in Tel Aviv, Israel by Architekturbuero Sven Roettger

Monday, February 18th, 2013

Article source: Architekturbuero Roettger

The historic context of the “WHITE CITY” of Tel Aviv with its unique assemblage of “Bauhaus-Architecture” inspired this residential design. The solid geometrical volume joins those of its prominent neighbors, inserting a contemporary interpretation of that style. The body of the building is a concrete structure, a rectangular volume cast in situ with rounded edges.

Levin Residence in Arizona by Ibarra Rosano Design Architects

Saturday, February 16th, 2013

Article source: Ibarra Rosano Design Architects

Three simple volumes hover above the desert, responding to the challenges of a sloping site and to an ethic of building with minimal disruption to the natural environment. The available buildable area was bifurcated by a minor drainage-way, which inspired the architects to leave the cars behind and link the parking area to the main house by a bridge that allows rainwater and wildlife to flow beneath it.
