HIGHWAY REST STOPS 1-2, Rest Stops for the new Highway in Gori, Georgia
In 2009, the head of the Roads Department of Georgia commissioned J. MAYER H. to design a system of 20 rest stops for the new highway, a thoroughfare that will run through Georgia and serve as a connection between the Republic of Azerbaijan and the Republic of Turkey. Two first rest stops were completed in 2011 near Gori, a third in Lochini was finished 2012. The new rest stops are located on selected scenic viewpoints along the route and serve as activators for their area and neighboring cities, including not only nearby a gas stations and supermarket, but also a farmers market and a cultural space for local arts and crafts.

In 1989, Vestbo, a local housing cooperation acquired a stunning site 10 minutes north from Bergen.
The plot is up in the hillside and has spectacular views over the fjord leading into the Bergen harbor.
Vestbo developed most of the land before the year 2000, but one plot had been preserved due to a high power line above that went over it and made it uninhabitable due to electrical radiation, In 2008 the power company dismantled the power line and put it underground. Suddenly the possibility for a new housing development arose.

Located in an environment that lacked strong marks, the Metro Station 20 should be a signal, a structural element of the landscape, it must be at its scale. We have designed a structure that is both generous and sensual, with a glass volume curves embracing the ground and reaching the underground platform level by penetrating light and vegetation. The structure consists of 27 metal arches on a plot of 4,00 m, of variable height and width, starting from the rail level. The height varies between 19 and 24 m and the width between 17,80 m et 30 m. They are connected by a secondary structure of metal tubes that support the triangular glass panels. This structure also supports the road that enters into the glass volume and will form a bridge of 105 m length suspended from the metal structure. In its central part, this bridge will be slightly curved to give greater height above the access platform.

Located on a lot with a pronounced depth, in a residential area in the South of Timisoara, the house adheres to the street front, modestly following the example of the nearby buildings. The façade lines are simple and clear, leaving room for a rich inner life, connected to the natural elements and enlivened by coloured lights.

Klopf Architecture, Arterra Landscape Architects and Flegel’s Construction recently completed a beautiful and insightful remodel of a classic Eichler home that I think would be a perfect fit.
I know that this remodel of an iconic mid-century home would be a wonderful renovation feature, because the design team so sensitively addressed the needs of the homeowners and expanded on the original intent of the home.

Fornebu S is the latest contribution to Fornebulandet, a peninsula alongside Oslofjord, currently in the process of urban renewal. The centre’s strategic siting gives residents of Snarøya and Fornebu access to a much needed shopping precinct and meeting place. The main square provides an active connection to the centre and an important node for the orientation and gathering of people in the area. The square consists of restaurants, cafes and a cultural arena to magnify the bustling life of the area both during and after closing times.

Minimalist design meets everlasting intellectual values. Temple of books shaped into a long brick house in the side of the Big-Proud Peak, Hungary, from Foldes Architects
The project initiated by an intellectual couple, had a clear starting point, as highlighted to architects Laszlo Foldes and Peter Sonicz: “We own a length of books something like 100 meters”. The owners of the site had found the best location to retire from work and the noise of Budapest in a rich natural environment, at the side of the Big-Proud Peak.

Budapest is often called the Queen of the Danube: the most characteristic feature of its bank-side scenery is the Buda Castle, which has been subject to major reconstruction works in recent times. An important stepping-stone in this process is the revival of the Castle Garden Bazaar (Várkert Bazár), wedged between the castle and the river: the stunning complex originally consisted of a Neo-Renaissance garden, the castle walls and 19th century buildings.
