House on Fire Island in New York by Studio Twenty Seven Architecture (designed with Rhino, AutoCAD, and Photoshop)

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Article source: Studio 27 Architecture

This is a summer beach house in the resort community of the Pines on Fire Island New York. The typology of the homes in the Pines is recognizable to anyone who has visited an East Coast Shoreline resort town. It is a builderdriven typology reflecting the pragmatism of the inhabitants of these coastal communities. Almost always the “good sense” pragmatism that allows these homes to be built affordably overtakes the inherent liveliness and natural spirit of the place and creates structures that are a bit dull. This project inserts some of the “spirit of the shore” into this “Yankee thriftiness” residential typology. Common detail and material remain, but the volume of the house is expressed as a skin, rather than as a box-like container. The skin keeps the heat in. Over time, the skin of woven cedar boards will assume the same patina as neighboring houses. Large windows are introduced to reveal a luxurious light interior.



Oleanderweg in Halle-Neustadt, Germany by Stefan Forster Achitekten (designed using ArchiCAD)

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

Article source: Stefan Forster Achitekten

This conversion of existing prefabricated building in Halle-Neustadt resulted from the city reconstruction for the International Architectural Exhibition (IBA) in 2010. Originally, 2 or 3 apartments per floor were arranged around 11 staircases.  By reducing the staircases to 6 and removing the associated corridors.  It has allowed for the extension and rearrangment of the apartments. Outdoor spaces have been formed by removing alternating sections of the 3rd and 4th floorplates, creating large outdoor terrace spaces.  On the floors below, wide, continious balconies provide quality outside spaces for the flats.

E. Pearce Revisited in New York by workshopapd

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

Article source: workshopapd

Paying homage to the Baroque staircase attributed to 17th century English master Edmund Pearce (on exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art), workshop/apd fashioned a contemporary update for a modern Tribeca loft. Where Pearce incorporated oak leaves and pine cones, we digitized interlaced tree branches to create an element of modern-day beauty and craft in water-jet cut steel, bringing fancifulness and ornamentation back to architecture. Like its predecessor, the dramatic scroll – now in perforated steel – weaves the two floors together in a unique way.

In Johannesburg, South Africa, Nico Van Der Meulen Architects designed this spectacular 26,000 square foot home. The owner’s only criteria were an open, light filled plan, and views of the garden from all rooms. The architects devised a massive complex of living spaces, arranged in a semi-circular pattern to envelope the garden. Monolithic concrete framework is arranged in a radial pattern, emanating from the center of the home. The framework complements outdoor living spaces, including decks, patios, pools, and fountains.

Hotel Ayre Rosselló in Barcelona, Spain by Johannes K. Wortmann

Sunday, March 18th, 2012

Article source: Johannes K. Wortmann

To be confronted with a building site in the shadow of the “Sagrada Familia“ a key work of  the Catalan master Antoni Gaudí, is an unique opportunity in the life of an architect.

We were perfectly aware that the particular modernist style – to be read as a Catalan version of Art Nouveau – influenced by surrealism, the colorful ornaments reflecting organic elements taken out of nature, as well as the daring structure of the cathedral, represents for the city of Barcelona the same overwhelming attraction as the Frank Gehry`s Guggenheim Museum for Bilbao.

Dress House in Klagenfurt, Austria by Heri & Salli (designed using Rhino)

Sunday, March 18th, 2012

Article source: Heri & Salli

The architecture studio heri & salli from Vienna conceived for one part of an already existing house in Austria/Klagenfurt a façade design made of perforated sheets of aluminum. Already existing views were picked up and subjected to a dynamic appearance. The object was to create a homogenous appearance, to reinforce and underline the presence of the existing cube and at the same time conserve functions like the view to the outside through the facade.
