Sunday, March 25th, 2012

Article source: Visiondivision

Spröjs Cabin is a small 40 m2 summer house with a 20 m2 loft to host a normal family of a couple with two to three kids. Although it is fairly small the house includes a kitchen, a living room, a medium sized bathroom and an extra room plus a sleeping loft. The small size and the simple design of the house make it very easy to fit into almost any Scandinavian environment. The interior is however light and modern and very functional to serve the custom-made needs for any particular client.

Saturday, March 24th, 2012

Article source: Gudmundur Jonsson Arkitektkontor

The Cabin is designed for adaption to multiple settings not taking any particular site into consideration, being a product for mass-production distribution.

The general idea is to establish a Cabin-concept that favours a nice landscape setting with the need of appreciating a wonderful view. Two volumes containing bedrooms and service-area are composed in order to obtain the living and dining room space as glazed pavilion in-between giving contact to the nature in all directions.

Marine Parade Apartments in Maroubra, Australia by Smart Design Studio (designed using MicroStation)

Saturday, March 24th, 2012

Article source: Smart Design Studio

This building in Maroubra, Australia accommodates four luxury apartments- one per floor plus a carpark/ services level that is built into the hill. Maroubra has incredible natural beauty with its rocky cliffs, white beaches and crystal blue waters but the urban fabric is unconsidered, uninteresting and largely in decay. Smart Design Studio capitalised on this unique setting by creating a building that focused on the wonderful view from within and, through strong form, has created a handsome building in profile to enhance the urban fabric of this area.

SEA House in Esposende, Portugal by VA studio

Saturday, March 24th, 2012

Article source: VA studio

The outer look of this patch of territory, still showing signs of rural traits, is somehow maintained by making slight corrections along the wall and by putting a new set of site access gates, that will fully preserve which is already standing and assure that it fits the surroundings. The projects’ concept had urban and landscape integration thoroughly into account – it was intended to give the structure a contemporary look, intentionally contrasting with the rustic granite walls.

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

Article source: Cândido Chuva Gomes, Arquitectos

The original building was designed by José Costa e Silva, and opened in April 1948. Two big classrooms volumes were positioned symmetrically, joined by a central body, which included an archway, where the covered recess area operated.

Through a gallery, and from the main hall, the two volumes (corresponding to the old male and female wings) linked themselves to another volume, corresponding to the gymnasium and the dining hall.

The residence is articulated as  “boxes ” each finished in white plaster, and raised on steel pilotis.

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Article source: Kengo Kuma & Associates

Location of this Starbucks is somehow characteristic, as it stands on the main approach to the Dazaifu Tenmangu, one of the most major shrines in Japan. Established in 919 A.D., the shrine has been worshiped as “the God for Examination,” and receives about 2 million visitors a year who wish their success. Along the main path to the shrine, there are traditional Japanese buildings in one or two stories. The project aimed to make a structure that harmonizes with such townscape, using a unique system of weaving thin woods diagonally.
