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.

Windswept in San Francisco, California by Charles Sowers Studios

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Article source: Charles Sowers Studios

Windswept consists of 612 freely rotating wind direction indicators mounted parallel to the wall creating an architectural scale instrument for observing the complex interaction between wind and the building. The wind arrows serve as discrete data points indicating the direction of local flow within the larger phenomenon. Wind gusts, rippling and swirling through the sculpture, visually reveal the complex and ever-changing ways the wind interacts with the building and the environment.

Conde House in Seixal, Portugal by SAMF Arquitectos

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Article source: SAMF Arquitectos

This house, for a musician, is located in a low-density housing area, near a large pinewood, south of Lisbon. The site had an unusual topographical situation, where the construction of the front street had cut the landscape to form a small “cliff” 3/4m high. The house was thought as a substitution of this cliff, maintaining the original situation overlooking the street, over a high sustaining wall. A patio was excavated as the entrance.

L-Shaped House in Belgium by Cocoon Architecten

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Article source: Cocoon Architecten

This house for a small family is located in a residential area in Belgium.  In this first stage, the client asked for a small house with a high level of detail.  After some time, the house will be enlarged by adding some additional volumes to accommodate their future needs. Because of the shape and location of the land, three important points were to be considered when designing the house.

L-Shaped House

  • Architects: Cocoon Architecten
  • Project: L-Shaped House
  • Location: Belgium
  • Software used: Generally using Autodesk Autocad 2012 and Revit 2012, combined with 3DStudio Design 2012 and Sketchup in the office. For this project Autocad seemed the best choice due to the small size of the project and difficulty of the details.  In Revit it would have been much more time consuming.
