House G-S in Gent, Belgium by GRAUX & BAEYENS Architects

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

Article source: GRAUX & BAEYENS Architects

This 19th century corner house is located at the Muide waterfront area with a unique view on the old city harbor docks of Ghent, Belgium. The project startedby stripping the dilapidated house of all excess. The essence was conserved by means of the façade, the stairwell and the roof truss, each of them serving as a rough coat to envelop the new spaces.

S-Mahal in Gyeonggi-do, Korea by Moon Hoon (designed using AutoCAD and SketchUp)

Sunday, June 24th, 2012

Article source: Moon Hoon

When I was a high school student, I had a friend of slight build who always used to carry the Book of Changes with him and was interested in Korean traditional classical music. He was faithful in his religious life, at the same time full of curiosity about the secular world and always paced around restlessly. One day after 20 years, he called me out of the blue. He had in the meantime become a veterinarian and wished to move to India a few years later to lead his own life. After getting together with him for a chat over a drink a couple of times he asked me to design a house where he, his wife and her parents would live together. He wanted me to build an inner court and madang where he could raise animals, as well as a prayer room.

Petting farm in Den Uyl Park, Netherlands by 70F architecture

Saturday, June 23rd, 2012

Most city parts of Almere, a city with almost 190.000 inhabitants, have a petting farm. In the ‘den Uyl’ park there used to be one, but it burned down in the early 80’s, leaving only its concrete foundation. Early 2005 we were commissioned by the municipality of Almere to design a new petting farm on the exact location and the remaining foundation. The building was finally built using almost only sponsored money, and finished late 2008.

Dwelling in Etura by Roberto Ercilla Arquitectura

Saturday, June 23rd, 2012

Article source: Roberto Ercilla, Arquitectura

The visual impact of the housing is reduced by placing it below the access level into the side, with a piece strongly over hanged. This is achieved by minimal intervention in the environment (9% parcel occupancy). The roof garden with a small access pavilion and vehicle protection completes the intervention.
