Tower Studio in Newfoundland, Canada by Saunders Architecture

Saturday, May 12th, 2012

Article source: Saunders Architecture

The Tower Studio is dramatically situated on a stretch of rocky coastline in Shoal Bay, Fogo Island, Newfoundland. The studio’s sculptural silhouette leans both forward and backward as it twists upward. For the average visitor to the island, this windowless black tower, more often than not, provokes a quizzical response and the enviable question, “What’s that?” For the locals, they know that this structure is a project of the Fogo Island Arts Corporation – an art studio opened in June 2011. The Tower Studio’s official opening was one of the most festive and included: a roaring bonfire, flares dramatically shot from its rooftop terrace and the recorded sounds of local whales as a background score.

Commission

Courtyard house in Terrassa for a painter and a dancer.

Proposal

The staircase becomes the main point of the layout of the house and leads to the upper floor, where the parlour and terrace/courtyard are. Therefore we go up the noble area avoiding the painting workshop and the bedrooms, which are on the ground floor and the first floor respectively. At the same time an entrance of zenith light is created which lights up the interiors rooms of the housing.

Friday, May 11th, 2012

Article source: SNITKER/BORST/ARCHITECTS

Tuinstede is the last of three new blocks that have been built in the Noordstrook, north of Delflandplein in the Amsterdam district New West. The urban design for the Noordstrook is made by Snitker/Borst Architects. In order to increase the density of the neighbourhood the existing modernist open strip building plan will be replaced by three urban closed blocks with large communal courtyards. One of the streets will remain without cars and will be arranged as a playground for children. The urban design will be executed in two phases. Recently the first phase was finished. In a second phase the U-shaped blocks will be completed to closed blocks. The three blocks are designed by Dick van Gameren, ANA and Snitker/Borst Architects, respectively.
