Albertina Passage in Vienna, Austria by Sohne &ampPartner Architekten

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Article source: Sohne & Partner Architekten

The main challenge at Albertina Passage was to recreate an abandoned pedestrian underpass at the very center of Vienna into a modern dinner club for up to 300 persons. Our target was to design a club that is suitable for an elegant dinner as well as for a big party night. Hence, the design includes live music, a restaurant and a lounge. Our idea was to include these functions in one concept.

G House in Sydney, Australia by Bruce Stafford Architects (designed with SketchUp and AutoCAD)

Tuesday, April 10th, 2012

Article source: Bruce Stafford Architects

A typical eastern Suburbs harbour view site; long, narrow and sloping away from the road toward harbour and Manly views.
As the house is set lower than the road with living spaces opening back toward the street, a lightweight timber screen filters street views and creates privacy, yet allows light and ventilation to the private living spaces. The house has two living levels; the primary living level opens out toward an elevated view and the lower living area flows out to a pool deck and private courtyards.

H-Orange in Tokyo, Japan by Takuro Yamamoto Architects (designed with Vectorworks)

Saturday, April 7th, 2012

Article source: Takuro Yamamoto

H-ORANGE is an independent house featured by the character of its site, which is located next to a small field and large woods, although it is placed in the center of Tokyo.

To emphasize the scene of the woods and big blue sky above the field, west side of the second floor is widely opened with horizontal windows, and a large open-air terrace is located to surround the floor including the living room. With this arrangement, the residents can enjoy the harvest of the vast space above the field. But the view of the field itself is not really beautiful because it was insensitively walled by bricks and these walls seemed to give closed feeling of the place.
