Home for Life in Lystrup, Denmark by AART Architects (designed using AutoCAD and Revit)

Saturday, January 14th, 2012

Article source: AART Architects

Home for Life is located in Lystrup outside Denmark’s second-largest city, Aarhus, and leads the way to the next generation of climate-neutral buildings. It is designed as the world’s first Active House and is a result of a research and design development aimed at ensuring a necessary foothold in architecture in an anticipated low-carbon future. The 200m2 single family house is a CO2-neutral demonstration project, which systematically uses the energy from the sun. 7m2 solar collectors, 50m2 solar cells and a solar heat pump contribute to reduce the demand for energy, while strategically placed solar-cell operated roof windows offer a balanced amount of daylight to the bedrooms and the kitchen-dining room area. Furthermore, all roof windows have dynamic, solar-cell operated blinds on the inside and awnings on the outside.

In 1999, unlicensed treasure hunters unearthed a remarkable archaeological relic: a 3,600-year-old sky disc made of bronze inlaid with gold. It depicts complex constellations and the symbol of the solar barge representing the sun’s nightly passage from west to east. An architectural competition was launched to design a public archaeological centre and an observation tower that would showcase the disc and come to symbolize the region.

Audio Nova in SintNiklaas, Belgium by LABSCAPE Architecture+ ZEST Design (designed with Rhino 3D)

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

Article source: LABSCAPE Architecture+ ZEST Design

The purpose is to de-dramatize the feeling of being a “patient”. A balance should be found in order to have a medical touch as the “hearing environment” demands to be hygienic, clean… but also human.  Besides that, the concept must express professionalism and technical competence but in the sense of “state of the art”.
