Färgfabriken Kunsthalle in Liljeholmen, Stockholm by Petra Gipp Arkitektur (designed using ArchiCAD)

Friday, December 16th, 2011

Article source: Petra Gipp Arkitektur

In the land marked industrial building dating from the last turn of century there are imprints of different eras. It can be compared to an archive layers of time. The building has served as ammunition factory, paint factory and presently as kunsthalle for contemporary art and architecture. The kunsthalle lies in an area with heavy, superannuated industrial buildings, more or less degenerated. This is a landscape that has been left, that is waiting to be demolished and integrated with the surrounding city. Until then, this place lives on its own terms.

Retreat in Michigan by Salmela Architect

Thursday, December 15th, 2011

Article source: Salmela Architect

The client’s goal for this retreat was to create a beautiful series of structures and spaces to sustain the environment and family over the long term where relatives and friends will visit, stay and return again and again and the land will be cared for. The 16 acre site is three miles from the Sleeping Bear dunes on Lake Michigan. 10 acres comprise of a field of crops and 6 acres of a tall beech forest touching 290′ of shoreline of this small inland lake. The solution has entailed restoring the field from crop land to native grasses. Walking pathways were created that align and converge with the entry drive into the forest which leads to the dwellings.

The civic scale of Fire Station 30 marks the transition between the commercial activity of Rainier Avenue and the residential Mt. Baker neighborhood. The scale and material presence of the two‐story building make it an anchor along historic Mt. Baker Boulevard. The highly transparent street façade allows passers‐by to view activity within. At night, the illuminated building becomes a beacon of the Seattle Fire Department’s presence within and commitment to its community.

Venice is an organic city, where the sea water goes in for six hours and goes out for six hours from the lagoon, which surrounds the city.. The saltwater is mixed with fresh water of the lagoon, creating a unique ecosystem, where, perhaps, against nature, man has built. In these green water, due to the life of the seabeds, everything is reflected, starting from the sky which provides colour variations throughout the day, seasons and weather conditions.
