Tusculum Street Residence in Sydney, Australia by Smart Design Studio (designed using Bentley Microstation)

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012

Article source: Smart Design Studio

This exciting renovation and extension of a turn-of-the-century terrace house in Sydney’s Potts Point focuses on a grand and gracefully spiralling stair that forms the pivotal junction of the old and new parts of the house. The staircase, spanning the width of the building, features delicate fan-like steel treads cantilevered from the central steel post and winding their way past six split levels, offset between the old and new sides of the house. The stair was conceived as the element that grafts the contemporary and new minimal structure to the refined, trimmed and formal older portion of the dwelling.

Police station in Barcelona, Spain by MIZIEN

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012

Article source: MIZIEN

Like many towns in El Vallès, in the metropolitan area of Barcelona, Palau-solità has tripled its population since the 1980s and extended by means of single-family houses and low-rise apartment blocks. In this context, a public building may be designed to give the main streets in the fabric an urban, civic character or to fit in with the series of warehouses, shopping centres and franchises that form the periphery of this sprawling urbanization.

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012

Article source: SAMF Arquitectos

This house and studio for a painter, is situated on the edge of a low-density housing development, bordering a large extension of pinewood.

The project chooses to invite this landscape into the house, opening generous views to the south, and the spaces created within, whilst sheltering itself from the surrounding urban situation, in a reinterpretation of local vernacular typologies.

Steckelhörn 11 in Hamburg, Germany by J. Mayer H. Architects

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012

Article source: J. Mayer H. Architects

The project “Steckelhörn 11” is located in the old centre of Hamburg, close to the prominent new “Hafen City” development. It replaces a ruinous building and fills the gap between two historic premises. The triangular-shaped lot stretches across the city block, thus allowing for a narrow façade of about 1.3 m width facing the harbor and a main elevation of about 26.4 m oriented toward Steckelhörn street. The vertical design and soft setbacks of the latter pay tribute to the massing of the surrounding structures, as well as to local building-height regulations.

Forest Stair in Stokke, Norway by Saunders Architecture (designed using ArchiCAD)

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012

Article source: Saunders Architecture

This sculptural installation was designed for the Sti For Øye sculpture park in Stokke, set amongst the Vestfold oak forest to the south of Oslo. Working alongside landscape architect and professor Rainer Stange in order to create the infrastructure for a woodland walk past a series of artists’ installations, Saunders proposed a series of steel and wooden walkways set at the highest point of the site, looking east towards Slottsfjellet, or castle rock. The design plays with the idea of an artificially facilitated foray up above the forest floor, an elevated viewpoint that would otherwise be unavailable to the visitor.

Branching Morphogenesis by LabStudio

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012

Article source: LabStudio

Branching Morphogenesis explores fundamental processes in living systems and their potential application in architecture. The project investigates part-to-whole relationships revealed during the generation of branched structures formed in real-time by interacting lung endothelial cells placed within a 3D matrix environment. The installation materializes five slices in time that capture the force network exerted by interacting vascular cells upon their matrix environment.

House in Senri in Osaka, Japan by Shogo Iwata Architects

Friday, May 18th, 2012

Article source: Shogo Iwata Architects

This house is planned for a family, husband, wife and their son. This small house has 8 levels of floor between entrance in the basement to the roof terrace in order to constitute every space not in concentrated way by big void but reciprocal relation of each space. This arrangement makes the notion of floor ambiguous and the continuity of space compatible with the hierarchy of space.

A Landmark building near Tarjish Square.
Isolation of floor units anticipate future seismic activity.  Staggered juxtaposition maximizes views, and creates various ‘green shelves’ for rain capture, irrigation, and shading during summer months.  These green shelves accommodate lush, climbing vines and vegetation for sound absorption and passive temperature control.  Cast glass discs are embedded at the ground floor and parking slabs for natural light and weight reduction.

Mini Rooftop in New York by HWKN

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

Article source: HWKN

A space for urban tastemakers without logos or branding. HWKN scouted the location, created the design and oversaw construction of the temporary event location for MINI’s ”Creative Use Of Space” campaign. The sheer surprise of encountering a hill on a roof in NYC is heightened by design elements derived from MINI cars that utilize object-in-field design, like deploying brake lights into a field of sheet metal instead of at a seam.
