Westrock Drive House in Austin, Texas by TOM HURT ARCHITECTURE

Thursday, May 3rd, 2018

Article source: TOM HURT ARCHITECTURE

This house addition — approximately 1100 SF of new space — stretches and grows out of an existing low-slung, 1950’s ranch house with a view of the Barton Creek Greenbelt in the Barton Hills neighborhood in Austin, Texas. A vertical tower of interwoven levels, the design weaves together two home offices, as well as a family living room, reading room, play loft, and roof deck for two creative tech professionals and their young child.

Mount Herzl Memorial in Jerusalem, Israel by Kimmel Eshkolot Architects

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2018

Article source: Kimmel Eshkolot Architects

The Mount Herzl Memorial Hall is a unique place of commemoration. It’s raison d’etre is to be a memorial for all the fallen soldiers of the country, and thus contains all their names.

It is a project of hope for peaceful times.

Set in a calm biblical scenery, but adjacent to the nowadays busy streets of Jerusalem, the space is isolated and quiet. It was excavated in the mountain to form an intimate space for both personal and collective experiences of commemoration. Above the hall, the mountain is reconstructed of curved topographies made of Jerusalem stone. An undulating funnel-shaped formation of bricks opens the excavated hall to the sky. Its irregular vortex shape floods the space with ever- changing natural light.

RM Home in Castel San Pietro Terme, Italy by Gian Luca Zoli architect

Friday, April 27th, 2018

Article source: Gian Luca Zoli architect

The family (a couple with a little girl) no longer recognizes itself in the home chosen and furnished a decade ago. The starting point is to give order at all the already existing elements and very different to the stilistic goal the family require but also at the innate but compulsive accumulation trend of the three. A single oak floor becomes the new carpet that overcoats all the ground floor, completely transformed. In the brightness of the light tones of the prevailing finishes, the three major episodes of the dark tones emerge: the kitchen island in gray quartzite; the fireplace and the triangular wardrobe. Both of them are covered in raw black sheets.

Gateway – Deloitte HQ in Brussels, Belgium by JASPERS-EYERS ARCHITECTS

Tuesday, April 24th, 2018

Article source: JASPERS-EYERS ARCHITECTS 

As one of the world leaders in financial and business services, Deloitte is also a trailblazer when it comes to innovative, contemporary working culture. It’s no wonder, then, that their new building at the Brussels Airport site in Zaventem would become a reflection of what the company stands for.  It’s an international melting pot, where work and leisure go hand in hand and where flexibility, communication and versatility are key words.

Jaspers-Eyers Architects, which has extensive experience in designing contemporary work environments, took up the challenge for developers Codic and Immobel. The challenge was to transform abstract concepts into tangible architecture that is firmly grounded in the present and future. Architecture with respect for the existing complex, which is partially renovated. The result is both sober and imposing, a modern giant with one eye on the landing strip and the other on Zaventem.
