House M in Möhlin, Switzerland by Jan Skuratowski Architektur

Wednesday, March 1st, 2017

Article source: Jan Skuratowski Architektur

The new single-family house was designed as a separate residential unit and can hold its own next to the existing building from the 80s. It is situated on a partly raised plateau in the south-eastern part of the property. The two buildings differ in their roof design and thus emphasize their autonomy. At the same time, the new building paraphrases the existing building’s design: by its polygonal ground plan, which follows the hill’s shape, and expressive cantilevered floors. Wood was used a material to contrast the rather heavy sand-lime brick of the existing structure. Hierarchically, the new building is supposed to subordinate to the existing building and is therefore set slightly to the rear of the site. The new structure appears like a pavilion and, thanks to the flat roof, has a large accessible roof terrace that expands the small plot effectively. The greening of the roofs is intended to give the new building an animated character and link it with nature and the hill.

Morris Law in Gothenburg, Sweden by Bornstein Lyckefors Architects

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

Article source: Bornstein Lyckefors Architects

Lawyer’s Office Morris Law has the stated ambition to reformulate what business law might mean. The guiding principles of the company’s values are concepts such as “transparency”, “efficiency”, “excellence” and “mindfulness”. Our interpretation of this was to create an open and social workspace without clear hierarchies. One example is the entrance lobby, which is surrounded by a wooden structure made of maple with shelves, mirrors, cork and brass net, acts both as a workspace for the employees, as well as a place to meet customers. Another example is the absence of cellular offices; designing all workplaces the same size and instead divide them with the help of wooden frames, which are also made of maple. Felt, mirrors and cork inside these frames create privacy and noise reduction.

The office of Morris Law is today a work environment without clear hierarchies, where the meetings between employees and customers are in focus.

Courtyard House in Toh Yi Rd, Singapore by Ming Architects

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

Article source: Ming Architects

Flanked between the koi pond and the swimming pool, the double volume courtyard – a fulcrum to the house, was introduced to break the monotony of spaces in this linear house. Horizontal and vertical movements are endless and ample daylight floods the key living spaces. A 3-storey high feature steel staircase floats above the koi pond, with a vertical feature wall of black river pebbles as its backdrop. A slim bridge suspends over the courtyard and ties the front and rear wings of the house.

Chapel of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour in Goa, India by architecture R/T

Saturday, February 25th, 2017

Article source: architecture R/T

The chapel bears no resemblance to others in the locality, yet has a deep rooted connection to its location. The building with natural stone textures blends well with the surrounding vegetation and complements the hill slope on which it abuts. The natural stone backdrop provides a divine setting, bathed in natural light, to the prayer hall. Other than the flat portion of the site where the old demolished chapel was sited, the rest of the area including the hill slope and the hill top beyond was replete with wild vegetation and teak trees that has been left more or less undisturbed. The chapel has been built in the most environment friendly manner.

ICE Krakow Convention Centre in Poland by Ingarden & Ewý Architects

Saturday, February 25th, 2017

Article source: Ingarden & Ewý Architects

ICE Kraków Congress Centre is a modern, world-class venue dedicated to culture – music, opera, ballet, theatre – and congresses. Designed at the highest standards of acoustics and mechanics. Besides the three main halls with 1915, 600, and 300 seats, the shell holds a multifunctional conference space of 550m2. ICE Kraków stands in the most prestigious location in Poland: opposite Wawel Castle, a location that influenced main design decisions. Hiding a multi-story foyer open to a panorama of Kraków, the Vistula embankment façade is spectacularly transparent. The outer shell combines glass, ceramics, and aluminium, with colours ceramic tiles reflecting those of the interior: red of the Auditorium Hall, graphite of Theatre Hall, white of the foyer, and the silvery aluminum used for the roof.

Mt Macedon House in Australia by Field Office Architecture

Saturday, February 25th, 2017

Article source: Field Office Architecture

Mount Macedon House was a significant and challenging design opportunity, with a complex site, strict bushfire protection regulations and specific client brief all playing an important role in the final project outcome.

A long, yet narrow site, it is nestled into the side of Mount Macedon with sweeping views across bushland to the north and north east in a very tranquil and restful setting.

Psicopedagogical Center of Osona in Spain by COMAS-PONT ARQUITECTES SLP

Thursday, February 23rd, 2017

Article source: COMAS-PONT ARQUITECTES SLP

All the rehabilitation services for people with mental illness are grouped in this building composed by the repetition of a 6m wide spatial module.  An economic and energy-sustainable constructions system, the domestic scale and the warmth of the interior spaces added to the closed relationship between building and nature makes it a HEALTHY BUILDING.

The building is located next to the main health centers of the city (Vic), surrounded by a park on the outskirts, and its program is basically developed on a ground floor to facilitate the mobility of its users.

VILLA BRAECKMAN-STAELS and GARDEN COTTAGE in Sint-Martens-Latem, Belgium by De Smet Vermeulen architecten

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

Article source: De Smet Vermeulen architecten

PASTORAL MEMORIES, revisited

The opposition between cities and countryside in Flanders has increasingly become a mental rather than a physical one. A long-standing anti-urban policy has led to a thorough contamination – i.e. urbanization – of the Flemish countryside. Multiple networks connect locations irrespective of their urban or rural status, enabling ever more frequent movements, eroding physical boundaries, merging it all into a semi-urban pattern we call the Nebular City. Inside this Nebular City, rurality has become less a fact than a choice, less a self-evident tradition than a mental construction. It is the architect’s task to design this mental construction.
