THE FLOATING KAYAK CLUB in Vejle Fjord, Denmark by FORCE4 ARCHITECTS

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

Article source: FORCE4 ARCHITECTS

The Floating Kayak Club is located on the water pulled away from the shore, which highlights the building as a sculptural object and focuses on kayaking as an outdoor water sport. As the building floats, the relationship between the building and the water is so close that the user gets the full experience of practicing the sport in its true environment.

Kki Sweets and The Little Drom in Singapore by PRODUCE Workshop Pte Ltd

Saturday, November 28th, 2015

Article source: PRODUCE Workshop Pte Ltd

Kki Sweets sells beautifully handcrafted Japanese-inspired French mousse cakes, and The Little Dröm Store offers art and design driven knick-knacks. And they share a space at the School of the Arts (SOTA) building in Singapore.

While the design brief is simple – the two brands share a storefront, and thus they need to retain their distinctive identities and yet not look like two completely separate entities – the key challenge is to create an appropriate work that meets the standards of the award-winning SOTA building, and to create something new despite the influence of such a commanding piece of architecture.

Šmartno Timeshare Kindergarten in Šmartno pri Slovenj Gradcu, Slovenia by Arhitektura Jure Kotnik

Friday, November 27th, 2015

Article source: Arhitektura Jure Kotnik 

The Šmartno Timeshare Kindergarten was designed to encourage interaction, peer learning and self-learning. It has an open floor plan, which merges poorly used spaces such as wardrobes, corridors and stairs into one learning landscape together with playrooms; opening the playrooms’ wholly-glazed inner walls creates as much as 700 m2 of unlimited play area.

Srygley Pool House in Springdale, Arkansas by Marlon Blackwell Architects

Thursday, November 26th, 2015

Article source: Marlon Blackwell Architects 

The Srygley Pool House is located within a suburban neighborhood that offers little variation from the typical single-family house model.  The simple form of the building strikes a bold pose within this landscape.  The pool house is wrapped in subdued cedar siding, allowing the seemingly foreign form to coexist with the surrounding brick and cedar residences.

Back of the Yards High School in Chicago, Illinois by STL Architects

Thursday, November 26th, 2015

Article source: STL Architects 

This urban high school is organized into three thematic components: body, mind and spirit, that relate to the various programs and activities within the school that compose the curriculum. The site is zoned according to these thematic areas and bars are created, housing the athletics (body), the academy classrooms and teaching spaces (mind), and the library, arts and music (spirit). The bars slide against each other to create outdoor spaces on the site, programmed for specific activities that work in conjunction with the buildings—entry courtyard, athletics fields, and reading garden. The three volumes (body, mind, and spirit) that comprise the school are created by one continuous wall that snakes back and forth through the site.

Tattoo House in Victoria, Australia by Andrew Maynard Architects

Thursday, November 26th, 2015

Article source: Andrew Maynard Architects

An extension to an existing 3 bedroom house in Fitzroy North to provide new living and kitchen space for a growing young family. Many of the design decisions were generated by the tight budget. The form is a simple box- the strongest form an architect can achieve at a bargain basement price.
