Automobile Museum in Nanjing, China by 3GATTI Architecture Studio

Sunday, October 9th, 2016

Article source: 3GATTI Architecture Studio

“Car Experience” is a project for a building to be dedicated to the automobile:  the car as an object of desire, a world to explore, a technology to study, an article to display  and a means to travel around the building.

­Here the world of the automobile intersects with the human and organic world creating a new tectonic structure with methods differing from the usual flat open spaces, squares… all on a human scale.  Here everything is geared to the automobile – the car is the point of reference.

House of Hunting in Rønde, Denmark by Arkitema Architects

Sunday, October 9th, 2016

Article source: Arkitema Architects 

Jagtens Hus is situated on Mols peninsula in the eastern part of Jutland, Denmark, and is the new domicile for the Danish Hunter Association. In the two main longhouses you find the association’s administration, laboratory, education facilities, cantina and a build-in “hunting lodge”, all of which is closely linked to the surrounding nature. The black buildings are kept neutral and rough, to make room for the woods, the meadow and Kalø Inlet all of which embraces the domicile.

Spira in Jönköping, Sweden by Wingårdhs

Sunday, October 9th, 2016

Article source: Wingårdhs

Spira is twisted as a spiral to catch the attention of the eye as well as the body; transparent, to turn every side into a front; compact, to be efficient and sparse; meandering, to create expectation.

The performing arts centre Spira in the city of Jönköping is a regional scene for music and theater in the southern part of Sweden. It is a culturally vivid part of the country, but the performing arts have not had a permanent stage so far. Our proposal is a result of a winning competition from 2005 and the house was inaugurated on 11.11.11.

Seagull House in Guanacaste, Costa Rica by Indigo Arquitectura

Friday, October 7th, 2016

Article source: Indigo Arquitectura 

Casa Gaviota (Seagull House) is a project developed through a thorough site analysis and conscious awareness of the environment. Located in a mountain surrounded by topographic depressions, a mellow river and very close to the northern Pacific coast of Costa Rica, it stands lightly and volant on the terrain holding more than 80% of its areas in the air. It touches the ground only as needed, reducing the humidity and soil sealing and maximizing the natural ventilation through the project. The precise east – west orientation allows Casa Gaviota to fully open its north facade providing all the indirect lightning for the house and creating different environments that dramatically change throughout the day. A nearby river that refreshes and nourishes the flora and fauna of the place can be appreciated visually and aurally from the deck. The house stands at the height of the canopy of the trees. The opening between the two modules allows the user to continue its path through the mountain, the same path that existed before the house was built. The house does not interfere between nature and oneself.

SHELTER in Switzerland by Bureau A

Thursday, October 6th, 2016

Article source: Bureau A 

Architecture seeks the underground, searches for new territories under the skin of the earth. Bachelard woke up the right to the unconscious spatial exploration of the underground through the figure of the cellar. Virilio unveiled the potential of semi-buried architectures in his Bunker Archeology. Colomine brought up to light the hidden architectures and psychotic strategies of the American society during the Second World War in her book Domesticity at War.

Mr Lu Residence by Alfonsoideas Ltd

Friday, September 30th, 2016

Article source: Alfonsoideas Ltd

This is a 35 year old apartment that has total floor area of 86m2 including front and back balconies. It is a 3 bedroom unit and the ceiling height is only 2.4m which is not very high. . The space look rather small and tidy before the renovation , the idea was to open the public space and try to put all the storage in the decent space either against the wall or attach to the corner as if the space could look much cleaner. In order to make the space look bigger , the bedroom behind the living room was converted into a open study area which has very long study desk that can sit for 2 people at the same time. Using the brown tinted glass as the visual barrier to separate the study area and the living space, and yet it look much larger looking out from the study area.The TV wall cabinet extended twice longer so the living room can visually look bigger than before .
