Tuesday, April 19th, 2016

Article source: Architecture Casa

Constructed directly on the rocky terrain, along the St. Lawrence River in the Charlevoix region, residence Panorama is a space in harmony with the surroundings. The foundation concept was to sit the construction on parallel concrete blades, so that the water can naturally flow underneath the building.

Sloan Berkes House in Naramata, British Columbia by Allen+Maurer Architects Ltd.

Friday, April 15th, 2016

Article source: Allen+Maurer Architects Ltd.

Pebbles lives among the pebbles, as underground garage tunnelled into the steep hillside from the access street at the north-east. It was too steep to build a road to the top of the ridge from where one looks up and down and across the Okanagan Valley and -Lake, so this was the only option. Pebbles is also home to a wine room, kept at the temperature of the earth surrounding it, a foyer, and the geothermal heat pump.

House with ZERO stairs in Wroclaw, Poland by STOPROCENT Architekci

Friday, April 15th, 2016

Article source: STOPROCENT Architekci

The clients, a middle-aged couple, approached us with one definite request – they wanted to build a house with no stairs, a house that would be equally practical and enjoyable when they get old. The site offered no obvious clues – a flat piece of land in a second line of buildings, in a suburban part of the city of Wrocław, among disappearing traces of a rural past, surrounded by a chaotic mix of houses of all styles, materials and conditions.

The Supreme Court of the Netherlands in The Hague by KAAN Architecten

Thursday, April 14th, 2016

Article source: KAAN Architecten

The new building of the Supreme Court of the Netherlands by KAAN Architecten has been decidedly integrated into the elegant historic city centre of The Hague. The building, which houses a staff of 350, verges on large: 104 metres long, 22 metres deep and 27 metres tall. These dimensions, with the measured vibrancy of its facades, add some allure to this part of the city centre.

The plane trees and six legal scholars in bronze seated on pedestals make for a wide gateway on the Korte Voorhout, a royal route leading to the buildings from Parliament. The entrance hall seems to have been chiselled from a solid block of marble. It serves as a sturdy base for the superstructure of glass panels and slender latticework. These and other ostensible contradictions seem to reflect the work of the Supreme Court itself. Open and closed, distinguished and functional, hard and ethereal, rough and refined – all exist alongside routine business, on which judgements are passed with great clarity of mind.

Antalya Green Hub in Turkey by Alper Derinboğaz, Salon

Thursday, April 14th, 2016

Recently Antalya is under a rapid transformation like many other cities in Turkey. These quick transformations usually aim segregated mediocre urban projects rather than balancing the benefits of different actors. Although there are many possibilities for a city like Antalya with much diverse qualities such as forests, sea, history, tourism and culture most of the renovation projects are enclosed mediocre worlds that rather try to exist within their limited environment.
