Lafayette Custom Mid-Century Modern Remodel in California by Klopf Architecture

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015

Article source: Klopf Architecture

The owners of this property had been away from the Bay Area for many years, and looked forward to returning to an elegant mid-century modern house. The one they bought was anything but that. Faced with a “remuddled” kitchen from one decade, a haphazard bedroom / family room addition from another, and an otherwise disjointed and generally run-down mid-century modern house, the owners asked Klopf Architecture and Envision Landscape Studio to re-imagine this house and property as a unified, flowing, sophisticated, warm, modern indoor / outdoor living space for a family of five.

LE DIAMANT THEATER in Québec, Canada by Saucier + Perrotte architectes in collaboration with STGM architects

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015

Article source: Saucier + Perrotte architectes 

Our approach is based on the notions of landscape and geology that characterize the built environment of the historic district of Old Québec. Nearby, the strong presence of the Porte Saint-Jean and the defensive system that constitutes the Fortifications of the city of Québec reiterates the dual nature of these buildings that are both architecture and  landscape. Though the surrounding buildings belong to a variety of styles and eras, their  common denominator is based on a strong relationship with the mineral, and an  architectural composition in horizontal strata. This reading of the city as stacked stratum  transcends time so that we find it in all the surrounding buildings. Thus, there is a timeless horizontal frame that serves as an anchor for the realization of a contemporary project in continuity with the old fabric of the city.

Solar vineyard chapel in Franschhoek, South Africa by Margot Krasojevic Architects

Sunday, December 20th, 2015

Article source: Margot Krasojevic Architects

Solar Chapel at the HoldenManz Wine Estate, Franschhoek, Cape Town. The project utilizes the same solar panel technology used on the farm to clad the expanding wedding chapel’s roof structure. The vertiginous mountains within the estate are reflected in the beton brut primary structure off which the concentrator Fresnel lenses, solar panels and holographic filters are suspended. The concentrator photovoltaics arrangement uses an angular configuration similar to that of a butterfly’s wing receiving more exposure to solar rays affording maximum efficiency for electrical output. The frame expands and contracts enabling a further rearrangement of this concentrator photovoltaic cluster.
