House in Miramar, Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal by e|348 arquitectura

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014

Article source: e|348 arquitectura 

It is a building consisting of two distinct adjacent and interrelated volumes, the housing itself – consisting of two storeys plus a penthouse – and a garage.

Although the volume, apparently, is being treated as a solid monolith, it is fully traversed, with vertical and horizontal voids, with the purpose of creating strong visual relations with its contiguous exterior spaces, and allowing the light to enter through the entire house.

Lingo Construction Services in Oklahoma City, OK by Elliott + Associates Architects

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Article source: Elliott + Associates Architects

Located in the historic Automobile Alley District of Oklahoma City the design seeks to transform an existing 1930 historic masonry and steel building into a modern office space. The character of the 12,000 sq. ft. two story building, originally built for Sharp Auto Supply Co, had been diminished by thick layers of paint, historically inaccurate additions, and years of misguided design efforts.

The building covers the entire lot. There is 10 feet of additional space on the north end that allowed us to construct a fire stair, mechanical enclosure, and covered outdoor deck. This exterior construction made it possible to leave the interior intact. The open framing is consistent with the exposed studs on the interior that dramatizes the construction behind the walls., Image Courtesy © Scott McDonald, Hedrich Blessing

Espace Culturel Marc Steckar in Paris, France by ARCHICLUB

Friday, April 11th, 2014

Article source: ARCHICLUB

Urban approach . The study site is a vacant lot owned by the city of Bessancourt and located a few hundred meters away from the town hall. Its location is in continuity with its historic downtown. The site is marked on the north by the imposing presence of a church. The urban environment of the study site is very mineral, the stone church is massive and reinforces this homogeneity. The building distribution on the site is diffuse and invites us to propose a singular object, an additional object that can join the existing group.

Cut and Frame by ashton porter architects

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014

Article source: ashton porter architects

Reorganisation of the ground floor layout of a two storey semi detached residential property and the replacing of a garden shed at the rear of the garden with a writing hut.

The house design was driven by the requirement for both clients to work from home and both have separate spaces. The connection between the house and the garden writing hut was therefore a key element of the project.

Chapel Hezenberg, Netherlands by Möhn + Bouman Architects

Article source: Möhn + Bouman Architects

The journey of a stable to a chapel; the story of this little building.

Embedded deep in a beautiful landscape, itself shaped during the last ice age, this chapel embodies a peaceful and inspiriational atmosphere. The harmonious, timeless furniture, crafted from pure oak, reflects the building’s woodland environment. Behind the altar a unique piece of art shimmers softly in the light.
