This project is a store renovation for the furniture brand “Lost and Found” located in Guozijian Street, a historic district in Beijing. As nowadays, more and more people tends to live alone, the concept of a traditional family gradually disintegrated, and the city’s public space is becoming another “home” for people. Under such contexts, the renovation intends to bring the sense of “home” into the store, and to introduce a new vision for the future commercial space that connects people with urban public space.

Folkwang University of the Arts is North Rhine Westphalia’s college of art and music. Its main campus is housed in the former Benedictine abbey of St. Ludgerus in Essen-Werden, situated in the southern Ruhr Valley. The small 8th century site was extended into a princely baroque residence in the 18th century, arranged around a magnificent courtyard (Cour d’honneur). The construction of the new library on the south side of the courtyard by the architect Max Dudler replaces a 19th century military hospital building demolished in 1969. In 2006 Max Dudler won the design competition organised by the Duisburg branch of the Building and Real Estate Management Authority, North Rhine Westphalia. The project was generously supported by the Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach Foundation.

Slab House in London, England by Bureau de Change Architects

 
December 15th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Bureau de Change Architects

The focal point of the project is a concrete waffle shaped roof, which sits aloft the new living area. Its pre-fabricated peaks and troughs create trenches for rooftop planting, softening the volume, establishing a connection with the leafy surroundings and creating pleasing views from the floors above. From the garden, the roof trenches are out of sight, giving the immediate effect of a simple concrete slab, which contrasts with the texture of the original building.

Architecture of the time in Faggeto Lario, Italy by Ceresa Architetto

 
December 15th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Ceresa Architetto

The ring out of this valley is not changed, it’s the same silent which someone heard long ago, long before your passing.

Nothing ever happens here. But if you have patience when you stopping, you can understand how the atmosphere you breathe in this place is ancient, it’s chimes in ethereal way. It’s the architecture who is talking about this.

You can see, towards valley, the bell tower and the historic tower and between them the castle walls. The space between them has something pleasantly melancholy.
