Atelier Kempe Thill has recently won the invited international competition for the transformation of Wintercircus Mahy in Ghent. The building that served as a circus building until the early 20th century and later as garage and showroom for the enormous old timer collection of car dealer G. Mahy will be transformed into a meeting-point and hotspot for creation and innovation. The new centre will house the ViAA (Flemish Institute for Archive of the audio-visual heritage), Luisterpunt – a library for blind people, i-Cubes – a centre for starting ICT – firms and, a new medium – size rock concert hall that will be constructed under the main atrium space. The renovation of the building is part of the transformation of the Waalse Krook-neighbourhood in the centre of Ghent together with the new library and living lab for new media that is already under construction.

Kic Park in Shanghai, China by 3GATTI Architecture Studio

Kik Park is a leftover urban area that Francesco Gatti is surprised to see has escaped being built-up and which is positioned at the entrance to the Kic Village, constructed in recent years for the students at the nearby universities of Fudan and Tongji.  Since 2005 when the Italian architect transferred part of his professional activities to China he has recurrently been interested in the possibility of designing interstice spaces – as in the case of the In Factory JingAn Six Loft Buildings (2006), where the outside areas of the redevelopment project were treated on a par with a residential and work environment.

Design

Villa S2 on IJburg island is a three-story high split-level villa with spacious design, high ceilings and great openness to the waterfront. The form of the villa had to be a very compact one. This is controlled by the relatively small plot so close to the water on one hand and client needs on the other.

This so called ‘terrils’ find their origins in the former mining industries and are commonly perceived as striking elements dotted within a flat panorama.  Besides the landscape having been shaped through a number of linear infrastructures such as railways, highways and channelled waterways; the E19 and the service areas cut through the landscape to become geometric ribbons that visually demarcate the landscape.

Service Station With Hotel in Heverlee, Belgium by ABSCIS Architecten

Article source: ABSCIS Architecten

The location of Heverlee Delek creates an oasis in which the traveller/commuter can relax within a contemporary environment to refuel, shop and eat before continuing their journey. Starting from the E40; a strong infrastructure vein, fast traffic is refined and reduced until finally distilled into quieter parking spaces and picnic areas.  These areas visually meander and flow into the surrounding landscape and beyond.  Central to the idea of the plan is a pedestrian axis. This directs traffic to specific areas, solely dedicated for the purpose of rest and relaxation. This ‘walking-axis’ offers the possibility for users to experience the surroundings and to pleasantly reach the service station in safety.

Sansepolcro Cemetery in Arezzo, Italy by Studio Zermani e Associati

 
January 16th, 2013 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Studio Zermani e Associati

Sansepolcro, the halfway point between Santiago de Compostela and Jerusalem, and birthplace of Piero della Francesca, is surrounded by the hills on the border between Tuscany and Umbria that the painter transferred into his own pictorial space. Piero often observed the landscape from inside: for him, the background was important, as was the point of view. The extraordinary perspective application of his images imposes the relationship between eye, architecture or monument, and landscape with didactic clarity. The landscape of Sansepolcro is a place recognised as far back as the description given by Pliny: “Beautiful is the aspect of the region: you can imagine it as an immense amphitheatre, such that only nature is able to create.”

Urban concept

The project was obtained by winning a competition called by the City of Mechelen.

The city council aimed the old Buso site to be developed as a high quality urban area, housing ten loft dwellings. The commission was entrusted to dmvA because they were the only architect office that took the ‘spirit of the factory’ as starting-point.

Barrow House in Melbourne, Australia by Andrew Maynard Architects

 
January 15th, 2013 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Andrew Maynard Architects

The Barrow extension appears as an arrangement of timber boxes, each independently rotated and subjected to varying amounts of extruding and manipulating forces.

These separate actions result in a variety of shapes, which united, create an interior of differing volumes and organizations, providing an interesting double story addition to this weatherboard house.
