Sunset House in Vancouver, Canada by McLeod Bovell Modern Houses

 
June 3rd, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: McLeod Bovell Modern Houses

Located on a steep and technically challenging site in West Vancouver, the Sunset House is designed to capture immediate views of heavy marine traffic and the open sea to the west. The irregular shape of the sites boundaries align with the edge of the house and culminate in a substantial blinder which provided privacy from adjacent properties.

Nestled between a park and a hill, this house for a Catholic family is a vessel that channels views in from the front and rear, and where they meet in the middle, bridges them across.

Trout Lake House in Washington by Olson Kundig

Article source: Olson Kundig

“The buildings recall the agricultural forms of the local built environment, but as is our nature in our designs, we sought to take that context and evolve it to a more emphatic modern language. We sought to design something that was exquisitely proportioned in a quiet, agricultural way.” –Tom Kundig, Design Principal

This proposal regenerates a neglected site to provide 26 new homes for private rent, with affordable creative start-up space at ground floor. The ‘Build to Rent’ model enables the delivery of high-quality homes with a new focus on catering for long-term tenancies.

Boiler House Conversion in Libčice nad Vltavou, Czech Republic by Atelier Hoffman

 
June 3rd, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Atelier Hoffman

From the pile of ashes and rubble. An original conversion of a former boiler house into a multi-functional leaseable area for cultural, corporate and social events, with an ambition to become the heart of a future arts & culture district existing in a symbiotic relationship with traditional crafts and technological innovation and preserving, in a unique way, the industrial phase of the city’s development which has significantly influenced the historical context of the place in question. It is another important project contributing to the gradual regeneration of the former large industrial estate of ŠROUBÁRNA (Screw Factory) in Libčice nad Vltavou near Prague which provided people with jobs and a place to live and became a bearer of near 150-year tradition of know-how and craftsmanship in the field of screw and wire production. The brownfield, which currently operates at a fraction of its former capacity, is thus being revived with a plan to preserve and develop the tradition of crafts and manufacturing. The boiler house, together with the already iconic industrial gem of Uhelný Mlýn (the Coal-Grinding Mill), are the beginning of the new UM Valley located in a meander of the Vltava river. It represents a precedent for many other still dilapidated sites.

Landmark with a view

Studioninedots completes residential complex on Zeeburger Island Amsterdam

On the northern tip of the rapidly developing Zeeburger Island in Amsterdam Studioninedots, commissioned by de Alliantie and Lingotto, designed two striking volumes. Due to their stepped profiles and changing facade rhythms they appear different depending on the viewing angle. All 142 residences plus the shared outdoor spaces on the deck are orientated towards the magnificent views.

Gebrüder Weiss Head Office Lauterach A in Austria by CUKROWICZ NACHBAUR ARCHITEKTEN ZT GMBH

 
June 3rd, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: CUKROWICZ NACHBAUR ARCHITEKTEN ZT GMBH

The new headquarters for Austria’s oldest transport and logistics firm is based on the idea of a continuous car park. The new structure has been located along the site boundary slightly away from the road, thereby embedding the new building within the activity of the distribution centre while distinguishing it from the neighbouring residential area. In response to this heterogeneous urban context, Cukrowicz Nachbaur developed a precise, planar two-storey office building arranged around inner courtyards which harmonises with its setting in style and scale. The company’s values and global stature are also manifested in the new architecture. By raising the headquarters off the ground, the offices are afforded unobstructed views over Gebrüder Weiss’s characteristic orange fleet. This sense of elevation expresses the importance of the building itself as the organisation’s headquarters. A grand two-part ramp leads from the entrance to the main floors. Within the two upper office levels, mezzanines and transparency are used to emphasise the non-hierarchical corporate structure, promote internal communication and encourage spontaneous exchanges among staff. This generous interior atmosphere represents a spatial experience for all its users and the architectural embodiment of the aspirations of Gebrüder Weiss. The building’s point-based wayfinding system is a metaphor for goods in transit and GW’s worldwide network. Its design scheme conveys a sense of self-assured internationality.

A project that engages in Etna area, a crossroads of flows and the heart of the historic center: the main hub of the Catania movida, but above all the history and culture of a dynamic city and always looking for new challenges.
