Kindergarten Jelka in Ljubljana, Slovenia by ARHITEKTURA JURE KOTNIK

 
June 21st, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: ARHITEKTURA JURE KOTNIK

Kindergarten Jelka is an extension of a kindergarten in a housing neighbourhood from the sixties in a Slovenia’s capital city Ljubljana. When a new housing complex was built in the vicinity, this kindergarten extension became a necessity. Local authorities have commissioned a local prefab company to build the new annex entirely from wood, also to showcase the adequacy of wooden constructions for the kindergarten use. Building with local wood is not only nature friendly way to create healthy and cosy environment, but it is also a first step to invite the children into the world of sustainable values.

Aequilibrium in Venice, Italy by C+S architects

 
June 21st, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: C+S architects

Equilibrium is a state in which opposing forces or influences are balanced. A state of physical balance; A calm state of mind; in chemistry: A state in which a process and its reverse are occurring at equal rates so that no overall change is taking place; in economics: a situation in which supply and demand are matched. Equilibrium is that of the ‘house of cards’, of the tightrope walker, of the proportion of a classical column or of a statue, of the sailing boat travelling not upwind or lee.

Forrest Hammock Gallery in Fukuoka, Japan by Hirokazu Suemitsu + Yoko Suemitsu / SUEP

 
June 21st, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Hirokazu Suemitsu + Yoko Suemitsu / SUEP

This is a small art gallery in large camphor trees of a new park in Fukuoka. The structure of this gallery is a suspension system like a hammock in a forest. It’s floor and roof are both steel- concrete composite slabs hanged from the column walls between trees, which is an extension of its piles from the ground. The curved surface of the roof is a catenary shape following to a force of gravity. The suspended slab works to lead people from the park into this gallery, and suspended roof works to make shades on the inside of the gallery. People will appreciate arts of the gallery with comfort like in a hammock in the forest.

The Campus of Segovia is placed on a large plot in the suburbs of this historical city. It is a site defined by the lack of public spaces. This project intends to create an important cultural pole. Therefore, it stands surrounding a big covered square which will be used not only by students and teachers, but also by the neighbours of the area.

Micro Apartments – Rooms by the Sea in Kwai Chung, Hong Kong by Bean Buro

 
June 21st, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Bean Buro

Bean Buro has poetically created a series of 240sqft (22.2sqm) micro apartments in Kwai Chung Hong Kong as part of a residential development roll out.

Inspired by the surrealist painter Edward Hopper, the effect is a transitory space that simultaneously reflects the external dynamic lifestyles of Hong Kong urban dwellers while creating a calm internal environment. The aim was to create a space for one to reflect inner life and feelings by being able to personalise the space with sentimental person objects. Similar to Hopper’s famous painting Rooms by the Sea, Bean Buro’s canvas paintings depicts natural sunlight captured and the internal space is more an evocative metaphor of silence and solitude than the transcription of an actual scene.

The Solar Energetic Pavilion by jantzen studio

 
June 21st, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: jantzen studio

The Solar Energetic Pavilion is a proposal for a large public art sculpture made of steel tubes, and fifteen large solar cell arrays in the shape of four-foot diameter disks. The eight foot three and a half inch diameter steel tubes are all bent into six-foot radius curves, and connected together to form the main body of the sculpture. Each of the curved sections of tubing are placed together end to end and rotated to various degrees relative to one another, before they are fixed into longer curved sections. These long sections are then attached with bolts at their intersections, in order to form the abstract curvaceous shape of the pavilion. Fifteen of the long curved sections of tubes are terminated into a vertical position above the rest of the structure, where the solar arrays are mounted. Each of the fifteen solar arrays are also connected at their bases to sun tracking motors so the disk shaped solar cells can follow the sun throughout the day. The electricity generated from the sun through the solar cell arrays is used to light the pavilion at night, with the excess electricity used by the community in which the structure is installed. The conceptual design of the Solar Energetic Pavilion originates from a symbolic visualization of energy patterns associated with the conversion of light energy into electrical energy. It also refers to a large plant with leaves that convert sunlight for use by the plant through the process of photosynthesis.

The Crossing in Auckland, New Zealand by Studio2 Architects

 
June 21st, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Studio2 Architects

The Crossing is a private home built on the original cattle tablelands overlooking Pakiri Beach.

The house fuses together a limited material palette of concrete, blue steel, and oiled cedar into a bold and incredibly dynamic space, allowing the owner (a professional writer) genuine flexibility to entertain, while acknowledging the need for the relative solitude of a working studio space.

Sainte-Anne Academy, the school of tomorrow in Dorval, Canada by Taktik design

Article source: v2com

Designing an elementary school of tomorrow in a 120,000 square-foot heritage building built in 1896—that’s the challenge that Sainte-Anne Academy gave Taktik Design. From room layout to furniture design to communications, this innovative project was undertaken by Taktik Design’s industrial, interior and graphic designers. After the team proposed the initial solutions, they were given carte blanche to create an efficient environment that accommodates the latest teaching standards. The fun-filled environment at the Academy was designed with kids in mind; the space is less of an interpretation of their imaginations and more of a blank canvas for their creativity.
