Single House In Bescano, Spain by Josep Ferrando Bramona

 
March 24th, 2012 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Josep Ferrando Bramona

The house is situated on a crest, generating different relationships with its immediate environs.  On one side, the treetops are at the level of a veranda; on another side, the entwined branches, when viewed from the sitting area, act as a filter through which to contemplate the outdoors. The basalt-covered roof frames and underlines in black the views which provide different depth perceptions, thus offering the dweller a differing range of situational views.

Marine Parade Apartments in Maroubra, Australia by Smart Design Studio (designed using MicroStation)

Article source: Smart Design Studio

This building in Maroubra, Australia accommodates four luxury apartments- one per floor plus a carpark/ services level that is built into the hill. Maroubra has incredible natural beauty with its rocky cliffs, white beaches and crystal blue waters but the urban fabric is unconsidered, uninteresting and largely in decay. Smart Design Studio capitalised on this unique setting by creating a building that focused on the wonderful view from within and, through strong form, has created a handsome building in profile to enhance the urban fabric of this area.

SEA House in Esposende, Portugal by VA studio

 
March 24th, 2012 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: VA studio

The outer look of this patch of territory, still showing signs of rural traits, is somehow maintained by making slight corrections along the wall and by putting a new set of site access gates, that will fully preserve which is already standing and assure that it fits the surroundings. The projects’ concept had urban and landscape integration thoroughly into account – it was intended to give the structure a contemporary look, intentionally contrasting with the rustic granite walls.

Chalet in Chateau-d’Oex, Switzerland by RBCH architectes

 
March 24th, 2012 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: RBCH architectes

Situated in a residential area in Château d’Oex, this new building was thought as a replacement for the former house whose size and outer layer failed to meet present day standards for a family home. The structure of this new building is made of poles and beams as a reference to the local traditional chalet. This structure also offers flexibility in the working of the outer layer as prefabricated wooden units fit into the pole structure. This is like a game and allows both a quick and cost-effective construction. Fir tree wood was mostly used as it is the main local building material. It allows a homogenous reading and emphasises the brightness of the inner structure.

Youth Center in Niafourang, Senegal by Project Niafourang

 
March 24th, 2012 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Project Niafourang

In the fall of 2011 three architecture students from NTNU travelled to Niafourang, a small coastal village in the Casamance region of Senegal, to design and build a Youth Center. The population of Niafourang is approximately 300 inhabitants. The village is very poor and people generally live hand to mouth. Locals harvest rice from fields and fish from the river. The region is lush with vegetation due to its tropical climate. There is a high unemployment rate and many young people leave Niafourang to find work elsewhere.

Article source: Studio Twenty Seven Architecture

Mosaica Academy is a new charter school located in the southeast quadrant of Washington, DC. The design of the school is based on the Paragon Teaching Method employed by the school, which replaces traditional history and social studies curriculum. The school program encourages students to gain a historical understanding through the chronological study of the evolution of world cultures, encouraging them to identify associated interrelationships and develop a larger picture of history as opposed to memorizing isolated events. The building is designed to exemplify the Mosaica teaching model and physically represent the program inspired within each space.

EUROBORG STADIUM in Groningen, the Netherlands by Wiel Arets Architects

 
March 23rd, 2012 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Wiel Arets Architects

The multifunctional Euroborg stadium is a catalyst for a multiplicity of amenities that do not compete with the facilities in the city centre, but reinforce Groningen’s key position in the north of Holland. The complex houses theatres, sports facilities, shops, offices, apartments and catering establishments, in a synergy that benefits both users and facility managers. Rather than a conventional stadium with a football pitch, Euroborg will be a sort of microcosm where social interaction and social control go hand in hand.
