Imperial Doncaster brings the epitome of modern urban living to one of Melbourne’s most rapidly changing suburbs. The 93 unit complex was designed to appeal to a wide demographic, easily catering to the needs of downsizing owner-occupiers with bigger apartment sizes and generous balcony spaces. The design takes into consideration the local suburbs, parks, shopping centre and already established businesses, seeking a balance between the economical, environmental and aesthetic.

The project site sits on the corner of two quiet suburban streets in the beach-side suburb of South Fremantle. The area is characterised by single storey weatherboard workers’ cottages of the late 19th Century. Many have been restored, typically brought back to their original footprint of 2 rooms and a corridor, lean-to accretions of subsequent decades removed to make way for a new extension, which is a summary also of our project.

University of Innsbruck in Austria by ATP architects engineers

As a result of its victory in an EU-wide realization competition, ATP was commissioned to plan the refurbishment and remodeling of the Faculties of Architecture and Engineering Science of the University of Innsbruck.

The integrated concept proposed two highly contrasting approaches to the design of the two similarly structured buildings – which date from 1969 – as a means of responding to the different spatial and user requirements of the two disciplines (architecture and engineering). The suspended glass façade of the “Architecture Workshop” is playfully open whereas the precise, smooth high-rise silhouette of the Faculty of Engineering Science speaks another language while also acting as a landmark for the campus.

Paulaner Headquarter in Munich, Germany by Hierl Architekten

The design falls back on the type of courtyard development that is both suitable for giving the Paulaner headquarters an identifiable building and also for making reference to the history of the place and thus continuing the tradition of the former Zacherl brewery. Furthermore, it enables the creation of an administration building with various usages, flexibly mixed, and with variable, largely hierarchy-free occupancy, short distances and compact dimensions. The inner courtyard, as an expressive space and central point of the building, makes it a distinctive location.

As the scene blurs into a swirl and time gradually reverses back to the sweet old days, the song New York, New York by Frank Sinatra faded in to this vintage site of Yangmingshan, Taipei, where many US soldiers shared their memories of the 70’s Cold War Era. Far away from home, these warriors temporarily resided in this place; none of them knew if they could get back home again. This place was their only shelter, physically and mentally.

Chapel Mykonos in Greece by Dimitrios Tsigos – Omniview

Article source: Dimitrios Tsigos – Omniview

The interior design that converted legendary Zorbas Bar to Chapel is part of our strategy to return to our #CycladicRoots. This has to do with giving back to the Cycladic interior and exterior spaces the elementary, indigenous qualities that have been eliminated in the past 40 years in the name of modernity.

Arcs have been traditionally employed in the Cyclades to generate enclosure when there was no concrete. Double arched roofs, a 3d geometry that is defined by arcs in various directions, are the only way to make a building when all you have is stones. The interior space feeling of a double arched roof is remarkable, and it is closely interwoven with Cycladic churches are chapels.

Educational Ensemble Terenten in Italy by feld72

Houses for children

With the design of an educational ensemble for Terenten in South Tyrol, the Viennese architectural collective feld72 set out important measures for a new concept of a thriving village structure.

Educational ensemble

The idea of ​​the educational ensemble originated from a study in 2005, which involved the local community to develop a holistic concept for the village. Based on the original building of the 1970s, where the school and the kindergarten were housed together, a concept developed over the years which allows both facilities more space and interaction whilst at the same time integrating the existing village library.The educational ensemble opens itself to the village and vice versa – it becomes part of everyday life. A prerequisite for the implementation of this progressive and modern concept was the exemplary educational autonomy of South Tyrol and the very committed teachers involved in the project.The premise was to create an engaging and activating learning environment that encourages discovery, experimentation and research.
