IKC de Geluksvogel in Maastricht, The Netherlands by UArchitects

This a unique sustainable and digital school in the Netherlands.

Two existing schools in two neighbouring locations in Maastricht are merging into a new school on a new location in that city. This particular location was chosen to strengthen the weak social structure of the two neighbourhoods and to introduce a new digital education system to learn also more about the environment, nature and sustainability. Even the playground outside has different zones to help children (re)discover nature and explore their world by means of experiments or to build and test objects.

The Grove Design Hotel in Tbilisi, Georgia by Laboratory of architecture #3

 
October 17th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Laboratory of architecture #3

The diversity and contrasts which is offered by the physical and psychological context of the building site, provoked a certain conceptual objective which goes through every part of the exterior and interior design composition. Aim was to sustain a quantum quality of being here and there at the same time, holding the design at the degree when opposite meanings blend into a single matter. Though the layout and the volumes of the Building were intentionally chopped, to achieve a human scale, it still has the large scale elements like a dynamic shape of a portico or a monolithic surface on the facade of a tower which provide a certain feeling of  monumentality.

Millgrove House in Toronto, Canada by Toms + McNally Design

 
October 17th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Toms + McNally Design

For Toms + McNally Design, Architecture is a response to context. Millgrove House, located in rural Hamilton, sits on a property that contained an abandoned apple orchard, and a hay-growing farm for local use. Situated between mature treelines and forests, the site is gently rolling. As a result, the design strategy was to use the topography in order to maintain a modest appearance from the street while providing a spacious home for a middle-aged couple with four adult children.

A residential building on a prominent urban development site at a corner by the Helmut-Zilk Park is setting a vitalising accent on the new district of the Central Railway Station – the contest-winning project of the architecture collective feld72. The building is positioned opposite the already existing Sonnwendviertel educational campus, its striking corner situation creating a landmark within the developing urban district. The building typology harks back to the characteristics of old city buildings, enabling a rich diversity of uses. One of its main focuses is on the practical options offered by the “Stadtsockelzone”, the ground floor area, promoting revitalisation of the neighbourhood.
