Article source: C.F. Møller Architects 

The design of the new student housing for the University of Southern Denmark in Odense is based on a strong community spirit. The 250 student residences are located in three interconnected 15-storey buildings. This means that the residence has no front or back, but appears attractive from a 360-degree perspective. The building’s distinctive shape will make it easily recognizable on the campus, and clearly advertises its distinct residential content.

Tim Raue, one of Berlin’s top chefs, brings French flair to the Glockenbach area of Munich with his new brasserie, “Chez Colette”. Even the façade, with its grayvarnished timber panelling and integrated mirrored-glass blackboards, brings famous Parisian brasseries to mind. As do the furnishings inside, with many selected historic materials and pieces of furniture sourced from vintage dealers to give “Chez Colette” the atmosphere of an established restaurant from the start.

Office Building with Super Market in Bielefeld, Germany by Architekten Wannenmacher+Möller GmbH

Article source: Architekten Wannenmacher+Möller GmbH

Bielefeld’s eastern city centre experienced significant changes in recent years. With the start of industrialisation and for the following decades, its nature was primarily commercial, presenting a heterogeneous, hardly urban appearance. The potential for development of this area, bordering directly on the city centre, was recognised already in the eighties. Increasing vacancy rates provided the impetus for structural reorganisation of this area, with the objective of mixed residential and industrial use.

Bay House in California by Razvan Barsan + Partners

Article source: Razvan Barsan + Partners 

Located on a remote beach, the ruins of a former industrial site inspired us to create a sea-side house inspired by the industrial era.  Reviving the existing layout has been one of our main concerns while trying to integrate the residential function into the industrial setting with its ragged appearance. However, fitting the new building into the amazing surrounding and making the best of the views it has to offer led us through the design process.

Article source: Panacom

The territory of the former wagon-repair factory \”Sofia\” includes preserved buildings and manufactories of the factory from the early 20th century. Under conditions of the renovation of this historical space we tried to implement the basic principles of cultural design, use the basic principles of classicism in our project. The main planning axis, starting from the building of the shopping center (Saves workshop building) runs through the whole territory and dissolves in nature. The core of the residential complex becomes the canal. The quarterly buildings facades solution was carried out using contemporary architectural language, but using regularities of building’s classic facade. Most of the site area presents by residential area, which includes neighborhoods, residential buildings, apartment buildings-cylinders, children’s institutions, trade and service complex, FLC and garages. The boulevards channel and pond axis unites areas as well as green territory of parks. Areas with dense buildings are interspersed with open spaces, parks and public spaces. We offer three types of \”Park\”: a memorial or historical, regular or \”French\” and an irregular or \”English\”. Transport idea of the project – the exception of transit through the residential complex and the reduction of traffic in it to a minimum.

Colorado Outward Bound School Micro Cabins by ColoradoBuildingWorkshop

Article source: ColoradoBuildingWorkshop

Located on a steep hillside in a lodgepole pine forest, these cabins were designed as micro dormitories for the Colorado Outward Bound School. The cabins sit lightly on the landscape, directing views from private spaces towards trees, rock outcroppings and distant mountain views of the Mosquito Range. More public “community” views are directed into social spaces that develop from the organization of the cabins in relationship to one another. These community spaces are made up of front porches and the negative spaces between cabins.

VARNA CONTEMPORARY LIBRARY in Bulgaria by PLUKK / Architecture

 
April 26th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: PLUKK / Architecture

The form of the library is based on the idea of ​​the concentration of local collections of education into a single treasury, whose looks of a golden casket associates the most precious treasure of the country. The heart of the building consists in its own book archive, surrounded and protected by successive library spaces with direct daylight and freedom of movement in both the horizontal and vertical direction. The solid mass of the archive is slightly rotated in order to create qualitatively comparable surfaces throughout the building. The library operation is divided into four basic segments. An elevated parterre with a mezzanine operates with a minimum built-up areas, as you can enter it from all directions. This leads to an active link between the public space of the city and the library. Ir is followed by a segment associating four stories of the library for adults and youth, which is coupled with a reading room and a terrace continuously bordering the entire building. The last function block houses a media library and the children’s department. It has its own sheltered terrace which opens to a panoramic view of the town and the nearby sea.
