The Site

The implantation of the project was dictated by the will of an urban re-organisation of the plots defined for the library, the TAP Hall, the multipurpose hall and the new school. Each access from the public space to these plots was located in a different area, we created a footpath from east to west that distributes every new public equipment in a single area. The implantation of the school to the east of the plot alongside the new library reinforces this new public alley. The project is based on the environment in its location, the minerality of the materials, the important surrounding vegetation, and the linear urban division divided by low stone walls located in the actual school’s playground.

The project was organized by Claudia Ebert (Budersand Hotel), Sven Paulsen (Adler Shipping), Arne Weber (HC Hagemann) and Peter Ewaldsen (mussel fishers’ representative) in cooperation with the Hörnum municipality. In addition to its key commercial role, the harbor is an important tourist attraction in the municipality. In 2016, the northern and southern moles had to be blocked off because they were at risk of collapsing – with a serious impact on their commercial use and on tourism.

The brief required a rectangular floor plan, whilst the creation of partition walls not to celling height and small separations between elements achieved captivating interior spaces that detract from the simple form.

The whole of the North façade and part of the West are glazed so that the entire view is accessible from the living area, dining and kitchen.

Fluid House in Taipei, Taiwan by CJ STUDIO

 
September 19th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: CJ STUDIO 

A city, from a multinational corporation’s perspective, is a local node to which its different components are distributed. Together with other cities where other parts are spread over, the corporation functions as a whole within the global network, thus it is inevitable for a multination business proprietor to fly between nodes to keep the company on track. The client of this project happens to be one of this sort, which brings up an issue of what a house could be like when its owner does not actually live there but just periodically visiting. The loose linkage allows the house divert from the conventional path and requires a new identity. As it only has to function occasionally, the house is more like a private deluxe hotel suite rather than a real home but is required to act like a real one when it performs. Besides the basic provision of living, it is crucial that there are certain flexible designs for diverse programs like relaxed socializing, entertainment and work.

Article source: hcreates interiors

Hooked is a casual fish and chip seafood restaurant and bar in the newly renovated Found 158 complex in Shanghai. The interior is relaxed and playful with fresh white furniture and white washed timber plank finishes. Tropical wallpaper and aqua blue add fun pops of colour throughout the space. The space is accented with some marine themed elements- boat cleats and rope – with a boathouse row feature wall. The bar references the inside of a boat shed with exposed framing and a weatherboard clad bar front. Hooked is fast becoming the go to place in Shanghai for a light and fresh free flow brunch or a relaxing evening cocktail. The playfulness of the space entices a young and crisp crowd.

House moser in Neustift im Stubaital, Austria by madritsch * pfurtscheller

Article source: madritsch * pfurtscheller

A 150 year-old barn that was no longer in use (and was about to be demolished) was torn down at its original site and rebuilt on the building site (about 800 meters further).
The required rooms were woven into it, with the existing structure informing the shapes and materials of the new. On the outside, the barn remains mostly unchanged, showing its cultural history, yet not as a landmark, but filled with new life. So it is in use once again and save from decay or demolition.
