Half Roof House in VinhLong city, Vietnam by AD+studio

 
January 12th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: AD+studio 

The “HALF ROOF” language beginning from the existing house will make renovation house modern but familiar which still keeps most of the living style as well as the memories of its owner.

For the first time coming here, we have the feeling about the depth of an “aged” house which is filled with its owners’ habit and memories from the very first years after Liberation.

The public swimming pool “Obermaintherme” in the Bavarian city Bad Staffelstein is Bavaria’s hottest and strongest saltwater emerging from 1600 m deep drilled spring. More than 1.600 m² water surface and more than 15.000 m² sauna are inviting to relaxing and recovering.

Within a large renovation process of some areas in the main bath hall, the inside pool has been renewed, too. A new highlight has been designed with a cave in the shape of a salt crystal made with LUCEM translucent concrete, allowing the new shell to light in different colours along with the water. This ambient lighting concept, along with a special sound system in the Cave integrated with the massage jet nozzles in the water, creates a wellness feeling for everybody inside this installation. The light shines through the surface of the translucent concrete with more than 2 million fiber optics.

Courthouse Béziers in France by Ateliers 2/3/4/

 
January 10th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Ateliers 2/3/4/

Open on to the city by nature, more than any other, a public building is an urban component. It signifies, invites, brings the city alive. The court plays on the duality between the urban monumentality of a judicial institution and the serenity necessary to handle delicate cases that affect people’s lives. Between stacks of three layers of rock, as stone blocks in a quarry, extends a landscaped oasis that filters the light, tempers the atmosphere and links the areas accessible to the public. The voids qualify the solids: at each level, projections and patios locate between the blocks. The stepped masses encourage the light to enter, creating internal landscapes to protect the premises from any intrusive view. As such, security of the facades and confidentiality are provided with ease.
