ECO-CITE LA GARENNE in FOURCHAMBAULT, France by Guillaume Ramillien Architecture

 
January 9th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Guillaume Ramillien Architecture

In a city split by rail lines, neighborhood transformation through an appreciated “eco-city” must take into account its unique scales and existing qualities :

– the smooth downtown connexion via a footbridge

– the proximity of “La Garenne” woods with their rich arboreal heritage

– an ancient and deeply-rooted gardening culture in urban areas ; and vast open spaces.

Screen House in Singapore by POIESIS ARCHITECTS

 
January 9th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: POIESIS ARCHITECTS

The Screen House is located on a triangulated plot of land somewhere in the western part of Singapore.  Prior to the rebuilding, the carparking for the house was located on a steep incline leading up to the 1st storey of the house which is approximately 2.5m higher than the adjacent road level.  In order to take advantage of the topography of the site, the decision was made to “carve” out a basement storey. With this strategy, the carparking area is hidden away.  An entire new basement storey could then be tucked neatly into the site. The new house from road level looks like a 2.5 storey house when in fact it is a 3.5 storey volume.

Deep Point Road House in Montross, Virginia by BFDO Architects

 
January 8th, 2018 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: v2com

A 1950s ranch house failed to make the most of its 17-acre site overlooking two converging creeks. The owners wanted to enlarge the house and take advantage of the sweeping vistas and light reflected off the water. The house was torn down to its foundation, which had to be kept in part due to the building’s proximity to the water. (The Chesapeake Bay Act would have required that a new structure shift significantly away from the shore.)

Beaufort Maritime and Energy Research Laboratory in Cork, Ireland by McCullough Mulvin Architects

 
January 8th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: v2com 

The project – a Maritime Energy Research and National Ocean Testing Facility – located beside the Lower Harbour in Cork, Ireland, involves a tall element housing research spaces and a lower tank hall containing testing facilities. Conceived as a stone outcrop on the edge of the water, subject to the action of wind and sea, the plan form is driven by the size and relationship of the four testing tanks, used alternately still or agitated with paddle mechanisms and profiled floorplates to simulate wave action, coastal erosion, ocean floor modelling.
