Maison R in Coppet, Switzerland by Lacroix Chessex Architectes

 
August 25th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Lacroix Chessex Architectes

This house from 1936 is surprising by its height, much more important than houses from the neighborhood. The cover (roof and frontage) has to be renovating because of massive thermal losses. Moreover the owner finds his house to big and wishes to rent a part of it. So the mission is to reset up reconfigure the inside and rethink all the external cover, which means proposing a new architectural expression.

Hybrid Farm Apartment Building in New York by Weston Baker Creative Group

 
August 25th, 2016 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Weston Baker Creative Group

The Hybrid Farm Apartment Building is a new building type designed for cities, which offers farm space for locally grown produce as well as residences. This particular hybrid farm design also addresses local conditions at the High Line and positions the hybrid building within the general context of architecture in the area. The geometry of the building adjusts to the angle of the sun throughout the day. Only the top of the building sees the morning sun because of the height of the surrounding buildings in Chelsea. As the sun comes across the sky to the West, the building twists to evenly distribute daylight throughout the day. The farm terraces are accessible by residents of the apartments on each floor. There is a public observation garden on the top floor and an art gallery on the second floor, both accessible from the High Line.

Jindal Pipes Corporate Office in Gurgaon, India by Morphogenesis

 
August 25th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Morphogenesis

The project entailed taking a completed building and designing the interiors for it with obvious constraints imposed on the interior architecture as the building design was done independently and with little provision for the intended and eventual use of the building. Although this was a huge challenge, but also made the design process immensely interesting.

The Moody Pedestrian Bridge is a one of a kind Inverted Fink Truss bridge in Austin, Texas. The bridge connects two buildings as part of the Moody College of Communication at The University of Texas. It crosses over West Dean Keeton Street, a busy thoroughfare that traverses the campus. The bridge is characterized by a series of slender steel towers that vary in height and scale creating an elegant statement along one of the major avenues surrounding the campus. This type of bridge is the first of its kind in the United States, and the only one worldwide with a single support tower as the main loading member. The overall length of the bridge is approximately 300’ (91m) with a slender high tower of 65’ (20m) which marks the bridge crossing from a distance creating a gateway to the university campus for students and visitors alike. The pedestrian bridge compliments the architecture of the Bello Center, one of the recently completed buildings of the College of Communication. The bridge has integrated aesthetic lighting into its stainless steel railings.

The bungalow is the first of a series of cabins to be built over a spectacular site in Tepoztlán, a small paradise located at about 50 km from Mexico City. The town has fantastic weather conditions, and a unique character built thru its pre-Hispanic origins that were followed by a colonial center that is still the heart of the village; its charm attracts the presence of intellectuals and thinkers to stay over the weekend, or for longer periods of time.
