Casa tag in Bergamo, Italy by dep studio

 
April 8th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: dep studio

The building is located in the historical center of a small town, in a densely built-up area that does not offer particularly fine views towards around. The property, donated to a young boy by his grandmother, had been subjected in the past to a major restructuring but presented some critical issues that compromised the use and that had to be resolved with radical interventions. First of all the lack of light in the interior.

Urban Treehouse in Berlin Zehlendorf, Germany by Baumraum

 
April 8th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Baumraum  

The Urban Tree house is a family project and is based on the initiative of the grandfather Hans-Joachim and his grandson Kolja, who ultimately implemented the project. Once more, it is conceived as an experiment and a research project for new construction and housing in tune with nature. It is intended to serve as an oasis and inspire friends and guests of the family, as well as students and those interested in architecture. We were very enthusiastic when the developer, Kolja Stegemann, approached us with the idea of implementing tree houses in the urban environment of Berlin. Tree houses are normally associated with a rural environment or natural surroundings.

Nursery in Buhl, France by Dominique Coulon & associés

 
April 7th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Dominique Coulon & associés

The building marks the entrance to a small village nestling in a valley in Alsace. A 14th-century castle dominates the site from the nearby hillside. The day nursery echoes the orthonormal geometry of the fortified castle. A perimeter wall with openings like on a castle wall protects the children’s playgrounds. This spatial arrangement offers views of the rounded outlines of the Vosges mountains. The principle of the strictly rectangular plan is an arrangement of successive crowns containing the elements of the project. These layers give depth to the project overall. The heart of the building is formed by a central space which emerges at double the height and plays with natural light like a kaleidoscope. This almost cubic volume condenses a host of faces ranging in colour from pink to red. The matte and shiny colours resonate, shaping the space to make it richer and more subtle.

Article source: DCA Architects 

The project brief was to create a dynamic and dramatic office space for a new division of a company with varied interests and businesses. Since the client had rented this space for a short term lease, the solution had to be a minimum investment on “fixed interiors” with maximum focus on elements that could be moved to another location and reused in future.

Solen vinklar in Edinburgh, Scotland by David Blaikie Architects

 
April 7th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: David Blaikie Architects

Background

Our clients have a strong affinity with Scandinavia – Mrs Penman is Swedish. Their children are being brought up bilingually.

Buying their first house together in Blackhall made a lot of sense with a family on the horizon and while the houses can be a little cramped there is always room for expansion. This 68M2, semi-detached single storey house is very typical of the suburban housing stock in this and many other areas of Edinburgh.  This house has the benefit of a 50M long back garden to provide the setting for a dramatic addition to provide a light filled space for a young family to grow up in.   At briefing stage, their storey board lent heavily on contemporary Scandinavian architecture – a route natural to us.
