Borgo Merlassino in Alessandria, Italy by deamicisarchitetti

Located amongst the Gavi vineyards, right in the heart of the La Raia farm, lies Borgo Merlassino. A rural resort combining traditional agricultural activity with new accommodation facilities: La Raia B&B, the La Raia Foundation headquarters, warehouses, laboratories for the Waldorf school and a reading hall. The genesis of the refurbishment and transformation of the former hamlet starts from the pre-existing structures. It was promptly decided that, rather than the actual buildings, it was the character and quality of the relevant spaces between the structures that needed ample renovation. The design statement envisaged contamination and contradiction as a strong structuring identity of the Site. The use of rammed-earth walls, the choice of traditional colours of buildings in Liguria and the reinterpretation of traditional building techniques have jointly attributed a new character to the hamlet. The senses of time, the scale, as well as the balance between old and new were the real motif of the design.

This private commission for a single family home is located in a wooded residential area in Belgium. The house is a response to strict legislations on implantation and surface occupancy, as well as a municipality desire to promote housing in the neighborhood.

The Sports Pavilion in St Petersburg, Russia by Horomystudio

Article source: Horomystudio

The sports pavilion with an area of 113 m2 was built in the suburbs of Saint Petersburg in 2015. The project is notable not only for its elegant architectural forms but also for unique building technologies used during its construction process.

The architects were faced with a task to design a complete sports facility within an existing suburban landscape and limited space. As a result, the pavilion became part of the landscape and the landscape became part of the pavilion: only 30 m2 of the forest grounds were allowed for construction with all of the trees preserved and integrated into the interior of the building.

Single House Re-Using a Former Water Cistern in Madrid, Spain by Valdivieso Arquitectos

 
March 25th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Valdivieso Arquitectos 

Building a single-occupancy home over a former water cistern was the starting point of the project. The site, subsequently altered over time, reached its final configuration circa 1955. It has two levels, facing south, and has remained unaltered since then. The site is part of a low-density suburban environment, which belongs to a development model distinctive of peripheral areas, characteristic of the first third of the 20th century as the summer stays residential areas in the mountain range of Madrid. The site contains typical scrubland vegetation, increased with non-native but suitable species, conditioned by the region´s dry continental climate (very warm summers and very cold winters).

Östermalm’s temporary market hall in Sweden by Metsä Wood

Article source: Metsä Wood 

The distinctive new building in Stockholm’s Östermalm is a temporary market hall that was built as a temporary space while the old market hall is being renovated. What nobody expected was the tremendous popularity of this “wooden box”, which ended up winning Sweden’s most prestigious design award.

The old market hall, built in 1886, in Stockholm’s Östermalm district is known for the prestige its history carries among its committed customers. In 2012, this well-established rendezvous point in Stockholm’s finest district faced a critical need for a complete renovation, and the city invited bids for the refurbishment project. The entrepreneurs of the market hall needed to relocate for a couple of years.
