The location alone of this single family home in Rechberg, with a clear view of the surrounding is quiet spectacular.

The property is located on the slope of a green meadow. A floating design and the use of natural materials using concrete, copper, glass and wood as structural material characterize the single family home. Besides the structural members that establish contact with the ground, the rest of the house is constructed out of wood.

Frederiksbjerg School is the first new-built school located in the center of Aarhus, the second largest city in Denmark, in approximately 100 years.

The new school, which also houses a daycare facility and a youth club, is built on the site of former school, Sct. Annagades School. For decades Sct. Annagades School was a well-established gathering place for the local community. This lead to a vision of the new school building supporting the old memoir.

Nieuwdok NDSM in Amsterdam, The Netherlands by Moke Architecten

Article source: Moke Architecten

The site of NDSM Nieuwdok site is a former ship dock area at the waterfront of Amsterdam Noord in the Netherlands. The area is currently largely derelict and used by early adapters, like Greenpeace, Red Bull and MTV. The remaining monumental industrial buildings allocate small creative businesses and workshops, while new bars and hip festivals indicate the potential attraction of the area. They are signs of what is about to happen, as in the coming years the area will be transformed into a diverse urban area, with housing, office space, hotels and the like, all with a staggering density. Surrounded by the IJ River and some remaining docks, the water has a strong impact on the site and provides beautiful views.

In December 2007, along with five other architectural firms, OMA was invited by Chelsfield deputy chairman Sir Stuart Lipton to consider the potential of the Commonwealth Institute site. OMA’s proposal sought to save the grade II* listed building by reinjecting life into the modernist monument, the new home for London’s Design Museum, while retaining its distinctive copper roof and parabolic form. OMA with Allies and Morrison were the architects responsible for the design of the refurbished structural shell and external envelope of the building. The project required a close working relationship with Design Museum interior architects, John Pawson.

Barton Street in Queensland, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

 
December 8th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects 

The Barton Street project involved the conversion of a turn-of-the-century character home in Bardon into a twenty-first century contemporary family home. The design of the house focused on maximising the sense of volume, space and connection to the environment in a functional but also poetic way. A rich palette of stone, timber and concrete offers a modern counterpoint to the historic fabric that drew the clients to the house originally.
