House on the Horizon near Poznan is a typical family house that has \”something more\” than a typical project. In a small surface of the building with double garage, designed T-shaped, there is comfortable space for a family of three or four. Living area (135 m2) consists of kitchen, dining room, living room, two bedrooms, a guest room (optional third bedroom), toilet, bathroom . A small area is organized very comfortably – day and night zones do not interfere with each other, and individual rooms with large glass panels give a sense of space and contact with garden.

Toh Crescent in Singapore by HYLA Architects

 
September 8th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: HYLA Architects

In most typical residential developments the living spaces face central communal areas. This blurs the distinction between private and public spaces and results in a loss of privacy for the residents. In this design, we have sought to properly define the public and private spaces and make a clear separation between them.

867 De Bougainville in Québec, Canada by Bourgeois / Lechasseur architects

 
September 8th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: v2com

The project is a complete remodelling of a ground floor apartment in a building dating back to 1924, located in Quebec City’s Montcalm neighbourhood. The clients, a young family, decided to convert the ground floor into their main residence. The space was remodeled to make it airy, bright and more functional. The living areas are spread out through a large linear area crossing the building from east to west. Now the light flows in more freely. During the demolition work, a brick common wall was seen as an element of interest to be kept and enhanced. At the other extremity, a wall of original wooden boards was also kept to provide a touch of warmth to the bedrooms. This wood was also reused for the washroom counter.

Botel in Amsterdam, Netherlands by MMX architecten + Jord den Hollander

“How can you improve the look of the hotelboat, in order to make it fit in with the dynamics and creativity of the NDSM wharf, in the north of Amsterdam?”

This was the question that Botel-owner Sandra Chedi put to MMX-architecten (Arjan van Ruyven & Michiel van Pelt) in 2011. Together with filmmaker and architect Jord den Hollander they developed a bold plan. Five 6.5 -meter-high hotelrooms in the shape of huge toy letters make up the silhouette B O T E L on top of the ship. The white hotel boat has been given a cheerful crown, referring to the chimneys of the ocean liners that used to come off the now derelict NDSM slipways.

The building project is located on the border of the “Valley of Giaroni” that lies under the road of Ramestòn in the municipality of Marostica, north-eastern Italy. The concept is designed to achieve a low environmental impact by being recessed, semi-underground and close to the hill. The design theme is “Masiera”, a typical local drywall reinterpreted to give life to the livable wall concept.

Kaohsiung American School Design Concept in Taiwan by MAYU architects+

Article source: MAYU architects+

An international school strives to nurture its students to become world citizens through a community of teachers and classmates of various nationalities as well as diverse educational methods. The Kaohsiung American School (KAS), as such an entity, has thrived for more than twenty-five years by attracting talented teachers and students alike even though it has negotiated with limited physical presence because of relocations and use of older facilities. By leasing the former Victory Elementary Public School site from the Kaohsiung City government, KAS finally has a permanent home at the current site not far from the Lotus Pond, a famed tourist attraction. The new school built on this site is well thought out and curriculum based to better meet the needs of all students.

Baltar School in Paredes, Portugal by CNLL

 
September 8th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: CNLL

Located in the middle of a school and sports complex, this building differs from the other schools as it offers a wider programme, catering for primary and middle school children. This exposed concrete building with scattered windows is characterised by a simultaneous­ly sober and contemporary language. It has clear and objective lines, free from superfluous elements, where the careful relationship between solid and empty spac­es creates a pure composition and a symbiotic harmo­ny between the parts and the whole.

PROTOTYPE CENTER OF ALTERNATIVE ALPINE TOURISM in Metsovo, Greece by FParchitect

 
September 8th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: FParchitect

The Prototype Center of Alternative Alpine Tourism, located in Lake Springs Aoou Metsovo, is designed to give a boost and a new market in tourism, both as regards quality of services provided, and the variety of options. It is a center that can meet and reconcile the needs for recreation and relaxation (hotel unit – bungalow, restaurant, pool building) with the sport (sports center, boats port) and culture (convention center). These uses and the way their organization, make the band a unit that can operate autonomously, as is 20 km from the town of Metsovo. The composition blends with the natural environment, which is particularly beautiful, and topography, not by challenging existing habitats (forest, lake). For this reason,are been used principles and technologies of energy and bioclimatic design such as green roofs, the use of photovoltaic (main roof, blinds) and geothermal energy. Finally, the extensive use of materials such as wood, stone and glass contribute to reconciliation between the Centre and its environment.

ART DISTRICT XIII in Delhi, India by Architecture Discipline

 
September 7th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Architecture Discipline 

Life in Delhi’s urban villages is defined by the two conflicting forces of exploding unregulated development and a dense inherited city grain. Defined by archaic laws that relied on a periphery demarcated by a red string (or Lal Dora), these ancient settlements are fast transforming into the city’s hip areas as cheap rents attract young entrepreneurs with big ideas and limited budgets. Adding to the mix is the general sense of lawlessness that pervades these areas, whether it is poor regulation of building bylaws or safety for establishments against theft and arson. Vibrant during the day, strong opaque shutters are drawn across show windows by night, further lending an air of desolation as the traditional residential population has slowly gentrified and moved out.
