SOS Children’s Village in Tadjourah, Djibouti by Urko Sanchez Architects

 
February 12th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Urko Sanchez Architects

A medina for children designed according to extreme weather conditions and community traditions.

CONTEXT

We were approached by SOS Kinderdorf for a compound of 15 houses for children, to run their family-strengthening programmes, as they are an international NGO committed to caring for children, orphaned or in need, and to provide them with a permanent home and family. The project was to take place in Tadjourah, on the coast of Djibouti, in the horn of Africa, not far from where the hottest temperature ever was recorded. This very hot and dry climate will be a determining aspect in our design solution.

A new structure is towering up on an elevation in central Uppsala. Skandion Clinic is Scandinavia’s first cancer clinic for treatment with proton therapy. A patient hotel with 86 double rooms has been constructed adjacent to the clinic. Seven counties have collaborated with Akademiska Hus to realise this unique collaborative project. LINK won a parallel assignment in 2007 with a proposal where the plot’s buildable area was fully utilized and Uppsala was provided with a new signature building with a secure and high-tech interior. The clinic opened in 2015 and will treat approximately one thousand patients every year.

Ochoco Air Hangar in Hillsboro, OR by TVA Architects

 
February 12th, 2017 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: TVA Architects

Located at the Hillsboro Airport, this contemporary aircraft hangar provides both administrative functions and maintenance facilities to house the owner’s private fleet of planes. The facility is capable of storing three, full-size business jets and is designed to showcase the planes, which are each graphically unique. Tall glass windows provide visibility into the main hangar, as well as glimpses of the aircraft from the road beyond. Dark-grey ribbed metal and smooth white composite panels articulate the main structure with a roof form that was inspired by a jet’s wing shape. The entire structure sits on an elevated stone podium, which has been planted with native grasses and deciduous trees. Secure parking just off the access drive is bordered by heavy plantings and is articulated by a bold, yellow, operable gate that glides open on a hidden track.

In the 20th century the city management started to reconstruct the city centre twice but the reconstruction has never been finished.

Finally the reconstruction was finished a few years ago: we started to work on it in 2008 and it was finished in 2014.

You can see a long street in the city centre, on the one side of the street there is the old part of the city centre and on the other side there is a 20 storey building with the shopping center, which was built in 1970.

Casa Caldera in Patagonia by DUST

 
February 12th, 2017 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: v2com

The off-grid house is located in a remote landscape on the southwestern bajada of the Canelo Hills in Southern Arizona’s San Rafael Valley, two hours southeast of Tucson and 15 miles north of the US/Mexico Border. Siting is balanced between the prospect of the open range and distant mountains toward the west and refuge from those who may venture across the landscape. Proximity to the border and immigrant related foot traffic led the owner to request an impenetrable structure.

Sakura in Wien, Austria by NERMA LINSBERGER ZTGMBH

Article source: v2com

The property is located on a very busy intersection. An intervention in the existing building use class made possible better light and sun exposure conditions. In order to defuse the “T”-point, a V-shaped courtyard has been cut into the building. The paths to the access balcony and the ancillary areas are concentrated around the courtyard.

A passage in the East creates a pedestrian connection between Brünnerstraße and a park in the West.
