Mandal Slipway Housing Complex in Norway by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter AS

 
May 4th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter AS 

The “Slippen” housing complex is located in the district of Lower Malmø, at the exit of Mandalselva in the Mannefjord. The town of Mandal has some very special qualities with its location where the river meets the sea, and a stunningly beautiful timber architecture. Lower Malmø on the eastern side of the river has historically been an industrial area, but this is currently under development and will in future become a vital part of Mandal’s vibrant city life. The project is iconic with its unique roof forms and minimal window details, while at the same time evoking the character of the local surroundings, taking its inspiration from the unique character of Mandal: the encounter between timber construction and the open sea. The architecture is steeped in local vernacular building traditions, but with a new and modern interpretation.

Lyon Part-Dieu in France by MVRDV

MVRDV’s design focusses on integrating the Lyon Part-Dieu shopping complex to its surrounding urban fabric and hopes to allow everyday life to permeate through it. The street is not only extended through the building via an East-West walkway but also over it by stairways and escalators that take users up and over the complex. MVRDV pushed to reconnect the shopping centre with the facilities in its immediate context. A rearrangement of terraces on the south façade provides a direct connection with the library, and the restructured main east entrance provides access to visitors arriving from the Part-Dieu train station; which is also due to be renovated. The public realm on the street level will extend onto the shopping centre itself, and by rearranging the rooftop, technical facilities and carparks. MVRDV created a series of large terraces and green spaces that are accessible directly from the street. Restaurants, bars and cinemas all spill out onto the terraces but are also independently accessed through covered escalators that navigate around and over the building.

British designer David Price, who works out of offices in Provence and on the Côte d’Azur, together with his Anglo-French-American team, has completed a show-stopping ‘Glass House’ for a British client on the Cap d’Antibes. The plot is a rarity in the area; not only facing the sea-front, but also east-facing and on an almost-flat piece of land, covering 2,000 sq m. The views from the new property extend from the snow-capped southern Alps alongside Nice to the coast towards Monaco and Italy, as well as, in the near foreground, the bay and headland of La Garoupe.

Blue Bottle South Park in San Francisco, California by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

The first of several Bohlin Cywinski Jackson-designed cafés to be completed for Blue Bottle, this new 1,200-square-foot South Park location transforms the street-level storefront of a former Kohler warehouse into a light-filled, deliberately minimal interior space. The design reveals the site’s inherent beauty by stripping away the frivolous and unnecessary, elevating the most essential attributes of the architecture, such as original brick walls and heavy timber support columns, and enhancing the visible connection to the bustling SoMa streets.

An apartment by the sea in Sanremo, Italy by mag.MA architetture

 
May 4th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: mag.MA architetture

The restoration of an old house attic in front of the sea becomes an opportunity to reconsider the entire living space. The common areas of the lounge-dining room on the first floor are extended to the upper floor. The use of a double volume space allows to amplify the entrance of natural light opening sea views and sky scenarios. Light permeates an essential interior. A space designed using surfaces and volumes. Volumes that identify functions, white and smooth surfaces that reflect and absorb reverberations of sky and sea. The staircase, made of iron and wood, is heavier at the bottom and dematerializes along the climb. Shapes and materials are reduced to the essentials. They waive any decorative function attracting the gaze on the fullness of the void. A void that is sometimes occupied by natural elements, such as a courtain of green leaves, or by evanescent figures projected on a bare wall.

Open living in deep space

A large family table measuring 1.5 x 3.0 m forms the center of the apartment. This open, double-height space is dominated by the wide outlook to the treetops outside, where well accustomed squirrels and birds frequently show up. The dimensions of the table alone allow family members to do be occupied with different activities around the same table – chatting, eating, doing homework – without interfering with each other, in the same social situation.
