Duomo Suite & Spa in Catania, Italy by SCANNELLA ARCHITECTS

Article source: SCANNELLA ARCHITECTS 

It is a building in the Baroque center of Catania, redesigned as hotel which tells Sicily cinematographically. The original core, dating back to the ‘500, was rebuilt after the 1693 earthquake afterwards it was subjected to several changes, the last one date back to the post war period, has changed the intended use until the final one known as hotel. This has been possible to read through the works of restructuring that showed the various layers. The works have tried to bring back to life the original structure while maintaining or reviving the system of vertical connections. The concept wants to communicate an image of Sicily especially told through the suggestions from cinema. To make it possible, representative icons have been used and even decorative apparatus, the quotes, the lighting design, using a contemporary architectural language dedicating to each space a cinematographic work. The work has required a careful research of the significant elements of the “story” told, without neglecting to re-use some original elements of the building, reinventing use and function. Each room is characterized by objects, shapes and colors taken from the movie to which is dedicated in order to allow the customer to soak into the atmosphere that we want to tell. Particular attention was dedicated to the relationship between the plant system and the environments, aiming to its complete integration, reaching almost the invisibility. The charm of the interior benefits of the “popular” atmosphere that represents an extraordinary urban landscape. Eleven Rooms were obtained, some of which are configured as suites, dedicated to a particular director and a small Spa.

The site is along the small river, crossing the bridge from the road. It is a unique site with a wild taste which distinguishes the site which is neatly divided like a housing complex. It is not summarized in white or black, and the brick and the terrace are used to harmonize with a unique site by using a rustic H-type steel, and it finished in the stately building as if it had been there for a long time.

A modest, low cost retail and tasting pavilion aspires to help transform the image and create a stronger public experience for a mid-market winery on a main road into Niagara-on-the-Lake. Replacing a portable classroom structure, this project creates a high quality, permanent building for the rebranded Lakeview Wine Company’s operations rebounding from a bankruptcy. The building is placed tight against the vines to create an authentic vineyard experience, with a building form derived from local agricultural buildings and sheds.

Bremer Punkt in Germany by LIN

Article source: LIN

Like many German cities, Bremen is confronted with an increasing housing shortage and a growing demand for affordable housing.

In response to this, the largest Bremen Housing Association, GEWOBA, has prudently taken on a supplementary extension to their existing 45,000 plus housing stock. In 2011, within the framework of the competition “ungewöhnlich Wohnen” (unusual living), five exemplary lots from a postwar housing area were chosen to investigate the adaptability of the area. The proposals considered contemporary demands for affordable and flexible housing that could offer manifold inhabitant configurations. These housing areas in the Gartendstadt Süd of Neustadt Bremen, offer generous green open areas formed by homogenous four-storey housing blocks.

Ensae Paristech Campus Paris-Saclay in France by CAB ARCHITECTES (CALORI AZIMI BOTINEAU)

Article source: CAB ARCHITECTES (CALORI AZIMI BOTINEAU)

When we discovered the immense sky and the plateau devoid of physical constraints we sought to capture the landscape by a simple form and by an abstract architectural language.

The proximity of the site to the edge of the woodland led us intuitively to the primary material as it seemed necessary in this country-side site to place the building lightly on the ground. To achieve this we chose to define the project by a steel exoskeleton.
