Boreal Primary School in Québec, Canada by CCM2 architectes + Onico Architecture

The new Elementary School of Boischatel was built on the old municipal baseball field, beside the soccer field, and is surrounded by a wonderful wooden area. The building regroups twelve classrooms, two kindergartens, a daycare, a library, a computer laboratory, few administrative offices and a gymnasium which was designed to be doubled, if needed. The steel structure of this two storey school was conceived to receive twelve more classrooms and an extension of the gymnasium. The school was designed to allow the access of the gymnasium (and its services) to the citizens of the municipality after the working and teaching hours. The proximity of the school within the wooden area and its creek creates an inspiring environment for the students and the staff, giving the impression of a “tree house/classroom”.

The concept of the project was originated from the same idea that gave the name to the store. The symbolic and playful spirit of SANTAS (y no tan…) DE LA MODA -in English FASHION SAINTS (and not so)-, enables the fusion of historical and contemporary elements of architecture, art, photography and fashion.

Eva’s Phoenix in Toronto, Canada by LGA Architectural Partners

LGA Architectural Partners (LGA) has created Eva’s Phoenix, a neighbourhood within a building. Eva’s offers safe and inclusive long-term shelter, education and skills training to marginalized youth aged 16-24 in transition from homelessness to independent living. Within two, heritage-designated warehouses leased from the City of Toronto, the architectural team created a central, interior community faced by ten clean-lined and contemporary townhouses that are awash in natural light from a ceiling of new skylights, whilst securely enclosed by the original brick walls. For up to one year, each of the 50 residents enjoys his or her own bedroom, within a “house” comprised of a communal living and kitchen space and two bathrooms with up to four others. These houses face onto an internal street – which serves as a gathering place for the Eva’s community. The layering of spaces builds comfort by giving the youth the choice to decide their own level of integration.

House Gele Lis in Hague, The Netherlands by GAAGA studio for architecture

Love at first sight

The clients asked several architects to come up with a vision for the design of their house. We made a small draft model which they fell in love with right away.

In the leafy neighbourhood of Ypenburg, an outer suburb of ​​The Hague, most plots on Gele Lis street had already been built on. There was one long, narrow plot still available. While it was located on the water, it also had buildings at a distance of only five metres on both sides – so sun, unobstructed views and privacy were hardly a given.

Orsino Building, Uxbridge High School in England by AndArchitects

The brief was to create a building that would provide a space for teaching music and drama and to celebrate and inspire students’ performance. This was a complex planning procedure as the site sits within the Green Belt and teaching was to be maintained during the demolition of the old block and new construction.

Inhabiting 6 converted shophouse units at the confluence of Singapore’s historic Chinatown area and the CBD, MOD’s own design studio employs the same key principles which govern its approach to design—typological relevance, a disciplined material and tonal palette and an ‘essentialised” concept.

H+L House in Biarritz, France by GARDERA-D Architecture

 
June 11th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: GARDERA-D Architecture

The project is composed of two familial houses joined together on the first floor with covered garages and swimming pools.

The projected houses are set back on the north side of the land and, given the unevenness existing of the street side, their presence from the public domain remains very discreet. The project is based on three parallelepiped volumes in the first floor oriented North-South, between which lower volumes are intercalated in the ground floor.

Project Floor Area Ratio Game in Ulsan, South Korea by ON Architecture INC.

 
June 9th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: ON Architecture INC.  

Prologue

The most important issue when planning the design of the house in 2014 was like “FAR Game: Constraints Sparking Creativity,” which was the theme of the Korean Pavilion in the Venice Biennial, 2016. This land is a class 2 general residential area, so an architect can build a building with a 60% the building?to-land ratio and a 200% floor area ratio. It is common to design a three-story building with a 60% building-to-land ratio and to design the fourth floor with a 20% building-to-land-ratio. However, the land area (142m2) was so small that 20% of the area was only 28.4m2. It was important to find alternatives to look for a maximum floor area ratio to meet what the building owner required without any loss.
