Casas La Punta in Mexico by Grupoarquitectura

 
October 1st, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Grupoarquitectura

West of Mexico City in nearly one hectare site, the two houses were designed on top of a beautiful canyon with wonderful views. The design is based on two parallel stone finished walls that enclose the house blocking it on the north façade and opening it up to the south with a very light metal frame that integrates the façade along with the garden.

The steel structure that spans a 14 meters width in an orderly rhythm houses the bedrooms and the rest of the living spaces, enclosing the services between the back walls.

Metabolon by pier7 architekten

Does an artificial landscape need to be planted and thus, appear to be as close to a natural landscape as possible? No. To the contrary, this project shows awareness of the sites origin. It is a waste dump covered with a black skin that plainly offers plenty of space. The concept has been developed by FSWLA Landscape architects and pier7 architects as a collaborative proposal and the realisation of this highly original cultivation of garbage within the perfect world of Bergisches Land has been completed. Several temporary sites with diverse purposes have come into existence alongside, around and on top of the cone of garbage since. For example: learning places that are flexible for different programs, cafés, seminar- and production sites as well as exhibition venues for prototypic structures and various events more that have not been thought of, yet.

Introduction

Amidst a bustling locality in New Delhi, on the corner of a residential street a landmark constituting of tangled electrical cables, pole and a ficus tree is unconsciously replaced by an architectural reflection of a family. This reflection is the B123 residence that efficiently cuts out the prevailing chaos and weaves a complex family arrangement together through its spatial fluidity.

The new Chapel of Saint Albert the Great, in George Square, Edinburgh, built for the University Chaplaincy and friary for The Order of Preachers, the Dominican Order, was completed in late 2012. This new chapel is situated in the garden of one of the townhouses and replaces the old chapel which was located on the upper floor of the adjoining townhouses. The new garden chapel not only provides a space for peace and worship, but also increases capacity and improves accessibility. A new access was created from Middle Meadow Walk, and, along with the siting, form and appearance of the building, the chapel is announced to the many that use this popular route.

MEDIA LIBRARY ST PAUL in Ile de la Réunion, France by Peripheriques Architects

 
September 29th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Peripheriques Architects

The new media library structures “the gateway” of Saint-Paul city. Its location choice comes as an urban answer to the need of a strong identity in the landscape scale. This building has to become a cultural landmark, through information and training, as well as a visual one through its architecture. Located between sea and mountain, the building shape is a 34m side cube. The
idea of an urban landmark is enhanced by a strong aesthetic vocabulary of the volume related to the ”book” media: façades are structured by a stack of wavy lines reminiscent of the book pages pattern. Those “pages” are solar shading systems vibrating around the construction.
