House Komoro in Japan by KASA ARCHITECTS

 
September 29th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: KASA ARCHITECTS

This is a one-storey residential house for a family of four―a couple and two children―and is built in Komoro City, Nagano Prefecture. With views of Mount Asama to the north and the Yatsugatake Mountains far south, I planned a simple one-storey house with a shed roof and an open space in the south side. This property of about 450 ㎡ is in the shape of a flagpole, where the pole part accounts for 80 ㎡. I decided to start with the plan for the environment―the placement and arrangement of the building and the design of the environment for the remaining 370 ㎡. I thought about how to achieve a design for people’s lives to flourish as they interact with the site, carefully identifying each factor individually, such as the flow of movement to the grandparents’ house located next door, handling the cold down wind from Mount Asama, preserving the view on the south side of the Yatsugatake Mountains in the distance, the connection to the outside of the property, the flow of air, etc. Then, by creating a configuration akin to a courtyard by arranging the building in an L-shape and arranging trees on the other side that had a slope to create a lush environment as well as a flow of movement to the grandparents’ house, I aimed to create an environment connected to real nature where families could connect.

Rehabilitation of a Traditional Housing in Moscoso, Spain by LIQE arquitectura

 
September 28th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source:  LIQE arquitectura 

Usually a project involves creating something out of nothing; but sometimes, as in this case, it is about strengthening something that was already there.

A long stone building, with a powerful balcony facing the valley, to the north. An elevated shed leaning on a warped and also excessively long wood beam, with three facades made out of stone and one out of wood, to the south. The Cruceiro Grande, where three religious processions become one, is out on the street, to the east. And an impressive Hórreo supported in stone beams under which one enters the garden, to the west. And then, in the centre: the “eira“, the work yard, sheltered from the wind, the main focus of everything around it.

Renovation of protected houses in Bruges, Belgium by atelier tom vanhee

 
September 28th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: atelier tom vanhee

Two disused protected 17th-century houses on a brewery site in the centre of Bruges were rebuilt into a family home (with existing retail and storage space).

The different window types and added rear façade are witness of successive conversions over time. The design starts from the changes the building has undergone and adds a new layer. The historical and authentic parts are kept or reconstructed and, where necessary, structurally improved. These elements (doors, fireplaces, beams, stairs) go hand in hand with new elements, and remain legible.

Valley in Amsterdam, The Netherlands by MVRDV

Article source: MVRDV 

In twenty years, the Zuidas area of Amsterdam has developed into the Netherlands main international business centre, which resulted in a reduced focus on residential interests. The development of Valley is part of the city’s ambition to correct this by transforming the area into a more liveable and complete urban quarter, welcoming large amounts of residents and additional public facilities to the area over the next decade.

Phoenix Real Estate Office in Frankfurt, Germany by Ippolito Fleitz Group GmbH

SOLOWEST

This ten-storey office building opened at the beginning of the 1990s as the ‘Lahmeyer-Haus’. Like many buildings from that time, the increasingly sophisticated demands of tenants and Frankfurt’s oversaturated business real estate market quickly rendered the building no longer competitive. It stood empty for many years until project developer Phoenix Real Estate recognised its attractive position in Frankfurt’s Westend and decided to completely gut and revitalise the building. Since Phoenix itself rents office space in the building for its Frankfurt branch, the brief was simple: “to build the best house in the respective market segment”. Our studio was commissioned to design the entrance lobby and the access and supply cores for all storeys, as well as interior architecture for two rented offices.

The object is in an apartment house placed in the downtown of Kyiv. The project objective was to convert untenantable upper floor space to a loft. Work on heat insulation required dismount of peripheral brick partitions and boarded ceiling. Original arc roofing structure that appeared underneath was left open in the interior space for several purposes. It was used to mount new partitions and as a basis of new elementsextending current interior space and providing more comfortable ways to the newly createdaccessible roof area. Roof arc structures also allowed separationof different functional zones in the interior.
