The bicycle bridge across the Sava River in Slovenia by Dans architects

 
January 20th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Dans architects

DANS arhitekti was founded in 2004 by Rok Bogataj, Miha Dešman, Eva Fišer Berlot, Vlatka Ljubanović, and Katarina Pirkmajer Dešman. Their approach leads to architecture that conceives the physical environment, space and culture that we live and work within; architecture that fosters social contacts, acts therapeutically, improves living culture and expands our imagination. Their architecture originates from the reflection of the physical, social, and symbolic context of the location, where it is embedded, and the content it is intended for. DANS arhitekti are most fond of projects with a salient social dimension, such as schools, kindergartens, hospitals, buildings for people with special needs, and, in recent years, they are engaged in the wondrous realm of sacral architecture.

Article source: B.U.S Architecture

As rapid industrialization and urbanization made people flock in the cities, housing spaces have developed by focusing on quantity rather than quality. In this background, most citizens are used to saying that “My dream is to go down to the quiet countryside and live there by building a house if I earn money.”

Malin+Goetz Madison Avenue in New York by Messana O’Rorke

 
January 20th, 2016 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Messana O’Rorke

Our client, Malin+Goetz entrusted us with designing their third NYC store. Even though their visual identity is minimal with unified color-coding, they requested us to create a space that accommodates to the Upper East Side demographics by providing a traditional customer experience. Therefore it was crucial to have a layout that is clean-cut so if someone entered the store they would understand its functionality immediately. We were also focusing on using materials that are familiar for the potential customers in the neighborhood.

Entrances to the Tatra Mountains National Park in Zakopane, Poland by 2pm Architekci

 
January 20th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: 2pm Architekci

The Park’s entrances are situated in a close vicinity to parking lots and public transportation stops where tourists start their visit to the Tatra Mountains National Park. They incorporate checkout desks, a tourist information (combined with a small bookshop), information boards, communications routes, resting spots, and toilets. The current buildings are more than a dozen years old, built in the Zakopane architectural style. They do not meet the requirements needed to serve touristic traffic. On the Park’s premises there are 17 such entrances, of different sizes. The competition work comprises the design of two of such entrances, Białego Valley (smaller) and Kościeliska Valley (of higher capacity), with the possibility of adapting them for the rest of the entrances.

Madison Central Public Library in Wisconsin by MSR (Meyer, Scherer, & Rockcastle)

 
January 20th, 2016 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: MSR (Meyer, Scherer, & Rockcastle)

The reconstruction of a worn, 45-year-old, 95,000 square-foot library has resulted in a completely reimagined building. A 25,000 square-foot expansion encloses the formerly open entry with a glass atrium space and adds a partial third floor. New flexible spaces and technologies recognize evolving community needs with dedicated areas for children and teens, public meeting rooms, a making space, and a high-tech media lab. The design also incorporates a number of sustainable design strategies, some of the most prominent of which include solar panels and a green roof.

Pool House in New Delhi, India by 42mm Architecture

 
January 17th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: 42mm Architecture

Conceived as a ‘pebble in the grass’, this house acts as an extended entertainment center to a previously existing home which was built 20 years back. It has been designed in congruence with its context by using the same material palette nonetheless managing to express the shift in time of both buildings by virtue of its design. The breathtaking landscape of the site just reinforced the idea, to create a design that blends remarkably with the site it sits in.
