Set on the Etampes plateau with a view as far as the eye can see across the natural landscape and farmland, the new Lycée d’Etampes secondary school is the first building in the built-up Paris area visible from the Beauce plain.
The building stands on the boundary between the two regions and itself has that dual status as a kind of built-up landscape, despite its large scale.

The project involved the adaptive reuse of Pumphouse Point into a wilderness retreat. The existing heritage listed, art-deco style buildings – ‘The Pumphouse’ and ‘The Shorehouse’ – were constructed in the 1940s as part of Tasmania’s hydro electric scheme and are positioned within the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. The two buildings had been unused for over twenty years before works began.

LHM kindergarten in Tokyo, Japan by Moriyuki Ochiai Architects Inc.

Article source: Moriyuki Ochiai Architects Inc.

We designed a playful and exciting environment suitable for implementing this kindergarten’s educational policy, which focuses on bringing up children that can think, learn and act independently. In doing so, we created a space in which seasonal changes can be experienced to the fullest by taking advantage of the glass windows facing a garden outside of the building to usher the great outdoors into the kindergarten.

Anguilla House in Fukuoka, Japan by Shinji Yoshida

Article source: Shinji Yoshida

This project is a family house for five people. The site is long and narrow like the bed of an eel, and is 20 feet by 60 feet.

The location was initially difficult to maximize sunlight because of the surrounding houses that crowded the site. However, through a series of steps a resolution was achieved. First, three parking spaces were created at the owner’s request.

Cordoba-ReUrbano Housing Building in Mexico City, Mexico by Cadaval & Solà-Morales

 
April 16th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Cadaval & Solà-Morales

The building is located in the Colonia Roma, a historic neighbourhood in the central sector of Mexico City. La Roma developed in the 19th century as one of the first extensions of the city centre, with an orthogonal grid of large houses inhabited by the upper classes of the city. With the emergence of suburban life in the 50s, la Roma decreased its population throughout the second half of the 20th century, getting to its worst with earthquake of 1985. Due to the location of la Roma in what once was Lake Texcoco, the subsoil is highly muddy, so seismic waves are amplified; thus, during the strong earthquake of 85, la Roma was one of the more affected areas of the city: many buildings collapsed, and many of those which resisted were abandoned by its inhabitants because of their structural damage or because of the fear that the buildings would not resist another earthquake. The neighbourhood became deeply deteriorated, with high levels of insecurity and abandoned buildings, until its recent re-emergence as one of the most active areas of the city, filled with art galleries, small restaurants, cafés and young people occupying again its streets and public areas.

It started from the concept to make a Sushi restaurant that provides truly real Japanese Sushi made by highly skilled Sushi Chef.
Prioritizing guest’s higher satisfaction rather than achieving more seats, Removed the existing upstairs to make a high ceiling one-story, Composed only 8 counter seats main-building and a new-built annex. By separating the main-building and the annex by the pond, The annex private-room is emphasized its value as visible but inaccessible.
