nARCHITECTS has won the 1st prize (Concept Design) in the 2016 International Young Architects Design Competition for the 110,000m2 Shanghai Library East Hall. The competition, which generated over 200 entries, was held by Shanghai Pudong New Area People’s Government, aimed at enhancing Shanghai’s unique cultural influence and promoting qualities of public lives. The library proposal entitled “Library as Home” envisions a library that feels like a large house for all, with a rich variety of environments that Shanghai’s citizens could appropriate as their own. As such, our design is inspired by the intimate connections between people, media and nature in libraries of the ancient world.

Article source: Bromley Caldari Architects PC 

The client, a retired Army captain, asked us to design an urban loft on a steep, wooded, rocky site overlooking the Delaware River in rural Shohola, Pennsylvania.  The house is an escape from New York City and a laboratory for ideas – a place to read and work, pace and think.  A place where indoors and outdoors blur.

The design is made of two intersecting rectangular volumes.

Hip & Gable in Australia by Architecture Architecture

 
October 19th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Architecture Architecture 

Once was a time when a roof was a roof. Mostly it just sat up there to keep the rain off, but more importantly, it looked like a roof. A roof would hold itself in such a way, with its jaunty gables, casual hips and firm ridges, to let the world know that this house is a house. A noble task indeed. Yet, for the most part, a roof would do precious little to enliven the warren of rooms below.

Article source: Studio Benicio

This low maintenance, contemporary four bedroom house located in Concord, Sydney, completed in May 2016, has been designed to showcase the owners’ love for concrete and to provide more space and greater amenity for their family of four.

The clients were after a new contemporary house that would make better use of their existing site than their tired, red brick cottage. The clients own and operate a formwork business, which in turn has garnered them a great love and appreciation for concrete and wanted their new house to feature this throughout.

Lemongrass in West Java, Indonesia by EINSTEIN & ASSOCIATES

Article source: EINSTEIN & ASSOCIATES 

Lemongrass is a casual dining restaurant in Bogor, West Java, Indonesia. Situated near important landmarks like the Presidential Bogor Palace and the famous Bogor Botanical Garden, one of the oldest and largest botanical garden in the world, Lemongrass’s design concept is derived from taking a closer look into Bogor. What many people don’t know about Bogor is that Bogor is only sixty kilometers away from Indonesia’s capital, Jakarta. Bogor or “Buitenzorg” as people would call it during the Dutch colonial era served as the summer residence of the Governor General of East Indies. “Buitenzorg” itself means “without a care” in dutch, mirroring the beauty of Bogor that makes people have no worries and feel safe and secure.

Levitt Goodman Residence in Toronto, Ontario by LGA Architectural Partners

Article source: LGA Architectural Partners

328 Euclid Avenue is an urban infill site in downtown Toronto. Dean Goodman and Janna Levitt designed the house for their own use on a standard 20 foot wide downtown lot. Their intention was to build a small house of approximately 1,550 sq. ft., which would use a pragmatic approach to green building practices. It is two storeys high plus a basement, and utilizes all of this space to maintain a small footprint on the lot. The layout anticipates the changing needs of a family with teenagers and how the house may evolve over time as the children grow up and leave home. Modest in size, the main floor has an open floor plan of approximately 16’ x 55’ with large sliding doors at the front and back. This, coupled with a 12 foot ceiling height, contributes to the feeling of a generous interior larger than its actual size. Large windows allow for excellent natural light throughout the entire house and provide a sense of space, helping to moderate the long dark Toronto winter.
