The House of Prajna in Gyeonggi-do, South Korea by studio_GAON

 
April 28th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: studio_GAON

<The House of Prajna> seems like a vessel heading for the woods, embraced by the forest, with the pentagon shape of building site reminding of that of ship. On the bow of ship shape, a persimmon tree over hundred year old branches its arms toward the large sky with hollowed trunk.  Although this house is a result of intentional design, I feel like it is already been completed by thousands of interactions of invisible components. Every time I visit, I feel like appreciating the work of someone else’s.

Habitatge M11 in Catalonia, Spain by FFWD Arquitectes

 
April 27th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: FFWD Arquitectes  

In this flat situated in Barcelona’s Eixample, our starting point was an unfortunate period renovation from the 1980s.

At first glance, it seemed like the ’80s had erased all the original and distinctive elements of the space, which dates to 1875. But after some light “cleaning”, we uncovered some of the original elements, and realized they could be the soul for the new space. These elements were traditional Catalan hydraulic cement tiles, and exposed structural elements of the building, including exposed brick walls and the wooden beamed ceilings.

Light-House in Hsinchu, Taiwan by Shen Ting Tseng Architects

Article source: Shen Ting Tseng Architects

Light-House is located in Hsinchu County, Taiwan. This multi-storied residential building block is designed in consideration of common Taiwanese terrace style houses. This project seeks to rethink the fundamentals of this particular housing model and intends to reinvigorate its underlining idea as “Lian-dong” (describing a continuous housing block) and “Tou-tian” (terrace houses describing buildings with roof spaces open to the sky) in the design approach.

The Inside Outside House by jantzen studio

 
April 27th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: jantzen studio 

The Inside Outside House is a prefabricated, modular, movable, building system. It consists of a series of segments of various sizes made of wood support frames, and clad with concrete composite materials. Each of these prefabricated segments can be trucked to nearly any site where they are placed onto the ground with little site preparation needed. The segments are bolted together into many different kinds of configurations, depending on the specific functional and/or aesthetic requirements. These segments (shown in white) make up the enclosed and insulated portion of the Inside Outside House. In this design, the insulated segments have been connected together after they were shifted side by side into a staggered configuration. The spaces in-between the staggered segments were filled in with large glass panels. In addition to the white insulated segments, a series slotted green painted wood segments have been added onto both ends of the white enclosed portion of the house. These segments are used to extend the living space of the house into the outdoors. All of these segments shade the deck spaces below, and some of them have places to sit or lay built in. Others form partial enclosures for vegetation that is incorporated into the outdoor living space. Solar panels have been added to two of the white segments in order to generate heat and electricity from the sun for use in and around the house. This specific small Inside Outside House was designed for two people as a weekend retreat.

Sydney Park Water Re-Use Project in Sydney, Australia by Turf Design Studio

Much has been achieved over the past two decades in transforming the Sydney Park site from its industrial and landfill legacy, into 44 hectares of parkland and a vital asset for the growing communities of Sydney’s south east.

The project is part of City of Sydney’s Decentralised Water Master Plan (2012-2030), specifically focused on reducing the City’s potable water demand by 10% before 2030. It is the City’s largest water harvesting project to date, built in partnership with the Australian Government and seizing a once in a lifetime opportunity to use what was essentially an infrastructure project to breathe new life into the park – as a vibrant recreation and environmental asset for Sydney.

TREC – Training Recreation Education Center in Newark, New Jersey by ikon.5 architects

 
April 27th, 2017 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: v2com

The City of Newark has long struggled to come back from the brink since losing its industrial base in the 1950s, which resulted in decreased city revenue, increased unemployment, deplorable housing conditions and ultimately fueled the 1967 riots. Since that time, the city has attempted several “comebacks” floating a host of broad-brush proposals for renewal many of which failed. Today cities are trying a different tact, finding seeds of hope and renewal in incremental rather than sweeping-change, embarking on small scaled, targeted projects led by architects capable of bringing to these ‘wicked problems’ fresh ideas and innovative approaches in the hope of jumpstarting communities in need.

Double Duplex in Toronto, Canada by Batay-Csorba Architects

 
April 27th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: v2com

The Double Duplex was created in response to the cities growing need for alternative housing models due to the rising cost of urban real estate and the need for urban densification within Toronto’s established residential neighbourhoods. A proliferation of high and mid-rise condo’s have densified the urban core and serve as the predominant model for entry level home ownership within the city. However, very few new low rise infill models of densification or affordable living within Toronto’s sought after historic residential neighbourhoods have been developed.

Shitang Internet Conference Center in Nanjing, China by AZL Architects

The trend of modernization and urbanization in rural development inevitably requires the introduction of new types of functions. As multi-functional buildings with large space, the Internet conference center is one of them. Taking the commune auditorium and the vegetable greenhouse as the original form, Shitang Village Project in Jiangning tries to reconstruct public buildings in a rural context. Efforts have been made to rapidly build a system through industrialization, bringing in the technology of pre-fabricated super slender column structure, selectively applying suitable technology to eliminate the existence of weakened and materialized buildings and restoring the primitive feeling of rural villages, hence having conducted a rejuvenated construction practice in an extremely short construction period of time in rural villages.

VanBerlo has set up their second office in the former Ypenburg air base. This building with a rich history underwent a massive renovation, and VanBerlo set out to find the perfect way to mix the building’s historic style with an iconic and contemporary interior. The result is a stylish and minimalistic atmosphere, surrounded by honest materials such as concrete, plywood and felt.

The building was designed by famous Dutch architects Jan Brinkman and Leendert van der Vlugt. Built in the 1930s, Ypenburg airport was clearly ahead of its time. A minimalistic example of Modern Architecture, a style that zeroed in on light, air and space.
