Doppelgänger in Saint-Molf, France by KARST architecture

Article source: KARST architecture 

Located in a tiny village facing salt marshes on the French Atlantic coast, this wooden house extension is a modest holiday home and a writer’s retreat. The client’s idea for this project was born several years ago when saving a few old, massive oak beams from the demolition of a neighboring farm. The idea appealed to us but it was all we knew when we first visited the site.

Unità residenziale al servizio dell’ albergo diffuso di Paluzza in Italy by ceschia e mentil architetti associati

Article source: ceschia e mentil architetti associati

On a small piece of foundation land where once stood a rural building a small residential unit was built, part of a larger project by the name of “Albergo Diffuso” in the municipality of Paluzza. The project, promoted by the Tourism Department of the Italian region of Friuli-Venezia-Giulia and co-financed by EU funds, aims to promote the re-use and the recovery of a building heritage which is left to deteriorate with the objective of promoting a new sustainable form of tourism capable, at the same time, of revitalizing highly depopulated areas. The ambition is to increase the welcoming capacity for tourists not thought big hotel infrastructures but thanks to small units widespread on the territory. The desired outcome is a touristic offer not only at a low-cost hospitality but also the possibility, offered to guests, of choosing an alternative holiday/break solution to the mainstream offer.Inside, the house offers a domestic geography which is intimately linked to the morphology of the site. A black space with a small window becomes the place for cooking and eating, the big frameless glass window is the place for conversation, while a low window allowing the continuation of the outside landscape sculpts a small wooden intimate alcove for the night.

Cest La Vie in Alibagh, India by Atelier Design N Domain

A Second homes are about creating an oasis from the hectic pace of urban city life. A site blessed with vegetation and seasonal lake provided the perfect setting for this project. At the entrance were a clump of trees that provided for a grand entry and also created just the necessary buffer for the house from the Main Street. The driveway snaked its way past the canopy of trees to the entrance/arrival court where you are received by a curved stone wall.

Dyson Campus Expansion in Malmesbury, England by WilkinsonEyre

Article source: WilkinsonEyre

At the time that WilkinsonEyre was invited to design this new factory and headquarters building, Dyson was one of the fastest growing companies in the UK. The new development therefore needed to embrace an extensive range of uses and be built and occupied in a rolling programme. Our original masterplan for the overall site optimised the layout of a range of functions whilst incorporating flexibility for future expansion.

The design created an exciting yet economical space with an undulating wave form roof which ‘floats’ above the trees, disguising the bulk of the factory.
