Cabin Sjusjøen in Norway by Aslak Haanshuus Arkitekter AS

The cabin is located in Sjusjøen, one of Norway’s most popular areas for cross-country skiing. The plot is sloping towards the west overlooking the Gudbrandsdalen valley.

In the area, it’s a rapid and concentrated development of cabins and you have strong winds coming from the north. This makes it important to try to provide shelter from the wind and to establish private spaces close to the building.

More than a light rail station, Sound Transit’s University of Washington Station, designed by LMN Architects, adds multiple facets to the urban fabric at the intersection of Montlake Boulevard and Pacific Street.

Knitting together transportation modalities from bike to bus to pedestrians to trains, the multi-disciplinary design of the 156,000-square-foot station creates a unified mobility solution at a problematic street intersection, one of the busiest in Seattle, and provides a unique gateway to the UW campus through its above and below-grade experiences.

The third house. A house opened to sky at Dongducheon.

It’s a house of three members of family, father drives a truck and delivers mattresses, mother is convalescing at home after the cancel surgery, and a daughter who always care about family, a middle school student. Building a 40-square-meter of single house was possible for this family. However, we decided to build a three – story building with a parking lot for a truck and a rest place for mother. For she likes reading books with daughter. Also, we made a small but solid kitchen space for the mother who cooked on the outer floor because it was not ventilated. I needed a design to satisfy space such as a parking lot, a family room, 2 rooms, a toilet, a kitchen, a study, and small yard.

Grand Canal Street in Dublin2, Ireland by Scullion Architects

This project involves the transformation of a Georgian three-storey terraced house near Dublin’s Docklands from three bed-sits into one light-filled ‘upside-down’ house with a new black tower in the garden.

The original Georgian property comprised three floors of accommodation, which had been converted into separate studio bed-sits on each floor.  Most of the original decorative plasterwork and joinery features of the home had been lost, with the exception of the main hallway and staircase, which were reasonably intact.

Passive Townhouses in Vallastaden, Sweden by Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture

Article source: Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture

In Linköping’s new district of Vallastaden, Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture has built a townhouse that achieves a passive house standard with four apartments. The townhouse consists of four volumes that differ in shape and facade patterns. The relationship is visible in the colours and expressions of the facade plates. In addition to each apartment there is a small courtyard with bicycle storage and a garden with patio and storage room for outdoor furniture. The storage buildings have green roofs and the façade is treated with an environmentally friendly wood protection and is grayed out over the years. The apartments have a flexible third floor with high ceilings that can be used as studio, playroom or additional bedroom. Each apartment has its own theme that is seen in the kitchen and bathroom furnishings.
