New’R, ZAC EuroNantes Gare in Nantes, France by Hamonic+Masson & Associés architects

 
May 3rd, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Hamonic+Masson & Associés architects

This emblematic project in the EuroNantes quarter introduces a gradation in the way people live in the air. The lower floors come in varying kinds of outside spaces with plant bins built into the railings. The higher floors, above any obstructed views, have terraces that become big panoramic screens with winter gardens protected from winds and bad weather. The script is honed and simple. The building reflects an image of great sobriety. Encased in light-coloured metal sidings, the façades catch the light in a constantly changing play of reflected light. Work on the skyline introduces variations in forms and varying ownership of the roofs. This enables different scales of views to people looking at the building from a distance and a diversity of places for the building’s users. The design plays on the idea of movement, backgrounds and multiplicity. Architecture in cinema scope.

May 2nd, 2015 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Midland Architecture

Description:

This 900 square foot off grid retreat, situated on the family’s cattle farm in Appalachian Ohio, blends old and new technologies to create a self-sustaining home. South facing glazing in the living room provides views across a seven acre lake, and is also integral to the passive solar design which generates heat when coupled with the concrete finish floors. Additional sustainable features include a fresh water cistern supplied by a natural spring that runs along the building site; electricity generated by a solar cell array; and spray foam insulated walls and ceilings. The exterior is clad with a Corten metal standing seam roof and burnt cedar siding with Douglas fir columns. The interior layout features two bedrooms and a single bath, along with a great room and kitchen.
