Casual House by Christopher Megowan Design

 
July 21st, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Christopher Megowan Design

A home as casual and easy going as its residents. Low maintenance, no frills materials were used to create a cost effective yet compelling extension to the rear of a family home in Newport. The middle of the home had long suffered from substandard foundations, this extension replaced this middle section with a new kitchen, living, dining, bathroom and laundry. In addition, existing spaces were extended and converted into a second living area, and two new bedrooms. The brief was to create something low key, beachy, contemporary but still respect the character and materiality of the weatherboard cottage at the front of the property. Room to kick a ball, connection to the outdoors and ease of moving surfboards and sporting equipment from the rear of the house to the car in the front was top of mind for these clients.

ADULT EDUCATION CENTRE AND CHILDREN’S PLAYGROUND BUILDING in Torrelavega, Spain by 1004arquitectos

 
July 21st, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: 1004arquitectos

The building responds to the social demand of the city of Torrelavega of an independent space to accommodate adult school Caligrama, which until now lacked its own headquarters. Located in a deteriorated urban area, the new centre intends to be a connection with the rest of the city, serving as an integration element. A new iconic building that embodies a claim of the city is created as a reference for the future of the region.

Torre del Baró refurbishment in Barcelona, Spain by Jordi Farrando architect

Article source: Jordi Farrando architect 

A castle which is not a castle.

The Torre del Baró was built around 1904. It is located in one of the crest lines of the Collserola hills and, despite its residential origin, seems to be a fortification of historicist style. It is visible from much of the northeastern sector of Barcelona and has views over the city and the interior valleys of the metropolitan area.

Brooklyn Desks in New York City by STUDIOSC

Within an empty 10,000 Sq. Foot Ground floor space, STUDIOSC was commissioned to envision a creative co-working office in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The concept was to create a refined working environment using materials that would normally be considered trash. The old exterior factory windows that were replaced,were re-purposed to create dividing walls and become interior light sources in the main open desk & conference room area.  Working with Roguebuilt, we were able to amass off-cuts of OSB boards that would typically be thrown out or recycled,  cut and dyed them on site and created most of the of the delineating elements within the space; entry ceiling, kitchen dividing beam, back wall mosaic wall, kitchen wall accents, and reception desk.

Retrospect Vineyards house in Windsor, California by Swatt Miers Architects

Article source: Swatt Miers Architects

Retrospect Vineyards, a 20-acre plot in the Russian River Valley, has been producing pinot noir grapes and selling them to nearby wineries for fifteen years. However, when the new owners bought the property in 2010 they knew they wanted to have a greater involvement in the winemaking process. The result was a modern home designed to function as both a family retreat and a working vineyard, respecting the privacy of the residents without hampering the functionality of the land.

NEMO house in Warszawa, Poland by Mobius Architekci ul.

 
July 21st, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Mobius Architekci ul.

The Nemo Building is located within a picturesque landscape of the Masuria lakes, on a plot with direct access to the lake via a private beach. The building was designed to complete the land form on the spot, as well as to take full advantage of the impressive lake panorama. The house is a rectangle of 50m in total length, which nearly covers the length of the plot available. The internal layout of the house is generally focused around the view of the lake, which is why all rooms face the water. This was one of the main assumptions for the design. In contrast, from the side of the access road, the house appears as veiled and enigmatic. Apart from the glazed entrance and the window illuminating the kitchen, the front wall is nearly devoid of windows and features the entrance gates for the car and boat only. In turn, the lake-side wall was designed as fully glazed.

THE BLOEMENDAAL TOWN HALL in Netherlands by NEXT architects

Article source: NEXT architects

The new Bloemendaal Town Hall opened its doors on 25 June 2015. The realisation of the new town hall is the coping stone of a process set in motion with the ‘uniting’ of the municipalities of Bloemendaal and Bennebroek in January 2009. With these central premises the municipal organisation, which now encompasses the civic centres of Bloemendaal, Overveen, Aerdenhout, Vogelenzang and Bennebroek, has also found its physical expression. One address, one face, one identity.
