‘Court Yard House’ Residence for Fernando Family at Moratuwa

IT is a strong belief of the architect; that architecture is there to capture the ‘moods’…. ‘Moods’ that are pronounced by the lifestyle of the users of space; ‘moods’ that are dictated by the surroundings on which the building is to be erected… ‘Moods’ that last the lifespan of the building. Thus the design defies the boundaries of ‘modern’ and ‘traditional’; and instead concentrates on a language to reflect the ‘real’ ‘moods’ noticed by the architect, on their merits.

The principle concept established for this project at the Mandarin Oriental in Macau, is to embody tranquility at its essence through capturing the elements of nature.

The Tree is symbolic of being protective, sheltering and being able to nurture life-giving energy. The idea is to allow its occupants to enter a nature-inspired living space, where they could feel relaxed and safe within the comfort of their own home.

Walking through the entrance door reveals a welcoming feeling of freshness with leaves are blowing and swaying towards the ceiling.

Qatar World Cup Memorial by 1week1project

“More than 400 Nepalese migrant workers have died on Qatar’s building sites as the Gulf state prepares to host the World Cup in 2022.

The grim statistic comes from the Pravasi Nepali Co-ordination Committee, a respected human rights organisation which compiles lists of the dead using official sources in Doha. It will pile new pressure on the Qatari authorities – and on football’s world governing body, Fifa – to curb a mounting death toll that some are warning could hit 4,000 by the time the 2022 finals take place.15 February

Stirling House in Sydney, Australia by Mac-Interactive Architects

Article source: Mac-Interactive Architects

A new-build house replacing two very narrow 2-storey weather-board cottages on the same lot but in a very derelict stateAfter much discussion with Heritage it was felt that it would not be possible to restore them to anything other than museum status as they could not be brought up to current BCA standards. It was also felt that they were not of that much interest and very little original fabric existed. A fairly unique opportunity presented itself to insert a contemporary building into a heritage conservation area – allowing for a future reading of this particular period of Sydney’s development.
