Marine Base Amsterdam Building 27E in The Netherlands by bureau SLA

 
May 3rd, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: bureau SLA

The Marine Base in Amsterdam has been a restricted military area for centuries, located in the heart of the city. In January 2015, the compound has begun a gradual transition towards a more public program. The departure of the designated marine units will be completed in 2018. Building 27E, a former education facility, is the first building on the site to be renovated for a public program. It had recently been dismantled and stripped down to a bare concrete skeleton. In June 2014 The Central Government Real Estate Agency commissioned bureau SLA to present a design accommodating new uses within the building. To host the Dutch Presidency of the European Union, taking place during the first half of 2016, the building was completed in January 2016.

Shelter for an agricultural vehicle in Brandenburg’s countryside.

The Ökonomiebau provides a small shelter for an agricultural vehicle in the urban hinterland of Berlin. This very unusual request offered the possibility to design a building with an extremely low budget, whose goal consists only in protecting its content from the rain.

National Grid’s HQ, National Grid House, on the outskirts of Warwick, within view of the Historic Castle, houses some 2800 staff. It is operational 24 hours a day, every day of the year and is a site which controls and is critical to the power distribution infrastructure in the UK.  National Grids commitment to sustainability in all their undertakings has meant that the brief for a new car park on this site would always lead to something extraordinary – with the car park now finished it has literally come alive.

Modern Mansion in London, United Kingdom by Maciej Grelewicz

 
May 1st, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Maciej Grelewicz

Jury statement:

‘A classic and well-judged representation of Architectural Beauty’

The Jurors expressed the view that the Modern Mansion appeared to be a platonic and archetypically beautiful house with a clear presence in the landscape. It represents a simple solution to structuring the requirements of the family, whilst tailoring a response to their specific likes, dislikes and needs.

Pre-Primary School Centre in Navarra, Spain by Larraz Arquitectos

 
May 1st, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Larraz Arquitectos 

We can talk about the perception of space as an educational proposal on its own, since education is mainly based in human contributions, but also on environmental ones, that affect the development of children’s potential, as well as the interaction between them and the environment. In order for a nursery, with children aged 0-3, to be able to ease or speed the learning process, it needs the building to be capable of suggesting new perceptions to children, and at the same time to satisfy the educators necessities. For these reasons the centre must be:

  • A place of suggestive and easily recognised circulation, with galleries to avoid crowds and show the child the relative position of spaces.
  • A clean and secure place, where neither the materials nor the installations involve the minimal risk for children.
  • A peaceful place, where everything, from the materials to its design, absorb noise and reverberation.
  • A bright place, where it is possible to enjoy as much natural light without sun glare, as the transformation of some spaces to generate shade.
  • A suggesting and stimulating place, where light, colour, sound, vegetation and space are elements that make it easier for the child to learn and play.

Forma Vila in Ravne Na Koroskem, Slovenia by Arhitektura Jure Kotnik

 
May 1st, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Arhitektura Jure Kotnik

Forma Vila is a residential house on the outskirts of Ravne na Koroškem, a small Alpine town close to the Slovenian-Austrian border. The town has an over 400 year-long tradition of iron-making, and the local ironworks have had a significant social-economic influence on the town, its sports and culture. The latter has been especially evident since 1964, when the factory started supporting sculpture symposiums “Forma Viva” for artists from all over the world. There are 40 Forma Viva sculptures located all over town, making it a large outdoor gallery, and it is this cosmopolitan project that has given Forma Vila its design context and served as its inspiration. The name itself, Forma Vila, is a play on the words Forma Viva, but the main resemblance between the art movement and the house lies in form and the materials used.
