A dream of the worldÕs most beautiful workspace

Three years ago HŒvard Lund stood in the office of TYIN Tegnestue. The musician from GildeskŒl presented a vision of creating the worldÕs most beautiful workspace on the isle of Fleinv¾r outside Bod¿, in the northernmost parts of Norway. The workspace would be a place where musicians, artists and other creative souls could rent rooms for shorter or longer timespans. The small isle offers a secluded working environment in an area of awe-inspiring natural beauty, surrounded on all sides by wild sea.

FL014 – “X” in Dalsland, Sweden by Förstberg Ling AB

Article source: Förstberg Ling AB

”X” is our entry to a competition for a new type of house for Dalsland, a western region in Sweden. The central theme for the house is the double diagonal divison of the square footprint, hence the name ”X”. This X divides the house into four cardinal points and an equal number of rooms. As one moves around the X, the scenery and room change simultaneously.

Freiluft Barn Conversion in Rüegsauschachen, Switzerland by Freiluft

Article source: Freiluft

How on earth does one come up with the idea of pouring a huge amount of concrete into an Emmental farmhouse? Certainly, one could find several practical reasons (statics, thermal storage mass or the like…). For us, the house needed something rough and immediate, something that could build up its own world in the former barn and hayloft. A concrete object now cuts through all three floors and supports the old roof. In addition to its structural qualities, it holds all the bathrooms and kitchen accommodations, as well as cabinets and storage space. Large windows open up the view into the impressive attic.

Guest Pavilion in Sa Tuna, Spain by This is arquitectura

Article source: This is arquitectura

The assignment consisted in the construction of a guest pavilion as an extension of the main house.

Our first thought was to create a shape clear and simple, a cuboid placed in the middle of the forest, changing as less as possible the surrounding characteristics, as if it had always been there.

El Batel Auditorium and Conference center in Cartagena, Spain by selgascano

 
July 21st, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: selgascano  

El “B” is this long construction, a body, that feeds on the heritage -the continuity- of a site’s treatment: THE Cartagena harbour, which is nothing but a harbour in Cartagena, borderline of the city from the sea.

A very pleasant walk can be designed for the city along this strip, a daily procession following the immutable edge. In fact, this promenade is what we encourage; it is what we insert in the building, in a dimensional continuum that seems to dig out an artificial beach, but is actually a continuity of history, because the old El Batel beach was right here, on this very spot. The harbour is artificial, not the beach. This reclaimed beach-ramp gradually submerges us below the waterline, with the pier’s horizontal line as a constant reference. At this point we cease to belong to the outside world and start to belong to ourselves, ourselves in movement, ourselves strolling, working on the 210 metre scale reserved site for ourselves.

The House by the Trees in Ahmedabad, India by MODO Designs

Article source: MODO Designs

The ‘House by the Trees’ is a gathering and retreat place for a Gujarati family on the outskirts of Ahmedabad set amidst the existing neem, chikoo and amla trees. The brief given was to have a spacious and open place yet addressing security concerns.

Our primary concern was to weave the house layout with the existing trees, resulting into some trees within the house courts and some trees along its edge and thus random location of existing trees defined the extents of the house.

La Diana in Barcelona, Spain by RÄS STUDIO

 
July 21st, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: RÄS STUDIO 

La Diana is the exercise of linking visually, volumetrically and functionally two independent and alienated entities: a commercial space on the ground floor and an apartment on the first floor. The architectural strategy was based on drilling the existing slab to create a large enough opening that would activate the relationship in section between the two floors, and in which the stairs are placed.
