A space for thinking, a living room, a party place….with a wall of light…

The given condition of the space was a two-story light steel frame structure glass box that is an annex to a brick storage building. It measures 35m from north to south and 5m from east to west.  The west side is attached to the exterior brick wall of the storage and the east side faces a parking lot.

Korean Dandelion Farm in Chungcheongbuk-do, South Korea by Archihood WXY

“Evoking a sense of space“

The building is hidden by the silver-grass forest. The whistle of the wind from the sliver-grass leads the way. At the end of a leafy and curved pathway, you can meet a heavy wooden door. The black bamboo welcomes you through the spaced wooden fence, and natural sunlight filtering through the louver, enveloping the dark entry space. Walking through this entry space, you can see the peaceful front courtyard, covered with Korean fine soil.  Experience of dark and light: this is what triggers your emotional experiences in this space. When you enter the front courtyard, you can see the forest valley through the wide open Farm café. The sense of nature from the valley stays in the farm a while, and passes through the wooden fence.

Play is about finding ones place in the world and making sense of that world. We have created a plan that seeks to juxtapose two different worlds. The man made and the natural. The plan has an urban exterior and a wild natural interior, each space contains a different type of play.

University of Waterloo School of Architecture in Ontario, Canada by LGA Architectural Partners

The University of Waterloo School of Architecture at Riverside is a conversion of a 100-year-old silk mill located in Cambridge. The existing building is 85,000sq/ft over three storeys and is a steel and wood structure with mill deck flooring. The building was funded by donations from all levels of government as well as the local business community. A unique aspect of the project was the modest budget coupled with an extremely aggressive timeframe: $100/sf and one year to design and build, ready for occupancy. We developed a fast-track schedule to allow for the design and building activities to happen simultaneously. The project was delivered on time and on budget in September 2004.

MEMORIA – A Sicilian Chruch in Cinisi, Italy by OFL Architecture

 
September 28th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: OFL Architecture 

The project for the new Redemptoris Mater parish complex of Cinisi (PA) was conceived as a little campus of religious faith. It is a singular entity of comfortably inhabitable spaces intimately related to each other. The strong spiritual impact of the complex arises from its dialog with its historical, artistic, and social context, and from the holistic deployment of architecture with fundamental building practices for people of today – as it does in the synergy between music and biology, between agriculture and sociology, and between psychology and religion.

Quinta do Carvalheiro in São Francisco da Serra, Portugal by GSMM architetti

 
September 28th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: GSMM architetti 

Located in the Serra de Grandola, the plot is characterized by cork oaks and pines forest that dominates the accentuated slope of the landscape on a promontory facing west.

The settlement of the new construction is strictly related to the topography and the surrounding landscape. The compact shape that characterizes the house, aims to limit human intervention in the uncontaminated area. The spaces are organized in a single floor around a square patio that through transparent surfaces and lodges opens to the landscape.
