Saúl Bistro, Pradera Concepcion in Guatemala by Taller KEN

 
July 15th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Taller KEN

For “Saúl Bistro Pradera Concepcion” we wanted to challenge this typology of the generic suburban shopping center. Because the project is located at a high elevation, on the road to El Salvador, the client wanted the cozy feeling of a mountain house. To achieve this, the project needed to be separated from the commercial center to no appear like a theme-restaurant.

Article source: Architect Show

The site of M6-House is at aresidential area in Kumamoto city of one of the Japanese main city. Generally, the site area in Japanese cities is smaller than European and American.

FUNDACIÓN ESTHER KOPLOWITZ FOR PATIENTS WITH CEREBRAL PALSY in Madrid, Spain by HANS ABATON

‘’It is not a project of some parents for their children, but a work of our society for the future’’

The current centre, granted by Madrid City Hall, is housed in a building from 1950 attached to a development of mainly single storey houses. It is located beside the disused military barracks near the Extremadura highway. Renovated in 1995, it shows inadequate conditions as a school and residence for children who suffer CP. Due to the increasing demand for places and the fact that it was the only specialized residence in La Comunidad de Madrid, an extension with the very best conditions was necessary and addressed the following shortcomings:
– Insufficient space; up to four children per room.
– Inadequate connection between buildings; with access from outdoors, exposing the children to significant temperature changes.
– The fact that there was only one multipurpose hall which did not meet requirements to carry out all the activities.
– Insufficient evacuation routes and emergency systems; when the lift was out of order, the rooms were inaccessible.

Sonnenhof in Jena, Germany by J. MAYER H. UND PARTNER, ARCHITEKTEN

 
July 15th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: J. MAYER H. UND PARTNER, ARCHITEKTEN

Sonnenhof consists of four new buildings with office and residential spaces. Located on a consolidated number of smaller lots in the historical center of Jena, Germany, the separate structures allow for free access through the grounds. Their placement on the outer edges of the plot defines a small-scale outdoor space congruent with the medieval city structure. Its outdoor facilities continue the building’s overall design concept past the edges of the lot. The planned incorporation of commerce, residence, and office enables a flexible pattern of use that also integrates itself conceptually into the surroundings.

Centrexpo Drummondville in Canada by CCM2 architectes + Bilodeau Baril architectes

 
July 15th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: CCM2 architectes + Bilodeau Baril architectes

The Centrexpo Drummondville is the most up-to-date exhibition center in the province of Quebec. The building shows the avant gardist side of Drummondville by showing an actual and contemporary image. The designers intend to show a progressive architecture according to the time of the day, a fully glazed building which reveals the activities and dynamism of the location. Different opacity in the fenestration allows to filter natural light at daytime and makes it look like a glowing lantern at night.

Maison Terrebonne in Montréal, Canada by la SHED architecture

 
July 15th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: v2com

Born from an extreme transformation of a typical 90’s bungalow, the “Maison Terrebonne” is located on a vast wooded plot of land. Although certainly contemporary, the new residence is built on the same foundations as the original house while preserving one of its principal characteristics; split levels. This principle is at the very heart of this building’s new architecture. This thorough building overhaul, in combination with a larger upstairs, was designed in order to meet the needs of a person living alone. Despite a small 1500 square foot living space, the residence offers vast open rooms with an abundance of natural lighting.

Honoré de Balzac high school in Castelnau-le-Lez, France by NBJ architectes

 
July 14th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: v2com 

The principal idea in the site of the high school Honoré de Balzac de Castelnau-le-Lez  was to reconquer space by a better distribution of constructions in order to create a scale of user-friendliness, as well in the buildings as in the outdoor areas. The first action was to reconsider the current landscape, to bring a functionality to external installations thus conveying true space qualities and to create a total logic of circulation within the site. The constitution of this new urbanity becomes the base of a shared and porous space, generator of exchanges comparable with the strategic constitution of a campus. The nature becomes the vector of a new contemporary urbanity organized around inter-connected buildings.
