October 11th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Malik Architecture

Alibaug is a district located 3 hours from downtown Mumbai (50min by ferry/20 min by speed boat). Formerly an agricultural and fishing zone, its proximity to Mumbai has seen it slated for phased redevelopment to alleviate the congestion of the island city. The plot for the house is nearly at the top of a hill overlooking the Arabian Sea and the skyline of Mumbai to the west.

Gomir

Go happens to be the Sirname of the client… mir in Korean means a dragon…so Gomir means Go’s dragon…

The site

Jeju is an Island south of Korean peninsular, famous as a vacation spot. The landscape is dominated by halla mountain in the center and basalt rocks by the sea. The weather is more balmy than mainland which allows for more exotic vegetation growth. The site is located just five minute walk from a famous tourist site called Yongdoam(dragon’s head), which is a basalt formation that looks like a dragon’s head.

Lamoricière school in Paris, France by archi5

 
October 9th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: archi5

The planning and design of this refurbishment and extension project is the result of a very careful analysis of the context. The school faced several problems caused by the overlapping uses of space by several programmes, leading to confusion in traffic flow and hindered visibility of the nursery school and its access from Carnot Boulevard.

X House in Barcelona, Spain by Cadaval & Solà-Morales

 
October 9th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Cadaval & Solà-Morales

The Power of Form

The X House project aims to solve by the definition of a system, language, or even through a unique form, a number of inquiries that rise up when we read the specific given site: how to protect and give protagonism to an impressive pine, that is located on the top of the site, and that makes access and approximation to the house extremely complex from the street; how to avoid deciding between the views to the sea and those to the mountains, and allow both visions in opposite directions; how to neutralize through form the presence of the contiguous constructions, to build up a fake isolation that denies the neighbours; how to double the main views, permitting quality frontal views from the front and the rear of the house; how to resolve so many a priories with a simple movement that answers to all of the previous aims without prioritizing nor explicitly formulating a response to any of them. The form, a unique form, is the result of a long process of search of individual answers to each of those challenges; thus, the form is not an a priori, but an effort to give a unitary response that satisfies each of the questions rose up in the design process.

Housing and health care complex Eltheto in Rijssen, The Netherlands by 2by4-architects

Article source: 2by4-architects

In the small town of Rijssen 2by4-architects designed the new healthcare and housing complex ‘Eltheto’ for elderly people. Until recently elderly people were seen as a group that functions outside of modern society and are only in need of care. The contemporary healthcare centers and housing for elderly people are still designed according to his idea. Over the past decennia this resulted in a range of introvert buildings where the main focus is healthcare instead of the quality of life itself.
