The house is located on a residential block overlooking the Edogawa river in the city of Noda,Chiba. It is a scenic environment with views in the west that opens through a green park and a riverbed that expands beyond. The site is a relatively large section of a recently developed land lot, where the surrounding areas are still largely vacant. The client, a young couple in their thirties, wanted the expansive views of the Edogawa river, a terrace will-integrated with the living room, and a small cafe space on the second floor.

Salvaged ring in Nha Trang city, Vietnam by a21studĩo

Article source: a21studĩo

Salvaged ring is a coffee shop located along side with a highway in the countryside of Nha Trang, Vietnam. After years working, the owner, which is a local carpenter, has a big stock of scrap wood that he wishes to give another life to them rather than leaving it fall into oblivion. Therefore, an idea that a building salvages these pieces of wood has come to life.

A CLUBHOUSE FOR VVW BLANKENBERGE in Belgium by BURO II & ARCHI+I

 
June 29th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: BURO II & ARCHI+I

For years now, the Vlaamse Vereniging voor Watersport (Flemish Aquatics Association) was in dire need of a new clubhouse. The club received a 27 year concession for the lot at the end of the Oude Wenduinse Steenweg and the Bevrijdingsplein, between the former sluice dock and the harbour channel.

The basic idea for the new clubhouse is the intertwining of water, land and tourism. Not only did they focus on the layout, but also the functionality of the building, which will become a public attraction as well as a haven for hikers.

Mirador Building in Madrid, Spain by MVRDV

 
June 29th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: MVRDV

Sanchinarro is a residential suburb on the north east edge of Madrid. Surrounded by highways, with views towards the Guadarrama Mountains.

The building was developed as a reference point for the city extension and region at large, as a counterpoint against the massive uniformity of the surrounding blocks. The 22 level building acts as a frame for the distant landscape. The large lookout at 40 metres above the ground provides inhabitants and neighbours with a commu­nity garden and a space from where they can contemplate the skyline. The proposal opens domestic architecture to the new city environment and to its surrounding territories.

CDA REFORMA 108 in México City, México by DCPP Architects

Article source: DCPP Architects

Cerrada Reforma 108 is a residential project located in San Angel, in the south of Mexico City. The plot is rectangular and its dimensions are 10 x 20 meters.

The concept of the house parted from the idea of positive and negative space, seeking to create a game of counterparts to define and virtually contain the exterior space.

Article source: Cassion Castle Architects

Cassion Castle Architects were commissioned to design this multi-purpose structure next to a former farmhouse in Hampshire.

SAI Project in Gangnam-gu, Seoul, Korea by Moon Hoon

 
June 29th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Moon Hoon

It was a unique case; in the construction of a new building next to the client had made many illicit choices, causing the district government to intervene and to suggest a radically altered space. In between the existing building site and the newly built building, I built a structure that could be used as a green house.

The Underground Extension of the Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis in Hague, Netherlands by HANS VAN HEESWIJK ARCHITECTS

Article source: HANS VAN HEESWIJK ARCHITECTS

THE HAGUE: On June 28th, after a construction period of just two years, the new Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis in The Hague opens its doors to the public for the first time. The surface area of the famous Mauritshuis museum has been doubled – although there is hardly any indication of this fact above ground, thanks to a complex and spectacular feat of engineering which was completed on schedule and within budget. The dramatic yet subtle intervention has solved the logistical problems facing the constantly busy, much-visited museum, while also resulting in a bright and welcoming entrance space characterised by an ingenious and striking use of daylight. The renovation of the existing Mauritshuis was also a part of this project.
