Old Farmhouse in Munich, Germany by Peter Haimerl

 
December 7th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Peter Haimerl 

The oldest property in Alt-Riem. The farmhouse, consisting of a house and a stable, was built around 1750. In 2013 the Schusterbauerhaus still retained parts of the housing construction and remains of the stable. Two residential units were installed in this historic structure. The concept of the architect Peter Haimerl concept is based on two premises: retention of the historical building substance and at the same time the introduction of a spatial innovation. It connects the residential house and the stable using a spectacularly inserted concrete cube.

Narrow House in London, England by FORMstudio

 
December 7th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: FORMstudio

The narrow deep plan of this tall terraced late 19th century building was ill-suited to its previous use as offices, with escape distances pre-determining the necessity for the centrally located lift and stair core that sub-divided the floor plate into small inflexible work spaces.

This configuration was, we recognised, ideally suited to the creation of residential space though, with naturally-lit rooms of domestic scale located to the front and rear, and support spaces located inboard around the retained central stairs and lift. A use further suggested by the domestic style of the Dutch-gabled brick front elevation.

House HC in Wondelgem, Belgium by Wim Heylen

 
December 7th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Wim Heylen

The terraced house is located in a housing project from ’58 in Wondelgem, Belgium. The project has the typical combination of identical row houses with alternately mirrored ground plans. All of them have a single-storey extension and a semi-private road at the back of the plot connecting the various garages and garden storages. Over the years many residents have filled up the open space between the extensions with verandas and secondary buildings, and by thus have lost relationship with the exterior space.

House in Yamanoi, Japan by WARO KISHI + K.ASSOCIATES/Architects Co., Ltd

 
December 7th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: K.ASSOCIATES/Architects Co., Ltd.

The residence was built on a site that looks up Himeji Castle in a historical district in Himeji, Hyogo.

The client is a couple, who lives on their own. The residence was newly planned as a place to spend their life together after their children became independent. The site is an irregular shape. A small river runs on the west side, and on the other side of the river is a residential district. On the east side, Himeji Castle can be viewed beyond at the end of the front road that has a trace of historical streetscape. The design condition was very challenging, as the site was in a irregular shape, and I proposed the facade which shows the respect to townscape of the historical city. Additionally, beyond the river on the west side, it contrastingly showed a stretch of ordinary suburbanscape.

Article source: Arquitectura Sergio Portillo

This apartment project occupies the lower level of a building on Mexico City’s west side. It generates a dialog between the newly constructed building and its environment, interweaving the project with its landscape and unifying indoors with outdoors.

The design process inserted targeted elements that produced a series of specific, outdoor spaces whose function is directly related to the apartment’s indoor activity.

The Street in Mathura, India by Sanjay Puri Architects

 
December 7th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: v2com

Taking a cue from the old city streets of Mathura city in India where this project is located, this 800 room students’ hostel creates organic spaces.

Designed in 4 level high, 5 linear blocks, the built spaces snake across a wedge shaped site twisting and turning along their length. Sitting adjacent to repetitive hostel blocks on the east and west these new hostels within a large university campus create individual spaces within a discernible identity in each part of the layout.

A Multigenerational Space in Olemps, France by CoCo architecture

 
December 7th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: v2com

The project is located near the city center of Olemps, a “new city” of 3,500 inhabitants, located on the outskirts of the agglomeration of Rodez. The site is located in a peri-urban area made up of architectural objects, built in the ’70s and ’80s. The municipality wanted a strong architecture, thus the building was designed as a monolith, set back from the main street of the village to assert itself and propose a vast landscaped space in connection with the existing sports facilities.
