Unique ‘Arts and Crafts’ facade for residential tower De Verkenner

A new residential tower completed on Churchilllaan in Kanaleneiland, Utrecht, will give a big impetus to the development of this typical post-war reconstruction district. The new 50-metre-tall building, designed by Mei architects and planners, acts as a gatekeeper to Kanaleneiland. The tower contains a mixed programme of housing: 71 private sector rental dwellings in the upper portion, 15 dwellings for autistic youths, and 9 live-work units in the base of the building.

Denorte Prologue

A building raises all complexity from the idea above the look.

The lines, size or closeness to people that walk around.

It is impossible to notice the volume, magnitude and so seeing it like a symbol.

Bracketed Space House in Austin, Texas by Matt Fajkus Architecture

 
December 1st, 2016 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Matt Fajkus Architecture

Incorporating the site’s dynamic landscape into the daily life of its residents, the [Bracketed Space] House is designed as a meaningfully-framed procession through the property with nuanced natural lighting throughout. A continuous and jogging retaining wall from outside to inside embeds the structure below natural grade at the front with flush transitions at its rear facade. All indoor spaces open up to a courtyard which terraces down to the tree canopy, creating a readily visible and occupiable transitional space between man-made and nature.

Skyhole in Shiga, Japan by ALPHAVILLE Architects Co.Ltd

 
December 1st, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: ALPHAVILLE Architects Co.Ltd 

The building is an atelier and residence for a couple of painter and a designer. It is a  space to spend their whole day with their only son and will be used to regularly exhibit works as a gallery  and host a party. Therefore, the atelier and the residence will be used multi-dimensionally by shifting boundaries depending on usages. In order to house various activities, extra air volume and spatial intonation  were sought. By distorting the inside of one big volume, we searched for a vibrating space that responds to the weight of activities.

Silverhurst in Cape Town, South Africa by SAOTA

 
December 1st, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: SAOTA 

This home is a contemporary reboot of the more classical architectural styles, surrounding it in one of Cape Town’s exclusive gated estates in the winelands suburb of Constantia. Set in a tailored parkland garden, the facade is Georgian inspired but the modern aspect of the look is driven by a dynamic of recessed and projecting panels and cubes that create courtyards and terraces that articulate and add interest to what is a highly organised shell. Inside, it’s no less organised but it becomes a story of sculpted space and secret luxury. VIVID Architects prepared the initial concept. SAOTA and ARRCC were then appointed to refine & develop the design and oversee the project to completion.

Wooden house in Fischamend, Austria by ARCHITEKTI mikulaj &mikulajová

The house is floating over a slightly steep land, with a beautiful view to the forest at the end of a small village in Lower Austria. The inner space of the house is organised around an atrium, that creates the core of the structure. This smart way of space arrangement allows the sun and the daylight to enter the spaces the whole day long and also offers interesting views to the garden and the inner courtyard from the rooms.

House Y1 in Massif Central, France by Werner Sobek Group

The fully detached, 750 m² single-family home is located not far from the town of Yssingeaux in the Massif Central region of France. The ground floor of the house nestles against the slope. Although it has very few openings to the outside world, the interior rooms on this level are filled with natural light via the patio – a generously dimensioned glass-enclosed inner courtyard. The swimming pool, various guest rooms, the study and the owner‘s archive are situated on the ground floor, while the living quarters, dining area and bedrooms are all accommodated on the transparent top floor of the house. From the design of the patio to the diverse coalescing views and accessibility options, Y1 bonds with the landscape in every way.

“Grand Lognes” training site in France by Architecture Patrick Mauger

The restructuring and extension to the Lognes site for the Ministry of the Interior aims to make it the main Grand Paris training center.

A “blue” gallery has been created that acts as the project’s backbone and provides the distribution needed for the restructured buildings and extensions. It permits a separation between visitor, trainee and personnel movements and ensures the readability of the centre, with administrative premises to the south and training premises to the north.

ETIE in Flanders, Belgium by Edouard Brunet and François Martens

Attracted by the large garden and the tranquil environment of this house located a few kilometres away from Brussels, the new owners wished to carry out works to make it brighter and to open it up on the outside.

As they were ambivalent about the aesthetics of the existing house, part of the project was also to redesign the architectural expression, outside as well as inside, while keeping the original spirit. One of the childhood friends of the new owner put him in contact with architect François Martens who asked his colleague Edouard Brunet to team up with him.
