Cabin at Troll’s Peak in Sunndal, Norway by Rever & Drage Architects

 
March 29th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Rever & Drage Architects

This is first and foremost a robust heavy duty cabin with high quality traditional craftmanship and local timber being used throughout. It uses a traditional layout with a connecting row of different buildings styles and with materials and techniques corresponding with the different indoor functions, the weather conditions they must handle as well as their representative status. The choice of durable materials and a construction to fit the terrain, will give the cabin a long life, even in the harsh weather conditions of this high mountain valley. The cabin is practically designed for an active outdoor family with a lot of equipment and the need for a comfortable place to change before and after hiking and skiing trips and not the least to provide a drying area for wet clothes. The building is further tailor-made to transport wet hikers from the glassed-in garage via a laundry area, bathroom and kitchen to a soft sofa by the fireplace with a wide panorama window.

Museum Romeins Halder in Sint-Michielsgestel, The Netherlands by RESET ARCHITECTURE

Article source: RESET ARCHITECTURE

Reset Architecture transforms a barn at a historical estate into a museum.

This project addresses a current theme of the changing countryside that is no longer mainly used for agriculture. Within this context of change the intention of this project originated from preservation; sharing the past of a beautiful location. The architecture of this adaptive reuse project does not react to history in a nostalgic or thematic way, it uses a more context sensitive approach. The interior has changed to a level in which the old and new merge but still are, without hierarchy, visually present. As a result the new setting evokes a self-evident presence that relates to the characteristics of the natural scenery.

Illinois Creek Ranch in Alma, Kansas by el dorado inc

 
March 29th, 2018 by Sanjay Gangal

Located on a historic farmstead in Wabaunsee County, Kansas the Illinois Creek Ranch was designed for a family of five, their extended family, friends and guests. The goal was to forge an emotional bond between people and a unique landscape. Structures were purposefully straightforward in their vernacular appearance with a focus on innovative, nuanced detailing and contemporary material selection. The architect began by studying the site – history, topography, soil and hydrological conditions, seasonal wind and sun patterns. The positioning of the house was a response to these conditions. Parts of the home were positioned parallel to topography to accommodate single story program, other parts were turned perpendicular to allow multiple story programming. The structures strategically blocked wind to allow comfortable outdoor spaces while breezeway windows were positioned to allow passive cooling inside. The massing of the house was positioned to take full advantage of seasonal solar heat gain. Movement throughout the home was carefully choreographed to engage a range of landscape experiences.

Article source: Samuelov Studio

Development of a new design concept for the largest home design retail chain in Israel. The design emphasizes the size of Betili and its leadership in the field, though, among other things, a trendy and confident substantial language of concrete and raw wood and an open and very spacious planogram. A sculptural “Avenue of the Accessories” structure, accompanies the customers from the entrance into the depth of the store, thus emphasizing the unique Betili interdependence between furniture and matching accessories. The store’s centerpiece is the “Betili Studio” where customers can take an active part in designing various furniture, selecting finishing materials and planning furniture settings fitting their home. This customer empowerment allows the retailer to take over the home design domain and strengthen its position as THE dominant signature in that domain.
