Q2 APARTMENT in Saint Petersburg, Russia by MODOM

March 19th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: MODOM

Contrast is integrated into the structure of the apartment. It shows the ambiguous and unstable condition of dark and light parts, while the body of the apartment remains intact. There is no actual feeling of contrast thanks to large dimensions and proportions weight. The dark parts represent depth, and the light ones produce expanse, which allows the inner space to balance its parts between each other. Lots of engineering requires ideal spaces.

Oakley House by Benjamin Waechter, Architect

March 19th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Benjamin Waechter, Architect

A pre-existing 28’ x 28’ foundation was used as a starting point for the Oakley House. Using this footprint constraint, the house was built anew on top of this existing foundation. To accommodate 4 bedrooms the second story cantilevers out in the front and back of the house, providing the upstairs with adequate room while simultaneously creating covered outdoor space on both ends. From the side elevation, the house profile takes on the form of a “T.”

The Norwegian painter HaraldSohlberg (1869-1935) stayed in the Rondane mountain area for several years to do studies for his most famous work, Winter Night in the Mountains. The motif was a summation of sketches from several standpoints. The most recognisable position was close to where the viewpoint platform is built today.

PROMENADE 1 K. Street and Square in Alicante, Spain by Joaquín Alvado Bañón

March 18th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Joaquín Alvado Bañón

The shape of the main street and the square in “Pilar de la Horadada“ were very irregular, with a lot of sharecropping walls, patched parking and twisted lines of trees. We thought about a walk besides the sea, a pedestrian path between sand, palms and coconuts.

Cultural Center in Katowice, Poland by PA+U Rafał Mazur

March 18th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: PA+U Rafał Mazur 

The cultural center is located in the Dab district of Katowice in Poland –  an area known for mines and industry. The concept of the building links two  important aspects of the site. A green space connection is made from the  northern end traditional Silesian street to the southern border. The edge  between the building and green space is invisible. The roof in the plan of a  ‘Z’ shape rises from the ground level to two floors. The sectional form is  inspired by mines, as all of the programmatic utilities are located  ‘underground’. The building at the street level is integrated to promote  urban interaction.
