Norway`s national music museum (Extension, restoration) in Lade, Trondheim by LINK arkitektur

Ringve – Norway`s National Music Museum is located on a hill on the Lade peninsula near Trondheim with great views of the cultural landscape and Trondheimsfjorden surrounding the site. The buildings, situated in a typical homestead arrangement, were erected from 1740 to 1952. All of the buildings are worthy of protection. The Ringve National Music Museum has a national mandate to conserve and convey both music and musical instruments. The museum is fitted with a new extension as well as rehabilitation and refurbishing of the existing buildings. The extension is located outside of the stead enclosure as a “black box” for temporary exhibitions. The design of the building is in part inspired by the resonance boxes usually featured in many musical instruments. From the media library, you will find beautiful views of the botanic garden surrounding the estate. A new common entry area with a reception, museum store and café connects both the permanent and temporary exhibitions. In addition, the old banquet hall has also been upgraded and refurbished. One of the main goals of the project was to secure an environmentally friendly design throughout, and the new extension is Norway’s first museum building built in compliance with the passive house standard. A new elevator was installed to secure accessibility for all visitors in the new museum complex.

This property is located in a closed suburban neighborhood , 30 minutes distance from the city of Buenos Aires , Argentina . The construction limits at the front, back and sides which imposes the neighborhood regulations result in a very sparse cityscape with a  high natural character. The background of this lot in particular overlooks a lake with a water surface of 24 hectares, which is the great articulator and protagonist of the urbanization.

Mathers Avenue by Frits de Vries Architect Ltd

 
January 31st, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Frits de Vries Architect Ltd

A centralized kitchen on the main level acts as the hub of daily conventions and social gatherings for this single-family house set on a generous south-sloping lot. The grade has been manipulated to allow a walk-out side garden from the lower floor suite while preserving the garden relationship to the main floor living room, library and front entry. The main and upper floor spaces walk out to spacious patios and decks, ranging from private lounging areas to overlooking landscaped vistas. The 2-bedroom rental and nanny suite on the lower level also have their own dedicated walk out patios and sunken gardens, equal in light and spacial quality to the levels above. The crisp, looming roof lines highlight the beauty of the natural cedar soffits while sitting comfortably on a minimal material pallet of stucco, glass, detailed metal, concrete and featured marble slabs.

After the Second world war Germans were expelled. From the 1980´s the house had been extended without any concept several times, conversion into cinema was never finished. In 1989 the totalitarian regime ended. Later the house was bought by local NGO (Slavonická renesanční), which organizes public cultural and educational activities, and it was decided to renovate it.

Kilic Ali Pasa Hamam in Istanbul, Turkey by Cafer Bozkurt Architecture

 
January 30th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Cafer Bozkurt Architecture

The Kılıç Ali Paşa Hamam was constructed in 1580 by Master Architect Sinan, on behalf of Ottoman Admiral Kılıç Ali Paşa as part of a larger ‘külliye’ complex, in the Tophane district of Istanbul. As the physical manifestation of a unique period in the historical harbor of the Ottoman imperial city, the Kılıç Ali Paşa hamam has become not only part of public space again in the Tophane area, but also part of an overall revitalization of a previously derelict area in the city. 430 years of layered materials and debris, literally ‘embalming’ the surfaces and ‘burying’ the structure, had to be removed in order to identify and restitute the original Sinan building, thus relinking this 1st degree historical monument back to its origins.

Airfield is a 35-acre working farm and estate located in the southern suburbs of Dublin, open to the public since 1998; it is an area of pastureland, woodland and walled gardens into which a patchwork of buildings has been introduced focused on Airfield House itself, which was the Over end family home from 1894. Airfield Trust was established in 1974 by the Overend sisters, Letitia and Naomi, as a charitable organisation with an educational and recreational remit provided through an environment connecting people and nature through the farm and gardens. To enhance the visitor experience and expand the facilities at Airfield a number of key spatial drivers have been put in place:
