SAI Project in Gangnam-gu, Seoul, Korea by Moon Hoon

 
June 29th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Moon Hoon

It was a unique case; in the construction of a new building next to the client had made many illicit choices, causing the district government to intervene and to suggest a radically altered space. In between the existing building site and the newly built building, I built a structure that could be used as a green house.

THE HAGUE: On June 28th, after a construction period of just two years, the new Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis in The Hague opens its doors to the public for the first time. The surface area of the famous Mauritshuis museum has been doubled – although there is hardly any indication of this fact above ground, thanks to a complex and spectacular feat of engineering which was completed on schedule and within budget. The dramatic yet subtle intervention has solved the logistical problems facing the constantly busy, much-visited museum, while also resulting in a bright and welcoming entrance space characterised by an ingenious and striking use of daylight. The renovation of the existing Mauritshuis was also a part of this project.

Stud Horse Mountain in Washington by Balance Associates, Architects

Article source: Balance Associates, Architects

This 3,500 square foot home is located at the end of a ridge overlooking the Methow Valley in Northeast Washington State.

The house is arranged around a courtyard to provide a sheltered area from the exposed location on the ridge. It is separated into four parts, each orientated to different views and solar exposure. A large screen porch forms a connection between the living and sleeping wings to provide an insect free outdoor dining and living space. The shed roofs with cathedral ceilings slope with the contours of the hill to reduce the overall scale and impact to the structure as it is viewed from the valley floor below.
