The museum is designed to house objects of treasure, and is also a treasured object of fascination. It is an identifiable cultural icon, giving visitors a memorable experience on the traditional wisdoms as well as the appreciation of the cultural identity of the city.

Kindergarden in Chroscice in Polska, Poland by PORT

Article source: PORT

Children have a drive to be independent and do things on their own. This is a healthy part of normal child development. As children grow, they are able to do more and more tasks. Kids use their 5 senses to discover the world and shape their personality. They absorb surrounding, which affects concentration and harmonious development. Surrounding creates children’s reality, affect knowledge and encourage to develop certain skills. And through all of above makes them happy.

Anglesea beach house in Victoria Australian by ANDREW MAYNARD ARCHITECTS

Article source: ANDREW MAYNARD ARCHITECTS

More frequently holiday homes are becoming little more than transplanted suburban ugliness; the great Australian tradition of the ‘shack’ is in danger of being superseded by bloated mansions with four bathrooms and all the trappings of modern life.

Apartment Refurbishment in Santiago, Chile by enrique browne y arquitectos asociados

 
July 16th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: enrique browne y arquitectos asociados

The Project is the transformation of a 20 year old apartment in a historicist building. Since it´s located in the 6th floor, it has excellent views to a big green area to the west. The remodeling considered a different program from its original, plus a guest room. This and other reasons influenced in the desire of generating bigger and more integrated spaces. The possibilities of intervention were very restrictive because: a) It was a requirement to keep the exterior untouched; b) Almost all the walls were of structural reinforced concrete, and; c) the floor-ceiling height was very low.

Viravent, 112 flats in Cenon, France by Martin Duplantier Architectes

 
July 16th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Martin Duplantier Architectes

The burning issue in Metropolitan Bordeaux is a project of 50,000 housing units. Envisioned and designed to be a real estate opportunity, the overly dense development has created quite a controversy. The Viravent project proposes another paradigm. Built before the beginning of the 50,000 yet still comparable, given the shared design model (sited in the heart of town, but in a diffuse section without access to the ZAC), the Viravent project integrates into an existing urban fabric more than imposing upon it.

MoganshanGowin Golf Manor in Hangzhou, China by Rocco Design Architects Ltd.

 
July 16th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Rocco Design Architects Ltd. 

Situated in the famed resort area of Moganshan, the Gowin Golf Manor serves as a clubhouse for golfers, but also offers a small number of guest rooms to house overnight visitors. The rooms overlook the golf course and are lifted slightly, and held to one side of a central atrium while the public functions are grouped on the other side. The disparate functions of the clubhouse are distinguished by a unique set of materials including zinc, stone, and glass; together they create a multi-storey space pierced by angled ramps and sky bridges.

New residential and mix-use tower in Antwerp, Belgium by C.F. Møller Architects

 
July 16th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source:  C.F. Møller Architects

The architectural idea of the building is derived from an inside-out perspective, where the social qualities of the building are a dominant driver for the design: Often in tall buildings, the sense of community amongst the occupants is challenged by the fact that you hardly ever meet your neighbours, except coming and going via the lobby and at the lifts.
