Lyon Park House in Arlington, Virginia by Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

 
September 15th, 2016 by Sanjay Gangal

Lyon Park, in Arlington, Virginia is an “urban village” near Washington, DC. Most of the houses in this established neighborhood were constructed in the 1920’s and 1930’s. The houses vary in style, ranging from small single-story bungalows to larger wood and brick colonial revivalist houses. Streets are tree lined and the topography is gently rolling. After living in their house for about seven years, a young family of four hoped to transform their colonial house to better fit their lifestyle. A series of small but cozy rooms failed to connect with each other and to the deep, sloping landscaped backyard. Excluding the basement, the existing house comprised less than fourteen hundred square feet, with two bedrooms and only one full bathroom. Ideally, the transformation would retain the “sense of home” while providing spaces open to each other, additional bedrooms and a better connection to the landscaped site. A building that avoided stylistic mimicry with modern light filled spaces was desired. Sustainable construction techniques and the use of environmentally sensitive materials were expected.

Projecto Homem in Braga, Portugal by Cerejeira Fontes Architects

Article source: Cerejeira Fontes Architects 

On the  highest  point  in  the  city  of  Braga the  different temporal  strata of the city can be seen. This is the location to construct the building, connected to this visual memory. The connection  of the present occurs in the courtyards of the building, the location of social activity at the center, the repetition extends into the city’s areas of activities. These connections are registered non-explicitly in the subtraction of masses form the construction  of the building, extending it to the city squares, main streets, buildings and landscape. There is a formal  and social relationship  between  the city and the  building.  A project  for  the  rehabilitating people with  problems  with  substance abuse assumes the  same fragmented   relationship   of  city  life  at  your  feet.  The organization  of  the  architectural   elements, regardless  of the   different   functions   that   compose  the   program,   it provides a formal response for each individual space and is revealed as a tool to transforming it into a piece of the city. The building  consists of  two  platforms  which  fall  within several   blocks   seemingly   independent,  creating   two courtyards:  one facing the  city and the  other  an interior courtyard.

Happier Café – Paper Space in Taipei, Taiwan by J.C Architecture

 
September 14th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: J.C Architecture

A collaboration that started with a discussion of what makes one feel happy, whether tangible or a feeling, from small pleasures tolife conquests. Happier cafe is a place for change and evolution, where people feel comfortable but also are key attributes to the space. For that, we believe each person sharing the space should be able to change and contribute to its creation. We imagined it as an art installation, given the lease was granted for only six months, something perhaps temporary, nonetheless imaginative and playful. Using paper was an ideal scheme to allow people to express, build, and adjust the environment according to their mood. Paper became a simple tool that records the change of the space, and the idea that each one of us can seek and manipulate their own search for balance and transformation. Large paper rolls create a time machine installation, forming walkways, niches, and intimate spaces for coach sessions, gatherings and relaxation. The cafe bar is designed as an open counter where users hand pick their snacks and prepare their drinks, and are trusted to pay and collect their own change, enabling and sharing the responsibility and maintenance of the space to the community, an overall feeling that directly connects the people and space together.

Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) in Washington DC by Freelon Adjaye Bond/SmithGroup

 
September 14th, 2016 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Adjaye Associates

Winning the competition to design the National Museum of African American History and Culture has consolidated the practice’s US portfolio with arguably the nation’s most prestigious new building. Located on Constitution Avenue, adjacent to the National Museum of American History and the Washington Monument, the museum will house exhibit galleries, administrative spaces, theatre space and collections storage space for the NMAAHC. As lead designer for the Freelon Adjaye Bond/SmithGroup (FAB) team, David Adjaye’s approach has been to establish both a meaningful relationship to this unique site as well as a strong conceptual resonance with America’s deep and longstanding African heritage. The design rests on three cornerstones: the “corona” shape and form of the building; the extension of the building out into the landscape – the porch; and the bronze filigree envelope.

Family Home Klanovice in Prague, Czech Republic by ADR architects

 
September 14th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: BoysPlayNice

The house is situated on level ground and consists of three main axially symmetrical rectangular blocks. By its situation and shape, the house deliberately splits the garden into several parts: front garden open to public view, back private garden and small atria – each such garden space can be designed in a different style. Despite the corner plot, the spatial layout affords the family a good level of privacy.
