Sant Pere Sacarrera Footbridge in Catalonia, Spain by Alfa Polaris

 
March 30th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Alfa Polaris

This footbridge over the new bypass of Sant Pere Sacarrera is part of an Y-shaped itinerary that links the town centre with two footpaths that give access to a forest area and were interrupted by the new road. The client not only wanted to provide pedestrians a pleasant user experience, but also carry out an attractive design that would improve the visual experience of the drivers, avoiding, however, luxurious solutions. The aim was to get a proposal with reduced whole life cost and environmental burdens. For this reason the design team proposed a Corten steel truss girder structure —very efficient from the structural point of view and whose rusted skin protects itself from further corrosion— for the deck; the use of LED lamps —with long life span and energy efficiency— for the street lighting over the footbridge; and polymeric timber —with almost no maintenance— for the decking over the structure.

Complexo Dom Pedro in São Paulo, Brazil by FGMF Architects

 
March 30th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: FGMF Architects 

Some years ago we were invited to design the Dom Pedro Complex project: two entire clubs, with headquarters, entrances and sports and leisure outdoor areas. The architecture should propose a unique identity for both clubs, but at the same time design independently flows organization, spaces, dimensions, relation with views and surroundings. Almost like two projects in one.

Beretta Showroom in Bucharest, Romania by Fabrica de arhitectură

Article source: Fabrica de arhitectură

Beretta showroom was designed in a particular fashion that is a mixture of classic and industrial style. The Gallery, where premium hunting weapons are displayed, is designed  in a more classical way, only the furniture and the lightning being modern. However, the rest of the showroom has a more industrial style with black metal furniture and high contrasts. The reception is the element that synthesizes best the entire showroom: a massive wood and black marble desk with an industrial tridimensional metal structure. The white elm sculpture gives an organic feel to the entire space and accentuates the purpose of the showroom: selling hunting weapons.

Cabin at Troll’s Peak in Sunndal, Norway by Rever & Drage Architects

 
March 29th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Rever & Drage Architects

This is first and foremost a robust heavy duty cabin with high quality traditional craftmanship and local timber being used throughout. It uses a traditional layout with a connecting row of different buildings styles and with materials and techniques corresponding with the different indoor functions, the weather conditions they must handle as well as their representative status. The choice of durable materials and a construction to fit the terrain, will give the cabin a long life, even in the harsh weather conditions of this high mountain valley. The cabin is practically designed for an active outdoor family with a lot of equipment and the need for a comfortable place to change before and after hiking and skiing trips and not the least to provide a drying area for wet clothes. The building is further tailor-made to transport wet hikers from the glassed-in garage via a laundry area, bathroom and kitchen to a soft sofa by the fireplace with a wide panorama window.

Museum Romeins Halder in Sint-Michielsgestel, The Netherlands by RESET ARCHITECTURE

Article source: RESET ARCHITECTURE

Reset Architecture transforms a barn at a historical estate into a museum.

This project addresses a current theme of the changing countryside that is no longer mainly used for agriculture. Within this context of change the intention of this project originated from preservation; sharing the past of a beautiful location. The architecture of this adaptive reuse project does not react to history in a nostalgic or thematic way, it uses a more context sensitive approach. The interior has changed to a level in which the old and new merge but still are, without hierarchy, visually present. As a result the new setting evokes a self-evident presence that relates to the characteristics of the natural scenery.

Illinois Creek Ranch in Alma, Kansas by el dorado inc

 
March 29th, 2018 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: el dorado inc 

Located on a historic farmstead in Wabaunsee County, Kansas the Illinois Creek Ranch was designed for a family of five, their extended family, friends and guests. The goal was to forge an emotional bond between people and a unique landscape. Structures were purposefully straightforward in their vernacular appearance with a focus on innovative, nuanced detailing and contemporary material selection. The architect began by studying the site – history, topography, soil and hydrological conditions, seasonal wind and sun patterns. The positioning of the house was a response to these conditions. Parts of the home were positioned parallel to topography to accommodate single story program, other parts were turned perpendicular to allow multiple story programming. The structures strategically blocked wind to allow comfortable outdoor spaces while breezeway windows were positioned to allow passive cooling inside. The massing of the house was positioned to take full advantage of seasonal solar heat gain. Movement throughout the home was carefully choreographed to engage a range of landscape experiences.
