– We are young Vietnamese and Italian architects, with the intention of opening an architecture start-up in Vietnam. In October 2016, we returned to Hanoi to find a leasing office space. Surveying around Hanoi, we found out that a lot of balcony here are unused, probably because of dust, noise and burglary prevention problem of the urban area. Citizens hardly communicate – interact with the external environment, with surrounding neighborhood. We call those balconies are dead spaces.

– Being aware of the above mentioned, our team planned to ​​rent a downtown house with the balconies in order to awake such spaces up by architectural solutions which create friendly – multifunctional open spaces.

Wilson House in Chiba, Japan by Klein Dytham architecture

 
April 25th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Klein Dytham architecture 

Wilson House is a weekend house in a relaxed beachside town in Chiba, an hour and a half by train from Tokyo.

The house combines the aspirations of both client and architect – the client wanted the house to have a feeling of real solidity, and Klein Dytham architecture was keen to open the house to its magnificent setting. In meeting these two goals, KDa found inspiration in the wooden platform trays – called sanbo – found in Japan’s Shinto temples. These small trays have a built-in stand, and are used in Shinto rituals to present offerings of food or other special items to the enshrined gods. KDa reinterpreted this form as a building with a solid base – two heavy walls of concrete supporting a concrete tray. Arranged on this tray is the “offering” – a variety of lightweight, wooden-framed boxes.

House with Gardens and Roofs in Hamamatsu, Japan by ARII IRIE Architects

Article source: ARII IRIE Architects

The house is located in Hamamatsu, a city located on the southern coast of Central Japan, known for its warm climate. The house is a detached extension of an existing house built in 1983. Our aim was to create a whole, old and new altogether rather than emphasizing the contrast between the two. Linear volumes stretching in the east-west direction, spread over the site leaving spaces in between, which are terraces and gardens. The group of roofs of the new volumes relate to that of the existing house, creating a sense of continuation between old and new.

Public Library and Socio-Cultural Center in Aduanas, Spain by Singular Studio

This building, conceived with a hybrid use of Public Library and Socio-Cultural Center, is located in the seaside neighborhood of Javea, near the port. This is the reason why, after a process of architectural approach, it has been inspired by reasons related to the sea … metal facade vibrates, has three dimensions and simulates movement, such as sea surface. The facade treatment, as a light metal skin that envelops the whole volume, aims to boost its weightlessness without touching the ground plane. It is a large box or floating cage, a huge metal fishing net as those in the nearby port.

House in Morrillos by Cristián Izquierdo Lehmann

Article source: Cristián Izquierdo Lehmann 

This project is by a long, open beach, on a desert dune rising in front of a wetland. It is a seasonal house to accommodate up to three couples, and can be leased or bartered the rest of the year. Its intermittent occupation and isolated location led us to think of it as a superposition of two models: the motel and the cabin. The motel suggests self-sufficient rooms served from the outside by a second access, while the cabin presumes a centralized space that brings the community together. A set of 4 rooms come together in a shared central kitchen, forming a larger compact structure enclosed by mobile panels, which open different possibilities of use according to their position.

The Lost Column in Sicilia, Italy by atelier qbe3

Article source: atelier qbe3

The Maddalena peninsula is a rare architectural and landscape quality system, subject to constraints in 2004 with the establishment of Protected Marine Area. For these reasons, the design approach would be result in an entire territorial system absolute respect and preserving the image and environmental structure.

According to these thoughts we decided to design an “utopian” and “visionary” form. The project idea, in accordance with the guidelines of the call, is based on theoretical assumptions that follow a fantasy story of historical facts about “Magna Grecia” territory.

NURSERY in Nagykovácsi, Hungary by Földes és Társai Építésziroda

Article source: Földes és Társai Építésziroda

During the design phase we strived to preserve the scales of the village. We chose the archetypical form of rural houses. Small independent pavilions were the bases of our spatial system which envelopes all three functions: a nursery, health visitor centre and a surgery. Shifting the volumes opened a small piazzetta at the entrance and intimate internal spaces were also formed which all present different exterior qualities. The volumes are interconnected via short glazed passageways.
