Standard House in Pszczyna, Poland by KWK PROMES

Article source: KWK PROMES

The project arose in untypical conditions: it was supposed to be built in two different places – near Pszczyna and in the outskirts of Berlin. As the second location was still to be chosen, the main goal became to design a house that fits every plot. This is how the idea of standard hOuse emerged, first such an attempt in the KWK Promes history. Round shape of the house makes it easily suitable to any given shape of the site, freedom in the choice of a roof type makes it universal in terms of landscape conditionings, while flexibility of interior plan adopts it to needs of an individual family.

Two carriages of the M2 train, which until 1990 regularly hauled passengers along the Belgian railway network, can now be found inside “Station Racour” (Belgium). Skilfully renovated and refurbished, while at the same time adhering to the styles, colours and finishes of the original structure, today the carriages take on a new role as two four-star holiday homes, each of approximately 60 square metres and accommodating a maximum of six people.

CHHATRAPATI SHIVAJI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, TERMINAL 2 in Mumbai, India by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP

Ten years ago, Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport welcomed six million passengers per year through its gates; today it serves nearly five times that number. With the city’s emergence as India’s financial capital and the country’s rapidly expanding and economically mobile middle class, the existing airport infrastructure proved unable to support the growing volume of domestic and global traffic, resulting in frequent delays. By orchestrating the complex web of passengers and planes into a design that feels intuitive and responds to the region’s rocketing growth, the new Terminal 2 asserts the airport’s place as a preeminent gateway to India.

The Hendee-Borg House is a symmetrical saw-tooth roof house for two artists—a sculptor and a media artist—that includes a pair of large artist studios and an attenuated gallery space, in addition to a sequence of domestic spaces. The studio spaces are planometrically-mirrored about an east-west axis in order to facilitate distinct, natural lighting conditions for each studio under a series of eight skylights.

FUNERAL PARLOR in Granada, Spain by Muñoz Miranda Architects

 
February 28th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Muñoz Miranda Architects

A lot that does not exist. A pine forest along the hillside at the top of Murtas. An existing retaining wall constructed in an Alpujarra´s vernacular way, using local rough stones. The program seeks a room to hold a wake over. A large stone lintel beam supported by a large HEB creates an access space threshold. Once inside, you think of a concave space (cavus-cave) that connects earth with sky. Two concave rooms, one public and one more private.
