Own House in Poland by Grupa Metaforma

Article source: Grupa Metaforma

The project of the house is a very specific and at the same time unique challenge for an architect. Each line sketched by the designer is a reflection of the Investors dreams. In the case of this house project, the Metaforma Group was able to cooperate with clients from a very beginning of the investment process to the finishing point that was the interior design. The comprehensive approach to the topic has created a consistent whole. The residents did not have a full vision of how the building should look like. They were relying mostly on the sensations they wanted to feel inside the house.

Santa Monica Hotels in California by Gwynne Pugh Urban Studio, Inc.

DESIGN

Although different hotels, the two structures work together to create a strong presence on the 5th Street corner by providing tower-like elements which will offer a gateway to the city. Both structures have interior courts that provide for daylight, cross-ventilation, and general interest shops for hotel patrons. These projects have been designed to complement the fabric of the city while being graceful, fully functional hotels. With an eye toward the then-under-construction Expo Line ushering in an unprecedented number of visitors to Santa Monica, GP-US envisioned the hotels serving as a prime hospitality recipient for such travelers.

La Canaleta School in Catalonia, Spain by 2260mm arquitectura

 
October 9th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: 2260mm arquitectura

The school is located on square land in the perimeter of the town in an area of potential development.  The building stands alone in a isolated area, limited by an avenue, that is buried beneath the school and fields.

The building design is a comb framework facing onto the future plaza, (for school weekly access and weekend public use) and inside you will find the administration office, kitchen, dining room and gym.  The two perpendicular wings are on one and two floors respectively, where the classrooms are located for kindergarten and primary.

Remodeling A Family Home in Lucerne, Switzerland by STEREO ARCHITEKTUR

 
October 9th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source:  STEREO ARCHITEKTUR

On the ground floor the main operation consists in adding the volume of the f ormer garage to the living room area and therein placing the new kitchen. Not only provides this transformation the required additional living space, but also the whole spatial organisation and the visual relations are completely redefined. Previously, the entrance, the kitchen and the living romm were rather disjoined from each other. Now they come together in a generous spatial entity which is articulated by the new kitchen. The floor of the former garage is a worktop-hight below the living room. This difference is preserved, which results in the worktop being on the same level as the ground floor. The sunken position of the kitchen generates interesting and surprising visual relations. Materialized in concrete and massive oak, the kitchen is both a structural element and a spatial piece of furniture. The entrance receives a sober overhaul and a modest wardrobe in order to clean up the previous spatial Situation.

Lab City CentraleSupélec in Gif-sur-Yvette, France by OMA

 
October 9th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: OMA 

In an era of privatization, cities are facing a major challenge: investment in the public domain depends increasingly on the private sector. As a result of this reframing of the collective agreement, the role of architecture is often reduced to the visual impact of its shape and surface rather than contributing to a new educational, social and civic dimension. The competition launched by the Ecole Centrale Paris for the design of a new engineering school has become the perfect opportunity to explore ways to answer this demanding challenge.

Via University College, Campus Horsens in Denmark by C. F. Møller Architects

VIA University College, Campus Horsens will unify a variety of education programs in a vibrant and active educational setting deeply rooted in the city.

Campus Horsens establishes itself as a city in the city with a continuation of the area’s building block structure and classical city motives such as narrow streets, parks and urban squares. At the same time, the campus connects with the city by establishing a path that connects the three new urban areas, Campus Square, Expo-pladsen and Innovation Square, which all lies as a natural extension of the city’s flow.

This proposal is about a serene dialogue between opposites: tradition and contemporaneity, construction and nature, unity and fragmentation, presence and absence, skyscrapers and park.

Songdo’s Central Park is a vast green area surrounded with high quality architectural landmarks, such as the TriBowl Cultural Center opposite to the site, and contrasts with an impressive background of high-rise buildings.
