Remodeling A Family Home in Lucerne, Switzerland by STEREO ARCHITEKTUR

 
October 9th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

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 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.

Dartmouth College House Center Pilots in Hanover, New Hampshire by Sasaki

 
October 6th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Sasaki

In 2014, Sasaki completed a study of Dartmouth College’s residential life experience. Following recommendations from this study, the college officially moved to a house system in 2016. This change will strengthen community, promote continuity of friendship over students’ college careers, and increase opportunities for deeper intellectual engagement through informal interactions. The six house communities are formed from clusters of existing residence halls, many of which were built between 1920–50. As this housing stock had not been built to accommodate student life needs, four communities required additional common space to support the new house programming. Sasaki designed two temporary House Centers to meet this need.

Casa Vidular in Spain by 2260mm arquitectura

Renovation of an old county house in Cantabria, in northern Spain. The house had the typical structure of ancient houses of that zone: stone walls and a timber structure of columns and beams.

Unfortunatelly, at the time we were designing the project, the house partially felt down. Only 2 stone facades remained standing, so in fact we had to rebuild completelly the house.
