On the site of Skjervsfossen (Skjervet waterfall), Fortunen have designed a small service building consisting of two restrooms and a small technical room, while the landscape design is made by Østengen & Bergo. The client, Nasjonale turistveger, challenged Fortunen and Østengen & Bergo to accentuate and enhance the experience of the natural landscape, whilst not competing with it. The overall aspiration was to create a unique and surprising experience. The main concept has been to make the wild nature accessible without hurting it.

Owensboro is the county seat of Daviess County in north-central Kentucky. Originally part of Shawnee territory, settlers first arrived there in the 1700s. The city played an important role in the Civil War era and served as a key river port that continues to this day. The city’s environs also gave birth to the Bluegrass sound in American music, starting in the 1930s and 1940s.

Cabin at Longbranch in Washington by Olson Kundig

Article source: Olson Kundig

Jim Olson’s reverence for nature and admiration of the site’s beauty is expressed in the design of this project located on Puget Sound and nestled amidst the towering fir trees of an ancient forest. What began as a 14-foot-square bunk house built in 1959 has morphed through subsequent remodels in 1981, 1997, 2003 and 2014 into a modest yet highly livable weekend retreat. Each successive addition and remodel has reused and integrated the previous structure rather than erasing it to reveal the cabin’s architectural history.

“Schiebel Elektronische Geräte GmbH” arranged a strategy competition in summer 2005 for a production hall with an integrated office building, which should represent the identity of the international aviation company. Because of a nearby testing area in close proximity of an airfield, the site in Wiener Neustadt was chosen as a ideal location. The design of project A01 architects ZT GmbH won the competition and the architects were commissioned to the design the building, the interior and to conduct the construction process. The work started in fall 2005 and lasted until summer 2006. The completion of the interior was finished in 2007. The building is composed of two parts: The office unit is arranged lengthwise facing the street and the production hall is located next to the airfield. The office area holds the major administrative functions of production, marketing, research and education. The meeting room is attached to a generous deck for visitors, which is used for airshows. The function of the employee‘s area was considered to be important and accordingly arranged with an own terrace accessible from the lunchroom. The production area contains two thousand square meters. The hall holds not only an area for assembly and fabrication work, but also an area for design, development and attendance. The autonomous helicopters are developed and manufactured with the latest production processes. The innovative concept and design of the camcopter was awarded with the „Staatspreis für Design 2005“, the highest Austrian design award, and is distributed all around the world.

Residence Ödberg in Klosterneugurg, Austria by project A01 architects

 
August 6th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: project A01 architects  

The idea to build a residence with a central courtyard, following the perception of the well-known case study houses, was the initial approach for the project. The living area gathers around this open space and the pool frames the landscape, thereby enclosing the courtyard. Controlled outlooks and space-interacting structures open up the building towards the surrounding nature and at the same time give form to the self-contained building with its central element. The sloping terrain is raised up to a constructed platform, simultaneously extending the garden area.
