This post-industrial apartment is located in the center of Warsaw in a building of an old factory of silver and bronze which was recently revitalized. The owner, french foreigner, asked designers from Chalupko Design to create a modern, cosy interior which would fit to the historical building and its facade. That’s why the apartment is finished in industrial style. There are such characteristic elements as bricks, platform table, black steel book shelf and bar-chairs. All kept in modern and light style. The space is calm, neutral, but also warm and pleasant. The beige palette is contrasted with walnut wood, black granite counter-top, black steel elements in the living room, dark grey tiles in the bathroom and dark wallpaper in the bedroom. The overall impression is that of warmth and lightness. Modern lighting completes it.

PANI community centre in Rajarhat, Bangladesh by SchilderScholte architects

Article source: SchilderScholte architects

The Dutch foundation Pani commissioned SchilderScholte architects to design an educational building in the north Bengal town of Rajarhat. The architects couple embraced this pro bono assignment coming from ideological motives and knowledge sharing. The building serves as a community centre for folks from the region, aged from toddlers to elder people. During the design process attention was mainly focused on locally available materials and weather conditions. The starting point was to realize a building using materials and skills from within a 15 miles radius around the site. Bamboo, hand-shaped brick, Mango wood, reused steel, local mortar and wafer-thin recycled corrugated panels are the main materials used in the building. The drive was to encourage locals to become aware on the basic principles of sustainability and durable building concepts. In effect close to zero electricity or fossil fuels were used during construction and other necessities required for erecting this building. Thus realizing an environmentally friendly building that contributes to the community in a significant way. The plan (79×105 ft) is East-West oriented and consists of two volumes under a large bamboo roof construction. The classrooms and lavatories are positioned on the South side and on the North side we find the workshop with store. Two sight lines traverse the building in all four directions. The lifting of the roof high above the volumes has achieved a considerable reduction of heat build up within the spaces. Further cooling is provided by cross ventilation, surrounding vegetation and the nearby pond. With the completion of this striking design the architects have proved that conventional local resources and materials can be used to build successful environmentally friendly unconventional architecture.

“Simply … the SilverWoodHouse … any attempt to adjectives falls short of the final experience of contemplation … congratulations and thanks Ernesto”

These were the words of my clients Rui and Marisa when asked about SilverWoodHouse. I could not be more impressed by the answer, on my way to see the architecture. A challenge, an interpretation, a creation, by me, not for me, but for someone.
