Curtain Cottage in Carlton North, Australia by Apparte Studio

Passive energy design

The narrow house faces north and the front living area becomes flooded with sunlight, penetrating deep into the hallway.

The raised cathedral ceiling draws up much of the hot air during occasional hot summer periods, leaving the lower areas of the house cooler.

The existing house had good thermal properties to begin with. Most of both party walls are shared with a neighbour and there is good cross-flow ventilation to release heat when the front and rear doors are opened.

The large skylight over the dining area to the south saves hours of artificial lighting each day.

Ri-Gjanica in Fier, Albania by MAU Architecture

The project’s strategy is to increase those elements that characterize the identity of Fier, the reconstruction of a series of relationships that have conditioned the quality of life.

The city’s relationship with the river not only through the presence of a new urban platform, but through a connection to the broader and more complex territory. River revelation towards transparency, visibility, visibility, usability and access to the coast; The greening relationship permits the recognition of a permeable boundary within compact constructions by enhancing visual perception. Along the shore on the north side of the river, the project proposes, in this regard, a linear park that balances spaces through a green road network with a multidimensional vision due to different perceptions of views. The northern Axis also remembers a pedestrian system, the “Promenade”, and a wide greenery system.

Restructuring Of The Richelieu Site in Paris, by Bruno Gaudin Architecte DPLG

 
February 8th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Bruno Gaudin Architecte DPLG 

An architecture of distribution

Armed with the finalized assessment, it became clear that a major axis of the architectural part of the project would have to be a reorganization of the distribution. Thus, new principles of distribution had to be defined in coherence with the larger architectural ensembles that structure the geography of the site.

Installed over the centuries and according to need, the site counts some some thirty more or less discontinuous existing staircases. However, their important number did not indicate a genuine distributive space but rather a random organization in a succession of commissioned pieces, passing from one gallery to another, from a reserve to a reading room, with nothing in between; all the interstices having been filled up under the pressure of the constant requirements for additional surface areas.

Designed from a high tech, local handmade perspective. This residence integrates regional materiality elements like the red brick due to the closeness of the local brick producers in San Pedro Cholula. The material is arranged in an artisanal way, allowing expressive geometry due to the modular repetition.
