Green Places Community Clubhouse in Annan District, Taiwan by Chain 10 Urban Space Design

 
December 16th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: v2com

Keng-Fu Lo, lead designer of the Green Places Community Clubhouse, located in Tainan, Taiwan, sees a building as a living being. Breaking with architectural tradition, each floor of the clubhouse has its own distinctive design. The building is a shared space for the residents of an independent community. It provides spaces for dining, reading, exercising, learning, sharing and communication. The floors are stacked vertically as a series of free curves. The design is based on natural patterns and includes a reflecting pond, outdoor plaza and unobstructed views of the nearby hills. Varied surfaces with differing heights encourage people to walk in and explore the interior. Natural elements are brought into the building not only through its décor, but with a wall formed of tall trees. The result is a harmonious environment where human life maintains contact with nature.

Boos Beach Club Restaurant in Bridel, Luxembourg by Metaform architects

 
December 16th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: v2com

In place of the old bar/restaurant BOOS Beach Club, modern and contemporary architecture, tightly linked to its context, reflects the new image of this iconic venue in Luxembourg. The new structure, interwoven around the existing house, is inspired by the Japanese art of origami. It resembles a folded sheet of paper that answers to the program requirements, while creating a relation with the old and opening up to the natural surroundings. The idea was to integrate harmoniously the new structure into the existing natural context, while at the same time paying respect to the existing architecture by placing a light wooden structure with glass openings towards the landscape. The dynamic design enables orienting the bar and eating areas towards the outside, guiding the views to the tall tree stalks. By leaning on the existing house, and due to its triangular form, the self-supporting rigid roof requires very few peripheral structural points. The motivation to choose this lightweight and easily removable roof system leaves space and possibility to the idea of possible future change, if needed.

Hemmingford House in Canada by SIMARD architecture

 
December 16th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: v2com

In the vast rural fields south of Montreal, a new residence takes root. Like a fieldstone unveiled amongst the furrows of a ploughed field, a stratified monolith of slate emerges from the earth. Eroded, sculpted and fragmented by time and the forces of nature, this mineral formation becomes the pedestal upon which new life is anchored.

The highest value of the plot is a wonderful view stretching out. The idea was for the house to become its framework that crops it. The most appropriate building turned out to be a fully open on mountain landscape one-storey building, which gives the same view to all of the interiors.

Article source: B.L.U.E. Architecture Studio

This project is a store renovation for the furniture brand “Lost and Found” located in Guozijian Street, a historic district in Beijing. As nowadays, more and more people tends to live alone, the concept of a traditional family gradually disintegrated, and the city’s public space is becoming another “home” for people. Under such contexts, the renovation intends to bring the sense of “home” into the store, and to introduce a new vision for the future commercial space that connects people with urban public space.
