ÖAMTC – the support point

From the service workshops to the heliport all the elements of the programme are laid out along a single vertical axis, i.e. also from the counter to the reception and the event areas to the large atrium of the offices. Logistically compact contents with high degree of efficiency, which is essentially what support points are, are here transformed and applied to the building in a translated form.

Tevfik Fikret Elementary School in Istanbul, Turkey by Öney Architecture

 
July 20th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Öney Architecture

Already providing service in the garden of Tevfik Fikret Primary School located in Bebek neighborhood of Besiktas district in Istanbul, the nursery unit, which fails to satisfy the needs is projected to be replaced with a nursery that can operate independent from the primary school. An area located next to the entrance gate of the school has been allocated for this function, which is restricted with the retaining wall formed by the elevation difference of the neighboring parcel on the west side and the school land on the north side. A double layered facade has been planned in order to meet the illumination need for education and whereas to reduce the heat effect in the summer months. The area remaining between these layers have been planned as a garden where students can grow plants. The entrance of the building, which is planned as two-stored, is projected at the 1/3 axis of its long side. The entrance area has been considered as cloakroom and reception. A semi-closed play ground has been created at the roadside of the building. The second floor of the structure includes two classrooms and wet areas. The classrooms have been projected on the upper floor in order to avoid the noise from the road as well as the school garden. The top of the circulation area has been projected to be transparent in order to make use of the structure in depth especially in the education season when day light is relatively less.

I called this project 100% Residency, because all the land, even in its green area, it has a function.
This, was elaborated as a collaboration for a student of mine, of the course of Civil Engineering, in college that I taught. Therefore, I elaborated in metallic structure, for it to be already getting accustomed and having an already real project, a detail of this bevelled structure, so it already improves its knowledge. And the apparent concrete in the rest.

Article source: AllesWirdGut 

In Kirchberg / Luxembourg AllesWirdGut build an ensemble of two large and two smaller buildings accommodating a total of 110 apartments.

The stretched-out buildings in the Quartier du Parc in Kirchberg, Luxembourg, are situated on the northeastern edge of a development area. The northwestern side is bounded by Konrad Adenauer Boulevard. On the south side, the ensemble opens to Parc Reimerwee. Due to their orientation and different rental systems, the two volumes are seen as “fraternal twins”. Together, they make a strong duo that have certain things in common on the outside, while their interiors are different.

Working within the bones of a solid, well-constructed water front home built in the ‘60s on Sydney’s Parramatta River, the adaptive reuse of this multi-level dwelling involved removing the entirety of the internal workings of the existing structure, re-invigorating the central circulation core, promoting light and cross ventilation while embracing the waterfront outlook to the North West.

HOUSE IN THE DUNE in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Luciano Kruk

Article source: Luciano Kruk

The House in the Dune is located in The Coast Disctrict, in a seaside neighborhood 13 km north of the city of Pinamar and four hours away from Buenos Aires.

Lying on a curved cul-de-sac, the site is a trapezoid with its widest side at the back. Originally, even though it lacked tree vegetation (particularly pines, which are typical in The Coast District), the land seemed impenetrable, completely covered as it was with acacias.
