June 18th, 2013 by Sumit Singhal

Architects: Gogl Architekten

Time seems to stop in Saalbach-Hinterglemm. Just an hour away from Salzburg, traditional houses and hotels with carved dark wooden terraces pepper the rolling landscape of this intimate alpine town. Located directly on the ski slopes and framed by age-old mountains, a white four-story house rises above an ensemble of minimal, modern buildings with floor-to-ceiling windows.

The site is located urban area close to the down-town of Daegu, one of the biggest Cities in South Korea. In contrast to its locality, this town is isolated from the major city development.

eMOTION(ing) topography in Pordenone, Italy by Disguincio&Co srl

The project is about the ri-territorialization of a series of commercial warehouses: combining the need to renovate the facade and to design the parking area in front of the building, the architecture reconnects the building to the surrounding environment through the staging of a new landscape that tries to absorb the character of that country side, now forgotten by that area of the town, outskirt of Pordenone.

A+ animal hospital in Seoul, Korea by JHY Architects & Associates

June 18th, 2013 by Sumit Singhal

A+ animal hospital interior design ventures what values atypical design could make in 53㎡, offering an utilitarian furniture fit into the programs. It was a critical challenge to make a spacious amusement place for pets, even 5 clinic rooms are necessary to operate the hospital. It was a main concern that the interior image from a street produces a symbol of A+ animal hospital as well as atypical design language produces all the required space in 53㎡. It was important to re interpret programs as much as to design space efficient furniture.

Gretel House by Simon Gill Architects

June 16th, 2013 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Simon Gill Architects

Gretel (a wire-haired miniature dachshund) found her existing conservatory cold and poorly related to her garden.  This scheme therefore replaces the conservatory with a new extension that fully opens out to her grounds. Her requirement for the possibility of being fed tit-bits of grilled sausages led to the design including a barbeque, which becomes an extension of the side wall to the kitchen/ living area.

There is an adjacent seat where her owners can sit and pamper her in the sun. The main opening to the extension containing the sliding doors has an outside “raincoat” of brick with a smooth inner lining expressing  the cavity wall and creating a sense of interior comfort.  Bespoke cast stone forms a masonry course over the lintel which resolves the weight of the wall above and emphasizes the openings of the weep holes.  The floor is resin with underfloor heating, providing a comfortable lounging surface that pleasantly warms her tummy.

The relocation of the police station to the edge of the city will give a strong impulse to the future development of the harbour site. The judicious positioning and dimensioning of its compact, floating office volume ensures that it fits in with the structure and scale of the former harbour area.
