Hoan House in Nha Trang, Vietnam by Vo Trong Nghia Architects + ICADA

 
August 12th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Vo Trong Nghia Architects

The house is located in Nha Trang, a city in central Vietnam surrounded by the beautiful ocean and mountains. The client wanted a large house with a large garden. Answering to this request, a single roof is designed as a hanging garden to plant numerous trees and plants on it. The local building code, however, requires almost 50% of the roof area to be covered by gray or orange-color tilings and to be sloped. To obey this rule but maximize the green area atop, the roof is divided into parallel bands of greened roofs and  tiled roofs in an alternating sequence.

Villa Sunnano in Sweden by Murman Arkitekter

 
August 11th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Murman Arkitekter

The brief was to design a family house on a north facing triangular promontory, overgrown with pine and blueberry bushes, covered with large boulders. The first sketches were made in 2010 and were put on hold until 2013. The project was completed in 2015.

Connected with the water front in all directions; except on one side, due to the risk of flooding.

We wanted to take advantage of the site’s unique conditions and make a dwelling with maximum contact with the surrounding nature and water but with respect to privacy.

The Barn House in Diamond Point, New York by Sigurd Larsen Design & Architecture

 
August 11th, 2016 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Sigurd Larsen Design & Architecture

The idea of working with repeated motives of a barn gable is inspired by the American painters Charles Sheeler and Andrew Wyeth. Sculptural monoliths of barns are orientated according to the sloping landscapes giving interesting compositions where many volumes in various directions can be seen as a layered additive structure.

Article source: Cheungvogl 

Hong Kong based architecture studio Cheungvogl has designed NEW AARCH, the New Architecture School of Aarhus as a two-storey building that provides active workshops and public exhibitions on the ground level. The upper level accommodates theoretical work and quiet reading and working areas.

The NEW AARCH reuses the existing buildings as a new social hub to connect the public with the school over food, exhibitions and events. The design integrates the existing buildings and offers them a new lease of life by transforming the former Institut for (X) and the northern buildings into cafes, bookstore and meeting spaces. The existing buildings intersect with the public central exhibition spaces of the NEW AARCH, forming a new cultural and social center that connects the public life of the campus with the Godsbanen.

The National Shooting Centre was built for the Pan American Games in 2007. The built has been renovated by Vigliecca & Associados to meet Olympic standards without changing the identity of the original structure.

Although it is a recent construction, the building had to attend more specific standards established by the International Shooting Sport Federation and also needed maintenance upgrades for the target system as well as the air conditioning, hydraulic and electrical systems.

The project focused on meeting Olympic requirements, which included three times more seating capacity as well as making sure it would be useful after the Olympics once left as a legacy.

The Zopfmatte residential complex aims to help and encourage residents to live independently in their own homes, whilst meeting their needs in every stage of life. The Zopfmatte housing concept demonstrates a forward-looking understanding of living arrangements for the elderly. In Suhr, the political, social and individual independence sought by (very) elderly residents is construed as assisted independence. The necessary occupational and organisational structures have been consistently integrated into the project. An on-site contact team is available to residents on a daily basis. Interfaces to the community are in place. The contact team plays a key role in the Zopfmatte operating concept. It consists of a contact person and a caretaker with additional responsibilities. Together they take care of the service office for the complex. Their main task is to help residents achieve independence, to provide them with information and to offer organisational advice if necessary, for example in their dealings with authorities and official bodies. Administrative operations in Zopfmatte are financed by the tenants and apartment owners by means of a flat-rate solidarity fee. Based on these conditions, \”Ageing in Place\” is achieved.
