Tunnel Monitoring Complex Hausmannstaetten in Austria by Dietger Wissounig Architekten

 
May 24th, 2013 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Dietger Wissounig Architekten

The large complex of buildings nestled on level ground along the new Hausmannstaetten bypass road covers three functions: tunnel control centre, central repair shop and road maintenance depot. In order to keep the intrusion to a minimum, the building was interpreted as part of the landscape. It follows the course of the road and the green roofs, which regulate the climate and blend in with the fields farmed in strips.

Tsm3 Unstable House in Madrid, Spain by Carlos Arroyo Arquitectos

 
May 24th, 2013 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Carlos Arroyo Arquitectos

TSM3  Unstable House combines the restoration of the ground floor of a 59,80 sqm terraced property in the centre of Madrid, and the construction of 2,5 new floors on top, with 154 sqm. The design dematerializes the original construction into a flexible home-cum-office that can change anytime. All the elements that define the living space are in a state of flux. The architecture does not seek to define and limit through fixed elements such as structures, walls or gaps, but rather through a series of devices producing actions or situations.

14 Official Proteccion Housing in Ibiza, Spain by Castell-Pons Arquitectes

 
May 23rd, 2013 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Castell-Pons Arquitectes

The project combines the preexistences and the urban development conditions, to interact with the users’ way of life. 

City. Interaction architecture – surroundings. 

On the one hand, we try to give a response to the complex surroundings by raising a building with an own geometry. A volume with different heights that takes the most advantage of solar orientation and ventilation where the game between emptinesses, hollows and interior court gets the maximum use of the space.
