Cultural Center in Katowice, Poland by PA+U Rafał Mazur

 
March 18th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: PA+U Rafał Mazur 

The cultural center is located in the Dab district of Katowice in Poland –  an area known for mines and industry. The concept of the building links two  important aspects of the site. A green space connection is made from the  northern end traditional Silesian street to the southern border. The edge  between the building and green space is invisible. The roof in the plan of a  ‘Z’ shape rises from the ground level to two floors. The sectional form is  inspired by mines, as all of the programmatic utilities are located  ‘underground’. The building at the street level is integrated to promote  urban interaction.

KVS HOUSE in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Estudio Galera

Article source: Estudio Galera

The lot is situated in Costa Esmeralda, a new private venture in Costa County. A small pine grove at the front of the site, and a steep slope down from the street to the back of the lot. A simple but paramount commission: to focus the program on the smallest portion of the lot as possible, since most of the natural landscape of the lot wants to be preserved. A vacation home thought for a family that wants to use the house for a variety of purposes, such as getting together and enjoying open air activities. The program is centered around two boxes stacked, skewed, balancing each other on top of a half buried stone plinth. As a result, the program takes less than twelve percent of the lot, leaving enough space for a swimming pool and a green dune –part of the landscape.

The House for Seven People

The original house was built 37 years ago with a mixed structure; steel on the ground floor and timber on the first floor. Since its original construction in 1977, the site around the house has dramatically changed. The two-story house is now surrounded by 7-9 story buildings in an area known as the “Urban Village“, which lies between Yamate-Dori and Megro River – a three minute walk from Fudomae Metro Station in Tokyo.

SIX ROOMS 
The Z-Haus consists of two attached row houses constructed on a 50’ x 100’ urban infill lot. The strategy was to build up rather than out to maximize outdoor living space and minimize building footprint. Each house is made up of 6 rooms that are offset at every half story and smoothly joined by a series of half flight stairs.
