Holistic Living in Wannsee, Germany by GRAFT

Friday, June 10th, 2016

Article source: GRAFT 

GRAFT designed a single-family house and two semi-detached houses, all of them environment-friendly buildings that join mobility, energy and health. The project is an unrivaled holistic approach that connects modern architecture, innovative building equipment and e-mobility as well as sustainability and physical health. The houses even generate a surplus of energy that will be used to charge an e-car that the tenant rents with the house.

Berliner Altbau in Germany by marc benjamin drewes ARCHITEKTUREN & schneideroelsen

Wednesday, June 8th, 2016

Article source: marc benjamin drewes ARCHITEKTUREN & schneideroelsen

Small and cautious interventions try not to destroy the special atmosphere and to retrieve hidden qualities in the refurbishment of a typical Berlin apartment from around 1900.

In three rooms several layers of old color were taken off the extensive moulding on the ceiling. Behind the thick layers of color parts of the original ceiling frescos appeared. Since the ceilings were not painted again, the rooms are being characterized by a lively and diverse feeling full of history. The slight irregularities of a rough lime cement plaster on the walls are equally far away from a too monotonous perfectly smooth surface. The old hardwood flooring was sanded off and treated with a mixture of oil and wax.

Transformation of a video library to a 750 m2 nursery.

The one storey building of a former video library is – except of one longitudinal side – surrounded by soil. The original floor plan with its polygon shape and its unusual depth turns daylight to the essential aspect of the design concept.

Netherlands Embassy Berlin in Germany by OMA

Wednesday, March 9th, 2016

Article source: OMA

The Netherlands Embassy is a disciplined cube with equally disciplined irregularities which aims to facilitate a better understanding of Berlin, confronting divergent ideas about how the city, with its complexity, heaviness, opacity, and beauty, should build / rebuild. Traditional planning guidelines of the former West Berlin demanded that new buildings in the neighbourhood (the Roldandufer in Mitte) reflect the local 19th century architectural style. Planning officials in the former East Berlin were more open to innovation. As a result, OMA combined an obedient approach (strictly fulfilling the block’s perimeter) with a disobedient one (building an isolated cube).

“Room 304 – The Gardenhouse in MICHELBERGER HOTEL” in Berlin, Germany by Sigurd Larsen Design & Architecture

Tuesday, February 16th, 2016

Article source: Sigurd Larsen Design & Architecture 

With this room you get a whole house. Pure and calm from the outside the many doors and windows reveal a warm wooden interior. Here you find bedroom, sauna and kitchen open to the outside garden. One door opens to a staircase leading to a guestroom and large hammock overlooking the interior garden.
Elements of a playhouse speak to the guest’s childish side. But the house is kept pure and sharp to take this imaginative game of play into an adult mind.
