Trojan Egg in Swiss, Switzerland by Camilo Rebelo

Wednesday, December 24th, 2014

Article source:  Camilo Rebelo 

OVO[i] project was a challenge of a deeply restless client, which proposed the construction of a space to install one sculpture from Rui Chafes – Semente[ii]. This room is in the basement of his home in Fideris, located in the Swiss Alps.

This ‘Trojan Egg’ is the first stage of the project OVO. The purpose of this wooden Egg is to create a void, to unveil a new dimension and through it potentiate mystery. Mystery is a condition that is very close to disappear from our civilization. This value is for us one of the main reasons of life, and therefore the Egg is the dimension we choose to express it.

Mühlestrasse residential and studio building in Edlibach, Switzerland by AmreinHerzig

Friday, November 28th, 2014

Article source: AmreinHerzig

The slight rotation compared to the long volumes of the terraced houses and its polygonal form give the tower-like monolithic apartment building a stronger autonomy, thereby benefiting its relationship with the two neighbouring buildings on the other side of the street. This creates a village environment, an expanded street space towards which the building entrances are aligned.

Forestry Installation Building in Biel, Switzerland by bauzeit architekten

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

Article source:  bauzeit architekten

The site of the forestry center extends on both sides of the ‘Reuchenette’ road. To facilitate it’s function, the program’s content focused on only one side. Following the topography of the land, two buildings form an elongated space ending with a court for the maneuvers. The single level building dominates the main street façade and differs, both in form and aspect, from the urban architecture. Its envelope is made of rough and untreated strips of wood. It generates a oriented vertically texture, that dialogues with the forest structure and filters the light and the external views.

New Weiach Kindergarten Development in Weiach, Switzerland by L3P Architekten

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

Article source: L3P Architekten

Diverse operational and economic considerations led to the development of a new kindergarten on the north side of the already existing primary school in Weiach. The new development was realised from pre-fabricated wooden elements. A child-friendly, delicate façade made from artificial lawn naturally moulds into the colour tones of straw gold, red kraut and olive green in the rural village centre and stimulates playful dialogue.

Conversion of st.Lukes Chapel in Bern, Switzerland by Morscher ArchItekten

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

Article source: Morscher ArchItekten

The project involved converting a former chapel built in 1924 in Art Deco style in a Bern neighbourhood and totally defaced in a 1970s renovation into two new apartments. In order to keep the ground floor free of supports and retain the high church windows, the upper apartment was hung as a concrete cube in the former double-storey  nave.
