Orientierungsschule Vouvry, Switzerland by Berrel Berrel Kräutler Architekten

Friday, August 28th, 2015

Article source: Berrel Berrel Kräutler Architekten

The Wallisian Alps rise in silhouette above the new Vouvry district school house, which lies on a flat plain between historic Vouvry village and the Rhone river. Larger-than-life commercial structures have long defined the character of settlements along the Rhone valley, and this new construction – which accommodates both classrooms and a sports arena under one roof – fits the mold perfectly.

Extension Of Orientation School in Kerzers, Switzerland by Morscher Architekten BSA SIA AG

Wednesday, August 19th, 2015

Article source:  Morscher  Architekten BSA SIA AG 

The school’s extension responds clearly and confidently to the large neighbouring buildings. A new entrance gives onto a spacious multi-storey hall. The group rooms are stacked one atop the other and can be read as simple boxes in the airspace, resulting in interesting sightlines. The administrative and special use rooms are located on both the lower level and ground floor, while the upper storeys hold the classrooms. The building is constructed of natural, robust materials that already have a lovely patina and are able to withstand a high degree of wear. The façade and some corridor areas are made of concrete. The classroom walls are lined with acoustic panels that double as bulletin boards. The ceiling has been left raw and can be used for heat storage. With this extension of the school’s classroom tract, a compact building has been created with short routes and an interesting central area suitable for a variety of uses.

L’ASTICOT flagship store in Geneva, Switzerland by BUREAU A

Saturday, August 8th, 2015

Article source: BUREAU A

The OSA Group (Organization of Contemporary Architects) was an architectural association formed in the Soviet Union during the 1920’s. It gathered important figures of what became known later as constructivist architecture. For the OSA, the architect was not only a builder, he also had to be a sociologist for the new era, a politician of the built environment, and a skilled technician to engineer the future.

New WHO headquarter extension in Geneve, Switzerland by Paolo Venturella Architecture

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015

Article source: Paolo Venturella Architecture 

The conception of the building starts from the consideration that architecture can not be designed anymore by a single “one move” since it is generating a new worldwide series of almost boring “tilted/lifted/pushed” standard buildings.

The project investigates how to overcome the simplicity generated by a single “one move” creating instead a simple complexity generated by a combination of “more moves”.

Casa Sur Ual in Vella, Switzerland by Christian Müller Architects

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015

Article source: Christian Müller Architects

Villages in the Alpine Region are threatened with being turned into ghost towns. This is being caused by a number of factors. The present building stock has a large portion of second homes which is hardly being used. The amenities offered do not live up to modern standards and there is preciously little room to build new houses. A project by Christian Müller in the Swiss village of Vella is a showcase of how this development can be countered with innovative concepts.

WSDG’s Club NEO in Basel, Switzerland

Tuesday, July 14th, 2015

Article source: Walters Storyk Design Group (WSDG)

ZURICH, SWITZERLAND:  NEO, is a dazzling new club/bar/restaurant located on the ground floor of an upscale high-rise in Zurich’s burgeoning Europaallee Sector.  Although the rapidly gentrifying area is adjacent to the Swiss Railroad Mainstation, the local residents’ chic demographic makes late night clamor particularly objectionable.  Sensitive to potential neighborhood backlash, the venue owners resolved to deflect these latent problems before they became an issue.  Their solution?  Engage Walters-Storyk Design Group-WSDG.

Villa G in Sorengo, Switzerland by SCAPE

Saturday, July 11th, 2015

Article source: SCAPE

The G family home in Sorengo, on the edge of Lugano in Ticino, is the category of villa that Palladio-1 put forward as a contrast with the town house.  The site, a long narrow strip of land on a steep slope, is part of a hilly area, bordered on its short sides by a private road and another property.  On the long sides it is fringed by another site being developed and a wood that is legislatively bound.  To enjoy the fine view of the mountains and part of the lake, the ground level must by raised by three metres.

Dual sports hall in Borex-Crassier, Switzerland by Graeme Mann & Patricia Capua Mann architects dipl. epfl fas sia

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

Article source: Graeme Mann & Patricia Capua Mann architects dipl. epfl fas sia

The expansion of the existing sports hall is the result of a competition and left little margin of freedom because of a limited perimeter. Due to its position, the new extension reinforces the western boundary with the countryside and takes advantage of the break in terrain in order to reduce the impact of volume on the site. The quest for continuity with the existing building dictates the rules in terms of extension volume. The “fusional” approach adopted towards the existing structure allows to define a single entrance for the three sports halls.
