House of Air in San Francisco, CA by Mark Horton / Architecture

Sunday, July 17th, 2011

Article source: Mark Horton / Architecture

“National Park”, “Historic Building”, “LEED Certified”, “Architecture”, “Amusement Park” — five terms which are typically not used in the same sentence to describe a single building.

House of Air, started in 2010 by two young entrepreneurs interested in the action sports world, is a trampoline facility that caters to the discriminating taste of the young, energetic and affluent population of active San Francisco.  The breathtaking site is at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge and in the Golden Gate National Park, with expansive views out to the San Francisco Bay that become even more apparent when the 45′ wide glazed hanger door is opened.  Inside the historic biplane hanger, a large field trampoline for bouncing sits along side a trampoline dodge ball court and three performance trampolines used for both competitive jumping as well as ski / snowboard / wakeboard training.   Flanking the trampoline area are two pavilions housing a café, meeting facilities, lockers, and a lounge. Translucent blue walls lit from within are graphic interpretations of the vertical motion which takes place throughout the facility.

Maison Gauthier in Canton Bern, Switzerland by Bauzeit Architekten GmbH

Sunday, July 17th, 2011

Article source: Bauzeit Architekten GmbH

The project is articulated basing on two really simple spatial typologies. The first one, a compacted and pure single-storied level, figures the dwelling which opens onto The Alps through huge window panels, thus focusing on a frame of beautiful views. Consequently, the glazing surfaces on the entire level, structure the façade in a generous way. The panoramic window panels, fold inside thus providing a special expression to the ensemble, also forming the terrace-covered area and protected from the sun. The difference of enclosure between North and South façades, become two plain and clear lectures, two faces: “behind” the street and “on the front” The Alps as a visual limit.

Collaborating with creative agency LOVE, The Johnnie Walker House is an experiential, interactive space created to host the most sophisticated ‘Whisky Conversations’. Housed in the 3-storey Sinan Mansion, located in the heart of Shanghai’s Central Business District, the space was conceived with the intent to engage and advocate loyalty amongst premium whisky drinkers.

ECA-OAI Office Building in Vevey, Switzerland by Personeni Raffaele Schärer Architectes

Sunday, July 17th, 2011

Article source: Personeni Raffaele Schärer Architectes

The new building completes a city block in the centre of Vevey. The urban void be­hind the buildings was a residual space used as a parking lot and for utility purposes. The intervention took advantage of the void and turned it into a main hall for all the buildings of the block. The once neglected space became a common area with a big patio and a green roof, offering a garden view for all the buildings around it. The new five floors office building frames the roof garden without enclosing it and maintains a wide visual panorama on the city and the mountains.

Allée Verte – Child care centre and dwellings in Paris, France by Clermont Architectes

Sunday, July 17th, 2011

Construction of a child care centre and dwellings

The neighborhood of the Allée Verte, located between the Boulevard Beaumarchais and the Boulevard Richard Lenoir, near the Bastille, is characterized by the heteroclite aspect of its buildings. An old suburban architecture meets, not always easily, more modern real-estate constructions. The building of the Allée Verte is a part of this environment thanks to a simple balance between volumes and materials.
