Adzuki House in Himeji-Shi, Japan by Naoko Horibe

Saturday, August 27th, 2011

Article source: Naoko Horibe

This is a three-story residence on 83.60 m2 land, with three sides facing the roads. We designed into a planar and compact three-story house allowing car and bicycle parking space. The trees in the courtyard can be viewed from each room, so you can sense the turn of the season indoors.  We placed a large window sash in the corridor to allow viewing the trees from the bathroom, not adjacent to the courtyard, in response to the clientfs request.

Shanmen bathhouse

Shanmen, a villagelocatedin the mountains near Tianshui in Gansu Province, asked BaO architects and the Children of Madaifuassociation to help them build a small community bathhouse. The villagers and the schoolshad no possibility to wash in the town since there is neither public facility of any kind, nor private bathrooms in the houses. The precarious hygiene conditions are source of many discomforts, infections, diseases, plagues and even outbreaks of epidemics.

Doughnut House in Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan by Naoi Architecture & Design Office

Saturday, August 27th, 2011

Article source: Naoi Architecture

This project was a residential building for a husband-and-wife couple in rural Ibaraki prefecture. The area surrounding the generously-sized plot was not heavily built up, giving the site a calm sense of privacy without too much of the noise, threat of crime and other stresses associated with the city. The adjacent areas consisted of a mix of fields and houses, many of which were located on plots of land whose boundaries were not clearly demarcated from each other. With these conditions in mind, we decided to create a home that would consist of “an open space with ambiguous borders and boundaries.”

Anticipated completion, November 2011

The Hawai’i Wildlife Center is a non-profit conservation organization which will operate Hawai’i’s first wildlife recovery center when this building is completed in late 2011. Located in Halaula, North Kohala, on the Big Island of Hawai’i, the HWC is dedicated to the conservation and recovery of Hawai’i’s vulnerable, too often endangered native wildlife through hands-on treatment, research, training, science education, and cultural programs. The new complex will consist of three integrated and sustainably designed components: a wildlife care and response facility, an interpretive and outreach lanai and native species garden, and an open-air education pavilion.

Busan Opera House Proposal in South Korea by Weava Architects

Saturday, August 27th, 2011

Article source: WEAVA Architects

With the development of North Port also comes the exaltation of the city of Busan.  A resonating voice glorifies the city and its inhabitants, and the strength in the capacity of this voice to evoke thought, inspiration and emotion increases with each successive stage of development.  The voice carries forward throughout the world, ushering the city of Busan into a new cultural era while recognizing the history of the people who identify with it.  From the mountains embracing the city, an echo resounds across the community and recalls the beacon mounds, which have been traditionally used as a method of communication beyond large distances and are currently celebrated for awe inspiring beauty.  In North Port, the mountain’s echo joins the voice of exaltation in the design of the Busan Opera House, forming a harmonious relationship composing the new cultural voice of the city.

Extension of Gösta Museum in Serlachius, Finland by Dellekamp Arquitectos + Periférica

Saturday, August 27th, 2011

Article source: Dellekamp Arquitectos + Periférica

A line is a dot that went for a walk –Paul Klee

The project preserves the historical value and prominence of the original building by smoothly integrating it to the new museum. The new museum is a linear sequence of buildings scaled to the original building. Its thread of volumes not only has a light footprint but also confers an interweaving rhythm to its linear promenade. The space divisions functionally conform to all aspects comprised in the program. Interior and exterior, empty space and exhibit space, nature and building are connected through a series of passages, ramps and crossovers. The interiors offer interesting views and spatial experiences by playing on heights and light.
