Villa at Amundön in Brottkärr, Gothenburg by Wingårdh Arkitektkontor (designed using AutoCAD)

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

Article source: Wingårdh Arkitektkontor

In spite of its location by the sea Gothenburg has very few residences with sites by the water. This unique site therefore called for special care and treatment, and for various reasons Wingårdh has designed buildings on it on three different occasions and for three different clients. The house that has now been built is for a family consisting of two adults, two teenage daughters and a small son.

Wohnhaus pircher, planit C in Toblach, Italy by Comfort Architecten

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

Article source: Comfort Architecten

A generous single family home in Toblach, South Tyrol / Italy. The basic characteristics of this building are the staggering of the different volumes and the central courtyard. Thanks to this concept it is possible to guide light into parts of the basement, where the fitness and wellnes area is located. The ground floor houses the entrance area, a work room, and a spacious living space oriented towards the atrium, with a lowered level couch area. The kitchen and dining area, staggered on a higher level, can be reached by a wide staircase, a true design element. Another half floor up, there are the bedrooms of the building, as well as a small apartment, also accessible via an external staircase. At the top level is the master bedroom with an open bathroom and a dressing room.

The Patient Gardener in Politecnico di Milano, Italy by Visiondivision

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

Article source: Visiondivision

Visiondivision was invited as guest professors by Politecnico di Milano for their week-long workshop MIAW2. The workshop, playing with the metaphor of forests, aimed to generate new visions to explain the contemporary and immediate future ways of being in the spirit of green design, resilience, recycling, and ethical consciousness. Our intention with our project was to construct a study retreat at the campus with patience as the main key for the design. If we can be patient with the building time we can reduce the need for transportation, waste of material and different manufacturing processes, simply by helping nature grow in a more architectonic and useful way. The final result can be enjoyed at Politecnico di Milano in about 60 years from now.

Paisano Green Community in El Paso, Texas by Workshop 8 Architecture (designed using Vectorworks and Sketchup Pro)

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

Article source: Workshop 8

In February of 2010 The Housing Authority of The City of El Paso held a national design competition to help them create the “greenest affordable housing development in the country”. This 73-unit, LEED Platinum, senior housing neighborhood represents a bold new direction in affordable housing and HACEP is leading the way. The project is a mix of one and two bedroom units, nine single room occupancies (SROs), and a central, iconic community building housing office and meeting space — all of which are designed to be wheel-chair adaptable and have 100% visitability.

Celtic Museum in Glauburg, Germany by Kada Wittfeld Architektur

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

Article source: Kada Wittfeld Architektur

A museum for Celtic art, in direct proximity to a historic burial mound. Added Value Similar to an excavated archaeological find, the metal body of the museum juts out from the landscape and forms a counterpart to the burial mound. More of a mysterious object itself rather than architecture, the museum should be stumbled upon by its visitors as a marker of landscape discovery.

Front to Back Infill in Ottawa, Canada by Colizza Bruni Architecture (designed using AutoCAD and SketchUp)

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

Article source: Colizza Bruni Architecture

Front to back infill is an animated, front to back semi-detached which boasts two small yet spacious light-filled homes. The design was a collaboration of two architects, each designing one of the homes, and working together to fuse the two designs seamlessly into one another. The approach was to situate the two homes front to back instead of the traditional side to side. One home would face the street and engage the public realm, while the other would inhabit the private realm of the rear yard. Each unit is designed to take advantage of its exclusive position on the site resulting in two unique homes with their own distinctive character and personality.

Ordinary House in Shiga, Japan by FORM/Kouichi Kimura Architects

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

Article source: FORM/Kouichi Kimura Architects

This is a house which is built in new residential area. The area has no special character and most of the houses are built by house builders. When I face to a situation like this, whether I like it or not, I am made to think about it. My question is… “Do most of people want to have nothing special, just an ordinary house in an ordinary land? My answer is in this house. As an architect this is my solution to a social situation like this. Externally the house appears as a simple volume with prefabricated windows.
