The new Cultural Centre in Cartaxo stands out for the bold in situ exposed concrete cantilever that, like a “belly of a whale”, projects itself onto the sidewalk and foyer to house the main auditorium. This public building is located between two gables, taking on the modest urban scale of the main square of Cartaxo. The building introduces an iconographic and public character that balances the relationship between the site exiguity and the extensive programme.

Friday, December 23rd, 2011

Article source: Barker Freeman Design Office

With these two proposals for a bar in the East Village in Manhattan, we employed a striking silhouette on the façade to bring presence to the space on the street. With House Bar, we used painted, perforated MDF panels to continue the house profile on the interior, which terminates in a DJ booth at the end of the room. Lighting filters through the perforations to provide ambient illumination.

Blurred House in Melbourne, Australia by BiLD Architecture (designed using Rhino)

Friday, December 23rd, 2011

Article source: BiLD architecture

The first in a series of studies into the adaptation of vernacular Australian suburban typologies, ‘Blurred House’ is a major renovation and extension to an original 1930’s Californian bungalow in Melbourne’s inner-north. Reacting to the established convention of residential extension which prescribes a jarring juxtaposition of existing ‘old’ and introduced ‘new’ architectural elements; the ‘Blurred House’ offers an alternative proposition; that of a blurring between ‘old’ and ‘new’ to produce a hybrid. Gradually transitioning from the vernacular to the contemporary, the division of architectural elements are deliberately ambiguous, producing a unique formal and visual language.

St. Clare’s Parish Center/Early Childhood Development Center in Staten Island, New York by Studio 16 Architecture PLLC collaboration with Stephen Perrella

Friday, December 23rd, 2011

Article source: Studio 16 Architecture PLLC collaboration with Stephen Perrella, AIA


A complex of design strategies configures the solution for the Preschool at St.Clare’s. The intent was to establish a sense of openness and free play for a program involving the guidance and education of young children. The proposed architecture endeavors to mediate the imposition of authority over developing youth by calling into question the role that architecture plays in structuring a learning environment. The site of the renovation is within an existing and highly active gymnasium on a church campus. The preschool is situated adjacent to the gymnasium within the same structure.

like an unfamiliar animal, developed out of a tetris-form, house p sits on top of a slope in the city of klosterneuburg and seams looking into the valley. the sculptural and homogeneous shape is even more intensified by the façade made of pre-finished facing concrete. the entrance from the street-side runs along the backbone-like longitudinal axis passing garage and terrace into the interior sites. after passing living-kitchen, cloakroom and staircase the axis ends facing the glassfront of the living with its breathtaking view over the danube. only the orientation of the pool interrupts with the main orientation of the building and orientates itself along the lower roofed terrace.

The two-floor wooden construction lies directly above a yard with an roofed entrance area which curves in an abrupt slope. The circumferential and vertical silver fir facade not only serves as an filter but also almost imperceptibly directs views to the carefully selected outlooks. The narrow, slightly and both-sidely bent ground plan follows both the course of the road and slightly bends the garden side towards the south.

In the world of medicine where leading edge technology and science are key factors in services provided to patients, the opportunity arose to design the premises for an advanced dentistry practice – the Brighton Implant Clinic. The site is a brick Victorian building in Brighton, United Kingdom and is made up of a basement and four floors above ground. The practise is composed of a dental prosthetics lab where dentures and implants are fabricated on the same day as the patient is being treated, allowing the patient to leave the premises with a concluded treatment not having to return to the practice in the future. The practice also has a state of the art CAT scan allowing three-dimensional imagery of the skull in order to assist surgeons in the placement of implants.
