We have already made designs for SZÁMALK before, such as the reconstruction of their 40-year-old headquarter. Among those plans, the 242 people capacity lecture hall of the center building at Etele Street was realized.

House in Nagaoka, Japan by Daigo Ishii + Future-scape Architects

Article source: Ishii + Future-scape Architects

It locates in the downtown of the city with 300,000 people in northern region where it snows heavily with 3 m deep at maximum. The family is composed of grandparents, parents and 2 children.  The building of the laundry factory and shop that the client family run was left and only a part of the house was rebuilt.

The factory and the house were not connected due to the building regulation that controlled the direct connection between the old building and the new one. Instead, between both buildings, an alley covered with big eaves was disposed. The eaves that is covered with prevent the alley from the snow in the winter and the alley functions as semi-indoor space for connecting both buildings.

House on Hoopers Island in Maryland by David Jameson Architect

Sunday, January 29th, 2012

Article source: David Jameson Architect

This 2,200 square-foot residence is located on a Chesapeake Bay barrier island near the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, an estuarine marshland ecosystem, and an important stop along the Atlantic Flyway. The project conceptually fuses architectonic form with the natural elements of the site. Positioned between a salt meadow marsh, a pine forest, and the bay, the architecture is conceived to be at one with the water, the horizon, and the sky. The idea of an elemental architecture is explored in the relationship between the simple form of the building and the agrarian structures that dot the surrounding area.

Filadelfia Corporate Suites in Mexico City by Bunker Arquitectura

Sunday, January 29th, 2012

Article source: Bunker Arquitectura

What happens when the concept of a project is reduced to a facade in the process of its development? Are purely aesthetic aims valid in architecture? Is façadism something worthwhile? Are we to become architectural dermatologists?

A client contacted us to design a hotel for corporate suites in Napoles, a residential neighborhood in Mexico City that has been rapidly converting to office use over the past few years. The plot was located across the street from the convention center of the World Trade Center, by far the busiest office building in the city. The suites were intended to accommodate businesspeople visiting the WTC and the year round expositions.

Hotel Residence in Atacama, Northern Chile by LAN Architecture

Sunday, January 29th, 2012

Article source: LAN Architecture


Extreme is the word that keeps coming back on the table at the time of the study.  Extreme but necessary is the choice to implement life and activity in the region.  Extreme is the site, the climate, the drought, the light, the horizontal dimension of the territory.  Extreme is also the way the place will be used: without schedule, without rules, without connection to the site, lost in the middle of the desert.  Extreme is the fact that once there, there is no alternative but to live in this very hotel.  Extreme is also the time given to draw a project that embraces all the factors.

OH House by Atelier Tekuto

OH’s lot was shaped irregularly and is 1.5 m lower then the road.  OH’s top priority was parking space for a car.  We created a parking space with web-like steel material, where light can filter from the web onto the underground level.  Looking up from there, it looks as though a car is floating.  Total of 6 people, 3 of OH’s immediate family, his parents and sister, will live in this house.  “More specific the conditions are on a project, less deviation from the concept” says Yamashita.  “If client and architect can share the visual image, cost can be adjusted by the architect’s know-how.  However, structural strength and insulation function for dweller environment will never be compromised for the sake of budget.  On the other hand, the interior’s material can contribute to lower cost with the consideration to the family structure that changes with time.

Devious Building in Campello, Spain by Momo estudio SCP

Sunday, January 29th, 2012

Article source: Momo estudio SCP

It is all about housing full of watery sensations, undulating geometries and ethereal materials to live close to the sea and into it, every single hour, every day.

The facade emerges as the demand of a new architecture, by the reflection of its alive and changing surroundings, having every intention of running from false architectural stereotypes, published as authentic for another unrelated to the popular architecture history. With it, a vitreous facade is materialized, which will attract the sea and horizon, giving it back, interpreting, translating and domesticating to those pedestrians; observers beyond horizons.

This house is located in Eifukucho, Tokyo.  We designed this for a couple with a child.

The site has three significant characteristics.  First, it is located in an upland residential area with an excellent view.  Second, its shape is unique, like a flag and a staff.  Third, it has a long driveway, longer than 15 meters.

Vision in Yamanashi, Japan by Takehiko Nez Architects

Sunday, January 29th, 2012

Article source: Takehiko Nez Architects

“Extension of spatial relations”

The existing building built along a trunk road in a suburban city, had been converted by ourselves from a jewelry shop into the hairdressers 7 years ago. This time the client asked us to extend the floor area and change the facade to a more inviting design. Therefore we designed the extension by introducing a subtle element, which works in the same way as a veil changes a person’s facial expression.
