Sustainable Market Square – Casablanca in Netherlands by TomDavid Architecten

Saturday, December 1st, 2012

Article source: TomDavid Architecten

The site is situated right next to the Medina and in consequence interwoven with the indispensable social and economic structures of the Old City.

Both legal and illegal markets dominate the streetscape and are vital to the local economy. The downside of this density of commercial street business is the pollution and the decay of the public space. The design will have to serve as an example on how to improve the practical aspects of the market but leaving the existing social economic structures intact.

Redevelopment of Malga Fosse in Trento, Italy By Organic Scapes and Architecture [OS+A]

Saturday, December 1st, 2012

Article source: Organic Scapes and Architecture [OS+A]

The concept design proposal is based on the social aspect that defines every manufactured product within its geographical scope. This social aspect manifests itself through the design of an externally equipped public space, internal common areas with natural light, an elaborate landscape and hard-scape design, a predisposition of interesting observation points and the contemplation of their surrounding context, and the desire to accentuate a constant permeable state between external and internal spaces.

CD House in Miane, Italy by Donner Sorcinelli Architecture

Saturday, December 1st, 2012

Article source: Donner Sorcinelli Architecture

The surrounding hills, with their pleasant scenery and colors, were the cornerstone of the entire creative process around which developed the project. The decision to base the morphology of the house on a residential primary archetype, was in fact created by the conceptual abstraction of forms in the local urban morphology, according to the principle of cultural sustainability that draws its identity from the landscape, the lifestyles, the fabric settlement and figurative native styles.

Three Courtyards House in Benavente, Portugal by Miguel Marcelino Arquitecto

Saturday, December 1st, 2012

Article source: Miguel Marcelino Arquitecto

The plot  is located in the middle of a “montado” landscape, being the best views to the north with a lake and the skyline punctuated by cork oak trees. The house is organized in a compact volume of two floors, complemented by three courtyards all different in size and features. A first large courtyard, enclosed, intimate, situates on the south side, embracing a big existing cork oak. Next to the back entrance there is another smaller patio, for service. The third courtyard works as a key element in the relationship between home and the north side – it’s a slim space with a large horizontal opening that frames the landscape – it has an atmosphere of a “inner space outdoors”, the light is soft, by reflection on the outer wall that receives direct sunlight. This vertical courtyard communicates with a staircase that leads to an open terrace, the last element of the sequence of spaces, patios and atmospheres that go from more introspective and private to more open and outside.

The shell that houses the restaurant- Karaiskaki Stadium, which is built over the water, was a benchmark in the design proposal.
The wave of the sea that existed in place is introduced in the design of the space in the form of an optically moving roof element. This element, which is the result of parametric design, dominates the environment and gives identity to the restaurant.
