Ant Farm House in Taipei, Taiwan by XRANGE

Wednesday, July 5th, 2017

Article source: XRANGE 

Xrange wraps a new layer of 80- 177cm wide by 7m high living spaces around an existing indigenous stone house to create an “extreme” new house of outrageous living proportion.  The newly added programs of pantry, bar, study, library, dog house and bathrooms are new “rooms” averaging about 4m2 in footprint, but with soaring 7m headroom.  The new house becomes a sequence of small narrow vertical spaces that interlock like the spaces within an ant colony.

Article source: CIVIC – TheCloudCollective

In the Tilburg railway zone, the construction of the LocHal took off this week. Within the contours of the monumental locomotive hall, CIVIC architects in collaboration with Braaksma & Roos Architecten and Inside Outside, designed a large public building. The project houses a public library, workspaces, conference rooms, exposition spaces, an art school, a glass music hall and an elevated foyer overlooking the city. The building adds a contemporary layer to the ancient typology of the library. It functions as a public space where visitors can read and lend books and other media but at the same time are stimulated to collectively share and develop new knowledge.

This project aims at developing the concept of “House for Trees”, a series of a prototypical housing design that targets to provide green space within high density neighborhood.

Design Description

Enshi Tujia and Miao Autonomous Prefecture is located at the southwestern part of Hubei Province.

The volumetric envelope is almost  the first of the premises when confronting preexisting and program requirements. The contradiction between a latent hostility in an apparent idyllic condition of the place is also.

Arrow Studio in Victoria, Australia by nervegna reed architecture

Wednesday, July 5th, 2017

Article source: nervegna reed architecture 

The Arrow Studio was conceived as an out of focus, reflective vortex in the Australian landscape.

Our client Mr. White retired to the countryside near Hanging Rock in Victoria a few years before the project started. His brief was to build a small gallery in the back yard facing the bush, where he could hang paintings and photos and also use as a studio. For security reasons, as well as to maximize hanging space, we were asked to have minimal windows, and for those windows to be framed in a way that intruders could not break in.
