Lincoln Street Residence in Bethesda, Maryland by EL STUDIO

Friday, March 9th, 2018

Article source: EL STUDIO

This modest renovation resists the current inner-ring suburban trend towards demolition of older, smaller homes in favor of new over-scaled ‘farmhouses.’ The clients, a young family with two small children wanted more space for play and individual bedrooms but expressed a desire not to ‘lose one another’ in a home too vast or impersonal. Their one-story bungalow, a relic of the first wave of suburban development in this area, has been expanded through the careful integration of appropriately scaled additional program and volume. The modest scale of the addition both responds to the client’s programmatic needs and limits the environmental footprint of the proposal. A carport and efficiency apartment on the first floor were removed to make way for a new addition containing a first-floor playroom and a partial second story with side-by-side bedrooms for the children connected through a ‘Jack & Jill’ bathroom as well as a new Master Suite. The family room’s double-height volume binds all of the above and provides access to the garden beyond through a covered porch tucked under the Master Suite. Strategically placed south-facing roof apertures capture and direct daylight deep into the north-facing playroom and porch year-round, reducing the need for artificial lighting. New expansive windows frame views to a mature Japanese maple tree in the yard.

Plastic House II in Gothenburg, Sweden by Unit Arkitektur AB

Friday, March 9th, 2018

Article source: Unit Arkitektur AB 

West of Gothenburg lies Sweden’s fourth biggest island – Hisingen. Travelling from the centre of Gothenburg towards the western side of Hisingen, you first pass Volvos industrial production units before reaching the coast and the ferry terminal which connects Hisingen to the northern archipelago.

Just north of Hjulvik´s ferry terminal, a shift in the landscape occurs – from Hisingens plains (former seafloor) to Bohusläns coastal landscape with its ancient and sweeping outcrops of gneiss and granite. The last kilometre to the site winds and rises before finally you are rewarded with a great view back towards the ferry terminal. This area is called Hästevik.

Ballet Memphis in Tennessee by archimania

Friday, March 9th, 2018

Article source: archimania 

A nationally acclaimed professional ballet company dreamed for 15 years of relocating their enterprise to a more prominent location in Memphis, Tennessee. The Company decided on a new site within a centrally located, growing performance arts district. The Company sought to uplift the community beyond dance and exercise with an inspiring community space filled with creativity and vibrancy—for Memphians to find new ways to share in each other’s accomplishments. Ballet Memphis believes their art-form is all about soaring—learning to fly and getting up off the ground. Their new, civic-oriented facility extends their mission, physically performing an energetic message about culture and arts from within the heart of Memphis. With large windows and public courtyards, the building contributes symbiotically within the thriving district. The building is designed to engage the public in movement, wellness, culture, and community connection.

Hotel Plesnik is a boutique family hotel found in the heart of a nature park, boasting a tradition spanning over eighty years. Its exceptional location at the end of a glacial valley offers an unforgettable view of the majestic peaks of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps. As Logarska Valley is claimed by many to be one of the most beautiful valleys in Europe, the amazing view of this natural wonder was the obvious choice for one of the leading motifs in the renovation of the hotel’s wellness centre.

Article source: TSURUTA ARCHITECTS

An impressive large staircase in a turn of the 20th century house made the circulation generous, light and airy, but its dominance compromised the entire layout. The challenge was to replace this once favoured staircase whilst enhancing this previous spacious quality.
