Qicun Hot Spring in Xinzhou, China by ENOTA

Thursday, January 4th, 2018

Article source: ENOTA 

The Qicun thermal complex has been designed as an expansion of the existing spa centre in order to offer a new higher level of service. Both in terms of its appearance and its organisation, the new design will later serve as a prototype for overhauling the existing capacities of the complex. The new spa centre is one of many such complexes in the town of Qicun, which boasts a long-established tradition of thermal tourism. The north China region of Shanxi, with Qicun as it constituent part, is also renowned for its numerous traditional temples and authentically preserved historical towns.

Extension of offices for Byggom AB in Lund, Sweden by Johan Sundberg Arkitektur

Thursday, January 4th, 2018

Article source: Johan Sundberg Arkitektur 

At the edge of every city there are sparsely populated areas with various industrial and commercial buildings and warehouses. The houses are practically indistinguishable from one another, often built in simple materials and using the same jargon. Areas like these are problematic for a number of reasons, and yet they are accepted as an unavoidable part of the urban nature, not unlike a paunch in middle age or rubbish outside of an ice cream dealer in the summertime.

Kindergarten and crèche in Prangins, Switzerland by PIERRE-ALAIN DUPRAZ

Thursday, January 4th, 2018

Article source: PIERRE-ALAIN DUPRAZ 

The new Prangins kindergarten is conceived as one big house that has been placed on a sloping site. The cruciform structure resulting from the interlocking volumes allow it to have a special relationship with the neighbouring ensemble. The four volumes, which are mutually staggered by a third of each unit’s floor height and interleaved, make the building appear to be smaller and visually less obtrusive.

Mid Century Modern Residence in Montgomery County, Maryland by Studio Twenty Seven Architecture

Thursday, January 4th, 2018

Article source: Studio Twenty Seven Architecture

The mid-century modern home was less than two thousand square feet, yet beautifully sited on a densely wooded hill.  The property provided an extraordinary amount of privacy and seclusion for a house less than four miles from the District of Columbia.  Despite the very limited amount of space for a family of four, the clients purchased the property immediately.   Five years later, with their two children rapidly approaching teen-age years, the time had come to look at a house expansion.

Pavillon Madeleine in Kayl, Luxembourg by WW+

Thursday, January 4th, 2018

Article source: WW+ 

Together with the newly designed “Park Ouerbett”, the restaurant “Pavillon Madeleine” forms the new green centre of the community of Kayl-Tétange, in the south of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, close to the industrial city of Esch-sur-Alzette. The restaurant building is located at the intersection of the north-south road linking Kayl to Tétange and the circular path of the park. Its footprint of 10 m x 22 m x 4.5 m allows it to harmoniously blend into the park structure. The open space at the front, which features an outdoor dining area with approximately 40 seats and a barbecue area, defines the entrance to the restaurant and leads guests straight into the inside of the pavilion via a glass door. Here there is room for a further 40 guests. In front of the pavilion, seating steps provide direct access and contact with the water of Kayl creek, the quality of which has been upgraded through cleansing and other minor improvements of its banks. All the accesses to the pavilion and the inside are designed to be barrier-free.
