100 Norfolk in New York by ODA

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018

Article source: ODA

Beyond an acute awareness of elements such as context and the needs of its community, ODA New York’s brand DNA is earmarked, in particular, by a special dexterity with—or even mastery of—the city’s byzantine zoning code; a kind of sixth sense for navigating the various restrictions and regulations in a way that enables ODA to consistently challenge architectural convention. That zoning facility is on full display in the brand’s latest multifamily masterstroke. Indeed, located on NYC’s lower east side, 100 Norfolk quite literally turns convention on its head.

Article source: L’eau Design + Dongjin Kim(Hongik University)

When we say ‘renovation’ or ‘remodeling,’ of architecture, we often think of repairing a run-down building that has lost its function over time. These days, however, it is easy to see unfinished structures that have been suspended mid-construction due to profitability issues.

Muju Dada Pension in Jeollabuk-do, South Korea by KDDH

Friday, July 13th, 2018

Article source: KDDH

The space has taken shape after the land. Those who live their lives among the bustle of hundreds or thousands of people each day, come to this place in search of rest or healing.

The spaces of Dada Pension, taking after the site, are made to be independent but unable to exist separately. Dada Pension, which has a somewhat complicated circulation between spaces, is planned so that people can escape from the city and find calm, separate themselves from other people, or connect with people who are similar to themselves.

Venue hotel in Nha Trang, Vietnam by Aline architect

Wednesday, July 11th, 2018

Article source: Aline architect

Located in the central square of Nha Trang City, the building stands out among regular square blocks. The façade area is quite narrow, so the architect have transformed the monotonous glasses into colorful “walles”. A part of elevation space is used as a place to plant trees, as a result, it creates “green” balconies, brings the comfort feelings to the users. The façade area is quite narrow but the land plot is such a corner plot so the whole room is designed to receive direct natural wind and sunlight. All rooms come with sea views.

Griffin School in Austin, Texas by MURRAY LEGGE ARCHITECTURE

Wednesday, July 11th, 2018


Griffin School is a college preparatory high school located in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Austin, TX. The school’s diverse, liberal arts curriculum and creative student body define its reputation. For many years the school has occupied an assemblage of buildings in a residential neighborhood. The campus consists of a repurposed church, a house converted to classrooms, and a small workshop. To accommodate growing enrollment and to create an environment that embodies their core values, Griffin School added a new two-story classroom building to the existing ensemble.

Educational Complex Kajzerica in Croatia by SANGRAD + AVP

Tuesday, July 10th, 2018

Article source: SANGRAD + AVP

The concept of the Cultural – Educational Complex in Kajzerica has been deducted from a contextual inspiration: by shifting the direction of the buildings from the street of the old Kajzerica Neighbourhood, we get a public area and an extension of the urban space under a green canopy. The lifted classroom volume slabs are outdoing the access to the school yard, opening transparency, lucidity, continuity and relations within the site, metaphorically substituting crowns and shadows of the trees, freeing the public space and rendering an artificial forest merged with the authentic green surface.
