Sant Antoni Apartment by CaSA - Colombo and Serboli Architecture | Living space https://www.architonic.com/en/project/casa-colombo-and-serboli-architecture-sant-antoni-apartment/5104904 Wed, 28 Jun 2017 00:00:00 +0200 The project, meant for a bachelor with a penchant for sports and cycling and a passion for design, transformed a highly partitioned, ancient layout, dark apartment into an open-spaced two bedrooms home with a large living space and bespoke features. Major structural reinforcements were needed, since most of the beams were affected, all of the metal reinforcements are hidden. The aim was to create a very masculine yet sophisticated home, using a neutral palette and focusing on different textures. By the entrance, a system of tubes creates a double bicycle rack. Behind these black structures, grey tiles protect the wall from dirt. These 60x60cm porcelain cladding continues into the kitchen fading to a 30x30cm format, then into the bathroom space getting smaller reaching a 10x10cm format in the shower area. This material gives spatial continuity to surfaces all on one side of the project. A wide band of rough surface at the top of the wall surrounding the living area unifies and gi… continue

Artist Studio by Veech x Veech | Living space https://www.architonic.com/en/project/veech-x-veech-artist-studio/5104903 Wed, 28 Jun 2017 00:00:00 +0200 <b>A House for Art</b> The core idea of the multifunctional house is to create an exhibition and living space with an extensive sculpture garden at the edge of a far-reaching valley. The artist-couple’s striking, large-scale works harmonise with the surrounding landscape, the studio with its view over the plain and access to daylight a constant motivation to create further artistic works. From the house interior the view through the fully glazed front side falls onto the towering, kinetic sculptures. The straight-lined architecture profiles restraint, thus accentuating the effect conjured up by the art, both inside and outdoors. A system of multiple terraces exploits the different levels of the terrain, creating extra vantage points and space for the sculptures. The far-flung setting and generous use of glass and transparent materials promote a constant dialogue between building, sculptures and the surrounding landscape. This effect is enhanced by the widely overhanging top s… continue

OUALLIN clothing - Tianan Cyber Park Office/Showroom by Bernard Space Design | Office facilities https://www.architonic.com/en/project/bernard-space-design-ouallin-clothing-tianan-cyber-park-office-showroom/5104902 Wed, 28 Jun 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Traditional expressions of eastern Zen are diversified. However, what we want to express is not the language deliberately posted with such labels but a kind of quiet expression that attaches importance to meaning instead of form. The project covers a showroom of 100 square meters and an office space of 700 square meters. Gene core of the major brand QUALLIN in the showroom is also created by us - trace to its source, and return to simplicity. We intended to break the part that is too formal in eastern Zen. Both our client and us agree to the idea that the design should gives a eastern feeling yet not deliberate, and a feeling of zen style yet not indifferent. The whole design conveys a feeling of simple fashion-a space with style and quality. The entrance design does not present any superfluous element but brings the modern feeling with its own logic of shape and the quality of materials and light. We have integrated the light bands into the whole space as a kind of geometric d… continue

The visual relationship with nature was the guiding motivation behind the choice of this place on the part of the client, a place with which to identify and establish a personal rapport. These were the premises for the project by the architecture studio Marcante-Testa, seen as an investigation of the elements that in the design of the residential space are capable of suggesting pleasant recollections on a domestic, often extra-urban plane, probably drawn from family life: the home as a repository of the most intimate facets of people and their memory, the home as the extension of an outside in which to isolate oneself from the urban context and the world of work. Nature bursts in, light, suggested, somewhat surreal, on the walls for the rooms, incorporating the treetops of the courtyard with designs of leaves. Materials like wicker, Vienna straw a… continue

The building hosts a mix of activities including indoor and outdoor sports facilities, a restaurant, cafeteria, and various public spaces: a pedestrian square, street terraces, park areas for deliveries, bikes and cars. The building is organized vertically with its different activities superimposed on one another, using the roof as a panoramic playground for football and basketball games. The different areas are linked by an open staircase that allows independent accesses.

Raised gardens of Sants in Barcelona by Sergi Godia | Railway stations https://www.architonic.com/en/project/sergi-godia-raised-gardens-of-sants-in-barcelona/5104897 Tue, 27 Jun 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Throughout the past century, the line of train and metro tracks through the district of Sants (Barcelona) has been an open wound in its urban fabric, dividing the district into two virtually unconnected parts along an 800-metre section, from Plaza de Sants to calle Riera Blanca, creating the resulting urban dysfunctions in terms of acoustic pollution and deterioration of the surroundings. In the year 2002 the city’s administration decided to start up an urban renewal project for the Sants railway corridor. Having ruled out the option of putting it underground, it was decided to confine it inside a lightweight, transparent box for a good part of the section, with the roof being turned into an 800-metre-long raised and landscaped boulevard which would later be extended along the neighbouring municipalities as far as Cornellá, giving rise to a 5-km-long “green corridor”. The structure that holds up the building/container is comprised of prefab concrete parts in a sequence on a dia… continue

A simple, elegant tower rises from the ground at the corner, while a podium wraps the east and west corners extending the lines of the adjacent and nearby low-rise buildings. A heavier, darker element hugs the back of the tower, grounding the project and setting off the lighter, more dominate structure. The tight site was the greatest challenge in the design. There was little relief off the sidewalk, so carefully landscaped linear gardens around the tower were designed to relieve and activate the street level, creating an appealing pedestrian experience and reinforcing the residential flavor for this neighborhood.

London Spa by Richard Bell Architecture | Spa facilities https://www.architonic.com/en/project/richard-bell-architecture-london-spa/5104890 Tue, 27 Jun 2017 00:00:00 +0200 <b>A private spa, a hidden sanctuary - a space for reflection.</b> In this recent project by Richard Bell Architecture, as beautifully photographed by Hélène Binet, the light is celebrated and the darkness indulged. A huge volume is illuminated from one end and enclosed by ten thousand handmade bricks, each bearing the thumbprint of its maker. As the light tracks over the rough surface of the bricks, it picks out a shifting landscape of ridges and valleys in miniature. This coarse textured brick is in striking contrast to the glass-like blackness of the pools. The expansive stillness of the water’s surface reflects the space and gives a doubling effect to the volume. This spa and wellness area is an extension to a house in central London. The site offered little above ground space as the openness of the gardens was important to maintain. It is for this reason that a large subterranean volume was created. The volume incorporates pools, a sauna, a steam room, a gym, deluge showers an… continue

The building has undergone a major restructuring and within this framework, the façades are designed to meet a particular challenge, both in terms of image and in terms of energy savings and the environment. A rapid analysis revealed a number positive features: a lovely location in the socalled media triangle, facing Canal plus and TF1, both national broadcasting channels, good visibility along the 150 meters of the façade, perfect exposure to the south and the west, a flexible structure in good condition, a good omen for a successful upgrade. However, the project had to correct a certain number of negative aspects: exposure to noise of street traffic, absence of sun breaks on the highly exposed façades, outmoded architectural image which weakens the presence of the edifice, ambiguous and residual anchoring in the ground penalizing the ground floor. These observations taken into… continue

Spacious patios, cantilevered balconies as well as the wonderfully arranged city garden give “The Garden” its name. Calm courtyards and secluded, idyllic gardens provide greenery and create places of retreat. Plastic building structures and diverse intertwined facades shape the appearance of this superferent design.

Traces of the old 19th century splendour were there – worn wooden floors and ornaments in the form of stucco and carpentry as well as three old tiled ovens – but all those beautiful, old characteristics were painted in thick layers of white color with modern spotlights in all ceilings, which reinforced the feeling of an impersonal office. We noted the colours of the three tiled ovens; green, pink and a yellowish white. Behind a wall that was torn down to access the old piping, we found original 19th century paint on a door frame, suddenly illuminating the entire white space with its powerful mustard yellow tint. We added tones to the original color scale, which worked as a bridge between the powerful original hues, finally ending up with an 8-tone palette that originated from the hidden… continue

Situated on a stretch of beautiful coastline in southern Sweden, it is not difficult to imagine why Karlshamn has had a long surviving tradition of bathing in the sea. The only element missing was a bathhouse, which is the quintessential symbol in Sweden for year round dips in the water. Kallbadhusets Vänner (Friends of the Bathhouse) is the local organisation and catalyst for the town to receive its first bathhouse. Together with local sponsors and the municipality, they were able to realise their collective long-time dream of offering a forum for enjoying the sea all year round. The public swimming hall, a well-known local establishment, is in close proximity to Kallbadhus; as a group, they form a truly unique opportunity to swim in an indoor pool, outdoor pool or hopping into the water from the new bathhouse. Kallbadhus – trans… continue

Beiqijia Technology Business District by Martha Schwartz Partners | Gardens https://www.architonic.com/en/project/martha-schwartz-partners-beiqijia-technology-business-district/5104876 Thu, 22 Jun 2017 00:00:00 +0200 A forward looking mixed-use development offers a high ratio of designed landscapes intended to promote a healthy urban lifestyle. A 60,000 sqm site included a demonstration zone with accompany-ing show garden. The benefit of a demonstration zone allowed a testing ground for materials and plants as well to fine tune the design and construction of bespoke furniture and structures. Located in the Changping district north of Beijing the project is defined by its contemporary architecture and a landscape that subdivides into a trio of differently characterized zones organ-ized around the requirements of three main programmatic areas: commercial/retail, office plus residential areas. A rectangular, shifting ground plane pattern of strips form an aesthetic tactic that is rigorously applied forging a unique and memorable identity for the entire site. This pattern permits variations and differ-entiation within the three main landscape zones.The strips of this motif are versatile. They become… continue

Mariehøj Cultural Centre by WE Architecture | Church architecture / community centres https://www.architonic.com/en/project/we-architecture-mariehj-cultural-centre/5104875 Thu, 22 Jun 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Mariehøj Cultural Centre draws a clear profile in the landscape. The new foyer invites all people of Rudersdahl Municipality in and functions as a heart that brings people together and highlights the many users and activities in the house. The cultural centre merges together with the green landscape bridging the gap between the arrival area, the cultural plaza and the beautiful backyard of Mariehøj. The building opens up towards the surroundings and incorporates the green qualities to the activities in the house. The house is both a cultural activity centre and a well-functioning working place. Through reorganization and rebuilding, better spaces for individual activities and appropriate position of the different functions are created. At the same time more meeting points are created, which bring the multiple activities in the house together and offer a space where new meetings and activities across interest and age arise. The new cultural centre is a single organism with a high aes… continue

Conservatory And Botanical Garden by Christian Dupraz Architects | Schools https://www.architonic.com/en/project/christian-dupraz-architects-conservatory-and-botanical-garden/5104874 Thu, 22 Jun 2017 00:00:00 +0200 The herbarium of the Botanical Garden is composed of a rare collection of historical specimens of great value along with one of the richest botanical libraries in the world. Articulated on the rhythm of an orthogonal frame every 300 cm, the load-bearing structures are composed of welded metal profiles assembled in a repetitive modular selection. The important presence of glass in the pillar frames in addition to the frames of the façades, not unlike greenhouses architecture, give the building a special architectural expression. This building enables an accurate study in the definition of prototypical principles in the realisation and renovation process. This important piece of work of Jean-Marc Lamunière (1925-2015) is to be understood as one of the only examples of Swiss modular and structuralist architecture, very popular at the time in Anglo-Saxon countries. The pivotal work in the architect's career, this construction was to to be completed only months before the 1973 oil cri… continue

It’s also curved in plan, and split in two, one side raised above the other. It’s an odd fish of a house. To understand the design, it’s necessary to know something of the main house. The site sits in the garden of the Boat House, an intriguing insertion of the second-class lounge salvaged from the SS Mauritania into a purpose-built modernist house built in 1936 by a Mr Cullen, a businessman and keen sailor. On my first visit to the Boat House, I loved the way the house offered multiple surprises and the way it connected to the sea. Ensconced within magnificent, tall ponderosa pines, it occupies a headland that drops down to Poole harbour. The whitewashed 1930s cube is perched on the edge of the hill, with railings and porthole windows; a bridge to the boat below. Entering at first floor - a glimpse of the sea - one looks from a circular gallery to the timber-panelled room below. There’s an array of bunk rooms of… continue

The development plan for the area has high demands on sustainability for construction materials, insulation, energy and air circulation. The Green House is the first of our typologies to be developed in the area and consists of a simple plan arrangement that allow for low construction costs while offering generous living spaces. The Green House, though slightly smaller in floor space, offers a large 32m2 winter garden on the south facing façade of the construction. All bedrooms and a bathroom are located on the northern, more intimate side of the building while the living/dining area opens up onto the greenhouse where a south-facing, mono-pitched roof ensures that a lot of light filters into the communal areas. The children's room is prepared for being separated by a wall later. A mezzanine over the kitchen makes the most of the high ceilings to create a cozy cinema room, ideal for cold winte… continue

Tenri Station Plaza CoFuFun by nendo | Sports facilities https://www.architonic.com/en/project/nendo-tenri-station-plaza-cofufun/5104870 Thu, 22 Jun 2017 00:00:00 +0200 The master plan for the station plaza at Tenri Station in Nara prefecture, located in the southwest region of Japan. The plan for the 6,000 square meter area includes bicycle rentals, a cafe and other shops, an information kiosk, a play area, outdoor stage, and meeting area. The project goal was to encourage local community revitalisation by providing a space for events, tourist information dissemination and leisure facilities for local residents. Tenri’s urban boundaries include a number of ancient Japanese tombs, known as “cofun”. The cofun are beautiful and unmistakeable, but blend into the spaces of everyday life in the city. The plaza’s landscape, richly punctuated by several of these cofun, is a representation of the area’s characteristic geography: the Nara Basin, surrounded on all sides by mountains. The construction technique used to create the plaza’s round cofun structures consisted of fitting together pieces of a precast concrete mould resembling a huge pizza. Becaus… continue

In Delikatesy Peretti (Peretti Deli), the elegant atmosphere of the new brand and passionate attitude of its owners are refected in the design of the place. Using the space of 90 m2 inside a historic tenement house in the district of Jeżyce, Poznań, the architects of the modelina studio designed a complex of delicatessen, café and space for sommelier workshops. Inspired by the atmosphere and aesthetics of ancient Italian architecture, the designers opted for its most traditional materials, grey stone and natural wood. The goods sold in the delicatessen play the most important role and are therefore visibly presented in high display cases, with an island in the centre reserved for seasonal products.

The program, funded by the American Red Cross and implemented by Global Communities, aims to construct multifunctional spaces that facilitate and promote social cohesion through an inclusive approach. Carrefour-Feuilles is one of the many informal neighbourhoods which suffered extensive damage in the 2010 earthquake. The houses clinging to the slopes of the ravine lack basic services such as electricity, running water and sanitation. There is little formal infrastructure and the cheek by jowl homes are only accessible by a network of narrow corridors that wind up the slope. It is among the tight corners and between the walls of neighbouring houses that social life usually takes place.

The purpose of the improvement is to upgrade the necessary infrastructure needed for modern life, thus turning this traditional courtyard, which mainly serve as a residence, into an attractive public space of Beijing Inner City. 1.Twist within regular layout. The design aims at getting rid of the solemn and stereotyped impression given by Siheyuan, and creating an open and active living atmosphere. Based on the existing layout of the courtyard, the undulated floor is used to connect indoor and outdoor spaces of different height. And it is extended to the inside of the house, twisting into walls and roof, thus creating dynamic connection between inside and outside space.

Since the ancient times, architectural design which is inspired by natural landscape has always been exciting. The Museum, facing the city in the south and backed by the mountain in the north, has no disturbance on surrounding vegetation. From afar, it looks like an off-white stone rolled down from the mountain, standing quietly and naturally in the open and vast Gobi desert of Inner Eurasia. Part of the Museum was designed as a guest house containing a private art gallery and the other is open to the public where passengers could have some rest.

Covering an area of 2000 m2, the Chocolarium opened in eastern Switzerland on 1 April 2017. Everything at the visitor centre revolves around the question: How does happiness get into chocolate? <b> A different approach </b> A lot of chocolate manufacturers in Switzerland have visitor centres and factory outlets. The majority present their factories as artisan workshops, where chocolate is brewed in copper cauldrons and crafted with wooden spoons. However, Maestrani is taking a new approach. The aim is an emotional experience with fun at its heart. This is realised in Maestrani’s Chocolarium, the Chocolate Factory of Happiness, which becomes its own brand, attracts more visitors to the site and equally represents Maestrani’s three chocolate brands: Minor, Munz and Maestrani.

The small size of the windows facing the street and the different heights of the rooms immediately suggested a reversal of the traditional functional layout with respect to the outside: the living room and kitchen have been placed towards the tree-lined courtyard (where local building regulations permit the enlargement of windows to make glass doors), while the bedrooms and bathrooms have been shifted towards the main facade, with the addition of a loft zone to create a st… continue

Building next to an urban void always poses exceptional challenges. The lot on the city block A11, free of adjacent buildings, faces urban arteries which also structure it, while also offering views of the railyard landscape, a river of rails and catenaries bestowing an obvious urban poetry upon the site, in which different strata of the city intermingle. Thus, city block A11 has no front or back façade but forms an entity offering passersby and passengers on trains a series of continuously changing points of view. The building has two main levels aligned with the Avenue de France, which house two commercial spaces, and a setback main section and finally an attic section placed above and slightly overhanging main section.

Nested in a cliff that borders the St. Lawrence River, the construction certainly represented a pioneering achievement at the time. For PARKA Architecture & Design, the challenge was to conceive a project that both met the many needs of the occupants while respecting the original architectural work, which is of modern inspiration. Despite its obvious architectural qualities, the rue de l'Anse house showed certain technical and aesthetic challenges. PARKA’s mandate thus stretched from the reorganization of a large part of the envelope to interior design. Among the customers’ needs and desires, it was essential to optimize the space and its relationship with the exterior. Hence, the exterior terrace, previously covered by a huge overhang, was transformed into a living space. The slopping roof was modified into a flat one, resulting in a full height space.

Located in the heart of downtown Toronto, this retail and office building is part of Toronto’s Heritage Conservation District (HCD), which protects the original character of the streetscape, including new construction heights, materials and details. Quadrangle’s brief was two-fold: to adhere to the HCD legislation, while also creating a building that would reflect the values of its client, Hullmark, a real estate developer that is committed to using thoughtful and bold architecture to elevate Toronto’s urban environment. Addressing these seemingly opposing requirements, Quadrangle found a solution in a simple, and straightforward curtain wall box, with retail at grade, two floors of offices above, and a rooftop patio — veiled by a paneled screen.

Much like human well-being, the essence of our work is found in balance— between richness and restraint, between order and complexity. Our vision is to look beyond sight. We want to create spaces that feel good in every way. The brief for the space was to create a collaborative space where friends and partners could come together to share ideas and showcase their work and an office space that had an informal, elegant and homey atmosphere. The space consists of 3 zones. The front end of the space facing the busy Amager Torv in Central Copenhagen with a full facade of big glass windows visually inviting the streets of Copenhagen inside.

Rapidly, the two clients who love music, nature and the land expressed their desire for a home with an open living area, where gastronomy and good dishes are prepared in direct relation to nature and the lake. At the heart of the space thus settle the three strong and unifying elements of the project: the kitchen, the dining table and the piano. Like Memphremagog`s landscape, the house is built with openness as a mindset, without physical boundaries. The starting point for the architecture is that of the immediate landscape; the scenic beauty of the surroundings.

FlaHalo Office Manufactory Renovation by Narration | Office facilities https://www.architonic.com/en/project/narration-flahalo-office-manufactory-renovation/5104850 Mon, 19 Jun 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Inherent as genre, symbol, element, is meaningless but drift apart people and the space. Thus, we logically concern about as usual the relationship between people and what they might sense in the space. To consider each scenes might happen inside is what we done to define the space which is more than a working space. We care about the stories trigger by people and it might be irrelevant to work, you might be a friend, a brother, a mate, a barista, a florist, a patissier or even a makeup artist. People are allowed to reach other sides of theirselves apart from work and make it one. The office is renovated from Nanxing Glass Manufactory, built in 1986 but the unreasonable length-width ration is not adaptable as a working space. Therefore constant corridors and entrances reform the space and the linkage brings up the only route, meanwhile contributes to reinforce spatial layers, which meant to effervesce unexpected pleasure when people exploring the space. Speaking of texture, we t… continue

Mountain House by studio razavi architecture | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/studio-razavi-architecture-mountain-house/5104848 Mon, 19 Jun 2017 00:00:00 +0200 In this highly preserved Alpine valley, stringent architectural guidelines allow for very little freedom of architectural expression. Everything from building height/width ratio to roof slope, via building material and window sizes are strictly controlled to enforce what is locally perceived as patrimony protection but de facto creating camp architecture, endlessly mimicking traditional mountain homes. In order to circumvent these limitations we took great care in analyzing historical buildings as to understand what their forms accomplished and how they shaped the local architectural culture. We then integrated this information into our design, simply avoiding all artifi cial and/or obsolete elements while making sure that the building was entirely code compliant. studio razavi architecture continue

The architecture of this building offers itself all around in a rhyming of urban and scenic citations and views. Architectural choices and interior design reinterpret the Arabic-Moorish style in a modern key. The stone façade recalls the colours of the desert, while the red of the domes reflects the shades of the interior. The hotel, a 5 stars international category, offers 160 standard rooms, 10 executive suites, 10 senior suites and a presidential suite located within four consecutive blocks that adapt to the underlying ground, connected in between through vertical elements that contain stairs and elevators. The guests are welcomed by a great lobby on more levels that ends with a finely chalk-plated dome from which a sumptuous chandelier goes down.

House in Minami-tanabe by FujiwaraMuro Architects | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/fujiwaramuro-architects-house-in-minami-tanabe/5104846 Mon, 19 Jun 2017 00:00:00 +0200 The existing row house on this long, narrow property measuring 3.75 m across and 16.92 m deep was torn down to make way for a new residence. The design adapts to the distinctive site by playing up deep lines of sight. Segmented split-level floors overlap with one basement and three above-ground floors, providing visual outlets in a number of directions. The basement contains a multi-purpose space, the first floor an entryway, the second floor a combined living-dining-kitchen area and desk space, the third floor bedrooms and bathrooms, and above that there is a rooftop area. Scattered staircases connecting the split-level floors create multiple up-down circulation routes, giving form to an image of wandering through the house rather than moving monotonously within it. The nature of the site is ill-suited to gazing at exterior views, so we approached the interior as a landscape of its own. Residents are able to stand or sit at various spots inside the house and enjoy this interior l… continue

The V shaped capsules on the facade derives the attention. Being curious about the outlook of the building, we were lucky as architects to get the chance to do the interior of the apartment. Considering the location and the view that the building has, the apartment floor is predominant to the vista of Istanbul the first intervention that was thought of was having the facade as transparent as possible. The biggest problematic that took attention was that the house was very dark and had a pretty much closed entrance fallowed by a corridor that was not straight but more like a maze. The living room of the house and the kitchen were separated by a wall, and the entrance was pretty much detached. The implements we have made to the house interior was to almost re-built the interior regarding the customs of the owner but respecting the actual architectural elements of the building.

However, the spaces, proportions and finishes did not reflect the value of the property. Arched architectural features and thick walls made the shell look heavy. The spaces were sliced up into rooms with no visual or practical link between the different parts of the house. Spaces need to coexist and a link needs to be incorporated between them and the exterior. The shell of the house has been outfitted with large slabs of honed limestone and white plaster walls with warm teak accents. All openings were recycled creating oversized glass partitions to open up the house to a view of the swimming pool and garden which is positioned and proportioned in harmony with the building geometry. Our design intent was to create a weightless environment that gives room for the modern time family to relax, think and enjoy.

Um die Institutionen der Europäischen Union wächst ein neues Stadtquartier mit Büro- und Verwaltungsgebäuden, kulturellen Einrichtungen und Geschäften heran. Das renommierte Architekturbüro Sauerbruch Hutton konnte 2011 den Wettbewerb für das neue Headquarter der international agierenden Wirtschaftsprüfergesellschaft Ernst & Young für sich entscheiden.

The building is situated in the open forest immeditely adjoining the lake and the bath bridge. The idea is of course to enable quick cooling-down swims after the heat of the sauna. The sauna is – although small – a building in its own right; a piece of architecture. The geometry is a rectangular box with walls and roof at angles inside. Creating a simple – yet intricate spatiality. The simple functions are: Sauna room with glass wall toward the lake Small closed dressing room Shower under the stars (inside the walls but without roof) Sun deck to drip-dry The basic construction is wood clad on wood frame, on a plinth foundation. Electricity for simple lighting and for the heater. Running water (cold) for the showers. Claesson Koivisto Rune continue

Parquet Patterned Pool and Spa by Claesson Koivisto Rune | Open-air pools https://www.architonic.com/en/project/claesson-koivisto-rune-parquet-patterned-pool-and-spa/5104839 Thu, 15 Jun 2017 00:00:00 +0200 A spa with two pools has been completed adjacent to a 1796 mansion in south Sweden. The spa has one indoor pool for wintertime and one outdoor for summer. The outdoor pool sits on a podium, which levels the slope on which the mansion sits. It thus creates a platform from which you have an elevated view over the estate towards the back. Yet, it sits discrete as seen from the approach to the main entrance. The indoor pool is hidden inside the podium so that one pool could be said to sit on top of the other. The two spa areas are each other’s mirrors. The outside is protruding while the inside is hollowed out. But both share the same patterned concept. Lending inspiration from the Gustavian (Neoclassical) mansion in general and parquet floor patterns from the time in particular, the concept is built on the chevron (French parquet). Wood decking and custom precision laser cut tiles share the same chevron pattern in different scales. Two archetypically house-shaped structures stand, e… continue

The project is jointly funded by German hospital operators and Chinese partners and, with its special medical and architectural standards, addresses the more deman-ding standards within the Chinese health market. The establishment, which focuses on neurology and orthopedics, is located three kilometers outside the pic-turesque museum city of Wuzhen, one of the most favored tourist attractions in the country, in a landscape featuring many rivers and canals.

We designed their first fixed location – Balboa Bar & Gym - in the banking district of Zurich. The design is based on functionality, authenticity, collectivity and openness. The goal was not only to create a new place-to-be, but further to challenge common perception of what “fitness” is about and to open up the Balboa community to grow beyond gym-goers. People and interaction are in the center of the concept. The concept mixes two uses that normally would not be considered a “match”. The ground floor works as a regular, fully-fledged bar and the gym is located downstairs. This unorthodox mix is celebrated in the architecture. Generous roughly cut openings allow for visual connections between the two floors and their partly differing clientele – and also bring natural light in to the basement. The connecting effect is amplified by lighting. Further ample uncovered windows connect the bar to the outer world.… continue

The new gym is located in a former industrial district in Zurich-West below and between the massive stone arches of a still functioning, railway bridge built in 1894. Just like Balboa itself the design of 'Balboa im Viadukt' is based on urbanity, functionality and authenticity. Our goal was to make the gym an urban experience not only in terms of look-and-feel, but also by connecting it with its surroundings. The surroundings, people inside and outside and interactions between them are in the center of the concept.

The development plan for the area has high demands on sustainability for construction materials, insulation, energy and air circulation. THE LIGHT HOUSE is the second of our typologies to be developed in the area and consists of a simple plan arrangement that allow for low construction costs while offering generous living spaces. This three bedroom house offers a large central living/dining area which is flanked by two bedrooms on one side and one bathroom and master bedroom on the other. A mono-pitched roof creates high ceilings in the communal area while also allowing for an extra guest bedroom and living room to fit comfortably on the second floor in a mezzanine-like arrangement. The various sizes of windows are carefully positioned to frame a view of the surrounding landscape or capture a ray of sunlight at a specific time of the day.

By creating an unified, rhythmically alternating façade with native larch tree trunks noa* connects "old and new" in a consistent manner.

The project involved both the communal areas, like the entrance hall and the vertical access, and the residential interiors, of which this is the first completed apartment. Prior to the project the building was completely without decorative-architectural features appropriate to its character. The design work thus began with a reinterpretation of the "inside/outside" relationship, starting with the vertical circulation, where the graphic design of the new paneling surrounding the staircase alludes to the image of the exterior facades, while the “inhabited” landing foreshadows the intimacy of the apartments. The project for this apartment develops through diaphragm-dividers with structures in pai… continue

Being one of the largest hospitals in Europe and one of the most technologically advanced medical centres in the world, the project meets all optimal criteria for flexibility and modularity, aimed at a state-of-the-art building of its characteristics. This is demonstrated by the fact that this hospital is the first to receive a BREEAM certification, and furthermore, it will be used as the benchmark case for all future BREEAM Hospitals. One of the key issues was a careful study of the building’s integration into its surroundings; its shear volume and overwhelming scale took us to fragment the building brief into 3 distinct areas; outpatient, technical area and inpatient, all articulated through a central spine, a true horizontal and vertical circulation artery, providing intuitive wayfinding and natural distress to patients.

This house with a Renaissance core stands right at the foot of the chateau hill, in the former Jewish quarter of Mikulov (a. k. a. Nikolsburg). Throughout its existence it has suffered a great many scars, it has gone through tens of reconstructions and operations. All of these have altered the house beyond recognition. Yet it has maintained its almost medieval picturesqueness. We came to a "pudding stone". The more individual layers, spaces and surprising circumstances we uncovered, the more revisions and alterations our project we had to make in our project; and this lasted, in fact, until the end of realisation. In the beginning we did not have a clue where we would come to in the end. We were looking for a limit what time we could come back to and for a point when we should rather go on a new journey. But we still wanted to preserve the house as an organic unit. You will not find a straight wall or a re… continue

Composed of two new floors, the new building is designed as a transplant onto the existing one. It is connected by two bridges to the infrastructure already in place: two umbilical cords that allow for logistics flows and transport of patients and staff. The new facades are treated in the same vein as those of the original building: an alternation of glass and mineral-filled bands. However, the facades take on their own formal autonomy: the corners are rounded, the glass bands expanded, the mineral bands polished, and the roof is pierced to allow natural light into the heart of the new organism. The interiors are designed in a way that humanises the ‘treatment machine’ character of a hospital environment, while at the same time respecting the technical and normative constrain… continue

The so-called ‘Mudéjar style’ consists of constructive and decorative Middle Eastern forms combined with (for that time) contemporary Spanish building materials such as brick, iron and plaster. The 17 ‘wallpaper groups’, characterized by repeating two-dimensional patterns, are a distinctive element of the ‘Mudéjar style’ and can all be found at the famous Alhambra Palace in Granada.

 The room divider takes its form especially from an interpretation of the window grates of the ‘Mudéjar style’. Siba based her design on one triangular element that can be fixed in different directions in the aluminium frame of the partition screen. The 172 lightweight triangular elements are formed from a mix of resin and chalk and have the appearance of concrete. The design as a whole, its functional, material, and structural elements, translates cultural heritage into a contemporary interior item… continue

Bougainvillea Row House by Luigi Rosselli Architects | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/luigi-rosselli-architects-bougainvillea-row-house/5104824 Tue, 13 Jun 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Sydney’s planners are considering the return of the terraced house, or row house, as a favoured residential building type. It is believed the terrace could be one solution to addressing housing affordability; by allowing the subdivision of standard quarter acre blocks of land into narrow strips and building adjoining two-three storey dwellings. This Woollahra terrace demonstrates that, even on a small site, you can fit a home with three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a guest flat, a garage, and an open-plan living, dining, kitchen suite, without missing out on a study, dressing room, laundry, balcony, lightwells and two wonderful courtyards. Economy of space forced the architects to think clever, and employ efficient solutions to home planning. The Adolf Loos concept of “Raumplan” was the inspiration, with the interlocking of each room, Tetris style, within the strict wall boundaries and council restrictions. Split levels between the front and the back help the adaptation to t… continue

Esperanto by PARKA | Living space https://www.architonic.com/en/project/parka-esperanto/5104822 Tue, 13 Jun 2017 00:00:00 +0200 The Rue de l’Espéranto residence is a renovation project located in the borough of Sainte-Foy in Québec city, Canada. Originally built in the end of the 1960s, the house, which definitely possesses many architectural qualities, needed an update to meet today’s lifestyle as well as the owner’s needs. Designed by PARKA Architecture & Design and Guillaume Sasseville, designer and owner of SSSVLL Studio in Montréal, the project consisted in the reorganization of the common areas and the optimization of the traffic areas while preserving the unique architectural characteristics of the home as well as the beautiful original materials. The layout of the common areas was modified in order to obtain a space that would be more open and that would allow the occupants to take full advantage of the surrounding nature and natural light. This was reflected in the enlargement of the fenestration as well as the demolition of the wall that separated the dining room from the kitchen. The latter,… continue

The Sea Library by Etat Arkitekter Ab | Office facilities https://www.architonic.com/en/project/etat-arkitekter-ab-the-sea-library/5104821 Tue, 13 Jun 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Etat Arkitekter Ab (ETAT Architects) was commissioned by Art Setouchi to design a library located on Awashima island in the Seto Inland Sea, Japan. The new library is housed in an existing heritage-classified building from the 1920’s located on the port’s sea front. ETAT’s refurbishment is designed to highlight the material and spatial qualities of the existing wooden building and to enhance it’s relationship to the sea. For new additions the predominant material is brass, which is used as wall surface, for fittings and for the 3,6 x 3,6 meters reading table. The library was conceived as a regional development project in order to revitalise Awashima and the project was part of the art and architecture triennale Setouchi International Triennale 2013. Etat Arkitekter Ab: Erik Törnkvist, Architect SAR/MSA MA Arch. and Malin Belfrage, Architect SAR/MSA MA Arch. continue

What emerged is an integrally designed penthouse with some exciting highlights and likeable details. The striking wall paper at the sink row contrasts with the black and white kitchen whose cabinet unit "round the corner" becomes the wardrobe. Behind the open dressing room hides the parents' bedroom with the incorporated chief bathroom and the unexpectedly designed WC. The nursery is a special realm for playing and sleeping.

Mynt by Dear Design | Shop interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/dear-design-mynt/5104819 Mon, 12 Jun 2017 00:00:00 +0200 The premise for the design was to create an iconic space that reflected the fresh and cosmopolitan spirit of the brand, following the thread of the first store, with a concept adaptable to any property and versatile when exposing the product. It should also be a design that could be quickly built and with a moderate cost. To reach this goal, DearDesign has designed a dazzling and open store, with a structure that, despite its rigid and orthogonal look, solves flexible of the product display. The design of the store is based on a three-dimensional grid inspired by the Fibonacci sequence, which creates a variable rhythm in a permeable volume, ordering the space by generating niches to exhibit the product along with its perimeter. The structure is entirely solved by the use of a single element, which is chosen for its constructive possibilities, as well as for its lightness and affordable cost. Bare plasterboard structure profiles are used for a new purpose. By being fit, folded a… continue

Inverdon House by Chloe Naughton | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/chloe-naughton-inverdon-house/5104818 Mon, 12 Jun 2017 00:00:00 +0200 A house for a soon-to-be-retired couple, Inverdon House certainly challenges ‘the norm’ in the small regional town where it is located. This is largely for its use of the hard-wearing, low-maintenance material of masonry which would otherwise typically be hidden in paint, plasterboard and render. Instead, the material has been left exposed, revealing the structure in such a way that means the craftsmanship is on show for all to see and so must be made with care, pride and a certain level of expertise. This means that a new skill is passed on to younger trades people and if the demand for quality is there, this skill-set will continue. The current local housing model mostly ignores passive design principles, closing down to the elements rather than working with the climate. Only the two bedrooms are air-conditioned for especially humid nights. Manoeuvrable awnings sit above each internal door to allow breezes through rooms when the doors are closed. The living space opens up com… continue

With a total area of ​​220,000 m2, it can entertain also simultaneously conferences and congresses, banquets, expositions, events and activities of various types at international level. The flexibility of the spaces was the key theme during the overall design development: the whole building was in fact conceived to be used in a flexibility and amendable way in every moment and to be able to respond to the exigence of different range of uses. The different areas can also be partitioning and made them independent from one to another both in horizontal that in vertical. Inside it is located: The principal auditorium with 6.000 places. It is the symbol and central element of the CIC. The hall offers a high level of functionality, with acoustic characteristics and technological features that mean it can respond to a range of dif… continue

Brick House in Brick Garden by Jan Proksa | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/jan-proksa-brick-house-in-brick-garden/5104815 Mon, 12 Jun 2017 00:00:00 +0200 Traditional villages in the Southern Moravia region of the Czech Republic are characterized by their distinctive urban planning. The streets are lined with L-shaped row houses neighbouring each other on narrow rectangular plots, each with its own long and narrow backyard. A single multi-generational family home typically consists of three parts: the street-facing house inhabited by parents with their children, a home for the grandparents bordering on a courtyard, and the remaining lot to the rear of the property which was traditionally used for small-scale farming. In general, the front-facing houses are more spacious and feature more elaborate construction techniques. The façade, for example, the house's public presentation to the neighbourhood, is plastered and coloured in light natural tones. The rear buildings, however, typically remain unplastered, as such a solution was an unnecessary expense. The use of exposed brick architecture for the rear buildings was a simple, durable,… continue

It is a luxurious project for an Emarati client situated within a few kilometers from the infamous Burj Al Arab in Dubai. The client’s admiration for art, has inspired us to design the house as a gallery space with long corridors that provide a white canvas for display of art and sculpture. There is an understated sophistication to the house that is manifested in the refined interior architectural details, the materials used and the seamless fittings. Our design intent was to create a weightless environment that is modern, functional and dynamic.

Coupling the corporate feel of the plaza with natural use of materials and greenery The Business Year media office offers a cozy, creative environment. Considering the employees have just moved in to a plaza from a villa with a garden, the designers plan was to benefit from the sunshine and the view as much as possible yet creating user friendly workspaces that allow high concentration of the creative teams. As a media press office, the main team of the office are designers and editors. Both of the teams have to have interaction with each other yet maintaining the spatial necessities of seclusion. The planning allows these main groups of profession to interact in common lounge areas and meeting points in public spaces of the office. All of the workstations are located around the façade, leaving minimum circulation that allows interaction of different teams. The… continue

They slip past one another, opening spaces for courtyards, cooking and fire. The clients wanted a working house, not just a place they would go to sleep in. So the buildings had to have that functionality, but as a place it also had to be exciting. The clients came to us to be surprised and to have something from a design point of view they didn’t quite understand. The client had been collecting vintage timber for years, stockpiling from different parts of New Zealand – large beams, pallets of native timbers – and he had a massive supply of totara. We thought we could build him a house that carefully curates his extensive timber collection. So there’s a patchwork of these different timbers and we sought to bring them all together tonally so that the end product was beautiful aesthetically. While timber can be used to create solidity, warmth and mass, it can also be incredibly fine. We enjoyed… continue

Inspired by the blueprint for a new type of care set out by Maggie Keswick Jencks, they place great value upon the power of architecture to lift the spirits and help in the process of therapy. The design of the Manchester centre aims to establish a domestic atmosphere in a garden setting and, appropriately, is first glimpsed at the end of a tree-lined street, a short walk from The Christie Hospital and its leading oncology unit. The building occupies a sunny site and is arranged over a single storey, keeping its profile low and reflecting the residential scale of the surrounding streets. The roof rises in the centre to create a mezzanine level, naturally illuminated by triangular roof lights and it is supported by lightweight timber lattice beams.

Indirect light has a beautiful cold blue color that reminds you of the proximity to the ocean. The low sun from south adds a warmer yellow light to the spectrum. The Roof House is designed to catch both indirect and direct sunlight at the same time and turn in into an ever-changing experience when walking through the sequence of rooms. A perforated wall circumferes the house and creates different grades of privacy and windless outdoor spaces. The house is crowned by a roof of sloped surfaces towards all four corners of the world. From an open court the entrance is located right at the heart of the house. From here the high ceilings open up to a spacious living room. Below one roof a wing for the parents located with access to a South Western court. The kitchen is directly connected to a South East court offering morning sun.
