From the architect. This project is situated in a glaciated, coastal landscape, with a cool maritime climate. The geomorphology of the site consists of granite bedrock and boulder till, creating pristine white sand beaches, and turquoise waters. The two pavilions float above the shoreline like two ship’s hulls up on cradles for the winter, forming protected outdoor places both between and under them. This is a landscape-viewing instrument; like a pair of binoculars, first looking out to sea. A third transverse ‘eye’ looks down the coastline, and forms a linking entry piece.

A concrete seawall on the foreshore protects the house from rogue waves. This is a full-time home for a family of four; consisting of a ‘day pavilion’ and a ‘night pavilion’. One approaches from the understated land side between the abstract, library ends of the two pavilions; then either passes through toward the sea, or left into the living pavilion, or right into the sleeping pavilion. One structure contains a central core, while the other contains a side core. The seaward ends of the two main forms (living and master bedroom) delaminate, creating protected outdoor porches, or night time ‘lanterns’ over the water. The third linking form contains the generous entry foyer, core, and the kitchen. The great room contains a floating 24′ totemic hearth. The house remains a fertile research vehicle in the education of an architect.

This is a steel frame house, with a wood skin. Its white, steel endoskeleton resists both gravity loads and wind uplift. The 32′ cantilevers and concrete fin foundations invite the sea to pass under without damage. The wooden rain screen consists of 8″ vertical, board-on-batten on the two ‘hulls’, while the linking piece is a monolithic block of weathered wood inside and out, clad in 4″ horizontal shiplap. The lantern ends dematerialise by eliminating the 1″ channel joints. The fenestration of the ‘binocular’ ends is minimalist curtain wall with structural silicone. The side elevations contain storefront glazing. The concrete floors contain a geothermally heated hydronic system. This sculptural, yet calm and mature project contains generous white volumes on the interior, and exhibits the ironic monumentality of boats on the exterior.

Otopark ‘de Cope’


Garaj Utrecht Papendorp at ‘de Cope’ bir park konaklama birimi olarak gri ve negatif kütle olmasına artık gereksinim duymadığınız bir mimari anlayışın ispatı gibidir. Çünkü bu sade tasarım ile şeffaf bir otopark yapısı, bu garajı gerçekten çevresine bir katma değer sunan olumlu bir deneyim olmasına yol açmaktadır.

Kamusal alanda sanayi sitesi (ve ofis kompleksi) Papendorp henüz tanık olmadığımız bir çözümü yaygın otoparklar için getirmektedir. Geçici otopark çözümleri çok da geçerli olmadığına göre bu alternatif önem kazanmaktadır.

Bu gelişme bağlamında, Kroon Grubu ve JHK Architecten 500 oto için park yerlerini toplam ofis alanının 3x1000m2 tutarındaki alan kullanımıyla Papendorp Zuid için bir ofis / işyeri ile birlikte kompakt bir yapı olacak şekilde garaj binası gerçekleşmiştir. Park alanlarının çoğunluğunun komşu ofisler tarafından da kullanılmak üzere tasarlanmış olmasını belirtelim. Diğer bir deyişle bu otopark sadece kendi işyerinin ihtiyaçları için değil, sokağın otoparkıdır.

Tasarım bir bağlantı yolu (Crossway) vasıtasıyla birleştirilen iki soyut birimden oluşur. İki spiral bina içinde çeşitli otopark katlarına açılım verir. Otopark binasını üst üç katında üç ofis katı fonksiyonları mevcuttur. Ofislere giriş zemin seviyesinde bir giriş salonundan yapılmaktadır.

Garaj içinde sürücüler ve yayalar için hem en uygun yerleşim ve güzergahlar planlanmıştır. Tasarımı oldukça basittir ve garaj içinde bir noktaya çıkmak için özel ve fazladan bir zaman harcanmaz.

Binanın cephesinde bulunan bar, korkuluk ve sütun sistemleri onun tipik inşaat ile aynı anlayışta olduğunun bir kanıtıdır. Eski garaj yapma anlayışının dışında olmak üzere tasarımı, başlangıçta planlandığı ofis ünitesi ile rekabet edebilmekte ve gerektiği gibi kentsel planlama açısından anlam taşımaktadır.

Otopark katları olan ve yine katlı ofis bulunan blok, çeperinde özel cepheler oluşturarak, görsel olarak farklı işlevler arasında ayrım olmadan ifadelenir. Cephede kullanılan alüminyum yüzey kaplama, altın metalik görünümlü içe doğru kavisli, perfore ‘Platibond kompozit paneller’ den oluşur. Paneller özel cephe tedarikçisinden bu proje için özel olarak geliştirilmiştir. Delikler içinde kademeli olarak değişiklikler ve zıplamalar; panellerin bir doku hissi taşımasına olanak verir. Delikler otopark için aynı zamanda doğal havalandırmayı temin eder. Panellerin yapımıyla cephe eğrileri cephe boyunca eşit dağılım sağlamış olur. Form, renk ve detay binanın değişik hava ve ışık koşullarına bağlı olarak farklı bir görünüm arzetmesine sebep olur. Bu da birçok ofis ve endüstriyel binalar arasında, garaj binasının bu şekildeki tasarımıyla hoş bir farklılığının olmasına yol açar.

Lovely Boutique Hotel in Sicily, With a Powerful Design Personality


 

 

The charming Monaci delle Terre Nere boutique hotel has a unique personality and an interior design that captivates and inspires. Located on the island of Sicily, the stunning looking villa (once inhabited by monks ) takes in the healthy countryside air of a region famous for its wineries. The current owner of the place purchased the small property a few years ago and decided to invest in its potential. Guido Alessandro explains: “I felt the place was too big for myself and I had many friends coming and going. So I thought I may as well open it up to people. It gives me joy to have people stay here and enjoy the place. We had an architect who helped us with the the interior design. But the idea behind it comes from my girlfriend and myself. I decorated the house with different things I have collected over the years, especially paintings from the British-Brazilian artist, Olivier Mourao.” Lovely inside and out, the villa features natural construction materials, making it blend perfectly in its impressive 40-acre organic farm surroundings. Find its design as soothing as we do?

Screens surround a dressing area on one side of the large bedroom, while the gabled rear wall is covered with shelving.

The bathroom is organised to create privacy, with a sink exposed to the bedroom, a bath that faces only the dressing area and a toilet that is completely concealed.

Viyana’ya tepeden bakmak


Viyana için Infobox: Çoklu İzlenimi Platformları / KARAMBA3D ve Bollinger-Grohmann-Schneider

Infobox, bir spekülatif yarışma projesidir. Yarışmanın amacı Viyana’da, “Tarihi Kent” dokusu içinde, bir enformasyon merkezi gerçekleştirmektir.



KARAMBA3D and Bollinger-Grohmann-Schneider mühendisler, mevcut arazinin zorlukları ile yarışarak bir proje ortaya çıkartmaya çalıştılar. Arazi, mevcut “borular”, yeraltı kanalizasyon sistemi, bir otopark, bir otobüs terminalinin göz önüne alınmasını gerektirmekteydi.

Komples ve planlanmamış tüm bu altyapılar yeni projenin taşıyıcı sisteminin düzenli olmasına ve herhangibir noktada yoğunlaşmasına olanak vermiyordu. Bunun yerine, parametrik modelleme yoluyla ve yapısal bağlantı noktalarıyla bir sistem kurulmasını gerektirmekteydi. Böylelikle mevcut sitenin zorluklarıyla baş etmek ve istenilen işlevsel kurguyu karşılayabilecek bir yapının ortaya çıkması mümkün olabilecekti.



InfoBox, 21 metre yüksekliğinde ince,sütunları olan bir kare kaide üzerinde konumlandırılmış.Yapısal olarak, Infobox, aslında bu sütunlar tarafından desteklenen bir yapısal çelikten oluşan bir ağ içinde kurgulanmakta. Yanal gerilme etkisindeki sistem kullanımı, sağlam bir taşıyıcı yapı sunmakta. Sağlamlaştırma ve parametrik türevli yapısal kurgusu fonksiyonların merkez servis alanı etrafında yer alan bir açık hacim olarak tanımlanabilmesine olanak sağlamakta.

Narrow House


Narrow House

Innovative house designed by Jakub Szczesny will be constructed in the narrow space between two buildings in Warsaw, Poland.

 

The world’s narrowest house (72 – 133 cm) will have compact kitchen, small bathroom, modern workstation, and comfortable bedroom.

Steel frame is already assembled, the rest of the narrow house will be completed by the end of 2012.

Narrowest house in W12

 

Conjure up the image of a 24ft kitchen with Aga. Then try to picture the width of the room; just 5ft 6in.

There’s nothing ordinary about 110 Goldhawk Road, the narrowest house in the borough, and the second slimmest in the capital.

It’s currently seeking a new owner, and would clearly suit a beanpole who doesn’t mind stairs and doesn’t suffer from claustrophobia.

“Actually we haven’t heard a bad word spoken about it,” said Simon Beatson, sales broker for Faron Sutaria, which is selling the two-bedroom home for a princely £549,950.

“It’s the sort of place people fall in love with, and although the floorplan is hilarious it does get people in to look at it.”

Built in the 1870s in a gap next to a grocer’s shop, the house has two reception rooms on the ground floor, the long, thin kitchen and dining area on the lower ground, and two bedrooms, a study and two bathrooms on the upper floors.

The top floor has the master bedroom, one end of which is taken up with a giant built-in bed. There’s no hope of shuffling down either side, however.

You can only get into bed from the end. The home of actors, artists and poets in the past, the new owner will be following in the narrow footsteps of German-born fashion photographer Juergen Teller, the snapper credited with creating the gritty realism look of the 1990s.

But wouldn’t living in a house where you can touch both walls drive you mad? “The thing is, it’s a long house,” said Simon. “If it wasn’t so long, it might feel more constricting.”

Putting a value on a house with just over 1,000 sq ft isn’t simple, but h&f news research reveals it last sold in 2006 for £488,500 – so the current asking price is bucking the trend in the recession.

“Parts of it are a bit awkward,” conceded Simon. “But for Goldhawk Road it’s remarkably quiet inside, and has got heaps of character.”

With most rooms 6ft in width, the house is positively spacious compared to the narrowest house in Britain – a tiny home in Millport on the island of Great Cumbrae of the North Ayrshire coast which is just
3ft 11in wide.

And 110 Goldhawk Road does open up a bit towards the back. The dining room is a mighty 10ft wide, and the garden is 13ft 6in at its widest point.
