Blue Ridge Community Church Renovation

The stage design team of Blue Ridge Community Church in Forest, VA is always looking for new ideas, particularly materials that work well with light. A group of volunteers with a flair for construction, they create innovative stage backdrops every 6-12 months under the leadership of Andrew Hunt, Elder and Technical Arts Pastor. One of the most successful was a luminous wall made of a translucent thermoformed ceiling panels. When one of the team members discovered Ceilume’s Transluminous panels online, an idea began to form: What if we hung translucent ceiling panels vertically, to form a wall lit from behind?   They found black T-bar ceiling suspension grid at a local supplier, and hung lengths of it vertically. The lightweight... Altro

Taishanyou Visitor Center

"Located on the east wing of Mount Tai, Taishanyou echoes the 'Cloud of Hometown' on the west wing. The visitor center is one of the important spatial nodes, and the terrain is low. I hope the building can face the continuous extension of Mount Tai in a circling way, so that it is not only a place to look at Mount Tai, but also a scene integrated with Mount Tai."—— Fanhao Meng Caption Taishanyou International Ecotourism Resort is another practice of line+ going deep into the hinterland of Mount Tai after the project of Jiunvfeng • Cloud of Hometown. The visitor center is located at the south end of the resort, connected with the main entrance. With a wide vision and surrounded by mountains and rivers, you can see the... Altro

The concept of Mirador House arises from the idea of a house that floats at the level of the top of the surrounding trees. The two main volumes, as well as the catwalk that connects them, fly over the lot creating large covered patios. The original topography of the land has been preserved to the full and the house barely touches the ground. Caption Caption Under the residence there is a rough concrete ramp path that smoothly changes direction. Surrounded by greenery, it overcomes the difference in level of more than a 100 feet between the sidewalk and the end of the batch. This rout leads first to the atrium, a large space under the social area which unveils an incredible view, and from there it is possible to access the house o... Altro

House K is one of our projects that had waited the longest for its construction. We started working on it in 2012, yet the house has just been finished in 2021.  Piotr Krajewski In the meantime, the project and the construction have encountered some adventures. The original concept assumed that the building would be part of a larger complex, which was intended to be a multigenerational family residence. Later the client has decided to move her house to another, much more attractive location. When we started working on the necessary adjustments to the project, the site had a virgin appearance, partly overgrown with a forest, gently sloping into the valley of a nearby river. When the house was finally completed, the neighborhood be... Altro

An urban residence with an austere appearance, it dialogues with its densely built-up surroundings in a rough and selective way. Situated on a corner lot, it is on two levels organised around a central patio facing south, which brings natural light into all the main relational spaces. Alessandra Bello Fotografa It could be described as a house with two souls. Villa MM only shows its true kaleidoscopic essence once the visitor has crossed the solid sandblasted concrete curtain wall that forms its base. This opens up externally at the large telescope along the north front, giving a glimpse of the interior spaces. Alessandra Bello Fotografa It is surmounted by a monolithic volume of walnut travertine surgically sectioned with flar... Altro

FSF – Sports And Leisure Center

20 years after their village center project, AllesWirdGut now completed another gem of communal architecture in the village of Fließ in Tyrol. Within walking distance from the school and the village center, a mountain arena was built for the local soccer club, which includes a tournament and a training pitch, a grandstand, swimming pool, track-and-field, tennis, and trend sports facilities as well as an identity-establishing landmark clubhouse. (c) AllesWirdGut/ tschinkersten fotografie, 2021 The topography and the shape of the site called for sensitive interventions and a sparing use of existing developable areas. Suspended horizontal planes — the leitmotif of the design — were placed on and above and off the edges... Altro
