Cortes Island Residence

The clients were looking for a house that would eventually become their fulltime residence but could also serve as a getaway, vacation and gathering place in the interim. Steve Keating Photography Located at the south end of Desolation Sound on Cortes Island, British Columbia, the site is formed of natural granite bedrock and contains a dramatic peninsula and cliff which serve as a windbreak for Cortes Bay as well as the Seattle and Vancouver yacht clubs. To the south, the house is exposed to the Straight of Georgia which delivers extremely high wind speeds and salt spray during winter storms. To withstand the high winds, the house structure is embedded into the bedrock with steel columns and exposed wood floor beams allowing the hous... Mais

Capitol Hill Residence

With a compact form and several integrated sustainable systems, the Capitol Hill Residence achieves the client’s goals to maximize the site’s views and resources while responding to its micro climate. Some of the sustainable systems are architectural in nature. For example, the roof rainwater collects into a steel entry water feature, day light from a typical overcast Seattle sky penetrates deep into the house through a central translucent slot, and exterior mounted mechanical shades prevent excessive heat gain without sacrificing the view. Hidden systems affect the energy consumption of the house such as the buried geothermal wells and heat pumps that aid in both heating and cooling, and a 30 panel photovoltaic system mounted o...

Selected in a private-sector competition, the project involved the renovation, extension and construction of the new façade for the historical hotel building, along with three new chalets, conceived as a single large-scale ensemble in the midst of the countryside.

Atelier ST reinterprets Göttingen’s typical geometries into a modern form for the new Kunsthaus

Atelier ST aimed to embed the new building naturally into its historical setting and yet create a clearly recognizable house of arts. The monolithic facade, with only a few shimmering metallic openings, marks a contemporary venue. © Simone Bossi The architects used an all but forgotten technique - combed modeling plaster. The facade was carefully combed on each level to create irregular grooves in the soft mineral plaster. Each level has a slight cantilever to maximize floor space and resonate with the adjoining historical buildings. © Simone Bossi In spite of the cramped site, a column-free reinforced concrete structure resulted in a surprisingly spacious interior. Only a few windows offer views of the surroundings. R... Mais

House in the vineyards

The unique site of the house on a steep slope on the outskirts of Vienna captivates with a fantastic panoramic view over vineyards and local mountains to the Danube.

MAD Architects shapes seaside library like eroded stone

MAD Architects used what they call an "anti-material" approach to avoid expression of the structure. The fair-faced concrete of the sculptural library pavilion is interpreted by the architects as a liquid material to emphasize its flowing spatial experience.

Alternative Layout Designs in Standard Housing Second Prize in the Open International Competition Alternative Layout Designs in Standard Housing In our cities, there has traditionally been a clear and significant distinction between what was public and what was private. This difference used to define the urban and the domestic realm. In a conventional model of the city, urbanity has usually meant public and domesticity has generally meant private. However, nowadays, in a historical period characterized by social transformations, continuous technological improvements and political uncertainties, our contemporary cities are much more complex. Our societies are evolving in a way where the traditional concepts of urban and domestic are becom... Mais
