Ecologic Pavilion In Alsace / Studio 1984

In search of the architecture of the lesser impact, the "nest" is largely inspired by agricultural vernacular constructions. Its familiar shape and texture pay homage to traditional barns and are an attempt at restoring their discreet charm. This pastoral imagination dictates the choice of local materials widely available such as straw and wood, the environmental impact of which are virtually nil.

The reference to rural heritage far from generating an archaic habitat is the support for technical innovations in terms of comfort, ambiance, and energetic efficiency. The landscape integration’s effort logically leads to reinterpret several vernacular proven techniques. The "nest" is also a reflection on the transiency of constructions. Ambitions carried by the Archi <20 competition resonate with the most significant contemporary issues in terms of building.

Top-floor apartment with an attic. Our task was to turn an uninhabitable attic into a comfortable and bright loft. Tree House / Robert Potokar and Janez Brežnik.

The concept, originally designed in February 2008 as since been realized three times. More on this project after the break. The freestanding, self-supporting house-by-a-tree is a playhouse designed with contemporary design principles, deviating from precedents that model real houses or garden sheds. Instead, the design was guided by the goal of creating interesting and different spatial experiences for children that inspire new forms of polay. L’observatoire / CLP Architects.

With a limited budget of 7000 Euro, the commission allowed us to seek for a precise and careful architecture. In this sense, our first intention was to create a building that could offer an experience of varied possibilities, using the least materials and formal recourses. This intention is translated into a structural system that performs various tasks: the possibility of light, shadow, ventilation and also to provide temporal storage space.

Our second intention was to conceive an architecture that could enhance and diversify the relationship between the visitor of the pavilion and the surrounding environment.

The garden is unostentatious, slightly wild but even so graceful, each spring apple and cherry trees blossom and when summer swiftly blows upon us our sight of the passing clouds is surrounded by slim blades of grass. The teahouse as a minimal place to gather Natural material The inner walls are constituted on one side by a view of the garden and on the other a clay parget. Acknowledgements.

Treehouse / Baumraum

Far from a child’s treehouse, this residence provides simple interiors with a touch of elegance. Constructed for a family with two children, the treehouse serves as an outlet for relaxation and is connected to their main residence via a slender wooden catwalk. More images and more about the treehouse after the break. While the residence looks to be suspended in midair, it is actually perched atop a wall of rocks and then extends off the cliff.
