Sunyata Hotel in Dali Old Town / Zhaoyang Architects. Floating Hut / Tomohiro Hata Architect and Associates. Floating Hut / Tomohiro Hata Architect and Associates Architects Location Category Lead Architect Tomohiro Hata Area 78.43 m2 Project Year 2016 Photographs Text description provided by the architects. The construction takes place in a residential zone developed 30 years ago during the bubble period. Although this region used to be an idyllic countryside, following its development by a single developer to residential area as a city block, a rational subdivision into isolated houses surrounded by fences and distant from each other, have been applied to the zone.

Additionally, as a result of a house builders' famous 80's and 90's marketing strategy in Japan using the symbol words “My Home” to reply to the increasing housing demand following the economical growth during the same period , these houses were provided a pitched roof.

Mais en y regardant de plus près, on découvre stupéfait une construction en béton, dont les parois ont été moulées sur l’ancienne structure en rondins de bois. Non loin de Flims, commune suisse réputée pour ses stations de ski, se trouve un chalet inhabituel, à l’orée des bois. Entouré de falaises et de longs rubans de pins et de hêtres, cet ancien refuge servait autrefois à produire du fromage.

Aujourd’hui, il n’est pas rare que les randonneurs, intrigués par son architecture peu commune, s’arrêtent pour l’admirer. Max Dudler Architekt, Stefan Müller · Twin Projects for Bielefeld. Frankfurt, Germany. Johannisberg park info point The city of Bielefeld is bisected by forested hills, the Teutoburg Forest.

Max Dudler Architekt, Stefan Müller · Twin Projects for Bielefeld. Frankfurt, Germany

The trading town was founded 800 years ago next to a hill pass over this ridge, which was subsequently guarded by the historical Sparrenburg fortress for a long time. In the 19th century, the 200 metre high Johannisberg hill vis-à-vis the hill pass was transformed into a park as a destination for pleasure trips. The project planned by Max Dudler – consisting of a visitor centre for the Sparrenburg fortress and an info point for the Johannisberg park – uses the two distinct twin buildings to form a relationship between the cultural monument and the landscape monument.

The design of the Johannisberg info point is similar to the intervention at the Sparrenburg gatehouse in terms of shape, dimensions and material. To emphasise the impression of an ensemble, both buildings were constructed out of compressed concrete. House in Brissago / Wespi de Meuron Romeo architects.

The traditional in this region approach of building using lumber lays at the core of this house construction. However, the thickness of the walls of such buildings does not meet modern requirements for insulation, therefore it was necessary to insulate the walls on the outside which prompted a complex malleable design of the facades.

The facades are composed of two layers – recessed and metal trimmed, and exterior - trimmed with boards. It looks like a large wooden structure was fitted over a smaller metal one.

One Column House / NE-AR

NE-AR has completed an extension and refurbishment for an existing summer house on the shores of a Patagonian lake in the South of Argentina: the One Column House. The existing summer house was lacking of optimum spatial and functional distribution conditions that could fulfil the needs and the ways that the house was used and experienced: the house was sitting far away from the lake shore neglecting the most privileged views towards the lake and its landscape, while at the same time both neighbour houses at the sides block the vistas towards the lake since their footprints were settled closer to the lake shore.

Where in the past a small square marked the medieval gateway to the old town district of Ennsdorf, the garden house stands today. Arisen from an old farmhouse which was entirely ruinous it shapes the counterpart of the historical tollhouse. The traces of the past have slightly vanished, the wayside shrine, that once stood impressive in front of the tollhouse's gable wall, has been moved to the right.

When we normally feel "interior" or "exterior", what are the causes? And what are the causes of feeling "open" or "narrow"? This is house designed with much thought to how, from those root causes, we define the conditions of a space. In a long, narrow space, we constructed walls, and by laying out a space in which we experience many rooms, we turn "narrowness" into "openness. Green House / Sean Godsell Architects.

Perché sur une paroi rocheuse dans les superbes îles San Juan aux États-Unis, ce projet architectural réalisé par Tom Kundig des Olson Kundig Architectes est aussi fascinant que son paysage environnant. Intitulée « The Pierre » en référence au mot français, la bâtisse est principalement faite d’acier, de béton lisse et de placoplâtre.

Concrete Cabin by Nickisch Sano Walder. Le studio d’architecture allemand Nickisch Sano Walder Architekten a déconstruit une cabane alpine en bois pour recréer un refuge en béton avec la même forme que son prédécesseur. Un moulage de l’ancienne bâtisse a ainsi été réalisé pour créer la nouvelle armature. La modernité du béton rend ainsi un très bel hommage à la noblesse du bois. New House in Ranzo / Wespi de Meuron.
