MilK decoration. De loin, « Refugi dil fieu » ressemble à un chalet traditionnel.

MilK decoration

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. Le propriétaire de ce lieu laissé à l’abandon s’est adressé au studio d’architectes Nickisch Sano Walder avec une demande particulière : restaurer le chalet tout en préservant son identité.

De loin, Refugi dil fieu ressemble à un chalet traditionnel, mais un examen plus minutieux laisse apparaître une structure en béton. Pin it Le chalet d’origine a laissé place à un cocon de 40 m2.

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.

House in Duhanino / Alexey Rozenberg

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. The inner space of the house is designed with the same complexity.

Wood, sheet metal and plywood are used in the interior design. NOIE - Cooperative House / YUUA Architects & Associates.

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.

Garden House Refugium Laboratorium Klausur / Hertl Architekten

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.

House in the Mountains / Wolff Architects

The site for this house is on a farm deep in the Cederberg mountains in South Africa, a landscape dense with biodiversity of the Cape Floristic Region. The setting for the house was determined by three factors, firstly a ‘bald’ spot in the vegetation was selected (in consultation with botanists) to minimise the impact of the house on the flora. Secondly, since the clients prefer to live outdoors as far as possible, “rooms” were found in the natural landscape which could accommodate outdoor cooking and eating, living and sleeping.

The area features a hilly, rural landscape and is covered with beautiful old cork oaks. The climate is mild and dry. The character of the complex is chiefly defined by the surrounding walls, which create the impression of petals that close and open towards the sky.

A house with a basement and two floors above ground was planned in a residential area in Yokohama, which is characterized by rolling hills. The 60-square meter site is sandwiched by existing houses to the south and the north.

On the east side, the site faces a 3m-tall retaining wall. AD Classics: Salk Institute / Louis Kahn. Progressing from the International Style, Louis Kahn believed buildings should be monumental and spiritually inspiring. In his design for the Salk Institute, he was successful in creating the formal perfection and emotional expressions that he so vigourously tried to achieve. Kahn was commissioned to design the Salk Institute in 1959 by Dr. Jonas Salk, inventor of the polio vaccine. Salk’s vision included a facility with an inspiring environment for scientific research, and Kahn’s design decisions created a functional institutional building that also became an architectural masterpiece. More on the Salk Institute after the break. Before designing, Kahn referenced and studied monasteries in order to build his concept of an “intellectual retreat.”

The buildings each have six stories, with the first three floors containing laboratories and the last three with utilities. Due to zoning codes, the first two stories had to be underground, sinking the laboratories in the courtyard. Concrete House / BAK Architects. Broken Pitched Roof House / NKS Architects.
