The former Hand and Flower pub on the Kings Road have been carefully restored and extended by Paul Murphy Architects (PMA) to create a new high-quality, mixed-use development and in its own small way, mend the part of the street pattern.
3 attached houses replace a villa from the 1950s in a residential area overlooking Lausanne. The project makes maximum use of the plots potential for densification while taking care, through its form and materiality, to fit into its suburban and green context.
This project deploys itself in the great landscape of North-Isere, rationally adapted to the slope. The site, a large sloping meadow facing north, turns its back to the village. The vegetal environment is its quality, the topography its constraint. The program requires large and compact built volumes to store machinery and materials, such as those reserved for the surrounding agricultural activity.
MoederscheimMoonen Architects has designed the new Port Pavilion in the historic Maritime District in Rotterdam. The architects have created a new compact building that replaces the three outdated pavilions that used to be in its place. The pavilion brings more transparency and visibility in order for the historic harbor and the activities that take place in the building can be clearly seen.
Our new home was created in a historical part of a small South Bohemian town, which, although neglected, possesses a rather strong atmosphere and potential. The place attracted us from the beginning for its distinctive character and great location. In the narrow sleepy streets, next to the grassy patch of Kozina Square, we are hidden from the hustle and bustle of the surrounding traffic, while only a few steps separate us from the town center with shops, services, and offices, schools, cinema, theater, and railway station.
Located in St-Sauveur, an old industrial neighborhood of downtown Québec in which many buildings are being replaced by new housing projects, Quinto replaces a small single-family home at the intersection of Montmagny and Boisseau streets. The project includes three large units, a studio and a townhouse which are distributed around a compact scissor staircase.
Located in downtown Quebec, in the St-Sauveur district, Jenny is a multi-unit housing project replacing an underutilized corner lot, which until now has been used for parking. In an attempt to restore the balance between people and cars, the project focuses on the quality of living spaces and puts the car in the background.
We started with the paintings on the wall. The works are by John Prentice (the owner’s grandfather), an artist and engineer. Prentice has written about colour selection turning it into a language akin to a musical score in his thesis Colour Plane. He uses this theory of colour to tell stories.
The Story of Gardening museum is located on the edge of a small woodland area within the wider visitor attraction at The Newt in Somerset. The museum is set underground with a long glazed elevation opening onto the adjacent woodland. The roof is grassed and is inhabited by the estate deer herd. The museum has as low a visual impact as possible as one approaches it. The approach is dramatic. The woodland floor descends from the museum forming a dell at a lower level. This topography provides the setting for a treetop walkway. The walkway, called “The Viper”, starts its journey at the museum roof level and winds its way through the trees.
The owners of Electric Car Garage invited Social Studies Projects (SSP) to design a freestanding pavilion to be used as a waiting room for clients and a lunchroom for mechanics. Inspired by greenhouse structures, SSP designed a simple red steel framework clad in twin-wall polycarbonate panels keeping the interior bright, while gently obscuring the surrounding parking lot from view. Open clerestories provide natural ventilation. To complement the signature red of the structure, SSP designed a suite of tables, benches, and cabinets for the interior, powder-coated in coral and goldenrod.
