Alkmaar City Office / Proof of the sum

Alkmaar as most innovative 100k+ municipality
The Municipality of Alkmaar (The Netherlands) has set itself a challenging target. It aims at becoming the most innovative 100k+ municipality of the Netherlands by 2021. Innovative in the area of providing services and the manner of in- and external cooperation. To this end, an organisational development plan has been drawn up. Parallel with changing the organisational model, customization of the own accommodation is stated as an essential to step to realize the objective. Working procedures shift from departments with fixed teams and their own clearly defined range of tasks to an organisation with constantly alternating teams on the basis of competencies and own responsibilities. A municipal officer emerges who is empowered to take responsibility, who cooperates optimally with colleagues and partners, who pro-actively meets with residents, community centres and entrepreneurs. What counts is output and not just the physical presence at the office. With respect to accommodation, the development plan states: “Create a flexible, sustainable working environment that stimulates an efficient and effective way of working and that reflects the organisation’s identity and enhances it.”

1Q1 Kitchen and Bar / Khosla Associates

September 22, 2018 Rayen Sagredo 0

Located in the Landmark Indian Express Building on Queens Road in Bangalore, the name of this Bar, Restaurant and nightlife venue is derived from the Road number and pin code of its address; No.1 Queens Road, Bangalore 1.
The building was originally designed in a 1930’s Art Deco Style and as Architects we wanted to further the Deco character of the building by integrating a prominent arched colonnade into the existing fenestrations on the street level. The Colonnade, painted in a deep red-oxide color recalls the visual language of the High court of Karnataka in the same precinct.

Hackney Mews House / HUTCH design

September 21, 2018 Rayen Sagredo 0

A complete reconfiguration and extension of a Mews House in Hackney, for a young, growing family.  The original two-storey, brick property was embedded amongst a series of buildings at the back of Broadway Market, and as a consequence, felt claustrophobic, confined, and had little source of natural light. To turn this small property, into a larger, more usable modern home, we had to be inventive in its use of space.

The cabin is designed as a pavilion among the other buildings of the Sand Farm. The building has the same footprint as an earlier annex building and reinterprets the building to satisfy modern demands. The construction system of wooden frames is reinterpreted in the new building, with a layer of glass with shutters that close off the original volume.

Broadmoor Residence / David Coleman Architecture

September 20, 2018 Rayen Sagredo 0

Our design explores the notion of merging building and landscape. The original house, designed in 1956 by a prominent Seattle architect, is located in the private enclave of Broadmoor. It was conceived as a meandering, one-story structure on a pastoral, ½ acre site. The original plan was rather ambiguous, gesturing toward the landscape but never fully embracing it. A 1970’s remodel further eroded the integrity of the plan, resulting in a muddled house with little coherent spatial integrity.

After several years of being located in San Ángel, a neighborhood south of Mexico City, and after our first six years as an independent architecture firm, the opportunity to change our workshop’s location emerges. Our needs regarding space and location began to change: that which began as a nearly individual studio began to shift gradually towards a collective space, where a team of several architects take part in our daily tasks.

De Rijck – Matthys House / Atelier d’architecture Pierre Hebbelinck – Pierre de Wit

September 20, 2018 Rayen Sagredo 0

While meeting strict criteria for achieving low energy consumption, the building offers an exceptional relationship with its context. The house formed its clearance by responding to the constraints and attributes of the site. Its silhouette is divided into two wings opening onto the rural landscape; it also offers a feeling of spontaneous welcome. It is integrated into the site’stopography, ordered simultaneously by the relief and the poor quality of the soil, thus creating the upper floors with gentle spaces without modifying the natural configuration of the lot.

Greenhouse as a Home / BIAS Architects

In 1644, while introducing the mercury barometer, Evangelista Torricelli wrote: “We live submerged at the bottom of an ocean of the element air, which by unquestioned experiments is known to have weight.” Probably, this is one of the most dramatic statements in the early history of atmospheric science. Not only, this is a dramatic statement for architecture, too. Indeed, following Torricelli discovery, we are “submerged” in an element that has properties. Most important, these properties –that we call climatic- can influence the way we inhabit. So, since today we can artificially control the climate, the walls are no more the only important element of architecture.

Value the small, the tiny, the almost imperceptible. Observe and attend to architecture closely, from very close. Pursue and be persecuted for the last detail, with no option to stop before. To reach, in certain case, to the aggregate with which the joint between two tiles will be executed, to make the project depend on it, and to know that the project depends on it.

Millions of square feet of warehouse roofs exist in cities, occupied primarily by pigeons and mechanical units. In Seattle, many warehouses are near waterways with beautiful territorial views. This small, urban residence exemplifies what is possible when looking at these forgotten landscapes as new opportunities.

Shaft House is a project pertaining to the urban-regeneration and aesthetic rejuvenation through low-cost building strategies. Slightly in contrast with its immediate surroundings, it nevertheless, subtly resides in a camouflage of the neighborhood through appropriate use of materials and building techniques.
This house negotiates between the vernacular and the contemporary. Shaft House attains the objective of creating an economically efficient, sustainable and responsive housing design through function and innovation.
