A Classically Modern Loft in Kiev by Sergey Makhno

This 128 square meter (or 1,377 square foot) apartment in Kiev was designed by Sergey Makhno who gave the space a loft-like feel. Located in a historical building in the city’s old commercial district, the Podil Loft Apartment, named after the district, bared old brickwork with metal channel bars during the renovation.

The discovery lead Makhno to restore the bricks and cover them with a protective polish letting them set the tone of the design.

A West Hollywood Retreat by Amit Apel Design Inc.

A West Hollywood Retreat by Amit Apel Design Inc.

Located in West Hollywood, California, the West Knoll residence was designed by Amit Apel Design Inc. to be a modest-sized home with an open flow and a feeling of being outside. Surrounded by lush native greenery, the home presented many challenges during the design process thanks to strict building codes for the city. Luckily the team got creative and worked within the parameters to make it all happen.

From the architect. This building for 44 public dwellings, commercial premises and parking is part of the urban renewal plan of the old town of Manresa, which primarily aimed to regenerate and revitalize the historic downtown. The special plan drawn from the city of Manresa raised an important and ambitious idea, to revive an area of the city that was almost abandoned. With this intervention, the council has managed to revive this neighborhood creating an integrated set of public spaces, residential buildings, commercial premises and public parking.

The main objective of the design of this social housing building was to create worthy social housing, addressing the premises of minimal maintenance required by the city and answering the criteria of sustainability and energy efficiency required.

 

The building meets the functional program by establishing a close dialogue with the surrounding public spaces. Taking advantage of the different levels of the streets and the square, we establish a direct relationship between the operation of the building and the urban environment.

On the south façade, the building is in dialogue with a square that includes an old existing fireplace and a new walkway to the historic center located at a higher level.

The irregular shape of the building plan adapts to the boundaries of the site, with a facade towards two streets, to the existing square, and leaving an open courtyard on the back.

The housing program, with units that are designed with cross ventilation, is mostly laid out on three floors, reaching 4 floors at the south end. The parking area, concentrated on three partially buried floors, extends below the level of the square. Taking advantage of the level difference between the street and the square, we design a ventilated facade of vertical slats of galvanized steel, to ensure natural ventilation for the parking.

Two access cores at the ends of the building and an erratic corridor open to the interior courtyard lead to the different dwellings.

In order to accommodate a wide variety of users, we design different housing typologies with surface areas of 45, 60,70 and 90 m2. On the ground floor are some areas for facilities, commercial premises facing the square, and duplex homes next to the interior courtyard.

On the East, South and West facades there is a continuous gallery around the perimeter, bound by an enclosure of adjustable aluminum slats, which allow a ventilated and shaded terrace for each apartment.

This enclosure will ensure the visual and sun protection of the sun-exposed facades. It is a unified, dynamic and changing envelope that transforms daily depending on the lighting and visual needs of each user.

The building is designed according to criteria of sustainability and eco-efficiency, ensuring cross ventilation for all homes, using dry construction systems for internal distribution, prefabricated panels on the facade, solar control systems with aluminum slats, rainwater collection and gray water recycling. To ensure the energy efficiency of the building we provide a mixed heating system, with solar panels and gas, feeding the hot water and heating circuits.

Contemporary Alpine House by Ralph Germann Architectes

Contemporary Alpine House by Ralph Germann Architectes

Set in Fribourg, in the Swiss Pre-Alps, the Contemporary Alpine House was built for a couple who desired a harmonious environment, while also requiring enough space for 20 guests to come and gather. Ralph Germann architects took on the design and spent time in the surrounding area soaking up the local architecture. Inspired by local farmhouses with simple forms and volumes, the home’s design reflects those elements.

Residential Building Zug Schleife / Valerio Olgiati

Architects: Valerio Olgiati
Location: Zug, Switzerland
Design Team: Aldo Duelli (project manager office Olgiati), David Bellasi, Liviu Vasiu, Jonas Ulmer, Sara Wiedenbeck
Area: 13100.0 sqm
Year: 2012

Client: Consortium ZugSchleife; Peikert-Immobilien AG and 4B Immobilien AG

From the architect. Seen from a distance the floor plates projecting from the facade with their elliptical openings look like flying carpets with ornamental borders. For the residents these elliptical openings generate a sense of distance, since they prevent neighbours from seeing into each other’s apartments. At the same time the correspondence between each of these round forms and the individual apartments gives residents a feeling of living alone in a centre. The perception of space changes according to the point of view and the position of the sun.

The apartment floor plans are divided into a living area in the west and a sleeping and working area in the east, with bathrooms and wardrobes in between. In spatial terms the balconies form an extension of the living room. This impression is further strengthened by the large elliptical openings.

The exposed concrete structure is made of red-brown concrete poured in situ. The outer walls are clad with glass panels in the same colour. They appear fragile and light and contrast with the solid concrete structure. The use of the same colour for the cladding and the reflections in the glass blur the clear contours of the heated volume. As a result the elemental appearance of the stone is amplified.

Inter National Design Win Competition with Modular School Complex

Inter National Design (IND), based in Rotterdam and Istanbul, have won first prize in a restricted competition to design a large complex in Viranşehir, . Five rectangular courtyards, together with five dynamic public strips, combine to envelop the collection of buildings with a variety of both neutral and dynamic voidal spaces. A degree of permeability with the city is designed into the scheme with the “two types of open spaces following a gradient using the buildings as filters from the hermetic façade of the courtyards to the permeable skins of the outer façade”. Hills, pyramid stairs and areas of wild nature tie the atmosphere of the scheme into a unit within a “homogenous industrial roof profile and a modular structure”.

Openness and Permeability

“A central idea of the scheme is to conceive a complex that is highly green and open to the city and its landscape. The open design will allow citizens and students to enjoy the qualities of a park, public space and sports facilities during the weekend as well as making use of collective functions such as the auditorium, the library, the pool or the gym.”

“To achieve this permeability to the city and the landscape we have placed 5 landscape bands that cross the site at strategic directions. Each landscape strip due its particular dimension and relation to program has been design with a certain identity, one band resembles a park, other a pedestrian street, one crosses into buildings making passages and shadows, another performs as an urban square and one as boulevard. Their position and directionality aim to extend links to the surrounding territory, for example the wide park band continuous the direction of the neighbouring street.”

Intimacy and Domesticity

“While the bands are directed at various angles, the position of rectangular courtyards at the chore of the buildings gives the overall scheme a balance between the character of the bands and the periphery of the buildings as dynamic, open, porous in contrast with the identity of the courtyards which introduce other qualities such as stability, equilibrium and symmetry. Each of the courtyards depending on its size and position is designed with a special character. One is profusely green and playful at the residence quarter while a more flexible character is placed at the courtyard where the public functions such as auditorium or cultural center are located, promoting the use of diverse scenarios for this space. Another courtyard has fruit trees while a fourth courtyard is more suitable to outdoor education through its mineral materialisation.”

“The size of the whole territory could inhibit students and citizens to make use of it. The crossing of the plot by public space bands brings a more domestic and friendly scale to the complex. Each building also presents a different scale and proportion giving the user a clearer perspective of his location. Furthermore the buildings present a façade that by the exposure of its roof profile brings a more manageable scale for the complex.”

Landscaping

The Street: A narrow street section calls for medium size trees. A line of Pistachio trees (pistacia vera) is located on one side of the street to emphasize its clear pedestrian flow condition and allows vehicular circulation when needed. Precast concrete Pavers therefore are designed to receive heavy pedestrian traffic, service vehicles and no Furniture is required.”

The Boulevard: The oriental plane grove (platanus orientalis) offers a light deciduous canopy as an outdoor vestibule for the auditorium. Precast concrete permeable pavers alternate with granite pavers, ground-cover patches and concrete prisms promoting outdoor living.”

The Park: This strip aims to reproduce natural conditions of the area such as oak forests (quercus cerris) palm groves (phoenix dactylifera) and poplar groves (populus). Underneath their canopy gathering areas are located as well as sport facilities. The paving is 50% grass and 50% stone pavers. Furniture such as wood sleepers or solid granite blocks intends to emphasize the natural atmosphere of the strip.”

The Passage: Multifunctional outdoor space, without trees nor furniture. Pavers follows the general pattern leaving ground covers cracks to deal with storm water.”

The Buffer: A stone pines curtain (pinus pinea) protects the building from the primary road and oatmeal patches along the sidewalk separate pedestrian from vehicles as they with the agriculture surroundings. Pavers become clearly bigger than pavers in strips so as to define the public domain.”

The Periphery: The stone pine buffer surrounds the complex, it is interrupted to frame the strips as means of access and their position on the sidewalk is determined by the parking areas. The evergreen pinea protects the campus from winds, especially from the north.”

Environmental Concepts

From the beginning, the spaces were “based on user comfort and energy efficiency. However, considering the economical constraints for building a public school in Turkey, the proposed solutions need to be feasible and should not depend heavily on high-end products. Therefore we have tried to make use of passive systems, which will reduce the energy demand and positively influence user comfort.”

“An overview of the climatic conditions in Viransehir showed that the town has a semi-arid climate with very hot summers and cool winters. Wind is effective in the outer regions of the town whereas the prevailing wind direction is North and North West. Apart from the climatic conditions, another important factor influencing the energy consumption is the time intervals when the active systems in school (HVAC, lighting etc.) are being used. As a typical primary school in Turkey, it is expected that the school will not be in service during the summer times (mid June till mid September) and in the remaining period, it will be used only in weekdays (with the exception of dormitories). Considering the investigated data, it is desirable to design spaces which are composed of low thermal mass, high ventilation rates with natural ventilation and maximum daylight use.”

A Downtown NYC Loft by Adi Gershoni Studio

A Downtown NYC Loft by Adi Gershoni Studio

Housed in a historic building in New York City’s Greenwich Village, this loft presented challenges for the homeowners as well as the architect and designer they hired to renovate it. The owners, a husband and wife, brought in Adi Gershoni Studio to meet their needs, which included space for them both to work from home, a large space to entertain regularly, and room for overnight guests. The 2,200-square-foot space was long and narrow making the requirements quite the challenge.
