Unforgotten Corner - Elderly-friendly Renovation

Located in a community built in the 1980s on the county border of Fenyi, Jiangxi, the old house has been standing there for over forty years. Time stands still in the community while the world outside has undergone radical changes. The house had been extended mildly several times over the years, but it is left behind by the time and a huge disconnect appears between the interior space quality and modern life. Lack of daylight and poor ventilation in the interior pose relevant safety concerns for the house owner who is in an old age. Thus, improving the quality of life in the old house within a limited budget is set to be the key target of the project. The community sits next to a railway. Most walls in the community are built in the style... En savoir plus

House J

House J is situated on top of a high hill, on the edge of a single-family housing area. The architectural concept is based on the site: the building has a closed rear towards the North and East where the neighboring houses are, and it opens to the South and West, towards a natural forest. The house curves around an old pine tree, forming a lap with a sunny and sheltered courtyard. The free form and lush garden create a contrast to the rectangular building. Kuvatoimisto Kuvio Oy Kuvatoimisto Kuvio Oy The height of the building is carefully fitted to the elevation of the adjacent buildings. The floors are not situated on top of each other. The cantilevered first floor creates a canopy for the entrance on the ground floor, whereas t... En savoir plus

West Village Apartment

Le Memphis, nommé et inspiré par le style de design milanais des années 80, situé au 140 Charles Street, est un exemple d'immeuble post-moderne typique de Manhattan. Lors de notre première consultation avec le client, celui-ci souhaitait une rénovation minimale. Richard Cadan Photography L'empreinte au sol de l'immeuble est de forme trapézoïdale, ce qui rend le plan intéressant mais crée de nombreuses pièces de forme irrégulière. L'appartement du client présentait la combinaison idéale d'emplacement, d'espace et de vues superbes avec une terrasse dans chaque coin. Lorsque nous avons illustré le concept et que le potentiel...

Andechsstraße

In the Pradl district of Innsbruck, we built a new, modern residential quarter with 118 rental apartments and 53 condominiums on behalf of the Neue Heimat Tirol and Raiffeisen WohnBau housing associations. The car-free complex is designed as a sustainable passive house and is located in the middle of a new public park.A long building protects the whole site from the nuisance of the street and separates the commercial area from the residential area behind it. Inside the islet, three pavilions of five, six and seven stories, offset in relation to each other, are built in a park occupying more than half of the total area of the plot. This provision – a front built on the street and the individual pavilions at the back – takes on th... En savoir plus

DC3 Tower

The tower in Vienna’s Donauplatte area complements the towers DC 1 and DC 2 by Dominique Perrault and offers 832 apartments for temporary living. The 100-meter-high building is connected on several levels to the existing Donaucity quarter as well as to the transport network via public plazas and paths. The projections of the three-dimensionally warped façade elements correspond to cozy alcoves, which frame the view of the Danube and the city in every room. Dietrich Untertrifaller Urban Context The narrow property – hardly more than a traffic island, surrounded by Wagramerstraße, motorway access and underground line – presented us with great planning challenges. But the attractive location on the Danube... En savoir plus

A Resilient Duplex for Fort Severn First Nation

In 2019, Two Row Architect and KPMB were invited to participate in the National Research Council’s Path to Healthy Homes program, which aims to produce a best-practices manual for architects and engineers working with Indigenous communities, who are in desperate need of affordable, resilient, culturally appropriate housing. According to the 2016 census, 25 percent of First Nations people live in overcrowded housing, and 20 percent of the Indigenous population lives in homes that need major repairs. The Assembly of First Nations estimates that by 2031, Indigenous communities will need to build over 130,000 new housing units and renovate 20,000 more.

Canary Block Condos (Block 16)

This 12-storey project is part of the Phase 2 build-out of the award-winning legacy neighbourhood known as the Canary District, which is based on a winning competition scheme to design and build the Pan/Parapan Athletes’ Village in time for the 2015 Toronto games.

St. Monica's Roman Catholic Church

A light-filled beacon of modern faith and inclusion In rapidly transforming Midtown Toronto, the intersection of Broadway Avenue and Yonge Street is among the many zones undergoing incredible change. A neighbourhood abundant with single-family homes, it is seeing the addition of more high-density, mixed-use residential communities offering greater access and diversity to growing locales. In this context, St. Monica’s small footprint needs to stand on its own as a strong expression of faith for the increasing number of parishioners. Through the majestic steeple and eye-catching curved roof, the church captures that expression – small but mighty. KPMB drew from our previous experience with worship spaces to create distinct and s... En savoir plus

Metzgergrün Quarter

Over the next ten years, the Metzgergrün district is set to undergo a profound transformation and change into a contemporary housing estate without losing its original character. To replace the 27 row buildings from the 1950s, a modern district with about 500 new apartments and generous green areas is being built here. “This urban composition of residential courtyards, social center, high-quality and differentiated open spaces, new networks and the right connections has the potential to become a model and future-oriented quarter,” praised the jury.

Waldgartenstraße Residential

For this small estate in a quiet residential area loosely built up with single-family homes, we have arranged two elongated cubes slightly offset to each other. This ensures both the necessary privacy and unobstructed, wide views. To the north, an inviting, semi-public courtyard opens up the complex, while the play ground is located to the north-east, separated from the private areas. The architecture skilfully plays with the contrast of raw concrete and fine wood structure. The façade is extensively glazed, the balconies offer constructive weather protection and summer thermal insulation. The emphasis on the horizontal, the contrast between closed and open areas and the targeted use of daylight appear unobtrusively elegant. Albre... En savoir plus
