KIDO Kindergarten

KIDO is a public kindergarten which we like to call „the yellow crocodile“. It is situated on a triangular plot in Aleksandrów Łódzki, in central Poland. The building is a technological hybride. Ground floor is made with concrete and bricks and to build the first floor we decided to use CLT. At the begining of work on the project it turned out there was not much time. The kindergarten had to be ready by September when children start the schoolyear. We reached for CLT to speed up the construction process. Both parts were made simultaneously. Workers were building the ground floor while all the wooden elements were being prepared in the factory. As soon as the ceiling was finished the large timber blocks have arrive... En savoir plus

Yomogidai House

The client is a middle-aged single man. We have a budget plan for a future marriage. It took about a year for the site to meet the client's requirements. The site is a quiet residence about 20 minutes east of Nagoya by car. Ben Hosking   Ben Hosking The site was a gentle slope with a frontage of 8m and a depth of 28m. I decided to make it elaborate and elegant from the impression of the client. In the end, I took the hint of the Japanese architectural shrine and proceeded with the plan. It was very difficult to incorporate all the elements into thin pillars and beams and deliver them rationally.  Ben Hosking Ben Hosking Team: Tomoaki Uno Architects Photographer: Ben Hosking Ben Hosking Ben Hosking...

Ogimachi House

This house was built by a son for a sick mother. An important concept of this house is the way private and society interact. Eventually, I proposed a house with no windows on the wall except for the entrance and the rear entrance. Instead, he suggested installing 32 fixes and five large windows that could be opened and closed on the ceiling. Ben Hosking Ben Hosking   Ben Hosking   Ben Hosking Ben Hosking Ben Hosking The structure is the traditional ITAKURA structure. For the outer wall, a 30 mm thick cedar board was doubled, and insulation was put between them. All made of cedar and cypress. His mother felt stressed when she started living, but now she seems very comfortable and I am relieved. ... En savoir plus

Berro House

Close to the Quinta del Berro Park, in a street bordered by leafy trees, we find this house built at the end of the 1920s. David Zarzoso The house, which was the residence of the sculptor Jorge de Oteiza in the 50s, was very damaged, and its facades had undergone numerous modifications. We began developing an investigation in the Archives of the city, which allowed us to discover the plans of the original project. David Zarzoso Based on this documentation, it is decided to recover the original image of the house: a white volume, with large windows to the outside and a Roman ceramic roof, surrounded by a garden that seems to climb the facade, by incorporating forged steel planters .

CMV House

The main actor is not the house, but the landscape. The breath-taking force of a natural landscape like this one, must not be eclipsed, but complemented and strengthened. Rafael Gamo While programming a space on the site, architecture must follow the virtues of the site and nature. Therefore, the project scheme virtually eliminates the private rooms of the program by placing them on a semi-underground level, which allows rooms to keep a view towards distant landscape. All the common areas get together in a simple and respectful pavilion, allowing the continuity and contemplation of the immediate and distant landscape.  Rafael Gamo Earth, roof tiles, wood and stone are the materials through which the proposal develops a cons...

Iowa State Stark Performance Center

Athletic success isn’t just measured on the field, it is also measured off of it in what student-athletes learn, their diet, their mental wellness, and their preparation for post-collegiate life. The $90m new Stark Performance Center at Iowa State is a shining example of an investment in all of these areas  - with the added benefit that its design accentuates the building’s draw. The new sports performance center is part of a reimagining of the facilities that surround Jack Trice Stadium, alongside Bergstrom Football Complex and the Albaugh Family Plaza. The SPC - as it is colloquially known -  touts a new Strength and Conditioning area complete with turf and exercise machines , a lounge, a nutrition center, a sports m... En savoir plus

Swimming pool in Piaseczno

The design of the swimming pool in Piaseczno is a continuation of the concept selected in the architectural competition in 2020, which was organized by the Piaseczno Commune with the participation of the Association of Polish Architects. The fundation of the project was to create a building in the form of a park pavilion, which in essence will differ from the commercial characteristic for this type of facilities. The main goal was to create a place emanating peace, which will contribute to building appropriate realations among its users. Caption The volume of the building has been designed as withdrawn in relation to the neighboring streets, which enables the creation of a landscape buffer emphasizing the character of the pavilion.

RFZ interior in the mountain

Refurbishment project of an apartment in a building from the 1970s near Campo Carlo Magno in Madonna di Campiglio Riccardo Giancola The project starts from the redefinition of the interior spaces, relocating the services and giving a new configuration to the spaces of the living area. Where the open kitchen was previously, the idea was to create a new volume in the living area, which would contain the services, the new bathroom and a kitchenette separate from the living room but which at the same time would give order and redefine the living area. The new volume is clad in larch wood with a natural finish to make the warm grain of the wood visible, marked by vertical strips of the same essence. The challenge was to rethink the classic...

Anemos beach bar

The proposal aimed at the formation of a unique identity for the café Anemos Kourouta through the design of its interior implementing a singular system in its internal envelope.  This was pursued by the creation of a continuous inner “skin”, which derived from wind flow diagrams and was based on the name of the café (Ανεμος is wind in Greek). This interior surface covered the interior walls with a total length of 45 meters and surface of 230 m2. Caption The structure is a composite multi-leveled surface that extends gradationally upwards, towards the interior. The frame was composed by curved steel beams and the cladding was made out of orthogonal wood pieces with a gra... En savoir plus
