Project: Reconstruction of harbor bath Knubben
Architecture: Snøhetta
Visualization: Aesthetica Studio
Location: Arendal, Norway.

“Originally designed by architect Ketil Ugland, the facility was used by Arendal Swimming Club for diving competitions, swimming training and other aquatic activities. In 1947, the harbor bath closed its doors before being taken back into use during the 1960s, this time as a jazz club. With its slender and clean lines, Knubben was a small yet elegant example of the modernist spirit. After substantial decay however, the diving platform was demolished by the Norwegian Armed Forces in the 1980s. In 2018, Snøhetta was commissioned to revitalize the facility with a feasibility study. The new Knubben is a man-made structure with architecture that draws inspiration from the shapes we find in the islets and skerries along the Norwegian coast. It will resemble a block of stone shaped during the Last Glacial Period, characterized by abraded shapes where soft concave and convex walls form cavities in the landscape. To represent the terrain as accurately as possible, the construction will consist of horizontal layers following the contour lines of a map” say the architects.

Project: Iceland House
Design & visualization: evoquelab in collaboration with Charlotte Taylor
Location: Iceland

The glass windows allow the home owners to have a 360° view of the landscape. And what is interesting about this project is the contrast between the mountains and the house’s metal cladding, one which changes colors according to the sunlight. That makes the house look completely inserted and connected to its surroundings.

Poetically designed by Mold Architects, nCAVED House is located in Serifos Island, Greece, and brilliantly photographed by Yiorgis Yerolymbos and
Panagiotis Voumvakis.

In-caved areas are ‘negative’ spaces. They result from severing and removing part of the rock. This rough feeling of a natural cavity was what we aimed to recreate with our choice of materials and color palette. Stone, exposed concrete, wood and metal are used with precision to create coarse inner shells”, tells the architect Iliana Kerestetzi

Mague House, designed by Mauricio Ceballos X Architects Mauricio Ceballos Pressler, is located Malinalco, Mexico, and photographed by Diego Padilla Magallanes.

“Starting from the pre-Hispanic cultural context, and the predominant connection with nature, the concept is based on the Mesoamerican worldview, where trees have a ritual meaning. The roots symbolize the connection with the underworld, the trunks the earthly human life and the cups the connection with the Gods. To emphasize this idea, the project is divided into three levels: the first one, a mirror base that gives continuity to the natural terrain and the roots of the trees, and allows the main volume of the house to give the sensation of floating; then, the living space, all on the same level where everyday life occurs; finally, the natural outer cover formed by the foliage of the trees”, tell the architects.

Project: Residential Building in Uperaustria

“With our latest residental building we propose new ways of living that react to changed values ​​of conscious lifestyles. The different apartment sizing is going from 60m² up to 120m² for the penthouses. Each flat comes with a huge terrasse and a real planting area in every floor, the penthouses are directly connected to a roof garden. The building forces the idea to give people a real alternative solution to single housing, which is one of the biggest problems in terms of land resources” says the architect Peter Wimmesberger.

Project: UC House
Architecture: Daniela Bucio Sistos
Photographer: Dane Alonso & Mariano Renteria Garnica
Location: Morelia, Mexico.

“The architectural design arises from the concern to create a project with certain spatial ambiguity between the interior and exterior and that could sometimes be imperceptible. The UC project is a residence in which all the interior spaces are in direct contact with the micro-environments generated inside the house. The project was always thought of as a walkable residence, that when walking through it, the change of textures and scales would make it space away from the ocularcentrism and more linked to a sensitive interaction with the user. Contemplative and silent spaces” say the architects.

Fascinating products by antoniolupi. The flourishing landscape grows in the most intimate spaces of the house and the transparency of the Cristalmood projects the objects into the forest. Boundaries dissolve, indoor and outdoor compenetrate in a delicate game of reflections, shadows and materiality that reconnect us with Nature as a primordial and generating force.

Which Sebastien Baert’s bedroom concept do you like the most?

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.

Got wisdom to pour?
