ok…..We are back on board!
dutch firm UNStudio has just completed the ‘haus am weinberg’ outside of stuttgart on a site situated between the town and a terraced
vineyard. the white house is organized primarily around the twisting vertical circulation located at its core, while the form responds
directly to the topography of the immediate landscape. program elements are then placed around the central stairs following the sun’s
path to benefit from the greatest amount of natural light during the peak times that the space would be used.
the free-flowing load bearing concrete structure is minimized to its essential qualities to create a light airy volume. horizontal floor
slabs and the roof plane being supported by the elevator shaft, two pillars and one interior column which free the corners to be
wrapped in glazing. soft oak flooring, natural stone and stucco flecked with bits of reflective rock bounce light deep into the rooms
with framed views of the exterior. at the heart of the residence is a contrastingly darker room dedicated to music and the hunt.
In Brooklyn, a seemingly modest plumbing fixture company is thriving post recession by exporting its American-made products to China.

Rolling Master Plan by Jägnefält Milton
A project for the Norwegian city of Åndalsnes that was awarded third prize in an open international masterplan competition. Mobile buildings roll on old train tracks as season and situations change, complementing the city and landscape with facilities like a rolling hotel, a rolling public bath, a rolling park and a rolling concert hall. Really dreamlike. See all the details here.
