Silver House

d0079151_21234160.jpg
Silver House
Residential
2007 Maida Vale,London

Architect: Boyarsky Murphy Architects



The Sliver House (its owner prefers to call it the Glass House) has been built on the site of a single-storey wine vault that served the adjacent pub. From the street it looks impossibly small, with a 3m frontage and 8m height. It looks even smaller because of its wide and high neighbours, all brick, terracotta, stucco and tall sash windows: those great stalwarts of Victorian life, the terraced and the public house.

Generous roof terrace
So the first surprise comes when you go in to find the ground floor opening up away from you in a big wedge of a room, widening to 6m. This is the general living room/entrance hall, which ends in a folding-glass wall, with a generous 3m-wide roof terrace beyond. The room feels bigger than the small introduction would suggest, and bigger still because the terrace ends not with a panorama, but with a brick wall. You get the benefit of light without the dreariness of gazing out at a particularly vile 1930s apartment building and the container yard of Portakabins that is the back of the local school.

Upstairs things are just as pragmatic. The staircase launches itself across the house, dividing the first floor into two bedrooms and a tiny bathroom. Bathtub? Forget it. But the shower is unexpectedly large, and the route to it is a bit twisty. On plan, the top floor looks as if there might be some constructivist dynamic stuff going on — staircase slashing across the room — but you get there and you just don’t notice it. You notice that the stair is one of those in-the-thickness-of-the-castle-wall affairs, and when you emerge from it, that bedroom seems pretty big.

40 Bond

40 Bond
Residence

40 Bond Street New York, USA
website: www.40bond.com

Architect: Herzog & de Meuron



Now that the necessary period of intrigue and speculation has past, it's time to take a closer look at Ian Schrager's 40 Bond Street condominium designed by the Pritzker Prize-winning Swiss duo of Herzog & de Meuron. What they have essentially done here is reinterpret New York's downtown loft vernacular through their own avant-guard prism. And to that Ian Schrager has added an expensive sheen of luxury to make this one of the most ambitious projects we've yet seen. After the jump we take a little tour.
d0079151_4435018.jpgd0079151_444616.jpg














d0079151_4514117.jpgWith glass curtain walls now everywhere, Herzog and de Meuron have smartly avoided giving us another office-park-like matrix of hard-edged panels. Instead they have looked to the cast iron facade for inspiration and come up with a form that wraps the structure almost like protective cladding. These curved glass pieces (manufactured in Barcelona) not only pay a sly homage to downtown loft buildings, but they soften the overall effect of the modern geometry. It will be interesting to see how light plays off these glass spandrels. The facade of 40 Bond might just sparkle at noon and glow at dusk. The greenish Coke-bottle effect, which has been noted elsewhere, could make this a showstopper at night.

Artist / NYC

website: www.spencerfinch.com


d0079151_2104457.jpgAt the core of Spencer Finch's practice is his ongoing investigation into the nature of light, colour, memory and perception. Utilizing a range of media from painting, drawing, photography and installations using fluorescent lights with coloured filters, Finch distills his observations of the world into glowing abstract colour. Each work has its origin in Finch's own observation of a particular time or place with a lingering historical resonance, from a recreation of the light at the site of ancient Troy in Eos – to a futile attempt to capture the colour of a waterfall in Whit . Inherent in the work is the tension between the objective investigations of science and the subjectivity of perception and lived experience, endowing his work with a melancholy that comes from what Finch describes as 'the impossible desire to see oneself seeing'.

Architect: Valerio Olgiati/Switzerland


In 1995, the father of Swiss architect Valerio Olgiati left a portion of his cultural assets to the community of Flims. This legacy was provided under the condition that a certain Yellow House -an empty shell of no historical significance- was to be preserved and refurbished according to his taste, and, above all, ''to be painted white from top to bottom.'' These conditions were carried out by his son in a most radical fashion: the younger Olgiati altogether redesigned the classicist-inspired Yellow House at Flims so that today it stands out at the very center of the community as an erratic white cube, debunking romanticized notions about quaint alpine villages. For Olgiati's remodeling of the house the layers of the old unworked stone walls were laid bare, and the rough stone was reworked with the hammer to give the walls a sculptural, archaic texture. The stripped, ruin-like house was then repainted with chalk whiting. With the sweeping changes he realized, Valerio Olgiati completely reversed the original appearance of the building -while at the same time creating numerous references to its original core.

Valerio Olgiati was born in 1958 and studied architecture at the ETH Zuerich. Having lived and worked first in Zuerich and later in Los Angeles for some years, in 1996 he opened his own practice in Zurich and in 2005 in Chur.His major projects include the school in Paspels, the Yellow House in Flims, house K+N in Wollerau, the new University in Lucerne, a house in Sari d’Orcino Corsica, a small house in Rottenburg Germany, the project for Lake Cauma in Flims, a house for musician Bardill in Scharans and the museum for the Swiss National Parc in Zernez Switzerland.As a guest professor he taught at ETH Zuerich, at AA London and at Cornell University, NY. Since 2002 he has been a full professor at the Accademia di architettura Mendrisio at the Università della Svizzera italiana.

d0079151_17203721.jpgChum is seductively disarming—the juxtaposition of Moroccan and European motifs evokes the dwelling of a stylish but down-to-earth friend who excels at setting the mood. The entrance is stylishly disheveled with exotic flora and beautiful wrought-iron garden accessories; the effect is uniquely romantic. Everything here catches the eye—dazzling chandeliers, flowers peeking out of vintage olive jars, a decadent purple couch, darling knick-knacks begging to be taken home—and in fact, they are for sale. Quilted, toffee-colored sofas sit under the huge windows, creating a cozy nook. Chum also has a sushi bar raised on a dais next to the kitchen, where pastel slivers of fresh fish make sushi junkies feel like kids under a piñata. But, although it’s obvious a lot of fuss went into the décor, the menu is more homey, with everyday Japanese dishes that are prepared with motherly TLC: nothing fancy or exotic.

Kolumba Museum

Kolumba Museum
Art Museum of the Archbishopric of Cologne
2007

Address: Kolumbastraße 4 D-50667 Cologne
website: www.kolumba.de
Architect: Peter Zumthor

Kolumba is the art museum of the archbishopric of Cologne. As combination of place, collection and architecture it allows the visitor to experience two millennia of western culture in one building housing art from late antiquity to the present. The architecture combines the ruins of the late Gothic church St. Kolumba, the chapel “Madonna in the Ruins”, the unique archaeological excavation, and the new building designed by the Swiss architect Peter Zumthor.


d0079151_139247.jpgd0079151_140151.jpg

when I first visited this site in 1994 it gave me the feeling that all the pigeons in Cologne lived there.....
The idea for this sound sculpture began in 1994, when St. Kolumba in Cologne was a Gothic ruin inhabited by a large number of pigeons. Deep within the bowels of this place, 2000 years of Cologne’s history lay partly visible in the form of old walls, columns and crypts possessing a strong sense of timelessness. This extraordinary site was framed by the partially destroyed exterior walls of the old church. Temporary wooden roof in whose rafters the pigeons lived.

The task for a new villa for the Brouwer family was being written out as a competition.The program included the wish to use the maximum allowed of floorarea.The maximum allowed dimeninsions,based on a development plan,were 15m*20m,one-storey high.This means that is was necessary to make a basement.Another demand of the development plan was a pointed roof.A simple straight rectangular box was the starting point of the design,then this box was turned in a way that it had the impression that it was a pointed roof.
