The new High School is located on a plot at the boundary between residential and industrial areas, in one of the most important avenues of the industrial sector, on the threshold of the future equipment of the city. The implementation recognizes the importance of the main avenue, from which the building is accessed, and is arranged with the alignment of the main façade, but without renouncing a sequence of filters that allow distance from the street.

Trichterpoort Housing / a2o architecten + De Gouden Liniaal Architecten

The 20th-century belt outside the historic center of Hasselt has been thoroughly transformed in recent years. Small, mostly run-down working-class and middle-class houses, on narrow plots and with limited heights, are making way for larger, collective housing projects. The increasingly strict energy performance and comfort requirements, the development toward smaller average household composition, and, above all, the need for densification of the city center, means that in many places – like here at Maastrichersteenweg – the typology of the single-family detached house is no longer tenable.

House in a Meadow / Staruń Wanik Architects

October 2, 2022 Valeria Silva 0

The building is located in southwestern Poland in the village near Opole. The progressive expansion of the city has resulted in the intensive urbanization of suburban villages that have already become part of suburbs of Opole. The plot of land which the building was developed on is located on land that was originally meadows and pastures surrounding the compact village of Malina. The location of the designed building on an open, flat area, clearly sidelined from the existing village buildings, prompted thoughts about the building’s correspondence with such an environment.
