Com seu telhado dobrado, feito de madeira e aço, e paredes envidraçadas, este centro comunitário é um anexo de uma escola primária construída nos anos 60 em Loker, na Bélgica. O governo local financiou esse projeto do estúdio holandês @Marc_Koehler_Architects e outros sete, com o objetivo de melhorar as instalações comunitárias existentes e, assim, atrair novos habitantes. Isso mostra como a arquitetura e o urbanismo podem ser importantes para uma região. Foto por Filip Dujardin./ With its folded roof made of timber and steel and glazed walls, this community center is an annex of a primary school built in the '60s in Loker, Belgium. The local government has funded this project by Dutch studio @Marc_Koehler_Architects and seven others with the aim of upgrading existing community facilities and, thus, attract new residents. This shows how architecture and urbanism can be important to a region. Photography by Filip Dujardin. #guettaniquetarquitetura#Arquitetura#Urbanismo#Loker#Belgica#MarcKoehlerArchitects#FilipDujardin

Republica Amsterdam is conceived as a "urban village" or "micro city" as part of Buiksloterham’s transformation from an industrial area and harbour towards a vital mixed- use city district and circular economy. An ensemble of six volumes with lofts to buy and rent, a hotel, 2 bars and a restaurant and workspaces encloses a network of pedestrianised travertin squares and alleys with loads of green and shared functions such as co-working space, a gym & spa and a natural swimming pool and roofdeck. All service spaces and logistical facilities are placed in a semi-sunken car and bike parking garage. The positioning of the volumes and open spaces relate to the old factory plan and add connect with the site. The complex has state of the art recycling and sustainable power systems and experiments with reused materials such as bricks, recycled concrete and corten steel and renewables such as a Timber hotel facade. The Superlofts micro tower consists of ten spacious and bright lofts within a flexible concrete framework that allows future owners to create custom living and working spaces and unique outdoor spaces. The stairs and elevators are placed outside of the volume giving each loft "a front door on the square" and creating a factory-like aesthetic and optimal spatial flexibility and GLA ratio.#Superlofts#marckoehlerarchitects#Openbuilding //www.republica.amsterdam/ #republicabuiksloterham#vinkbouw#banlieu#marckoehlerarchitects#superlofts#masscustomisation#climatepositive#sustainabledesign#modularhousing#modularconstruction#prefabrication#offsiteconstruction#designedtoadapt#designedtogrow#loose-fit #adaptablebuilds#openbuilding#buildingcommunity@architecture_hunter@next_top_architects@dezeen@architizer#superarchitects#archilovers#architecturemodel#architecturedose#architecture_view#architecturestudent@critday@iarchitectures#arquitectura@arquitetapage#archilovers#arc_only@sky_high_architecture@arcfly_ft@arquisemteta@arqsketch@creativfields@synarchitecture@architecturefactor#arch_impressive

#6>A pleasure tour to Superlofts no.1 and home of the founder Marc Koehler. We both share the sentiment that the open building system could be and should be the solution to global housing issues, by decentralising architecture and providing a framework that could be adapted over time, that allows longer lifespan for built structures in the future⚡️Mr Koehler has also agreed to be one of the keynote speakers during KLAF2020 in July. See you in Kuala Lumpur.-"Superlofts offers its residents the freedom to design and/or self-build their homes from scratch incorporating any hybrid function, and co-create the shared spaces as a community.Resilient buildings can adapt and evolve to a city’s ever-changing programme and the lifestyles of the people who inhabit them."-@marc_koehler_architects@superlofts@open_building_eu@klaf.2019 -#architecture#openbuilding#superlofts#design#architectureforcommunity#marckoehlerarchitects#rexstudy

Да-да, наверное все уже устали смотреть на внесезонные фоточки из Нидерландов, но у меня есть в плане выставить последние 3 фотографии))) Поэтому сегодня я расскажу о современных квартирах-ячейках в Нидерландах.Еще в 20-30х годах прошлого века Российские архитекторы-конструктивисты пытались пустить в массы дома с квартирами-ячейками, но эти проекты быстро сошли на нет.И спустя почти век мы можем снова посмотреть на реализацию подобного архитектурного явления, но уже в Нидерландах.А если конкретнее, то мы посмотрим на работы студии "MKA" голландского архитектора Марка Келлера. Они продвигают в массы проект "Суперлофты". Как говорит сам архитектор "Суперлофты - это система для жизни, которая позволяет людям гибко, модульно, творчески подходить к городскому пространству"Суть проекта в том, что вы сами участвуете в проектировании своей жилой ячейки совместно с дизайнерами мастерской. Конструкция ячейки разработана таким образом, чтобы в перспективе вы легко могли расширить и поменять в ней планировку.А замкнув материальный, энергетический, водный, экологический и мусорный циклы, проект находится на пути к тому, чтобы стать одной из первых в Нидерландах климатически позитивных концепций жилья.

We transformed the casco superloft to balance the family’s public and private realms. The ‘Tower House’ is designed as a series of open and sociable spaces, separated by three intimate volumes with specific programme. The loft resembles a small village: the family spend time together in the tall, light-filled public areas, and retreat to quiet spaces that are neatly concealed in three slender towers. Designed to optimise a small footprint, the layout eliminates traffic zones, while prioritising connection and a feeling of spaciousness.Video by @stijnstijl for @superlofts#urbanechoes#marckoehlerarchitects#superlofts@marc_koehler_architects#design#UE1408#interiordesign#smallfootprint#dezeen#kntxtr#archdaily#buiksloterham#amsterdam#worldarchitecturefestival#openbuilding.co#familyloft#towerhouse#flexible#meditation#yoga#instaarchitecture#architecturereview

Yesterday I gave my first 1 hour Keynote at WAF , chaired by Jeremy Melvin. I was super nervous but luckily it went well. Thanks to all who helped me prepare and gave such good feedback. "As co-initiator of a new online platform www.openbuilding.co featuring current developments in Open Building - Marc will present an overview of new initiatives and projects. He will elaborate on three themes: Open Architecture, Open Development, and Open Systems, and connect the principles of Open Building to new ways to incorporate circularity, sustainability and the influence of individuals and communities into residential projects".

At the same time, Open Buildings support the transition from the consumer society to one based on participation, involvement and inclusion.#waf2019#worldarchfest#openbuildingsummit#Openbuilding Sustainability #marckoehlerarchitects#superloftshoorn#superlofts#Repost@worldarchfest#climatepositive#circulareconomy#sustainabledesign#modularhousing#modularconstruction#prefabrication#offsiteconstruction#designedtoadapt#designedtogrow#loose-fit #adaptablebuilds#openbuilding#buildingcommunity@architecture_hunter@next_top_architects@dezeen@architizer#superarchitects#archilovers#architecturemodel#architecturedose#architecture_view#architecturestudent@critday@iarchitectures#arquitectura@arquitetapage#archilovers#arc_only@sky_high_architecture@arcfly_ft@arquisemteta@arqsketch@creativfields@synarchitecture@architecturefactor#arch_impressive

How do we create a resilient and flexible building model that reflects the social complexities of our time?⁠⠀⁠⠀Superlofts by Marc Koehler Architects combine modular design with prefabrication methods to create a diverse mix of lofts types and flexible programs that can easily adapt overtime. Marc will be a keynote at the WAF Open Building Summit where he will discuss how buildings form the “infrastructure” for others (developers, home-owners and users) to inhabit and co-produce their own environment. ⁠⠀ Video above: Superlofts Holenkwartier teaser.
