Blanco Architecten have completed the design of a modern family house in Oud-Heverlee, Belgium. The purpose was building a residence where the owners (50+ years old) could live the rest of their life. Therefore this house is ground-floor only and adapted to wheelchair use. Playing with the planning prescriptions the roof angles were directed to the inside/the middle of the house where they end up in a patio. Living and dining area, kitchen, entrance and bathroom all benefit from the patio’s natural light.

An almost square footprint ends up in an open floor plan with closely connected spaces. Behind the long white built-in closets there are functions as an office space, toilet, room for visitors. Large windows at the back give a clear view on the fields. Facades are made out of bricks. This is a low-energy-house, with sustainability being a key factor in the design planning stage.

A good building should make you want to look at it. Even if not always liked by passers-by, it should always make them feel something. Manchester Metropolitan’s University’s business school is a building that effortlessly fits this criteria. Indeed for many, the building by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios is their first taste of the architecture of Manchester as they travel along the arterial road, Mancunian Way. With its distinct ski-slope roof, and glittering mirrored appearance, it provides a flash of silver, and a dazzling break from the dull greys of the motorway, greeting motorists in a slightly space-age way as they enter the city

An example of a huge success is Heneghan Peng Architects’ Giant’s Causeway Visitors’ Centre in Antrim, Northern Ireland. Using the large difference in level across the site, the architects created two folds in the landscape. Bold, but not conflicting with the rather bleak natural environment, these folds draw all the man-made areas together and create one fitting man-made break in the natural landscape. In the words of the architects themselves, There is no longer a building and a landscape, but building becomes landscape and the landscape itself remains spectacular and iconic
