Daring Modern Addition to Century-Old Farmhouse in the Niagara Escarpment

Mineral Springs Project by Toronto architecture firm superkül consisted of an intriguing modern addition to a century-old farmhouse. Clad in Corten steel and ipe wood, the extension was developed as extra living space to serve the needs of a family of four : “Built on 16 acres of land in the Niagara Escarpment, a working countryside and UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, this house extension makes a strong connection to its natural environment and the existing century farmhouse on the site.” The new wing is connected to the main house through a glazed link.

An array of visually contrasting materials was employed for the design of the modern extension: “Polished concrete floors run throughout the addition. White oak cabinetry lines the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom wall. New white oak millwork in the farmhouse, along with a new front door complete with a Corten steel shroud, tie the old and new together.” Sustainable elements include heat-mirror sealed window units, passive cooling systems, increased wall and roof insulation, geothermal ground source heat pump and radiant concrete floors. How would you comment on the overall design of this addition, in relationship to its environment? [Photography by Shai Gil]

Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts

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
