Eric Odor and Chris Meyer from SALA Architects completed the design for a 2,250 square foot sustainable residence in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. Entitled “The Urban Green Project”, the building accommodates three bedrooms and two bathrooms and was constructed with a budget of $500,000. Traditional and contemporary design elements were cleverly mixed together, resulting in welcoming interiors, filled with color and personality.

We were intrigued by this home’s energy efficiency, which is why we will list some of its highlight features, as mentioned by the architects: “Passive solar heating and day lighting, natural ventilation due to the narrow building profile and open plan, high-efficiency appliances, high-efficiency dual-stage furnace, dual-flush toilets and low-flow faucets, bamboo floors, composite fiber-cement siding, shell durability walk-through, blower door-performance testing”. Wood is present throughout (floors, kitchen appliances, wall panels, stairs), enhancing the feeling of cosiness. Next for the main house, the project included an unfinished basement and a detached garage.

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

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
