Situated in the neighborhood of Fort Greene in New York, this Brooklyn Townhouse is a restoration of a dilapidated-state dwelling found on the site. Ensemble Architecture took on the challenge of upgrading the building, by adding a new rear wall and a two-level extension at the back of the house. This addition connects to the living spaces above through interior steel and glass windows that resemble the ones found on the front facade. The interiors are warm and inviting, due to an inspiring array of materials and textures.

Natural elements were elegantly added to the design: “The doors at the garden open completely to create a seamless connection between the kitchen, dining level and the garden. Vines are planted in recessed planters along the two-story party walls in the dining room–an interior which was designed with the idea of being an indoor-outdoor space where the garden is welcome inside. The vines will cover the double-story party walls and will add an organic quality to all of the spaces that the dining room connects”, explained the architects. The top of the addition is a private master bedroom balcony, offering a perfect retreat for the inhabitants. [Photography courtesy of Ensemble Architecture]

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
