Gemeenteflat Maastricht | Humble Martens & Willems Architecten

The residential building is a total composition with a classic beginning, middle and end, with different building heights and nuances in the plinth and the crowning. With the renovation of the flat in the early 1980s, the original and very refined wooden frames were replaced by coarse plastic frames. The masonry volumes were plastered in a sober brown color, referring to the stone color.

Where Eagles Dare | GRAS Reynés Arquitectos

Where Eagles Dare, designed by GRAS Arquitectos, is a residence offering dramatic topography and fabulous views.

The choice of materials for the house reinforces the concept.

Nippon Shinyaku- Koku | Reiichi Ikeda Design

Nippon Shinyaku- Koku, designed by Reiichi Ikeda Design, aims to create an open space while controlling the consciousness of lookers to emphasize the individual areas’ gentle form. Given the current environmental conditions, in which buildings do not face public roads as they did in the past, the team was conscious of the need to connect the interior, as it was left, to the exterior. This view of the site and its colors express the ongoing process in this change in color, as though it is changing the building’s interior as well.
