In 1999 Capital Meats, the former meat-packing plant which operated on this site for 80 years, was a sprawling mass of ravaged, collapsing, and abandoned buildings situated in the middle of a predominantly residential neighborhood. Onion Flats change all that. This once dilapidated site is now home to 8 dwellings that are rich in both history and innovative design.

The scale of the collection of the Capital Meats buildings (originally seven in total) tells a familiar story of a neighborhood industry, which employed the neighborhood. Since 1989 when Capital Meats closed, the site had been the source of numerous fires, break-ins, vandalism, and illicit encounters. “When Onion Flats walked through the building in 1999, they saw the burned-out shell of a windowless cooler with collapsing floors, potential environmental nightmares, and death. Underneath all of this, however, they also saw a place of strength, light, and life.”Save this picture!© Tim McDonaldProject gallerySee allShow lessUpdate: Xi’an International Horticultural Expo 2011ArticlesRem Koolhaas Keynote for Festival of Ideas for a New CityArticlesProject locationAddress:114 West Laurel Street, Philadelphia, PA 19123, USALocation to be used only as a reference.

The minimal family house was designed on the area of an existing summer house built in the 50’s. It is located in a small village of Zbecno in the protected zone of Krivoklatsko. There is a total building ban in this zone. The only possibility how to come up with a new project was to rebuild the existing house not exceeding the maximum built-up area of 50m2.

Above the garage, a new house was built. Due to the sloping of the site, the house stands on wooden beams and posts based in concrete footings. The site lacks enough noon sun, therefore the house was built with a maximum distance from the slope. Save this picture!© Tomáš RaslBecause of that, an outside covered area was formed on the garage level and more space was given to the entrance and the terrace on the first floor. The hexagon layout was the best solution for getting the maximum western sun penetration and views all around. On the first floor, there is an entrance, a living space with a kitchen and a laundry room with a toilet. On the second floor, there are two bedrooms, an office and a bathroom. Save this picture!first floor planThe client had always wanted a wooden house, so the system of KLH panels was chosen. This type of construction was the best choice because of fast construction and minimizing the building process on the site. The panels in the interior are in a non visible quality, but after treating them with oil, they are used as visible. The exterior walls are insulated with mineral wool and the facade is clad in untreated larch.Save this picture!© Tomáš RaslProject gallerySee allShow lessRem Koolhaas & Hans Ulrich Obrist’s ‘Project Japan: Metabolism Talks’ LectureArticlesKrankenhaus Nord Wein Hospital / ArupArticles Share Photographs “COPY” Family House In Zbecno / A.LT ArchitektiSave this projectSaveFamily House In Zbecno / A.LT Architekti Year: Architects: A.LT Architekti Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeA.LT ArchitektiOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesCzech RepublicPublished on March 09, 2012Cite: “Family House In Zbecno / A.LT Architekti” 09 Mar 2012.

Architects: Aat Vos [silo.shapes], Kwint Architects Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/241282/barn-house-eelde-kwint-architects Clipboard Area: 320 m²Text description provided by the architects. The task of conceiving a private home in the countryside south of Eelde raises the question as to how far the existing typology is suitable, without resorting to historicising architecture. This local typology is strongly determined by the simple Drenthe barn: straightforward, at a right angle to the road axis, centred in the countryside, without a privacy layer, functional, a single construction layer with roof. Farms fitting this description have already existed for centuries.Save this picture!Due to the departure of farmers from the countryside and the arrival of urban dwellers with a desire for space, many old farms are being used as and reconverted into residential farms, without altering this typology. However, at the moment that the need for replacement development arises for this new function, the question comes up whether or not a private home can be conceived within this traditional description by incorporating modern-day demands with comfort, privacy, and a subtle transition from exterior to interior. Save this picture!The design responds to this by, on the one hand, embracing the classical typology and, on the other hand, developing the new living demands. A layer of wooden blinds covers both interior and exterior spaces: A house is situated within a wooden barn. By creating covered exterior spaces at essential positions within this layer, a subtle transition from interior to exterior is created (ensuring privacy and comfort), without abandoning the prominent image of the Drenthe barn. Save this picture!In this way, the new art of living is seamlessly incorporated into the classical countryside, and the visual character of the countryside remains intact. The wooden layer consists of large shutters or arched doors, which can be manipulated at will to regulate privacy and protection from the sun. In this way, a lively image is created, harkening back to the old farm dynamic: The farm’s appearance is still changing due to the effects of usage. Save this picture!The plan also envelops a landscape design, which manifests and brings to life the transition from nature to culture. The barn house is placed on a large wooden platform on the border of the designed garden and the agricultural countryside, acting as a connecting element of the land’s old and new functions. By introducing this contrast, a new harmony is created, naturally anchoring the history of the countryside’s changing function at this location.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessKaap Skil, Maritime and Beachcombers’ Museum Wins Daylight Award 2012 / Mecanoo Arch…ArticlesBama Eco Resort / davidcloversArticles Share Barn House Eelde / Kwint Architects + Aat Vos [silo.shapes] Barn House Eelde / Kwint Architects + Aat Vos [silo.shapes]Save this projectSaveBarn House Eelde / Kwint Architects + Aat Vos [silo.shapes] CopyAbout this officeKwint ArchitectsOfficeFollowAat Vos [silo.shapes]OfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesEeldeHousesThe NetherlandsPublished on June 06, 2012Cite: “Barn House Eelde / Kwint Architects + Aat Vos [silo.shapes]” 06 Jun 2012.

The secular action of Cadaqués population interpreting the natural space and setting out the stone terraces in a dry process for the planting of olive trees and grapes, it is a morphologic characteristic of “Cap de Creus”. The course of time and the scanty means, they thought a technique and trace the system ground rules that optimize the natural resources.Save this picture!© Aitor EstévezIn an olive grove placed at the limit of “Ses Oliveres” beach and a certain distance of the old part of the village, is where that residence is projected. The stone terraces are parallels a the old stream that canalize the “tramontana” dry wind and, following the slope turn to west to receive the freshness of “garbí”… walls between 40 and 70-cm-high that with separations between 4 and 5 metres help to exceed the original drop of the topography, placed to continue the line of minimum slope. About 15 olive trees, 10 pines, 5 cypress and 2 mimosas, form the vegetal mass that crosses the plot from the east to the west, leaving a north gab that, as one, answer to the more elevated heights since where we meet again the sea.Save this picture!© Aitor EstévezThe house do not use up all the regulatory height because it searchs the horizon between the ground and the olive leaves. New horizontal planes from the old stream since the overhead of the plot turned up, passing through a ground floor that, as a gab inside the dig rock and the pre-existing olives, has a good thermal inertia and crossed ventilation agreed with the dominant winds. The structure of the bearing wall is drawn up tangent to the original structure of the agricultural construction… The terraces that were removed to build the new topography go back adapting itself to other needs, taking roots of the act of living again in the place.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessFlemish Barn Bolberg / arend groenewegen architectSelected Projects’The Great Sky’: Great Fen Visitor Center Competition Entry / Nicholas Hare ArchitectsUnbuilt Project Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/366858/beach-house-in-ses-oliveres-toni-girones Clipboard ArchDaily 2012 CopyAbout this officeToni GironèsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCadaquésHousesSpainPublished on May 04, 2013Cite: “Beach House in Ses Oliveres / Toni Girones” 04 May 2013.

So I call this house “polyphonic”. The site is a place used to be a workplace of the construction company and it seems atmosphere savage. It is not feel the context of orientation, so I put the house on the center of the site to be no hierarchy around the house. Save this picture!Sections This house changes the air volume between summer and winter. The aim of the nesting composition in section and plan is to change the air volume. This principle is similar to the principle of Japanese traditional “Kotasu”. To reduce energy consumption by controlling of air volume, it makes comfortable interior environment. I think there is very few architecture to achieve environmental control and good space at the same time. Save this picture!© Daici Ano I think this thinking works in subtropical region as well as in cold area. This method of construction is good way to be able to cope with various environments. I think this method is primitive way.Many other past projects are related to this project. For example “Layered House”, “Ordos 100” and “House of Eden” are closed to this project.
