LONDON- NORTH FINCHLEY – WOODSIDE AVENUE-


Block of flats built along Woodside Avenue  in North Finchley in London.Iteresting building that draws the attention thanks to its contemporary design and a fresh look in between the surrounding detached houses from different periods.

Use of brick is still very characteristic for this area of London, but big aluminium windows with a very asymetric subdivisions, and a very contemporary flat roofs are really standing out – very surprising especially for me dealing with the planning councill for the area.

I often pass by this intriguing building and though it would be worth to share it with other people – will you agree with my point of view ?


LONDON – ENFIELD


A residential building in North London.
Todays special.- The building has been freshly constructed.

No google and no other searching engine can find this building in any directory bacause the pictures have been taken in our architectural office and not published so far.

You can see the building is very, very simple but you can not deny it has that something that x factor that
defines good architecture.

The entrance fronton resambles th Grand arch in Paris, but here you can see it in a much softer  incarnation, and the architect did not commit a suiside.

The architect who I know personally, wanted to introduce to the building as little ornament as possible .
To sum up,  it  was a quick project, not much effort put to it but the effect is really tremendous.
Well done, Mr.N 😉

DUBLIN, RANELAGH STREET- PRELIMINARY SCHOOL


Dublin – Very interesting place to live in, especially in the end of the last decade .


I was one of those lucky ones to live there for a few years and experience the unbelievable possibilities of having big money invested in  building process.


Very often buildings were constructed of very good quality, and well finished materials, also you could notice an interesting trend in architecture and design generally to use materials of natural origin, more often then it was happening in previous years.


The presented building is a preliminary school located  in Dublin, on Ranelagh Street .

 

It is kept in a small , very human scale and one can feel a freshness of ideas and a friendly enviroment very the priority to the designer.

Thanks to the use of natural materials, timber framed windows and doors, timber cladding, natural stone, smothed and polished concrete panels, lead flashings and roof coverings make the building looking contemporary and give it a very noble character.
 
 

The attention to details and thoughtfull and fresh use of composition , calls for a special appreciation.
