Lausanne House project is the architectural equivalent of bungalow renovation in Québec, Canada. Opting for a sober and elegant exterior, Hatem+D Architecture installed a cover of pale grey wood at the level of the main block and a mixture of fibrocement and black bricks. A second floor was added, which accommodates three large bedrooms. According to the architects, landscaping was thought to preserve most of the existing elements. Rocks discovered during the works were moved in various places on the site. Additionally, three mature trees were preserved, their foliage allowing a play of shadow and light on the facades.

Aside from requesting a face-lift for the bungalow, the owners wanted a place filled with natural light, as well as large openings to enjoy their landscaped terrain. Therefore, the living and dining room both open to the terrace through generously-sized glass doors. Moreover, “a passageway was added in front of the residence and makes the link between this volume and the new garage. The hallway, generous and open, throws a great deal of light at the heart of the project.” Enjoy the virtual tour! [Photographs: Alexandre Guilbeault]

What is new and exciting now can quickly begin to look tired and out of fashion, so the best buildings don’t just consider what will be interesting to look at now, but also how it might look to people in five, fifty or even a hundred years’ time. 2013’s hotly contested RIBA Stirling Prize went to Witherford Watson Mann Architects for their work on Astley Castle, Warwickshire. In what RIBA Past President Stephen Hodder has described as an extreme retrofit, the project essentially saw a new building inserted subtly into the heart of the old, with a new, two storey residence now hidden within the sandstone walls of the ruins of this medieval castle, to be used as a holiday home for up to eight guests

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
