FRBI got their new other graphic design by running a design contest:
Cologne Private Residence Award
Check out FRBI's Other Graphic Design contest…
The Challenge: This bland, run-down semi-detached condominium building (exhibit 2-4) has retained none of its original charm from the 1930s: In order to convert it to a single family home, we need to start from scratch (i.e., tear down the existing structure and build a new one). The new building needs to be somewhat contextual to its surrounding buildings and especially the adjacent building (see exhibit 5+6). This is a difficult task of balancing one's creative urges with the realities of the neighborhood and German building code. Selection criteria (equal weight): - Degree of innovation - Fit with preferences - Feasibility / Fit with requirements
Re-invent a semi-detached private residence in Cologne, Germany, very close to the Rhine river. All it takes to participate is a few sketches and a brief description. This competition is open to everybody, not just architects and architectural students. 1st prize: 1000 $
Requirements: - Max. three full stories *plus* basement (which is ground floor level to the street side) *plus* penthouse - Max. area of 12,7 m x 10,8 in current position (see exhibit 1) - Seamless transition to the adjacent gabled roof building (i.e., no space between both buildings, same floor height) - Two carports will have to be integrated in the front part of the lot Preferences: - Enable full views to the garden in the south and the Rhine valley to the east. Balance privacy and sunset views to the street-facing north-west side. - Fresh, sleek, modern, and clean (not ornate), yet timeless design - Contemporary, but not after the latest fashion - No "über-styling", i.e. designs that are not attractive to the eye five years down the road - Functions (rough guidance): Starting from the top: - Roof garden - Penthouse: master bedroom + bathroom + (if feasible) private living room + terrace - 2nd floor: two bedrooms + bathroom + (if feasible) gallery - 1st floor (garden ground floor): living room + kitchen + guest WC - basement (front ground floor): entrance + mud room + guest room + bathroom + storage rooms FYI: The eave height on the street-facing north side is roughly 8.2 m and roughly 7 m on the garden side. The apex of the adjacent building is roughly 13 m high, but please note that this does not need to be the limit. How to participate: The purpose of this award is to collect fresh ideas, not to have something that will actually be built. Anything that visualizes your creative concept works: Rough sketches, Google Sketchup models, etc. We are neither looking for detailed nor ready-to-build plans, just for a few fresh ideas that fit the lot. This is meant to be just the very first phase of a multi-stage planning, there is neither intention of actually building the winning design nor building it with the winning designer. Timeline: Please submit your draft by Friday, October 15th, 2010 on www.99designs.com Winners will be announced as soon the project is closed.
