MJMArchitects: Chinguacousy Park Renewal

MJMArchitects: Chinguacousy Park Renewal | Up and coming design | Scoop.it

MJMArchitects' park renewal plan has made Chinguacousy Sports Park a hub of activity.


The local Brampton, Ontario landmark has three new pavilions which create a variety of environments suitable for a number of recreational activities. Together they lay a foundation for new activities and facilities to develop in the future. Sustainable features such as water retention systems, reflective rooves, recycled materials, highly efficient mechanical systems, and energy management controls modernize the park with a low impact on the environment.

A new park amenities and boat pavilion at the north pond connects the water course to the land activities; its wood cladding blends into the environment while framing views of the park. Deep overhangs not only contribute to passive cooling, but blur the boundaries between indoor and outdoor spaces by physically and visually connecting the pavilions with the landscape. 

This effect is complemented by new lighting, landscaping and pedestrian paths throughout the park- view more photos at the link.

A Coastal Summer Home in Denmark

A Coastal Summer Home in Denmark | Up and coming design | Scoop.it
For his family’s summerhouse in North Zealand, Denmark, a resourceful architect goes full tilt with native wood and playful geometries.

 

Danish architect Jesper Brask took his time— three years, to be exact—studying the site before pounding even one nail into the summer home he built for his family. After buying an acre of densely wooded coastal land in Hald Strand—an hour’s drive from the family’s main house in North Zealand, north of Copenhagen—in 2003, he felled 150 Austrian pine trees to make way for what would become the house, to be constructed partly from the lumber. He set up a mobile sawmill and had the trees cut into planks. While the wood was curing, so too was the design scheme. “It took three years to get into the real spirit of the place— to feel the atmosphere and get the right ideas for the house,” says Brask. During that time, on their visits, the family squeezed into a 100-square-foot trailer Brask brought to the land.
