Alireza Sagharchi Builds Chalet in French Alps: /Continued

This unique project is located in the alpine village of  Courchevel  1850, in the French Alps. The chalet is one of the few new buildings built in the village in recent times and is designed in the traditional vernacular of the Alps. The volumetric organisation and architectural elements of the design follow the  picturesque tradition of varying volumes with different orientation placed specifically  to respond to the panoramic site conditions, prevailing winds and light as well as  long views to and from the building.

The building is designed to follow the gradient of the mountain so as to blend in harmony with the landscape.  The solid pine rafters, trussed and other timberwork on the façade and the interiors as well as the roof have been designed in the local vernacular and executed by craftsmen who have maintained the tradition for generations. The wall as are a combination of solid stone coursed rubble and cement render.

Architect: Alireza Sagharchi at Stanhope Gate


COURTYARD HOUSE IN KUWAIT

This house in Kuwait is designed in the tradition of the courtyard houses which is the traditional typology of the houses in the region, this type has been lost as a model with the advent of hermetically sealed buildings and increasing reliance on artificial environment controls. The plan of the building revolves around a central fountain court which leads to an semi open court and to the garden beyond.

The volumes are stacked and the fenestration responds to the prevailing climatic conditions with lattice work windows and shuttered openings providing shade and comfort.  The predominantly massive masonry lime stone walls keep the building cool in the summer months . .

The proportion of the traditional Islamic arches and decorative mouldings and motifs of the facades highlight the architectural character of the building of being distinctly form the Persian Gulf region in contrast to the North African or Mediterranean variations

TAG Chairman, Alireza Sagharchi, appointed Cabe Built Environment Expert

This is the first time that TAG has been invited to participate in CABE,
CABE has now adopted a very pluralistic and inclusive approach to design review by drawing form a much wider set of disciplines other than Architecture, as well as the broad range of thinking across the Architecture spectrum. CABE is still dominated by the Modernist architects, and Mr Sagharchi's appointment is one of the more high profile ones.

THE GLOBALISATION OF MODERN ARCHITECTURE

by Robert Adam

OUT NOW

Martin Wolf, Chief Economics Commentator, Financial Times
"In this stimulating book, Robert Adam demonstrates how a global economy has brought forth a global architecture, in the form of commercialised modernism and the demand for iconic new buildings. The book ends with a question: how far will either the globalisation that occurred before 2007 or the associated dominance of North Atlantic architectural styles survive the crisis?"
