Our Readers’ Favourites: The Most Popular DETAIL-online Articles in June

In June, our readers were particularly enthusiastic about the  following three articles: The
Detached house in Prague,  the Secondary School in the small south Norwegian community Sauland and finally a restaurant in Shenzen, which is in China.

Living in a steel corset: Detached house in Prague

A detached house built in Prague’s Suchdol district in the 1930s was no longer in sound condition – reason enough for the architect Jan Šépka to prescribe it a drastic structural and design cure.

All in a cluster: Norwegian secondary school by PPAG architects and Helen & Hard

The new secondary school in the small south Norwegian community of Sauland has been realised by PPAG architects in collaboration with Helen & Hard. The measure involved the two architectural offices uniting cluster and village structures into a modern educational facility built of wood. Consisting of individual volumes joined together to form a single cluster, it provides plenty of room for free learning and project-oriented teaching.

Menu with a view: Restaurant in Shenzhen

A trip to the Doko Bar satisfies more than culinary tastes. Those who visit the restaurant in Shenzhen with its transparent facade are mostly there to see and be seen.
