Building entrances are an interesting phenomenon forming the cross-over between public and private space. This is a worthy competition exploring how this could evolve. Congratulations to the winner Studio Seilern with a very interesting entry.

Duggan Morris and look forward to more from this stable.
Ellis Woodman provides a well written account of it in BD. However the article could do with more illustration of its urban context - perhaps a map showing how it links to the neighbourhood - especially with the article preview:

I came across this in bdonline. It wouldn't be out of place in Russia. Good luck to the designers and to Living Architecture for commissioning it.
Since publishing this post earlier today my copy of the RIBA Journal was delivered. The image is featured on the cover and the article inside explains that Living Architecture is a commercial venture by philosopher Alain de Botton. This is one of several holiday homes which amongst other things have an educational purpose to the extent that he calls the venture a "social enterprise". I think I am even more impressed.
