Office space in Poznan, Poland by Metaforma

 
May 21st, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Metaforma 

Office spaces are often associated with unfriendliness and anonymity.  Architects from the Metaforma Group have faced the challenge of designing a space that will not only foster concentration while working, but will also allow you to fully rest during breaks. Acoustics and individually adjusted solutions in surface zoning have become the guiding ideas of the concept.

STV House in Biobío, Chile by Cristian Berrios Architects

From the architect. “Reinforced concrete does not grow like wood, is not rolled like steel sections, is not jointed like masonry. It is more comparable with cast iron, another material cast in moulds, in which through long experience shapes have been developed which lead easily and gently from one constructive element to the next without any shock or sudden break. It is the overall view which, integrating the parts into the whole, conditions these lovely shapes.” (Robert Maillart, 1938)

Hello Lisbon Castelo in Portugal by Andre Espinho Arquitectura

This kind of intervention stands for a new approach and vision on the built heritage of big cities which, most of time, are left to abandonment and abrasion of time for different reasons, either these are historical, social or economic.

In this example we can highlight the Investor´s will and initiative, along with the knowledge of technicians, Architects, Engineers and builders to restore life and dignity to a building that was in a great state of degradation and which purpose has been mischaracterized over time. In a contemporary perspective and in it´s own context, we tried to enhance the experience of inhabiting the intrinsic features of the new and the old, in order to keep the most of the building´s character and expression also in the articulation of its interior space.

Mozia Museum in Sicily, Italy by Arnaboldi & Partners

Since the end of the 18th century, when the Greek colonization of Sicily forced the Phoenicians to retreat to Motya, Soluntum, and Palermo, the ancient Phoenician city of Motya lies on the San Pantaleo Island, in the lagoon of Marsala in Sicily.

In 397 B.C., Dionysus of Syracuse knocked Motya down after a long siege and the survivors found a shelter on the mainland, establishing the Punic city of Lilibeo. This settlement, today known as the city of Marsala, quickly gained in importance and overshadowed the ancient city of Motya, which the Carthaginians will conquer back soon after. The archeological excavations in Motya brought back an astonishing male sculpture, considered an original Greek artwork of the 5th century B.C., and the urban design of the settlement, of the city walls, and of numerous buildings. Above all, the most significant archeological discovery is the unveiling of a unique Phoenix-Punic warship, sunk at a battle during the First Punic War between the Romans and the Carthaginians in 241 B.C.

The community of Chimphamba have been gathering for years in a church building that was near to collapse. The community has also outgrown the dilapidated building.

As part of Youth of Malawi’s involvement in the village in Chimphamba they discussed the possibility of erecting a new space for community gatherings. These types of public buildings are extremely important in rural communities, as they must facilitate regular community gatherings to discus important matters such as food security, community challenges etc. Along with the chiefs of the village, Youth of Malawi asked A4AC to design and manage the build of a new church / community hall.

The Project´s basic idea was to have minimum impact in the natural setting. Having this in mind we planed the house to be felt smaller tan what it really is. In proportion it is 15% smaller tan the average existing projects in the club prioritizing the relation between the architecture and its natural setting.

CID Center in Badajoz, Spain by NGNP arquitectos

The plot is located in the urban edge of the small town of Calamonte, on a land platform that visually dominates the surrounding farmland. From this location, which gives it a special value in the city-field-landscape relationship, leave the main formal and conceptual decisions that inspire the project. Furthermore, the presence of the building far from the road access routes, also causes the building necessarily respond to them. Therefore, the roof emerges as the fundamental element of the design. Seen from afar, the building completes its compact presence thanks to it, dialoguing with the landscape of hills surrounding the place. Close-up view, the roof provides greater height spaces that require it, such as the assembly hall, likewise providing dynamism and special character to interior environment. The compactness of the volume required an abstract formalization. The building is implanted in the plot adapting to its longitudinal form. The generator concept of the plant is the opening of a crack-patio in its central axis, which runs through its entire length, becoming the main space of the project. In the north façade, this crack configures the public access between volumes, and after passing the vestibule, continues characterized as a more introspective space. The required program, consisting of administrative uses of support to entrepreneurs, is organized with the highest programmatic rationality and economy of circulation, guaranteeing the required flexibility. Uses are grouped into three clearly differentiated units: the business incubator, support offices and meeting rooms, arranged around the central lobby, center of gravity of the building that facilitates the quick orientation of the visitor. This zoning of the small building solves the problem of the compatibility of use in function of the different schedules that each zone has. Thus, an entrepreneur can have night access to his office without having to open the entire building, which makes it much safer to use.
