Connecting Space HK in Hong Kong by Parallel Lab

 
June 22nd, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Parallel Lab

The challenge of designing a space for the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK) in Hong Kong was to offer the most flexible framework for a variety of activities such as workshops, exhibitions, performances and others to happen. The rough concrete shell was therefore planned as a adaptive spatial infrastructure. To reinforce the concept of a “tunnel” between Zurich and Hong Kong and invite the neighbourhood to interact with the space the façade is worked out as a porous interface. Instead of a fix facade two layers of polycarbonate roller shutters create a translucent buffer zone that can alternately or simultaneously lift up and fully open the end of the “tunnel” to the street. The 25m long room can on the other hand be configured in a sequence of different sized spaces.

The owners of this 400-seat urban brewery on Seattle’s Capitol Hill wanted the aesthetics of the former 1920s-era auto showroom and service area to reflect the utilitarian nature of the work performed within it. The design team was able to retain the ambiance of the original masonry building while still incorporating necessary energy and structural upgrades.

Housing developments and family member

The site of this house was a housing development  which have passed around 40 years since the area had stared selling. There are over 400 numbers of houses but they have no value as a property and people who are living in are not so young anymore. The demands of client are an over 330 square meter land space and enough distances from neighbors for a better privacy. Then the site was thought as the better conditions because of the low price of land and the density of the development.

Redondo Building in Coimbra, Portugal by João Branco e Paula del Rio, Arquitectos

The “Redondo” is the last of a row of four buildings built at the beginning of the 20th century in the center of Coimbra. Its cylindrical shape responds to the oblique cross between two streets, and gives the building a certain singularity and its name. The original organization in two independent houses: an apartment on the ground floor and a house with two floors and garret on the upper level, was maintained.
