La Antena in Iztapalapa, Mexico by Hierve

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

Article source: Hierve

The project is a residential development consisting of 100 departments of social housing. The development includes 10 apartment towers, 5 levels each, where each tower has 10 apartments of 72 m2. The buildings were grouped so that each and every one of the departments were opened to the south and will close as possible to the north, generating not only adequate guidance, but also an ingredient for optimal privacy.

First Floor Penthouse in Tel Aviv, Israel by Z-A Studio

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

Article source: Z-A Studio

Apartment Renovation
First Floor Penthouse extends the ephemeral relations between inside and outside. The primary asset of the apartment; its view onto the vast city hall square, is funneled in, creating a horizontal courtyard. This funneled landscape separates public from private, turning the bedrooms into a remote entity, when viewed from the open public space. The concept of the artificial landscape was carried through to shape the wall elevations and plans.

(RE)Configured-Assemblage is a developmental landmark proposal composed of reconfigured traces of shipping containers, through diligently reconnecting, revitalising, and humanizing the accessibility of the City of Long Beach, Long Beach Blvd and Broadway Area. Through proposing three types of innovatively reconstructed modular shipping containers, the overall construct leads to open courtyards, interlocking units, and playfully generated programs that introduce a new innovative topological design that regenerates and reconnects the community.

Project Update – November 2, 2011 – Nominated for Outanding Creative Achievement in Studio Design by the TEC (Technical Excellence & Creativity) Foundation.

The epitome of hip elegance and acoustical excellence, Jungle City Studios signify the dawn of the ‘Retro Future/Future Retro’ era. The $6 million + complex also recalibrates the benchmark for destination studio design.  Crowning a new luxury office building at 520 West 27th St. in NYC’s chill High Line district, Jungle City morphed 4800 sq. feet of raw real estate into a showplace duplex with soaring ceilings, a 370 sq. ft. terrace, a 2400 sq. ft. rooftop deck, and river views.

Ordos 20+10 Office Complex in China by Preston Scott Cohen designed using Rhino

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

Article source: Preston Scott Cohen

2011 P/A  Award Citation

One essential aspect of the modern office tower is the efficient, open plan found on each level.  An office building which attempts sculptural exuberance risks undermining this tried and true logic.  However, simple extruded rectangular boxes lack the iconic presence corporations seek as well as the spatial interest that occupants appreciate. The Ordos Office Complex employs an economical formal idea, avoiding sculptural excess by deploying a hot and cool approach.  A neutral skin and efficient floor plans are intensified by spatial incidents deep within the building as well as social spaces that multiple tenants can share.

Decameron store in São Paulo, Brazil by studio mk27

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

Article source: studio mk27

The showroom of the Decameron furniture store is located on a rented site in the furniture commercial alley in São Paulo. To make the quick and economic construction viable, the project worked with the premise of a light occupation of the lot, basically done with industrial elements, which could easily be assembled.

Perspective (Images Courtesy Pedro vannucchi)

The space was constructed through a mixed solution, with maritime transport containers and a specifically designed structure. Despite the spatial limitation imposed by the pre-determined dimension of the containers, the piece has impressive structural attributes that makes piling them possible. Two stories of containers form tunnels where products are displayed side by side.

Perspective (Images Courtesy Pedro vannucchi)

The ample span, necessary to show furniture in relation with each other, is constructed by a metallic structure. This space is closed, in front and in back, by double-height metal casements with alveolar polycarbonate. At the back of the lot, there is a patio filled with trees and a pebbled-ground. When both doors are simultaneously opened, the whole store becomes integrated with its urban context. At rush stressful hours, by opening only the back doors, the store becomes self-absorbed, ruled by the presence of the inner-garden.

Exterior View (Images Courtesy Pedro vannucchi)

On the back of the site is the office, closed by a glass wall that enables the designers to take part on the sales life. Two edges of the design process in contact through the inner patio as other opposing strengths also meet at this small project: The intensity of the urban life and a small nature retreat, the power of the containers and the lightness of the metallic structure and finally, the linearity of the tunnels and the cubic volume.
