F-White House in Tokyo, Japan by Takuro Yamamoto Architects (designed using Vectorworks)

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

Article source: Takuro Yamamoto Architects

What the architect invented, was to put the rectangular courtyard at an unusual oblique angle rather than a right angle. Locating courtyard in this way makes spaces around the courtyard can have enough room to stay, and be chained each other directly at their corners, without aisle. Otherwise, inside spaces of the house would be divided into several parts, when the courtyard is located on the middle of the site whose width is limited, and unified feeling of the house would be spoiled. This arrangement creates not only sense of unity of the spaces, but also several specialized places to each purposes. In addition, each place in the house is facing to the courtyard, which is separated enough from neighbors’ houses, and you can enjoy complete privacy and beautiful blue sky.

Propose alternatives to ensure the survival of natural environments
Mar Azul is a place we know for many years for that reason when in 2004 built the first work we knew we had to intervene in a country that despite its great scenic beauty never had a legal support that will secure the heritage of greed of which lotean with one goal: make as land rent. What does it have a code, understanding the logic of this privileged environment, regulated by solving the mismatch between that subdivision inappropriate and the possibilities of building without losing the environmental quality of the site. This situation described is added as aggravating the proliferation of a type “picturesque house in a place of fantasy,” which gradually “domesticating” the forest, still owner of a rugged powerful presence. Operate on that site then assume its misalignment meant as a challenge and see how far, architects can make a contribution alternative.

L’ovella Negra

At the streets Syggrou and Valaoritou takes place a new urban transformation of the city of Thessaloniki, Greece. The old small industry shops are converted to coffee-bars, pubs, alternative restaurants…

The area combines the old with the new, the alternative with the common. And, basically, ‘cheap’ entertainment..

A new place was created there, a coffee-bar, in a building that is said to be the oldest in the town of Thessaloniki. It was built at the end of the 19th century, and was the private house of the famous merchant ‘Allatini’, known as such since 1926.

Since its opening in 1963, Montreal’s Place des Arts has been the centre of cultural and artistic life in the city. Its location relative to Place d’Armes in the historical district consciously established a strong axis for commercial and cultural development in the city. Including the original Wilfrid-Pelletier concert hall, Place des Arts now regroups five performing arts venues (six with the projected OSM concert hall) and a museum all linked by an interior hall and an exterior esplanade. It annually plays host to some of the city’s biggest international cultural events and constitutes the heart of the recent Quartier des Spectacles development meant to firmly establish the metropolis as an international centre for the performing arts.

New Headquarter Of Bank Of Georgia Illuminated Translucent Concrete For Interior Design

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

Article source: Architectural Group & Partners

Renovation of a building listed as national monument under preservation order.

The idea of light and nature showing through a building was the fundamental concept of redesigning the headquarter of Bank of Georgia, Tbilisi. Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright and Glenn Murcutt already had this idea in their minds as well as OMA, Office for Metropolitan Architecture Beijing, the architectural department of Rem Kolhaas architects in Rotterdam, for the high-class project “The Interlace” in Singapore. This idea was leading for renovation of the building in Georgia – since 2007 listed as national monument under preservation order – to be finished in spring 2011. A great and extraordinary office building was created: Incorporating nature in the whole interior design in forms of light. The architects of AG&P have realized a special highlight by using illuminated translucent concrete.
