Automobile is our rival to beat.

With mere 1.5 million yen(=11,000 euro)which he saved to originally purchase a business-purpose Toyota Collora sedan to spare as total budget, we started our project.

The Taiwan Tower will become an innovative landmark people can identify with in present as well as in future times.

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

Article source: Paul McAneary Architects

The clients requested a large space for their young family’s life. Paul McAneary Architects responded with an open-plan design concept, to remove all of the internal walls of the existing building without any trace of columns nor beams and to create a seamless connection from the entrance right through to the garden. A faceted ceiling-scape was designed to force light deeper into the ground floor plan.

Clayfield House in Brisbane, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects

In January 2010, clients commissioned SLa to do a ‘traditional’ build-in-under project to their 1890’s Queenslander that had already undergone a substantial renovation some years before. The house, while grand and in great condition, ignored the site attributes and did not adequately address the needs of contemporary living in the sub-tropics.

Southold Animal Shelter in New York by Studio a/b Architects

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

Article source: Studio a/b Architects

AIA Peconic Chapter, Merit Award, 2010

An animal shelter is complex, being hospital, refuge, prison, school, community center, and shop. The program required multiple small rooms configured for both interconnections and separations, which careful zoning reinforces. The main entrance divides healthy visits from drop-offs. There are separate entrances for night deliveries of animals, public access to the community room, goods delivery and access to exterior dog runs. Most rooms require exterior exposures for fresh air, sunlight and access.  Sound, safety, air quality and sanitary controls have stringent requirements. A dense, circulation mesh results. To provide expansive places in a compact plan, day-lighting and visual connections between and through spaces are provided.
