Schindler Elevator Corporation U.S. Headquarters in Morristown, New Jersey by ikon.5 architects

Saturday, January 21st, 2012

Article source: ikon.5 architects

The interior renovation of the Swiss-based Schindler Elevator Corporation transforms an existing mundane 1970’s office building into a distinctive U.S. Headquarters. Schindler’s objective was to create an interior environment that expressed the minimal and purist design aesthetics of its Swiss engineering heritage. Schindler’s corporate mission is to safely move millions of people each day with their elevators and escalators throughout the world. Inspired by contemporary artists working with light and color to illustrate space and movement, our design creates a series of one point perspective ‘mise en scènes’ that abstractly explore movement and displacement.

Student Salon in London, UK by Feix&Merlin

Saturday, January 21st, 2012

THE STUDENT SALON NOW

The LSE’s student salon is currently an unsuccessful space: Its walls are cluttered with unsightly alarm sounders, fire extinguishers and cable trunking, a big vending maching in front of the window blocks views in and out of the space and the big recycling bins are in everybody’s way. The lighting is mismatched and inappropriate for the type of use and the furniture is neither inviting nor comfortable. The space is quite simply not very attractive.

Casa Diaz in Valle de Bravo, México by Productora Architect

Saturday, January 21st, 2012

Article source: Productora

This property adjoins a large lake in a small town situated a few hours from Mexico City. To take full advantage of the relationship with the surroundings, a system of elongated rectangular volumes was used, with one side of each completely open toward the lake. The sloping plot and the amount of surface to be realized led to the creation of three volumen stacked in a zigzag pattern, generating spacious open terraces and irregular, sheltered patios between them. From the street, the residence looks like a traditional construction; the use of roof tiles, wood, natural stone, and the plastered facade with small openings, grants it the regional character that is required by urban planning requirements. From the lake, the house is perceived as composition of rectangular elements with large glass surfaces; a series of typical modernist volumes, stacked in a dynamic configuration.

Kimball Art Center in Park City, Utah by Will Bruder + Partners

Saturday, January 21st, 2012

Article source: Will Bruder + Partners

KAC as Urban Magnet…

Will Bruder + PARTNERS’ design proposal for the reinvented Kimball Art Center creates a community arts pavilion that is scaled to and complementary to its urban context — proportioned to be understood and enjoyed both from the pace of a pedestrian on Main Street or through the perspective of a visitor’s windshield as they arrive in Park City. The Kimball Art Center is conceived as a comfortable building of its place and time that also celebrates the challenge of ‘the new’. It is a home to the possibilities of ‘making and ideas’, as it serves its mission of providing quality arts education, exhibition, and events.

The School of Art and Design at The New York State College of Ceramics by ikon.5 architects

Saturday, January 21st, 2012

Article source: ikon.5 architects

The McGee Art Pavilion is an expansion to the School of Art and Design at the New York State College of Ceramics in Alfred, New York. The Pavilion is designed as a large ceramic vessel for holding art and light. It is set on a plaza between two existing campus buildings on Academic Alley – the main pedestrian thoroughfare on the campus. Its ceramic façade, made of un-glazed terra cotta tubes, is a solar and rain screen. The unglazed terra cotta tubes that make up the screen are expressive of ceramic vessels and art objects being created inside the School of Art and Design.

The Round Tower in Glouchestershire, England by De Matos Ryan

Saturday, January 21st, 2012

Article source: De Matos Ryan

The Round Tower is a Grade II Listed folly, which had been reduced to ruin by years of neglect and fire. Located on the crest of a hill overlooking Siddington Village, the exposed site is visually integral to the setting of this listed structure. As such the design approach maintains the open relationship with the surrounding agricultural landscape by developing a discreet and substantial underground extension to the tower.  This underground extension provides the main open plan living spaces and is lit by both a central open sunken courtyard and a lateral ‘landscape scoop’ concealing the new swimming pool and associated sun terraces from public view.

Villa Rotterdam in The Netherlands by OOZE architects

Saturday, January 21st, 2012

Article source: OOZE architects

Living in a Structure

The project is a redevelopment of a villa located in a green neighborhood of Rotterdam.

The existing villa was composed of an eclectic set of buildings stuck together forming a strange architectural patchwork: An original building from the early 20th century, a first extension built in 1991 mirroring the house and a final touch in 2003 to add 3 rooms and several facilities just before the current owner moved in.

  • Software used: Different usual CAD software for architect but the most important one was used by the contractor and is called “xsteel”. It is a very powerful 3d software which enables you to produce all the production drawings in 3d. Very important for this type of project. The tolerance of construction was very low, 5mm.
