Jardine’s Lookout Flat in Hong Kong by AFFECT-T

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

Article source: AFFECT-T

The brief for our design of the Jardine’s Lookout Flat was for a contemporary apartment with open space and light for an elderly client.  The client wanted something extremely contemporary so she could leave all the detritus from her previously crowded flat behind, she wanted something unique with light natural materials, and something with plenty of storage should she need it.  All of these being a challenge anywhere were uniquely challenging in the climate of Hong Kong with local contractors unaccustomed to complex three dimensional forms a lack of access to high quality materials or longer construction timeframes as in Europe or America.  The challenge of the flat also proved to be its making as it was a blend between high and low-tech that required expertise and craft to deliver much of the difficult forms rather than purely through an architect led process.

Epic Sana Luanda Hotel in Angola by NLA Architect

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

Article source: NLA ArquItectos

The hotel building is an architectural structure designed as a whole, and possessing a unique identity and expression. this is the result of a relationship between the two main buildings: one that defines the hotel’s setting and a second one, a tower, which is mainly made up of the different residential levels. besides the fact that the connecting of the two forms has to do with the function of the hotel itself, it is above all related to a desire to be complementary on the level of the form and the architectural language, as well as a concern to be adequately integrated within the urban landscape made up of the buildings around it.

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Article source: Kengo Kuma & Associates

Location of this Starbucks is somehow characteristic, as it stands on the main approach to the Dazaifu Tenmangu, one of the most major shrines in Japan. Established in 919 A.D., the shrine has been worshiped as “the God for Examination,” and receives about 2 million visitors a year who wish their success. Along the main path to the shrine, there are traditional Japanese buildings in one or two stories. The project aimed to make a structure that harmonizes with such townscape, using a unique system of weaving thin woods diagonally.

Rue Pierre Rebiere in France by Nicolas Laisné & Christophe Rousselle

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Article source: Nicolas Laisné & Christophe Rousselle

The two buildings stand within a narrow stretch of land with a width of twelve meters, in spite of this constrained configuration the design is freeing itself from it through the expression of the volumes offering “an true attic at every level”

Different and complementary, the two buildings have a visual contrapuntal communication, in rhythm with the Rue Rebière

Whilst the first one expresses major horizontal lines towards the public space, the second is inspired by the trunk’s lines and tree’s canopy, embodied by the use of a vertical wooden cladding.
