Variation Guggenheim 3 in Alicante, Spain by Joaquín Alvado Bañón

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

Article source: Joaquín Alvado Bañón

After the collapsed of one of the six-headed palm tree in the center of town in Daya Vieja, Spain, we have designed “El Mirador de la Palmera” with the excuse of a structural support for the tree.

We wanted to connect the town center with the orchards in the surroundings to show the visitors the change of landscape atmospheres along the different seasons. We have created a lookout tower with a spiraling promenade that culminates in a spectacular narrow overpass that juts out and over a major town thoroughfare. El Mirador de la Palmera offers stunning views of the Vega Baja, Rojales and La Marina.

Hotel Topazz in Vienna, Austria by BWM Architekten und Partner

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

Article source: BWM Architekten und Partner

The Vienna-based architecture firm BWM Architekten und Partner and Michael Manzenreiter have created a hotel on a 153m2 corner plot near Hoher Markt Square – a hotel that draws attention to itself while at the same time enhancing the historical fabric of the city centre with its originality. Hotel Topazz opened its doors in April 2012.

The building draws its height reference from the long row of buildings on Hoher Markt Square and leads its upper border via a distinctive rounded corner into Kramergasse. In this way, it shows its reverence for the previous building, whose facade was also characterised by a bold, rounded projection.

Raymond Guidacci White House in Foggia, Italy by Raimondo Guidacci Architetto

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

Article source: Raimondo Guidacci Architetto

The project for this small detached house at Orsara di Puglia, is the outcome of a close collaboration between client and architect (lengthy discussion between brothers, to be precise). It is a very simple volume: a white cube measuring 10 meters on each side, excavated, squared, geometrical, apparently abstract, but actually similar to many buildings in the countryside of Foggia. A simple elementary volume, in contrast to the complex and highly articulated surrounding houses.

Issem Headquarters in Santa Catarina, Brazil by N8Studio

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

Article source: N8Studio

Man’s well being is obtained through his experiences, relationships and the natural and built environment’s influence. In his daily routine or in a sporadic visit the user/worker must feel comfortable in the space that surrounds him.
The new ISSEM Headquarters is not envisioned as a building in its common sense, but as functional spaces that connect to the natural environment, that places man at the center of nature and allows him to perceive that life quality is intimately connected to the occupied spaces, the connection between interior and exterior, in the act of feeling part of something greater. Integration and communication are the headquarter’s base concepts – integrating man and nature, workers and users, interior and exterior – achieving true sustainability.

Residential Center Cugat Natura in Barcelona, Spain by JF Arquitectes

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

Article source: JF Arquitectes

The Residential Cugat Natura Center is located in one of the most peaceful and exclusive zones of the city of Sant Cugat del Vallès (Barcelona), enjoying one of the most privileged views of the Golf Club of the locality and a directly access to the city center.

One important aspect of this kind of project is trying to understand which kind of users will use this center, and the needs that they have. In this residential center we can clearly differentiate between two different users; on one hand, those who haven’t got any degree of dependence, and that would like to have in their common lives the facilities that a residential center offers them, and on the other hand, people with a low-medium-high degree of dependence who need to be looked after and handled by professionals.

Park House in Brisbane, Australia by Shaun Lockyer Architects

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

Article source: Shaun Lockyer Architects

The Park House is a dramatic alteration and addition to what was originally a speculative ‘cookie cutter’ style house in a larger development (but in a fantastic park-side location in inner city Brisbane).

The house explores the reprogramming of two key areas, primarily associated with living and lifestyle. The first and foremost altered area is the kitchen / living / dining which has been redesigned to optimise the indoor / outdoor living experience.

Re-thinking SuZhou Creek in Shanghai, China by ohm architekti

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

Article source: ohm architekti

[0] Prologue

Men distort and bend reality in order to maintain their face. Enhancing our image places us higher on imaginary scale of public opinion. Monotone grayness is covered by fancy facade, pretending to be special, but still empty on the inside. Monoculture fields of unified hi-rise offer forced equality to everyone.

It is in the human nature to shape their surroundings. We adapt it to suit our needs, to identify. But we can also ADOPT the surrounding as it is, give it a new meaning. We create a temporal city, one that changes in time and space. Let’s use empty capacity, and offer it for inhabitation. The city is a result of our will. Do not be afraid to use it as it was never intended to be used.
