Wintergarden Facade in Brisbane, Australia by Studio 505

Saturday, July 28th, 2012

Article source: Studio 505

“The Wintergarden Façade is a radically experiential composition, a complex and beautiful study of nature, geometry and layering that communicates the rich diversity of life”

The brief for the new facades to the three street frontages of the Wintergarden Shopping Centre in central Brisbane required the creative application of a coherent identity and architecturally holistic sensibility in order to realise a multitude of intentions – to create an entertaining and engaging retail experience, a lifestyle destination and a ‘must-go-to’ meeting place and thoroughfare – at the heart of Brisbane’s city centre.

Tongjiang Recycled Brick School in Jianxi Province, China

Saturday, July 28th, 2012

Article source: RUF (Rural Urban Framework)

Tongjiang Primary School is located in Jianxi Province, south-east China. The charity World Vision commissioned Joshua Bolchover and John Lin at The University of Hong Kong, Faculty of Architecture, to design a new school building at no additional cost to a typical school building found in China. These buildings are generic two story buildings with open balconies constructed from reinforced concrete and brick infill. Our aim was to work within these constraints to produce a building that responded to the site context and could create unique spatial experiences for learning and social interaction.

Article source: Philippe GAZEAU Architecte

The BH2 programme is located at the north-east end of the ZAC mixed development zone, in the “Bois Habité” area. It is bounded by the Rue Claude Bernard to the east, and by the Boulevard de Cleunay to the north.

The immediate vicinity:

To the south of the programme there is a recent housing estate made up of small collective housing units of between R+1 and R+3. There is a difference of about one metre between the levels of the existing housing estate and the land.

To the west of the land, the existing sports ground is being kept, and included in the public parkland bordering the operation, and linked to it by footpaths.

Residence on Terrybrae Terrace in Tarzana, California by Edmund M. Einy, FAIA Architect

Saturday, July 28th, 2012

Article source: Edmund M. Einy, FAIA Architect

The spatial experience unfolds as one descends from the entry ramp down into the home, here the view of the street and its noise are diminished and the quite realm of the house pervades.

The program is organized vertically with the public living, dining, kitchen, and the main art gallery spaces on the lower level and the private children’s and parent’s rooms on the upper level. The lower level’s open plan is designed for shifting social activities. The floor is seen as a “field” in which pool, furniture, and objects sit. Large pivoting and sliding glass doors extend the habitable space through to the outside. Horizontal circulation wraps this field and serves as path for the viewing of art displayed on the walls.

Article source: EGB Hornung & Associés

Lili’s Garden was born from the renovation of an old farmhouse built to the end of 18th century in the picturesque area of Dommeldange. There are now eight apartments and two studios that took place there. Our desire was to preserve part of the identity of the building by improving the quality of life of its residents.

BEN : 40 x Residing in Aspern, Austria by SUE Architekten

Friday, July 27th, 2012

Article source: SUE Architekten

The plot,which spans across an area of 150 x 17 x 34m, is situated directly beside the old village green of Aspern; here we have conceived 40 apartments of two different construction types.

In the garden between the two apartment houses facing the street there are 18 town houses, discretely out of sight from the street. To ensure a high degree of residential quality and a sense of spaciousness despite the density of the development (45 %) and the short distance between the buildings compared to their height, the town houses are arranged in a staggered pattern to each other.

iProspect – Fort Worth in TX by VLK Architects

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

Article source: VLK Architects

iProspect is a leading, global digital marketing agency. The existing iProspect office was located in the Historic Fort Worth Stockyards, and respect for that heritage was implemented into their new office space, situated in Fort Worth’s Cultural District. The design intertwines the familiar, historical elements of Fort Worth with the modern, high-tech industry that iProspect serves. The new space, previously a metal fabrication warehouse built in the 1950s, had plenty of existing character including concrete columns with graffiti and a few masonry partitions, which were incorporated into the design.

Riverview Gardens Residence in AUSTIN, TEXAS by Bercy Chen Studio

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

Article source:  Bercy Chen Studio

RIVERVIEW GARDENS IS A SERIES OF 3 IDENTICAL HOUSES LOCATED IN AUSTIN, TEXAS, ONE BLOCK NORTH OF LAKE AUSTIN (NOW LADY BIRD LAKE). THE HOMES WERE INSPIRED BY HAMILTON POOL, A DEEP NATURAL ESCARPMENT WHICH FORMS A DRAMATIC WATERFALL NEAR AUSTIN. IN THE SPIRIT OF THAT WATERFALL, RAINWATER IS DIRECTED TO THE END OF EACH RIVERVIEW GARDEN HOUSE AND FALLS 3 STORIES IN A SHEET TO FORM A DRAMATIC WATERFALL, NOT UNLIKE THE RARIN SCREEN FOUND IN CLASSICAL CHINESE GARDENS. THE RAINWATER IS THEN COLLECTED IN AN 80’ LONG SHARED POND WHICH ON A BREEZY DAY PROVIDES SOME NATURAL COOLING TO THE HOUSES.
