CASA ZR in San Luis Potosi, México by TaAG Arquitectura

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

Article source: TaAG Arquitectura

The project comes on the first \”closed\” residential subdivision in San Luis Potosi City, with regulations very oppressive and contradictory, where a colonial Mexican style is required (with all complications and possible interpretations of the theme)
The challenge was to get a house with a ‘contemporary’ language despite the regulation that was designed to build houses with the classical typologies of the eighties.

Black on White in Wenzenbach, Germany by Fabi Architekten BDA

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

Article source: Fabi Architekten BDA

A house like an archetype. As a prelude to the castle “Schönberg” (12th century) at the Wehrgraben – site of a former guard house. The house consists of two building volumes – one homogeneous, black saddle roof building lying turned and cantilevered on a white flat roof box. A minimal intrusion into the hillside topography. The volumes open up targeted to the natural space, the forest. The buildings to the sorroundings shine quiet and conciseness– unambiguity.

Southland Christian Church in Lexington, Kentucky by EOP Architects

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

Article source: EOP Architects

A unique client’s vision and openness to abstract symbolism provided EOP Architects the opportunity to transform a long vacant and neglected retail mall into an energized campus with a newfound purpose. Southland Christian Church in Lexington, Kentucky, requested a contemporary, iconic design that would be welcoming, inspirational and transformational but devoid of any traditional references to Christianity: there are no conventional steeples, crosses, or stained glass windows. However, the design response includes a number of abstract interpretations with references to these elements.

ME Hotel opens in London by Foster and Partners

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

Article source: Foster and Partners

The triangular site of the ME Hotel on the corner of Aldwych was once the home of the Gaiety Theatre, which was damaged during the war and demolished to make way for an office development. Completing the grand sweep of buildings that make up the 1920s crescent, the new scheme repairs the urban grain and restores a little lost glamour to the heart of the West End. The project, which is due to open in summer 2012, is the first flagship hotel in which everything, from the shell of the building to the bathroom fittings, has been designed by Foster + Partners – the result is an elegant fusion of interior and exterior design that signals a new contemporary approach for London’s boutique hotels.

Henning Larsen Architects, COBE and SLA have won the international design competition for the European Spallation Source (ESS), in Lund, Sweden. ESS will become the world’s largest and most advanced facility for neutron-based research. The team also includes the engineering comapnies Buro Happold, NNE Pharmaplan and Transsolar.

“Researchers will travel to Lund from every corner of the world. At ESS, they will become part of a global research community. They will require space for concentrated work, but they will also need places where they can meet other researchers”, says Jacob Kurek, Partner and Architect, Henning Larsen Architects. “In the atriums found in the buildings, they will be able to meet each other informally, inspire each other, exchange ideas and share their knowledge.”
