Making the invisible visible

While most sewage treatment plants are invisible to their communities and separated by a chain link fence, the LOTT Clean Water Alliance Regional Service Center is a visible and active participant in the public life of Washington’s capital city. The LOTT Clean Water Alliance provides Class A reclaimed water and emphasizes water conservation through a strong community outreach program, in addition to providing wastewater treatment services to 85,000 people in four local communities. The new facility, located on the site of its existing Budd Inlet Treatment Plant, brings all management and staff together in one location. The facility includes three major elements:

-a renovated 7,700 ft2 water quality laboratory

-a new 21,300 ft2 office

-a 3,500 ft2 education and technology center

Ikibana Paral Restaurant in Barcelona, Spain by El Equipo Creativo

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

Article source: El Equipo Creativo

The Ikibana restaurant offers a fusion of Japanese and Brazilian gastronomies, two cultures that seem so antagonistic: quiet and minimalist the first, exuberant and bustling the second. One of the biggest conceptual challenges during the design of the restaurant was finding shared singularities between these two cultures. Being a great challenge, it also became the leitmotif of the project, as we discovered that the landscape was an extremely important element in both cultures, and we decided to extol this element in the design of the space and create an artificial landscape.

Las Acacias in Huixquilucan, Mexico by GOO ARQUITECTOS

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

Article source: GOO ARQUITECTOS

Las Acacias is a project located outside of Mexico City. The idea came from a place to enjoy a weekend break with family or friends where they could pursue other activities of recreation. With the idea that the use of the house would not have the same dynamic of a house in the city, we intent to take advantage of the outdoor space to the fullest, leaving the space covered as small as possible. Thus the relationship between interior and exterior space becomes a crucial issue.
