Iponweb company office in Moscow, Russia by Za Bor Architects

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

Article source: Za Bor Architects

As it happened, a central place in the portfolio of the architectural workshop za bor is occupied by the offices of companies working in the sphere of information technologies.

First of all it is related to the quite informal and creative atmosphere which such companies try to create for their employees. However the IT company Iponweb office, although in general it corresponds to this tendency, stands out due to both its unique architectural space and neutral colour grade which no office project by the architectural workshop za bor has ever had before.

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

Article source: Maxwan architects + urbanists

Our goal for this project is simply the creation of a timeless park that has great value for centuries to come. This is an informal and dynamic park that can adopt future trends and changes of use. We deny a formal, static, trendy and ’wow!’ oriented park that only relates to current circumstances and stays ‘hip’ for a short while.

Walking around the area, Jaeger found the spot and started working on obtaining the building. After negotiating and learning the family histories from the owners, the two sisters that were born and raised in the house, set two conditions: the building architecture should be kept as it was, and the jaboticaba tree (typical Brazilian fruit) had to be kept.

DIAMOND CITY in Adelaide, Australia by Tom Wiscombe Design

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

Article source:  Tom Wiscombe Design

We propose an interior city existing inside a mysterious diamond-like object. The approach stands in opposition to conventional master planning, where a set of reductive instructions such as building use, open space, and setbacks inherently undermine any tendency towards massively dense or monolithic forms. This building is not a map of history, a reified system of flows, or an evolutionary diagram.
