Mixed Use Infill 3 Houses and an Office in Antwerp, Belgium by Collectief Noord Architecten

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Article source: Collectief Noord Architecten

Three pavillions and a house give shape to an urban garden in the city centre. Each pavillion is similar to the other, but differ like brothers do. Concrete garden blocks in the facade sustain the expression of a garden folly and remind us of the attempts of Wright and Sullivan to democratize ornament. On top of each pavillion there is a roof pavillion: a garden in a garden in the city.

Constituyentes Illuminated Facade in Mexico City, Mexico by Taller David Dana Arquitectura

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Article source: Taller David Dana Arquitectura

This Project is located at Constituyentes 1072, one of the main avenues in Mexico City. The architectural approach integrates a front entry plaza that works as a boundary or transition between the building and the street. The office complex integrates 5 levels and has the great advantage of inserting natural day lighting in all four facades. All the floor plans are equal besides the fifth floor which has a frontal cantilever that is being supported with a metal structure of 23 meters of altitude. The main disadvantage of this structural skeleton was that is exposed in an area of high exposure.

In Izabelin Północny near Warsaw, at Białego Orła street, a villa of shingles and gabions was built to a design by Barycz and Saramowicz Architectural Office. This imposing, luxurious residence is contrarily called A Little House in the Forest, with reference to a playful name of the pre-war villa of the great Polish writer, Melchior Wańkowicz, located in Żoliborz in Warsaw (“The Tiny House”), as it is located on a beautiful plot of land, covered with old pine trees.

Lingo Construction Services in Oklahoma City, OK by Elliott + Associates Architects

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Article source: Elliott + Associates Architects

Located in the historic Automobile Alley District of Oklahoma City the design seeks to transform an existing 1930 historic masonry and steel building into a modern office space. The character of the 12,000 sq. ft. two story building, originally built for Sharp Auto Supply Co, had been diminished by thick layers of paint, historically inaccurate additions, and years of misguided design efforts.

The building covers the entire lot. There is 10 feet of additional space on the north end that allowed us to construct a fire stair, mechanical enclosure, and covered outdoor deck. This exterior construction made it possible to leave the interior intact. The open framing is consistent with the exposed studs on the interior that dramatizes the construction behind the walls., Image Courtesy © Scott McDonald, Hedrich Blessing

Fuzhou IT Campus by Latitude Studio

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Article source: Latitude Studio

The aim of a technological campus is to create a complex that works self-sufficiently to achieve a suitable environment for the production, interchange and management of technology. In this case, LATITUDE’s proposal for the IT Campus project was chosen not just because of the functional solution, but for the treatment of the scale both of the whole project and the inner spaces. Moreover, the proposal emphasizes the visual relation between the different areas within the campus.

Spanish Pavilion for Expo 2008 in Zaragoza, Spain by Francisco Mangado

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

Article source: Francisco Mangado

The desire to reproduce the space of a forest, or of a group of bamboos on a layer of water, has formed the subconscious basis of the project. On the one hand there is the creation of a… building mechanism? able to generate extraordinary possibilities from the point of view of energy logic and environmental awareness, an essential and symbolic aspect for the future Spanish Pavilion at the International Exposition of Zaragoza. But on the other hand, and this is very important, one of the most attractive spaces one may encounter, both in terms of matter and light, is transferred to the field of architecture. Changing spaces, full of hints and nuances, in which concepts such as verticality and depth play an essential role.
