La Boutique in New York City by EOA/Elmslie Osler Architect

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014

Article source: EOA/Elmslie Osler Architect 

The new offices of the Paris based digital photo retouching studio B’Pong were designed to help launch their presence in New York City. The entry space and central conference area are wrapped in stacked homasote, to create a sense of mass and weight, a counterpoint to the light coming from skylights above. The workspace beyond is accessed through a door in the mass and reveals glowing workstations. These are encased in corrugated resin and perforated metal screen, creating a moiré effect around the desks.

Cruise Ship Terminal in the Port in Seville, Spain by ARQUITECTOS HOMBRE DE PIEDRA & buró4

Monday, April 28th, 2014

Article source: ARQUITECTOS HOMBRE DE PIEDRA & buró4

The Port of Seville needed a new Cruise Ship Terminal with a flexible character, multipurpose, extendable, easily removable and even movable. This would permit to accomodate the unpredictable number of passengers in the port and it would not limit the possibilities of the urban-port valuable space of the Muelle de las Delicias. Re-using shipping containers was proposed. On the other hand, the place, near the historic centre, was claiming an object of architectural quality to dialogue with its urban environment.

Alcoutins House in Lisboa, Portugal by Guedes Cruz Architects

Friday, April 25th, 2014

Article source: Guedes Cruz Architects 

The site is the plane where our projects become architecture.

It is on this that we build and what we see are the apparent forms, those which appear above this plane.

In the Alcoutins House the real form is that which has as a support a plane which is 3.5 metres below ground level. It is like a lake, where the volumes float or rest on the base, where we see only the part that appears above the waterline.
