Remodelling of Riera la Salut in Barcelona, Spain by Pol Femenias Arquitectes

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

Article source: Pol Femenias Arquitectes

The intervention takes place in the middle of one of the densest neighborhoods in SantFeliu de Llobregat, near Barcelona. A working-class neighborhood, grown around the old textile factories, wall to wall, with humble dwellings of the workers themselves. The demolition of one of the last factories still standing was used to build underground parking to supply the district of La Salut , leaving in the place where the factory was a large gap in the form of concrete cover for this parking.

AUCKLAND ZOO in New Zealand by Monk Mackenzie with Glamuzina Patterson

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

Article source: Monk Mackenzie with Glamuzina Patterson

Due to expanding giraffe numbers the Auckland Zoo needed a new a giraffe breeding shelter; essentially a functional oversized shed with two dens and a keeper area.

The design team responded to the brief by proposing a shelter that assumed an understated external appearance, whose mass was playfully broken down with intersecting roof forms that articulated the junction between the two dens whilst accentuating the collision of human and giraffe scales.

WEIN HOUSE in Buenos Aires, Argentina by BESONIAS ALMEIDA arquitectos

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

Article source: BESONIAS ALMEIDA arquitectos

The place

Costa Esmeralda is a real estate development over the dunes on the coast, 390 km from Buenos Aires. This is a recent urban development with young acacias and pines forestation and some sectors of consolidated forest.

The lot to intervene is a high rise dune with the peculiarity of having in part aged woods and also a recent pine plantation, although undoubtedly its most prominent feature is the abruptness of its relief. Between the access road and the highest sector of the lot, located approx. in the plot center, there is a height difference of 12 m, so that in order to access to it is necessary to ascend a slope of more than 45 °.

Grupo ITISA in Mexico by usoarquitectura

Article source: usoarquitectura

An office space doesn’t have to be all the same and may have different environments, because the activities that occur in each one are different. The project developed for ITISA Group corporate offices —a company dedicated to manufacture precast concrete products for construction with 60 years of history in Mexico— was done under this concept.

Article source: Turenscape 

Beginning in 2006, a new urban district, Qunli New Town, in the size of 2733 Hectares, was planned to be developed at the east outskirt of Haerbin City of North China. 32 million square meters of buildings will be constructed in 13-15 years. More than one third of a million population are expected to live here. While only about 16.4% of the developed land was zoned as permeable green space, the majority of the former flat plain will be covered with impermeable concrete. While the annual rainfall of this area is 567mm and concentrated in June through August (account for 60-70% of annual precipitation). Flood and water log were frequent in history for this area.

Green Water Sports Station in Upper Silesia, Poland by KUCZIA architect

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

Article source: KUCZIA architect

Like a traditional polish farm, the GREEN WATER SPORTS STATION blends into the rural landscape of the shores of Lake Laka in Upper Silesia (Poland).

Three main buildings of the complex – situated orthogonal to each other – define a public place. This place comes into being on the same way like it occurs in the typical polish manor between the cottage, stable and barn. And analogical to them, every building of the Station has a different function: the boat hangar in the east, the central visitors building on the waterfront and the restrooms with showers westward.
