Beefeater in London, England by Lee Boyd

Saturday, August 30th, 2014

Article source: Lee Boyd

Lee Boyd has recently collaborated on the exciting new visitor centre for Beefeater Gin at their distillery in central London which now provides visitors an insight into the history of gin and an understanding of the process of gin making.  A bold new extension providing a point of entry to the centre, links the different parts of the distillery and allows visitors to move from the exhibition floor to the stills house without interrupting the day to day workings at Beefeater. Beefeater Gin is the world’s number one premium gin and has been made in the heart of London for over 150 years, the only international brand to have its distillery in the capital. Beefeater is uniquely placed to call itself the Home of Gin and tell the intriguing story of the entwined history of London and Gin.

Location of the house is near Mt. Bizan in Tokushima city. The site is one of five compartmental areas where we can see beautiful view of the mountain toward southeast.We designed the house for client family of four (couple and their children) who newly move to there. We designed the “big wall” which is used for exterior wall and fence. The wall cut the undesirable view of neighboring houses in the other compartment and 8-story building of prefectural condominium.

TRANSFORMATION TOWNHALL BORSELE in Heinkenszand, Netherlands by Atelier Kempe Thill architects

Saturday, August 30th, 2014

Article source: Atelier Kempe Thill architects

The municipality of Borsele in the Dutch province of Zeeland was founded in 1970 by the merging of 13 villages. Heinkenszand was assigned centre of this newly formed administrative unit and a new town hall was built for the 25.000 inhabitants. More then 30 years after the opening, the building was in need of rehabilitation. On the one hand, the façade as well as the roof weren’t fully waterproof anymore. Furthermore, the building had to undergo an asbestos abatement to adapt to modern building standards. On the other hand the interior of the building had to be renovated in order to create a flexible and modern office environment. The building climate had to be improved in order to reduce energy loss.
