MOURNING HOUSE in Bosques de las Lomas, Mexico City by Pascal Arquitectos

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

Article source: Pascal Arquitectos

This is a project with very strong emotional implications. We had to understand the mood of the user, who at such this moment would not care very much for an aesthetical analysis of any place, but at the same time we wanted to create a space that can create a spritual mood, for this we referred to ancient buildings that were designed for this purpose, as the Egiptian “Mastabas” or some Mayan buildings in Palenque.

New Weiach Kindergarten Development in Weiach, Switzerland by L3P Architekten

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

Article source: L3P Architekten

Diverse operational and economic considerations led to the development of a new kindergarten on the north side of the already existing primary school in Weiach. The new development was realised from pre-fabricated wooden elements. A child-friendly, delicate façade made from artificial lawn naturally moulds into the colour tones of straw gold, red kraut and olive green in the rural village centre and stimulates playful dialogue.

Residential building DMT in St. Florian, Upper Austria by [tp3] architekten

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

Article source: [tp3] architekten

The new residential house has been built on the basement of the old one and is now accessible through a generous staircase.
The basic idea for this single-story residence follows the analogy of an old Roman atrium, however, in this case the courtyard opens up towards the terrace and expands to the garden. Through this opening arise not only different view relationships but also various zones from private to semi-public.

Bolidt headquarters transformed into international, dynamic working environment in Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht, Netherlands by Bolidt

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

Article source: Bolidt

After fifty years of business, during which time Bolidt’s focus has shifted from the domestic market to a more international orientation, the demands on its headquarters in Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht have outgrown the traditional office concept. Flexibility, interaction, 24-hour availability and effective, targeted communication are more important than fixed workspaces. Last year, RoosRos Architects, the firm that was responsible for the original design of the headquarter building back in 1994, produced the design for an extensive conversion of the building into a contemporary, dynamic office environment. The transformation of Bolidt’s headquarters has resulted in a stylish, creative home base where employees and business relations from around the world can meet and be inspired.

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

Article source: Jannina Cabal & Arquitectos

General Parameters 

Oriented from north to south, Integral Iluminación Commercial Building, developed in two diamond-shaped plots with a total building area of 12,701 square feet. One of the requirements of the project was to keep the exterior structure of the existing house (columns, walls and pitched roof) in one of the plots while a new structure proposed for the expansion of the building on the second plot. Considering that Integral Iluminacion sells top of the line lighting and automatization systems, it was extremely important to conceive a cutting edge architectural design that would become an icon for the company.
