Green Dunes in Dongcheng, Beijing by Girimun Architects

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

Article source: Girimun Architects

This master plan project located in the Dongcheng District transforms the existing 16.5 ha site into a sustainable high density mixed-used urban park. A one-of-a-kind multi-level pedestrian link cuts through a typical Beijing block linking two major roads, metro and train stations. Office and SOHO towers, hotels, services apartments, and exclusive luxury residential towers emerge from a dune-like topography where shopping and cultural activities weave into a series of plazas, event spaces and sunken gardens.

Daycare Nursery and collective housing in Paris, France by Margot-Duclot

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

Article source: Daycare Nursery and collective housing

The founding act of the project begins with the landscape.  It is rare in Paris to be able to take advantage of panoramic views without vis-à-vis.  Yet here the site overlooks two distant landscapes:  the city and the suburbs.

Casa C in Milan, Italy by Francesco Librizzi Studio

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

Article source: Francesco Librizzi Studio

A very small apartment within a very “Milanese” building dated 1900. Two rooms plus a bath room, characterized by a narrow footprint compared to the quite high ceiling. Windows, doors, and above all the floor tiles, had finishes and materials survived to another century: something precious to save as a resource for the new inhabitants of this space.

Shangri-La in Sydney, New South Wales by Remote Controlled Lighting 

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

Article source: Remote Controlled Lighting 

The Director DR8 MK2, RCL’s next generation remote controlled luminaire, features a compact design that is ideally suited to the ceiling troughs of the Grand Ballroom. Special snoots fitted to the luminaires help to reduce glare and direct the light. Both the DR7 and DR8 spotlights can be focused wireless using a simple handheld remote controller from floor level, bypassing the need for mechanical lifts or long ladders. This reduces set up time and avoids the costs and dangers typically associated with manual adjustment.

Spectator Group’s Headquarters Office Building in Zagreb, Croatia by Studio Up

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

Article source: Studio Up

Introductory Notes – this project’s task was transforming an existing project (reconstruction of a building accidentally found on a lot) for the Spectator Group’s Headquarters. When the project began, a building site was opened and excavation and construction pit protection works commenced, what defined the project’s character from the start. The previously designed reinforced-concrete frame system was kept, while the modifications within the construction system are tied to the staircase’s cores. The idea/work methodology was to essentially keep the constructive element’s state of design while keeping the construction interventions to a minimum.
