Article source: Ninetynine

Commissioned by Amsterdam developer and investor Millten, Ninetynine designed the new head office of VICE Media Benelux. VICE Media is one of the fastest growing young media brands worldwide. The new offices are located in a former bank building on the Reguliersdwarsstraat in Amsterdam and will accommodate over 50 employees.

The basement and ground floor of the four-storey building have been developed as general spaces including the reception, boardroom, chill-out, play-room and a studio which can be closed off from the rest of the space with a glass garage door. These areas have been opened up completely to create optimal transparency.

Brick Neighbourhood in Ljubljana, Slovenia by dekleva gregoric arhitekti

Wednesday, March 18th, 2015

Article source: dekleva gregoric arhitekti 

How to establish a clear spatial, material and social identity of the neighbourhood? This question was the basic principle when developing the design of objects and their surroundings in terms of deeper connection of future residents with their living environment.

The concept of the 3D erosion is resulting from the critique of the existing master plan with generic volumes in terms of size and height and their arbitrary position. This concept of sub-structuring of the volume is further reflected in the material expression: the initial envelope is defined with the brick layer and the cut-outs with balconies in render.

SPORTS FACILITY IN THE ISLAND OF LA CARTUJA by Cayuela Marqués Architects

Wednesday, March 18th, 2015

Article source: Cayuela Marqués Architects

The project is a supporting building for expanding sports facilities located in Island of Cartuja. The new facility, designed to accommodate new changing rooms, gym, cafeteria, restaurant and social club, aims to organize and characterize the whole complex, as a hinge element between the different programs of the complex. The result is an elongated prism from which a body emerges pointing to the Olympic Stadium and rugby fields, generating an enclosed garden that provides orientation. This space, that the cafeteria and the gym overlook on the ground floor, is destined to become a social scene, a meeting point for athletes and visitors.

Singapore Stock Exchange (SGX) by ONG&ONG Group

Wednesday, March 18th, 2015

Article source: ONG&ONG Group

The Singapore Stock Exchange (SGX) is widely perceived as a growing gateway to the global market place, and an institution that upholds the strictest standards of transparency. When designing the new SGX, insights from staff and customer alike made the design team realise that this traditional institution is undergoing a rapid transformation; this called for entirely new design concepts that facilitated new ways of relationship building, working and approaching technology.

DOTS in Hanoi, Vietnam by group8asia

Wednesday, March 18th, 2015

Article source: group8asia

With a limited budget, the goal of this project is to create a pavilion with a capacity of 1’700 employees working on the Fsoft C4 building in Hanoi, Vietnam.

Located in the park in front of the main office building, the pavilion disappears into the landscape. The drawn profile of the building blends into the vegetation of the surrounding park. Mingling with trees, it seems that the users lose the perception of its limits. The transparency of the façade makes the place an open interior space with no breaks nor visual barriers. In order to break the scale, create islets of vegetation and ensure natural ventilation, the patios are integrated inside the pavilion.
