Care Implant Dentistry in Sydney, Australia by Pedra Silva Architects

Friday, April 17th, 2015
Article source: Pedra Silva Architects

On one of Sydney’s high-end retail streets we were invited to design a high-level state of the art dental clinic. The actual space and the brief provided by the client posed a few challenges that got us thinking. An aesthetic is something that may be mistaken as an additional almost cosmetic layer to a design, but in our projects, the aesthetic is a clear response to problem solving.
In this particular case the client requested two receptions with two entrances that could function separately but without compromising the sense of spaciousness and its relationship with people passing by. In the same space we also had a stubborn structural column that seemed to impose itself in all the attempts of trying to integrate it into the design. The solution? Answering the brief and magically making the column disappear!

Lycée Neslon Mandela Secondary School in Paris, France by Philippe Gazeau

Friday, April 17th, 2015

Article source: Philippe Gazeau

Set on the Etampes plateau with a view as far as the eye can see across the natural landscape and farmland, the new Lycée d’Etampes secondary school is the first building in the built-up Paris area visible from the Beauce plain.
The building stands on the boundary between the two regions and itself has that dual status as a kind of built-up landscape, despite its large scale.

Friday, April 17th, 2015

Article source: CUMULUS STUDIO

The project involved the adaptive reuse of Pumphouse Point into a wilderness retreat. The existing heritage listed, art-deco style buildings – ‘The Pumphouse’ and ‘The Shorehouse’ – were constructed in the 1940s as part of Tasmania’s hydro electric scheme and are positioned within the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. The two buildings had been unused for over twenty years before works began.

LHM kindergarten in Tokyo, Japan by Moriyuki Ochiai Architects Inc.

Friday, April 17th, 2015

Article source: Moriyuki Ochiai Architects Inc.

We designed a playful and exciting environment suitable for implementing this kindergarten’s educational policy, which focuses on bringing up children that can think, learn and act independently. In doing so, we created a space in which seasonal changes can be experienced to the fullest by taking advantage of the glass windows facing a garden outside of the building to usher the great outdoors into the kindergarten.

Anguilla House in Fukuoka, Japan by Shinji Yoshida

Friday, April 17th, 2015

Article source: Shinji Yoshida

This project is a family house for five people. The site is long and narrow like the bed of an eel, and is 20 feet by 60 feet.

The location was initially difficult to maximize sunlight because of the surrounding houses that crowded the site. However, through a series of steps a resolution was achieved. First, three parking spaces were created at the owner’s request.
