Heritage and Financial Centre Bo Gang in Guang Dong, China by AFR ThinkingUrban

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

Article source: AFR ThinkingUrban

Cliff Dwelling in Austin, Texas by Specht Harpman

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

Article source: Specht Harpman

Suspended on a narrow limestone ridge halfway down a cliff overlooking Lake Austin, this home builds upon the frame of an existing 1970s-era structure. The renovation re-works the processional sequence into and through the house making it habitable for an elderly couple, enhancing engagement with the dramatic site, and incorporating elements that have personal importance to the owners.

Weleda North America by Specht Harpman

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

Article source: Specht Harpman

Specht Harpman designed Weleda’s North American headquarters within the shell of a 19th-century factory along the Hudson River. One primary design intention was to expose and highlight the raw beauty of the original heavy timber structure, its brick walls, and large windows. Our interventions respect the character of the original building, while clearly registering a new use.

West Lake Hills in Texas by Specht Harpman

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

Article source: Specht Harpman

This house positions itself as a backdrop to a spectacular site, with a dense canopy of trees in front and steep ravine in back. Our goal was to preserve all of the site’s large live oaks while creating a sense of transparency that allows the landscape to flow through the living spaces.

Lifeguard Nesselande in Rotterdam, Netherlands by UArchitects

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

Article source: UArchitects

“How does a building looks like which is not used for half a year during the winter? “
During the winter it is closed, but when the sun arrives the building transforms. The arrival of the spring is visible in the building: screens move up, doors slide open and the flags wave into the air. The building reacts on the summer sun.

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

Article source: kister scheithauer gross architekten und stadtplaner GmbH (ksg)

After a preceding VOF procedure in 2011, kister scheithauer gross (ksg) implemented the new ‘Chemiepraktikum’ building for RWTH Aachen. The client is ‘Bau- und Liegenschaftsbetrieb NRW’. The monolithic building functions as a cornerstone of the existing development and is thus decisively contributing to the formation of a ‘prestigious address’ of the Chemical Institute. Laboratory areas of about 1,500 m² have been provided on a gross floor area of 3,720 m². Since April 1, students at the Institutes of Organic and Inorganic Chemistry of RWTH Aachen can now carry out research and experiments at 160 state-of-the-art fume cupboards.
