Auditorium of AZ Groeninge in Kortrijk, Belgium by Dehullu Architects

Thursday, October 1st, 2015

Article source: Dehullu Architects

The auditorium is part of a meeting centre that is situated on the site of the general hospital of AZ Groeninge in Kortrijk, Belgium. The hospital itself and all of the infrastructure is designed on a strict cartesian grid. Compared to the hospital the auditorium is only a tiny building, it is located in a corner of the site. It was the intension of the architects to design a building with its own identity, a building on which the cartesian grid was not imposed. It is a hide-out for the staff of the hospital, a place to be away from professional obligations, well integrated in the green surroundings. The building is distinct, has a gracious and optimistic elegance.

SOLO WEST Lobby in Phoenix, Arizona by Ippolito Fleitz Group GmbH

Thursday, October 1st, 2015

Article source: Ippolito Fleitz Group GmbH 

SOLOWEST

This ten-storey office building opened at the beginning of the 1990s as the‘Lahmeyer-Haus’. Like many buildings from that time, the increasingly sophisticated demands of tenants and Frankfurt’soversaturated business real estate market quickly rendered the building no longer competitive. It stood empty for many years until project developer Phoenix Real Estate recognised its attractive position in Frankfurt’s Westend and decided to completely gut and revitalise the building. Since Phoenix itself rents office space in the building for its Frankfurt branch, the brief was simple: “to build the best house in the respective market segment”. Our studio was commissioned to design the entrance lobby and the access and supply coresfor all storeys, as well as interior architecture for two rented offices.

Casas La Punta in Mexico by Grupoarquitectura

Thursday, October 1st, 2015

Article source: Grupoarquitectura

West of Mexico City in nearly one hectare site, the two houses were designed on top of a beautiful canyon with wonderful views. The design is based on two parallel stone finished walls that enclose the house blocking it on the north façade and opening it up to the south with a very light metal frame that integrates the façade along with the garden.

The steel structure that spans a 14 meters width in an orderly rhythm houses the bedrooms and the rest of the living spaces, enclosing the services between the back walls.

Metabolon by pier7 architekten

Thursday, October 1st, 2015

Article source: pier7 architekten

Does an artificial landscape need to be planted and thus, appear to be as close to a natural landscape as possible? No. To the contrary, this project shows awareness of the sites origin. It is a waste dump covered with a black skin that plainly offers plenty of space. The concept has been developed by FSWLA Landscape architects and pier7 architects as a collaborative proposal and the realisation of this highly original cultivation of garbage within the perfect world of Bergisches Land has been completed. Several temporary sites with diverse purposes have come into existence alongside, around and on top of the cone of garbage since. For example: learning places that are flexible for different programs, cafés, seminar- and production sites as well as exhibition venues for prototypic structures and various events more that have not been thought of, yet.
