Company office building for Immoquatro in Gent, Belgium by BURO II & ARCHI+I

How architecture improves the quality of the daily work

Around 25 staff is working for Accountancy Service in the new office building.
The plot has a level difference across twelve meters: the garden lies approximately 90cm lower than the front garden strip at street level. This natural slope was incorporated into the design for the new office building. It was decided not to use the garden for parking; parking is accommodated below the building. By raising the volume of the new structure marginally from street level, space was created without the need for a deep excavation. This allows all-round daylight to penetrate the car and bicycle parking level and gives the impression that the building is floating.

The parcel forms a right-angled triangle. As if it were a child’s game, its design plays with this shape, on top of the leg that adjoins an eight-storey block (yet unbuilt), the “servant spaces” are concentrated along an elongated section.

Studio for Group DCA in New Delhi, India

Tuesday, October 27th, 2015

Article source: Group DCA

As Delhi continues to expands as a metropolis, the organic settlements that once dotted the surrounding landscape are gradually being subsumed into the city. Existing linkages to suburban nodes are also strengthening as traffic volumes increase and the city’s hugely successful mass transit system spreads into the erstwhile hinterland. This evolving fabric of the city is creating a complex confluence of building typologies, as pioneering entrepreneurs seek out the elusive combination of large flexible spaces and lucrative capital investments. Located just off the main arterial connection to Gurgaon, the DCA office simultaneously inhabits a setting shaped by a plethora of influences, the strongest of which is the dichotomy of adaptive reuse within an old structure and the local context of an indigenous settlement.

Woodland Residences in Austin, TX by Derrington Building Studio

Saturday, October 24th, 2015

Article source: Derrington Building Studio

WDLD_Project Description

Woodland is a small residential community nestled among a grove of large trees in a neighborhood that is just minutes outside of downtown Austin, Texas.  The development started with a simple program of four houses, but quickly became complex through the site’s general conditions and restrictions. Unusual property lines, a steep bluff, and an abundance of old-growth trees squeezed the buildable area for the project. This, in turn, presented privacy and view concerns given the close proximity of each house to the surrounding trees, as well as one other. Along with these issues, permitting violations from a previous owner had to be overcome.

In working with a limited budget and economical materials, we placed extra attention on massing and fenestration. This particular house is 850 square feet of living space and includes two bedrooms and one and half baths. Simplicity of form with dynamic elements and limited use of color creates an impactful form without being overly dramatic. , Image Courtesy © Craig Washburn
