VITORIA-GASTEIZ CITY COUNCIL OFFICES in Bilbao, Spain by IDOM

Saturday, April 9th, 2016

Article source: IDOM 

One of the matters that most damages the perception that the citizens have of the local administration is the penitential itinerary, which forces them to go from one office to another in order for them to fulfil their obligations with the different municipal departments. This is exactly what the Vitoria-Gasteiz Council wanted to do away with by concentrating all the services that deal with citizens’ affair in one single building.

Citylights in France, Paris by Dominique Perrault Architecture

Saturday, April 9th, 2016

Article source: Dominique Perrault Architecture 

The Pont de Sèvres Towers, renamed Citylights following a complete re-structuring, were built in 1975 by architects Badani and Roux-Dorlut. Bearing witness to the era’s architectural modernity, they stood high and dense in the midst of a barren urban territory. The re-structuring turned this sense of “isolation” into an asset, on a socio-economic as well as an urban level. The project we conducted is a renovation, re-structuring and an unveiling of the towers’ self-evident resources.

KAA Restaurant in São Paulo, Brazil by Studio Arthur Casas

Saturday, April 9th, 2016

Article source: Studio Arthur Casas

São Paulo is a City that reveals itself behind the walls which makes some places amazing and special.

The discrete facade of the newest restaurant KAA gives no hint of what may prove to be internally. Inside, the narrow space of 798 m2 gets a new depth through the Green verical wall with plants from the Atlantic forest. The water mirror on the botton of the tropical green wall refers to “Igarapés”, that were so common before as well as nowadays in that region.

Loft renovation in Oslo, Norway by Austigard Arkitektur AS

Saturday, April 9th, 2016

Article source: Austigard Arkitektur AS 

The architect was approached by the client with the request of converting the existing loft from uninsulated storage to living spaces. Due to the low ceiling height at about 2.1 at the maximum, the client suggested the roof be completely rebuilt in a position about one meter higher. This original plan would have doubled the building budget and most probably have been rejected by building authorities due to height restrictions. Instead the architect suggested keeping the roof in the same position, and instead work with the space so that it would be usable and feel spacious, even with the limited ceiling height.
