Jiu Jian Tang in Shanghai, China by Rocco Design Architects Ltd

Sunday, September 4th, 2016

Article source: Rocco Design Architects Ltd

As a luxurious mansion built for 21st Century living, Mandarin Court (Jiu Jang Tang) villas have inherited the spirit of traditional Chinese courtyard residences, which is most vividly expressed in their spatial articulation, interplay of light and spaces, and the subtlety in material usage. Yet, despite the strong cultural resonance, the design of the villas has rejected outright on any revivalist gesture or pastiche symbolism. Instead, an uncompromisingly modern and unpompous approach has been taken to honestly reflect the times where the buildings belong.

Sunday, September 4th, 2016

Article source: v2com

With the Centre d’Art Diane Dufresne, ACDF Architecture has created a new arts centre for the suburban municipality of Repentigny, providing a dynamic core where residents can take in stirring arts and culture without getting on the highway to nearby Montreal. The centre’s architecture, including its siting, massing, circulation and materiality, are instrumental in reinventing the desired community image. It plays with notions of rootedness while gesturing to a vibrant future, instilling a sense of belonging and optimism. Familiar yet distinct, it invites visitors in and encourages long, lingering stays.

House of Komajii in Tokyo, Japan by Kazuyuki Takeda Architects

Sunday, September 4th, 2016

Article source: Kazuyuki Takeda Architects

There is the vacant house which has formed local community. “House of Komajii” in Komagome of Tokyo opened as a place where local people stay in October, 2013. Because originally this vacant house was a dormitory, the space was divided finely. Therefore about half of the building was a storeroom. When I received the request of the design, The client expected that I released the space of the storeroom in the area, and made the structure for “House of Komajii” to become independent, and rotate. (It is run now without almost taking the fee for use by the kindness of the owner.) I plan to break a wall and enlarge the space, and more people can gather in the first floor and convert the second floor to share office as source of profits.

The Manna House in Glassell Park, California by Jeremy Levine Design

Sunday, September 4th, 2016

Article source: Jeremy Levine Design

The Manna House is for a client who has unusual obsession with color. My initial concept was to use a camouflage palette to blend the house into the hillside. My client wanted the anti-camouflage house. The house takes its inspiration from the abstract color field paintings of Kenneth Noland and Josef Albers. Various shades of blue connect the house -sited on the ridge of a hill- to the the sky that serve as its backdrop. Blue is also a reference to how the house “sails” along the top of the hill like a ship.
