The house is made out of three elongated volumes with symmetrical gable roofs, which are set in a way that creates a dynamic ground floor’s organisation. It accomodates and serves the needs of the modern family and provides the highest level of comfort and quality living.

Zags is a startup company in the field of software technology for insurance companies. We had to create a design that offered both the floor plan flexibility and a more structured organization of spaces. By locating glass partitioned offices at each corner we could take advantage of the floor plan configuration and create the desired variety and compartmentalization that was required by the tenant.

Bamboo Forest on the Roof in Beijing, China by V studio

Article source: V studio

The location of this project is very special — on the roof of a huge shopping mall. Our client wants to build a small building here for recreation and receiving friends. This shopping mall is located in the CBD of the city. Due to its huge size, there are various forms of business in it, including shopping, catering and entertainment, while its consumers are from all classes of the society. It is extremely prosperous and busy here, and it is full of attraction and fun. Our design is inspired by this unique field condition — to create a place which is totally different from the noisy surroundings. The effect we aim to achieve is that, when visitors pass the noisy busy streets and arrive at the roof, they get into a pure space, which is in great contrast with the surrounding spaces.

Casa SN in Bologna, Italy by Elisa Manelli Architect

 
November 24th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Elisa Manelli Architect 

Casa SN is an attic built thanks to the intervention of a total renovation of 1940’s villa in the first hills closed to the center of ​​Bologna – Italy.

The light passes through the many windows both from the walls and the roof and it’s reflected on the white surfaces of furniture and finishes, expanding the space. The bleached wooden floor, the roof panel covered with light gray and ocher veils and the white walls create a box that acts as a passepartout where both custom-made furniture and industrial furnishings are emphasized. The heart of the house is a large open space where the living area and the kitchen, overlooking the dining area, are located. The kitchen, as well as all ad hoc furnishings, has been conceived as a functional and plastic block that adapts to the context. Every fixed furniture – in white opaque – has been crafted artisanally by the carpenter on a specific project made by the architect, going to be embedded in architectural volumes, supporting the slopes of the roof.

Reflects in Cleveland, Ohio by SILO AR+D

Reflects is a winner of an architect-led design build competition for a temporary “treehouse” structure that became a centerpiece of the Cleveland Botanical Garden’s 2015 summer show. The brief called for an innovative treehouse design that reconnected guests of all ages to the outdoors through interactive experiences that reveal the physical, emotional, and developmental benefits of staying engaged with outdoor environments. The chosen site was the Secret Garden, a walled court with no trees surrounded by manicured gardens adjacent to the existing Botanical Garden building. The design emerges from the challenge of imagining treehouse architecture on a tree-less site.

Easton Helsinki, a shopping centre by Lahdelma & Mahlamäki in Itäkeskus, Helsinki, opened its doors to the public today. The 66,000m2 development is the first phase in a larger urban plan and looks to celebrate the identity and culture of Helsinki’s eastern districts. The project idealistically and physically centres itself around food, bringing together local vendors and businesses at the heart of the shopping centre; at the same time introducing in a much more varied commercial programme around this. Whilst become a beacon to those on the motorway, the shopping centre takes a much more calm approach when viewed from the street, with its gently undulating façade of ceramic tiles taking on the local red-brick aesthetic and sitting comfortably within the urban scale.

Casa Central in CABA, Argentina by ESTUDIODAYAN

The ideas that promoted took the aesthetic decisions of this project are related to the intention to reinterpret the uses of the neighbourhood and the aesthetic functional expectations of the owner. Until some decades ago the area where the work was implanted was filled with mechanical workshops, industrial sheds and workshops of heavy and light smithy. Some of them survive the passage of time and are known in the area. The owner, naturally had expressive intentions linked to industrialization, to the idea of “loft” and rationalized construction. This diversity of spices is joined to generate a single unifying concept. What was a concept today is this work: low maintenance, wide and flexible spaces, industrial language but avant- garde composition, die of uses and adaptability of growth, of minimalist and conceptual volumetric , articulated, of used spare parts in automotive mechanics but of architectural innovation, of intentional rusticity and precision sought, of external coldness and interior warmth; and ever changing facade.
