An iconic urban landmark, but also a sustainable structure for an evolving shopping experience: the new CENTRO*Arezzo Coop.fi frees itself from the conceptual dictates of the traditional shopping mall and acts as a social and recreation pole that is perfectly integrated with the city. Opened in 1988, the complex has undergone a significant aesthetic and functional redevelopment that has completely changed its identity and its relationship with the surrounding environment.

Chicago-based developer Riverside Investment & Development celebrated the debut of the 150 North Riverside office tower, which opened for business in February, with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony today. Comprising 1.25 million rentable square feet, the building is located in Chicago’s West Loop on one of the most prominent sites in the city, bounded by Randolph and Lake streets at the confluence of the north, south and main branches of the Chicago River. Designed by architecture firm Goettsch Partners (GP), the tower features a very narrow structure at its base in order to fit between seven active Amtrak rail lines to the west and the river to the east. The building’s compact footprint opens up to highly efficient, column-free office floors above and allows for the majority of the two-acre site (more than 75%) to be developed as a landscaped public park, riverside amphitheater and riverwalk.

Home – White line in Almaty, Kazakhstan by nravil architects

Article source: nravil architects

We like to make the house as simple as possible and at the same time interesting. The building is located in a landscape of unique beauty. The main goal was to develop the project without harming the natural landscape. The exterior of the house is conceived, that would look different from different sides and due to this you can enjoy the view of a non-repetitive exterior. Appearance and interior support the same color, emphasizing the severity and unity of the house. Panoramic energy-saving windows from both sides of the house evoke a feeling of complete openness and privacy with nature. The glass has a reflective property from the outside to reflect trees and clouds, so the house merges as much as possible with the surrounding environment. You can go on the balcony in the morning to drink coffee, enjoy a panoramic view of the horizon and fresh air.

Grooming Retreat in Santanyi, Spain by Mariana De Delas and Gartnerfuglen

 
May 28th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Gartnerfuglen 

As the young professional urbanite decided to move back to her hometown to take up the family agricultural legacy, she asked for a space for grooming, contemplation and delicacy. (Located on a remote agricultural estate in southern Mallorca, this structure was the realisation of her dream.) The project focuses on the ritual of self-cleansing, both mental and corporal. Learning from the importance and formality of horse grooming before and after riding it, the project intends to gain back the time devoted to one self that modern times has taken away. The ceremonial procedure begins with the ritual of the equestrian arrival. The horse is stationed and groomed next to the water tank and manger. Next, a peregrination across the raised wooden walkway leads to the ascension through a hatch into the solemn refuge. The elevated sanctuary does not prioritize to shelter from the environment but rather aims to refuge the urbanite from the social order to remind and applause the conditions of her indigenous surroundings. This fragile fortress, keeps you isolated, but also allows a toned down impression of the surroundings. In contrast to the urban daily life of the client, the presence inside the elevated shrine provides no impulses except the internal. Sited at the center of a barley field surrounded by autochthonous bushes and wild olive trees, the structure grants a panoramic view meeting the Mediterranean sea and senses at the horizon the lush island of Cabrera. The minimal space (3×3 meters footprint), functions as a grooming retreat for one person. The structure, made by local timber frames, elevates the cocoon to have exclusive views whilst giving a sense of translucent privacy to the user. Layers of white netting frames are interlaced throughout the interior to grant different opacities for each specific use. The subtle introvertness of the structure encourages the user to take a break from the multitasking contemporary madness, and centre on individual mental and bodily hygiene. With importance on grooming’s meditative (not cosmetic) qualities, the space inspires the user to devote time to the reconnection of the mind to the shell.

Roteta House in Donostia, Spain by peña ganchegui y asociados

The particular attributes offered by the plot shape the house: Its level 3 meters above the street, the astonishing layered rock wall at the bottom of the plot, the beautiful existing palm, and the presence of two car-parks located South and West of the plot. All of them have been, along with the orientation (N-S, following the elongated form of the plot) and the program of needs (a house for a two-children family), determining factors in the Roteta House formalization.
