Nobis Hotel in Stockholm, Sweden by Claesson Koivisto Rune Architects

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

Article source: Claesson Koivisto Rune Architects

Towards the end of the 19th century, every self-respecting city erected what it considered to be its biggest and best hotel. It was usually named Grand Hotel and was more often than not paid for out of the private pockets of wealthy barons. These hotels are often still in use today and have a charm that maybe only a century-old ideal of quality can give.

Health Center CAP La Garriga in Barcelona, Spain by Roldán + Berengué, arqts.

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

Article source: Roldán + Berengué, arqts.

Typologically Cap La Garriga is exceptional for the size of the parcel, for the topographical conditions and for its position in the corner of a park.

The building, which actually has five levels of height, but appears to be a two-storey building if perceived from St. Francis Street, and from the park like a one level building with a three level curtain wall background. This is accomplished by making the building grow downwards through a system of patios, so that 60% of the program is located bellow ground.

Olisur Olive Oil Factory and Offices in VI Región, Chile by Guillermo Hevia Architects

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

Article source: Guillermo Hevia Architects

A volume of simple and emphatic architecture, which reinterprets the anonymous architecture of the coastal valleys in the center of Chile.  It poses itself above the soft tree-lined areas, peeking gently with its facades of wood and tones that highlight the luminosity of the place.  The body melts down as one with the geography and projects the lines of trees upon his facades.  Employs sustainable technologies, creating a favorable mood for work and the production of quality olive oil.

Metal is visible, in the sculptures In cuts, bends, welds and paints scissors, brushes, crayon, gas and fire characters in a blend of home and workshop.
