The HUB Performance and Exhibition Center in Shanghai, China by Neri&Hu Design and Research Office

Sunday, September 17th, 2017

Article source: Neri&Hu Design and Research Office

The ongoing events and visitors that inhabit this urban oasis, together with the designed spatial elements, bring a transformative and invigorating life to a neighborhood in the making. As Shanghai expands, the Hongqiao District has become its new vibrant neighborhood because of the concentration of Hongqiao Railway and Subway Station, Hongqiao Airport, the new Convention Center and the CBD. The developer Shui On Land, the mastermind behind the Xintiandi development introduced the HUB mixed-use development in the heart of this new district. The highlight of this complex is the Performance and Exhibition Center that is envisioned as the “hot spot” of culture and arts of the new neighborhood.

Palm Beach Project in Sydney, Australia by Alexander&Co

Sunday, September 17th, 2017

Article source: Alexander&Co

Palm Beach House project is the transformation of an existing waterfront holiday villa in Palm Beach, Sydney. The project is a restrained approach to a traditional European vernacular, exploring bespoke quality detailing, materiality and architectural framing.

With the existing house ineffectively dealing with scale limitations, the brief was primarily to explore how we could reintroduce a higher quality of spatial resolution. The plans and volumes were subsequently rationalized around better circulation, view corridors and access to the water.

Milán 44 ReUrbano in Colonia Juárez, Mexico City by Francisco Pardo Arquitecto + Amezcua

Friday, September 15th, 2017

Article source: Francisco Pardo Arquitecto + Amezcua

Designed by Francisco Pardo Arquitecto, in collaboration with architect Julio Amezcua, Milán 44 is an urban-regeneration project located in Colonia Juarez, Mexico City. The project transforms an old four-storey warehouse that was originally home to an auto-parts store into an urban market that reactivates a neighborhood, which connects two entirely contrasting areas. On one side, the booming business district that lines the emblematic Paseo de la Reforma, and on the other side, the lively epicenter of hipster subculture, Colonia Roma Norte. This area, which has been in decay since the 1985 earthquake, is currently experiencing a slow gentrification process. Centrally located and rich in history, it has been equipped with new infrastructure and now holds the genetic code for the city’s future development.

House Embracing Sky in Seoul, Korea by ArchiWorkshop

Friday, September 15th, 2017

Article source: ArchiWorkshop 

“House Embracing Sky” is the second residential project by Archiworkshop in MangWoo district in Seoul.

It was built on a site, which has land area of 108.9. The border of the site was invading to and by its neighbors’ building, and the road for construction was not completely secured. Allowing building coverage ratio of the site 50%, there was only 56m2 to build. We had a thorough consideration on various issues, such as maximizing building coverage ratio, minimizing any problem with neighbors and their lands, rational application of architectural slant line restriction for daylight, etc. Due to building code, inclined facade was formed. The inclined facade has issues of getting polluted due to dust storm and air pollution. At the beginning, we tried to hide this slope but then we switch our thought and developed to an idea ‘what if this can be well appeared in different way?’. The inclined facade turned into a mirror Facade, which embraces sky and capture a change of the scenery while the mirror mass is unrecognizable and disappears. The rough surface of black brick facade and smooth mirror facade gives a great contrast. The shaded portion of the black mirror captures the sky and such reflection can been seen by publics on the ground floor. The mass with one side slash might have been the biggest concern at the beginning, but it became the signature of the building.

Eira House in Vale de Cambra, Portugal by AR Studio Architects

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

Article source: AR Studio Architects 

Located in the city of Vale de Cambra, the Casa da Eira (literally “The House of the threshing-floor”) was a rehabilitation challenge with about 400m2 of construction.

A century-old house that was very degraded and needed a major overhaul, that would revive the memory of the original design without forgetting the current needs. The owner wanted a residence where he could have a traditional and familiar setting, not forgetting its irreverent and creative side. A place where friends are always welcome.
