Valley in Amsterdam, The Netherlands by MVRDV

Thursday, September 28th, 2017

Article source: MVRDV 

In twenty years, the Zuidas area of Amsterdam has developed into the Netherlands main international business centre, which resulted in a reduced focus on residential interests. The development of Valley is part of the city’s ambition to correct this by transforming the area into a more liveable and complete urban quarter, welcoming large amounts of residents and additional public facilities to the area over the next decade.

Phoenix Real Estate Office in Frankfurt, Germany by Ippolito Fleitz Group GmbH

Thursday, September 28th, 2017

Article source:  Ippolito Fleitz Group GmbH 

SOLOWEST

This ten-storey office building opened at the beginning of the 1990s as the ‘Lahmeyer-Haus’. Like many buildings from that time, the increasingly sophisticated demands of tenants and Frankfurt’s oversaturated business real estate market quickly rendered the building no longer competitive. It stood empty for many years until project developer Phoenix Real Estate recognised its attractive position in Frankfurt’s Westend and decided to completely gut and revitalise the building. Since Phoenix itself rents office space in the building for its Frankfurt branch, the brief was simple: “to build the best house in the respective market segment”. Our studio was commissioned to design the entrance lobby and the access and supply cores for all storeys, as well as interior architecture for two rented offices.

The object is in an apartment house placed in the downtown of Kyiv. The project objective was to convert untenantable upper floor space to a loft. Work on heat insulation required dismount of peripheral brick partitions and boarded ceiling. Original arc roofing structure that appeared underneath was left open in the interior space for several purposes. It was used to mount new partitions and as a basis of new elementsextending current interior space and providing more comfortable ways to the newly createdaccessible roof area. Roof arc structures also allowed separationof different functional zones in the interior.

House on Krokholmen in Värmdö, Sweden by Tham & Videgård

Tuesday, September 26th, 2017

Article source: Tham & Videgård

The site is a promontory on the relatively small island of Krokholmen in Stockholm’s outer archipelago: a typical archipelago landscape with windswept dwarf pines and soft mountain outcrops produced by the inland ice. The plot benefits from open views, in the east all the way out to the lighthouse Almagrundet in the open sea, and it is at times exposed to strong winds. The family wanted a maintenance-free vacation home in one level with social space both inside and outside.

HLM House in Sul, Brazil by Boa Arquitetura

Tuesday, September 26th, 2017

Article source: Boa Arquitetura

The HLM House emerges from a client’s request to build a retreat on a natural area in the outskirts of the city of Santa Maria, in the southern state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. The idea was to provide a place where one coul find himself in deep contact with the landscape, near enough from the city so working was still possible. From the begining, the challenge found was how to build something that could rise in the landscape as if it had always belonged to the place.
