133 Wai Yip Street in Hong Kong, China by MVRDV

Tuesday, June 14th, 2016

Article source: MVRDV

MVRDV have opened the 133 Wai Yip Street in Hong Kong. An office transformation, with retail and restaurants, which strips an old industrial building down to its bare bones and uses only glass with stainless steel infill to build up the interior spaces. The 18.000m2  project, located on the Kwun Tong waterfront is part of a larger urban development scheme which aims to turn the post-industrial district of East Kowloon into Hong Kong’s new central business district (named CBD2). An entirely see-through office stands as an example to the goals of the project to give ultimate transparency within the workplace. The project was commissioned in 2013 by project developer GAW Capital and now stands as one of the flagship projects for the new business development, becoming the bridge between the neighbourhood’s industrial roots and it’s metropolitan future.

Hotel pupp in Bressanone Bolzano, Italy by Bergmeisterwolf Architekten

Tuesday, June 14th, 2016

Article source: Bergmeisterwolf architekten

The hotel is located at an intersection of the city, an intersection of interior and exterior, tradition and modernism. the features and characteristics of the city were incorporated into the design. the idea was to segment a compact structure floor by floor in order to let enough light in. courtyards of light become an element that is played with. the floors were shifted horizontally, so as to achieve an open and yet compact structure. space is split up into drawers; mirroring the old town’s vertical sectors, here horizontally. the façade is unbroken – solely two windows to the city offer a glimpse of the space on the interior, which is projected outwards, generating public space. the protrusions appear to be oriels, eversions of the façade. light comes in through the courtyards, halls, rooms, and open spaces; well-lit intimacy.

Temasek Club in Singapore by DP Architects

Tuesday, June 14th, 2016

Article source: DP Architects

Sited on the pristine greenery adjacent to Bukit Timah Nature Reserve and spanning 21,000 square metres, the Temasek Club was purposed as a sanctuary for Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) regulars, Full-time National Service and National Service officers to relax within the natural surrounds. DP Architects (DPA) won the design competition held by Temasek Club on the basis of its merits: chiefly, it was the only scheme that sought to conceal the volume of the club buildings by ingeniously tucking the mass within a natural valley in the terrain. The terrain was cleverly employed as a cradle for the built massing; from the main entrance court, the club appears as a single-storey building. Sensitive site-planning ensured that views of the nature reserve remain unspoilt from the main road.

Article source: ARQUITECTURIA

The Museum of Energy is located at the surroundings of Ascó, next to the river Ebro. The museum swings between public and private, between the river and the topography and between the urban grid and landscape. Because of this, one of the aims of the project was to reconfigure the site understanding its BOUNDARY condition.

House T in Tokyo, Japan by Hiroyuki Shinozaki Architects

Monday, June 13th, 2016

Article source: Hiroyuki Shinozaki Architects

This is a residence and atelier for a couple in the center of Tokyo. The building area is small, because of its size and flag shape. It needed to design the house using effectively height direction, so we designed the house as a bookshelf. The floors like bookshelf plates are placed at the different level in the deformed box. And furniture is put on the each shelf-floor to create living room, dining room, kitchen and bedroom. In the big volume, floating life places expand with 360 degree view. Life places are connected each other in and out of shadow varying distance in tree dimension. This means life places are opened planar and cross-sectional, while they are divided. Concerning structural aspect, each shelf-floor is hooked up to the shelf-frame, which composed of columns and beams three-dimensionally. This structure system gives latitude for space composition. And the shelf frame works not only as the structural parts but also as the fixture supporting life places. On one place it is used as handrail or threshold, on the other place it is used as book-shelf or wardrobe. The way of using depends on the situation. Lightings hung from top of the box till the each floors to illuminate them such as a floating stage. The daily life itself is stored on a small residence like big furniture.

Article source: SOMA Architects

New York-based architects SOMA delivered an outstanding private residence located on the north side of Jouneih Bay, Lebanon.

It is a significant milestone for a project whose design plunges into the sea, Calypso hovers over the water like a crystal emerging from the rocks. Nestled on a small strip of rugged rocks between the main road and the sea, the form of the house is derived directly from this ragged landscape.

Article source: v2com

Located in a quiet area of the Eastern Townships in Quebec, the Nook Residence sits in continuity with the landscape in which it is part. Turning its back to the street, it offers a virtually blind facade that encourages discovery and piques curiosity. Strategically located openings and a large gap in the white mass give a hint at the beautiful scenery below as we approach the building.
