Min Hwi Jeong in Ulsan, South Korea by On Architecture INC

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

Article source: MasilWIDE

This is a project looking for another architectural alternative to the housing market located in the innovative cities that are currently being developed.

The building site that is located in the Innovation City is located in the T intersection. The location of shopping mall is good, but for the location of the house is unsecure of the privacy. To solve this problem, we use the cube block as a screen device on the residential sector. As a commercial building, at night, it had an unique lighting feeling and gaining awareness became an advantage. Also, it’s located about 15m lower side of the road and the opposite side has an advantage of the view of urban landscapes and mountains. Considering this surroundings, at the 1st floor was external court and the entire floor was glass mass to give an enjoyment to the users. But, the biggest problem is that if the street block is form as a commercial type house only, then the 2nd floor and 3rd floor has a problem of lighting. A house should to be bright and naturally ventilated to maintain comfort. To secure the privacy of 1st to 3rd floor to the south, we formed a cube block as a screen device and on 3rd floor, we made sky garden in external court for the lighting and natural ventilation. Especially, on 3rd floor, between 2 external court can be a living room, dining room, or home bar and by placing a wall in kitchen, it can be an independent space or one space. Also, in this multi-purpose space, we installed a folding door around the external court to make as a another one space. The kitchen is the center space when the owner of third floor generation comes. The kitchen communicates with the sky garden, multi-purpose space, and living room. The attic separates the 2 areas into 2 spaces and make as a connecting passages. This connecting passage connects the attic with the bridge between the external court and the external deck and connects with the sky garden too. Through the center of the sky garden, various spatial program can be form and hopefully there will be new ways of communicating amongst family members too.

‘CONSORCIO’ Branch Concepcion in Chile by Enrique Browne & Asociados Arquitectos

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

Article source: Enrique Browne & Asociados Arquitectos 

The rainy city of Concepción, is located in the mouth of the Bío-Bío River, 520 Km south of Santiago. It has aprox. 220.000 inhabitants, but its threshold spans reaches some 630.000 people. The highlights of its economy are the elaboration of steel and the wood industry, both on wide exporting booms. We were asked to design a branch of the ‘Consorcio Nacional de Seguros’, National Insurance Consortium, in a corner site, in front of the only historic and antique church in Concepción, whose façade had been unfortunately reconstructed after an earthquake. Furthermore, it had a front fenced square that impoverished its quality and public character.

Dupli Casa in Near Ludwigsburg, Germany by J. MAYER H. und Partner, Architekten

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

Article source: J. MAYER H. und Partner, Architekten

The geometry of the building is based on the footprint of the house that previously was located on the site. Originally built in 1984 and with many extensions and modifications since then, the new building echoes the „family archaeology“ by duplication and rotation. Lifted up, it creates a semi-public space on ground level between two layers of discretion. The skin of the villa performs a sophisticated connection between inside and outside and offers spectacular views onto the old town of Marbach and the German national literature archive on the other side of the Neckar valley.

JS Corporation’s Company Building in Gangnam, South Korea by Y Group

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

Article source: masilwide

We wanted to express the facade of the building based on the image of the respectable midsize company. The square window, which was an existing window of the officetel, was used as a motif of the exterior of the building as it is. Because it was considered that the detailed elevation design with the restrained elements of the building elevation was more suitable for the fashion company than the building with the flamboyant gesture. Form of the building before the renovation was a common building built in the 90s in Gangnam, which was built in the days when the energy saving designing standard were not clear. The project was planned with a significant challenge that is from the design to improvement of energy performance. First, the glass finished staircase has been inefficient due to the greenhouse effect, which has led to a mass study of architecture from increasing the percentage of the wall of the existing staircase. As a result, facade that was planned stone finished staircase with the minimum fenestra and dignity was finished at the corner intersection with a presence.

National library of Lithuania in Vilnius by 2XJ Architects

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

Article source: 2XJ Architects

The new interior design for the Martynas Mažvydas National Library of Lithuania was created in the context of the renovation of the building which was originally constructed in 1963.  Many elements including interior spaces, plan structure, interior elements and finishing materials are protected by strict heritage regulations. Therefore the interior spaces essentially were left intact, many interior elements and materials were restored or recreated. Many new functions were introduced within the existing spaces on the six floors of the building. New functional zones include few hundred working spaces for visitors, spaces for co-working, coffee shops, conference room, gallery, recording studio, cinema room, arts incubator, daycare centre and more. A lot of attention was dedicated to the aesthetic solutions highlighting the relation between “the old“ and “the new“. The aim was to make a clear distinction rather than moderating between the two. A modern homogeneous structure of black furniture and other interior elements was created, which forms a new identity for the library. The modular furniture system is minimalist in style, pretentious forms were avoided. Some of the elements were as large as 6 meter in height corresponding to the large scale of interior spaces.

Guaparo House in Carabobo, Venezuela by NMD NOMADAS

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

Article source: NMD NOMADAS

In the tropics, the rooms of a house may be inner and outer spaces overlapping each other; nature and the house are everywhere.

It also seeks to express in the house a way of being characterized by understanding the inner and outer as domestic, even in the public and the open; where the exterior and interior are continuous as an expression without barriers of that expanded domesticity.
