As part of the Saint Peter District property development in the west area of San Pedro Cholula, Puebla, Ágata Tower emerges as a stylized prism that holds 7 apartments.

The building’s land use is residential and it is erected from the parking lot upwards to its 7 levels as an element whose shape results from the desired directions, both towards the volcanoes and towards the Cholula pyramid.

Located in a suburb of ChauDoc town in AnGiang province, Southern Vietnam, this house is a sharing residence of 3 nuclear families who are kin. Although this project budget was tightened with local standards, which only allowed us to build a house with thin corrugated metal panels, we have tried to satisfy not only the regional spirits but also the rich lifestyle in which is fulfilled by sunlight, greenery and natural ventilation, as it were, living in a half-outdoor gardens.

The façade is wrapped by thin corrugated metal, which contributes not only to save the construction cost but also to blend with surrounding houses, Image Image Courtesy © Hiroyuki Oki photos

Simple House in Jeju Province, Korea by MOONBALSSO(Moon Hoon)

Friday, September 22nd, 2017

Article source: MOONBALSSO(Moon Hoon)

The weather is strong, it dominates jeju life, it is very windy quite often, and weather changes instantaneously.  The basalt rocks are everywhere, demarcating fields, and individual houses. The orum, which is like a little hill, is everywhere, more than 350 of them in jeju island. It creates a scene. The island is sort of an exotica among Koreans, weather and vegetation reminds them of tropics. In the past, it was home for many exiles from the mainland. Time flows rather differently here. Weather is the ruler.

Article source: FRPO

Parque Yucatán Housing is part of a wider project developed in central Mexico which deals with house industrialization processes. The implementation of a mixed construction system proposes the construction of a ground floor by traditional means –a brick and concrete wall closing a certain area- which is technified by a technical module. Over these enclosures, a series of prefabricated 2,44 x 6,10 x 3,06 m modules are lifted, built with metal frame structure and dry construction systems.

The housing complex is situated on a suburban area within the Puebla metropolitan area, and it is characterized through the configuration of certain particularities obtained from slight variations of a basic piece, a regular 12,20 x 6,10 x 3,06 m box.

Project Description

Cross-pollination and encounter are key words in the design of the renovation of the Dental Sciences Building, part of the Faculty of Medical Sciences of the Radboud University and the Arnhem Nijmegen College. The renovated building combines theory and practice in education, research and patient care.

With a façade, a new central atrium and new installations, the building is making a sustainability transition aimed at energy saving, an increase in comfort, flexible use and a contemporary look. The right separation and connections between users, between practice spaces and teach and instruction rooms, changing and flexible use – including the longer term – and the choice of quality materials prepare the building for the future.

Lonshry Jewelry Art Store in Guangdong, China by AD ARCHITECTURE

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

Article source: AD ARCHITECTURE 

LONSHRY Jewelry Art Store is located in the F16 Mall in Shantou, selling stylish jewelry of high quality.

It is a small space with only 60 sqm and there is a big pillar in the middle of it – it’s really a project which requires brainstorming. As both the designers and owner hope to make it different with traditional jewelry stores, and reflects the owner’s operation principle of pursuit of fashion, so we intended to design a jewelry store with sensory experience. It makes the design more difficult having a big pillar in the middle of this small space, but the designers cleverly designed floating “flowing bubbles” around the pillar, turning the shortcoming of the space into a bright spot, thus adding life to the bland space.
