Shoesme in Tilburg, The Netherlands by Joris Verhoeven Architectuur

Tuesday, December 27th, 2016

Article source: Joris Verhoeven Architectuur 

The new headquarters of Shoesme, a childrens shoe’s manufacturer in Tilburg, has been given two different faces. This conscious duality originated from its location in the city.

On one side, the building has a classical facade that radiates allure and status and blends seamlessly into the historic ribbon structure of the city. The gap in this typical street structure is filled with a building that always seems to have stood there. As if a missing link is put in the chain.

RM HOUSE in Romano d’Ezzelino, Italy by Studio di Architettura Claude Petarlin

Tuesday, December 27th, 2016

Article source: Studio di Architettura Claude Petarlin

The main aspect the attention of this project was focused upon, was the pursuit of  the characterization of the living area, which was rethought according to the “coating” of the existing central pillar. The identification of the new “appearance,” has made it possible to determine and distinguish two specific living areas and to create at the same time a new volume / container which services the TV area. New recessed light fixtures and “blades” of indirect light, consisting of hidden LED strips have been installed. New flooring made of knotty oak has also made it possible to level out the spaces which were previously fragmented by continuous visual discontinuities, determined by the different floor surfaces. All the service areas have been modernized thanks to the use of new materials and surfaces, such as the use of large slabs of porcelain stoneware and coloured enamels.

De Beers Ginza Building in Tokyo, Japan by Jun Mitsui & Associates Inc. Architects

Tuesday, December 27th, 2016

Article source: Jun Mitsui & Associates Inc. Architects 

Ginza is renowned around the world as a commercial hotspot in Tokyo. Marronnier street in Ginza is an especially bright street lined with great buildings each with their own individuality and architectural design. We felt that the De Beers Ginza Building should express the brightness and the glow of Ginza at the same time. For the design, what we imagined firstly was an image of gently curving streams of light. Like a light ribbon being held above the ground, or the aurora that changes its colour and shape continuously, we thought it should have a bright and graceful form with curved lines that look like a women’s beautiful silhouette. We decided to brighten the stainless steel to appear like a diamond glitter along the silhouette to give it a sensitive look. The building has been constructed with stainless steel being rolled out in a curved shape. Each stainless steel surface has a special finish, so the appearance reflects the light of the sky and the town sensitively and changes its appearance throughout the day with the movement of the sun. At the same time, the architectural expression shows infinite changes depending on the position it is seen from. Ginza has always been on the frontier of design, adopting changes over time to form the town. De Beers Ginza is a part of that tradition and our design is an expression of this ever changing town on the frontier of architectural design.

Tre.3 in Legnago, Italy by Studio Athesis

Sunday, December 25th, 2016

Article source: Studio Athesis

The building is adjacent to the historic city center of Legnago. The project includes a modern re-interpretation of the sixteenth and seventeenth-century buildings situated in the historic centers of our cities. The new volume fits into the already-existing buildings with such proportions as to mediate between the impressive volumes present in the rear part of the parcel and the relatively-small houses overlooking the perimeter. The main façade overlooking Via G. Martino, is marked by full and empty spaces with three full parts separated by two pillared loggias; the building is volumetrically symmetric with respect to the central axis of the main body. The vertical division is also tripartite according to ancient traditions: rustication on the lower part, plaster in the middle with a window-framed cornice at the top (skyline). In the main body are some embedded, proportioned red balconies that become the adornment of the façade. The building slopes down in the rear, this forming terraces at different levels, providing ample, exposed spaces available to users.

Astana Expo City 2017 in Kazakhstan by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture

Sunday, December 25th, 2016

Article source: Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture

Astana Expo City 2017, the world’s next international exposition, is now under construction in Astana, Kazakhstan. 28 buildings and the Expo’s master plan were designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture (AS+GG) around the designated theme, “Future Energy,” a concept that is aimed at finding ways to achieve qualitative changes in the energy sector, primarily for the development of alternative sources of energy and transportation.

Located south of Bayterek Tower and east of Nazarbayev University, Astana Expo City 2017 is positioned to become a significant new landmark for Astana. The development’s goal is to reduce the site’s energy demand to the greatest extent possible by using both passive and active strategies. The architecture and master plan were designed by using site-specific indicators like solar and wind orientation, weather conditions, and the cultural context, determined from a series of studies with the goal of maximizing energy-harvesting potential and comfort levels.

Beyond the Edge in Algarve, Portugal by Atelier Monolit

Sunday, December 25th, 2016

Article source: Atelier Monolit

The site landmark is meant to mark the wilderness and the boundlessness of the surroundings but should also operate as an instrument for enhancing one’s senses and setting a strong connection with nature. It essentially represents a frame for human existence and experience, shaped as a monolithic, pure volume, naturally emerging and merging with the rock.
