Orsino Building, Uxbridge High School in England by AndArchitects

Sunday, June 11th, 2017

Article source: AndArchitects

The brief was to create a building that would provide a space for teaching music and drama and to celebrate and inspire students’ performance. This was a complex planning procedure as the site sits within the Green Belt and teaching was to be maintained during the demolition of the old block and new construction.

Sunday, June 11th, 2017

Article source: Ministry of Design

Inhabiting 6 converted shophouse units at the confluence of Singapore’s historic Chinatown area and the CBD, MOD’s own design studio employs the same key principles which govern its approach to design—typological relevance, a disciplined material and tonal palette and an ‘essentialised” concept.

H+L House in Biarritz, France by GARDERA-D Architecture

Sunday, June 11th, 2017

Article source: GARDERA-D Architecture

The project is composed of two familial houses joined together on the first floor with covered garages and swimming pools.

The projected houses are set back on the north side of the land and, given the unevenness existing of the street side, their presence from the public domain remains very discreet. The project is based on three parallelepiped volumes in the first floor oriented North-South, between which lower volumes are intercalated in the ground floor.

Project Floor Area Ratio Game in Ulsan, South Korea by ON Architecture INC.

Friday, June 9th, 2017

Article source: ON Architecture INC.  

Prologue

The most important issue when planning the design of the house in 2014 was like “FAR Game: Constraints Sparking Creativity,” which was the theme of the Korean Pavilion in the Venice Biennial, 2016. This land is a class 2 general residential area, so an architect can build a building with a 60% the building?to-land ratio and a 200% floor area ratio. It is common to design a three-story building with a 60% building-to-land ratio and to design the fourth floor with a 20% building-to-land-ratio. However, the land area (142m2) was so small that 20% of the area was only 28.4m2. It was important to find alternatives to look for a maximum floor area ratio to meet what the building owner required without any loss.

HDI Tokyo Office in Japan by van der Architects

Friday, June 9th, 2017

Article source: van der Architects 

What does an authentic workplace look like? Designing an authentic office is not an easy task. Just like the terms “artist”, “poet” or “great lover”, these are titles that are given or need to be earned rather than being self-assigned.

Our attempt in creating an authentic workplace started off with our WorkVitamins methodology. This methodology was created by me, Martin van der Linden, principal of van der Architects, when I was an assistant researcher at Waseda Univeristy in 2001 here in Tokyo. I believes that architecture can be a catalyst for change in innovative environments, and this methodology – called “WorkVitamins” – is based on this idea.
