Designed by Nigel Grigg of ITN Architects, this former industrial warehouse has been converted into two, three storey warehouse apartments by removing the roof, retaining the lower floors and constructing a new upper floor which has been set back on all sides to create upper decks and balconies.
To create pure and bright interior space, white tiles,white rolling pins, brass and old planks are chosen to be main materials of this project. This is a breakthrough of the original unsophiscated style with wooden color tune.
Surfaces of the wall are divided into seven different zones with six different sizes of white tiles. The same measurement is used on the surface of ground. Brass is used on the margin of different kinds of tiles. The purity of white tile and simplicity of brass stripe works together to improve indoor atmosphere.
The concept of urban development is based on the landscape of open spaces with trees (historical Prater landscape) and the building units positioned in it. The sequence of built-up and undeveloped space is the result of the rhythm of several parameters including: spatial edges, rough-determining distances, orientation and interspaces. Due to the bridge connections in airy heights, eye-to-eye connections are maintained and a diversified movement with different room coverings along the lively ground floor zone is given. Places, meadows, landscapes accompany the residents, users and visitors on the fast way through or during a leisurely walk through the district of Zwei Plus. The difference between open spaces and differently equipped places takes place in addition to the adjacent buildings and the surroundings. Use: car parking, green campus with offices, dormitories and residential studios.
The location for the new offices is a 8,715 sq ft single-storey space on 5th floor of a newly-redeveloped Crown Estates building, facing onto Air Street (where entrance is located) and Glasshouse Street – just minutes from Piccadilly Circus. The premises benefit from great natural light, with windows the full length of both sides, plus a sympathetic base-build delivered by the landlord’s architects, featuring limed oak and good quality architectural lighting.
ATLAS HOTEL HOIAN is located in Hoi An’s “Old Town; an area which has rapidly grown since it was officially named by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Recently, most of the ancient houses have been converted into shops and restaurants that serve the daily influx of tourism. The neighborhood is well known for its beautiful tiled-roofscape and its internal courtyards that provide a layered spatial quality between the inner and outer spaces. This quality has been slowly eroded due to chaotic commercial flow. As a consequence, Old Town has lost its charm of a calm and peaceful lifestyle.
