K.I.S.S. – Residential and Commercial Development in Zurich, Switzerland by Evolution Design AG

Wednesday, December 16th, 2015

Article source: Evolution Design AG

The Swiss architecture and design practice Evolution Design, in close collaboration with the client Swiss Life, created 46 individual 2.5-4.5 room maisonettes and flats with a unique concept.

The aim was to develop flats, which would go beyond the functionality and offer an ideal added value as well as have their own identity. This approach responds to the increasing need of individuality and plurality in our current society. Therefore the development of KISS’s design put the future tenant and his personal lifestyle at the centre of its thinking.

The Social Plant in Toplița, Romania by blipsz architecture

Wednesday, December 16th, 2015

Article source: blipsz architecture

The Mayor’s Office of Toplita initiates the rehabilitation of a former industrial facility ahead of the great majority of towns in Romania. Instead of keeping away from these types of real estate values or adopting a scheme of denial, concealment, the proposal „raises” the building from the level of an infrastructural facility to the grade of a community facility: and creating the charming metaphore of a former heating facility as a lively social center.

The Neudorf area of Strasbourg is undergoing a major programme of redevelopment to fill the void that currently separates the city centre from its southern neighbourhoods.
