Cinema Ideal in LISBON, Portugal by José Neves

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

Article source: José Neves

Cinema Ideal was the first cinema in Portugal. Located in the heart of Lisbon, between Loreto and Horta Seca streets, it occupies the ground floor of two buildings built in two different epochs – 19th and 20th centuries. Since its inauguration in 1904, the cinema was transformed by multiple interventions, becoming a degraded and architecturally disqualified place, showing exclusively pornographic films during the last three decades.

World Festival of Interiors 2015 announce category winners Day Two

Sunday, November 15th, 2015

INSIDE – World Festival of Interiors has announced the five award winners on the second day of the festival at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. The schemes selected demonstrate the strength of creative design around the world with winning projects selected from four different continents.

The Shepherd’s Bush Pavilion Hotel in London by Flanagan Lawrence won the Creative Re-use category. The Grade II listed former cinema in west London was transformed into a hotel that preserved the building’s civic pride whilst creating additions including a grand atrium featuring golden hooped balconies that rise to the full height of the structure. The judges described the atrium as “instrumental” to the design and contributed to the creation of an “elegant and sophisticated interior”.

A cinema resembling a scene from a disaster movie triumphed in the Civic, Culture & Transport category. ‘Exploded’ in China by One Plus Partnership places cinema-goers at the heart of the action with a chaotic composition of sharp lines and box-like structures to bridge the gap between the big screen and the viewer.

World Architecture Festival (WAF) 2015 Winners announced Day Two

Sunday, November 15th, 2015

London, United Kingdom – A Manhattan transport hub, a ballet school in St Petersburg and an olive oil factory in Uruguay are all winners at World Architecture Festival Awards and took part in the battle to seize ultimate accolade of World Building of the Year 2015.

In the Culture Completed Buildings category, Soma City Home for All in Japan, by Klein Dytham Architecture, was victorious. This pro bono project is an indoor play space for children between the ages of 0-4, positioned at the heart of the acres of temporary housing that were built to replace the 250,000 homes destroyed in the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami. Conceived as a large straw hat held aloft by trees, this building provides a safe indoor play space that is an important amenity for the community amidst ongoing concerns about background radiation levels. The judges commented that the project ‘clearly demonstrates the potential of architecture to be genuinely transformatory and shows how culture can take root and lift spirits in the most challenging circumstances’.

Health project of the year was named as Walumba Elders Centre, Australia, by Iredale Pedersen Hook. After the town of Warmun was devastated by a catastrophic flood, Iredale Pedersen Hook Architects was tasked with rebuilding the community facility buildings and the old Walumba Aged Care centre, working directly with the community elders and care staff to achieve what judges describe as ‘an informed and sensitive response to the social and environmental context’.

Hotel and Leisure was won by Lanserhof, Lake Tegernby Ingenhoven Architects, Germany. A health resort where sustainable architecture combines exquisite hotel facilities and state-of-the-art medical care. The room-height glazing and generous loggia at the front of each room also provide broad views of the natural landscape of the Tegernsee valley while respecting the surrounding landscape. Judges said Ingenhoven Architects ‘demonstrated a wonderful dexterity in creating human scaled spaces, fully supporting the brief for wellness design’.

The prefabricated modular system is designed to bring modern living standards and energy efficiency to buildings that are centuries old, while keeping them fully intact.

In the Religion category, Qatar Faculty of Islamic Studies by the Qatar Foundation and Mangera Yvars Architects is ‘a school and prayer place pushing the boundaries of traditional Islamic architecture’, say WAF judges. A space dedicated to research and debate about Islam, the architects employed geometric patterns, developed as an interpretation of traditional Islamic designs. The building corridors display relief panels depicting the beauty of elements of the architectural heritage of the Muslim world, and all interiors have visual or physical access to gardens. Calligraphy wraps around the central courtyards and minarets in a manner consistent with the overall architectural design.

The Ballet School, St Petersburg, by Studio 44 Architects won the Schools category with a design that ‘re-establishes a series of heritage buildings using a restrained palette of materials contrast with the early Russian industrial aesthetic of the gritty area’. The project includes two new buildings – teaching and dormitory blocks. The space between the new volumes is interpreted as an atrium, where recreation spaces co-exist with ballet classrooms. The walls of recreation spaces and ballet classes are realized in semi-transparent glass, which serves to flood the building with natural light.

The Sport category was claimed by San Mamés Stadium by Azcárate (ACXT-IDOM), Spain, a ‘truly local stadium for its local club that is the beating heart of the city’. The home of Athletico Bilbao, the stadium was conceived as an urban building for the community rather than a mere sports facility.

Transport was won by The Fulton Center, Manhattan’s new transport hub by Grimshaw/Arup/James Carpenter/HDR/Page Ayres Cowley. Judges commended the structure as ‘a sophisticated and powerful response, skilfully integrating the art commission to create an uplifting new landmark for the city’. Servicing 300,000 daily transit passengers in the heart of lower Manhattan, the Fulton Center is design to be a catalyst for the redevelopment of the area.

In Future Projects Education, the Wellington College Performing Arts Centre by Seilern Architects, UK, was awarded for ‘a poetic relationship between the planned spaces and the existing building and landscape’.  The scheme comprises a radical rethink of the theatrical and musical teaching and performance spaces found at the college. The buildings have been designed to sit into the steep slope to minimise impacts to the surroundings and to sit appropriately within the vernacular,a dense forest, with large full height thick charred timber cladding to mimic and blend in with the forest’s bark textures.

In the experimental category, Home Farm by SPARK, Singapore, is ‘a culturally, socially and environmentally sustainable project that offers a real model for the future and gives real thought to the value of the elderly population’, say judges. A conceptual proposal for the next generation of urban retirement housing, the project presents a living typology for Singapore that incorporates vertical urban farming and presents a sustainable way to enhance the city state’s food security, as opposed to the 90% of food currently being imported to the city state.

Future Projects Residential was claimed by Bjarke Ingells Group with its Vancouver House concept in Canada. The project negotiates a difficult site trisected by an overpass, with BIG’s response optimising the conditions for its future inhabitants — in the air as well as on the street. ‘The project demonstrates how architecture can successfully transform residual urban spaces by taking advantage of the air rights above, creating an intelligent and sculptural form that is both purposeful and beautiful’.

ONE FAMILY HOUSE IN Cádiz, Spain by alzugaray estudio de arquitectura

Sunday, November 15th, 2015

Article source: alzugaray estudio de arquitectura 

The house is situated on the occidental edge of the natural park of the Estrecho, on an abrupt hillside, where the landscape value, its orientation and complicated topography are determining factors. Instead of viewing these factors as potential limits we considered them to be incentives for a better solution for the project, helping reinforce the intrinsic singularity of the emplacement, to which service is set this construction.

Kite Roof House in Singapore by AAMER ARCHITECTS

Sunday, November 15th, 2015

Article source: AAMER ARCHITECTS

One of the main design challenges for this house was the rather tight triangular site with a narrow entrance from the street. Aamer’s design addressed these site limitations by turning them into opportunities. The house is arranged in an L-shaped configuration, with all the spaces oriented towards a triangular plot of private garden hidden from the street. At the street front, Aamer introduced a continuous mono-pitch roof from the attic to the car porch.

World Festival of Interiors 2015 announce category winners Day One

Sunday, November 15th, 2015

INSIDE – World Festival of Interiors has announced the best interior designs of 2015 across the categories of Hotels, Bars & Restaurants, Residential and Retail. The annual awards, which started at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, encompass the best interior designs from the past 12 months from around the globe and this years winners include a hotel lobby made from fragmented pieces of wood and a converted warehouse in Bangkok.

The Hotels category went to the aptly name Hotel Hotel. Located in Canberra, the design for the hotel centredaround a welcoming lobby constructed from fractured wood fragments that direct the visitors through the interior spaces and create a stark contrast to the polished walls that surround it. The project by March Studio was awarded the prize for their creative and passionate approach that saw the studio use unorthodox materials to create an unexpected result, a design approach that could have appeared soulless if executed by the wrong designer according to the judges.
