COAS OFFICES AND HEADQUARTERS in Bilbao, SPAIN by Juan M. Otxotorena

Tuesday, April 21st, 2015

Article source: Juan M. Otxotorena

The location of the proposed new building is set in response to the combination of  clear criteria of availability of space with powerful reasons of ease of use, based on the experience of the life of the school.

The fundamental design decisions are deducted in effect, in general, a number of criteria securely fastened in the minds of the property, from their experience. And this experience is nothing other than that which you have provided years of the College and its various buildings and facilities. Such criteria have decided to check the location of this new construction, according to their functional efficacy in terms of use of the land, organizational coherence, order, and optimizing the circulation, spatial sequence, and above all the desire of minimizing interference from the new building to the daily operation of the existing complex built of the school has played a special role.

Novopie Podiatric Clinic in Malaga, Spain by Architecture Studio Antonio Jurado

Tuesday, April 21st, 2015

Article source: Architecture Studio Antonio Jurado

Novopie Podiatric Clinic is located in Torrox, a Malaga town, with the tourist slogan: ‘the best weather in Europe’. It is placed in a small shop of 18 square meters, on the ground floor of a residential building, inside of a coastal development built in the seventies.

Although the space is limited, the needs are the same than in a regular podiatric clinic: WAITING ROOM, WORKING ROOM and a BATHROOM as basic program. We proposed as additional program a WAREHOUSE, a STOREFRONT and a SHOWER.

House B in B – Larch Gold and Glacier White by Matti Schmalohr DI Architekt BDA DWB

Saturday, April 18th, 2015

Article source: Matti Schmalohr DI Architekt BDA DWB

This single storey longhouse in the park is a retirement home of a wine merchant and his wife, in close proximity to their children. Placed between two 60-year-old trees, the building is in close contact with the trees, includes the Siberian larch clad building the land from urban development. The larch façade and on the roof underscores the monolithic character of the archetypal house. The foundation of the south-facing wood construction forms the historical underground wine cellar, which is accessible from the outside. Sliding doors inside and outside connect with nature and allow the housing in an extending up to the front door, structured rocket ship. The sheltering Gable roof with its sky images always remains present.

Civic Center in Milan, Italy by Mario Buonamici Architettura

Saturday, April 18th, 2015

Article source: Mario Buonamici Architettura

The project has two objectives: on the one hand, and dialectically interacts dynamically with the surrounding context, both the connotation of natural green park is artificial, urban and contemporary Quarter Island; on the other hand, gives body to a structure characterized by great flexibility of composition and organization, in full respect of public destination and functions identified. An architecture that shapes, materials and design, integrates and permeates in the green, while maintaining its definite individuality: a distance dialogue between artificial and natural. The building itself contains the souls formal and organizational of the park: the geometric rigor of the design of the meshes of the fields and the orderly organization curvilinear forest circular; However, it reverses the order and spatial relations and displacement: the plans are settled and are arranged vertically in overlapping; warps the closed circular logging is deconstruct opening in sinuous waves and irregular, which, like the natural scenery which surround, taking forms and aspects always different and define forms and public functions intended to evolve and change according to the needs of its users.

Saturday, April 18th, 2015

Article source: CUBO design architect

This hair salon “BLISS” is a tenant interior design project on the second floor of the building, located near the Komachi St. in Kamakura. Request from the client is hybrid of 2 main identity in Kamakura, luxury and surf culture, which is a proposed analysis of preference and age group of the target that comes from the client’s experience. We set the light effect to enjoy different feeling from natural light in daytime to indirect illumination at night. In the entrance, after walking throw 2 main gate silently on the carpet as a check in high class hotel, counseling and reception counter is placed as if a concierge desk. Next to the counter, waiting space surrounded by white bamboo has a function of a buffer between cut space and lounge space. Between cut space and shampoo space, green screen is installed as a see throw partition, creating the soft atmosphere of the space. We challenged to direct two atmosphere in one space by changing contrast of light effect with material.

Anne de Bretagne secondary school in Saint-Herblain, France by Philippe Gazeau

Saturday, April 18th, 2015

Article source: Philippe Gazeau

West of Nantes, the new Collège Anne de Bretagne secondary school at St-Herblain stands out in the location as a feature linking a town park, various neighboring public utilities and the Loire valley landscape. The project fits into the site through an irregular base dressed in timber powerfully set into the slightly sloping land. This rough ground floor bears a much simpler looping figure that tapers on the upper floor housing the classrooms. The base blends in with the immediate vicinity while the upstairs area looks out over the landscape further afield.
