House in Tulum, Mexico by Domaine Public Architects

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

Article source: Domaine Public Architects

A client’s desire for an expansive outdoor program allows for contextual integration within its larger site, while maximizing the benefits of potential environmental strategies. By elevating all primary functions, the ground floor is liberated from all construction. It is transformed into an expansive lush garden, an extension of the Mexican jungle.

Integral Iluminación Comercial Building in Samborondon , Ecuador by Jannina Cabal & Arquitectos

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

Article source: Jannina Cabal & Arquitectos

General Parameters 

Oriented from north to south, Integral Iluminación Commercial Building, developed in two diamond-shaped plots with a total building area of 12,701 square feet. One of the requirements of the project was to keep the exterior structure of the existing house (columns, walls and pitched roof) in one of the plots while a new structure proposed for the expansion of the building on the second plot. Considering that Integral Iluminacion sells top of the line lighting and automatization systems, it was extremely important to conceive a cutting edge architectural design that would become an icon for the company.

Middle Ground by SUSTAINABLE.TO

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

Article source: SUSTAINABLE.TO

As the world’s population migrates to urban centers, we have no choice but to combine and layer multiple, differing uses. Typically, residential and office zones are built in isolation, creating segregated neighbourhoods. This creates a scenario where buildings remain empty for large time spans, and amenities are doubled, one created for each zone.

Lee Boyd has recently collaborated on the exciting new visitor centre for Beefeater Gin at their distillery in central London which now provides visitors an insight into the history of gin and an understanding of the process of gin making.  A bold new extension providing a point of entry to the centre, links the different parts of the distillery and allows visitors to move from the exhibition floor to the stills house without interrupting the day to day workings at Beefeater. Beefeater Gin is the world’s number one premium gin and has been made in the heart of London for over 150 years, the only international brand to have its distillery in the capital.

TRANSFORMATION TOWNHALL BORSELE in Heinkenszand, Netherlands by Atelier Kempe Thill architects

Saturday, August 30th, 2014

Article source: Atelier Kempe Thill architects

The municipality of Borsele in the Dutch province of Zeeland was founded in 1970 by the merging of 13 villages. Heinkenszand was assigned centre of this newly formed administrative unit and a new town hall was built for the 25.000 inhabitants. More then 30 years after the opening, the building was in need of rehabilitation. On the one hand, the façade as well as the roof weren’t fully waterproof anymore. Furthermore, the building had to undergo an asbestos abatement to adapt to modern building standards. On the other hand the interior of the building had to be renovated in order to create a flexible and modern office environment. The building climate had to be improved in order to reduce energy loss.
