Double Tree by Hilton Hotel in Chinchwad, Pune, India by Masafumi Sanada

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

Article source: Masafumi Sanada

Chinchwad is a thirty minute drive from the center of Pune, and is thriving as a factory neighborhood of domestic and Western automakers. The main target for this hotel is these Western businesspersons.

This was our seventh project in India, and we designed the whole interior of the newly built hotel with 14 floors and about 120 rooms. It is a five-star hotel, which is still rare in Chinchwad, and has all-day dining, a bar, spa, hair salon, gym, ex-lounge, presidential suite, and roof top bar facilities.

Article source: MVRDV

Just before a Korean pop-song became a global success on YouTube for the first time in history, and Gangnam became world famous as the nouveau riche hangout of the South-Korean capital Seoul, MVRDV was commissioned by Woon Nam Management Ltd. to redefine a building on Gangnams chic Apgujung Road. Even though the Chungha building was completed in the 1980’s it was already outdated in a street dominated by flagship stores. The transformation, which added an extra level, was completed in just 9 months.

Arsenal B47 / transformation by Ralph Germann architectes

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

Article source: Ralph Germann architectes

The owner of the arsenal wanted to convert this former Swiss army building, constructed during the Second World War, into a habitable space.

Architect Ralph Germann’s transformation involved inserting a glass cube into the old structure, an option which meant he didn’t have to touch the patina of the walls, and was able to preserve the roof and some historic details such as the “charge maximum 1500 kg au m2”[maximum load 1500 kg/m2] sign on the wall.

Residence in Kallitechnoupolis by Tense Architecture Network

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

Article source: Tense Architecture Network

The residence’s view is a slope: a naked attic slope. The site is significantly inclined and is accessed only through its narrow upper side. The declivity of the site faces an equally slanted hill –the predominant point of visual reference. As the residence neighbors with two extrovert residences on both sides, it realizes enclosure, concentration of the view and an introvert  escalating development of its open spaces towards the east. The opposing landscape of the hill is perceived from a distance.

Acoustic Alchemy in 14 Crowhurst Drive by hyla architects

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

Article source: hyla architects

The living, dining and kitchen areas of this 2-storey semi-detached house have been designed as one large AV and entertainment space, efficiently soundproofed by double glazed sliding-folding doors. The two side walls that flank this space were intentionally built to taper towards the rear.
This creates a slightly funnelled space that not only enhances the acoustic qualities of the room but also enables storage niches along the thicker ends of the walls to house hi-fi equipment.
