Carlos Santamaría Centre in San Sebastián, Spain by JAAM sociedad de arquitectura

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013

Article source: JAAM sociedad de arquitectura

The Carlos Santamaría Centre, located in San Sebastian, is an advanced data centre and library, linked to the Ibaeta University Campus.

The building is conceived as a huge container, shaped from a spontaneous outline following the natural curve of the plot. The line is the wall containing the two blocks arranged in a north-south direction, and its vertex is at the place we consider the most important: the building’s main access, which opens up like a large mouth, pointing the vertex towards the sky.

Sprawled across 2,000 square meters over five full floors and a basement/parking floor, the existing six-storey building was reorganized and converted into an office space for the Yemeksepeti project.

The primary objective of the project was to reflect the young, dynamic, unique, and fun working environment of the company on the office spaces. With this idea in mind, the project foresaw well-lit and spacious areas that would arouse a feeling of belonging among the employees.

Housing in Taipei, Taiwan by Chin Architects

Tuesday, December 25th, 2012

Article source: Chin Architects

At Kuo Yang Tien Mu, which is located at an important urban junction, I attempt to transform the building envelope that protects the residents’ private lives into a meaningful public city façade. The architecture is to initiate an intriguing dialogue with the disordered built environment through a unique yet contemporary gesture. The design wishes to break away from the typical mundane and repetitive urban residential housing, and express a vibrant city life specific to Taipei City instead.
