The Cervantes Institute in Brussels, Belgium by Carlos Arroyo Architects

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

Article source: Carlos Arroyo Architects

Compact and Flexible

One of the major challenges of the project was to combine at the ground floor level the required flexibility for a multifunctional and public space, and allowing at the same time the possibility to locate 30.000 books of the library. The system proposed to solve this issue was a three-dimensional version of the Cervantes Institute Logo. Orthogal geometries created by thick red lines which limit undefined spaces. One can move between this lines full of books and spend some time sitting on the benches located on the hallways or going out to wider spaces to enjoy the lecture at the café. The books work also as a storefront background. The activities allocated in this floor are visible from the street as a way to highlight its public essence. A domestic library, a coffee hall, a multifunctional space with stands or the information displayed on the monitors.

Stone Clubhouse in Santa Ponça, Spain by GRAS Arquitectos

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

Article source: GRAS Arquitectos

A golf club house always combines a social human activity with the fact of being in the middle of a natural environment, a golf course. The Project maximizes this combination: social interaction, it is a “ club” and landscape; A certain centrality, recognition is always needed; By being a clubhouse, no matter it is a small building, the project is the center, the heart, of a big natural area: it needs visibility without being invasive in the landscape.

Double house in Ulsan, SOUTH KOREA by On Architecture

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

Article source: MasilWIDE

The house is located on a sloped corner site in the Innovation City, and it’s looking at a distant mountain in the northeast. The site is sitting at an intersection of a mixed-use housing block and a general dispatched housing block. To use the existing slope, the floor of the retail area on the 1st floor is divided from its corner into two in a diagonal direction, and the level of those two floors are set differently in order to maximize spatial flexibility. For the house on the 3rd floor, its access, entrance and living room are designed to offer a view to the mountain in the northeast. The living room is placed on a space where the mass is segmented in two directions so that it can be linked with a deck outside and also take advantage of natural ventilation all the time.

The project brings all together, in a semi-buried 52-seat car park, several entities with a tertiary vocation:

Cité internationale Paul Ricœur in Rennes, France by Hérault Arnod Architectes

Sunday, April 2nd, 2017

Article source: v2com

The plot is located at the interface between two very different urban logics: on one side, a modern district made up of wide public spaces and large-sized buildings, on the other, the historical town-centre consisting of smaller slate-roof buildings. One of the project’s challenges is to articulate the traditional city and the modern city scales, using both the organisation of its volumes and the layout of its functions.

Sunday, April 2nd, 2017

Article source: Shenzhen Qianxun Decorative Art and Design Co., Ltd 

This project advocates the combination of nature and humanities, and it adopts the interspersed animals and plants of nature to increase the vividness of the space. It presents a high quality leisure life style full of cultural ambience. With the dominant colors of glacier gray and taupe and partial embellishment of ocean blue, the color combination is harmonious and warm. Together with the flying birds decoration on the background wall, it gives the room a quiet atmosphere. The overall furniture style is steady and simple, and the rounded furniture not only softens the toughness of square building, but also fits the tradition of the East.

Meteor Cinema in Guangzhou Shi, China by One Plus Partnership Limited

Sunday, April 2nd, 2017

Article source: v2com

Meteor Cinema is a 2-storey cinema located in a shopping mall in Guangzhou. A meteor is an astronomical observation where a bright trail of light appears in the night sky when a meteoroid enters the Earth’s atmosphere. This beautiful scene only appears in the sky for a very brief moment, and then vanishes without leaving any trace behind.

The concept of meteor shower continues through the auditorium. In each of the auditorium, the designers have created a different portrayal of meteor shower, enabling the audience to have a new experience when they watch movie in different auditoriums, Image Courtesy © One Plus Partnership Limited & Jonathan Leijonhufvud
