House of Setagaya in Tokyo, Japan by Kazuya Shikinami

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

Article source: Kazuya Shikinami

When we first visited our site, there was a grove on the lot beside it. When we started to construct our project these trees were already removed from the mentioned lot. On our first design of this project, we decided to remove the grove in the neighboring site completely. In this way, we tried to incorporate the original landscape of the city on our site.

Energetic and Formal Renovation of an Industrial Building in Italy, Florence by TA Plan Design

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

Article source: TA Plan Design

The renovation of the industrial building was done to reduce energy consumption for heating by installing a polystyrene foam “coat” on all the external involucre. Particular attention was also given to the summer behavior of the building that had significant overheating problems. All windows of the south side have been screened by curved section brise-soleil manually adjustable: trough this setting you can block the passage of sunlight in summer and instead favoring the passive solar contribution in winter season.

Article source: NFOE et Associes Architectes

A new office for the century-old firm NFOE et associés architectes
NFOE et associés architectes, founded in 1912, recently moved its offices into Old Montreal. The building, the first skyscraper in Montreal – better known as the New York Life Building (1887–89) – stands out from its surroundings for its exuberant cladding of Scottish red sandstone and red granite from the Thousand Islands. NFOE’s Bureau 100 facing the historic Place d’Armes square, is thus integrated with an environment that evokes the history of the firm founded by Ernest I. Barott (as Barott, Blackader & Webster) in 1912.
