DC Tower in Vienna, Austria by DOMINIQUE PERRAULT ARCHITECTURE

Saturday, March 1st, 2014

Article source: DOMINIQUE PERRAULT ARCHITECTURE

When an architect delivers a building it is always an extremely emotional moment, marked by the end of a long process of mediation, from absolute potentiality of early sketches to fine tuning in situ of final details. An actor, for a time, in the endless development of territories, the architect exits the scene. He hands over the controls to those he has been working for. This is the moment when architecture transitions from the intellectual, conceptual state to the fundamentally physical and real.

Goodwood Residence in Bukit Timah Road, Singapore by WOHA

Saturday, March 1st, 2014

Article source: WOHA

Set amidst an enclave of black and white houses just off the prime Orchard/Scotts Road area, and against a verdant 20-hectare backdrop of greenery, the 210-unit Goodwood Residence is conceived on a macro scale as a breathing space – a rarity in high density urbanised Singapore – and an extension of the Goodwood Hill tree conservation area that it shares a boundary of 150m with. Articulated as two 12-storey L-shaped blocks, the 2.5-hectare development dialogues with the hill that it embraces and merges with in a language of openness and continuity made expressive by varying degrees of scale and privacy.

Lush greenery along site perimeter dissolves the building boundary and affords a green introduction to the development., Image Courtesy © Patrick Bingham-Hall

Standard House in Pszczyna, Poland by KWK PROMES

Saturday, March 1st, 2014

Article source: KWK PROMES

The project arose in untypical conditions: it was supposed to be built in two different places – near Pszczyna and in the outskirts of Berlin. As the second location was still to be chosen, the main goal became to design a house that fits every plot. This is how the idea of standard hOuse emerged, first such an attempt in the KWK Promes history. Round shape of the house makes it easily suitable to any given shape of the site, freedom in the choice of a roof type makes it universal in terms of landscape conditionings, while flexibility of interior plan adopts it to needs of an individual family.

Station Rancour: holiday homes in renovated former carriages in Belgium by sabine schweigert

Friday, February 28th, 2014

Article source: sabine schweigert

Two carriages of the M2 train, which until 1990 regularly hauled passengers along the Belgian railway network, can now be found inside “Station Racour” (Belgium). Skilfully renovated and refurbished, while at the same time adhering to the styles, colours and finishes of the original structure, today the carriages take on a new role as two four-star holiday homes, each of approximately 60 square metres and accommodating a maximum of six people.

CHHATRAPATI SHIVAJI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, TERMINAL 2 in Mumbai, India by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP

Friday, February 28th, 2014

Article source: Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP

Ten years ago, Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport welcomed six million passengers per year through its gates; today it serves nearly five times that number. With the city’s emergence as India’s financial capital and the country’s rapidly expanding and economically mobile middle class, the existing airport infrastructure proved unable to support the growing volume of domestic and global traffic, resulting in frequent delays. By orchestrating the complex web of passengers and planes into a design that feels intuitive and responds to the region’s rocketing growth, the new Terminal 2 asserts the airport’s place as a preeminent gateway to India.
