The “El Tiemblo House”, represents the key values of the Infiniski brand: modular, greener, cheaper, faster, better, cooler and flexible. The project is based on a bioclimatic and modular design, using a prefabricated construction process allowing a reduction in costs, time and environmental impact. Thanks to it’s “modularity” the house was thought in a way it can be easily enlarged depending on the future needs of the client.

Transforming King’s Cross in London, UK by John Mcaslan + Partners

Sunday, March 18th, 2012

Article source: John Mcaslan + Partners

The new Western Concourse at King’s Cross opens to the public on Monday 19th March 2012. “The transformation of King’s Cross station by John McAslan + Partners represents a compelling piece of place-making for London. The show-piece is clearly the Western Concourse – Europe’s largest single span station structure and the heart of the development, but the overall project is far more complex: an extraordinary, collaborative effort that has delivered an internationally significant transport interchange, fit for the 21st century and beyond. We are very proud of our role as lead architects and master-planners of the King’s Cross redevelopment, and it’s immensely satisfying to see the project delivered on time, ready for the capital’s celebration of the London Olympics later this year.”

Article source: Martin Gomez

Following a simple idea, Martin Gomez designed  this house for a couple of young Americans, financiers and lovers of Punta del Este. They asked for advice on finding a good land and ordered the design of a single house, which should be easy to maintain and should have three bedrooms. The home should be in harmony with the environment.

Skyscape Church in Vaaler, Norway by We Architecture

Saturday, March 17th, 2012

Article source: We Architecture

The beautiful Vaalerchurch from 1805 burnt down in the spring of 2009. We have designed a new church as a symbolic landmark to succeed the old building. The new Vaaler church is placed further east from the placement of the old church, marking the historic axis with its tower. The new building is designed as a simple box where one corner is lifted up in order to point out the church room and the tower.

Shoreham Street in Sheffield, UK by Project Orange

Saturday, March 17th, 2012

Article source: Project Orange

192 Shoreham Street is a Victorian industrial brick building sited at the edge of the Cultural Industries Quarter Conservation Area of Sheffield. It is not listed but considered locally significant. The completed development seeks to rehabilitate the once redundant building, celebrate its industrial heritage and make it relevant to its newly vibrant context. The brief was to provide mixed use combining a desirable double height restaurant/bar within the original shell (capitalising on the raw industrial character of the existing building) with duplex studio office units above. These are accommodated in an upward extension of the existing building in a contrasting but complementary volume, a replacement for the original pitched roof.

Nordpark Railway Stations in Innsbruck, Austria by Zaha Hadid Architects

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Article source: Zaha Hadid Architects

‘Shell & Shadow’: a unique architectural language of fluidity inspired by natural ice formations, for stations along Innsbruck’s northern chain of mountains. Lightweight organic roof structures float on concrete plinths, their soft shapes and contours creating an artificial landscape that describes the movement and circulation within. The brief called for the design of four stations along cable railway tracks leading to Innsbruck’s northern chain of mountains. Each station had its own unique context, topography, altitude and circulation and adaptation to these specific site conditions was critical to the design approach – while maintaining a coherent overall architectural language.
