Located at the end of two dead-end streets, the Xeros residence is positioned upon the upward slope of a 50’x 250’ double lot facing the mountain preserve to the north and the city center to the south.

What happens when the concept of a project is reduced to a facade in the process of its development? Are purely aesthetic aims valid in architecture? Is façadism something worthwhile? Are we to become architectural dermatologists?
A client contacted us to design a hotel for corporate suites in Napoles, a residential neighborhood in Mexico City that has been rapidly converting to office use over the past few years. The plot was located across the street from the convention center of the World Trade Center, by far the busiest office building in the city. The suites were intended to accommodate businesspeople visiting the WTC and the year round expositions.

Social and ethical responsibility
Our responsibility goes beyond offering just a living space. We give examples of certain elements like water and how it can be captured, treated and reused. Our building offers less consumption of energy through passive ventilation and naturally illuminated spaces. We created a habitat for migrating species, offered spaces for growing your own food. We are enhancing life quality and education on an urban context through our proposal just by a deep understanding of it’s social and ecological history.

KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten International has won the international competition entitled “Blue Sky Building Project” for the Air China headquarters in the major west Chinese city Chengdu. With its design for the high-rise, the international team from Frankfurt/Main and Beijing headed by Johannes Reinsch, Managing Director of KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten International GmbH, saw off five other entries. The office boasts a gross surface area (GSA) of 124,000 m² and offers space for a total of 5,470 workspaces. The fact that the high-rise design should serve as a role model with regard to energy efficiency and sustainability is of major concern to the developer.

Located on an extraordinary coastal Connecticut site, this house sits at the edge of Long Island Sound. A four bedroom, simple plan, 1950’s ranch existed on the site when the project began. Its proximity to the water would not have been replicable if not for the existing condition. A sixty foot long window wall, eight feet high now offers an unobstructed view of the Sound. The colors and materials of the interior range from grey to white and have surface reflectivity that ranges from matte to reflective.

Located in front of Manila City Hall, the proposed project by HartnessVision integrates “water branding” into the landscape architecture of a Maynilad water distribution facility. The site is organized around 3 programmed, landscaped axes (nature, access, amenities) in which pedestrians have priority. The presence of systemic infrastructural strategy and notions of environmental stewardship permeate the design language.

- Project: Water Brand
- Location: Manila, Philippines
- Software used: Sketchup and 3DS max, with post production in Photoshop. The entire presentation was formatted for PowerPoint presentation to the client (Maynilad) hosting the competition.
