Gran Mediterraneo in Tel Aviv, Israel by Architectures David Tajchman

Friday, September 2nd, 2016

Article source: Architectures David Tajchman 

The Gran Mediterraneo is an innovative concept of High-Rise that integrates a public automated car-park, operates as the first induction charging station for public and shared electric driverless vehicles in the city (future ‘sherut’), and mixes programs of vertical living: residential apartments and hotel, bars and restaurants, farming and public gardens, swimming pools and dead sea spas, co-working spaces for offices and start-ups, educational and events spaces. Innovative also with its topological geometry giving a spiral effect to the high-rise, the Gran Mediterraneo breaks with the global and usual stacking of horizontal slabs wrapped with mirrored glass, aiming to renew Tel Aviv skyline with a ‘Unesco proclaimed white city’ specific vertical architecture. To be built with white concrete, using the latest construction and digital technologies, the curvy high-rise is filled with mediterranean and dead sea natures.

Hybrid Farm Apartment Building in New York by Weston Baker Creative Group

Thursday, August 25th, 2016

Article source: Weston Baker Creative Group

The Hybrid Farm Apartment Building is a new building type designed for cities, which offers farm space for locally grown produce as well as residences. This particular hybrid farm design also addresses local conditions at the High Line and positions the hybrid building within the general context of architecture in the area. The geometry of the building adjusts to the angle of the sun throughout the day. Only the top of the building sees the morning sun because of the height of the surrounding buildings in Chelsea. As the sun comes across the sky to the West, the building twists to evenly distribute daylight throughout the day. The farm terraces are accessible by residents of the apartments on each floor. There is a public observation garden on the top floor and an art gallery on the second floor, both accessible from the High Line.

Haus Dolomitenblick in Sexten, Italy by Plasma Studio

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016

Article source: Plasma Studio

The building is located on a hillside in the Dolomites, at the end of a residential area.

The volume has been developed mainly from its pragmatic functional request to host 6 independent apartments with one common circulation: through a cut that marks the main access and the division of the units the volume is splitted into 2 halves. Besides its functional meaning this incision becomes the main defining element of the building: from the cut at either side a strip unfolds that forms the balustrade of a generous covered balcony and ends into the surrounding topography. Following the steep natural hillside with each floor the strips and the façade jump back.
