South Lowell Apartments in DENVER, COLORADO by Workshop 8 Architecture

Sunday, February 16th, 2014

Article source: Workshop 8 Architecture 

The S. Lowell Apartments owned by the Denver Housing Authority (DHA) was an aging family site that had reached its useful life span. It had leaking pipes causing mold, structural damage and inefficient heat for both the units and domestic hot water. As with any prudent developer, the goal was to use the site for its highest and best use at the most affordable cost. Working together, WORKSHOP8 and Pinkard Construction helped the DHA find a way to obtain 96 units using the existing units and adding 28 additional units, saving them $5M over the estimated cost of tearing the existing structure down and rebuilding 96 new units, the maximum allowed based on City parking requirements.

The King Fahad National Library, one of the most important cultural buildings in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, was completed and went into use for its intended purpose in November 2013. This project sees Professor Eckhard Gerber and his Gerber Architekten team accomplishing one of the most important urban development and cultural projects in the capital, Riyadh. The design functions as the central driving force behind a piece of urban development and rearrangement, and combines the challenge of designing within the existing building stock with respect for Arabian culture.

This project involves the building of a block of 18 premises for habitation purposes next to the Óbidos Lake in the future site of the Golf and Country Club – Quinta do Bom Sucesso.

These will be located in one of the far sides of the Quinta with a valley to the east, one of the access roads to the west, a thicket to the south and a group of dwellings to the north. Our proposal is to build on this site, the central theme being that each premise should have an interactive relationship with the surrounding area, under the following conditions

Art-Palace by TOTEMENT | PAPER

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

Article source: TOTEMENT | PAPER

The main task of this project, to our opinion, is creation of a new city contexture resolving a visual conflict between the image of modern European city (with the “Izmailovo” hotel complex constituting a part of it) a new growth (rather interesting to the public and a brand identity of the area) that does not blend in the city situation where original historical and cultural monuments are less sizable and more chamber, rather than the grandiose historical stylization.

Our customer wanted to build a one-storey family house with attic on a currently built-up corner lot in Dunakeszi, a suburban residential area situated on the bank of the Danube.

At the time of design, the lot was already built-up with a high pitched roof brick building and a wooden frame outbuilding on it. These buildings were demolished.
