What surprises people most when entering and walking on the glowing white surface in this particular Private Residence (Williamsburg, VA) is when they find out they are walking on a sea of glass! Yes, GLASS! Not marble, not granite, but GLASS! Nathan Allan has created a very fresh, unique flooring surface, which is smooth to touch on the majority of the glass surface, yet has an almost invisible safety finish permanently embedded in the glass surface.

Steel making is a sophisticated process. Extruding, rolling, extending—the dynamic flow gives birth to the basic element of modern building structure, the steel bar. A primary goal of our project was to capture the suddenness of the motion, a moment that sustains pressure, force, and heat. The complexity is reflected in the building’s multifaceted function, encompassing areas for administration and accommodation as well as a canteen, auditorium, and gallery. Moreover, a narratively arranged visitors’ route is integrated into the building’s circulation system. These features also shape the buildings and connecting bridge.

At this time when industrial society changes to cultural era, we started this project to turn on the cultural switch by building a building, just as putting a book in a empty shelf. Driving along Gyeongin Expressway to go through Gajwa Interchange, you will meet Gajwa-dong, a town in Incheon, South Korea. This town took sea in the old days.

Situated on the Ocean’s coastline at a corner of an ancient fishpond, this private residence reflects the culture of the Hawaiian Islands by embracing its lush surroundings. The clients sought a modern expression that drew inspiration from their Japanese heritage, without being overly imitative or contrived. This influence is often subtle, manifesting itself through an attention to detail, an affinity for craftsmanship, and a delight in natural materials.

On Kop Zuidas in the south of Amsterdam the scaffolding of project Square has been dismantled, revealing the nicely detailed masonry of the outer façade. Square is a compact residential building with 111 mid-market rental apartments. With its on-site restaurant and young inhabitants, Square will serve as a lively center-spot for this new neighborhood between the Rivierenbuurt, RAI and Amstelpark. A linden tree has recently been planted in the inner courtyard, soon to be a showpiece of 8 metres tall. The gate will be enriched with an art piece, a filigree fence with bronze linden branches. At the beginning of May, the new inhabitants will move into their new homes.

The new neighborhood with single-family homes and apartments is typical for the current restructuring task of post-war housing estates. Right next to the centre of Hoofddorp a 50’s and 60’s district with building strips will be transformed. Urban planning and architecture refer to the classic feeling of a garden village with living in a relaxed setting. The architecture follows the village grain and sober architecture that characterizes the post-war expansions around the centre of Hoofddorp. Green pedestrian courtyards bind the blocks and form the neighborhood. Yet the plan has a high density that appeals to its proximity to the urban centre.
