Clara & Robert in Dusseldorf Derendorf, Germany by slapa oberholz pszczulny I architekten

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

Article source: slapa oberholz pszczulny I architekten 

On a corner plot of the former Uhlan barracks in the Derendorf district of Dusseldorf stands the building ensemble Clara & Robert, by slapa oberholz pszczulny architekten, which links the two new buildings with the historical Saarhaus.

The Wilhelmine barracks, erected in 1890 and currently among the largest remaining barracks facilities in the Rhineland, were given new life through comprehensive renovation and expansion. The Clara & Robert office complex builds on the location’s architectural history, while the preservation of the expressive Saarhaus, which is being integrated into one of the new buildings, restores the link to the former barracks.

Chesapeake Car Park One in Oklahoma City by Elliott + Associates Architects

Sunday, March 12th, 2017

Article source: Elliott + Associates Architects

Exterior Appearance

The exterior of the building features staggered metal panels which function to screen views of the vehicles and provide airflow to qualify the building as an open parking structure. Internal ramps and screening vehicles from view is visually harmonious with the adjacent structures. The metal panels match details on the adjoining office building.  Brise soleil on the west side of the garage visually connects the adjoining office building. Horizontal panels vary in size, with 6” slats at ground level for human scale, and change to 1’, 2’ and 4’ widths as they rotate around the façade and add texture. There is no exterior lighting on the building. Internal lighting glows between horizontal panels.

Fernando Abbott 866 in Porto Alegre, Brazil by Arquitetura Nacional

Tuesday, March 7th, 2017

Article source: Arquitetura Nacional

The building is located in the city of Porto Alegre. The traditional neighborhood is going through a transition process – the old houses are given way to small and medium sized buildings. The site is located on a corner with a very interesting view of the city and the airport. However, being at a high altitude level, it is strongly influenced by the municipality laws.

PLICO at the Flatiron in Oklahoma City by Elliott + Associates Architects

Tuesday, March 7th, 2017

Article source: Elliott + Associates Architects

Built in 1924 by C.F. Meadors and originally the Como Hotel, this historic blond brick flatiron stood vacant and boarded up for 27 years.  We have been waiting for 20 years for the opportunity to bring this corner to its full potential.  We believe this corner should be the site of an enduring building, a lantern at the east gateway to downtown Oklahoma City.

The project includes the renovation of the two-level flatiron building and the construction of a modern, yet complimentary rooftop addition.

Tuesday, March 7th, 2017

Article source: Office Winhov

The restoration and transformation for the former Kas Bank building will rejuvenate this national monument converting it into a five-star W hotel. The building, originally designed by F.W.M. Poggenbeek in 1908 was expended in phases until 1932. The building follows the classical typology of bank buildings with vaults on the ground floor and basement, a monumental bank hall on the first floor and offices above. The building is one of the first concrete constructions in the Netherlands and is finished with a sandstone facade.
