This is a Sauna and relax building in Saltsjöbaden just outside Stockholm.
Saltsjöbaden community was founded in the 1890’s with the goal of creating a society close to nature following the example of central European spas, but near the nature and the sea with the possibility of boat and outdoor activities.
The villas built there was relatively large to fit the growing group of people with a good economy around the turn of the century.

“What is Vietnamese building culture?” This question is asked in a country the architecture of which was for many years defined by the former colonial powers, France and Japan, and by the separation of the country into North and South Vietnam with the two capitals, Hanoi and Saigon.

The building is located in the Colonia Roma, a historic neighbourhood in the central sector of Mexico City. La Roma developed in the 19th century as one of the first extensions of the city centre, with an orthogonal grid of large houses inhabited by the upper classes of the city. With the emergence of suburban life in the 50s, la Roma decreased its population throughout the second half of the 20th century, getting to its worst with earthquake of 1985. Due to the location of la Roma in what once was Lake Texcoco, the subsoil is highly muddy, so seismic waves are amplified; thus, during the strong earthquake of 85, la Roma was one of the more affected areas of the city: many buildings collapsed, and many of those which resisted were abandoned by its inhabitants because of their structural damage or because of the fear that the buildings would not resist another earthquake. The neighbourhood became deeply deteriorated, with high levels of insecurity and abandoned buildings, until its recent re-emergence as one of the most active areas of the city, filled with art galleries, small restaurants, cafés and young people occupying again its streets and public areas.

Building “image”, symbolic and copy, the project is in its form and purpose, to meet these requirements : the visitor should immediately understand the nature, the DNA, of the building. Emblematic bio climatic elements serve to the project and not the reverse.
They shape the project as well as the traditional components (wall, etc. roof). 3 requirements, 3 heights, 1 main entrance: it is the pragmatic application of the combined program bio climatic approach that guides the design of the project.

With the provision of a casual description and partial floor plan of the residential building’s lobby and adjacent networking cafe, Radlab was asked to create an interior installation composed of two slatted walls. Knowing the dimensional constraints of the walls (8’ tall x 14’ long), our design strategy began with a preoccupation in the role of a wall as an architectural tool, fully circumscribed by open, public space, yet capable of creating moments of privacy.

The urban renewal triggered by the first phase of the Antara mixed-use development (2006) was one of the single most significant actions in the north-west of Mexico City. It elicited a new urban order that completely changed the profile of the area, increasing the real estate value, promoting densification and attracting capital investment. Maintaining this same outlook, Antara proceeded to develop the second phase of its master plan, divided into two stages: (1) Antara Corporate Building I and (2) Antara Corporate Building II. These adjacent buildings are located on the north-western side of the complex.
