The Bibliothèque du Boisé in Québec, Canada by Consortium Labonté Marcil / Cardinal Hardy / Eric Pelletier architectes

Saturday, November 15th, 2014

Article source: Consortium Labonté Marcil / Cardinal Hardy / Eric Pelletier architectes

The Bibliothèque du Boisé aims to become a place fostering a feeling of belonging, promoting exploration and discovery. Located between Thimens Boulevard and the Marcel-Laurin Park, it covers a surface area of 5,000 m² and is integrated into the site by drawing on its major elements. This isn’t a project about architecture alone: it’s also about landscape. As such, the building connects the city with the surrounding landscape, and serves as a point of connection that allows users to explore its site—inside and outside, from Boulevard Thimens as well as from the park. Visitors will discover the building by approaching it from a variety of spaces both intimate and dramatic, spaces that, by offering a variety of access pathways, set the stage for the site as well as for its users.

Hidden Flashes in San Jose, Costa Rica by Benjamin Garcia Saxe Architecture

Saturday, November 1st, 2014

Article source: Benjamin Garcia Saxe Architecture

A solid, natural, and warm object makes us question what is inside. Soft lines, symmetrical composition, plotted openings, and small rays of light peek inside. The thrill of slipping between pointillism in each sharp element contrasts with the tranquility and passivity of light reflected in its shadow; a double faced complexity.

Komachi Building in Tokyo, JAPAN by Akira Koyama + KEY OPERATION INC.

Friday, October 17th, 2014

Article source: Akira Koyama + KEY OPERATION INC.

Facing a street near the JR Ebisu Station circle, the property is a restaurant building principally envisioned for tenants purveying Japanese cuisine. A compact lot of 76 m2 called for securing the most possible tenant floor space. The sky occupancy factor, which would limitthe permitted obstruction of visible sky from land around the lot, was utilized in a study to determine how to gain the most cubic volume for a building. Consequently, the building configuration was set at six levels: tenant space of 48 m2 per level up to the fourth floor with a setback of 50 cm, andan additional setback for the fifth and sixth floors.
