Office Building with Retail Shops in Sylhet, Bangladesh by Formosis building studio

Sunday, February 1st, 2015

 Article source: Formosis building studio

Sylhet is a growing city. The city is expanding to the western part after the establishment of public university. The expansion has been boomed after the recent shifting of City Central Jail and Marine academy there. The area is commercializing very fast with time. To meet the growing demand of more built spaces, the land owners have been involved to develop infrastructures at that part of Sylhet city. Reputed architecture firm Formosis building studio has recently designed a commercial building at that sub-urban area at Temukhi. The building is located beside the way to Central Jail and Marine Academy. The building includes four large shops at ground floor and office spaces at first and second floor. The building has been designed in white outlook to create it as a striking sub-urban landmark within green surroundings.

“There is a legend about King’s daughter Roze who still lives underneath the Rezekne castle mound and waits for the one to bring her into the world… Meanwhile a wizard came on the other side and lifted the earth up.

Article source: Solearth Ecological Architecture 

Airfield is a 35-acre working farm and estate located in the southern suburbs of Dublin, open to the public since 1998; it is an area of pastureland, woodland and walled gardens into which a patchwork of buildings has been introduced focused on Airfield House itself, which was the Over end family home from 1894. Airfield Trust was established in 1974 by the Overend sisters, Letitia and Naomi, as a charitable organisation with an educational and recreational remit provided through an environment connecting people and nature through the farm and gardens. To enhance the visitor experience and expand the facilities at Airfield a number of key spatial drivers have been put in place:

TIWAG POWER STATION CONTROL CENTRE WITH VISITOR CENTRE in Tirol, Austria by Bechter Zaffignani Architekten

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

Article source: Bechter Zaffignani Architekten

The new building for the power station control centre of Tiroler Wasserkraft AG in Silz is a massive, tower-like, free-standing building. The dominant building on the site was and still remains the old turbine building. Various additions reduced the impact made by this building, with the result that the high-energy processes on the power station site were no longer externally legible. Through the forma idiom it employs the new building attempts to depict these processes.

The Gables in London, England by Patalab Architecture

Article source: Patalab Architecture

The Gables is the reinterpretation of a former commercial compound comprising a mechanic’s office and garage, tucked away in a private courtyard behind a terrace of period properties in Primrose Hill, North London. Landlocked, the site presented an enormous challenge in the reuse of the original footprint, which has created a wonderful lateral two floor family home.
