Shipara in Bangalore, India by SDeG

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

Article source: SDeG

Shipara is a new office building tucked into a tight urban site with overbearing buildings on three sides. The front edge faces a lush park in liberating contrast. The programmatic functions are organized on alternating split levels. A circulation spiral orchestrates movement within the volume and links the various staff and management zones. Façade and roof apertures are strategically located to force natural light through, and swerve in different directions to capture defined views of foliage and tree-tops.

Article source: Daniel Bonilla Arquitectos

This small format residential building is located in a small plot in front of an urban park (El Virrey park). Its concept is the reinterpretation of the previously existing house architecture, consisting of a first floor basement and an overriding superposed box on the second floor. As part of the concept, it was repeated three times in order to create a sequence between mass and void.

Beethoven Building Entrance and Lobby Area in Barcelona, Spain by Archit3ctum

Thursday, May 16th, 2013

Article source: Archit3ctum

The renovation of lobby and common areas of Beethoven building Barcelona was a particular challenger for our studio because we want to give a very new image to the interior areas, with the idea of a contemporary and technological place. To carry out our task, we focus on creating a neutral space where the use of materials with high resistance and metallic colors could mark the perimeter and indicate the flow of the course.

After 10 years of leasing space in a suburban office building, the Livestrong Foundation found its permanent home in the 1950s-era Gulf Coast Paper Co. (GPC) warehouse in East Austin, an under-served community in the process of revitalization.The adaptive reuse of the GCP warehouse transformed the concrete tilt-wall building to provide office space, meeting rooms, multi-use facilities, an in-house gym, an open-air courtyard, and parking for the staff of 62. Ongoing plans call for adding a community-based cancer-support program to provide direct services, with an emphasis on uninsured and under insured East Austin residents.
