MEDIA HEADQUARTERS BUILDINGS by REX

Friday, April 18th, 2014

Two sister Middle Eastern media companies sought to create conjoined headquarters buildings. Aside from the companies’programmatic and area requirements for the headquarters, their demands were few: propose two elegant structures that make reference to traditional Arab architecture. The companies also provided a long, slender precedent structure—approximately 100 m (330 ft) long x 22 m (72 ft) wide—for consideration that could simultaneously accommodate offices and the relatively small broadcast / news studios. REX took this slender precedent as its starting point.

Caboto26 in Turin, Italy by raimondo guidacci architetto

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

Article source: raimondo guidacci architetto

The project concerns the construction of a small building in a courtyard in the center of Turin.

Actually this is the restoration of an old laboratory, used in the past as a Carpenter, and external storage.

The theme of recovery of low buildings placed inside courtyards represents an interesting opportunity to rethink the recovery of existing buildings (mostly targeting craft) aimed at the transformation of residential buildings with new spatial characteristics than those of the classic urban apartment.

Energy 

Two considerations formed the basis of our work. First, how can we maintain in the next thirty to forty years our quality of life and thereby conserve resources? The second, followed by the fundamental belief that we need to develop a home that reverses old fashioned mindsets: man no longer reacts to the house but the house to the man .For this we need much less equipment than is generally assumed. We have in 2226 no technical cooling, no heating, no additional ventilation but rather an intelligent software that controls heat output and natural air supply.
