Parque El Virrey Building in Bogotá, Colombia by Daniel Bonilla Arquitectos

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013

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.

Article source: Lake|Flato Architects

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.

Article source: BNIM

Located within the State of Iowa Capitol Complex, this project is an infill development on the 6-acre site of a former landfill. As a gateway to the complex at its Southeast corner, the project is a figural and literal threshold to the powerful example of government — supported by location and by its demonstration of replicable strategies for performance and savings. It further proves that the challenge of elegant design and exemplary performance can be solved even within limited budgets.

SERO in Lleida, Spain by Estudi D’arquitectura Toni Gironès

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

Article source: Estudi D’arquitectura Toni Gironès

During the January of 2007, the construction works of a secondary pipe of the water distribution mains in Segarra-Garrigues system, caused an unexpected appearance of archaeological ruins from an ancient construction for 4.800 years in Seró (Artesa de Segre, Lleida). The most important point of this discovery was the megalithic nature of sandstone slabs and specially the accuracy of geometrical decoration sculpted. Stones with soft relief that, at the same time, were parts of ancient statues reused from a previous sculptural monument.

Farm Building Renovation in Alsace, France by Loïc Picquet Architecte

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

Article source: Loïc Picquet Architecte

The project created 4 lodging rooms in a farm building in Alsace. A new wood construction was added as a natural and fluid extension of the old farm, not only renovating it but mostly honoring it by the use of its history and details. There by, niches were built in the walls and double doors were chosen over the regular ones, so that a special interaction between the bathroom and the room could be created. The room set is illuminated by Velux windows, drilling in an almost artificial way the old building envelop.
