Enclave at the Cathedral in New York by HANDEL ARCHITECTS LLP

Thursday, December 22nd, 2016

Article source: HANDEL ARCHITECTS LLP

The Enclave at the Cathedral is a new residential development located on the property of Manhattan’s Cathedral of St. John the Divine. The Cathedral and its surrounding gardens and buildings form an 11.3-acre campus collectively referred to as “The Close.” The new residences sit on the site that formerly housed stone sheds used by skilled masons to cut the granite used to construct the Cathedral. Given the proximity of the new building to the Cathedral, the siting, massing, and design of the building were critical.

Transformation of an industrial building into a multifunctional space

At the beginning of 2016, BlueFocus Communication Group decided to develop a series of venues in multiple locations across Mainland China. The first was then established in Beijing, at the same location used for the Group’s Headquarters, a former Panasonic factory complex of recent renovation. Such a decision is an unmistakable reflection of the company’s priorities, to evolve in China from a manufacturing power into a creative force, under the leadership of its charismatic Chairman Mr. Zhao Wenquan.

CH-REURBANO in Mexico City by Cadaval & Solà-Morales

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

Article source: Cadaval & Solà-Morales

The project seeks to maintain the existing building as much as possible, as well as enhancing the value of its inherent construction properties. The proposal intends to broaden the official proposed conservation plan by committing to preservation international standards, where preservation goes beyond the façade and undertakes virtually the whole building. The idea is to go even further of the maintenance of the existing structure; the project seeks to preserve its ‘essence’. All the new additional construction elements are set up in harmony within the space, being discreet and allowing the prevailing to stand out.

Headquarter SVA in Vienna, Austria by HOLODECK architects

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

Article source: HOLODECK architects

The headquarter of the main association of the Austrian Social Insurance Fund is located in the third district, at Erdbergstrasse. The Wittgensteinhaus, the Rochusmarkt and the Grete Jostpark are important cultural buildings and urban areas arranged during site construction in 70s. In this high-quality context, we carefully place a spatial composition of the landscape park and building cubature. The vertical slice is proportionally supplemented by a horizontal slab and integrated the existing landscape park spatially and functionally. The inviting ground floor zone reaches the users and visitors over the extensive open space with shade-spreading trees or over the entrance along the Kundmanngasse. The naturally exposed hall provides a clear orientation and access to the areas.

Cinnamon Tower in Hamburg, Germany by BOLLES+WILSON GmbH & Co. KG

Tuesday, December 20th, 2016

Article source: BOLLES+WILSON GmbH & Co. KG

The Cinnamon tower was conceived as freestanding campanile – a pin on a piazza was the concept behind the premiated competition design by BOLLES+WILSON for the existing 19th century Harbour Masters Building.

A tower was not anticipated in the competition programme, but the jury agreed that a tower anchors the public functions around the only remaining historical building to survive between the megablocks of the ‘Overseas Quarter’ master plan. The historic building would thus be more autonomous.

Headquarter Post AG in Vienna, Austria by HOLODECK architects

Saturday, December 17th, 2016

Article source: HOLODECK architects

The new headquarters of the Austrian Post AG is embedded in the urban context by inclusion of surrounding buildings, urban street connections and local conditions. Additionally, the building is structurally complemented by the public space and the courtyards. Different roof top gardens on the 6th floor and several terraces on some floors offer the employees inspiration and recovery. The integration in the urban context is guided by the intention to take in consideration the surrounding existing buildings’ typologies, the street connections with the 3rd Viennese district as well as several local data. The construction body takes shape in relation with the surrounding building blocks with inner courts, the existing telecom building, the neighbouring apartment house AMS, low rise buildings and the Grete-Jost-Park.
