CB30 in Mexico City, Mexico by Dellekamp Arquitectos

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

Article source: Dellekamp Arquitectos

This building has 3 apartments looking unto the street as well as a 2 stories house in the back that lives to an interior patio. Due to the different needs of each client, the apartments have different floor plans. However the public areas concentrate in the front allowing it to become one single space, creating continuity with the exterior. There is a spectacular tree in front of the building, which became an object of design for the interior, as well as for the façade. By working with structural geometry, we managed to support the 15mt span with no columns that would obstruct the view to the exterior; we then sharpened the floor slabs and walls to the minimum, disappearing their edges in the façade.

Saturday, March 30th, 2013

Article source: Peter Lorenz Ateliers

A SIMPLE CUBE RESPONDING TO THE EXISTENT NATURE&ARCHITECTURE: Innsbruck’s central park, the astonishing RIVER INN and the impressing mountain “North Chain”.

Peter lorenz ateliers won the competition unanimously and convinced the client with a technological futuristic concept: open glass façade with “intelligent” sunscreens and individual maximized workplaces. The simple cube is being “sculptured” according to the needs of the entrance and the integration into the context – one city spot of extraordinary beauty. The client is the “Austrian motorway provider” and is keen to realize one of Europe’s most ecological and low energy buildings: 18kw/m2/year maintaining a very high “atmospheric & climate standard”.

Vent Vert by Edward Suzuki Associates Inc

Thursday, March 28th, 2013

Article source: Edward Suzuki Associates Inc

VENT VERT is Green Wind in French. As the name suggests, the thrust of the design was to add a new spirit of green to not only the new building but also the surrounding commercial environment. The building sits near the end of a busy shopping street called Azabu Juban where green is rather scarce. For this reason, the green façade was employed as an eye-catcher especially in light of the fact that the building stands at the corner of a bend in the street and highly visible from afar on the approach road.

The building acts as a catalyst for future development around the abandoned mining lake, and is a reminder of the glory days of tin mining in the country.

Rebière 21 Housing in Paris, France by Hondelatte Laporte Architectes

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013

Article source: Hondelatte Laporte Architectes

The building is part of a major and innovative operation to improve the urban environment around Porte Pouchet bordering on Paris (17th district), the Parisian ring road, Clichy and Saint-Ouen. Nine teams of architects worked together to create 180 housing units, as part of a workshop named “Autrement Rue Rebière” and chaired by Paris Habitat and Périphériques architects. The idea of narrowing the section of Rue Rebière that runs alongside the Parisian Batignolles cemetery leads to recovery a strip of almost 600m in length and 12.60m in width.

Vitapharm Office and Distribution Building in Murska Sobota, Slovenia by Studio Kalamar d.o.o.

Saturday, March 23rd, 2013

Article source: Studio Kalamar d.o.o.

Following the expansion of their production, the company pharmaceuticals company Galex commissioned a new structure adjacent to their existing laboratories building from 1999. Connected with the old building by an overhang, the new structure houses offices on the upper floor and manipulation areas on the ground floor. Its pronounced horizontal form echoes the outline of surrounding wheat fields, the natural setting also influences the subdued selection of materials and colour scheme: concrete elevations are complemented by details in black and silver metal.
