Skyone Tower – A legend in the sky by M/s Creative Group

Friday, June 19th, 2015

Article source: M/s Creative Group

In today’s day and age, most of the architecture that surrounds us becomes a kind of background hum, to be noticed only when it is exceptionally striking. When our eyes move around in our surroundings, do we notice the box-shaped edifices that existed in the past or that one building that irks our imagination? The answer is clear and undeniable. A structure that speaks volumes through its design, the Skyone Tower reinforces the term “standing out in a crowd.” An inception of the Creative Group, the curious architects wanted to innovate a building that not only sustains the ability to influence the emotions of the human mind but also encapsulates functionality.

Colombia_325 in São Paulo, Brazil by TRIPTYQUE

Saturday, June 13th, 2015

Article source: TRIPTYQUE

Situated in the Jardins, a neighborhood that is undergoing radical change, in an avenue of intense traffic, this building, facing north, appears as an organic incarnation of the urban and natural “aggressions” suffered by a tropical city. The noise, the insulation and the intense traffic are the building materials that feed this project. In spite of its important aspect, the building is not  blind or deaf, but was born from the energy of its context, and uses it to re-qualify itself, as if in a boomerang effect .

The Barney Building in Mission Woods, Kansas by RMTA

Article source: RMTA

LEED Gold 2014 AIA Kansas Excellence in Architecture Honor Award

Long-time client Karbank Real Estate approached RMTA to generate design schematics for this 1968 commercial office building they were considering purchasing. Attracted to the mid-century character of this particular building and it’s prime location in town, the client wanted to re-use the existing structure. The design team was charged with maintaining that character while completely renovating and modernizing the 32,000-square-foot building.

Extrude in Gyeonggi-do, South Korea by studio_GAON

Saturday, May 16th, 2015

Article source: studio_GAON

The site is near Han-river in Changwoo-dong, located at the city boundary of Hanam. It was left unused because many decades ago, the road along the river had been widened, making this land end in a weird shape. The land looked like a last piece of round pizza or a cheese cake piece on a neat dish. Because of the form, the land remained empty until we intervened. When we visited the site with the clients, it felt as if the land beckoned us to make use of it. This triangular area was about 123㎡, and after we offset and extruded the shape of the land, it became a triangular prism with 70㎡ of possible building area.

Weleda North America by Specht Harpman

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

Article source: Specht Harpman

Specht Harpman designed Weleda’s North American headquarters within the shell of a 19th-century factory along the Hudson River. One primary design intention was to expose and highlight the raw beauty of the original heavy timber structure, its brick walls, and large windows. Our interventions respect the character of the original building, while clearly registering a new use.

Sin El Fil in Beirut, Lebanon by SOMA Architects

Thursday, April 9th, 2015

Article source: SOMA Architects

The three volumes of the mixed use compound are situated in Sin el Fil, Lebanon, near an important junction of highways and major roadways to the East of Beirut. The site also provides panoramic views toward the center of Beirut to the East and to the mountains to the West. In order to take advantage of this unique location, and the panoramic views, the project is conceived as three volumes arrayed about a central focal point in the center of the site. Each volume is in turn chamfered toward the outside, creating terraces toward their respective views, while on the ground floor, the buildings chamfer in, creating impressive cantilevers and freeing up large areas of outdoor space. The building directly along the highway serves as an office tower with a large retail base extending along the highway, while the other two buildings provide apartments. This positioning creates three basic outdoor spaces: one for a public drop odd, one for a private drop off, and a third used as a playground and collective garden space.
