Hangzhou Gateway in People’s Republic of China by JDS Architects

Friday, June 17th, 2011

Article source: JDS Architects

The concept of the building is to create a gateway that is neither closing-off or dividing the city. The 15-story tower features offices, restaurants, post office, a terraced roof garden and a sunken passage that leads through a shopping center. The rooftop terraces offer generous views to the distant nature while the stone louvers provide a sustainable solution to the office conditions. The building will become the gateway for the Gongshu District and an icon for the urban transformation of the old industrial neighborhood.

Zavrtnica business and residential building in Zagreb, Croatia by Studio za Arhitekturu

Sunday, June 12th, 2011

Article source: Studio za Arhitekturu

The location of the planned construction is part of the central city area where transformation of the existing building structure is in process. Thanks to its position, next to the railway line, by the beginning of the last century this area was selected for construction of different industrial complexes, warehouses, and public services. During the last ten years, this transformation has intensified, with the tendency of replacing industrial and public service facilities with pronouncedly high-rise structures, built in corresponding standards.

Business and residential building in Nova Cesta, Zagreb, Republic of Croatia by SZA

Sunday, June 12th, 2011

The verge of the very city centre encourages free defining of the content and the intensity of activities. The proximity of the railway, a sports centre with a large parking lot, and a block structure with residential verticals provide the entire area with pronouncedly urban character. The new hybrid structure is complex and multilayered, but unfortunately limited in height by the brief.

The dynamic structure of pyramidal forms, which interchangeably open towards the north and the south is the basis of the entire complex. These elements stretch horizontally, equally through all underground and surface levels. Open spaces, narrow clefts, ramps and slanting ceilings enable communication throughout the centre, establishing a series of separate entrances, but also ensuring the possibility of airing and natural light in a large part of work areas.

Situated on a compact sub-5 acre parcel in a developing urban area of Scottsdale, Arizona, the new Dial/Henkel headquarters is an innovative collaborative center, completely integrated into its broader context of the Sonoran desert. The building is conceived as a crystalline cloud floating over a desert mesa, a graceful presence at the prominent intersection of Scottsdale Road and the 101 freeway.

Azzano-San Paolo Master Plan in Bergamo, Italy by Asymptote Architect

Friday, May 27th, 2011

Article source: Asymptote Architect

Bergamo, Italy—
Asymptote Architecture’s design for the Azzano-San Paolo Master Plan, a 100,000-square-meter commercial development, was recently unveiled at the MAPIC international retail real estate conference in Cannes, France. The site for the new master plan is an area south of Orio al Serio International Airport near the historic city center of Bergamo in Northern Italy. The master plan, as conceived by Asymptote, is a meandering and intriguingly articulated collection of surfaces that seem to have evolved naturally from the adjacent farmlands and calls for powerful, yet subtle, new architectural works placed on an urban plinth. Overall, the Azzano-San Paolo Master Plan is a signal for the possibility of such developments to be aesthetically compelling and architecturally dynamic.

Nuova Sede Centro Edile Andrea Palladio in Vicenza, Italy by OFL Architecture

Wednesday, May 18th, 2011

The new Andrea Palladio Building Center is made of a structural skin evoking nature, like tree branches that by weaving themselves create a dynamic façade made of steel and glass. The arches on the ground floor evoke the architecture of the Renaissance, and suggest the idea of an ethical and emotional architecture. Steel and glass together, combined as something organic and dynamic, allow the building to be in harmony with the context. The shielding front is made of mirror glass panels with a thickness of 10 mm. They have the double function of reflecting the natural environment and protecting the building from the sun. The glazed turbots, generated by the external structure, and the plastic tubes that pervade the entire building have been designed in order to enable the sectors to obtain an adequate level of lighting comfort.

225 North Fourth Lofts in Columbus, OH by Jonathan Barnes Architecture & Design

Wednesday, May 18th, 2011

This project involves the conversion of a four-story 19th Century commercial building on a tight urban lot to residential and commercial use and the replacement of a non-contributing single story adjacent structure with an infill building for residential use and parking.  The conversion consists of 6 residential units (2 per floor) above a 3,000 square foot commercial office space while the new structure accommodates 5 residential units (2 per floor with a full floor penthouse unit) and parking at the first floor.  An elevator and egress stairs are shared by both structures.
