SCHAUMAN & NORDGREN ARCHITECTS and SCHAUMAN ARKKITEHDIT are announced winners of the invited masterplan competition for the transformation of waterfront area of Pargas in Finland. The jury awarded the proposal “Pargas Maritime Limestone Landscape” a first prize
The city of Pargas is developing the area of the existing guest harbour in the southern centre of the city – Malmstrand beach – into an attractive living room for the inhabitants as well as a high class harbour with services. At the end of 2016 the city invited three teams to develop a long term vision for the harbour front. The assignment was to find a logical and natural, but at the same time an innovative solution for how the area could become a functional and aesthetically pleasing environment. Together the functions and activities were supposed to create an inviting entity that strengthens the character of Pargas small scale cityscape, while at the same time emphasizing its maritime identity. The proposals were to introduce a solution for how to the functions, such as a hotel. harbour office, sauna, beach promenades, playgrounds, car parking and beach could be integrated into a coherent and strong entity.

Design Hotel Hyatt Regency stands at the tip of the harbour basin in Dusseldorf’s Media Harbour, one of the city’s architectural signposts. sop architekten realised its Hafenspitze master plan along Speditionstraße, which includes a pedestrian bridge, two glass towers, a pavilion and a seven-storey office building.
The 65-metre high double high-rise – with the hotel in the east building – expresses a strongly reduced formal language. The timeless, tension-filled architecture springs solely from the form of the buildings’ main bodies and their juxtaposition with one another. As a result, the two parallel high-rise slabs create a virtual cube, which develops a sculptural quality through its various sections and interstitial spaces.

Built in 1924 by C.F. Meadors and originally the Como Hotel, this historic blond brick flatiron stood vacant and boarded up for 27 years. We have been waiting for 20 years for the opportunity to bring this corner to its full potential. We believe this corner should be the site of an enduring building, a lantern at the east gateway to downtown Oklahoma City.
The project includes the renovation of the two-level flatiron building and the construction of a modern, yet complimentary rooftop addition.

The restoration and transformation for the former Kas Bank building will rejuvenate this national monument converting it into a five-star W hotel. The building, originally designed by F.W.M. Poggenbeek in 1908 was expended in phases until 1932. The building follows the classical typology of bank buildings with vaults on the ground floor and basement, a monumental bank hall on the first floor and offices above. The building is one of the first concrete constructions in the Netherlands and is finished with a sandstone facade.

Paço de Vitorino is a manor house located in the north of Portugal that has been in the same family since the mid-16th century. It’s history is marked several relevant events. The most outstanding dates from the mid-18th century when a major intervention occurred according to baroque canons. The resulting structure is characterized by a three stories main house on the east side, two lateral wings on the north and south side and a small chapel along the entrance wall on the west. These elements delineate a central large yard defined by adorned facades.
