Novell Ikebana was planned as a housing development that would cater to the economic and mid-premium segment. It is located in the outskirts of NCR, right off NH8, near the Japanese industrial zone in Neemrana. It was conceived as a utilitarian and functionality-driven housing scheme that will set new benchmarks in housing design in the rapidly developing B-towns in North India. Yet, within the design, there are provisions, avenues, methods and expressions that allow for lifestyle and design to be incorporated artistically and tastefully.

Designs for ‘The Towers by Foster + Partners’, a new residential development in the heart of Miami, were revealed last week. The tallest building south of Manhattan on the East Coast, it has been envisioned as an elegant addition to the Miami skyline with two landmark towers that redefine how high rise buildings are woven into the fabric of the city.

Housing development in Denver is booming, especially in the newly revitalized River North (RiNo) neighborhood of Denver. Unlike the majority of apartment buildings in the area, Dynia Architects’ Freight Residences rejects the typical models of development. The building has a sense of intimacy and privacy, reduces the homogony of multifamily development, and targets the underserved urban family market.

Rennes dates back to the 18th century and is organised around two main squares, the place de la Marie and the place du Parlement. In the centre, old and new coexist together with Gallo-Roman remains, Louis Arretche’s futuristic Le Mabilais, Georges Maillols’s Les Horizons and more recently, the residential Cap Mail by Jean Nouvel. This Métropole is among the most attractive areas to live in France and its diversity of heritage and growth led to a shift in emphasis from the centre to the city’s outer areas connected by the pedestrianised Mail François Mitterrand. This move from a rural to urban context has meant denser developments occurring at the edges, to prevent encroachment onto the countryside. The growth in population and industry has called for measures to cope with future change, most notably for more housing and efficient transport routes. MVRDV, ALL and Giboire respond to this need for more sustainable housing communities and will contribute to the expansion of the centre by breathing new life and refocusing communities along the rivers.

12 degrees was designed as an urban infill project, fitting into the context of a mixed use residential area where the city block has buildings that include both the Art Gallery of Ontario and the Ontario College of Art and Design.
Given the artistic nature of the city block, the design became a playful exercise in massing and an anchor to the south-west corner of the block. The design can be read as analogous to the stacking of toy blocks, with one of the blocks skewed at 12 degrees from the others.

As one of the first new residential buildings in the Carroll Gardens neighborhood, Sackett Union was designed to complement the fabric of the historic neighborhood. The new design provides a modern take on the housing developments of 19th century New York City and its boroughs, which organically mixed apartments with retail and townhouses.

Kendrick Place is a privately-developed student housing and residential project with retail on the ground floor, providing 104 beds. The site is at the northernmost end of downtown Amherst, and marks the boundary between the city’s urban commercial storefront district and the University of Massachusetts campus. Holst designed Kendrick to respond to its Gateway site, and to provide a link between the university and downtown.

Smart environment for young and young-at-heart home living on the outskirts of the city in a post-industrial complex. Strategies for creating community: this starts with identification through the design and continues with the quarter’s connecting ring structure and the belt formed by the wall surrounding the property, with special communication areas reflecting the layering principle of the building. A residential building as smart module of social life: tiered and networked communal zones and communication areas create the village in the buildings, and special extra spaces for whatever self-development is to be defined in the surrounding homes connect the private with the (semi-) public sphere. A building as a very flexible structure able to inspire the imagination and joie de vivre.
