2211 Cambie – South Creek Landing in Vancouver, Canada by Arno Matis Architecture

Monday, February 19th, 2018

Article source: Arno Matis Architecture

A once forgotten site sitting adjacent a new underground rapid transit line, this project sits on the southern gateway of Vancouver’s grand Cambie boulevard.

Designed to capture the vortex energy of the neighbouring bridgehead, building vocabulary is sweeping and spiraled to capture this energy created by the adjacent bridge ramps. Edges are curved and fragmented to evoke the idea of movement, as if the energy of the street itself is pealing the surfaces of the building apart. The building turns its corners in prow-like forms that track sun-angles and provide passive horizontal and vertical sun-shading.

Facette in Bordeaux, France by Studioninedots

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017

Article source: Studioninedots 

Studioninedots proudly presents: Facette, a collective and future-proof mixed-use office building in the heart of Bordeaux’s new district Belvédère.
To create an accessible building on the central axis of Boulevard Joliot-Curie, with an active, inviting ground floor for both occupants and passersby, the surrounding public spaces are literally drawn into the building. This results in a transparent and sculptural ‘rez-de-chaussée’ (ground floor). This typology, which Studioninedots calls WeSpace, functions as a collective, versatile space for working, leisure and meeting. This WeSpace is an extension of both the workplace and the public space.
