Porto Olimpico in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil by Girimun Architects

Tuesday, October 21st, 2014

Article source: Girimun Architects

As part of a package of investments for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, the regeneration of 85 hectares of land near the old docks will create more than 1 million sqm of apartments, hotels, office buildings and a convention centre. The project addresses two moments: the completion of support facilities for the 2016 Olympic Games (10,600-room accommodation for media and referees, a media-centre and 3 to 5-star hotels) and its transformation post-Games into a vibrant mixed-use extension of the city centre. A green loop circuit of public spaces embraces the whole master plan encouraging pedestrian and bicycle use by linking the various dissociated sites and connecting the whole area to the nearby waterfront of the revitalized docks.

Article source: Frei + Saarinen Architekten

In 2011, Zurich-based architects Frei + Saarinen won the competition to replace a “front building” that was damaged by a fire. The front-building is so called because it is attached to a triple gymnasium that is also used for events such as concerts, exhibitions, carnival, marriages (with up to 1000 guests), etc.

Castelo Branco Office Park in São Paulo, Brazil by Girimun Architects

Friday, October 10th, 2014

Article source: Girimun Architects

Taking the 2 existing buildings as a starting point, we have created a phased commercial development with additional 6 office and hotel towers in a total of 240,000 sqm stretching along 500m. The towers are laid out in a soft rotation angle from each other so to allow more space between them, guarantee open views, and create a dynamic outdoor inner space rich in landscape, water features, canopied walkways and supportive retail.  The later twin towers sit on a retail podium that gradually steps up amidst recreational open courtyards to overcome the existing 12m level gap on site.

Gubei Mixed-use Master Plan in Shanghai, China by Girimun Architects

Friday, October 10th, 2014

Article source: Girimun Architects

This master plan in West Shanghai capitalises on the potential synergy between various programmatic functions and urban transport network links to create a truly mixed-use environment with fully integrated business, shopping and entertainment activities. A large public space featuring event zones, amphitheatres, waterscapes and soft loans sits atop a double platform over an operative train depot. The technical complexities of the site and coordination with various existing infrastructures make of this development a remarkable achievement.

TherMitte by Nissen & Wentzlaff Architects BSA SIA AG

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

Article source:  Nissen & Wentzlaff Architects BSA SIA AG

Competition, 2004 – first place: There are three structures: a four-storey residential building along the Hauptstrasse, with a walkway which reduces noise levels, a separate structure within this unit to house the banking premises, and a three-storey residential unit parallel to the first at the rear of the plot. This layout creates an internal courtyard, which can be accessed through two generous entrances from the two neighboring streets, which also serve as entrances to the residential units behind and to the services housed on the ground floor. The buildings are enclosed in wooden latticework, creating a filigreed and calm membrane between the internal and external spaces.

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

Article source: Girimun Architects

This master plan project located in the Dongcheng District transforms the existing 16.5 ha site into a sustainable high density mixed-used urban park. A one-of-a-kind multi-level pedestrian link cuts through a typical Beijing block linking two major roads, metro and train stations. Office and SOHO towers, hotels, services apartments, and exclusive luxury residential towers emerge from a dune-like topography where shopping and cultural activities weave into a series of plazas, event spaces and sunken gardens.
