Headquarter Post AG in Vienna, Austria by HOLODECK architects

Saturday, December 17th, 2016

Article source: HOLODECK architects

The new headquarters of the Austrian Post AG is embedded in the urban context by inclusion of surrounding buildings, urban street connections and local conditions. Additionally, the building is structurally complemented by the public space and the courtyards. Different roof top gardens on the 6th floor and several terraces on some floors offer the employees inspiration and recovery. The integration in the urban context is guided by the intention to take in consideration the surrounding existing buildings’ typologies, the street connections with the 3rd Viennese district as well as several local data. The construction body takes shape in relation with the surrounding building blocks with inner courts, the existing telecom building, the neighbouring apartment house AMS, low rise buildings and the Grete-Jost-Park.

Jaegersborg Watertower in Klampenborg, Denmark by Dorte Mandrup Architects ApS

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

Article source: Dorte Mandrup Architects ApS

Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter ApS won in 2004 the competition to convert Jægersborg Water Tower into a mixeduse building. On the upper floors, student housing units mark the perimeter of the existing structure. Each unit is expressed by a protruding crystal-like add-on that brings daylight into the apartment, and offers unobstructed views to the surrounding landscape. Together, the crystals and the communal balconies add both a human scale, and a new sculptural layer, that emphasizes the landmark character of the tower. The lower floors are inhabited by a youth center, and contain several large multipurpose rooms. A combination of tall windows and colored panels create a varied pattern that surrounds the youth center. Large garage-style doors on the ground floor open up to extend the active indoor space into the outdoor playground.

Konterra in Gurgaon, India by SWBI Architects Pvt. Ltd

Friday, December 9th, 2016

Article source: SWBI Architects Pvt. Ltd

As one meanders through the busy bustling roads of Udyog Vihar commercial hub in Phase 4, one really can’t miss the imposing terracotta cladded edifice with its imposing presence around the corner. The address neighborhood has found its landmark in the form of 505, Udyog Vihar called Konterra.

Located at a prominent location of Udyog Vihar at the gateway of Gurgaon near the bygone toll plaza off NH-8, Konterra is at a stone throw distance from Indira Gandhi International Airport – IGI Airport, with just a mere 10 minutes from the airport. That’s a perfect location for the travelling working professionals in Konterra to enjoy a sweet ride where their not-so-blessed compatriots are struggling to get to the airport from other locations. It can veritably be garlanded as the best location in Udyog Vihar, easily accessible from NH-8. Flanked by NH-8 and the Old Delhi Gurgaon Road, Konterra’s residents enjoy a twin commutable spine which otherwise is a terrific boon to already road strapped users in Gurugram.

Nieuwdok NDSM in Amsterdam, The Netherlands by Moke Architecten

Thursday, December 8th, 2016

Article source: Moke Architecten

The site of NDSM Nieuwdok site is a former ship dock area at the waterfront of Amsterdam Noord in the Netherlands. The area is currently largely derelict and used by early adapters, like Greenpeace, Red Bull and MTV. The remaining monumental industrial buildings allocate small creative businesses and workshops, while new bars and hip festivals indicate the potential attraction of the area. They are signs of what is about to happen, as in the coming years the area will be transformed into a diverse urban area, with housing, office space, hotels and the like, all with a staggering density. Surrounded by the IJ River and some remaining docks, the water has a strong impact on the site and provides beautiful views.
