Avenue Leclerc office building in Boulogne-Billancourt, France by Agence AZC Atelier Zündel Cristea

Wednesday, March 15th, 2017

Article source: Agence AZC Atelier Zündel Cristea

The project consists of the renovation of an office existing building of 10.544 m², the redesign of the facade taking into account the overall structure, the renovation of the technical premises, and the optimizing of office planning. The building requires a new architectural point of departure; the new project is justified in light of the evolution of conditions of usage as well as regards energy standards. The idea of total flexibility is pursued throughout: through the uniform grid patterning of the facade paneling into 1.35m modules corresponding to the 1.35m modules of the suspended ceilings, and through the electrical and technical “irrigation” of the offices by means of raised floors. The building’s new image will form both out of restraint regarding the economy of means and the taking into account of the client’s expressed wishes and needs. Our proposition highlights generosity of space, light, comfort, transparency and wellbeing. The problem of energy will be approached subtly, with the aim of upgrading the efficiency of the facades and facilities “to measure”, rather that simply applying current regulations brutally. The building will be wiped entirely clean of all superfluous elements.

Article source: slapa oberholz pszczulny I architekten 

The site of a former freight train depot in the Oberkassel district of Dusseldorf is being revitalised by the BelsenPark development and instilled with new life. Criss-crossed by grassy corridors, a green residential and office district is emerging around a 20,000-square metre park and its central lake.

Situated directly on bustling Belsenplatz, the BelsenPark office buildings of Belmundo and LaVista by sop architekten form the spatial entryway to the new district. The five-storey office and commercial buildings accommodate retail shops and restaurants with their ground floors, which can be accessed via a pedestrian street leading to the park. Plazas around the buildings are used as outdoor patios by the restaurants.

COUNTRY GARDEN FOREST CITY in Malaysia by LAVA

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

Article source: LAVA

LAVA has won 2nd prize in an international competition to design a new city in Malaysia.

LAVA’s concept sees the city defined not as one iconic building, nor as a skyline, but as a central public space, a real forest. Chris Bosse, director of LAVA, explains: “Skylines across the world look the same – usually a couple of iconic towers in the centre surrounded by lots of lesser quality buildings, which all resemble each other.” “Here we have designed an inverse city skyline where the icon of the city is a public space, not an object/building. Our central space is a Rainforest Valley and demonstrates the equation: PEOPLE = CITY. From an object to a place.”

On a corner plot of the former Uhlan barracks in the Derendorf district of Dusseldorf stands the building ensemble Clara & Robert, by slapa oberholz pszczulny architekten, which links the two new buildings with the historical Saarhaus.

Article source: DROZDOV & PARTNERS Ltd. 

Located in the very heart of kharkov’s busy downtown, ave plaza inevitably became a new commercial hub of the city, attracting visitors with a variety of shops and restaurants, as well as with its striking appearance. the new building fills a gap in the historic tissue along the red line of the street, providing smooth transition between two existing scales. although the building has a relatively small footprint, it proves to be highly efficient due to well thought-out circulation, which provides access to numerous facilities on each of the four commercial floors. in order to achieve maximum efficiency of the retail centre, the volume of the building is pierced by an ellipsoid atrium with a peninsular tower in the middle. the tower is occupied by a variety of restaurants, encouraging visitors to climb higher to the upper floors. the tower inside the atrium creates a lively atmosphere, without spoiling the sightlines and the entire visual perception of the interior space. occupying one fourth of the total area, the atrium represents an allusion to a city quarter. it is topped by a roof garden on the level of the fourth floor.
