West Taihu International Business Plaza in Jiangsu Province, China by LAB Architecture Studio

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

Article source: LAB Architecture Studio

This competition winning design proposal for a new city government office complex in Xitaihu New Town incorporates a 5 star hotel with full conference and meeting capability together with a range of restaurant and support facilities. The dynamic shape provides a unique, sculptural form as one approaches the building. Located on a corner site, the faceted planes of the building shift their formal relationships when seen from different vantage points. The “rock crystal” is purposely asymmetrical in its formal massing, with faceted planes bevelled to differing orientations.

On an emblematic avenue in Guadalajara, a short distance from a city landmark in the heart of a cosmopolitan area, this building rises in an attempt to become a reference in Guadalajara’s cityscape. The project aims to create an imposing building that is kind both to its surroundings and the environment. The project consists of 6 commercially available office levels plus commercial spaces. The office levels have the possibility of splitting into 4 private stalls giving the building a dynamic and variable trait with up to 24 distinct office spaces.

BBDO Studio office in Moscow, Russia by Nefaresearch

Thursday, February 27th, 2014

Article source: Nefaresearch

The main challenge that faced Nefaresearch’s architects, was to reconstruct four-storey factory building of 19th century to the office for advertising agency. The style of the office had to resemble an art centre, rather than traditional office. The aim was to create with irony a rich dynamic and contemporary image in the BBDO’s branded palette (red, white, grey and black), covering and unifying all office spaces and in the same time dividing them into functional zones. The image should also contribute to creative and non-standard thinking.
