The Cement Factory in Sant Just Desvern, Spain by Ricardo Bofill Taller De Arquitectura

Friday, March 24th, 2017

Article source: Ricardo Bofill Taller De Arquitectura 

I found enormous silos, a tall smokestack, four kilometres of underground tunnels, and machine rooms in good shape. This was twenty five years ago and it was my first encounter with the Cement Factory.

I already imagined future spaces and noticed that the different aesthetic and plastic tendencies that had developed since World War 1 were present in this factory.

Youth Center in Ghent, Belgium by De Smet Vermeulen architecten

Friday, March 24th, 2017

Article source: De Smet Vermeulen architecten 

This office with shed and youth centre is a stopping place in nature. It has two important neighbours: a regional nature centre and a sports hall, which it is up against so as to be able to benefit from the paving and the underground pipes. The answer to the respectively indifferent and educational setting of sports hall and nature centre is domesticity: a house was missing on the premises.

Czech Forestry Commission campus in Hradec Králové, Czech Republic by Chybik+Kristof Architects & Urban Designers

Friday, March 17th, 2017

Article source: Chybik+Kristof Architects & Urban Designers

A project designed by a team under the direction of the Brno based young architecture studio CHYBIK+KRISTOF has recently won the international competition for the new administrative centre of the Czech Forestry Commission in Hradec Králové. The winning proposal is a two-storey building on the edge of an existing forest, that uses wood extensively as construction material – as requested within the competition. The concept is based on  incorporating the forest landscape into a five-finger building to create new relations between the inside office and the outside forest landscape. A nature trail surrounding the building allows to explore the different forest ecotypes, designed by Tomas Babka and breathe.earth.collective.

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.

Belsenpark Offices in Dusseldorf Oberkassel, Germany by slapa oberholz pszczulny I architekten

Wednesday, March 15th, 2017

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.
