STOCK Share Office in Tokyo, Japan by OgataYoshiki+SALT / WataseIkuma+Dugout

Thursday, December 3rd, 2015

Article source: OgataYoshiki+SALT / WataseIkuma+Dugout

This is a project to convert a building that was originally a rental warehouse into a share office.
The existing building had a 5-story container architecture style. Due to the characteristics of the container warehouse, the space had low ceilings with no windows, and was surrounded by metal. This gave it a very inorganic feeling.The first thing we did was to establish a large aperture with the wooden sash facing the street.Then we planted an over 12meterhigh sequoia as a symbol tree, since this property exists in the middle of the hill and had no landmark. Because the depth of a shrubbery was only 1800mm, we made the root bowl as small as possible, and installed the tree at the top of the hill. As for the rest of the plants, we leveled their heights to the sequoia, and selected their leaf colors so that they are deeper towards the back.The entrance door is made out of a 10 year-old marine container.It has an important role to show when the office is open or closed.

The offices of the Castilla León Junta in Zamora, Spain by Estudio Arquitectura Campo Baeza

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015

Article source: Estudio Arquitectura Campo Baeza 

Facing the cathedral and following the outline of the former convent’s kitchen garden, we erect a strong stone wall box open to the sky. Its walls and floors entirely   made of stone. The very same stone as the Cathedral. A real Hortus Conclusus. In the corner facing the cathedral, a massive stone measuring 250x150x50 cm, a veritable Cornerstone. And chiselled on that stone.

Arnhem Central Transfer Terminal in The Netherlands by UNStudio

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

Article source: UNStudio

The new €37.5m (£27.6m) Transfer Terminal at Arnhem Central Station in the Netherlands has now completed.

The station is the result of an ambitious 20-year project – masterplanned by UNStudio – to redevelop the wider station area; the largest post-war development in Arnhem. Backed by the Dutch government, this transfer hub rewrites the rulebook on train stations and is the most complex of its type in Europe. The station will become the new ‘front door’ of the city, embracing the spirit of travel, and is expected to establish Arnhem as an important node between Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium. The new terminal houses commercial areas, and a conference centre and provides links to the nearby office plaza, city centre, underground parking garage and the Park Sonsbeek. The area around the station will become a place in of itself, with 160,000m2 of offices, shops and a cinema complex.
