Astro Tower in Brussels, Belgium by Estudio Lamela

Friday, February 24th, 2017

Article source: Estudio Lamela

Today the Astro Tower in Brussels (Belgium) is presented, which after its renovationled by Estudio Lamela and its Belgianpartners Altiplan Architects—becomes Europe’s tallest green building in terms of energy consumption and savings. The project represents the profoundrefurbishment of an icon of the city to respond to the requirements of sustainability required by a 21st century city. At the same time, it renews the skyline of the city. “When we won the contest in 2010, we opted forcompletely rehabilitating the building from the original structure and preserving its essence. To do this, we replaced the facades with others that provide more luminosity and, more importantly, we gained the energy control of the tower, affirms Carlos Lamela, director of Estudio Lamela.

Slack’s new NYC headquarters in USA by Snøhetta

Thursday, February 23rd, 2017

Article source: Snøhetta 

Slack is the fastest-growing workplace software in the world. With over 6 million active weekly users, the intra-office messaging system is revolutionizing the way teams communicate around the globe. For the startup’s New York City headquarters, Snøhetta retrofitted a 12,000 SF space on the top floor of an 1880’s landmarked building in Lower Manhattan’s NoHo/East Village neighborhood to provide a versatile, sunlight-filled office. The design of each of Slack’s offices around the world aims to integrate elements of their local context, and Snøhetta’s design for Slack’s new NYC space is inspired by the city’s distinctive urban courtyards. Drawing inspiration from interior parkscapes like Paley Park, bamboo plants provide natural privacy screens and energize the space with greenery. Four existing skylights with enlarged, splayed ceilings dramatically increase the incidence of natural daylight deep into the space and the pocket courtyards beneath them.

Beates in Barcelona, Spain by Nook Architects with Byn Studio

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

Article source: Nook Architects 

The architectural refurbishment of this commercial ground floor space was conditioned for the needs of its new use, a design studio and concept store in what had been for the past few decades an archive and educational space.

The commercial space is located on the ground floor of a residential building built in the year 1900 in Barcelona’s Ciutat Vella, the Old Quarter.  The building’s entry and central staircase, which is ventilated through an adjacent patio, is accessed directly from a square.  This results in a U-shaped ground floor that wraps around the patio and central staircase.

FB Office in Lisbon, Portugal by WAATAA_we are all together around architecture

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

Article source: WAATAA_we are all together around architecture

The office is materialized from the transformation of two independent commercial space in a single physically connected one. Apparently in an unnatural way, the resulting unified space is re-divided in three with distinct identities. Two different work spaces in opposite sides and a transition passage that regulates the hierarchical and functional relation between them.

De Cecco Headquarters in Pescara, Italy by Studio FUKSAS

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

Article source: Studio FUKSAS 

The De Cecco Headquarters are an architectural landmark rising above an area of considerable town development. Two “edifices” linked by staircases and lifts, stand distinctly separate one on top of the other. The elevations of the cube-shaped lower part feature floor-to-ceiling glazing which hollows and lightens the sense of volume.

Tetra Office Building for the Research Institute Deltares in Delft, The Netherlands by Jeanne Dekkers Architectuur

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

Article source: Jeanne Dekkers Architectuur 

The Tetra building is the new face of the independent Research Institute Deltares. The institute, which focuses on innovative solutions to Delta problems, was housed on an outdated campus designed in the sixties. Jeanne Dekkers Architectuur tried to find a suiting expression to the changing emphasize of the research of Deltares. New insights into the essence of hydraulic engineering, with more emphasis on the “soft side”, the ecology and sustainability, asked for a different architectural language.
