stgm head office in Québec, Canada by stgm architectes

Thursday, April 23rd, 2015

Article source: stgm architectes

STGM’s new head office is located in the Beauport borough of Quebec City, adjacent to the Estimauville eco-neighbourhood. It is a 1,000 square metre two-storied structure that puts the focus on eco-friendly, architectural innovation. The building succeeds in offering an exceptional level of comfort to its occupants through the mindful integration of a longitudinal form, orientation to the sun, light wood structure, meticulously selected materials and efficient systems, while producing a low ecological footprint. High performance concrete siding combined with Eastern Cedar creates an impression that is both simple and dynamic, with attention given to the relationship between solids and voids that lend the building an air of elegance that belies both time and fashion. From the first sketches, the designers sought to attain a high level of sustainability – a principle already at the heart of the firm’s priorities, using creativity to implement the strategies necessary to reach LEED-NC Platinum level. With this objective in mind, comfort, simplicity and coherence were selected as founding principles.

Tuesday, April 21st, 2015

Article source: Juan M. Otxotorena

The location of the proposed new building is set in response to the combination of  clear criteria of availability of space with powerful reasons of ease of use, based on the experience of the life of the school.

The fundamental design decisions are deducted in effect, in general, a number of criteria securely fastened in the minds of the property, from their experience. And this experience is nothing other than that which you have provided years of the College and its various buildings and facilities. Such criteria have decided to check the location of this new construction, according to their functional efficacy in terms of use of the land, organizational coherence, order, and optimizing the circulation, spatial sequence, and above all the desire of minimizing interference from the new building to the daily operation of the existing complex built of the school has played a special role.

Sin El Fil in Beirut, Lebanon by SOMA Architects

Thursday, April 9th, 2015

Article source: SOMA Architects

The three volumes of the mixed use compound are situated in Sin el Fil, Lebanon, near an important junction of highways and major roadways to the East of Beirut. The site also provides panoramic views toward the center of Beirut to the East and to the mountains to the West. In order to take advantage of this unique location, and the panoramic views, the project is conceived as three volumes arrayed about a central focal point in the center of the site. Each volume is in turn chamfered toward the outside, creating terraces toward their respective views, while on the ground floor, the buildings chamfer in, creating impressive cantilevers and freeing up large areas of outdoor space. The building directly along the highway serves as an office tower with a large retail base extending along the highway, while the other two buildings provide apartments. This positioning creates three basic outdoor spaces: one for a public drop odd, one for a private drop off, and a third used as a playground and collective garden space.
