20th St. Offices in Santa Monica, CA by Belzberg Architects

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

Article source: Belzberg Architects


The 20th Street Offices serve as creative working studios for three design firms in Santa Monica, California.  Located on a 7,500 square foot lot in one of the United States top ‘green’ cities, they consist of approximately 6,800 sf of studio space at two stories with a mezzanine. Santa Monica earned this ranking with its extensive Green Building Program and public policies.  However, the prominence of sustainable initiatives in Santa Monica doesn’t end with policy; an extensive network of environmentally conscious citizens and business owners, of which the architects of the 20th Street Offices are a member, propels it forward.  It is the firm’s desire, along side of its latest trajectories in architectural design and theory, to responsibly lead its fellow citizens, colleagues, and clients in green building initiatives and made no exception when designing their own offices as they pursued a LEED-NC Gold rating.

Bikini 32 residence and office, Madrid in Spain by hollegha arquitectos

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

Article source: hollegha arquitectos 

To make a building of 4.75m width and 13m length not look narrow might be impossible. Nevertheless, interiors were supposed to be spacious and generous. Time to rethink traditional systems! So we developed a façade concept that occupies only 18cm and offers perfect insulation for both cold and heat. Columns are visible in the interior.

The relation between in and out is very much perceptible in the whole building. Due to its proportions, you may see the sun rise and set without leaving the room.

The design was determined by the pursuit of two main goals. One was the creation of a space which, thanks to the means of architectural expression, would bring out the gravity of the central government office as well as create an impression of the government’s openness and accessibility to citizens. The other was the durability of the project in terms of utilization and aesthetics, especially taking into account that the project was to be paid for with public funds.

Offices Lille in Euralille, France by LAN Architecture

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

Article source: LAN Architecture

In 1990, in his preface titled “Quantum Leap” for the work presenting the Euralille project[1], Rem Koolhaas wrote: “In our contemporary world, programs become abstract in the sense that they are no longer tied to a specific place or city. They float and gravitate opportunistically around those places that provides them with the most connections.” And then, “All these facts describe a new condition that is at once local and global, as important for the “Japanese” as it is for the “Lillois.”
