Snailtower in Tartu, Estonia by Künnapu & Padrik Architects

Sunday, June 2nd, 2013

Article source: Künnapu & Padrik Architects

The building consists of a 23-storey vertical block with flats and some offices, and of a horizontal parking house on four levels. On the north-east side, the building is bordered by a road and by the River Emajõgi, and on the south-west, by the Science Centre Ahhaa. The ground plan of the tower is a spiral. Thus a symbolic building emerged, where the spiral is expressed in the sculptural form of the upper part of the tower. This spiral sculpture contains the idea of the entire project.

New offices for a public institution had to be housed into an old existing structure. When placed inside a container that had been thought for different purposes it was an important condition to achieve  a flexible functionality for public offices that  would comply with   present  technology requirements  for this kind of use and still embody  the representational level of  public architecture that  was claimed by the theme .

Shipara in Bangalore, India by SDeG

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

Article source: SDeG

Shipara is a new office building tucked into a tight urban site with overbearing buildings on three sides. The front edge faces a lush park in liberating contrast. The programmatic functions are organized on alternating split levels. A circulation spiral orchestrates movement within the volume and links the various staff and management zones. Façade and roof apertures are strategically located to force natural light through, and swerve in different directions to capture defined views of foliage and tree-tops.

County Council in Zamora, Spain by G+F Arquitectos

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

Article source: G+F Arquitectos

Not only should the new Council offices meet the determined requirements of use, but it also should help define one of the most compromising environments of the city, as Vitiato square- where the building is located- is a compulsory stop in the touristic tour around Zamora. The proposal designs the fourth façade of the square, completing the architectonic complex formed by the Encarnación Hospital to the North and the Ramos Carrion Theatre and the Condes de Alba y Aliste Palace to the South.

Livestrong Foundation in Austin, Texas, USA by Lake|Flato Architects

Thursday, May 16th, 2013

Article source: Lake|Flato Architects

After 10 years of leasing space in a suburban office building, the Livestrong Foundation found its permanent home in the 1950s-era Gulf Coast Paper Co. (GPC) warehouse in East Austin, an under-served community in the process of revitalization.The adaptive reuse of the GCP warehouse transformed the concrete tilt-wall building to provide office space, meeting rooms, multi-use facilities, an in-house gym, an open-air courtyard, and parking for the staff of 62. Ongoing plans call for adding a community-based cancer-support program to provide direct services, with an emphasis on uninsured and under insured East Austin residents.

Embedded Interferences in Pordenone, Italy by Disguincio&co

Sunday, May 12th, 2013

Article source: Disguincio&co

E.I. is the new facade of a series of warehouses dated back to the ’80s, situated at the east gate of Pordenone. The expansion is designed to accommodate new offices and give a unified appearance to the complex, currently fragmented both in terms of color and shape. The particular geometry solves organically these dissonant moments: tectonic components (pillars, beams, etc..) and programmatic exigencies (openings, entrances, etc..) have been integrated into a single body, in fact, the mass of the building is stretched to generate ground supports and tears to open the interior to natural light.
