Work areas are open-space and are mainly located along the windows. The windows, by the way, are facing the Black Sea and the picturesque port of Odessa. There are just several separated premises here: coffee-point, meeting rooms, canteen, and the sports zone, with table tennis, foosball, cardio-vascular machines and gymnastic accessories.

Article source: Guillermo Hevia Architects

A volume of simple and emphatic architecture, which reinterprets the anonymous architecture of the coastal valleys in the center of Chile.  It poses itself above the soft tree-lined areas, peeking gently with its facades of wood and tones that highlight the luminosity of the place.  The body melts down as one with the geography and projects the lines of trees upon his facades.  Employs sustainable technologies, creating a favorable mood for work and the production of quality olive oil.

Tosetto, Weigmann and Associates in Turin, Italy by MARC

Article source: MARC

MARC is commissioned to transform an elegant mansion from the beginning of the 20th century into an efficient contemporary office building. To do that it needs to perform radical and pragmatic interventions, optimizing the use of space. At the same time, it is necessary to respect the existing rooms and preserve their charm, but without being intimidated by their cold classicism. The project looks for discretion and neutrality while inserting all the many necessary new elements. Like the new staircase in perforated metal -the trigger of the typological change- that connects seven different levels illuminating them with a big skylight.

Pto de contato in Sao Paulo, Brazil by Studio GGA

Friday, April 13th, 2012

Article source: Studio GGA

Coworking is a versatile meeting, communicating and workbench table system providing modern workplaces. The layout of the tables demonstrates a thoughtful approach to the floor plan and generates this way a functional network. The scheme is centered on the provision of small work units for self employed and studios; obviously sharing tables and space with others. “Pto de contato” is a platform of experimentation, a deliberate contrast to usual offices, offering huge tables and informal spaces for sharing.

Domino in Turin, Italy by MARC

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Article source: MARC

A big web-marketing agency moves into a conventional four-story building out of the city center. It promotes a contest among design offices, asking an architecture able to represent and strengthen the identity of its immaterial work, without relying on predictable cyberpunk or – worse – high-tech languages. MARC wins of the contest with this answer: the needed architecture is… restoration. The necessary immateriality is achieved literally, subtracting material from all the thick layers that had hidden what gradually reveals to be a decent building from the beginning of the 20th century.
