The Gables in London, England by Patalab Architecture

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

Article source: Patalab Architecture

The Gables is the reinterpretation of a former commercial compound comprising a mechanic’s office and garage, tucked away in a private courtyard behind a terrace of period properties in Primrose Hill, North London. Landlocked, the site presented an enormous challenge in the reuse of the original footprint, which has created a wonderful lateral two floor family home.

Broadgate Exchange House in London, England by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP

Tuesday, January 13th, 2015

Article source: Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP

The Broadgate Exchange House in London, celebrated for its simple yet ingenious structural system that unifies design and function in the mid-century Modernist tradition, was selected for the 2015 AIA Twenty-five Year Award. Designed by Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill (SOM) and completed in 1990, the Exchange House is a recognizable presence in central London. Its distinctive facades, defined by two parabolic arches against grids of windows, derive from SOM’s strategy to vault 10 stories of offices over the tracks that feed Liverpool Street Station. Far from droll, the grid and arch combine to improve extraordinary public spaces beyond. The arch on the Exchange House’s plaza size appears as an abstracted, amphitheater backdrop. The opposite arch, along narrow Primrose Street, soars upward and down again as you walk along, offering not just visual relief for office workers hustling to Old Spitalfields Market for a quick lunch. It encourages everyone to look up and see the building for what it is: a perfect marriage of form and function.

Article source: OGAWASEKKEI 

This project is to create a gallery and office-living space for a landscape architect by renovating a rental property of two-story wooden building located at a short distance from central part of Gifu city by Nagara River. Since this is a rental property, the renovation is focused on finishing of wall, floor, and ceiling rather than changing plan or section plans to create a space. The first floor will be the gallery and the second floor will be the office-living space.
