Challenged with a highly innovative plant, combining scientific research and modern production of concrete on an international standard, we have been asking ourselves to not only provide all tasks, but to add something special that makes this project shine out the typical factories.
The company XinAo is multitalented enterprise providing all kind of goods and services. A lot of their goals are satisfying families and supporting them in the daily tasks we all encounter. We took this as a perfect link to the subject concrete, providing us with the necessarities of our infrastructure. This ranges from bridges to houses to simple furniture. We took this liason of common goals to give the whole project a simple and for everyone coherent face, a ordinary house.

NW Beijing technology and research centre for the applications of computer technology is located at the intersection of a motorway, bordering the facilities of IT company NW tech. It consists of office buildings, laboratories and experimental energy research centre. The greatest possible degree of spatial flexibility was specified, in order to be able to incorporate new machinery and technical resources without interfering in day to day centre operations. Our primary intention was to create instantly recognizable buildings for the research centre that was vivid in its individuality, with flexibility being one of the key objectives. The architectural expression for the research centre has been inspired by the well organized computing system. As an artificial computing threading that run through the main facade.It also equip with solar tracking system to minimise the direct sun light penetration.

The project building was built in 1926 as a processing facility for the Washington Cooperative Egg and Poultry Association. After a series of additions and renovations, the building was converted in 1983 to biotechnology laboratories and offices. When the current owners acquired the building in 2006, it no longer met market standards for top quality lab or office space. The client’s charge to the design team was to transform the tired building into a world class life science facility that celebrated its Elliott Bay waterfront setting.

Downtown Los Angeles based design group APHIDoIDEA proposes the eCORRE COMPLEX, The Environmental Center of Regenerative Research & Education, to the City of Long Beach in California. The project takes the ISO container used by the Port of Long Beach (2nd busiest port in the World). Designed and placed as a FINALIST entry for the AIA-LA / USGBC Emerging Talent Design Competition, APHIDoIDEA re-adapts the shipping container as core building elements and implemented sustainable strategies to educate its visitors and users about “green” building practices such as solar energy, water collections, interior daylighting, rooftop gardens, passive cooling techniques, reuse of grey water, to name a few.
