The concept of the building is to create a gateway that is neither closing-off or dividing the city. The 15-story tower features offices, restaurants, post office, a terraced roof garden and a sunken passage that leads through a shopping center. The rooftop terraces offer generous views to the distant nature while the stone louvers provide a sustainable solution to the office conditions. The building will become the gateway for the Gongshu District and an icon for the urban transformation of the old industrial neighborhood.

The Westlandgracht is a relatively unknown, but beautiful canal in the West of Amsterdam. It is located close to the World Fashion Center but still within the ring road A10. This canal has a surprising characteristic: at one point it expands into a giant pond, or a small lake. Our client discovered that the zoning law allows for a small restaurant to be build here. A strategic location: wonderful scenery combined with infrastructure. It is positioned at one of the radial roads from the center into the western expansions.

Our task consisted in remodeling a house located in downtown Melipilla and converting it into a restaurant and coffee house. The original building presented a rather closed-in and inflexible design plus several additions of very low quality in the back side of the property.

A new shape for this building can succeed only as a visible restatement of its most basic assumptions. But a building embodies basic assumptions best when it effectively restructures its entire environment— even as economically, socially, and architecturally diverse an environment as lower Manhattan!

The intervention site is located in Lisbon’s historical centre, on the ground floor of a Pombalinian building. It is a very common type of warehouse in these buildings, characterized by a single space defined by three vaulted areas with stone masonry walls and solid brick domes. Its maximum height is 4,15m and it is 16 meters long, 5,50m wide, having a total area of 102 m2. One of the ceiling tops has direct contact with the street, via two doorways, while the other has contact with a ventilation patio.

In the heart of Brescia’s city centre, Gambero Rosso Restaurant is situated in an environment where the remains of a porch of a fourteenth-century cloister coexist with spaces built in the 1960s, following the bombings of the convent which happened in World War II.

The project was planned on the site with Mt. Fuji rising closely in the south and the two sides facing the trunk roads. This building seems to belong to such nature objects as mountains and clouds. It is made from soft geometry, which will not arise from the figures like quadrangles and circles. By continuously operating innumerable polygon mesh points, we have determined the shape that clears the conditions such as the consistency as shell construction and the undulations that ward off rainwater in spite of its free geometry. The RC shell with cubic surfaces creates such spaces as 530 square meters of seats, 140 square meters of kitchens, and 50 square meters of rest rooms, in such a manner that it envelops and opens them.
