Grundfos Dormitory in Aarhus, DK by CEBRA

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

Article source: CEBRA

One of Grundfos Dormitory’s remarkable characteristics is providing student housings in the heart of Aarhus’ new harbour front development – that is, a low cost residential building on a very attractive site. Like many other industrial harbor fronts, the former container port of Aarhus is being transformed into a dynamic new neighborhood. Grundfos Dormitory is one of the first finished projects in the area that on completion will be home to 7,000 inhabitants and provide 12,000 workplaces. Its total site area amounts to 800,000 m2 making this development one of Europe’s largest harbor front city developments.

Charles Smith Wines Tasting Room & World Headquarters in Walla Walla, Washington by Olson Kundig Architects

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

Article source: Olson Kundig Architects

Winemaker Charles Smith approached our firm to design a new tasting room and office space that would match his rock and roll style. His approach to wine is captured by his trademark phrase: “It’s just booze – drink it!” The design team, led by Tom Kundig, was inspired by Charles’s in-your-face attitude to create a raw space that highlights the original aesthetics of the building while inserting highly flexible pieces, including a large unit dubbed the Armadillo. The resulting space can transform from an office, tasting room and retail store into a dining and entertainment venue.

Charles Smith Wines is located in downtown Walla Walla in the former Johnson Auto Electric building, constructed in 1917. The shell of the building—with original brick walls, wood trusses and a concrete floor—received minor structural updates but was otherwise left raw. The team highlighted the automotive history of the building by replacing garage doors with two custom, hand-cranked pivot doors that completely open the space to the street and form an awning for outdoor seating.

The concept of the drive-thru was important in the development of the design. Elements of the design, like the prefabricated Armadillo are “parked” within the space; other elements transform as needed, including floating “rafts” that serve as a seating area/stage, tasting tables that dock together to form a dining table, and a sliding panel that can function as a video screen. Vehicles—including delivery vans or taco trucks for catering—can literally drive through the space.

The Armadillo is a 70 foot long shell, measuring 12 feet high by 20 feet wide. It contains a conference room and workspaces for 14 people, including a semi-enclosed office space for Charles Smith and an enclosed space for accounting. L-shaped steel panels slide along the side and top of the structure, alternately opening it up to views of the tasting room and natural light from above or shutting it down for security and privacy. The panels also serve as a backdrop for Charles Smith Wines’ strong graphics, and are lined with cork in the inside, serving as an impromptu pin-up area. The design team collaborated with fabricators from Spearhead to design the structure as well as the custom furniture within it. Pieces were fabricated offsite and quickly assembled within the building, cutting down on construction time.

Carbon-Neutral Energy Solutions (CNES) Laboratory in Atlanta, Georgia by Gilbane Building Company

Saturday, January 19th, 2013

Article source: Gilbane Building Company

Georgia Tech’s new Carbon-Neutral Energy Solutions (CNES) Laboratory develops technologies to reduce the earth’s carbon footprint. From design and construction to daily operation, the laboratory seeks to achieve carbon-neutral “net-zero site energy use” (defined as zero net energy consumption and zero carbon emissions annually) expressed simply, directly and honestly through a “no frills” design. The lab sets a new standard for sustainable design for buildings of its type by optimizing passive energy technologies, reducing electricity loads, and maximizing the use of renewable energy. It houses a variety of energy research programs requiring large-scale (high-bay) and intermediate-scale (mid-bay) capabilities.

For more than two decades, a high-crime light-rail station stopping at a toxic empty lot; now, a sustainable affordable family housing development and new gateway to downtown.

La Valentina Station brings 63-units of affordable rental housing for families to a previously desolate city site. The development bolsters the local sewer, electrical and storm-water infrastructure and brings compact, transit-oriented homes to the neglected area.

Serengeti House in Johannesburg, South Africa by Nico van der Meulen Architects

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

Article source: Nico van der Meulen Architects

This is a Johannesburg home, located on a suburban golf estate, in Africa. The home’s visual success is due to its perfectly balanced application of earthy textures against high-gloss finishes, and raw material against refined elements.

“The brief”, says Rudolph van der Meulen of Nico van der Meulen Architects, “was to create a stylish family home with ecologically sound design that maximized indoor-outdoor living to take full advantage of Johannesburg’s legendary eight-month summer”.
