New offices of the Botín Foundation in Madrid, Spain by MVN architects

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Article source: MVN architects

The Botín Foundation has established its new offices in Madrid by choosing a 1920s industrial building by the architect Gonzalo Aguado, which was for years the Silversmith workshop of Luis Espuñes and more recently the Vinçon shop in Madrid.

The peculiarity of this building has given us the opportunity to create a referen­ce point. With this in mind, the new project attempts to retain the spirit of the original industrial character, in keeping with the same philosophy of the Foundation, which is a driving force for developing talent.

‘Westchester County Center’ Acoustics Revitalized by WSDG

Friday, November 9th, 2012

Article source: WSDG

An entrepreneur with a wide range of music business interests, Irwin Kornfeld has sparked new awareness for the eighty-year-old Westchester County Center.  A major upgrade of the facility’s acoustics, coupled with a state of the art sound system, has landed the WCC and its new “Pepe Infiniti Concert Series” on the radar of booking agents and performing artists seeking viable venues for tri-state concert dates.  The series’ launch featured The Beach Boys in concert in mid-May, nearly fifty years after their first WCC gig. The Johnny Winter Band and Edgar Winter Group, Boston, Il Volo, Whoopie Goldberg, Aretha Franklin and others are booked through November.

House Mosi was commissioned to Nico van der Meulen Architects with an explicit plan: the final product had to match the owner specifications.

Ballyroan Parish Centre in Dublin, Ireland by Box Architecture

Friday, November 2nd, 2012

Article source: Box Architecture

The client, South Dublin County Council, approached our office to refurbish and extend the existing library of Marian Road in Ballyroan, Rathfarnham in 2006. The brief expanded and, as part of the project, we were asked to look at refurbishing the existing community centre, which was in need of upgrading to modern space and environmental standards. It became quite evident early on that the extent of area required for the pastoral element was too large and a separate building was required.

Victoria 73 in Cape Town, South Africa by SAOTA – Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects

Friday, September 21st, 2012

Article source: SAOTA – Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects

The brief called for a dynamic response to capitalise on the site, by creating an environment where the young family could enjoy an outdoor lifestyle.

The design was driven by the need to create a family home, which accommodated the kitchen, living and dining room in one space. The secondary living area was to be an entertainment space. The pool terrace allows for covered and uncovered areas to relax around the pool. The entertainment lounge accommodates a generous bar, and is close to the outdoor braai area. A dramatic gazebo structure is perched at the edge of the pool deck.
