The Yardmaster’s Building in Melbourne, Australia by McBride Charles Ryan architecture+interior design

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

Article source: McBride Charles Ryan architecture+interior design

Cross Rail Yard. Typically, a service building inaccessible to the public like this would be treated in a pragmatic and unremarkable way. In contrast, the Yardmasters Building confidently presents itself as a ‘public’ entity. Viewed in the round, it offers itself back to the city as an exquisite, mysterious box: a jewel in the junkheap. The project involved extensive consultation with representatives of the diverse users, their respective union representatives, and management and associated authorities.

Maximiliano Restaurant in Los Angeles by FreelandBuck (designed using Rhino and Grasshopper)

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

Article source: FreelandBuck

Maximiliano is an Italian restaurant and pizzeria for chef Andre Guerrero that opened in October 2011 in Los Angeles.  The 2,200 sf tenant improvement is atmospherically distinct; a unique triangular dining area infused with color and evocative of the rich and refined menu. A large mural on the large south wall creates a strong graphic and spatial identity, evoking the rhythmic yet varied shapes of Guerrero’s handmade pastas. The rhythm of embossed white stripes shifts from evenly parallel at the ceiling to randomly wavy at the seats, giving a gravitational weight to the wall and infusing the space with vibrant color and pattern. Descending over a door to the patio is a deep porous soffit that undulates over the bar, filtering natural and artificial light and housing the restaurants wine collection.  The brightly painted slats animate the space with local and varied color intensities creating 3d optical effects as the viewer moves that recall the visual instability of 1970’s Op Art.

Nature Centre:

The visitors centre is situated in the pristine forest of Hareskoven in the vicinity of Copenhagen. It is a portal to the almost 1 million visitors that uses the forest annually. It hosts a 1000 square meter large visitor centre with café, exhibition space, rental, learning and research facilities and a caretaker’s residence.

The building is shaped like a star resembling the pathways in the forest that surrounds it. The pathways used to be a part of the old kings hunting grounds. They could provide a panoramic overview over the position of the prey in the forest. Now they serve as a historical memory and are a beautiful and unique feature of Hareskoven.

Competition Entry for Bispevika Development in Norway by PUSHAK

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

Article source: PUSHAK

Rich nature meets rich urbanity of Oslo’s new social hub.

When this new harbour area is fully developed the opening to the fjord will appear relatively narrow. PUSHAK proposes a new road north-south that turns and opens to the fjord. Three courts open towards – and frame – the view to the islands. The three water basins serve as a physical separation between the busy public spaces outside the courts, and the courtyard which only belongs to the residences. At the same time a tension is maintained between public and private: a glimpse into the lush dwelling yard, a look out on the city’s pulse. A number of pavilions add to the filtering between public and private, as well as creating a sunny wall to sit against for enjoying a cold drink on summer days.

Quartier M Düsseldorf in Germany by J. MAYER H. Architects

Sunday, November 27th, 2011

Article source: J. MAYER H. Architects

Urban development block with a high rise for office, hotel, wellness and commercial use

In a three-level peer review process that resulted in two first-prize winners, an urban planning concept was developed for the area of what was once the post office on Erkrather Strasse. The so-called “Quartier M” is to serve as the future link between the Hauptbahnhof central station and Tanzhaus NRW/Capitol, becoming a lively city quarter for living and working. In addition to offices and a hotel, the trend-setting urban design also provides for both privately financed and government subsidized public housing.

Other plans include space for a day care center for children and service providers for the quarter.

Article source: Maxthreads Architectural Design and Visuals

Architectural concept

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.

Fusillo: Social seating for public space by Marco Goffi (designed using Rhino)

Friday, November 18th, 2011

Article source: Marco Goffi

Looking at its form makes clear the functional point of departure that Fusillo aspires to: the “fauteuil conversation” a real place for socialising and cultural exchanges. With everyone comfortably seated in his or her own “space,” there is interaction, encouragement of relationships: this is Fusillo’s intention, created by Marco Goffi’s pencil around a section design. A three-pointed star, which with its simultaneous rotation and transferral movement generates the form, and the underlying support structure materialises. The “skin” of a living species in perpetual movement, an organic and functional sign, an interpretation of the multiple seating which offers the possibility of becoming infinite by adding more Fusillo-modules.
