With the growth of cities and their scale, public buildings of 20th Century were likely to be driven away to the suburbs, often as isolated concrete boxes in parking lots. We wanted to reverse this flow with Nagaoka Aore. We moved the city hall back to the center of the town and revived a real “heart of town,” which is located in a walking distance from anywhere, working along with people’s everyday life.

By definition, an omnibus refers to a collection of stories made by a single narrator or several authors tied together by a single subject. It also pertains to a collection of objects at once. Along these lines, Omnibus City is a proposal that connects elements of downtown Salt Lake City that are already physically close, yet are experienced individually. Omnibus City strives to create a collection of experiences along three main corridors: Green, Culture (Main Street), and Retail. Acting as a catalyst of activity linking adjacent blocks to Main Street, these passageways are connected through a common design vocabulary of path, pattern, and phenomenon meant to permeate blocks 69 and 70 and guide visitors through its permutations.

This shop, specialized in selling pineapple cake (popular sweet in Taiwan), is in the shape of a bamboo basket. It is built on a joint system called “Jiigoku-Gumi,” traditional method used in Japanese wooden architecture (often observed in Shoji: vertical and cross pieces in the same width are entwined in each other to form a muntin grid).

This Office Building Project is located in a 2,255.98 m² terrain. The first and second floor is used as shops.
The main idea was to create an iconic building which uses the lighting as a way to give movement to the building.
The main facade is a black curtain wall with a Led system inside its structure so a vibrant effect could be created.

To entice both Seattle Sounders + Seahawks fans into the stadium’s Pro Shop, ROSSETTI expanded the store size by 250%, creating an immersive shopping environment for both teams. Each team’s merchandise is showcased on either side of the entrance through crystal clear, butt-glazed walls. The folding entrance wall opens on game days exposing a central flex space that is merchandised for the team playing that day.

Log architectes’ housing, office and commercial program deals with a specific corner condition by joining the street-side facade to the gable wall, turning it into a facade in its own right.
A clear and simple volumetry, the rhythmic composition of the facade and the contextually relevant materiality of the building allow it to precisely fit into the surrounding urban fabric.
