In 2012, O-office transformed the top floor of a 1960s’ silo building in the oldest beer factory of Guangzhou, the central city of southern China. The 38-metre-high silo building locates on the south bank of one branch of the Pearl River, confronting the generic housing high rises and looking south to the city’s old downtown. The top floor used to be the inlet level for the wheat berry to be fill in the 12 silo’s below, thus full of square holes on it. A bridge building has been connecting the building part on top of the silo’s, and the vertical transportation tower at the east end.

‘House of Rolf’ is an ambitious transformation of a late nineteenth century coach house into a spectacular home and workspace. What is truly unique about this project is that all the materials used to carry out this transformation originated from a demolished office building that was located next to the coach house. The care and meticulous way in which these materials were reapplied can be witnessed in the end result. ‘House of Rolf’ is proof that waste can be turned into something beautiful.

Highline Stages, previously known as Ceco Studios, is a photo / film studio and events space in the Meatpacking district of New York City.
With 14,500 square feet and entrances on West 14th and West 15th Streets, the space previously housed large trucks and associated equipment related to film and production. The owner decided to rebrand the space as one that could be leased out for large events and filming. The unusually tall ceiling height and easy truck access from the street are a primary feature. EOA stripped the interior of all extraneous materials to expose its original character, providing a clean canvas for any variety of events and photo-shoots while still reflecting the inherent industrial fabric of the building. When the large steel doors that divide the space are open, a view through the entire block is revealed. The entries on both streets are designed to accommodate trucks while at the same time providing a layer of privacy and control to for private events. A new cafe bar is a place for cast and crews to relax and features reclaimed wood and blackened steel. Industrial lighting fixtures used on film sets have been re-purposed and integrated in a variety of ways throughout the space. Upstairs EOA created offices and work areas for the managers of Highline Stages with a continuation of the industrial aesthetic below. EOA also carved out smaller studio spaces to provide the client with additional opportunities to expand their offerings. The entire project is designed to provide the maximum flexibility to the clients of Highline Stages while also providing the perfect space for a variety of creative events to take place.
EOA worked with the New York City Landmarks Commission as well as the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation on the renovation which included incorporating a glass garage door at the street level, Image Courtesy © EOA/Elmslie Osler Architect

Tarragona, strategically located on a hill, has a close relationship with the Mediterranean. This geographical duality makes it possible to find such privileged places such as this studio, one of the few workplaces of the city with a sea view.
The aim of the project is to bring back the space used as storage for a long time and turn it into a wide and bright workplace.
The intervention was structured in three actions.

Urban design In the Eastern Harbor Area, next to the KNSM and Java island lie Borneo and Sporenburg islands. West 8 (Adriaan Geuze) has created a very inspiring urban plan. The question for West 8 was how to create a water-city along the kilometers of 19th century harbor cays. West 8 did not solve this problem by attempting to subdue the scale with huge blocks, such as Jo Coenen has done on the KNSM island, nor by trying to reduce the scale by creating cross-canals, such as Sjoerd Soeters, but by repetition of a small scale.

The new swimming pool and the studio are built in the back of the courtyard of an existing house. The studio is a pure volume that flies over the pool, facing the existing house. The pool is proposed as a sheet of water at the same level as the terrace.
The swimming pool is finished with the same stone as the terrace, detailing the lights and pipe-ends so that they are invisible.
