O Dos Vasconcelos – Hotel Habita in Nuevo Leon, Mexico by Landa Arquitectos

Sunday, February 3rd, 2013

Article source: Landa Arquitectos

O Dos Vasconcelos is a mixed-use complex organized around a central, open-air public space with a circular plan. The parking area, the apartments and commercial spaces, and the hotel volume are all visible from the entrance level. The relation between the underground and the aboveground spaces, and the concentration of different functions in carefully crafted pieces, lends the complex a mechanical character –appropriate for a predominantly industrial city– which reminiscent of the early work of James Stirling.

Prato Lofts in Tuscany, Italy by mdu architetti

Sunday, February 3rd, 2013

Article source: mdu architetti

The Prato Lofts, designed by the italian architecture studio mdu architetti, is an investigation on the deep and complex relationships between the public space of the city and the intimacy of the private space of living. The Prato Lofts interpret the theme, generating quite inner spaces for the everyday life related to themselves and to the mutations of the sky, that are concealed from the urban chaos by a silent concrete wall.

Residential Housing 26 units in Obhur, Saudi Arabia by Dom Arquitectura

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

Article source: Dom Arquitectura

The aim is to project 26 houses in the Obhur area. The client wanted to use the same isolated unit type, but generate differences in the street facade to avoid the traditional house complex with all the same.

Recalling the Islamic markets, we remind the Arabic spices image, located in the same container but with different color shades. Natural tones that would fit perfectly into our idea.

Landscapes of Cohabitation in Antiparos, Greece by doxiadis+

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

Article source: doxiadis+

How does one build on the stark beauty of a Cycladic landscape without destroying it? This project seeks an answer to that very question. Placing such a rich development programme on this highly sensitive site necessitates a careful examination of the natural and historic elements which characterise the landscape: the amphitheatrical circle of hills, the seasonal streams, the juniper trees and frigana vegetation, the pezoules (agricultural terraces) and the xerolithies (dry stone walls).

Spuntino Restaurant in Mexico City, Mexico by R-ZERO Studio

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

Article source: R-ZERO Studio

Spuntino (snack in Italian) was born in one of the most exclusive living and shopping centers of historical downtown Mexico City, a place to eat and drink quality wine, whose design aim lies in the creation of a contemporary yet pleasant ambience, almost homely, without abusing the over-sophistication that prevails in similar sites nowadays. Still, the starting point was a cold, colorless, not well lit locale, whose excessive height came about an uncomfortable sensation for the guests.

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.
