Jacob’s Ladder in Brooklyn, New York by BanG studio

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

Article source: BanG studio

In conjunction with their participation in American Express’ Partners in Preservation program, Congregation Beth Elohim in Brooklyn has commissioned BanG studio to design, fabricate, and erect an art installation inside the synagogue’s main sanctuary. The given theme of the piece is Jacob’s Ladder reflecting the synagogue’s special connection to the story.
In Genesis, Jacob stops for the night en route from the house of his father, Isaac to Paddan-aram. He dreams of a ladder set upon the earth and stretching to heaven. In his dream, angels ascend and descend the ladder. God appears to Jacob promising the land on which he sleeps to him and his descendants. When Jacob awakens he realizes that, “surely the Lord is in this place, and I did not know it.”

Downtown LA Hotel in Los Angeles, California by XTEN Architecture

Sunday, May 27th, 2012

Article source: XTEN Architecture

This new 65,000sf hotel is conceived as a monolithic concrete structure, carved by a system of slots and slices that bring light, air and views deep into the building.

The site is an infill parcel in downtown Los Angeles which measures just 50×150 feet. The hotel is freestanding, surrounded on all sides by alleys and streets. This allows for slots to be cut into the façade, which contrast with and dematerialize the otherwise monolithic quality of the building.

Villa London in Mallorca,Spain by CMV Architects

Saturday, May 26th, 2012

Article source:  CMV Architects

The house is located in Sa Torre housing development, in a plot of land next to the cliff. The client, a well-known English writer, raises an extensive program to fulfill the needs of each of the members of the family. The infinite sights on the sea will be the basic premise of the project. The necessity to open the house to the landscape, taking advantage of the local characteristics, entails the disintegration of the volumes, fleeing from the massification.

The construction is set out as a set of independent entities: independent pavilions placed, one next to the other, along the axis of the cliff, each one of it keeping its own privacy and independence. The common areas work as connection spaces. Finally, a writing pavilion is set out in the privileged area of the plot, allowing to cut off from the rest of the set and providing tranquility and easier concentration to the writer.

Article source: Nabito Architects & Partners

The neighbourhood of Corso Lazio, in the city Of Frosinone, Italy, finally could enjoy its first public space , expected to be ready 35 years ago.

Sensational Garden represents the starting point of a big master-plan to renew and integrate the public spaces and the services to the housing neighbourhood. This lack of public spaces generate an absolute degrade of the entire area, and the neighbourhood has become an unsustainable dormitory. For this reason the project for the sensational garden amplify the idea of a relational space filling the social void with an explosive, playfull, sensorial and interactive intimate room, like a personal living room in a public realm. The garden is constantly in tension between artificial and natural elements.

Article source: Bureau B+B urbanism and landscape architecture

The city of Turnhout intends to develop this plan area into an ’Innovatiepool voor Life Science en Global Care’ (Innovation pool for Life Science and Global Care). This not only involves research and innovative projects concerning care and living, but also new integrated residential care concepts and an overall high standard public space. Bureau B+B and B-architecten asked themselves how far Turnhout’s aspirations could be translated into a distinctive urban design structure, an identity for the ‘Innovatiepool’ and how could ‘Innovatiepool Turnhout’ be formed into a characteristic urban design typology and corresponding public space. There is a square at the middle of the ‘Innovatiepool’, the central meeting place for the area.

  • Project: Innovatiepool
  • Location: Turnhout, Belgium

A former Lisbon dock’s warehouse is to be converted in several lofts. The apartments will have different and personalized characteristics . Interior partitions in exposed concrete will separate the diverse units.

In this loft a series of elements are added to the relatively neutral existing shell, punctuating and ordering space: A stair / bookcase, a fireplace and a wood coated central volume, which contains all services, facilities and several retractable elements, enabling to control the degree of partitioning of space, depending on the needs at each moment. Circulation takes place all the way around the said central volume.
