West Los Angeles Office Building in California by GMPA Architects

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

Article source: GMPA Architects

Located at a busy, pivoting point intersection where retail, commercial and residential properties merge, the design direction for this proposed office building emphasizes a connection to its neighbors—both the businesses and the residential communities—with the goal of integrating these adjacencies visually and figuratively to enhance the urban community. The concept strives to encourage pedestrian activity and communication. A predominance of translucent glass allows natural light inside while providing views to outdoor street-level activity and adding a sense of vibrancy to the community. A connection also exists between the curved front of the building and a new green public park that will face that portion of the structure.

Curtain Apartments in Wolli Creek, Australia by Tony Owen Partners

Wednesday, September 24th, 2014

Article source: Tony Owen Partners

The new Curtain Apartment building by Tony Owen Partners Has just been approved at Wolli Creek near Sydney Airport. The 200 apartment building is located at the waterfront and has panoramic water views of Sydney’s skyline. The Curtain also fronts onto a large park and Botany Bay. The design is unique in that all apartments face north to the view. This ensures all units have wide frontages and all rooms have balconies to take advantage of the site. In addition, almost all are ‘thru-units’ running north to south. This is achieved using open rear access corridors on the south which are accessed from external, lift towers. As a result all of the units are naturally ventilated. This minimizes energy costs making this a highly sustainable design.

Casa C in Milan, Italy by Francesco Librizzi Studio

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

Article source: Francesco Librizzi Studio

A very small apartment within a very “Milanese” building dated 1900. Two rooms plus a bath room, characterized by a narrow footprint compared to the quite high ceiling. Windows, doors, and above all the floor tiles, had finishes and materials survived to another century: something precious to save as a resource for the new inhabitants of this space.

Løgstør sports hall in Løgstør, Denmark by CEBRA

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

Article source: CEBRA

CEBRA has completed a public sports facility in the Danish town of Løgstør based on the office’s“Meccano concept” for unheated, low-cost and lightweight sports halls. The concept uses construction principles and elements otherwise known from industrial buildings and warehouses – that is standardised off-the-shelf components. The idea is that these simple elements can be refined and combined in new and surprising ways – just like the Meccano model construction system – in order to create architecturally appealing, accessibleand easily adaptable sports facilities, which are cheap to build and maintain. The concept has been developed in collaboration with LokaleogAnlægsfonden (the Danish Foundation for Culture and Sports Facilities).
