ENIGMA in Colombo, Sri Lanka by Narein Perera

Friday, June 12th, 2015

Article source: Narein Perera

The form of the house is primarily generated in creating the concept of an “Enigma” in the mind of the person entering. Guided by intermediate open spaces, the entrance court, the pool, subsequently arriving at the main volume of the living room where the climax of the ‘hidden’ garden is fully experienced. The entrance court envisioned as a part of the street on which the 20perch site forms the end block, defined by the continued building lines of the adjoining plots, the random rubble vertical envelope and pergola horizontal plane,  serve to contain, pause, experience the powerful shadows the sun paints, overwhelm, announcing arrival.

Neubau höhere Fachschule für Gesundheit in Luzern, Switzerland by Maier Hess Architekten GmbH

Thursday, June 11th, 2015

Article source: Maier Hess Architekten GmbH

The project seeks to initiate a pattern clearly identifying the hospital campus on Spitalstrasse. With already two buildings of about 35m height, adding a third one makes the pattern evident. An important benefit of the slightly higher than average structure is the – in our eyes very necessary – casualness of the surrounding space, that so could become more convenient and less tight.

Point Cloud to BIM for an International Broadcast Center by Hi-Tech Outsourcing Services

Thursday, June 11th, 2015

Article source:  Hi-Tech Outsourcing Services

Challenges

The client wanted us to detect and rectify errors in the point cloud with accurate BIM modeling within 24 days.

The total data size provided by client was about 185 GB & to work with such heavy data files was really a difficult task.

The input files were in the form of 3D scanned images in which few of the scanned inputs were not clear & some of the building data was missing due to improper scanning, leading to complexity of resurfacing and modeling.

The building area was large and also consisted of complex steel structure.

Three level penthouse by Svetozar Andreev Architectural Studio

Sunday, June 7th, 2015

XVIII century building attic area renovation to three-level penthouse:

“The architect and interior designer Svetozar Andreev needed a lot of imagination skills when he saw the attic of the house he had to redesign. In the result, he turned a dirty attic with a leaky roof into a modern 3-level penthouse apartment. The powerful sunshine through the big rooftop windows fill the whole apartment with natural light. In an interior, besides furniture of well-known brands, the most part of subjects is created according to Svetozar Andreev’s sketches: the kitchen tables, systems of built-in furniture are made especially for this interior.The large terrace allows an owner to have a barbecue on an open air, and it is simple to admire historic center of the city without leaving own apartment.”
