UA Cine Times Cinema in Hong Kong, China by One Plus Partnership Limited

Thursday, December 4th, 2014

Article source: One Plus Partnership Limited

The 21st century opens a gateway to the new era of modern technologies and innovations. With the widespread of 3D and even 4D high definition movies available on global market, the old method of filming has gone scarce, if not extinct. When thinking of the theme for this cinema, the designers want to trace back to the roots when film making began. Back in the 19th century, photographers captured continual images and stored them on a single compact reel of film. This ancient object – roll films, was being symbolized all over the cinema, reminding the audience the long forgotten history behind the scene.

TETON RESIDENCE in Jackson, Wyoming by Dynia Architects

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2014

Article source: Dynia Architects

Located near the foot of the Teton Mountains, the site and a relatively modest program with a desire for intimate scale, led to placing the main house and guest quarters in separate buildings configured to form outdoor spaces. With mountains rising to the northwest and a stream cutting through the southeast corner of the lot, this placement of the main house and guest cabin distinctly responds to the two scales of the site. The public and private wings of the main house define the exterior space to the northwest, which is visually enclosed by the prominence of the mountains beyond. At a more intimate scale, the garden walls of the main house and guest cabin enclose the entry court to the south east.

JACER – training center in Ústí nad Labem-město, Czech Republic by 3+1 architekti

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014

Article source: 3+1 architekti

Originally a farmhouse, built in the second half of the nineteenth century in Předlice in the suburbs of Ústí nad Labem.

Under the communist regime it was occupied by agricultural cooperative which used the estate strictly pragmatically – only what was immediately needed was taken care of, the rest was neglected. Since the 90´s, the place was deserted and rapidly fell apart. Despite devastation of the area, there was still a strong sense of the original conception and smart design left.

Massive objects along the perimeter of the property define scale and space of the large yard area. Two of those – fifty meters long stables on the western edge of the property and sixty two meters long barn on the south – form basis of our proposal.
