Corix Water Systems by Taylor Kurtz Architecture + Design

Thursday, September 26th, 2013

Article source: Taylor Kurtz Architecture + Design

This 78,000sf steel frame and concrete tilt panel facility provides manufacturing, warehouse and office space for the tenant, Corix Water Systems and Utilities.

Designed in response to a significantly sloping site, the main entrance and office floor is raised above the street level permitting a high quality of street-front expression while maintaining a low profile consistent with the neighbourhood context.

The entrance plaza and canopy, detailed in concrete, steel, glass and cedar dominate the visual expression of the street-front elevation and set a tone that is more professional in appearance than industrial as one would expect in a development of this type. Adjacent to the entry canopy, a carefully considered composition of glazed slot monitor windows complete the street front elevation, permitting natural light to the warehouse and breaking down the scale of the street-facing north wall. The varied roof lines of these elements helps to further reduce the scale and visual bulk that is typical in industrial warehouse buildings.

Below the office level is the Shop Floor, anchored by a 17,000sf manufacturing shop, contractor warehouse, storage warehouse, offices and grade level access to loading and receiving bays at the south and east yards. Adjacent to the central circulation and elevator core, a suite of feature spaces including testing labs, assembly rooms and geothermal centre are arranged to facilitate tours and to showcase the varied products and systems manufactured by Corix.

ALPL in Austria by Smertnik Kraut Architekten

Thursday, September 26th, 2013

Article source: Smertnik Kraut Architekten

The estate and the farmhouse with adjacent forest have been in the family’s property for a long time before the decision was made to construct a summer residence. The actual residential building of the farm was too small by the size for the family. The barn in the close proximity was therefor large enough.

Godden Cres in Mission Bay, Auckland, New Zealand by Dorrington Architects & Associates

Wednesday, September 25th, 2013

Article source: Dorrington Architects & Associates

This classic modern house is designed around a number of mature trees, in a park-like setting. The house is designed as a collection of blocks linked by a flat-roofed element, housing the entry and gallery. The gallery space leads you past an interior courtyard and pool and on to the main living area, where a strong connection to the garden is maintained via large glass sliders on both sides.

Dear Ginza bldg in Tokyo, Japan by amano design office

Wednesday, September 25th, 2013

Article source: amano design office

The client is a developer company. It purchased a long-sought after lot in Ginza, and planned to build a commercial  office building.

The building site is on the Ginza 1-chome Gaslight Street, which is one street behind the Ginza Central Street.

It is on the back side of the Mizuho Bank and Pola Ginza buildings on the Central Street. The atmosphere is quite different from the gorgeous Central Street, and the site is on an empty street which is often seen behind the street with large-sized buildings.
Attracting as many people as possible into such a street is our task. The client desired the building to be a gorgeous existence.

HEADQUARTERS STORE in WROCŁAW, Poland by BudCud

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013

Article source: BudCud

Street-wear store is located on the ground floor of a historic tenement house in the city centre of Wroclaw (PL). Shape of an existing volume became a major inspiration and an impulse to design Headquarters Store as an abstract landscape. Arches and gates from steel pipes, filled with glass panels, reinterpret contours of existing barrel vaults and deform standard clothes hanger. Contour objects – together with simple white furniture from medium-density fiberboard – create additional subspaces inside a boutique.

Seaside Residence by Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013

Article source: Stelle Lomont Rouhani Architects

An existing non-descript structure, perched above the crest of the dune between the ocean and bay, was thoroughly transformed. We utilized clearly defined volumes, simple, durable, yet elegant materials and details instilling a strong connection between the indoors and out.
