Sunday, September 1st, 2013

Article source: Maxwan + MS architekti

Red Hill Rise, a mixed use building on top of a metro station, consists of offices and retail located along one of the major spine road connecting airport and historical city centre of Prague. Backdrop of the project is a dramatically steep slope (max. 14m height difference), the site being located in a tranquil residential area while required program is purely commercial and requires expressive architecture. Furthermore, there is a lack of sufficient public space in the neighborhood.

GMS Grande Palladium in Mumbai, India by Malik Architecture

Friday, August 30th, 2013

Article source: Malik Architecture

The uniqueness of this project is that it operates on multiple levels. On one hand it uses technology and intelligent design to improve the working environment of its inhabitants, while working inclusively in an urban context.

On the other hand, it is a critical commentary on some of the antiquated notions that have plagued contemporary commercial design in the subcontinent. The eschewment of ornamentation, the treatment of structure as skin, the repudiation of self-aggrandizing atriums, the moulding of building volumes to perform multiple functions simultaneously, the treatment of landscape as an integral part of development and an exploration of its varying moods, the focus on sustainability, the holistic approach to design and execution are a direct result of a critical analysis of the exigent and often superficial buildings proliferating in the subcontinent.

Nuovi spazi espositivi Fondazione Cini onlus by Cattaruzza e Millosevich Architetti Associati

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013

Article source: Cattaruzza e Millosevich Architetti Associati

The new exhibition spaces for Fondazione Cini onlus, stem from the restoration of a building of the early nineteenth century, designed for a bonded warehouse, deeply changed by a heavy work of reclaim in 1954, functional to its reuse as a boarding school.
The works in 1954 lead to an obvious conflict with the original set-up:

GP practice by LENS°ASS Architects

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013

Article source: LENS°ASS ARCHITECTEN

The client wanted a consultancy space at home. The farmhouse itself is a typical courtyard farm. In order to protect privacy, and also to avoid creating a door in the rather blank outer walls, we opted for a brick gate, behind which a contemporary framework was constructed internally.
