C interior design by Daniela Craciunoiu

Sunday, November 25th, 2012

Article source: Daniela Craciunoiu

This is a day area make-over for an existing house.

The main challenge was the client’s desire to keep some of the old furniture – a couch and an armchair with a baroque texture and other red cherry furniture items. The existing atmosphere was rather dusty and sad, with a combination of different shades of beige and the red of the cherry wood.

Tuesday, November 20th, 2012

Article source: Debarre Duplantiers Associés Architecture & Paysage

What if we stopped zoning? And what if we projected an office building in the middle of a social housing district? The building Aalta in Cenon takes advantage of different economic incentives and of the development of the Bordeaux tramway to densify and create an active interface between Palmer social district and a quiet neighborhood made of small houses.

The Green Cage by Jonathan Gibb – Architect

Sunday, November 18th, 2012

Article source: Jonathan Gibb – Architect

The design intent was to look at an residential and pottery / art studio insertion to a bare inner city lot, surrounded by a motley crew of existing industrial buildings. The concept evolved into designing an oasis, abundant with nature within such a concrete and brick clad environ for the interface of Architecture to the intimacy of a garden. The concept of the Green Cage is a contained ideal of the greening of one’s own backyard.

No.8 Wire Residence in Otago, New Zealand by Jonathan Gibb – Architect

Sunday, November 18th, 2012

Article source: Jonathan Gibb – Architect

The Concept: No.8 Wire is a paper architecture exploratory analysis of what constitutes the form and idea of a home relative to the landscape of Central Otago NZ. Three types of spatial devices create and inform the architecture, that of solid, transparency and void. The two gabled volumes sit mirrored, off-set and self referential, bared to all, lost within the expanse of the landscape. The aesthetic is a bold foray of form placed in conversant to its surroundings. Its use is a signifier of the NZ concept of resourcefulness and creativity; best described as a kiwi’s ingenuity and adaptability.

Brock University CFHBRC: Daylighting / Layers of Transparency

Thursday, November 15th, 2012

Article source: Payette

Glass was once a rare and limiting material, used very sparingly in older buildings. Now, with technological advancements in the manufacturing and performance of glass, a building’s entire enclosure can be constructed with glass – and large expanses of glass are often used for interior partitions.

For the Brock University Cairns Family Health and Biosciences Research Complex (CFHBRC), a series of glass “layers” allow daylight to penetrate deep into the building. There are also surface treatments on the glass, as well as an exterior screen wall that controls the light entering the building. The various types of glass and screens provide transparency, illumination, light filtration and privacy.

On the upper two laboratory floors, the continuous wall of transparent glass has a screen-printed pattern applied to it which filters the light and reduces solar heat gain. While a high degree of transparency exists with this technique, the plane of glass clearly defines a boundary and a screen between the interior and exterior of the building.

On the south façade, the uninterrupted glass wall has a solar screen 3 feet in front of it, which is an aluminum hexagonal frame supporting a closely spaced series of aluminum rods. The hexagon motif is meant to be symbolic of molecular structure. This screen serves as a “veil” to filter sunlight and control glare, but also exists as a much larger architectural expression of surface. From within the building, the views out through the “screen” are maintained, yet there is a perceived reduction in glare. When viewing the building’s exterior from the south, this screen wall appears to have various degrees of transparency which changes depending on the angle of light and viewing distance. There are moments in time when the wall seems to be almost solid, with a reflective metallic sheen that is reminiscent of a brushed stainless steel. At other times, the screen wall seems as though it is a very light veil, elegantly filtering the light.

With the two upper floors of laboratory space and faculty offices, the goal was to bring natural light deep into the labs, and to illuminate the main corridor with as much natural daylight as possible. The northern wall of this long corridor is a continuous, floor-to-ceiling acid etched glass wall, which actually presents itself as more of a luminous surface. The borrowed daylight from the offices along the north façade becomes a diffuse glow once it reaches the corridor. By contrast, the southern wall of the corridor is more solid, with entrances into the labs marked by a series of recesses and display boards set within bamboo clad entry portals. The sliding display boards also act to conceal the many electrical panels that line the corridor.

Courtesy of Payette

The write-up desks for the researchers are located in an open office zone along the southern edge of the lab floors. This space is separated from the main laboratory by a fully glazed wall with a series of bamboo clad entry portals, echoing the design of the main corridor lab entrances. Southern light is filtered by the exterior screen wall and allowed to pass through the write-up space and deep into the research labs.

Brock University celebrated the official grand opening of the CFHBRC with a ribbon cutting ceremony on September 14, 2012. The project is striving for a LEED Silver certification, and has been designed in collaboration with the Toronto based firm architectsAlliance.
