Visitor Centre in Australia by Jonathan Gibb – Architect

Saturday, September 29th, 2012

Article source: Jonathan Gibb – Architect

The split form is at once an ode to the landforms of the genus loci (rock out-crops) and the cultural interweave of local cultures. The building is distinctly two forms, the same yet mirrored & reversed to give a individuality & yet allowing each to speak – open faced to one another in constant dialogue. This dialogue is continued to the landscape by the form of the building, mimicking the shafts of rock and forming of stairs.

SA Residence in Dhaka, Bangladesh by Shatotto Architecture

Friday, September 28th, 2012

Article source: Shatotto Architecture

The human form has two parts – body as the shell and thoughts as the soul. Architecture is similar, the building envelope as the shell and nature as the soul.

The building envelope of this three-storey residence is a pure square, constructed of a single material, cast-concrete. The sphere, the universal celestial form, in this case is transformed to its terrestrial expression in the shape of a square.

With an area of over 90% covered by subtropical virgin forest, the entire island is designated as a national park. The client had lived on Iriomote- Island for 14 years. Now he wanted to build his own house.While sitting snug against a hill, at the front of the house a luxorious vision opens up overlooking the farmlands that spread around the site.

D1 Canopy Design in Dubai creek, UAE by Innovarchi

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

Article source:  Innovarchi

D1 is an 80 storey & residential tower on the shore of Dubai Creek in the UAE. It is to be one of the showpieces of a new development area called “the Culture Village”. There are two main components of the development, the glass tower itself and an elegant timber canopy screen at the base. For the overall tower design Sunland was inspired by the Sydney Olympic Torch and the Q1 tower on the Gold Coast in Australia. Innovarchi was asked to re-design the facades to emphasise the sheer nature of the layered glass curtain wall. Like the petals of a rose, the primary façades are conceived as a series of delicate layers to protect against the harsh environment. The façade layers are continuous, monolithic, smooth and seamless, without texture.

House Ber in Midrand, South Africa by Nico van der Meulen Architects

Saturday, September 22nd, 2012

Article source: Nico van der Meulen Architects

House Ber has come to life in response to the client’s request for a contemporary, iconic house with no opportunity for unnecessary space, whilst featuring open plans and airy characteristics. And right in response to that and to the rules of the estate, which bans burglar bars, the architects presented a plan inspired with random steel bars used around the house, which could possibly keep flying elephants out!

Victoria 73 in Cape Town, South Africa by SAOTA – Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects

Friday, September 21st, 2012

Article source: SAOTA – Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects

The brief called for a dynamic response to capitalise on the site, by creating an environment where the young family could enjoy an outdoor lifestyle.

The design was driven by the need to create a family home, which accommodated the kitchen, living and dining room in one space. The secondary living area was to be an entertainment space. The pool terrace allows for covered and uncovered areas to relax around the pool. The entertainment lounge accommodates a generous bar, and is close to the outdoor braai area. A dramatic gazebo structure is perched at the edge of the pool deck.

House in Menorca, Spain by Dom Arquitectura

Friday, September 21st, 2012

Article source: Dom Arquitectura

Being a summer house, the main idea is not only creating the interior spaces of the house, but distribute all outer space. The interior spaces seek good relations with the outside world, colonizing their surroundings and their
views.

Velodrome in Culiacan, Mexico by Bunker Arquitectura

Friday, September 21st, 2012

Article source: Emelio Barjau

Professional cycling has developed enormously in the State of Sinaloa, Mexico, in the last decade.  Several international star athletes have brought attention to the sport, fueled by Olympic victories and enthusiastic press.  Consequently there is an interest in building Culiacan´s new velodrome, as well as incorporating policies that favor cycling as a mode of transportation into the city’s plans for new public spaces.  Our vision channels this newfound enthusiasm for cycling into a single thread that unites a professional sports building with a cycling-oriented park development.
