A steel cube supported by concrete walls is the image of a bakery company with an industrial process, located in a new area of corporative buildings.

A new industrial concept for a company dedicated to the production of  traditional and elaborated bread of massive consumption , incorporating top technology to all  panification processes.

H-Orange in Tokyo, Japan by Takuro Yamamoto Architects (designed with Vectorworks)

Saturday, April 7th, 2012

Article source: Takuro Yamamoto

H-ORANGE is an independent house featured by the character of its site, which is located next to a small field and large woods, although it is placed in the center of Tokyo.

To emphasize the scene of the woods and big blue sky above the field, west side of the second floor is widely opened with horizontal windows, and a large open-air terrace is located to surround the floor including the living room. With this arrangement, the residents can enjoy the harvest of the vast space above the field. But the view of the field itself is not really beautiful because it was insensitively walled by bricks and these walls seemed to give closed feeling of the place.

CII in Los Angeles, California by Koning Eizenberg Architecture (designed using Revit and SketchUp)

Friday, April 6th, 2012

Article source: Koning Eizenberg Architecture

This 47,000 sq. ft. project entails the adaptive reuse and creative rehabilitation of two lightindustrial warehouse buildings in a gritty inner-city Los Angeles neighborhood. On a tight budget, the design deinstitutionalizes the sensitive social functions of the organization, through a combination of innovative organizational planning and the limited insertion of simple (but creative) new architectural systems within the renovated existing building shell. The program includes a preschool, individual therapy rooms, administrative offices, and large multipurpose spaces for community programs.

Hancock Lofts in West Hollywood, California by Koning Eizenberg Architecture (designed using Revit and SketchUp)

Friday, April 6th, 2012

Article source: Koning Eizenberg Architecture

A developer/architect team was selected by the City of West Hollywood to develop a city owned site, address a shortage of parking, and flush out a program for housing and retail space through a community process. The design’s non-conventional approach leverages the irregular, sloping lot to reinforce street life as well as create an unexpected roof top open space. Public parking is located underground while residential parking loops up and over street level housing to place an active use along the side street. Architectural expression is rooted in sustainable strategies. All units are cross ventilated and sliding wood screens are used to shade boulevard flats and moderate the level of engagement with the busy street below.

California Dreaming in Tasmania, Australia by Bild Architecture (designed with Rhino 3D)

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

Article source: Bild Architecture

California Dreamingis one of a continuing series of projects exploring adaptations of Australian suburban typologies to contemporary housing requirements. Located in an area of inner-urban Launceston originally developed with inter-war ‘California Bungalow’ type housing, the project adapts and co-ops this typology to contemporary living styles and expectations for a pair of duplex residential units.Unfashionable for many years this area of the city lay dormantafter its initial wave of development, preserving an enclave of inter-war speculative housing. However in recent years, with sudden gentrification, the area has seen a new wave of housing occupying the abundant infill opportunities. These new occupants, reflective of contemporary ways of living and ways of building sit in stark contrast with the area’s original houses.

Bird Watching Spot in Asuncion, Paraguay by Pedro Barrail + Marcelo Barrail + Lourdes Mendez (designed with SketchUp Pro)

Wednesday, April 4th, 2012

Article source: Pedro Barrail

This project is a bird watching spot. Fundacion milenio and hsbc bank financed it. This place is very important, because asuncion has always been looking away from the river, and with these types of proyects they are finally looking towards the river. This area is a bay, and is very important for bird migration, because hundreds of bird species rest in this area in order to continue their journey, so not only do you see native birds, but also exotic ones. Asuncion has almost lost it’s integration to nature, however, projects like these are trying to strengthen that bond.
