‘Westchester County Center’ Acoustics Revitalized by WSDG

Friday, November 9th, 2012

Article source: WSDG

An entrepreneur with a wide range of music business interests, Irwin Kornfeld has sparked new awareness for the eighty-year-old Westchester County Center.  A major upgrade of the facility’s acoustics, coupled with a state of the art sound system, has landed the WCC and its new “Pepe Infiniti Concert Series” on the radar of booking agents and performing artists seeking viable venues for tri-state concert dates.  The series’ launch featured The Beach Boys in concert in mid-May, nearly fifty years after their first WCC gig. The Johnny Winter Band and Edgar Winter Group, Boston, Il Volo, Whoopie Goldberg, Aretha Franklin and others are booked through November.

Rose Bay Apartments in Sydney, Australia by Hill Thalis Architecture + Urban Projects Pty Ltd

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

Article source: Hill Thalis Architecture

The Rose Bay Apartments project comprises 11 residential units, 2 shops and a basement carpark on a compact urban site.

The plan form of the building is a T form providing all units with cross ventilation. On each typical floor, two units face the street as a continuous street wall in accordance with Woollahra Council’s DCP for Rose Bay (also prepared by Hill Thalis). The upper levels have views towards the harbour and the leafy elevated outlook towards Vaucluse. Roof top terraces are provided to upper level apartments of the building. A third unit to the rear of the property is liberated from the property boundaries and shares no common walls with its neighbours – looking towards the extensive harbour and city views to the northwest.

Rosie House in Tokyo, Japan by ARTechnic architects

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

Article source: ARTechnic architects

“Overcome the disadvantage of the land condition, turn it into the beauty of the architecture”

When the client found this land, we were asked to give an advice.  It was a strip of pentagonal land facing west with only a pair of parallel boundary lines. Because of this land condition, it was valued lower, almost 30% larger than regular priced lands for the same cost.  Even though, the land was such an odd shape, we were sure that we could create a house with more freedom from the extra space by giving a careful attention to improve the land’s disadvantages such as an angle, orientation, height limitation and confined facade.  Therefore we suggested the client to go for it.

House Mosi was commissioned to Nico van der Meulen Architects with an explicit plan: the final product had to match the owner specifications.
