Condo Canal Lachine in Quebec, Canada by C3 Studio

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

Article source: C3 Studio

c3studio’s interior architecture design for Condo Canal Lachine in Montréal (Québec, Canada) won top honors in the residential/kitchen category in the annual Quebec competition Grands Prix du Design in 2011. Beyond its apparent simplicity, the interior space of the residence reveals a visual personality that evokes a monolithic sculpture rather than simply a living space.

National Library of Public Information in Taichung, Taiwan by J. J. Pan & Partners (designed with Rhino and IDEAS)

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

Article source: J. J. Pan & Partners, Architects & Planners

Situated in the middle of the island of Taiwan, the National Library of Public Information occupies a site that is both geographically and metaphorically the confluence of information exploration and urban evolution. The striking form of the building features a “horizontal flow” theme recalling the early irrigation canals in the city’s settlement since the 18th century, as well as symbolizing the fluid data interface in the internet age.

Habitat 15 in Hollywood, California by Predock Frane Architects (designed using AutoCAD and Rhino)

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

Article source: Predock Frane Architects

DESIGN INTENT: Working within the context of a for-profit MUR creates a particular set of parameters; programmatic, physical, and client/cost informed. Our solution is two 4-story buildings placed parallel to the street. Between them is a courtyard, reached via a tunnel through the first building, accommodating shared public space and circulation. The simple cubic shape of the buildings allowed for greater project resources to be deployed to the sectional relations within the units. The separation into two buildings allows half of the unit’s access to light on three sides.

Claremont Residence in Los Angeles, California by Altius Architecture (designed using ArchiCAD)

Sunday, March 4th, 2012

Article source: Altius Architecture

This home is sited on an amazing property that offered both the intimacy of a classic English landscape as well as expansive panoramic views over rolling, rural fields towards Lake Ontario. The goal of the design was to embrace the immediate intimacy of the site while revealing, through the architecture, the extensive views offered from various vantage points within the home. The exposed heavy timber Douglas Fir structure hugs the landscape allowing large expanses of glass to bring the surroundings inside while providing dramatic moments when the endless view exposes itself.
