Transit Oriented City in Dongtan, South Korea by Ojanen Chiou Architects

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

Article source: Ojanen Chiou Architects

Designed by SWA Group with Ojanen Chiou Architects LLP, the 157 hectare Dongtan Central Business Master Plan is at the heart of Dongtan City: a new urban center located just 30 km south of Seoul in South Korea.  The development zone is situated on a former agricultural plain that had been taken over by various industrial uses.  Bounded by a river to the west and mountainous terrain to the east, this zone is bisected by a major transportation corridor connecting Seoul with the southern reaches of the country.  At the core of the development is a transit center that will accommodate high-speed and metropolitan rail stations connecting with a bi-modal (bus + tram) transit system, and long-distance and city buses, establishing Dongtan City as a major regional transit hub.

BC House in Monterrey, Mexico by GLR Arquitectos

Our project is in a privileged topographic situation, due to its visual condition of greater height in relation to the surrounding neighbors. This allows the house to enjoy excellent vistas towards the National Park of Chipinque in the south, as well as towards all of the east, which is dominated in the horizon by the \”Cerro de la Silla\”, an emblematic hill in the boundaries of the city of Monterrey.

Light Center Speyer in Greater Frankfurt area, Germany by Peter Stasek Architect

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

Article source: Peter Stasek Architect

The showroom of the new Light Center Speyer, situated in a factory building, was to be designed as exhibition space, consulting area and meeting place. Here, a frame generating interior design synergy effects was to be created for all latest light trends, technologies and light designs. Its sophisticated structure was to build the backbone of the entire light exhibition, but at the same time was never to overshadow the priority of the lighting objects to be exhibited.

House Bar / Cave Bar in Manhattan, New York by Barker Freeman Design Office (designed with Generative Components and Maxwell)

Friday, December 23rd, 2011

Article source: Barker Freeman Design Office

With these two proposals for a bar in the East Village in Manhattan, we employed a striking silhouette on the façade to bring presence to the space on the street. With House Bar, we used painted, perforated MDF panels to continue the house profile on the interior, which terminates in a DJ booth at the end of the room. Lighting filters through the perforations to provide ambient illumination.

Blurred House in Melbourne, Australia by BiLD Architecture (designed using Rhino)

Friday, December 23rd, 2011

Article source: BiLD architecture

The first in a series of studies into the adaptation of vernacular Australian suburban typologies, ‘Blurred House’ is a major renovation and extension to an original 1930’s Californian bungalow in Melbourne’s inner-north. Reacting to the established convention of residential extension which prescribes a jarring juxtaposition of existing ‘old’ and introduced ‘new’ architectural elements; the ‘Blurred House’ offers an alternative proposition; that of a blurring between ‘old’ and ‘new’ to produce a hybrid. Gradually transitioning from the vernacular to the contemporary, the division of architectural elements are deliberately ambiguous, producing a unique formal and visual language.

Brighton Implant Clinic in England by Pedra Silva Arquitectos

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

Article source: Pedra Silva Arquitectos

In the world of medicine where leading edge technology and science are key factors in services provided to patients, the opportunity arose to design the premises for an advanced dentistry practice – the Brighton Implant Clinic. The site is a brick Victorian building in Brighton, United Kingdom and is made up of a basement and four floors above ground. The practise is composed of a dental prosthetics lab where dentures and implants are fabricated on the same day as the patient is being treated, allowing the patient to leave the premises with a concluded treatment not having to return to the practice in the future. The practice also has a state of the art CAT scan allowing three-dimensional imagery of the skull in order to assist surgeons in the placement of implants.
