52 COUNCIL FLATS IN NANTERRE, France by Colboc Franzen & Associés

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Article source: Colboc Franzen & Associés

The Hoche ecodistrict is rising from the ground on old industrial sites. It has to mediate between the scale of the Chemin-de-l’Ile park and the A14 motorway that cuts through it, and the far smaller scale of an area of detached houses dating back to the 1930s. The two plots selected for the development are a good illustration of the challenge. The housing is divided into housing blocks that are look onto public space and face the eight-storey towers between them and the motorway and a square, but in the centre of the block are houses of the same dimensions as the existing detached houses.

14-Story Tower in the Miami by Studio Gang Architects

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

Article source: Studio Gang Architects

Studio Gang Architects is pleased to release its design for a 14-story tower that will rise in the vibrant Miami Design District. Supplemented by amenities such as a rooftop lounge and swimming pool, as well as retail at ground level, the tower’s 76 residential units are designed to take advantage of panoramic views of Biscayne Bay. The exterior of the building produces habitable spaces that function as a contemporary “Florida Room,” historic to the surrounding Buena Vista neighborhood. These shaded, open-air rooms provide both a thermal buffer for the interior and an outdoor space for relaxing and entertaining. The facade architecture demonstrates Studio Gang’s principle of exo-spatial high-rise design in which the inside extends to the outside in a dynamic spatial arrangement. Targeting LEED Gold, the project will incorporate performance features such as energy-saving solar shading and a rainwater collection system.

Living Zero in San Francisco, California by SUSTAINABLE.TO

Friday, October 10th, 2014

Article source: SUSTAINABLE.TO

In 2003, Architecture 2030 was established to respond to rapidly accelerating climate change. This has sparked extraordinary development in the field of renewable energy technology, allowing for buildings to become increasingly energy efficient.
The design intention was to establish the net-zero perspective from the eyes of the occupant. This project proposes a net-zero energy building in every aspect. Not only does the building produce more energy than it consumes through the use of building integrated photovoltaics, but it also attempts to foster a sense of community and a sustainable lifestyle through a vertical tower typology.
