O’biz Tower Lobby design in Anyang-si, South Korea by anD + MOTOElastico

Friday, July 10th, 2015

Article source: anD + MOTOElastico

The lobby of an office building is a place where people transits and pass through; it is a ‘not-place’, almost by definition, as the airport waiting area, almost devoid of their own identity. It is an ‘object’ almost alien, home to almost strangers or people who have closely job relationships.

After emerging as competition winners in 2013, Vienna based architects Zechner & Zechner were commissioned with the design of the 115m-tall ORBI Tower high-rise project. Now construction has started for the new tower. On the journey from Vienna’s airport to the city centre there is no avoiding the urban-development project TownTown, where the new tower is located.

Skyone Tower – A legend in the sky by M/s Creative Group

Friday, June 19th, 2015

Article source: M/s Creative Group

In today’s day and age, most of the architecture that surrounds us becomes a kind of background hum, to be noticed only when it is exceptionally striking. When our eyes move around in our surroundings, do we notice the box-shaped edifices that existed in the past or that one building that irks our imagination? The answer is clear and undeniable. A structure that speaks volumes through its design, the Skyone Tower reinforces the term “standing out in a crowd.” An inception of the Creative Group, the curious architects wanted to innovate a building that not only sustains the ability to influence the emotions of the human mind but also encapsulates functionality.

Waagenturm by Wilk-Salinas Architekten

Friday, June 5th, 2015

Article source: Wilk-Salinas Architekten 

The Waagenturm is a tower to control the access and weight of the trucks of the BRB, a Berlin-based company for the disposal and recycling of construction materials. In order to reduce the dimensions of the construction the stairs were planned as an exterior area, which covers in the ground floor almost the same space as the closed areas. It is attached to one of the narrow sides of the tower, which is supported by a single central pillar in order to avoid pillars on the corners. The three rooms are distributed in three levels and open to the outer spaces by means of big windows along the façade which also cover the corners. In the first level is the control room, the second level is the director’s office, and in the lower ground floor are the toilets, showers and storerooms. The materials used are the recycled concrete produced by the company, corten steel for the stairs and black profiles for the windows.

Torre Tres Picos in Mexico by LBR + A

Thursday, June 4th, 2015

Article source: LBR + A 

Situated in one of Mexico City’s most important areas, Tres Picos responds to its urban condition of a complex triangular plot of only 167 square meters enclosed by three streets. Its architectural design consists of two structural steel plate walls supporting a glass prism of 10 levels, thus clearing the floor space of columns. In combination with the thin steel walls, the tridilosa, a three-dimensional structure slab system, made a 7 meter span possible in the glass façade directed towards the Chapultepec Park. The modular steel panels were designed to be an aesthetic finish and to optimize construction by facilitating on-site assembly. The light weight structural system allows for a free floor in the office space and at ground level, primarily benefiting pedestrians.

New’R, ZAC EuroNantes Gare in Nantes, France by Hamonic+Masson & Associés architects

Sunday, May 3rd, 2015

Article source: Hamonic+Masson & Associés architects

This emblematic project in the EuroNantes quarter introduces a gradation in the way people live in the air. The lower floors come in varying kinds of outside spaces with plant bins built into the railings. The higher floors, above any obstructed views, have terraces that become big panoramic screens with winter gardens protected from winds and bad weather. The script is honed and simple. The building reflects an image of great sobriety. Encased in light-coloured metal sidings, the façades catch the light in a constantly changing play of reflected light. Work on the skyline introduces variations in forms and varying ownership of the roofs. This enables different scales of views to people looking at the building from a distance and a diversity of places for the building’s users. The design plays on the idea of movement, backgrounds and multiplicity. Architecture in cinema scope.
