Article source: Estudio Lamela

Today the Astro Tower in Brussels (Belgium) is presented, which after its renovationled by Estudio Lamela and its Belgianpartners Altiplan Architects—becomes Europe’s tallest green building in terms of energy consumption and savings. The project represents the profoundrefurbishment of an icon of the city to respond to the requirements of sustainability required by a 21st century city. At the same time, it renews the skyline of the city. “When we won the contest in 2010, we opted forcompletely rehabilitating the building from the original structure and preserving its essence. To do this, we replaced the facades with others that provide more luminosity and, more importantly, we gained the energy control of the tower, affirms Carlos Lamela, director of Estudio Lamela.

Moholt 50|50 – Timber Towers in Trondheim, Norway by MDH Arkitekter

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

Article source: MDH Arkitekter

Student housing often drown in mediocrity, with simple units stacked on top of each other in the cheapest way possible and left to themselves without support programs. The Moholt 50|50 project is a reaction to this. By inserting new housing collectives and a wide range of support services and public programs into an existing student village built in the sixties, a new active central area is created, erasing the psychological border between the student village and the surrounding area.
