Redondeado in Madrid, Spain by Ojo de Pez, Arquitectura

Friday, May 26th, 2017

Article source: Ojo de Pez, Arquitectura

The body in motion activates the space, introduces a relative order of extent, weight and density, volume. With its trajectory linking different fragments. It shows how can be occupied. The architecture provides information to the body. As a stage, introduces specific codes, set the game board. It promotes certain attitudes, stimulates positions and movements among other less related. Interferences between both establish a more complete sphere, a micro cosmos.

Center for the National Property Heritage in Mexico by Victor Marquez Arquitectos VMA

Sunday, May 21st, 2017

Article source: Victor Marquez Arquitectos VMA

The old colonial neighborhood of Coyoacan comprises some of the more notable cultural institutions of Mexico and the new national Center for Patrimonial Heritage is added to the list. The center´s main concept spins around the need to turn a private complex into a public space; thus, the programmatic idea of breaking the parts in order to organize them in smaller low-rise buildings that could eventually display certain design personality and preserve the existent trees and vegetation, made sense. Therefore the center will be displayed in four different buildings: the museum and workshops, the preservation and office building, the auditorium, and the café / library structure. Once we secured the existent trees and plants, we proceeded to establish the project zoning and arrangement. Within the concept of dispersion, we decided to hinge and organize buildings around the open spaces. Therefore, we aimed that visitors would navigate through a number of interlocked gardens, plazas, paths, patios, etc. that will eventually unfold and reveal a number of architectural elements and gestures. From the overall aesthetic composition, some buildings have been thought as solid and massive creating a deliberate contrast to others that are conceived as translucent or transparent. Decisions made in this sense respond mostly to dealing with finding the right balance between energy savings, aesthetics and human activity.

Vegetable Trellis in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam by Cong Sinh Architects

Sunday, May 14th, 2017

Article source: Cong Sinh Architects 

Today, the target for hunger reduction is on a global scale. In Asia Pacific, 12% of the population is in bad health because of a lack of food, and just in Vietnam from 2014 to 2016, this number is 11%, which means that 10.3 million people are underfed.

Global climate change has been influencing the agricultural productivity in many areas. Especially in Vietnam today, sea level rise, droughts and salt marsh usually occur in Southern provinces. The aforementioned problems have greatly affected the national food security, which requires us to have appropriate and practical solutions.

The Lost Column in Sicilia, Italy by atelier qbe3

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

Article source: atelier qbe3

The Maddalena peninsula is a rare architectural and landscape quality system, subject to constraints in 2004 with the establishment of Protected Marine Area. For these reasons, the design approach would be result in an entire territorial system absolute respect and preserving the image and environmental structure.

According to these thoughts we decided to design an “utopian” and “visionary” form. The project idea, in accordance with the guidelines of the call, is based on theoretical assumptions that follow a fantasy story of historical facts about “Magna Grecia” territory.

360 Villa in The Netherlands by 123DV

Sunday, April 9th, 2017

Article source: 123DV

The family consists of a couple and their beautiful Alaskan malamute dogs. This time, our slogan ‘Living in a tailored suit’ got a special dynamic: the tailoring of our design to the requirements of an ultimate personal experience of living also concerned the arctic dogs that are important in their lives. It is important for the couple to stay in contact with their dogs, both in and outside of the house. The dogs ask a lot of attention and therefore they need a lot of contact with their owners. Also the dogs need a shelter outside.

Parterre One in Kaserne Basel, Switzerland by FOCKETYN DEL RIO STUDIO

Sunday, April 9th, 2017

Article source: FOCKETYN DEL RIO STUDIO

Parterre One is located in Kaserne Basel, a heritage protected ensemble in the heart of Basel. Kaserne used to be military barracks and has been converted into a cultural hub for the last 50 years, since the army left. Our client had a new vision for his corner: he had a restaurant, a bar, and a venue that were next to each other but never worked together. Our mission was to make one cultural and leisure pole with the three of them.  Within this frame the project became an architectural geode: an existing building with refreshed facades and a surprising interior around a thunderbolt gallery.

Spring Street Salt Shed in New York by Dattner Architects

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

Article source: Dattner Architects

Located at the terminus of Canal Street at the Hudson River, the Salt Shed’s crystalline, faceted planes enliven this highly visible structure. The cast-in-place concrete structure tapers toward the bottom—creating more pedestrian space—and rises from a glazed moat that will be illuminated at night. The Salt Shed’s solid, crystalline surface acts as a counterpoint to the diaphanous, scrim-like façade of the Manhattan 1/2/5 Garage, directly across Spring Street to the north. Rising nearly 70 feet, the shed houses 5,000 tons of salt and has already become an iconic landmark at this important intersection.

Design Hotel Hyatt Regency in Dusseldorf, Germany by slapa oberholz pszczulny I architekten

Sunday, March 12th, 2017

Article source: slapa oberholz pszczulny I architekten

Design Hotel Hyatt Regency stands at the tip of the harbour basin in Dusseldorf’s Media Harbour, one of the city’s architectural signposts. sop architekten realised its Hafenspitze master plan along Speditionstraße, which includes a pedestrian bridge, two glass towers, a pavilion and a seven-storey office building.

The 65-metre high double high-rise – with the hotel in the east building – expresses a strongly reduced formal language. The timeless, tension-filled architecture springs solely from the form of the buildings’ main bodies and their juxtaposition with one another. As a result, the two parallel high-rise slabs create a virtual cube, which develops a sculptural quality through its various sections and interstitial spaces.

Hill Top Cottage in NSW, Australia by Luigi Rosselli Architects

Thursday, February 23rd, 2017

Article source: Luigi Rosselli Architects

Weaving architectural heritage with contemporary design and lifestyle is a practice that rewards with surprises and characterful places.

In a conservative residential pocket close to North Sydney, a workers cottage perches on top of a hill looking south-east towards striking views of Sydney Harbour.  The idea behind the design was to retain the existing character of the cottage to the front – its low slung and strong horizontal lines – and place a more contemporary two storey addition at the back behind the ridge.  The new upper level is fully clad with CNC routed plywood shutters, it pierces the ample roof plane to the front of the house with a wide dormer window that is curved at the corners.

The “Craftsman’s” cottage style of the first decades of the 20th century was characterised by a simple gable roof with low eaves that ran parallel to the street with a horizontal elevation, the complete opposite to the California Bungalow style, with its gables facing the front boundary. The first floor attic dormer and garage have been designed with stretched and horizontal proportions. The existing ground floor windows have new sliding plywood shutters. The sandstone walls have adopted the same type of coursing and jointing as the existing stone footings of the house, Image Courtesy © Justin Alexander
