Ambulance facility in Zeist, the Netherlands by Architectenforum

Thursday, November 2nd, 2017

Article source: Architectenforum

The ambulance station in Zeist is a sustainable design. The client asked for a nearly energy neutral building constructed with renewable materials.

The building is located on the outskirts of town, near the edge of a forest. The L-shaped plan is carefully positioned between existing trees. A large beech tree shades the 4 meter high window in the main staffroom. An ambulance post has no public function, patients will never enter this building. We decided to design no façade facing the road to the entrance of the nearby hospital. Instead green sloping walls rise from the ground and transform into in the curved line of the roof, blending in with the surrounding trees and the edge of the woodlands.

As Lemay celebrates 60 years of groundbreaking design, a review of its most defining projects—Montreal’s Four Seasons Hotel and Residences[i], the Bibliothèque du Boisé[ii], Montreal’s Place Vauquelin and Place d’Armes, the new international jetty at Montreal-Trudeau Airport[iii], Quebec City’s Paquet Wharf and the protective glass casing of the Grand Théâtre de Québec; the coastal promenade of the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca, the Holiday Inn’s glamorous new look in Brooklyn, NY—is proof that its long and much-awarded history shapes its present and future as one of Canada’s leading integrated design services firms.

01. Mirroring the environment, the bridge is an elliptical disk. An off-centered hole leaves open views into the gap between the two rock faces. A strong net allows courageous visitors to lay down in the void.

Skylight Tower in La Défense, Paris by Louis Paillard architect & urban planner

Friday, October 27th, 2017

Article source: Paillard architect & urban planner

“The opportunity to build apartments at La Défense remains a rare one. All the more so an apartment tower (top floor at 50 m). In fact, some thirty years have passed since the building of the last one. The district of La Défense, willed into existence by General de Gaulle to show the world of the 1960s that France was entering into the modern world of finance and business (the famous “Trente Glorieuses” or thirty-year post-war boom), is a curious above-ground urban mixture, an artificial island, veritable realm of “corporate architecture” punctuated by multitude of high-rise office towers, business centers, rather hollow official monuments, shopping centers and a few public housing complexes, the whole placed atop an immense, windswept concrete slab and irrigated from below by a labyrinth of vehicular arteries, railway tunnels among other piped networks.

Article source: Izaskun Chinchilla

According to many studies, the coworking phenomenon is intrinsicly associated to the urban lifestyle. The density and diversity of people and oportunities that a big metropolis produces, encourages the apparition of places where its fundamental purpouse is sharing creativity. This is why it seemed natural for us that our spaces payed tribute and were inspired by great cities.

The re-invention of the call centre in Zurich, Switzerland by Evolution Design

Wednesday, October 25th, 2017

Article source: Evolution Design

When you think of a call centre you probably picture a line of people seated in row upon row of desks in a featureless back room. But call centres are changing. In many companies, they are now the first point of contact with customers and are increasingly important in growing new business and ensuring customer satisfaction. High tech and fast paced, with multiple contact points from email and messaging systems to video and voice calls, they also require motivated and well-trained staff. As companies recognise their growing importance, the boiler room approach is disappearing and call centres are beginning to morph into a corporate centrepiece.
