MM Mixed-Use Complex in Manila, Philippines by CAZA

Sunday, May 14th, 2017

Article source: CAZA

For this urban complex, CAZA envisioned a lively mixed-use environment  that would accommodate luxury condominiums and a three-story  commercial center at the base. Informed by the exterior verandas and  courtyards, new dramatic sky terraces surmount the building, extending  a vertical sanctuary amidst the horizontal density of the Malate  district. CAZA’s design sustains a non-decorative, early-modernist  approach while forging a neoteric voice through a progression of  innovative interventions.

CAZA’s inaugural project in Colombia, La 100 is comprised of a cluster of high-end offices, hotels, and residential buildings in one of the city’s most densely populated areas. Each building is a unique color, playing off the long-held tradition of building with vibrantly pigmented bricks in Colombia. The backside of each building has a series of terraces that look out towards the Cerros mountain range. Throughout this expansive complex of mixed-use towers are a series of parks and public areas that unify the people and activities that occupy this fast-changing Bogota neighborhood.

Article source: CAZA 

The Ningbo Haishu Waterfront district is an island, surrounded by water on all four sides, offering a unique topographical setting in which to reimagine urban life in 21stcentury China. Contemporary Chinese cities have entered a new era of 21st-century urbanism. Old strategies for developing new districts no longer work: cities cannot rely on instant buildings, and iconic projects no longer beget their own economies.
