Corix Water Systems by Taylor Kurtz Architecture + Design

Thursday, September 26th, 2013

Article source: Taylor Kurtz Architecture + Design

This 78,000sf steel frame and concrete tilt panel facility provides manufacturing, warehouse and office space for the tenant, Corix Water Systems and Utilities.

Designed in response to a significantly sloping site, the main entrance and office floor is raised above the street level permitting a high quality of street-front expression while maintaining a low profile consistent with the neighbourhood context.

The entrance plaza and canopy, detailed in concrete, steel, glass and cedar dominate the visual expression of the street-front elevation and set a tone that is more professional in appearance than industrial as one would expect in a development of this type. Adjacent to the entry canopy, a carefully considered composition of glazed slot monitor windows complete the street front elevation, permitting natural light to the warehouse and breaking down the scale of the street-facing north wall. The varied roof lines of these elements helps to further reduce the scale and visual bulk that is typical in industrial warehouse buildings.

Below the office level is the Shop Floor, anchored by a 17,000sf manufacturing shop, contractor warehouse, storage warehouse, offices and grade level access to loading and receiving bays at the south and east yards. Adjacent to the central circulation and elevator core, a suite of feature spaces including testing labs, assembly rooms and geothermal centre are arranged to facilitate tours and to showcase the varied products and systems manufactured by Corix.

Glacial Water Botteling Plant in Patagonia, Chile by Panorama Arquitectos

Saturday, June 2nd, 2012

Article source: Panorama Arquitectos

The project is situated in the border of Queulat National Park in Patagonia, 3 hours away from Cohiaique, which is the nearest city. This compromised the material and construction logistics decisions to secure its construction quality and ageing because of tough climate conditions. The project was built in 4 months. The process consists of bottled glacial water.

Water Circle (Cheong-Shim Purification Center) in Korea by UnSangDong Architects

Saturday, February 18th, 2012

Article source: UnSangDong Architects

Silence & movement

Most of all, we focused on a robust, simple and tranquil architecture intuitively as we take up the form and space. Another point we considered is a vigorous architecture which evoke water vitality in still emotion. The circular form symbolises pure crystal of living organisms. Circular plan which is 32 metres in diameter, 11 metres in height soars from the ground. Firm, still and refined curve wall opens with gradual, arbitrary and rhythmic rules. We expect another tone colour through the open and solid curved wall. Musical facade is achieved through this project it plays in andante, moderato and allegro. It conveys silence and movement simultaneously.

Emscher Kunst in Essen, Germany by OOZE

Between the Waters: The Emscher Community Garden

The project Between the Waters: The Emscher Community Garden is located at one of the narrowest points on Emscher Island, between the Emscher River and the Rhine-Herne Canal. The walk through the project starts next to the Rhine-Herne Canal, with visitors entering the Community Garden; it then leads uphill beside the fully exposed water supply and treatment installation. The walk ends on an elevated platform above the Emscher River dyke. Here visitors can view the challenging topography of the landscape and see for themselves how the highly polluted (and for this reason fenced-off) Emscher River is elevated above the nearby towns, which have sunk as a result of mining activity in the previous century. Looking down the slope towards the Rhine-Herne Canal, they have a clear view of the complex water processing installation, which works with the water on the site between the two waterways.
