Single House Re-Using a Former Water Cistern in Madrid, Spain by Valdivieso Arquitectos

Saturday, March 25th, 2017

Article source: Valdivieso Arquitectos 

Building a single-occupancy home over a former water cistern was the starting point of the project. The site, subsequently altered over time, reached its final configuration circa 1955. It has two levels, facing south, and has remained unaltered since then. The site is part of a low-density suburban environment, which belongs to a development model distinctive of peripheral areas, characteristic of the first third of the 20th century as the summer stays residential areas in the mountain range of Madrid. The site contains typical scrubland vegetation, increased with non-native but suitable species, conditioned by the region´s dry continental climate (very warm summers and very cold winters).

RIVERSPORT Rapids: 

A state-of-the-art facility, RIVERSPORT Rapids is one of only four in the world. It was designed by the same team that developed the U.K.’s Lee Valley White Water Centre for the 2012 London Olympics and is similar to North Carolina’s U.S. National Whitewater Center.

Geared for both family fun and elite athlete training, the 11-acre RIVERSPORT Rapids whitewater center was completed as part of MAPS 3, the one-cent sales tax initiative dedicated to metro area projects.

Lasalle Waterworks Building in Montreal, Canada by Affleck de la Riva architects

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

Article source: Affleck de la Riva architects

The history of civilisations and cities are intrinsically tied to the presence of water.  Ancient civilisations grew up in fertile river valleys and the development of cities depended on the ready availability of water for both potable use and public sanitation.  The infrastructure used to control and distribute water in the urban environment has a long and distinguished architectural history.

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.
