The museum consists of a completely closed, opaque and abstract box. Just the main façade has a concavity that marks the entrance of the building. It houses a private colection of mechanical music boxes.

The organization is cruciform, around a central patio, that distributes to the buildings four sides. In one side there is the lobby, that works as a vertical distribution space, and to the other sides are three galleries of varying sizes. The transition between each of these four spaces is done through four antechambers.

House at Neil Road in Singapore by ONG&ONG Pte Ltd

Located within a conservation district, this home celebrates the traditional charm of Peranakan shophouses with the addition of new spaces that are sensitive to the building’s rich heritage.

Akin to traditional shophouses, the spaces are interspersed with courtyards that serve as visual focal points. The original courtyard – with its preserved ornate fish mould centerpiece and accompanying water feature – forms the heart of the common areas while a newer courtyard marks the transition from the old structure into its new extension. A young tree in the centre of this new courtyard adds a touch of nature to the urban ensemble. To the rear of the house are the kitchen and a retro spiral staircase that leads to the second floor master bedroom and rooftop terrace.

Hexoffice in Istanbul, Turkey by Slash Architects and Arkizon Architects

Article source: pRchitect communications consultancy

The Hexoffice Building is situated in Gayrettepe, one of the developing business sites. The goal is to create an innovative A plus building in the existing building pattern of the area. The main approach to design the building aims to separate the circulation and office area both in terms of mass proportions and facade. The circulation and service areas of the building are situated on the west side by occupying as minimum space as possible and creating maximum space for the office usage. The building has double facade mesh which creates controlled lighting of the office areas whereas the circulation and service areas are closed with an opaque facade. The green terraces located in every floor of the building increases the happiness of the employees and tears the pattern of the facade.

Kai Tak Primary School in Hong Kong by ArchSD

A school is a community: a micro-society, a mini city within a city. It is an oasis yet has a direct relationship with the city at large. Our idea is simple; the spatial concept for the Kai Tak Primary School is to bring the students and teachers together with the playground and other spaces and activities, to encourage interactions. Breaking away from the typical densely built 8-storey school building in Hong Kong with the ball court on the ground, this school adopts a low-rise 4-storey design, with the basketball court raised on the first floor, sited in the middle of the school campus, creating a focus, pulling together spaces and activities.
