VONNA in Madrid, Spain by PYO Arquitectos

 
May 9th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

The new separates from the existing. Thus, the shop window carpentry is attached to the facade anchoring from the outside, “presenting” the existing structure, appropriating its qualities, detaching itself from it and putting it in value. Its execution, its assembly and its detail are a presentation of the interior intervention.

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.

Radical Tabula Rasa

In 2006, Atelier Kempe Thill is commissioned to design Block 10 in the Moerwijk neighborhood of The Hague with eighty-eight apartments and twenty-seven terraced houses as the result of a negotiation procedure by Vestia, the largest building corporation in the Netherlands.

Moerwijk is a typical restructuring area with residential buildings from the nineteen-sixties, as also exist in many large cities in the Netherlands. Also here, the city and housing corporations agreed on the comprehensive demolition of the entire area rather than renovation of the existing buildings.

095 Letto in Madrid, Spain by elii [oficina de arquitectura]

 
May 9th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: elii [oficina de arquitectura]

Project for the refurbishment of an old flat in downtown Madrid, for ‘anonymous’ residents that will be sharing their domestic space in the future.

The proposal is arranged around six strips with alternating living areas and service areas. This arrangement optimises the floor space while also guaranteeing the utmost functional flexibility and the incorporation of other possible programmes, such as co-working spaces, a study, offices, etc. A wooden box is installed on the entry axis to divide the space into a public area and a private area, although the system employs a number of swivelling and sliding doors to improve the choice of circulations within the house so that it is possible to lead independent lives while sharing the common elements.

Cycling Center in Tiszafüred, Hungary by Ferdinand and Ferdinand Architects

Article source: Ferdinand and Ferdinand Architects

10- 15 years ago the topic of mobility gained momentum in the Hungarian contemporary architecture. Many young architects realised that a major  task of the next generation of architects/enginiers and urban designes will be the redefinition and reshaping of the existing urban infrastructure.  Architecture and mobility will have implications not only on the traffic systems (means of traffic) of the 21st century, they will have impact on social spaces, public parks, as well.

North Vancouver City Hall in Canada by MGA | MICHAEL GREEN ARCHITECTURE

The City of North Vancouver’s 38,000 sq. ft. renovation project expanded the existing 1970’s modern heritage building into a recently vacated library structure, with a new bridging atrium. The design team’s goal was to create a very public building; about the community and for the community. The design is open and transparent. The main link between all departments and the public is found in the 67 metre (220 foot) long atrium space. The design creates a flexible, productive working environment for the diverse services offered to the public in the building, and reinforces the city’s aspirations to showcase their new sustainable city mandate.
