Platanenkubus Nagold in Germany by Ludwig.Schoenle

 
December 27th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Ludwig.Schoenle

The Plane-Tree-Cube was designed as a contribution for the Regional Horticultural Show in Nagold in 2012. It was conceptualized as a long-term Baubotanik experiment within an urban context. By the help of “Plan Addition” techniques, a green cube with an edge length of 10 meters was created that, right from the beginning, had the dimension of a full-grown tree. Initially, young plane trees are arranged in plant containers on six levels. They form green walls around a space open to the sky.

Oasia Hotel Downtown in Singapore by WOHA

 
December 27th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: WOHA 

A verdant tower of green in the heart of Singapore’s dense Central Business District (CBD), Oasia Hotel Downtown is a prototype of land use intensification for the urban tropics. Unlike the sleek and sealed skyscrapers that evolved out of the temperate west, this tropical “living tower” offers an alternative image to the sleek technology of the genre.

Inspired by the local vernacular architecture, House in countryside type C is one of four sustainable houses designed by Renato Pucci from Archilea architecture studio and the local architect Giovanni Carignani for the town of Capannori, in the landscape of Toscana (Italy).

The goal was to design a modern and efficient house surrounded by a big garden, near the Visona creek for a single family.

The dwelling takes advantage of its peaceful and isolated location to allow the programs to maximize natural light and the view of the landscape.

Article source: Peter Salter 

Walmer Yard is the first residential scheme in Britain by Peter Salter, the internationally acclaimed teacher and architectural designer. Seven years in the making, four finely crafted houses built around a shared courtyard in Notting Hill are now being shown to the architectural press.

The houses reflect Salter’s unique approach to the design of spaces for living. The structure, volumes and materials are employed to create a series of rooms and circulation spaces that are precisely tuned to domestic use, private peace and sensory experience.

Shoesme in Tilburg, The Netherlands by Joris Verhoeven Architectuur

 
December 27th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Joris Verhoeven Architectuur 

The new headquarters of Shoesme, a childrens shoe’s manufacturer in Tilburg, has been given two different faces. This conscious duality originated from its location in the city.

On one side, the building has a classical facade that radiates allure and status and blends seamlessly into the historic ribbon structure of the city. The gap in this typical street structure is filled with a building that always seems to have stood there. As if a missing link is put in the chain.

RM HOUSE in Romano d’Ezzelino, Italy by Studio di Architettura Claude Petarlin

 
December 27th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Studio di Architettura Claude Petarlin

The main aspect the attention of this project was focused upon, was the pursuit of  the characterization of the living area, which was rethought according to the “coating” of the existing central pillar. The identification of the new “appearance,” has made it possible to determine and distinguish two specific living areas and to create at the same time a new volume / container which services the TV area. New recessed light fixtures and “blades” of indirect light, consisting of hidden LED strips have been installed. New flooring made of knotty oak has also made it possible to level out the spaces which were previously fragmented by continuous visual discontinuities, determined by the different floor surfaces. All the service areas have been modernized thanks to the use of new materials and surfaces, such as the use of large slabs of porcelain stoneware and coloured enamels.

De Beers Ginza Building in Tokyo, Japan by Jun Mitsui & Associates Inc. Architects

 
December 27th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Jun Mitsui & Associates Inc. Architects 

Ginza is renowned around the world as a commercial hotspot in Tokyo. Marronnier street in Ginza is an especially bright street lined with great buildings each with their own individuality and architectural design. We felt that the De Beers Ginza Building should express the brightness and the glow of Ginza at the same time. For the design, what we imagined firstly was an image of gently curving streams of light. Like a light ribbon being held above the ground, or the aurora that changes its colour and shape continuously, we thought it should have a bright and graceful form with curved lines that look like a women’s beautiful silhouette. We decided to brighten the stainless steel to appear like a diamond glitter along the silhouette to give it a sensitive look. The building has been constructed with stainless steel being rolled out in a curved shape. Each stainless steel surface has a special finish, so the appearance reflects the light of the sky and the town sensitively and changes its appearance throughout the day with the movement of the sun. At the same time, the architectural expression shows infinite changes depending on the position it is seen from. Ginza has always been on the frontier of design, adopting changes over time to form the town. De Beers Ginza is a part of that tradition and our design is an expression of this ever changing town on the frontier of architectural design.

Tre.3 in Legnago, Italy by Studio Athesis

 
December 25th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Studio Athesis

The building is adjacent to the historic city center of Legnago. The project includes a modern re-interpretation of the sixteenth and seventeenth-century buildings situated in the historic centers of our cities. The new volume fits into the already-existing buildings with such proportions as to mediate between the impressive volumes present in the rear part of the parcel and the relatively-small houses overlooking the perimeter. The main façade overlooking Via G. Martino, is marked by full and empty spaces with three full parts separated by two pillared loggias; the building is volumetrically symmetric with respect to the central axis of the main body. The vertical division is also tripartite according to ancient traditions: rustication on the lower part, plaster in the middle with a window-framed cornice at the top (skyline). In the main body are some embedded, proportioned red balconies that become the adornment of the façade. The building slopes down in the rear, this forming terraces at different levels, providing ample, exposed spaces available to users.
