Goetzis Fire Station A in Austria by Cukrowicz Nachbaur Architekten ZT GmbH

The competition project was developed for a different site between the large buildings of the garn market in the south and small scale single family houses in the north. After a change of the building site the project could be adapted. The new building of the fire station reacts to these surroundings with a calm and contained structure. The reduction to a few openings of the structure generates dynamic facades. The functional organization of the building is arranged in two main areas: administration- and training area as well as garage and workshop area. The two areas are connected via a foyer that is situated throughout the whole depth of the building. The foyer also connects the main entrance with the emergency entrance. All main functions are positioned clearly and well arranged on one floor, short hallways and direct connections guarantee the economical operation of the building as well as the optimal functioning in the case of a fire emergency. The structure will be built as a massive construction. The administration- and training area will be fitted with wooden interiors, the garage and workshop area will be built with a robust and durable combination of steel and concrete. The windows of the administration- and training area will be fitted with a layer of perforated metallic fins serving as sunscreen and homogenizing the appearance of the facades.

The logistic office and warehouse were set among the mountains of Ruifang, on the outskirts of New Taipei City. The reconfigured space introduces a new approach to logistic offices as opposed to the stereotypical warehouse workplace. The design embodies a casual, warm and playful environment that reflects the belief in each individual’s ability to show initiative.

DMMRC – Dubai Maritime Museum & Research Centre in United Arab Emirates by Studio Niko Kapa

Article source: v2com

Relating to both the sea and the city and in constant dialogue between them, the building is an extension of the city to the sea and vice-versa. Conceived as a continuation and a transition through the wide public space, the building dives into the ocean and merges with it. It develops as a triangular sharp form, which concentrates the public routes to the museum, through an inviting shape that draws visitors to the entrance and distributes them to the interior.

West Hollywood Belltower in California by Tom Wiscombe Architecture

 
November 16th, 2016 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Tom Wiscombe Architecture 

The history of the American billboard tracks with the larger cultural and technological history of media distribution and aesthetic sensibilities. In the early 20th century, the billboard began as a large sign or three-dimensional icon, often calling attention to immediate building functions or domestic products. With the explosion of car culture and the film industry at mid-century, the billboard was transformed into something non-local, something representing filmic worlds, in wide-screen formats. Sunset Boulevard has played a distinct role in the evolution of the billboard, particularly in the 60’s and 70’s, with edgy content, protruding elements, and promotional appearances by music stars. The two-dimensionality of the billboard began to move towards three-dimensionality, simultaneously existing as sign and object. Our proposal aims to build on this legacy in a contemporary way, with an iconic object-billboard programmed with an unprecedented breadth of commercial, cultural, and interactive media content.

Casa LOMA in Cundinamarca, Colombia by David Macias Arquitectura & Urbanismo

Can a home with endless view the landscape interweave both spaces that create privacy and features an open house?

Thus the challenge of the project encourages research about the different types of traditional architecture of the garden and recreation. For this, the architects used the analog conceptualization of Urdimbre as generating element of the project to develop a design that understand their environment in terms of implementation, physical morphology of the land and architectural program.

Sea Song in California by Form4 Architecture

 
November 16th, 2016 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Form4 Architecture

Sea Song is located in the immeasurable natural beauty of Big Sur on the California coast. Unobtrusive by design, it is both private from the main road and utterly transparent to what lies ahead. Likened to a trio of gliding Manta Rays, its environmental footprint is virtually null, being raised on a cantilevered podium causing minimum disturbance to the site.

Confraria Kero in Porto Alegre, Brazil by Kali Arquitetura

 
November 16th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Kali Arquitetura

It all started with a food truck that used to attend events around the city. The business, which was baptized of ‘Confraria Kero Food Truck’, has grown to the point that the partners decided to expand it. The idea was to offer the customers a permanent address and more physical space. The decision between keeping or not the words ‘food truck’ in the name of the business, turned out to be the main motivation and inspiration for the design concept of this project.
