The latest revamp of the premier shopping and lifestyle destination delivers a centre unlike anything Australia has ever seen, introducing over 100 new retailers, two new dining precincts, a Hoyts digital cinema complex, the Southern Hemisphere’s first LEGOLAND Discovery Centre and a Tesla Motors dealership.

Stadthalle Hall F in Vienna, Austria by Dietrich | Untertrifaller Architekten

 
February 22nd, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Dietrich | Untertrifaller Architekten 

The new Hall F is an ingenious addition to the previously less developed southeast side of the monumental complex of Wiener Stadthalle, creating impact even on its own. The concert, show, dance, fashion and even circus venue sits 2,000 spectators. Furthermore, congresses and conventions can be facilitated. Even though it is a particularly appealing urban location, the new edifice does not steal the spotlight from Roland Rainer’s hall, which was built half a century prior.

Media Library [Third-Place] in Thionville, France by Dominique Coulon & associés

 
February 21st, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Dominique Coulon & associés

This project has the ambition of becoming a new model for media libraries. The programme calls the functions of a media library into question, lending it the content of a ‘third place’ – a place where members of the public become actors in their own condition, a place for creation as well as reception. In association with the basic programme, the building includes areas for displays, creation, music studios, and a café-restaurant. To give meaning to this new programme, it seemed necessary to question the way in which a place of this kind is produced. The various activities in the programme blend into each other, creating a dynamic arrangement. The spatial principle is based on a non-hierarchical superposition of different systems.

De Cecco Headquarters in Pescara, Italy by Studio FUKSAS

 
February 21st, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Studio FUKSAS 

The De Cecco Headquarters are an architectural landmark rising above an area of considerable town development. Two “edifices” linked by staircases and lifts, stand distinctly separate one on top of the other. The elevations of the cube-shaped lower part feature floor-to-ceiling glazing which hollows and lightens the sense of volume.

Opyco Restaurant in São Paulo, Brazil by YBYPY Architecture

 
February 21st, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: YBYPY Architecture

The project reflects the irreverence of the site – the little room, all decorated with wood blades and red color seeks to align the aesthetics and functionality. The house can change according to the day and need: small benches supports extend to the street, inside the restaurant area the tables can be individual or collective, there is a counter to eat in the kitchen. The space is fully adaptable to cooking classes, customized dinners, themed banquets, photo studio, private events or even a laboratory. Another idea is that no matter where the customer is he can see the kitchen in action. In this project every detail is important!

Tetra Office Building for the Research Institute Deltares in Delft, The Netherlands by Jeanne Dekkers Architectuur

 
February 21st, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Jeanne Dekkers Architectuur 

The Tetra building is the new face of the independent Research Institute Deltares. The institute, which focuses on innovative solutions to Delta problems, was housed on an outdated campus designed in the sixties. Jeanne Dekkers Architectuur tried to find a suiting expression to the changing emphasize of the research of Deltares. New insights into the essence of hydraulic engineering, with more emphasis on the “soft side”, the ecology and sustainability, asked for a different architectural language.
