SRK in Meguro, Tokyo by ARTechnic architects

 
September 22nd, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: ARTechnic architects

By expanding and adjusting the existing land condition and nature within, I have attempted to create a space which provides dwelling as like a part of the nature.

The shape has been finalized rationally and organically in the forming process of dealing with the site condition and requested function. Not only the result of the form being organic, by paying attention to the organic matter of the planning process, the process itself perhaps produced the organic space.

Naji Office in Gurgaon, India by ARCHITECTURE DISCIPLINE

 
September 22nd, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: ARCHITECTURE DISCIPLINE

Crafting a high-end, distinctive office space for a client engaged in manufacturing non-avionic components for the airline industry, The requirement was to create an engaging office for two principals, the team of 8-10 people, a clean room and a meeting room in an area of about 1100 sq.ft. The site occupies an unusually angular corner in an otherwise nondescript mixed use commercial development. There were no wet areas, the space was divided and there was minimal daylight from a dark curved glass towards one edge of the space. The glass did however, admit a lot of heat due to its southern aspect and there was no possibility of upgrading the glass for better insulation. The challenge lay in infusing positive and dynamic energy into a deeply compromised shell. The space had to convey image of an organisation and the program it had to perform.

House in Shfela, Israel by Dan and Hila Israelevitz Architects

 
September 20th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Dan and Hila Israelevitz Architects

Two level house, ground floor and basement. The building’s concept is an integration with the natural landscape in the area and in the plot, while creating a dramatic entrance façade that is still restrained and mysterious toward the street. Instead of highlighting the large and regular windows, and the doors, the idea was to hint at the building by creating two concrete beams with a line of trees between them.

bm Modular One in Washington, D.C. by Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

Article source: Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

A successful builder / developer with a history of constructing modular houses purchased a lot in a desirable neighborhood near Washington, D.C. with the intention of building a spec house.  When a potential buyer expressed interest in the lot, the developer proposed a modular house as a solution to a tight budget and time constraints.  However, the craftsman and colonial style modular houses typically built by the developer did not appeal to the potential client, who desired a light-filled, modern house.
