Stone House in Jodhpur, India by Design Atelier

 
March 10th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Design Atelier

In Jodhpur, we fondly use stone in design, together with structural concrete and wood. To us, traditional building materials play an important role in architecture, because in the hot 45-degree sun, buildings need to take into account the local weather as also a tool to achieve a connection with the historical ambience. Over the years, the use of local stone has created an omnipresent relationship between the stone urbanscape and architecture. We have added to that mix a contemporary sensibility, and a climate cooling effect of water garden and plants seen through Floor-to-ceiling windows with screens are designed to maximise view over the water gardens, and soft surfaces that do not reflect abundant natural light. The extent of the detailed use of stone screens and expensive detailing is limited by financial possibilities.

Hisham A. Alsager Cardiac Center in Kuwait by AGi architects

 
March 10th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: AGi architects

Medical buildings are usually perceived as spaces with negative connotations, specifically when referring to rehabilitation centers where patients stay for long periods of time. Therefore, in the design process of the Hisham A. Alsager Cardiac Center, our aim was to change this perception and to build a positive space, one that is able to act as a hub for social activity, rather than just a medical center.

Maison Stephane Hessel in Lille, France by JDS/JULIEN DE SMEDT ARCHITECTS

 
March 10th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: JDS/JULIEN DE SMEDT ARCHITECTS

The competition for a new mixed-use building in Lille piqued our interest both in its unprecedented mixture of program and its prominent triangular site in the heart of the new district of Porte de Valenciennes. The brief outlined a 70-cradle nursery, a 200-bed youth hostel, and an office dedicated to social and economic innovations all collected under one unified roof; a tall order even by multifunctional building standards. Rather than simply dividing horizontally by level or vertically by mass, our solution combines efficient organization with a programmatic strategy that converts the geometric constrictions of the site into social amenities, and resolves the seemingly contradictory functions in an intertwined social spiral.
