Shell House in Almaty, Kazakhstan by Lenz Architects

 
October 22nd, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Lenz Architects

Damir Ussenov and his architectural firm Lenz Architects designed a villa in the foothills of Almaty. The main aim of the architect was to create a separate, isolated and safe space, while making it possible to enjoy the wildlife. The unique metal framework allows natural light to enter the interior, bypassing the dense thickets and difficult terrain. The facade consists of dynamic aluminum panels which using an electronic mechanism can close windows and isolate the house from the environment, providing security and soundproofing. Panels are treated with white plaster EIFS (Exterior Insulation and Finishing Systems) which have thermal insulation properties and sanitizers. The house, which resembles a shell, includes a large studio with a kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and a relaxation room. A spiral staircase leads to an open and comfortable guest bedroom.

Kossmann.dejong designs the new Canon of Dutch History exhibition in the Holland Open Air Museum, Arnhem

The Canon of Dutch History, the list of 50 topics that summarises Dutch history, comes to life as a new permanent exhibition in the Holland Open Air Museum in Arnhem. Housed in the refurbished entrance pavilion designed by Mecanoo, Kossmann.dejong’s design is imagined as a multimedia film set. The theatrical combination of physical, interactive and audio-visual media with unique collection presentations results in an engaging and fascinating visual narrative. The carefully reconstructed spatial collage of historic icons is interwoven with stories from everyday people, giving visitors an in-depth experience of the past from today’s perspective.

The Exchange in Columbus, Ohio by Oyler Wu Collaborative

 
October 20th, 2017 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Oyler Wu Collaborative

The Exchange sits within the plaza adjacent to the Irwin Conference Center by Eero Saarinen (formerly the Irwin Union Bank) and makes use of the three existing canopies that formerly served the drive-through bank tellers. The design challenge was to “activate” the space while relating a contemporary design concept to the historic building and existing site conditions. Oyler Wu’s research into Eero Saarinen’s oeuvre, along with analysis of the site, led to a focus on three keys concepts: the unification of the existing canopies into a rectangular volume, solid/void relationships that include a \”loose fit\” placement of solid elements within carved voids throughout the scheme, and the use of contrasting tectonic strategies of solid and frame. The intention of this strategy is to produce the sense that the pavilion is simultaneously brand new and that it has always been there.

BGB GROUP in New York by TPG Architecture

BGB is an unusual communications agency in that it’s not part of an international conglomerate, it’s privately owned, which means that BGB has a specific – and colorful – personality. TPG Architecture worked closely with Gregory Passaretti and Brendon Phalen, Managing Partners, to bring its new space to life with bright colors, themed conference rooms and other amenities that their youthful workforce would surely appreciate; BGB was founded in 2005 by Passaretti, Phalen and a third partner and it is tightly focused: the firm only works with pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device clients. BGB currently has about 215 employees in the new, two floor 47,000 square foot space.

AZ SINT-LUCAS CAR PARK in Ghent, Belgium by ABSCIS ARCHITECTEN

Article source: ABSCIS ARCHITECTEN 

From Ghent’s ring road the first sight of the hospital AZ Sint-Lucas one gets is the multi-storey car park. For this reason the design devotes a lot of attention to the atmosphere and appearance of the site. The project zone is split into two parts, with the high capacity car park distributed over two buildings. This creation of two smaller buildings is effective within the spatial context and the granular size of the hospital campus, and creates a visual axis leading to the hospital.

“Complexe Sportif Saint-Laurent” in Montréal, Canada by Saucier + Perrotte Architectes/HCMA

Article source: v2com

The project site is situated between the existing Émile Legault School and Raymond Bourque Arena, both of which are horizontal in form and neutral in character. For this project, it thus became vital for the design of new sports complex to create a visual and physical link between the Marcel Laurin Park (to the north of the site), and the projected green band that will run along Thimens Boulevard.
