CARMO ADVOGADOS HEADQUARTER in Cuiaba, Brazil by MMEB arquitetos

Article source: MMEB arquitetos

Because it is an expansion, an attachment, we chose a harmonious integration with the existing building, on a site of modest dimensions, with a program of needs that conditioned the use of its whole construction potential. Our concern was to integrate the two parts while providing our work with its own personality. In order to achieve this, we initially used a horizontal block to simulate continuity to the existing building, and a vertical bar to break this idea, creating a counterpoint to it. These two basic shapes are sculptured and modified to form the building and receive natural light. On the facade we chose to make a few openings due to strong sunshine in the afternoon, considering that Cuiabá, a city located in central Brazil with a humid tropical climate, presents summer temperatures that can reach 42º C. If on one hand we shut off the façade to protect the building, on the other hand we created courtyards, so that the building can receive natural light and ventilation, an efficient and unusual solution today in our city, a forgotten regional tradition that we sought to recover. Considering the small dimensions of the lot, we decided in favor of a steel structure and external panels of lightweight cement slabs with all walls containing thermal and acoustic insulation and plasterboard on internal walls and ceilings. The design included two courtyards that serve as a source of natural light and ventilation. By adopting the courtyards, we provided our customers with a new way of life, taking into account that they were previously working in rooms with no natural light or ventilation. And the headquarters of Carmo Lawyers embodies this concept of sustainability, on its four floors space designed by us decorated.

Office building for Dutch financial services group ACHMEA Leiden in The Netherlands by VVKH Architecten

 
April 20th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: VVKH Architecten 

Achmea’s office building marks the entrance to Leiden town centre. Five grand natural stone stairwells and a colourful façade shape the face directed towards this country’s busiest railway line. The road runs under the building on the town side. Here, the twelve tree columns shape a unique avenue leading towards Leiden city centre. The buildings’ use of colour refers to the painting ’rhythm of a Russian dance´ of the artist Theo van Doesburg. In 1917 he founded the Dutch famous artistic movement ’The Stijl’  in this town.

CLEVELAND MUSEUM OF ART in Ohio by Rafael Viñoly Architects

The Cleveland Museum of Art, one of the largest and most important art institutions in the United States, was built in 1916 by local architects Hubbell and Benes as a Greek revival pavilion, situated at the head of a pastoral park and lagoon landscape designed by the Olmsted Brothers. However, subsequent additions, including a noteworthy education wing by Marcel Breuer, obscured the rational plan of the original structure with a disjointed, confusing warren of spaces. In 2001, Rafael Viñoly Architects won the commission to resolve these conditions with an expansion and renovation, creating a coherent organization of galleries that accommodates projected growth and unifies disparate architectural vocabularies into a singular composition.

3 Stories in Budapest, Hungary by GASPARBONTA

‘I highly doubt, that this apartment can be turned into a decent home’ – said a close relative of the owner, seconds after we first saw this place. I hardly agreed. I loved it. Luckily, the owner – a great innovator, a friend and a fellow dino enthusiast – and I were on the same page about the outcome. This was one of the most complicated structures, I have ever seen, covered by numerous layers of human history and unwanted building materials. We had to take the long road and uncover this beauty and turn it to a contemporary home.

Loft Panzerhalle in Salzburg, Austria by smartvoll

2013, architects of smartvoll came out as winners at the internationally advertised contest for the loft in the Panzerhalle. Their design captivates through specific, spatial dramaturgy. On 350 square meters and two storeys, the classic idea of a “loft” is noticeable, yet is being reinterpreted in many regards. “I never play with the façade, I do not live there“, said Adolf Loos. As Loos has concerned himself with definitions of space, smartvoll does the same, more than 100 years later. A special focus lies on the exhaustion of materials and of what is technologically possible. Architecture unfolds on the inside. The room- and material-concept develops the encountered and retains the established. Smoothed and waxed concrete is one of the decisive materials for shaping the interior.
