The project is located at the entrance of the hospital compound of the city of Woldya, in the north east of Ethiopia.

A key decision of the project was to divide it in two areas that share the same entrance space: the functional maternity unit and the mothers’ waiting area, a new program born as a result of the sociological analysis of the site. This is a space where future mothers coming from rural areas can live in an environment where they can feel comfortable two weeks before they give birth.

In 2009 BOLLES+WILSON won the 1st prize for housing and a kindergarten on the site of the 1960ies St Sebastian Church. It was expected that the emblematic oval form of the church be demolished. Instead the kindergarten colonized the nave. It was opened in 2013 – a much published reuse with interior green weather protected play decks.

Unit cafe in Kiev, Ukraine by TSEH Architectural Group

Article source: TSEH Architectural Group 

The cafe ‘Unit’ became one of the objects of the revitalization project of the part of the plant in Kiev and our team was working on it. This cafe is for students who study at IT-school ‘Unit Factory’. In the beginning we did not plan to build it. But while working on the IT-school project, we understood that there was not so much space  for a big canteen or a cafeteria in the reconstructed building. Then we decided to offer the investor to locate the cafe apart. We told about the opportunity to use sea containers and after sketches we got the approval for preparing detailed documents. The cafe became a peculiar business card, a bright spot. Residents, students and other people eat, have meetings, discuss business and get acquainted informally on the territory of Unit City –  the name that was given to the territory of the revitalization. Fourteen sea containers were used in the implementation of the Unit Cafe project. One of them is vertical and there is a staircase in it. On the first floor there is an open terrace that is located in the console way above the ground floor. The console of the first floor is 7,5 metres. It has a great  school and business centers views. There is water from the one side and it leads to the bridge entrance. Exterior and interior have something in common. A bright green container (the first floor) is partly painted in this colour, too. There are comfortable sofas, tables with chairs and plants on the ground and on the first floors . There is a kitchen, a lavatory and pantries on the ground floor.  The total area of the cafe is 275 m2.

ANTALYA-THE PLACE

The stretch of land along Turkey’s Mediterranean coast that forms the modern city of Antalya has a long history of being a multicultural seaport. Though not formally organized as a true city until around 150 BC, the area was occupied and under the authority of great societies like the Hittites and Persians for nearly 2,000 years beforehand. As Alexander the Great moved east against the Persians and towards India, his armies took all of Anatolia, beginning the heavy and long standing Greek influence in Antalya. After Alexander’s death, his empire was notoriously divided amongst his four generals, leading to the establishment of the Kingdom of Pergamon in Asia Minor. One of the rulers from Pergamon’s Attalid Dynasty, King Attalus II, saw promise in the area and formally settled the city–hence it being named Attaleia in his honor–and making it the main base for his navy. Soon, the city was absorbed into the Roman Republic as part of their governed region Pamphylia.

“Nothing is invented; there is a past to everything.”

The expansion project of the Egrey store in São Paulo happened intuitively, thinking first of the contact of the architectural object with its immediate urban context.The main point of contact between the interior of the store and the outside environment is its sidewalk which has been transformed into a large continuous plane.The connection between the two existing volumes that compose the store is given by the white metallic paneling as a more aseptic background that values ​​the large transparent and translucent openings.

After carrying out some market research on the middle classes’ housing needs in the Northern Greater Buenos Aires area, our client, a medium sized building company, learnt how scarce commercial offer of high constructive and architectural quality houses is as opposed to how greater the demand for it. In view of these results, they decided to have a replicable housing prototype designed for them by our Studio: 2HL House.

Public Bar in Moscow, Russia by NOWADAYS office

In recent years Moscow has developed a taste for the so-called speakeasy bars: “secret” drinking venues where you need to be acquainted with the owner or, at least, a regular to get in. The entrance to one of these is hidden within the inner courtyard of a XVIII century building in an historical neighbourhood situated centrally. The rules of the speakeasy genre require the absence of a sign, so only those who know where to go would find the way. Eight steps down a ladder, that also serves as a storage for cocktail ingredients, and a visitor finds himself in a two-room clandestine underground venue, ironically called the Public Bar.
