Spring in wanchai, hong kong by Joey Ho Design

 
September 12th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Joey Ho Design

Spring is a newly established learning center for children that eschews the fairytale cliche of its genre: space filled rainbow colours, cartoon characters, toys and stuff, which is often the result of superimposing an adult’s perspective onto the space. For this project, the designer tried to look at the picture from a child’s viewpoint, and concentrate on the learning experience as a whole. The aim is to formulate a space that caters to children’s both physical and psychological needs, and ultimately help them achieve their development and learning potential.

Part to Whole in Korea by HG-A | LIVE COMPONENTS

 
September 12th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: HG-A | LIVE COMPONENTS

Everything in nature is made up of components. It starts from basic components like atoms and molecules, and grows to bigger components like tissues and organs in order to construct a ‘live’ body. The artificial environment is quite the same. It all starts with basic components like points and lines, and grows to surface and finally construct a space.

Loft ESN in Esslingen, Germany by Ippolito Fleitz Group

 
September 12th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Ippolito Fleitz Group 

The Palmscher Park in Esslingen is a former army barracks from the late Wilhelmine era. It was transformed into a residential complex at the turn of the millennium and has become a very popular residential area thanks to its attractive hillside situation, only ten minutes walking distance from Esslingen town centre. When an agency moved out of a loft space at the short end of a two-storey block, a family with two small children sought to transform the site into their new home.An open and spacious living space with differentiated living zones and tantalising visual perspectives was created across 400 square metres.

Ölhafen Bridge in Raunheim, Germany by schneider+schumacher

 
September 11th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: schneider+schumacher

The new white oil terminal bridge is an elegant, curved structure. It spans the 70m wide entrance to the oil terminal harbour in Raunheim with a spiralling access ramp. This sculptural bridge design stems from Frankfurt architects schneider+schumacher.

The clients for the bridge appointed Schüßler-Plan as structural engineers. The bridge’s location is, on the one hand, influenced by the industrial character of the harbour, and on the other, by the River Main that runs parallel to it, with its attractive embankment and mature trees. The bridge will primarily be used by cyclists and pedestrians.

RIBA awards jury comment; “To convert a derelict 15th century barn into a contemporary home would be an achievement anywhere, to do so in one of the most rigorously conservative planning environments there is, is all the more remarkable.”

A 32,5 meters high concrete tower for fire training.

A vertical decision. The tower at its plant intensifies the vertical folds. The folds of the concrete improve the vertical inertia, save material, make a more efficient structure. The tower is compressed also to not fill the air, as the “thin figures” of Giacometti.
