This private residence is anchored into the coast, in an attempt to harness tidal power as a way of sustaining the shelter. The tidal house has two shells, the outer cast in concrete anchors the house to the beach whilst the interior shell contained within rises with the tide as it enters the outer shell.

Residential building DMT in St. Florian, Upper Austria by [tp3] architekten

 
September 2nd, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: [tp3] architekten

The new residential house has been built on the basement of the old one and is now accessible through a generous staircase.
The basic idea for this single-story residence follows the analogy of an old Roman atrium, however, in this case the courtyard opens up towards the terrace and expands to the garden. Through this opening arise not only different view relationships but also various zones from private to semi-public.

Bolidt headquarters transformed into international, dynamic working environment in Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht, Netherlands by Bolidt

Article source: Bolidt

After fifty years of business, during which time Bolidt’s focus has shifted from the domestic market to a more international orientation, the demands on its headquarters in Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht have outgrown the traditional office concept. Flexibility, interaction, 24-hour availability and effective, targeted communication are more important than fixed workspaces. Last year, RoosRos Architects, the firm that was responsible for the original design of the headquarter building back in 1994, produced the design for an extensive conversion of the building into a contemporary, dynamic office environment. The transformation of Bolidt’s headquarters has resulted in a stylish, creative home base where employees and business relations from around the world can meet and be inspired.

General Parameters 

Oriented from north to south, Integral Iluminación Commercial Building, developed in two diamond-shaped plots with a total building area of 12,701 square feet. One of the requirements of the project was to keep the exterior structure of the existing house (columns, walls and pitched roof) in one of the plots while a new structure proposed for the expansion of the building on the second plot. Considering that Integral Iluminacion sells top of the line lighting and automatization systems, it was extremely important to conceive a cutting edge architectural design that would become an icon for the company.

Middle Ground by SUSTAINABLE.TO

As the world’s population migrates to urban centers, we have no choice but to combine and layer multiple, differing uses. Typically, residential and office zones are built in isolation, creating segregated neighbourhoods. This creates a scenario where buildings remain empty for large time spans, and amenities are doubled, one created for each zone.
