Microsoft Technology Pavilion in Sochi, Russia by Nowadays

 
January 28th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Nowadays

The Microsoft Technology Pavilion was designed by architectural firm Nowadays for the 2014 Winter Olympic games, held in Sochi. Standard rectangular plots 25×30 meters were given to sponsors of the Games in the Olympic park. One of the main requirements of the Olympic Committee was to locate a single volume on the site. But the clients wanted to create a public space where visitors could meet between competitions. So architects decided to rethink the proposed layout of a single building in the center of the site and distributed all the functions around the perimeter. It gave the opportunity to create a multilevel courtyard, saturated with various activities.

This project is an extension of the existing factory, reclaiming ground adjacent to the jungle in Johor, Malaysia. The factories in the 19th century gave priority to rationality and productivity, so we wanted to transcend the factory typology by incorporating elements that would make the Islamic workers proud of the new working environment they would be facing.

Article source: m architecture

The entire project was conceived in an economical way to preserve materials and to optimize the ratio between the area and the construction cost ($3,280 per square foot), but not at the expense of quality. Indeed, the owner and architect did not discount architectural quality, spatial functionality, etc. Thus, for example, the choice to develop a light, wood construction for the whole house allows for:

‘Ai Cadelach’ Hotel in Treviso, Italy by STUDIO DI ARCHITETTURA DANIELE MENICHINI

 
January 28th, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: STUDIO DI ARCHITETTURA DANIELE MENICHINI 

The concept for the hotel was inspired by its location – two lakes and a green valley surrounded by the steep, forested slopes of Belluno’s Alpine foothills, where the dominating element is the woodlands. This was the key factor on which Daniele Menichini’s architect’s studio based their project and Toscana Interiors carried it out. The woods were abstracted and reconstructed inside the bedrooms to create a link with the outside, featuring sycamore, linden, willow, birch, poplar, elm, beech and sweet chestnut trees. Trees outside and trees indoors, creating a comfortable and welcoming environment, a warm and physical place to spend the night, dreaming of sleeping outdoors under a starry sky.
