Already more than 200 years, Siófok is the Capital City of Lake Balaton, which is the largest lake in Middle-East Europe. We planned the “Sió Pláza” Shopping Centre into the middle of the renewable main square of the centre of the renewable downtown. The modern XXI. Century building is situated between the two historical symbols of the city, the Water Tower, was built in 1912, and the Pub, was built in 1895. Our aim was to plan a building that communicates with its environment, the historical city centre, continuously. We developed a transparent glass facade towards the main square of the city, with a cobweb-like metal screen.The shops were strung on 3 levels onto the inner shopping arcade of the shopping centre. The food and drug store received place on the minus first floor, the restaurant, branch and other services on the ground floor and the first floor. The entertainment (cinema, bowling, restaurants) is situated in the supreme floor. The building of the old Pub is integrated into the new building by the inner shopping arcade. The new functions are a bookshop and a cafe, with own garden. The remaining facades are planted with green plants.

Mother & Child welfare center in Paris, France by Rh+ architecture

 
October 26th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Rh+ architecture

The project is located in the south of Paris, in a small curved street, surrounded by historical and typical french buildings of the industrial period. The low density of the neighborhood, the street shape in addition to a 2.5m difference in height give the impression of a small provincial town. In fact, the curve of the Gustave Geoffroy street gives this execeptional site several constraints that have to be used to generate a well-integrated project to its urban fabric.

Quezon daycenter in Philippines by Yuusuke Karasawa Architects

Article source: Yuusuke Karasawa Architects

This facility is a day care center planned in the city of Quezon, located north-east of Manila, Philippines. The Philippine day care center, while its main function is a kindergarten/nursery, it also provides lodgings for the socially vulnerable and serves as a town community center. By having multiple functions, the day care center is more than just a nursery—it is a ”multi-purpose housing” made available for the city’s residents. It is a place where neighbors communicate with each other, a place of life and activities for the children and people without family. There, what is being contemplated is the proper way of a public “housing” that also provides communal functionalism.

Holiday Inn Express in Clarke Quay, Singapore by RSP Architects Planners & Engineers (Pte) Ltd

Article source: RSP Architects Planners & Engineers

The new Holiday Inn Express hotel projects a distinct, geometrical facade that is engaging, generating a new buzz in the vibrant Clarke Quay neighbourhood within the city centre. Completed in February 2014, within a site area of 11,555 m2, the design approach for this seven-storey hotel has been largely driven by the urban design requirements and technical conditions for the site. Its striking facade comprising of hotel room windows tilted and inclined at an angle, creates an identity of its own along Clemenceau Avenue.The design is firmly rooted in keeping the rooms shaded as much as possible from the direct and harsh afternoon sun as a large part of the Clemenceau Avenue elevation is west facing. The resultant facade is expressive, providing rooms across this elevation about 95% shade for more than half the year.

Unboxed – 100% recycable prefab wooden house in Polignano a Mare Town, Italy by Barberio Colella ARC

 
October 24th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Barberio Colella ARC

Description: “Unboxed”, designed by Micaela Colella and Maurizio Barberio, is the wooden transposition of the typical characters of the Mediterranean house, as a valid alternative to masonry or frame structure buildings. The house is think to be placed in the beautiful town of Polignano a Mare, Apulia. The high standardization of the modules and their total prefabrication, allow to study various solutions easily. This goal is achieved by splitting the building in several basic structural elements designed to be mounted with all the finishes and without thermal bridges. The house is 100% recyclable. It is also completely removable – thus movable – thanks to an innovative foundation made of steel, which allows to reduce or eliminate the excavation. A low inclination roof on the top (5%) allows the installation of solar roof tiles (Tegosolar technology), capable of producing electricity and heat. The house has a clear division between the living and the sleeping area with a glazed corridor/entrance in the middle: a journey in the nature, able to re-establish the contact with the surrounding environment (flow of time) at each passage.

Article source: OSPA | ARQUITETURA E URBANISMO 

This is the premise and guiding goal for the development of the new campus of UFCSPA. In an urban context still growing, Campus Igara emerges as a potential articulating element of both spatial and human relationships that surrounds it. A square, fluid and permeable as is supposed to be, in contrast to the volumetric density that the programmatic solution suggests in a first approach.

The Solar Gardens Visitors Center was created as a proposal for a large public art structure designed to harvest energy from the sun, and to collect and store rainwater for use in and around the structure. In addition, the structure and the surrounding plaza would be made from photo catalytic concrete that cleans itself, and the air.

Denim R & D in İstanbul, Turkey by Zemberek Design Office

Article source: Zemberek Design Office

The space is designed as an R & D studio within headquarter of a textile company. The design concept was built on the physical relations among the users (R & D personnel), products, accessories, and the materials.

It was observed that actions of sitting, walking, working, evaluating the products by comparisons, performed in ordinary levels and locations, are limiting the function of  R & D.

The Future of Prefabricated Wooden Homes by marc benjamin drewes ARCHITEKTUREN

 
October 24th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: marc benjamin drewes ARCHITEKTUREN

In our opinion the future of prefabricated wooden houses is a simple but well reasoned solid construction without any glue or synthetic elements. This leads not only to real sustainability, but creates a pleasant indoor climate and a friendly atmosphere.
The lightness of wood and the possibilities of prefabricating large-size elements qualifies wooden houses to densify an urban landscape. A city as Berlin has a huge amount of flat roofs that can carry light wooden constructions. People can live in individual houses with spectacular views in the middle of the city.
