Set near the Houhai Street of Shenzhen Bay, the Shenzhen Poly Grand Theatre, designed by Shenzhen Huazhu Engineering Design Co., Ltd., is a landmark building. The building’s sleek design evokes a piece of high-tech equipment, or perhaps a drop of water. Viewed from above, its silver contour gleams under the sunlight, reflecting its surroundings in the Luxalon® 20mm Quadro Cladding Panels and 2.5mm custom aluminum panels provided by Hunter Douglas.

Euromax Competition: Nest of Colors by GrupoHCR

 
May 20th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: GrupoHCR

The original concept rises out of the major basis about color, and is that this cannot be taught or described. People are born with a special sense of color. Based on this idea, our intention was to create a facade out of the color model used in all printing systems, CMYK (Cyan , Magenta , Yellow and Key) for their best adaptation in manufacturing facilities. Parting from this initial palette we achieved a fresh effect with an organized structure that at some point breaks with the inclination angles of these colored stripes, changing the lineal effect of the material used in other facades of the building, compensating the lack of color and also maintaining the same visual effect of the vertical lines of the current material.

The Brighton townhouses address the strong desire to live comfortably, maximising area on a more compact site.  Gone are the days of abundant grounds. Inner Melbourne markets require maximising the built area and creating smaller outdoor spaces that work efficiently, even in some of the more prosperous suburbs.  2 x large 3 storey townhouses including basement each now sit comfortably on the site where originally a single dilapidated house was located.

MONUMENTAL MODERNITY in WARSAW, POLAND by FAAB Architektura

 
May 20th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: FAAB Architektura

The design was determined by the pursuit of two main goals. One was the creation of a space which, thanks to the means of architectural expression, would bring out the gravity of the central government office as well as create an impression of the government’s openness and accessibility to citizens. The other was the durability of the project in terms of utilization and aesthetics, especially taking into account that the project was to be paid for with public funds.
