In October 2010, Stephen Davy Peter Smith Architects was commissioned by Peter and Melanie Domb to design a house of modern design, with minimal impact on the environment and able to accommodate their burgeoning art collection.

The architects had worked with Peter Domb for many years in his capacity as a commercial developer. They met to look around the site at the bottom of the garden of the Dombs’ existing house, discussing their aspirations for the scheme and possible options.

Invisible Hotel/ Transparent City in Athens, Greece by blp architects

March 5th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: blp architects

Invisibility is essentially a question of transparency.

In 1963 Colin Rowe in his article Transparency: Literal and Phenomenal set the framework: \”At the beginning of any inquiry into transparency, a basic distinction must perhaps be established. Transparency may be an inherent quality of substance- as in a wire mesh or glass curtain wall, or it may be an inherent quality of organization\”. As an organization quality \”transparency means a simultaneous perception of different spatial locations\”.

Article source: NAMELESS Architecture

RW Concrete Church is located in Byeollae, a newly developed districtnear northeast Seoul, Korea. It evokes a feeling, not of a city already completed, but a building on a new landscape somewhere between nature and artificiality, or between creation and extinction. The church, which will be a part of the new urban fabric, is concretized through a flow of consecutive spaces based on simple shape, single physical properties and programs.

Pacific Navy in Venice, California by David Hertz FAJA & The Studio of Environmental Architecture

Article source: David Hertz FAJA & The Studio of Environmental Architecture

This private residential compound sits on 3 large lots at the intersection of Pacifc Ave. and Navy St. which is the first street into Venice from Santa Monica, as such this project serves as a gateway to Venice. Because the intersection is very noisy the concept was to use large tilt up concrete slabs to create an acoustical and visual wall to reinforce the edge condition between the street and the residence.

The main place in za bor architects’ portfolio is held by offices of IT-companies. It has a lot to do with a pretty informal and creative atmosphere that these firms are willing to build up for their employers, because working environment is one of the key factors that affect the company’s attraction. It is worth to note that Yandex – the largest IT-company in Russia, and one of the world’s leaders in this field, has been intrusting their offices to za bor architects for six years already. Today there are 21 Yandex office in 12 cities of four countries of the world, that za bor architects have developed.

Article source: Michael Jantzen

The North Slope Ski Hotel is a conceptual design proposal (in search of a client) for an eco-friendly ninety five room luxury hotel, which is powered primarily by the wind and by the sun. Eight large vertical axis wind turbines are mounted on the top of the hotel, and a very large array of flexible photovoltaic cells cover the lower south facing curved portion of the structure. These wind turbines and solar cells are used to supply most of the hotels electrical needs.
