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

 
October 24th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

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.

Wanderer’s Lodge in Santander, Spain by GARCIAGERMAN ARQUITECTOS

Article source: GARCIAGERMAN ARQUITECTOS

Wanderer’s Lodge is a small pavilion gently placed amongst existing trees in the garden of an extraordinary property in the north of Spain. In its daily use, it overlaps functions of protection, storage, entertaining, dining, barbecues, napping, acting as a small theater, etc. The particular climatic conditions to do with rain and humidity have suggested a lightweight materiality capable of reflecting the closeness of the trees and the existing main house, making itself present through the contrast of a polished and symmetrical piece against its natural backdrop. Designed for a young family of wanderers who travel the world, the pavilion celebrates the dialectic presence of fire and water as means to anchor experience to time and place. Construction elements are prefabricated and assembled on site by two local craftsmen.

MESSER Gas Filling Station in Budapest, Hungary by A4 Studio Ltd.

Article source: A4 Studio Ltd.

The building process of the Oxygen and Dissousgas Company (ODV) started in 1952 in Újpest, the brownfield belt of Budapest. Because of its proximity to the Danube river Újpest was the area of industrial developments already in the 1920’s and 30’s (tannery, thread factory, lamp factory). The valuable original brick buildings were completed through continuous development until 1963. The MESSER company – the leading manufacturer and distributor of special technical and medical gases in Europe – purchased the site in 1988. Our company, A4 Studio accepted the commission in 2008 for designing the new production hall, laboratory, depositories and offices on the 47 000 m2 site. Our first design approaches reckoned with a new building (see images) but after an accurate architectural and structural analysis we decided in agreement with the investor to utilize the original brick buildings with modern extensions.  Design process happened in 2010-11 (see images). The refurbishment was completed in the summer of 2012 with 21st century architectural means and materials (anthracite colored metal cladding, glass surfaces, exposed concrete), the design indicates old and new structures.
