Nightingale Decor in Los Angeles, California by Erika Winters Design

 
March 2nd, 2017 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Erika Winters Design 

The house was built at the foot of a hill and —to make the most of the lot—concrete piling was done to have the necessary structure to meet the program required by the clients. It is a two-storey house with a flat roof and elevator that also has an attractive hill where herbal and fruit gardening was developed. It’s like a boat on the sky by the way it stands out from the piles and integrates into its environment.

Article source: architetto Michele De Lucchi Srl 

UniCredit has erected a multipurpose building to house the bank’s general meetings, but also exhibitions and cultural events open to the Milan public. It occupies a privileged position against the background of Porta Nuova, beneath the mirror-glazed tower and in a dialogue with the Porta Nuova public gardens. UniCredit Pavilion has no foundations, being constructed on a reinforced concrete podium above the parking facility. Its soft profile is inspired by the shape of a seed, and its materials are natural. A vertically ribbed cage with lamellar larch beams contains a glazed space and supports a rounded, solar panelled roof. The structure opens on the outside through two large wings, equipped with monitors for events open to the general public. Situated on the ground floor is a multipurpose auditorium adaptable to diverse configurations and with seating for 700. An overhead walkway runs along the outer edge of the building and can be used for temporary art exhibitions. On the first floor is a nursery for 50 toddlers, whilst the top level is occupied by a lounge for customer reception and corporate events.

Campus Motor in Barcelona, Spain by Pere Puig Arquitecte

 
March 2nd, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Pere Puig Arquitecte 

The building is connected to a racetrack located in Barcelona, and is actively used as a training site for professional motor racing.  Several companies involved in the industry have set up permanent offices in this building.

A flexible design was needed for the building so that it could accommodate several companies of varying sizes.  For this reason, the building is divided between several 35 square meter subdivisions or sectors.  Each is independent from the other, and all mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) utilities were installed below each sector, allowing for an unobstructed view, optimal energy efficiency, and minimized energy consumption.
