Lemongrass in West Java, Indonesia by EINSTEIN & ASSOCIATES

Article source: EINSTEIN & ASSOCIATES 

Lemongrass is a casual dining restaurant in Bogor, West Java, Indonesia. Situated near important landmarks like the Presidential Bogor Palace and the famous Bogor Botanical Garden, one of the oldest and largest botanical garden in the world, Lemongrass’s design concept is derived from taking a closer look into Bogor. What many people don’t know about Bogor is that Bogor is only sixty kilometers away from Indonesia’s capital, Jakarta. Bogor or “Buitenzorg” as people would call it during the Dutch colonial era served as the summer residence of the Governor General of East Indies. “Buitenzorg” itself means “without a care” in dutch, mirroring the beauty of Bogor that makes people have no worries and feel safe and secure.

Levitt Goodman Residence in Toronto, Ontario by LGA Architectural Partners

328 Euclid Avenue is an urban infill site in downtown Toronto. Dean Goodman and Janna Levitt designed the house for their own use on a standard 20 foot wide downtown lot. Their intention was to build a small house of approximately 1,550 sq. ft., which would use a pragmatic approach to green building practices. It is two storeys high plus a basement, and utilizes all of this space to maintain a small footprint on the lot. The layout anticipates the changing needs of a family with teenagers and how the house may evolve over time as the children grow up and leave home. Modest in size, the main floor has an open floor plan of approximately 16’ x 55’ with large sliding doors at the front and back. This, coupled with a 12 foot ceiling height, contributes to the feeling of a generous interior larger than its actual size. Large windows allow for excellent natural light throughout the entire house and provide a sense of space, helping to moderate the long dark Toronto winter.

Carrasco International Airport, officially known as “Aeropuerto Internacional de Carrasco General Cesareo L. Berisso,” is located 11 miles (17.7 kilometers) east of downtown Montevideo, the capital city of Uruguay. With one million passengers per year, it is the only airport in the country that provides year-round international connections. As a result, it carries great symbolic value as the “front door” for many visitors to the country. With this distinction in mind, Puerta del Sur, the airport owner and operator, commissioned Rafael Viñoly Architects to expand and modernize the existing facilities with a spacious new passenger terminal to expand capacity and spur commercial growth and tourism in the region.

Weather conditions in the area, the topography and the existing vegetation, all acted as key elements in the creation of this eco-friendly project.

The land is located in a tropical area of lush vegetation on the outskirts of the city forming a descending grade from the upper street level to the rear garden which is adjacent to a golf course.

On the plot, there is a single tree (Guazuma ulmifolia, or more commonly known as West Indian elm or bay cedar) native to tropical America with highly visible dimensions and characteristics.
