Eurogida Factory in Izmir, Turkey by Öney Architecture

 
August 26th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Öney Architecture

The project facility is inside an integrated canned pickle factory production and storage complex of 72 acres land located in Kemalpasa district of Izmir, Turkey. The north-south axis orientation and the east façade shaped as an arc follows the stream path, the other facades are linear due to the lot’s perimeter. The main axis where the supplies are dropped off separates this area from the rest. During the design process the main two determinants were the climate conditions and the different user’s programmatic needs. Therefore, the interior organization and the general form of the multi functional administrative facility program is governed by these two. The organization of the complex including the main entrance of the facility, the security building, the parking lot, the product drop off and the social facility is re-designed to interconnect the programs. The disturbance on the south facade from direct sunlight during long summer hours affecting the comfort is eliminated through the use of concrete as the building’s structural support which is designed as a curtain wall system. The system is continuous all around and shadows the façade windows. The west facade is designed with a secondary wall layer creating limited visual access to the factory. The building is consisted of four levels; first floor, conference hall and meeting rooms, second floor, general offices, third floor, administrative offices, fourth floor, guest welcome area and common spaces, and the intermediate space becoming an interior garden.The internal spaces are flexible; the diversely programmed rooms are separated with demountable partitions which allows for future growth and change in the program needs. All the program volumes link andopento the centralatrium. Atrium space reaches until the ground level is used by multiple groups becoming both a socializing and relaxing space. It is also visible from all floors and isolates the staff from the industrial area.The vertical circulation, including the stairs and the elevator at the end of the atrium, is designed to have maximum transparency. During the use of the elevators, they are visible from all levels.

My home and office in Florence, Italy by Silvia

Architect Silvia Allori renewed an apartment designed in the 70s by a Florentine architect, who thought of a space on a human scale in every single detail. The white laminate is predominant, and it has been used playfully on the walls of the living room to hide cabinets, a table, neon lights and plasters, which are never exposed.

GrasSea Ristopescheria is located in Fondi, a little city in Italy, near Rome and Naples.

The theme of the project was to embrace with a single architectural gesture the space able to contain the different types of activities that take place inside the building. Fish Market, Restaturant, functional space and external space were to appear as a single continuous space, accessible at the functional level and at the level of perception. The Design also had to be modern, bright and with references to the marine theme, of course, reinterpreted in a modern key. The ceilings with flowing lines and dynamic, the wooden flooring which then becomes the kitchen wall that recalls the jetties piers, the stainless steel doors and windows, the circular windows placed high up on the window, are all internal references to the marine theme. The rest of the lines, including the slots game on the kitchen wall that make it visible, the monobloc bench coated in resin, rimarcate with illumination with specially designed, make the functional environment, just like the modern and dynamic activities that takes place inside it. Particular attention was paid to the lighting sudio. Exist 3 different types of lighting according to requirements. Definitely the most distinctive and visible element is the bright ceiling track that combines all the space visually, and that cuts the wall up to get off the ground. The outdoor area covered attracts more of the classic tavern fishing style, with a ambient and lighting warmer and traditional. Like a path between two different ways of living and seeing the sea. YO.DAA has also worked on the creation of the logo, the creation of the website and the development of the brand, along with the implementation of the architectural design.

Torcuato House Pavilion in Buenos Aires, Argentina by Besonias Almeida arquitectos

The Commission

The commission arises from the principals need to have an enclosure where they can be isolated from the activity of the house, and then facilitate the development of functions more relaxed and much more connected with the landscape. It was to be an indeterminate space, since its use would also be indeterminate, but it should be comfortable in both winter and summer. This brief program was rounded off with the request of an outdoor bath and a small warehouse.

The place chosen for location by the principals is the farthest from the house, next to the existing evergreen trees sector on the lot.

Puni Distillery in Glurns, Italy by Werner Tscholl. Architekt

Article source: Werner Tscholl. Architekt 

The production of 176.000 liters of whisky by Italy’s first and only destillery of this beverage takes place in a building reflecting the company’s pioneer character through a rigorous organization and an expressive façade. Inside the double height of the production zone allows a view to the underground silos and the stills from the store situated at the entrance level. All the functions and the three stories of the building are wrapped within al lattice of cement blocks, colored with soft earth tones, forming a modular scheme as used in farm buildings of the area. So the complex on the outside appears as a simple cube nuanced only by the gaps of the lattice.
