Jaramteo Kindergarten in Seoul, Korea by KHY architects

Article source: KHY architects

JARAMTEO KINDERGARTEN, a district kindergarten of Gwangjin-Gu is sited at a typical residential area where multi-household houses cluster in Junggok-dong. Due to narrowness of the site, facing little to the road and closely surrounded by buildings, JARAMTEO KINDERGARTEN was designed to stand out symbolically as a kindergarten, while blending in with the neighborhood. Restrictions such as, confined site area, accommodation requirement and barrier-free certification derived plans and sections. So the focus of design was on shapes of openings that determine the image of an elevation.

Mercedes-Benz Thailand Headquarters in Bangkok by PBM – Progressive Building Management Co., Ltd.

The new headquarters office of Mercedes-Benz Thailand is designed by inspiration from one of their founders, Mr. Gottlieb Daimler. He sent a postcard to his wife (with a three-pointed star marking the location of his house) writing that this star would one day shine over his own factory to symbolize prosperity. We captured the concept of stars to create the movement and the connection in the new working space. Function rooms such as meeting rooms, coffee corners, utility rooms, were planned across the entire floors which increase chances for staff to meet each others and make them easier to collaborate throughout the day. The connection stair between its 2-storey offices was also designed as a grandstand for the town hall where a hundred of staff can gather around for the company’s events. Above this space, we placed the symbolic with imported shining crystal chandelier to enhance our concept of the star and bring fabulous lighting to the property. Along the corridor, we intentionally place lighting in different size and difference direction to mimic the star in the sky.

Parking Garage Cliniques Universitaires Saint-Luc in Belgium by MODULO architects

Article source: MODULO architects

MODULO architects (BE) and de Jong Gortemaker Algra Architects (NL), together with engineering firm ELLYPS (BE), designed a staff parking garage with a capacity of 985 cars for Cliniques Universitaires Saint-Luc in Brussels. This resulted in a fluent structure integrated with the site.

Parking garages are often labeled as mere functional industrial buildings rather than being referred to as inspiring architecture. Yet the parking garage is often the first place of contact with, in this case, the hospital and should therefore serve as a warm welcome for the visitors. This parking project at Saint-Luc is made into a positive first encounter, by selecting natural materials, providing abundant daylight and emphasizing contextual connection.

The chocolate bar is situated in a pleasant part at Prague 6 Vokovice with good access to the subway station ,,A’’ Bořislavka and directly on the opposite side of the elementary school at ,,Na Dlouhém lánu” street. The exact address is ,,K lánu 496/2’’. Basically, this is not a standard cafe bar, but chocolate bar. Of course, you will find all the necessary services, that you are used to have in the cafe (delicious coffee,  perfect breakfast and  wine too). Everything is prepared directly in the preparation room at the bar. There was a  minimarket in the area before, so it was a rather demanding reconstruction. A space had to to be re-appraised. The total space is 83.7m2, the main room itself has 66.7m2. In the background there are preparation room, staff base, men’s, ladies’ and handicap’s toilets.

The building is part of the extremely dynamic renewal that is underway in the Clichy-Batignolles district, an area characterized in part by the convergence of railways leading to the Saint Lazare train station.

In this neighborhood, now well served by new public transportation, the predominance of mixed use programs and services (new courthouse, schools, cinemas, offices and apartment buildings) ensure this building on lot 7 will be surrounded by a quality environment.
