La 100 in Bogota, Colombia by CAZA

 
May 11th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: CAZA

CAZA’s inaugural project in Colombia, La 100 is comprised of a cluster of high-end offices, hotels, and residential buildings in one of the city’s most densely populated areas. Each building is a unique color, playing off the long-held tradition of building with vibrantly pigmented bricks in Colombia. The backside of each building has a series of terraces that look out towards the Cerros mountain range. Throughout this expansive complex of mixed-use towers are a series of parks and public areas that unify the people and activities that occupy this fast-changing Bogota neighborhood.

Showroom And Offices For Furniture Company in Brno-Vinohrady, Czech Republic by Chybik+Kristof Architects & Urban Designers

The transformation of a former car show room on the outskirts of a housing estate into a site of the MY DVA group, focusing on the production of office, school and metal furniture, represents another finished structure of the young architecture firm CHYBIK + KRISTOF Architects & Urban Designers from Brno. The single-storey building of a poor aesthetic quality turned into a building with a new, easily remembered façade composed of more than 900 black plastic seats. The façade is conceived abstractly, functioning also as a banner advert for the firm itself. After finishing a simple refurbishment of its interior, a new flexible showroom was created presenting the individual segments of the firm´s production in specific, thematically arranged settings.

MiNO – Migliarino hostel in Ferrara, Italy by Antonio Ravalli Architetti

Article source: Antonio Ravalli Architetti

As a part of a program for the conversion of an old hemp factory into a new city center for the town of Migliarino, the project gains a youth hostel out of a 510 m2 portion of the building. The site position is barycentric to the touristic circuits which take place during the summer, thanks to the proximity of the Po River Delta Natural Park, but the project has to count on a reduced regional funding, 270.000 € including the furniture, and a doubtful management profitability. Thus the management aspects, both with the energetic and economic saving, are the principal matters. The hostel is imagined as a ‘passive machine’, in which natural air fluxes are conveyed in order to obtain climatic benefits, while the systems distribution and the morphological disposition of the rooms, conceived as to minimize the utilized elements and technologies, allow an elastic hosting capacity: the highest during the spring and the summer, or in case of special events, reduced to the essential during the low seasons.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The Arena Apartments development in South Brisbane is unlike anything else in Brisbane.

Shop and Exhibition Space in Marseille, France by Atelier M3a Architectes

Time had taken its toll on the place. We proceeded like archeologists and we removed layer after layer until we found the spirit of the original building, a brick tiled floor and stone and brick walls that must have been more than 150 years old.

These old materials serve as a reminder of what the place used to be. We wanted to preserve them as soon as we discovered them.
