Ilot Queyries in Bordeaux, France by MVRDV

Friday, July 7th, 2017

Article source: MVRDV 

Designed to fully exploit this exceptional location, Ilot Queyries’ facades adapt to their opposite views towards the River Garonne and the historic city. The plan aims to reflect the qualities of Bordeaux World Heritage Site city centre whilst adding new qualities. Emblematic of the masterplan are facades with 45° angles which are used as a tool to generate maximum ventilation, daylight and sun. These angles have also opened the possibilities to create innovative housing. The larger building at the riverfront will have a distinct gold-splashed façade, whilst different shades of ceramic tiles, give a textured effect from top to bottom. The glass-fronted rooftop restaurant offers panoramic views of the historic city and river. At the heart of this collective dwellings is its large public courtyard with a garden of alder, birch and high grasses.

Seaside Periscope in Gdynia, Poland by Adam Wiercinski Architekt

Friday, July 7th, 2017

Article source: Adam Wiercinski Architekt 

The idea for a public toilet in Gdynia is closely related to the location of the given area. View of the open sea and extending walking paths, suggested concept of creating building that besides its primary function will be set in a seaside tourist character. Periscope building allows its users to observe sea from the interior not through the traditional window. By placing the upper mirror of this periscope mechanism at a height of 4m, view of the water is raised above the boulevard’s level and so the strolling people. Users of the public toilet can see an undisturbed yet always different image of the Baltic Sea. Monolithic, concrete building owes its shape to the hidden periscope structure, but due to the rounded arcade and used raw materials, building with its profile resembles the nearby breakwater, blending with the local landscape. In the gap between the women’s and men’s toilet, there is a tribune from which people can enjoy view of the Baltic Sea. Its form, in contrast to the traditional benches, can hold a larger group of people. Wooden finish of the tribune and its surrounding walls warms raw style of the building. Inside the toilet, as well as outside the building, walls are covered with concrete. Free space under periscope construction is filled with huge pebbles, reminding the breakwater. Simple interior exposes periscope’s mirror with Baltic Sea view. Direct access to the building allows independent use of all the toilet rooms. Whole object in its form and function blends with the coastal mood, creating entirely new point on the promenade path.

Voice in Tochigi, Japan by studioLOOP

Friday, July 7th, 2017

Article source: studioLOOP

This is a project for husband, wife, and 2 children. Voice is a house located in Tochigi, Japan. The site is located on the north side of the subdivision site, and the east, west, and south side are surrounded by the neighbor’s house. We focused on reconsideration of openness and privacy, so first of all the floors of each floor were open windows on the south side. On the first floor, the inner veranda and the external deck were made continuous so that the line of sight faces the garden where the lawn spreads. The deep roof and sleeve walls protect wooden sash while blocking the strong sunlight of the summer and the gaze from the neighbor. On the second floor where the bedroom lined up, a wall was set up on the terrace to save the privacy from the outside, the east west and the upper part were opened, and the light was reflected on the white wall to secure the illuminance. Because the interior spaces are connected through openings and void, so spaces are filled with the voices of families.

Climbing house in Goiânia, Brazil by LEO ROMANO

Friday, July 7th, 2017

Article source: LEO ROMANO 

The architectural party of the House of the Climbing was defined in order to value the conditions offered by the place. Observed the physical and topographic conditions, as well as the solar orientation and the winds, the volume was defined from the choice of the concrete as main constructive element. However, poetics is in the way this material has taken shape. In the main volume, the social and leisure area is defined by a light coverage. The prestressed concrete happens like a smooth curved line, almost like a leaf hovering in the air. In contrast, the social area is present by a solid rectangular volume, which at the same time is \”heavy\”, \”floats\” on two sculptural pillars. Under this volume, garden, garage and a climbing wall coexist harmoniously.

Casa CSF in Mexico City by López Duplan Arquitectos

Friday, July 7th, 2017

Article source: López Duplan Arquitectos

The lot shape is a basic rectangle and we adjusted the project to its size to get the most benefit from the space. On the facade 2 planes are clearly appreciated as part of the same volume. We decided to use stone as the main material to add strength and enhance the personality of the project. The second plane was softened with vegetation to mark the difference between both and define a gesture of the presence of nature throughout the design.

Friday, July 7th, 2017

Article source: LYCS Architecture  

Shanghai Baoye Center is part of the phase-2 urban development scheme for the new Central Business District in Hongqiao, a rapidly developing piece of western Shanghai. The location of the project puts it at the center of car, train, and jet transportation, and is in fact the last building one sees before entering the busy Hongqiao High-Speed Rail Terminal from the south by bullet train, granting the project a significant urban presence.The site has several challenging conditions: sandwiched by two city-designated temporary green spaces into an L shape, with a 60% frontage ratio requirement to the east, west and south, and a 24m tall highway overpass running adjacent to its north face, the building must respond to a maximum FAR of 1.60 and a height of 24m.
