Ruiwan Tower in Shenzhen, China by Aedas

Saturday, May 16th, 2020

Article source: Aedas

OCT Shenzhen recently announced the design of Ruiwan Tower, a new work of Aedas located in Qianhai Bay, Shenzhen. As a gateway project of Qianhai Bay, the Ruiwan Tower, accommodating a luxurious St. Regis Hotel, super-Grade-A offices and retail components, is becoming a new city icon of Shenzhen.

The owner envisioned a distinguishing landmark building in a highly competitive area of Shenzhen and a signature development for OCT Group. Standing in a densely developed area and closely adjacent to numerous high-rise towers with strong characteristics, the project is imposed with multiple challenges. The design must provide dynamic public space that respond to the urban fabric while complying with functional and brand requirements of the prestigious St. Regis Hotel.

A house in a residential area on the outskirts of Tokyo. Compared to the narrow front-side width, its depth goes further down. Two-thirds of its site is located approximately 3 meters above the street level. Therefore, the floor facing the street is, in fact, underground and one floor up is the ground and street-level. Including the penthouse, the residence has a total of 4 floors.

Division del Norte Building in Mexico by Iconico Studio

Saturday, May 16th, 2020

Article source: Iconico Studio

A building seeking for answers to the complex urban development process of Mexico City.

División del Norte is a project that exemplifies the apparently ever-growing demand for apartment buildings in Mexico City, where space is becoming extraordinarily scarce and valuable. Plots of land, which formerly seemed to be unfavorable for new construction because of their small size and unusual dimensions, have now found their destiny to accommodate new housing projects and thus complement the urban pattern of historic neighborhoods in central areas.

Lobster House in Lima, Peru by Martín Dulanto Arquitecto

Saturday, May 16th, 2020

The project is conceived as two blocks, where one rest upon the other. Both with different characteristics and treatments. The lower one is treated as (one big portico / a big space structured by one single portico) that contains the social spaces, all linked and well integrated, thanks to the use of sliding glass panels, to the exterior. While the upper one has, facing the outside, a series of archeries that reveals the partition of the spaces it contains, as well as the private condition of the same. Even so,  without losing the direct relationship with the outside world.
