Shenzhen Longhua Book City in China by Atelier Global Limited

Tuesday, May 26th, 2020

Article source: Atelier Global Limited

Shenzhen Longhua Book City is the sixth Book City Building in Shenzhen with ~46,000m2 building area.  It is set to become a new local cultural hub which is more than a place of reading, but also a place for innovative design workshops, leisure, entertainment, child education, and commercial.  From design initiation, we hope that the design would be able to provoke dialogues between different mediums: between nature and people, art and culture, space and sensation, et cetera.  By looking into the past, present and future of Book City culture, our design aims to rejuvenate the daily life of citizens and help them to rediscover the joy of reading by bringing them a brand new reading experience, through a smart architecture that can breathe (natural ventilation), grow (flexibility), and understand the needs of readers (interactive).

A former textile factory is transformed into tiny house. we keep the traces of  the several renovations in the past and we ad a new layer to the building. The characteristic existing concrete floor with visible steel structure is renovated and is the finishing floor of the living space. We kept the existing wooden roof structure with steel purlins visible. They are supporting a new industrial sarking roof. We isolated also all the walls and floors. The existing   windowopenings get new windows. A big window on the head of the building opens the living space with a nice view on the street. It brings a relation to the street without compromising the privacy.

Rural House #01 in Matanzas, Chile by CRISTOBAL VIAL ARQUITECTOS

Tuesday, May 26th, 2020


This work corresponds to a vacation home, the first construction within a condominium located a few minutes from the town of Matanzas, Navidad.

Given the conditions in which it is located, the first thing was to look for the distant views of the Pacific Ocean and the immediate territory, such as the existing vegetation, the ravines and, of course, a good orientation that allows the work to maintain sunlight throughout the year and good ventilation.
