Bellevue Botanical Garden Visitor and Education Center in Washington by OLSON KUNDIG

Monday, July 2nd, 2018

Article source: OLSON KUNDIG 

Since opening in 1992, the 53-acre Bellevue Botanical Garden has become one of the most popular public gardens in the Pacific Northwest. A growing interest in native plantings and gardening, as well as expanded programs, has drawn large crowds to the botanical gardens in recent years. The design of the new visitor center answers these needs while blurring the boundaries between architecture and the gardens. Balancing civic function with residential scale and attention to detail, the design creates intimate, inspirational spaces that allow for exploration and quiet reflection.

One Blackfriars in London, England by WSP

Sunday, July 1st, 2018

Article source: WSP

One Blackfriars, London is a mixed-use complex located near the southern bank of the Thames River that includes a 170-meter residential tower, low-rise hotel, and a three-story basement with a pool, spa, cinema, and other amenities. WSP worked with their client St. George to build and design the project, including the unique geometry of the residential tower. To develop the structural framing that would maximize apartment layouts, every floor and apartment had to be a different size and shape. Not only did WSP need a structural solution for the varied floor plans, but it also needed to design support columns that offered unobstructed views without intruding on the apartment spaces.

Landmark with a view

Studioninedots completes residential complex on Zeeburger Island Amsterdam

On the northern tip of the rapidly developing Zeeburger Island in Amsterdam Studioninedots, commissioned by de Alliantie and Lingotto, designed two striking volumes.

Urban Dock in Bordeaux, France by Hamonic + Masson & Associés

Monday, May 28th, 2018

Article source: Hamonic + Masson & Associés

The Bassins à flots are a 162 ha niche site, a high-quality port and manufacturing district for which Bordeaux City Council has development plans. Nicolas Michelin’s instructions are to create a link between the site and the horizon and to build on the metaphor of the factory, warehouses and the navy.

Our project is very industrial in that it is solid, compact and metal-clad. There is the occasional raised element, one 9-storey building jutting up like a periscope. That is what the project is all about: putting together a serene skyline and creating an urban form similar to a village at ground level, with footpaths to maintain a feeling of wilderness.

Monday, May 28th, 2018

Article source: Dietrich | Untertrifaller Architects ZT GmbH

The Omicron Company, a world leader in the electric energy sector, wanted to enlarge its headquarters in Klaus in Vorarlberg. The ambition was to implement an innovative workplace design. The structural engineering of the new building was designed with 200 workstations, set along the existing building frame.

The framework was made with reinforced concrete and the facade composed of prefabricated wooden modules. Six internal courts, opening onto a central passage on either side, bring transparency and natural light into the centre of the building. The offices all give onto a corridor or a terrace.Sculpture spaces punctuate the circulation, offering several meeting or relaxation spots.
