Layering Courtyard in Beijing, China by ARCHSTUDIO

Thursday, July 19th, 2018

Article source: ARCHSTUDIO

“Layering Yard” is hidden in a traditional commercial block near the Qianmen of Beijing, with an area of about 500 square meters. The original architecture was a quadrangle courtyard commercial building with the characteristics of houses in the Republican period. Compared with residential houses, the houses here are bigger and higher. There is a row of arched doors and windows on the south along the street, and two-story houses on the north. Before the renovation, the housing structure was completely rebuilt; with the courtyard there were no doors, windows or walls, but exposed rough wooden structure beams. It is said that it was a brothel in the Republican period, then transformed into a bakery after the foundation of China, and later was left unused after the reconstruction. In the future, the building will be a complex for public activities and living. Therefore, while improving the quality of construction and infrastructure, this renovation focused on creating experience in particular scenes based on the Hutong environment, aiming to attract urban population who have increasingly diversified consumption demands.

Venue hotel in Nha Trang, Vietnam by Aline architect

Wednesday, July 11th, 2018

Article source: Aline architect

Located in the central square of Nha Trang City, the building stands out among regular square blocks. The façade area is quite narrow, so the architect have transformed the monotonous glasses into colorful “walles”. A part of elevation space is used as a place to plant trees, as a result, it creates “green” balconies, brings the comfort feelings to the users. The façade area is quite narrow but the land plot is such a corner plot so the whole room is designed to receive direct natural wind and sunlight. All rooms come with sea views.

M Social Singapore by Philippe Starck

Article source: Philippe Starck 

A new and vibrant lifestyle design hotel by Philippe Starck will debut in Singapore. M Social Singapore has 293 rooms and thrives on an interplay of friendship, community and new experiences. It is built on the democratic premise of giving the best, while being affordable to the greatest number of people, particularly those with a millennial mindset.

Guided by these principles, Starck conceptualised the project as an avant-garde laboratory in the ever-evolving neighbourhood of Robertson Quay. “M Social is where all the elements of the world – including creativity, humour and love – come together in an explosion of energy to create the joy of today’s and tomorrow’s world. To me, it is a stage dedicated to creative people,” he said.

Throughout the project, the density and strength of raw concrete is balanced with the concept of immateriality by the use of multimedia projections and video screens.

Article source: Divercity Architects 

Kinsterna Hotel is a five-star hotel in the Peloponnese, near the Byzantine fortress of Monemvasia. Surrounded by olive and citrus groves, the 17th century estate has a fascinating past, spanning Byzantine, Ottoman and Venetian times. Revealing these layers of history was integral to the mansion’s restoration and conversion into a country hotel and spa. Recreating a self-sufficient and sustainable community was an essential part of our mission to revive this long-abandoned landmark.

Harmonic Turbine Tidal Hotel in Wenchang Shi, China by Margot Krasojević Architects

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2018

Article source: v2com

The hotel harnesses tidal energy to generate electricity. The idea was to redefine the hotel typology by embracing renewable energy to create a sustainable environment. This is the last of three tidal projects using the project brief to further underline the importance of inter-disciplinary dialogue between architecture, engineering, renewable energy and industrial design.

The hotel is located on Yalong Bay, on the island of Hainan in the South China seas. Along the bay’s coastline there are sheltered areas but also sections which are a high-energy site exposed to winds and high waves, this is where the harmonic turbine hotel sits, partly anchored into the coastline’s rock with its elements free to gently move with the tide. Revolving water turbines are partially buried in the sand and respond to tidal waves creating a sustainable infrastructure as part of the hotel’s design.

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.
