New architecture projects by Architonic https://www.architonic.com/en/project-feed New architecture projects by Architonic https://www.architonic.com/en/project-feed https://image.architonic.com/arc_black.jpg en Sun, 25 Feb 2018 12:13:23 +0100 ℃ (Do-C) Ebisu by Schemata Architects | Spa facilities https://www.architonic.com/en/project/schemata-architects-do-c-ebisu/5105730 Fri, 23 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0100 "℃ (Do-C)" is a new business launched by nine hours, a company running a capsule hotel chain "9h (nine hours)" in the Tokyo metropolitan area. While the 9h hotels offer a new image of a contemporary capsule hotel by completely redesigning and building new capsules from scratch, the company decided to take a different approach in designing ℃ and asked us to renovate an existing capsule hotel. Our design aims to eradicate the image of the old capsule hotel by changing the interior and surroundings, while keeping the existing capsules as they are. The color of the existing capsules –– an old-fashioned beige reminiscent of the retro design period –– was rather difficult to handle, but we intentionally used it as a base color for the interior to eradicate the impression of the existing capsules. In Japan, people often stereotypically associate capsule hotels with saunas due to the conventional style of capsule hotels in the past. The existing building was actually not equipped with… continue

The Avenue by Pollard Thomas Edwards | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/pollard-thomas-edwards-the-avenue/5105725 Fri, 23 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0100 This exemplary development inserts 76 new homes into a conservation area in a historic market town and preserves a lime-tree avenue and a listed water tower. In addition to large detached houses, it includes affordable family houses and smaller homes for the over-55 market. PTE provided a full service from concept to completion. The development won a RIBA National Award in 2016. On presenting the award the judges commented: “The Avenue represents the best of new housing developments: a committed client, a skilled architect, and a site with a fabulous mature landscape. The lack of a pattern book of designs meant the architect was able to develop its own kit of parts, without reducing individuality or variety across the scheme. The palette of materials is traditional but the detailing is modern and crisp. The housing off the main avenue forms a series of courtyards that strike a clever mix of coherence and community for the owners. This is a great lesson in defensible space without… continue

The Pavilion House by Tal Goldsmith Fish | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/tal-goldsmith-fish-the-pavilion-house/5105724 Fri, 23 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0100 The main challenge in this project was to fit four floors into a house with plot limitation, that would look like two. By stretching, extending and raising the main box we managed to hide three floors in it, and create a Pavilion looking house. The box was softened with a thin frame of floating concrete floor and a very thin roof rack on top, joined together by diagonal side walls. The fourth floor was layed on the main box in the form of a complete white cube, with no visible windows or openings. It's lack of ornaments and functional elements contribute to concealing it's presence. A vertical slit in the cube creates an inner patio which brings in air and light and is the element which breaks the mass of the cube and softens it's geometry. Iron louvres were layed along the western facade creating an isle between them and the exterior walls, giving lightness and airiness to the house. As the western sun enters the isle, different patterns of shades appear on the walls. The entr… continue

Cha Le Teahouse by Leckie Studio Architecture + Design | Restaurant interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/leckie-studio-architecture-design-cha-le-teahouse/5105722 Fri, 23 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0100 Cha Le Merchant Teahouse provides a modernist interpretation to the traditional Chinese tea ritual “Cha dao”. The intervention, designed by Leckie studio, seeks to consolidate a place to celebrate the ritual of tea-taking with a retail space where to learn more about the tradition and culture behind this millenarian drink. It is a place to share knowledge and delight in the culture of tea and to learn about the process that goes behind the highly elaborated creation of tea - from growing the plants, to the curating, mixing, and blending. “When we spoke to the client the about the reference points and ideas for the project, we proposed that the space would feel like an apothecary - it would feel like a modern interpretation of a medicinal and spiritual place” explains Michael Leckie, Founder of Leckie Studio. Materiality is central to the tea ceremony – beyond the sensual qualities of the tea, the ‘interplay’ between natural elements in the space and objects of the ceremony equall… continue

Nobu hotel Shoreditch by Ben Adams Architects | Hotel interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/ben-adams-architects-nobu-hotel-shoreditch/5105721 Fri, 23 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0100 <b>Simple luxury in the heart of a creative East London setting.</b> Ben Adams Architects (BAA) have recently completed Nobu Hotel Shoreditch, the most recent addition to their renowned international collection of hideaway retreats. This captivating luxury hotel offers a fne dining experience and stay in the heart of East London. The design marries the creative energy of the location with Nobu’s values of simple luxury with a façade that fragments at the eastern end and descends into a new pocket park, overlooked by the warehouses of Great Eastern Street to the north. Concrete panels were used on the façade in order to relate to the strong timber elements inside the building and bronze portal frames defne both the hotel and restaurant entrance. At ground level bamboo is used to provide screening to the lower level bedrooms. The hotel is located on a narrow London street so it was decided to use large pieces of glass in order to maximise daylight in the bedrooms. Internal timbe… continue

M89 Hotel by Piuarch | Hotels https://www.architonic.com/en/project/piuarch-m89-hotel/5105720 Thu, 22 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0100 M89 Hotel, the new trend of business hospitality in Milan is designed by Piuarch. Opposite the building, there is the rhythmic series of brick blocks of the Caproni factory, with their shed roof and industrial archaeology charm: the M89 Hotel – the new four-star destination at number 89 of via Mecenate– faces the factory halls that one hundred years ago hosted one of the leading aviation companies and which are now home to Gucci, after a meticulous renovation and expansion project by Piuarch. A few months after the inauguration of the maison new headquarters, Piuarch has started a new project in the east outskirts of Milan, to reinforce its character as dynamic business hub, opened to the city. The dialogue with the surrounding urban fabric – fulcrum of the concept applied to the over 35,000 m2 of the production plant occupied by the fashion company–, also defines the project for the hotel facility, whose building is designed in continuity with the pre-existing volumes, enhancing t… continue

ResoLution Signature Restaurant by 3LHD | Restaurant interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/3lhd-resolution-signature-restaurant/5105719 Thu, 22 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0100 A few years after the opening of Hotel Lone, Restaurant L - one of three restaurants in the hotel, was rebranded as ResoLution Signature Restaurant. 3LHD was involved in the transformation of a part of the restaurant space into a show cooking kitchen that will be used for presenting new techniques to chefs, for cooking schools, teambuilding activities etc. The design and the atmosphere are based on the recognizable Hotel Lone design with a somewhat modified material repertoire. Smoked oak wood and American walnut discreetly supplement the dominant terazzo floor and lattice ceiling, pointing out that the function of the space, and its character, has changed. The kitchen leaves an impression of a modern and cosy “home” kitchen, despite its professional equipment. It is separated from the rest of the restaurant by a series of rotating glazed panels that may, depending on their position, allow or block communication between spaces. As it is intended for food preparation, the central… continue

The company took the opportunity of changing their premises for a complete modernisation and digitalisation of their workspace in order to retain their market leadership and compete more effectively with global players. <b>HR led design</b> PULS has a reputation for innovation and significant investment in R&D and considers its employees to be key to its on-going success. Therefore, the HR department introduced a new social collaboration platform – a tool for more agile and transparent knowledge sharing – and commissioned a new staff centred workplace design.

Karameller Swedish Candy Shop by Leckie Studio Architecture + Design | Shop interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/leckie-studio-architecture-design-karameller-swedish-candy-shop/5105717 Thu, 22 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0100 The Swedish Candy Shop is a modernist interpretation of a traditional candy shop that specializes in high quality sweets from Scandinavia. The project was born from the clients’ memory of visiting local candy shops with neighbors and friends on weekends as a child. As a tradition, Swedish children receive a weekly allowance and typically spend most of it on ‘lördagsgodis’, meaning ‘Saturday sweets.’ The Swedish Candy Shop welcomes families and tourists alike, showcasing a vast selection of natural sweets while exposing Vancouver, BC to this delightful Scandinavian tradition. Located in an old railroad warehouse building in Yaletown, the shop finds itself situated within both a thriving urban neighborhood and a historical industrial area. The shop’s long and narrow floor plan and existing open timber framing provided the opportunity to highlight and respect the character of the building through the decision to expose the massive timber columns and joists in the space. Respecting thes… continue

Das Gesamtkonzept sollte Sauna, Dusche und eine Sitzgelegenheit beinhalten und sich architektonisch in das Gesamtensemble des Hauses einfügen. Der Stil sollte modern aber nicht zu „clean“ sein, sprich mit der richtigen Kombination aus modernen Elementen und traditionellen Materialien eine wohlige Atmosphäre schaffen.

Der Bereich/Raum für die Sauna war bereits vorgegeben. Die Sauna sollte formal stimmig in das Badezimmer integriert und direkt unter eine Dachschräge verbaut werden. Der Zugang zum Saunabereich war bereits bauseitig vorhanden. Die Saunagestaltung sollt offen angelegt werden und durch eine großes Panorama-Giebelverglasung, den Blick ins Badezimmer ermöglichen.

La Taqueria by Leckie Studio Architecture + Design | Restaurant interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/leckie-studio-architecture-design-la-taqueria/5105714 Thu, 22 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0100 La Taqueria was born through the idea of creating a modern interpretation of a taco stand that captures the spirit of eating street tacos in Mexico City. The design approach was to use everyday materials in a simple and honest way in order to create pragmatic aesthetic that avoided being “over designed”. The colourful Talavera patterned tiles (hand made in Guadalajara), concrete floors, and the painted menu pay homage to a simple Mexican aesthetic. The scope of work included the installation of a commissary kitchen to support 3 restaurant locations and food product distribution, with a 400 sf food retail space.

Slack Technologies Vancouver Headquarters by Leckie Studio Architecture + Design | Office facilities https://www.architonic.com/en/project/leckie-studio-architecture-design-slack-technologies-vancouver-headquarters/5105713 Wed, 21 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0100 The Vancouver headquarters for an award-winning communications software company repurposes an industrial warehouse building in Vancouver’s historical Yaletown district. As a rapidly growing communications-software startup, the client’s technology aims to revolutionize the typical modes of corporate communications; humane thinking and empathy are core social values for the company. The design challenge for the headquarters was to materialize a physical laboratory which promotes the company’s attitude towards digital communications and to successfully integrate this layout into an existing building with a distinct industrial character. Functionally, this meant re-imagining the roles of social working spaces to make them nconventionally flexible and reconfigurable. There are no private offices in this project. Typical static meeting rooms are supplemented by mobile meeting boxes: custom cubic rooms on wheels intended for portable breakout or informal meeting space. Amidst the open floor p… continue

UYU Ice Cream Shop by Leckie Studio Architecture + Design | Shop interiors https://www.architonic.com/en/project/leckie-studio-architecture-design-uyu-ice-cream-shop/5105712 Wed, 21 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0100 The client’s shop is a soft serve ice cream parlour that uses organic milk as a base ingredient in all of its products. Inspired by the crystalline patterns found in frost, the space interprets the product offering through an irregular motif that was applied through metal wall and ceiling panels. This pattern also references an abstraction of the shop’s logo and identity, and playfully suggests the store's product: ice cream. Working with a tight budget, the metal panels became the main focus of the project. The intention was to develop an immersive front-of-house experience to draw customers in from the street. Patrons are given the sensation of entering a walk-in freezer lined with frost. Through an iterative design process of simplification and standardization, the sizing and coordination of these panels was key in providing a high quality experience. Held off the wall and back lit with LED strips, the perforated panels cast shadows giving the walls and ceiling depth. The clie… continue

Located in the district of Fröttmaning, right next to the Allianz Arena in Munich, the project will create an interactive adventure for the visitors on the theme of horses with twelve additional pavilions. The show palace offers space for 1,700 viewers, who can watch the unique horse show on a 40 meter long stage. All visitors are guaranteed a good view and a short distance to the stage since this layout allows only a few rows of seats. Show palace and stage design have been developed to allow the access of the horses from all directions to the show space. Along with high tech projection technologies, reality and virtual show effects merge to a flexible total theatre.

Ratatouille by Luca Nichetto | Office facilities https://www.architonic.com/en/project/luca-nichetto-ratatouille/5105710 Wed, 21 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0100 Located in the Victoria Hall at the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair 2018, the Ratatouille arena represents Luca Nichetto’s unique vision where the Design Bar and the Design & Architecture Talks meet for the first time. Like a Roman arena, a historical place for human rituals such as consuming food and watching shows, Ratatouille is an open oval-shaped space, where symmetrical paths and functional areas echo of French formal gardens, while a perimeter of monumental elements evokes the ruins of Stonehenge. A stratification of references to different eras that, mixing with details inspired by science fiction movies and comic books, they make Ratatouille an exciting visual journey while exploring the delicacies prepared by the chef Lina Ahlin.

House Frances by Those Architects | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/those-architects-house-frances/5105709 Wed, 21 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0100 NOT SO SUBURBAN, SUBURBAN. A new dwelling where a generous visual and physical connection to the greater suburban block is the imperative. Sydney, Australia. Traditionally, regardless of orientation the Australian suburban block is longer than it is wide. Typically, dwellings are built to the side boundary setback in order to maximise the floor plate along its length. The result is often a feeble connection to the rear yard rendering it the bastion of the weekend bbq and resulting in poor solar access, inefficient circulation and suffering from a lack of natural ventilation. Further, in the absence of a panoramic view, as is the case with this house, the result can leave one feeling walled in, constrained and disconnected. The architectural parti for this new dwelling in Freshwater, Sydney by THOSE Architects is primarily to consider the relationships between the fundamental components of a dwelling to each other and to the broader context of the site.

Lightslice by Cometa Architects | Living space https://www.architonic.com/en/project/cometa-architects-lightslice/5105708 Tue, 20 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0100 In Barcelona, a metamorphosis of a small apartment of 46 m² (151 ft) into a bright contemporary spatial experience, reminds us that the natural light is the supreme of all architectural materials. The Lightslice, is a skinny triangle shaped apartment, located in the Historic Eixample of Barcelona. The architects stripped down its dark layout and ‘rescued’ it from the run-down state, tranforming it into a luxurious bright space. To make the most of the compact 46sqm space and the available light, Cometa Architects removed all of the internal walls to create an open-plan apartment. Layers of floor tiling were removed and the original beams which were discovered under a false ceiling, finally got to be restored. The design method to tackle the new spatial organization is the use of a longitudinal axis, on which the various objects such as the kitchen island, the bed the washing basin, have being perpendicularly placed, freeing the walls and leading to a more contemporary experience… continue

This creates a transcendent environment that feels gallery-like and serene. The design centers on a conceptual ‘lantern’ within the dark building core, which communicates a sense of scale, luminescence, and transparency, and envelopes the series of operatories within. The lantern wall panels not only light up the dark building shell, but also glow through the storefront to brighten the street. The lantern provides patient privacy while engaging with the pedestrian streetfront, in an effort to energize the surrounding community. In place of a common waiting room, a park-like bench extends the length of the space. Wood trellises provide separation between the bench and operatory rooms without closing off the space. Moments of material contrast are introduced betw… continue

The client commissioned us to redesign the brand of beauty salons L'OCCOCÓ, one of the largest franchises of beauty salons in Mexico. They wanted to reflect an image of elegance with the necessary character so that the clients felt identified with the brand. The exercise began by analyzing the existing salons, understanding the dynamics of use, the furniture necessary for the performance of salon activities, the flows of customers and staff and the optimal spaces to work freely. Our language had to simplify the current, to purify it, we had to identify the indispensable and readjust what could be adapted in another way.

A donation of 70 works of art from the Danish artist Arne Haugen Sørensen made it possible for Vestjyllands Kunstpavillon to expand the Kunstpavillon with further 400 m2 in connection to the existing pavillon. Having designed the first building, we re-established the collaboration with the museum and designed an extension that brings new life into the architecture while maintaining the original atmosphere and poetry. It was a focal point in the design of the extension to continue the architectural vision from the first building to create a cohesion and one unity. <b>Like rushes in the wind</b> Thus, the extension continues the architectural concept from the original building with a walkway for visitors and bypassers all the way around the core. An open space between the int… continue

Augustinianum by Studio Leon Thier | Schools https://www.architonic.com/en/project/studio-leon-thier-augustinianum/5105701 Mon, 19 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0100 The Augustinianum is known in Eindhoven as a ‘school for smart students’. The ambition of the school is to not just distinguish themselves through thorough education, but also through incorporating sports, drama and pop music in their programme. A school that shows what it stands for and adds substance to its curriculum. Originally, the Augustinianum was a traditional grammar school run by Augustinian clerics. The existing buildings from the 1950s no longer met the demands of present times, which is why the decision was made to realize compact new buildings on the former sports grounds located alongside the existing buildings. The central design idea for these new buildings was the Agora. The Agora, literally ‘gathering place’, was a meeting point and a trade location in many cities in ancient Greece. In the Augustinianum, the Agora serves as a symbol for encounters, located in the heart of the school. Around this area, the ‘expertise areas’, aimed at linguistic science, exact scie… continue

Occupying two floors of the historic Carl Gould-designed Times Square Building (constructed in 1916), the project transforms a dated, street-level retail space and basement into a bustling community and arts educational center. Composed of seven rentable studios, The Studios was established to fill a city-wide void in state-of-the-art space for rehearsals, auditions, readings, recording sessions, and performances. With four 1,000-square-foot studios, two flexible classrooms, and a recording studio set within the walls of a former bank vault, the facility provides a venue to incubate and launch local talent, and meet the growing demand for flexible performance space. Studio floors are sprung for dancing; two of the basement floors have resilient flooring for specialized dance and dance shoes, such as ballet point, and tap.

Villa Allenmoos by Bauwerk Parkett reference projects | Manufacturer references https://www.architonic.com/en/project/bauwerk-parkett-reference-projects-villa-allenmoos/5105698 Mon, 19 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0100 URBAN VILLA IN ZURICH Nineteenth- and 20th-century urban villas are just as much a part of Zurich’s cityscape as Lake Zurich or the white-and-blue trams. One of these is the Villa Allenmoos in Zurich Oerlikon. The urban villa was built in 1908 as a three-family house, and is a shining example of villas of this period with its hipped mansard roof, bays and towers. In 2012, a couple decided to buy the Allenmoos villa: The well-preserved building structure and the original floor plans were exactly what they were looking for. The new owners only wished to add a garden pavilion to the building. Since 2014, this new modern building has been located in the garden next to the old walls. The old building did not undergo much change as part of the renovation. Installations that were added over the years were dismantled to reveal the original building structure. The building was energy-optimised, and the room assignment was changed. Externally, the new building offers contrast to the… continue

The vicinity of the city centre and the Uetliberg recreation area make this neighbourhood a popular place to live. Many of the old buildings must now be replaced with new ones. This way, more living space can be created, and the new building structure can be adapted to the needs of its new residents. The ‘In der Ey’ project is no exception, with four replacement buildings by the ERSIAN AG construction company. In order to achieve a quality result in replacing four old terraced houses, the company issued a tender for a study contract, won by the architect firm ww. As it developed the concept of the project, the firm worked closely with the city of Zurich, and its Office for Urban Planning. The five-floor building rows are slightly tilted in the top section, and are oriented at a right angle towards the street. This way, the architects f… continue

Hochgebirgsklinik (HGK) Davos is an internationally renowned clinic specialising in the treatment of allergies, lung and respiratory diseases, cardiovascular diseases and dermatological diseases. Having started off as a tuberculosis sanatorium in 1901, Hochgebirgsklinik Davos now attracts patients from all over the world who frequently return for further treatment of their chronic diseases. Having recognised that a pleasant environment supports the recovery process of returning and post-surgery patients, HGK commissioned the OOS team of architects from Zurich to refurbish and convert the clinic’s private ward. Smart design increases well-being To ensure that the Davos site is fit for the future, the management opted for comp… continue

In order to emphasize and perpetuate the horizon, we pulled it's silhouette into the house with a brass element. The element penetrates through the wooden clad walls, allowing delicate angles to soften the linear composition and creating a feel of movement. All the wooden walls conceal a variety of functions as well as passages to different private areas of the house. The objective of the project was to create an experience of a seamless space, one that would appear effortless and accurate. To solve all technical difficulties and the complicated details in an elegant manner. As the clients wished to be surrounded with nature, while maintaining an inner warmth stemming from sleek design scheme in a way they feel is pleasant for them.

Saint Jacques de la Lande by Álvaro Siza Vieira | Church architecture / community centres https://www.architonic.com/en/project/alvaro-siza-vieira-saint-jacques-de-la-lande/5105694 Thu, 15 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0100 The church of Saint-Jacques-de-la-Lande will be the first church built in France’s Brittany region in the 21st-century. The project has been contracted to the Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza Vieira. Siza’s use of light and white concrete provide a unique ceremonial space that gently folds into the neighborhood south of Rennes, a residential area with five-story housing blocks. Siza's main concern when designing the project was being able to integrate the church into the urban fabric. One of the hallmarks of the building is the circular shape on the second floor, which will hold up to 120 people - freeing up the first floor for social and administrative areas.  The church will be inserted as a free-standing volume that adapts to the existing plan and the dimensions of the nearby buildings and spaces, extant or planned, in particular the size of the apartment block to the north. The programme is distributed across two levels by superimposing a cylinder with a 14.75 m outer diamet… continue

The Walled - Tsingpu Yangzhou Retreat by Neri & Hu Design and Research Office | Hotels https://www.architonic.com/en/project/neri-amp-hu-design-and-research-office-the-walled-tsingpu-yangzhou-retreat/5105693 Thu, 15 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0100 Situated in close proximity to Yangzhou’s scenic Slender West Lake, the site given to Neri&Hu to design a 20-room boutique hotel was a challenging one, dotted with small lakes and a handful of existing structures. The design brief called for the adaptive reuse of several of the old buildings by giving them new functions, while adding new buildings to accommodate the hotel’s capacity needs. Neri&Hu’s strategy to unify these scattered elements was to overlay a grid of walls and paths onto the site to tie the entire project together, resulting in multiple courtyard enclosures. The inspiration for the design actually originates with the courtyard house typology of vernacular Chinese architecture. As with the traditional courtyard, the courtyard here gives hierarchy to the spaces, frames views of the sky and earth, encapsulates landscape into architecture, and creates an overlap between interior and exterior. Constructed entirely from reclaimed grey brick, the gridded walls’ narrow in… continue

Owners Streetcar and Dream Unlimited have restored the property as a key landmark in the city’s rapid eastward expansion, which includes new walkable neighbourhoods and parks, artisanal shops and restaurants, as well as distinctive arts organizations. Built in 1891 as the offices for Dingman’s soap factory, the Romanesque building at Queen and Broadview was converted a few years later into the Broadview Hotel, but in the 1970s slid into steady decline as a boarding house and the infamous Jilly’s Strip Club.

As visitors arrive, they drive through the unmarked vineyards, past a historic house and duck ponds towards a minimalist black building, designed by celebrated local architecture frm gh3. Severe in presence, uniform in texture, black in colour, in a shape evocative of a barn, the building is softened by a glowing beacon of warmth radiating through its second storey, central windowed wall. Visitors arrive at a discrete back door, where they are led up the stairs to the second floor restaurant. DesignAgency was tasked with transforming the linear interior into an open kitchen, lounge and bar, and a two-part dining area.

The heart of Angelopoulos' architectural project is always the overcoming of the depersonalization of the non-place to create intimate and original atmospheres and moods. This research could only lead to a collaboration with the products and the experience of Mosaico +.

Casa ECS by Giuseppe Gurrieri | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/giuseppe-gurrieri-casa-ecs/5105688 Wed, 14 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0100 Casa ECS, with its special laboratory for artists, rises in Sicily on an area of a high environmentally-friendly allure within the city of Scicli. Thanks to the natural configuration of the territory it is possible to appreciate the gentle slope of the land towards the Mediterranean sea: a series of terraces, retained by dry stone walls, with olive and carob trees growing up on them, fades beyond the horizon. The project was realised following the principles of a low environmental impact intervention on the territory, clearly visible in the choice of adapting the building to the natural area and in the energy-saving study carried out. The central idea focuses on the construction of a retaining wall covered with the local stone, reproducing the typical receding terrace, which generates a natural step that allowed to plan the insertion of the building into the environment, creating a noticeable continuity with the country-side view and the traditional cultivated land.

Despite the constant threat that inflicts the area, the residents (a young couple in their 30's with a toddler, a baby and a beautiful golden-retriever) chose to build their home in the place where they were born and raised.   The house was designed in an industrial, minimal and modern look, with the use of natural and raw materials such as Concrete, Metal and Wood. The ground floor contains a spacious Kitchen, a Livingroom with a double height ceiling, a Guestroom with a private bath, a Playroom and a Toilet.   Structural concrete and metal beams were chosen to remain exposed in order to give the space an industrial look.

The chosen location is privileged, in a plateau area, central in the CNAE, surrounded by a rural environment, with an extraordinary panoramic view, that also impelled the design of the building. The spacial experience begins with the access route to the chapel, a gradual passage to a more introspective environment. This space is delimited by a wood fence, composed of spaced poles, sufficient to delimit the space, but purposely open, showing a chapel available to all who pass by. Crowning the entrance there is a bell, acclaimer of Christian life, and allusive to the catholic Scout association of Portugal and to the XXIII Nat… continue

The strong form and reduced material palette presents a more dynamic, abstract figure in a land that was once rural, primarily agricultural and dotted by the silhouettes of singular structures such as barns, sheds, and silos. The building’s bold profile provides the Clinic’s identity for children and parents alike. Cayenne-colored metal panels wrap the south elevation.

We propose not only universal design, for example, dental chair for the wheelchair and approaching slope, but also space for kids with traditional “tatami” mat, which is also familiar to old people. For this space, we made glass wall between examining room, to keep the parents eyes to the kids under treatment. We tried to design the impressive wooden ceiling as we spend much time to see the ceiling during clinical examination. As we had gap of ceiling height in original building, so we designed geometric and rhythmical coved ceiling to unite experience at waiting room and examining room smoothly.

In the first one, the ceramic material is fragmented and expertly recomposed according to a precise layout. The other application technique features the superimposition of made-to-measure ceramic elements fixed to a metal substructure.

The unusual, experimental solution adopted for the ceramic envelope, which covers every vertical and sloping surface completely, creates a monolithic, mono-material and monochrome architectural style that blends in flawlessly with the surrounding landscape. The structure itself and the meticulous attention to details enhance the compositional, performance, and application potential of the state-of-the-art porcelain stoneware used.

The proposal is a way to intervention in a 19th century building ... the traces of the past are engraved in the new buildings, like a memory of ancient geometries ... It is an unfinished architecture that the time will end up composing in the place ... Intervention Proposal The proposal maintains and enhances the original values: pavilion typology in a 19th century building, pleasant scale in a landscaped surround, but neglected until now: interesting spaces between pavilions, suitable scale, well-proportioned patios: good connection between the patient and the concrete environment and environmental: perfect relationship between nature and architecture. The aim is to enhance the original "hygienist spirit" and "therapeutic spirit" favouring occupational therapy and daily activities as fundamental treatments elements for good care of patients: therefore the relationship of architecture wi… continue

Deliverables included a space exuding the radiance associated with beautiful, vibrant and shiny hair brimming with vitality. Therefore, we endeavored to create a space that would envelop the body in such radiance by making the entire ceiling into a luminous crystal symbolizing the ideal of resplendent hair. Metallic waves(Please refer to below for more information), representing the bright, aerial, gracious way in which hair flows, are intricately weaved into a white matrix of geometric patterns (a lattice structure featuring a signature color gradation of white and wooden tones) to produce a mystical luminous crystal from which a subdued light scatters as it bounces off the creases in the metal. Abundant expressivity is imparted to the crystal of light by the overlapping of the white lattice and the metal wave, with the former gushing through the space like sparkling whitewater, and the latter producing a current filled wit… continue

C.F. Møller has designed the complex like a small town with individual volumes located around a square and winding streets. The international school, which only teaches in English, is so popular that it has now been expanded with new facilities. 130 students are ready for the new school year at the International School, which with the new building can accommodate up to 200 students. Inside the two-storey building of light brickwork, there are omnipresent views to the green landscape and a pleasant natural light influx, creating a bright and friendly environment for the children and staff. The window openings are placed in a pixelated and lively pattern that allows natural light deep into the rooms - and opens the views for big and small alike. Centrally located in the school complex is a long superstructure with a curved form. The supers… continue

It aims to contribute positively by linking the University of Copenhagen with the surrounding neighbourhoods and wider city. The Tower is an extension of Panum, the University of Copenhagen’s Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, and contains both research and teaching facilities, as well as a conference centre with auditoriums and meeting rooms, connected to the latest technolo-gy. In order to create architecture for world-class health research, it is important to design a venue which encourages many opportunities for coming together, transcending different disciplines, from the general public to the research community. This helps to communi-cate ongoing research activities, leading to knowledge sharing and inspiration for new and groundbreaking research. By selecting a tower typology, there is… continue

Maggie's Centre Barts by Steven Holl | Hospitals https://www.architonic.com/en/project/steven-holl-maggie-039s-centre-barts/5105671 Fri, 09 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0100 The site in the center of London is adjacent to the large courtyard of St. Bartholomew’s Hospital. Founded in Smithfield in the 12th century, the hospital is the oldest in London and was founded at the same time as the St. Bartholomew the Great Church in 1123. Rahere founded the church and hospital “for the restoration of poor men.” Layers of history characterize this unique site, connecting deeply to the Medieval culture of London. While most all of the realized Maggie’s Centres have been horizontal buildings, the centre at St. Barts will be more vertical, sitting on the historically charged site. It will replace a pragmatic 1960s brick structure adjacent to a 17th century stone structure by James Gibbs, holding the “Great Hall” and the famous Hogarth staircase. The building is envisioned as a “vessel within a vessel within a vessel.” The structure is a branching concrete frame, the inner layer is bamboo and the outer layer is matte white glass with colored glass fragments recallin… continue

A school that, in addition to being the biggest investment in a new building in Odder Municipality, is designed based on a human scale with recognisable motives such as pitched roofs - and supports modern education and teaching. A school inspired by the local context.
 Skovbakken is a primary school for 650 students. The new building replaces an existing school and is in its scale, its architectonic expression and in its materials inspired by its surroundings: the neighbourhood and the public forest. “The school is designed as a two-storey building inspired by the existing context. We decided to use pitched roofs and a human scale that ensures identification for the students and the inhabitants in Odder”, explains founding partner at Cebra, Carsten Primdahl. He continues: “We have preserved as many of the original trees as possible as they convey a soft transition to the green surrou… continue

White Lodge by Studio Octopi | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/studio-octopi-white-lodge/5105669 Fri, 09 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0100 White Lodge is part of a group of houses along the Upper Richmond Road better known as ‘Captains’ or ‘Nelson Houses’. Built in the 1860s, the name is attributed to the former landowner who developed the land, who married Francis Bolton, daughter of Thomas Nelson, 2nd Earl Nelson and also great niece of Admiral Horatio Nelson. Studio Octopi were commissioned to extend and refurbish the private house in 2013. The design brief asked for the addition of two bedrooms, playroom and resolution of the disjointed ground floor plan. The completed works have extended the house to 250sqm, a 100sqm basement and 65sqm rear extension. The kitchen extension replaces a 1990s conservatory and unifies the rear elevation and relationship with the rear garden. Taking reference from the existing late Georgian gault brickwork, the new 21” long, Petersen ‘Kolumba’ handmade bricks were chosen to emphasise the broad width of the property. The extension’s flank walls are set in from the boundary, the eastern… continue

The Dovecote-Granary by Tiago do Vale Arquitectos | Detached houses https://www.architonic.com/en/project/tiago-do-vale-arquitectos-the-dovecote-granary/5105667 Thu, 08 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0100 The Dovecote-Granary is a place of serenity and introspection, where one can establish a strong connection with both nature and oneself. Without a conventional function the space is its own purpose: a treehouse-temple of sorts. Its roots are humble, though unexpectedly pragmatic, creative and sophisticated in their design and solutions: a precious little jewel of vernacular Minho architecture. Originally built in the late XIX century, its starting point were two traditional northern Portugal maize granaries standing over granite bases. A common roof united them under which there was a dovecote. Finally, the space between the two granaries was used to dry cereals, with two huge basculating panels controlling the ventilation. This incredible design was an unusual but smart combination of three very common vernacular typologies (granary, dovecote, drying shed) that are still part of our collective memory. The execution, unfortunately, was not without its problems. Built out of oak w… continue

Its prefab steel structure is (con)temporary, flexible, sustainable and relocatable. And it only took 3 months from concept to completion. That's the new mixed use building in HCMC designed by Vietnamese interior design company Module K. The building sits nestled between classic and French inspired villas in HCMC’s hipster district Thao Dien. “We chose a prefabricated steel structure solution, quite uncommon in Vietnam where the traditional construction is bricks and concrete. It’s cost effective, easy to erect and disassemble, extremely flexible and very light and airy. We can easily break it up when our ten-year lease ends and move it to a new location for another serene house of our own. It also helps preserve the initial capital investment”, says Jade Nguyễn Kim Ngọc, design director of Module K.

In terms of concept, it was intended to create a dwelling with characteristics and urban interior finishes, that manage to integrate in the rural and more traditional context of Santarém. Designed to be a single storey dwelling and situated on top of a gentle slope, it allows a quiet and serene usufruct that derives from the privileged relation between the interior and the exterior. The Ring House consists of three well-defined functional areas, a social area, a service area and a private area. The latter, which has a longer body with East-West orientation, acts as a barrier to the street that passes north. This barrier allows the creation of a private social area, consisting of a terrace with swimming pool to the South. Between the Private area (to the North) and the Social area (to the South) is the Services area, which contains the main entrance of the House the East), a Kitchen,… continue

Ground floor spaces are often rooms off this cellular corridor with bedrooms at first floor compromised due to the non active circulation space that runs from front to back of the building. The project looked to challenge the traditional layout by using the staircase to cut across the building. This removed the dark corridor and landing spaces and instead liberating the plan installing a CNC cut dynamic staircase with active landing study and playroom spaces. The existing internal walls, chimney breasts, staircase and floors were removed, retaining only the facade, to enable the building floor levels to be dropped to create a sunken ground floor plan that enables a generous floor to ceiling height at loft level. All new elements to the building are clad in douglas fir to create a visual legend for the building, whilst the existing walls are retained as painte… continue

It is expected that this area will continue to develop and increase in residential population. With these circumstances in view, we designed an “urban-style” nursery school building that can efficiently accommodate increased numbers of children, while also encouraging their curiosity, creativity, and connection with the local community. The rooms and the garden are stacked to make effective use of the limited land area. On the street-facing wall are a number of bay windows in color frames shaped like the block houses that children often draw. This unique visual presentation inspires curiosity, while the bay windows provide extra interior spaces for children to play and expand their creativity. We aimed to give the nursery school a warm atmosphere with wood materials and comfortable furnishings for the interiors. Meanwhile, the box frame type reinforced concrete constru… continue

Cultivators for passion, the client requested a new service building, a little architecture able to contain a room for tree winter rest and a storage room for agricultural tools but also a space for silence and meditation among the plants. This design reveals the mechanism that simultaneously enchances architecture and nature: the contrast between the artificial character of the former and the organic traits of the latter. The main building material is natural larch wood. The façades are made of rough sawn wooden slats, which are attached to the inner wooden structure along with polycarbonate. The slope of the roof is designed to be a continuation of the façade, maintaining the integrity of the volume. Besides meeting some pragmatic functions the project developed to become a study on transparency and translucency. During the day it becomes tran… continue

The construction rights created the limitations of a very small land cover, restrictive and even curved construction lines and a rectangular house where every centimeter counts. "Winning land in this country is equivalent to winning the lottery," Shenkin says. "When you finally win, you want to divide the land so as to utilize the area to the maximum and build as much as possible on much less. The current project was defined as a duplex in the construction plan, where the outline does not allow this, being only 2 x 5 meters. Also, the committee requires planning as many parking slots as possible on this land area. The situation we had to deal with in this project was challenging yet familiar." The house is rectangular but one corner is curved for reason of construction line limitations. Each floor is 72 m2. The ground floor is completely open and has the kitchen, living room, dini… continue

The apartment, on a dense urban site in London Bridge, had been extended and altered when it was originally converted from office space to residential use. The resulting layout was unconventional with dark and unwelcoming rooms. HASA Architects has opened up the space by removing all partitions to create an open-plan form which allows visual connections across the apartment. A series of vertical panels have been introduced to create new spaces, connected by a central axis. These panels of white oiled Douglas Fir not only separate out the living and sleeping spaces but the use of material throughout brings a greater sense of space, light and openness.

The plot is sloping towards the west overlooking the Gudbrandsdalen valley. In the area, it's a rapid and concentrated development of cabins and you have strong winds coming from the north. This makes it important to try to provide shelter from the wind and to establish private spaces close to the building. The building is organized as a volume put in the east - west axis of the plot, with a closed north facade and a open facade towards the south, giving great views of the valley below. The volume is given L-shaped ends to provide sheltered entrance from prevailing winds to the north, and to establish private space to the south. With the floor and roof following the terrain through five different levels, the building is connected closely to the natural slope of the terrain. The plan is solved within a strict geometrical concept. 12 identical triangles makes the shape of the cabin, an… continue

Slot House by Studio Octopi | Living space https://www.architonic.com/en/project/studio-octopi-slot-house/5105646 Fri, 02 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0100 The house was extensively modified in the 1980s yet suffered from a fragmented plan, poor connectivity between the principal living spaces and restrictive ceiling heights. In 2013 Studio Octopi were appointed to recapture and preserve the original proportions of the period terrace, whilst reinterpreting the layout to suit modern family living. A 10m high glass infill extension slots between the reconfigured existing closet wing and the neighbouring property, divided as two sash windows, it forms a double height dining area at basement level and a master ensuite at first floor. An open tread stair allows views to stretch from the basement across the double height space to the first floor. The closet wing, which was extended in brick; enabled the upper floors to be remodelled with increased head height. The new windows take reference from the adjoining property; whilst at basement level a 6m pivot door provides access to the patio garden. A polished concrete floor in the basement ext… continue

As one of a select few new, high density, office developments in the city’s central business district this new tower will bring valuable diversity, revenue and jobs to the neighbourhood and to the city as a whole. The design rationale for the new ‘Exchange’ tower is entirely derived from its surrounding context and environment; in particular the existing Old Stock Exchange building, which is to be preserved and rehabilitated on the site. This refined, handsome and elegant building has facades of carefully composed vertical pilasters that are designed both to best accentuate its height and at the same time ground the building within the streetscape of the city. The new tower does not attempt to dominate or compete with this prominent original building but rather to successfu… continue

The culmination of two decades of planning and redevelopment for its waterfront neighborhood, the project weaves together architecture, interior architecture, and urban design in a unified whole that functions literally as a living part of both the city and the harbor. <b>Site and Program</b> The extensive and complex program encompasses at once a single building and a new urban district. Occupying a former brownfield site on the downtown waterfront, the development is approximately 14 acres on land and 8 acres over water, with 1 million square feet of convention space, 90,000 square feet of retail space, 450 parking stalls, and 400,000 square feet of walkways, bikeways, public open space, and plazas.

Car Park in Paris by Anonyme | Infrastructure buildings https://www.architonic.com/en/project/anonyme-car-park-in-paris/5105643 Thu, 01 Feb 2018 00:00:00 +0100 To respond to the building permit application for rue Rebiere in the 17th district, Paris Habitat OPH has decided to substitute to the Tour du Bois le Pretre its small car park to create a landscaped garden surrounding the Tour under which a 123 spaces car park will be built. The narrowness of the plot drove us to merge the interior access ways with the access ramps at the different levels. Thus only I non-steep slope serving all 123 spaces has been designed. The radius of curvature required by the property boundaries have given the parking a spiral shape. The structure is in in accordance with this shape and allows every points of the parking to have a global view of the space. The beams harmoniously guide the path and are supporting a continuous light network promoting a reassuring environment required by such a project ( no nooks or shadowy corners). The choice of a raw structure for the space will be punctuated by splashes of colours and exaggerated signal panels therefore ac… continue

Starting from the building's construction and structural constraints in which the apartment is inserted, based on load-bearing walls with a clear and defined bay structure, the project proposes three large program blocks: a first access-related block, where the entrance, the guest bathroom (from which you access the laundry room) and the guest bedroom are located; a second block housing the master bedroom and the adjoining walk-in closet and bathroom; and a third block that is a single large space where we find the kitchen, the dining room and the living room, and which, in turn, acts as a swivel joint between the two other blocks. Each of these blocks includes a service space and a living space, and the relationship established between these two spaces is based on a change of mat… continue

The design features compact living quarters, expressed as a single mass, floating above an open area for flexible gathering and automobile calibration/display. The second-floor volume is shifted forward to allow for double-height views to the garage space at the back, while creating an everyday carport beneath the hovering bed chamber in the front. The twenty-foot cantilever is made possible by W30x116 steel beams, and a light-filled stairwell provides physical access between the two volumes. Custom-made steel and glass sliding doors open the living space to a large roof terrace surrounded by tree canopies, enabling indoor/outdoor living in an urban setting.  A collaborative design and construction process was key to the project. The Matt Fajkus Architecture team worked with the general contractor, Risinger Homes, to design, fabricate, and install the large custom steel doors and windows. A makeshift steel fabr… continue

Thus, after finding that the existing constructions, far from forming a fully coherent set, showed some indications of different treatment and states of conservation quite different from each other, it was easily concluded what to save and what to destroy, even though it is perceived that, the intervention should guarantee its own logic, a result that shows coherence and at the same time the naturalness that characterizes it - a splited intervention was not advocated here, which, even if it guaranteed an image or a set of easily readable images, did not introduce a degree of depth and density as it should characterize the architecture.

The site is located in a residential area close to central ​​Shizuoka city.In the area,it is difficult to predict the future environment.Because a lot of houses are rebuilding due to aging.So we attempted to create a depth between the private room and the city. First,we removed harf of the first floor and made a void and set up large windows in upper side. Then,it appeared bright living space like a outside.All of private rooms are open to this living space and void as well as opening to outside.It is the second facade in the house. With this composition which can be said that "house in the house",it creates a distinctive depth between private rooms and city. Shuhei Goto Architects continue

The complex urban and historical surroundings of the building inspired Sheppard Robson architects to create a unique design. Traditional limestone and 570 black formparts by Rieder impart an open appearance to the building. Thanks to the support of the R2R department at Rieder, it was possible to find a technically viable and cost-efficient solution for the installation of the 2,300 m² formparts in spite of the tight schedule. Their special visual effect of the concrete elements is achieved with their sparkling surface "luce". Balfour Beatty Sheppard Robson continue

The result: Each of the deformed facade elements is just as unique as the collection pieces that are kept in the research and collection centre. The production uses an object similar to the hand axe, over which the material is applied. The hardening of the glassfibre reinforced concrete results not only in the desired imprint, but also in a material-specific, unique fold design, marking the character of eacht element and giving the facade of the monolithic building its liveliness.

Boston University by Rieder | Manufacturer references https://www.architonic.com/en/project/rieder-boston-university/5105635 Wed, 31 Jan 2018 00:00:00 +0100 Using Rieder slim concrete elements with an integrated fastening system permits for the first time the use of concrete for element facades. Individual formparts with a U-cross section are used as thin vertical concrete fins to produce a facade with contrasting typologies. Depending on the viewing angle, the facade appears transparent and opaque at the same time, due to the cantilevered concrete fins. The sandstone coloured concrete elements also function as sun protection. With the development of its own fastening system, Rieder made it possible to quickly assemble the 1.300 U-shaped parts made of glassfibre reinforced concrete. The pre-assembly of the fixing anchors ensured quick and weather-independent assembly on site. The formparts were simply attached to the substructure and then finetuned. Due to the low weight of the only 13 mm thin elements and the high spans up to 4.25 m, less material was required for the substructure. Payette Architects Verarbeiter: Ipswich Bay Glass continue

Our design draws on Anderson’s meticulous, memorable and magical worlds to create an inviting destination with whimsical character and international appeal. Much like Anderson’s mythical Budapest Hotel, The Budapest Café is designed to offer an experience that detaches patrons from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
