Shenzhen Energy Hq by BIG / Bjarke Ingels Group | Office buildings

1 day 22 hours ago

The 96,000m2 office development for the state-owned Shenzhen Energy Company is designed to look and feel at home in the cultural, political and business center of Shenzhen, while standing out as a new social and sustainable landmark at the main axis of the city. The volume and height of the new headquarters for Shenzhen Energy Company was predetermined by the urban masterplan for the central area. The development consists of two towers rising 220m to the north and 120m to the south, linked together at the feet by a 34m podium housing the main lobbies, a conference center, cafeteria and exhibition space. Together with the neighboring towers, the development forms a continuous curved skyline marking the center of Shenzhen. BIG developed an undulating building envelope which creates a rippled skin around both towers and breaks away from the traditional glass curtain wall. By folding parts of the envelope that would reduce solar loads and glare, a façade with closed and open parts… continue

The Luna by Make Architects | Apartment blocks

1 day 22 hours ago

The Luna at 18 Lun Fat Street in Wan Chai is the new residential tower from Make Architects for client Vanke Property (Hong Kong) Co., Ltd. which sets a new standard for high-quality serviced apartments in Hong Kong. Located in the neighbourhood of a former printing works, the practice has used a printing block motif as the inspiration for the façade and interior design and give the scheme a striking detail that sets it apart from the neighbouring towers. The slim 29* storey tower contains 105 high-end apartments, including one top-floor luxury penthouse and a resident club house. It sits above a dual height podium containing retail and restaurants. The practice was invited to compete for the interiors and façade design for an existing design, but quickly identified a number of ways to improve the efficiency of both the apartment layouts and the form of the tower itself. Make won the competition with an increased “holistic” role to design the façade and interiors, as well as the… continue

Into the wild by Ark Shelter | Detached houses

1 day 22 hours ago

Nowadays we live in a world where we are extremely busy and from time to time we need to escape from it. Escape from the stress, duties and civilizations back to our roots where it all started. The past 3 years we have been working on re-designing, building and testing different types of Ark-Shelters. We want to create a place that gives you comfort in the heart of the nature and gives you the perfect setting for a detox of your mind. From this perspective we created a new Shelter type: “into the wild cabin”. With his 5 openings all around we wanted to create a visual focus of the nature all around. Each opening brings in another atmosphere of the nature. There is a big openable wall side and the big front glazing makes you feel like you’re sitting outside. The milk glass window in the bathroom gives you the all-natural incoming light you need. We’ve made an extra module which is set on the roof and has a big window so you can sleep under a sky full of stars. The Shelte… continue

60 Years Later: Original Le Corbusier Interior Design Vision Finally Realized

2 days 3 hours ago
[ By WebUrbanist in Design & Fixtures & Interiors. ]

When Le Corbusier designed his Brutalist Unité d’Habitation structures in Marseilles and Berlin, the architect imagined these as models for the future of vertical urban living. But, as they say in war: his plans didn’t survive contact with the enemy.

Completed in 1958, the Berlin version in particular was altered internally prior to construction, meaning that the original layouts and details Corbu had it mind were largely left on the drawing table, replaced instead by cheaper, German-drafted plans. At least until German-American architect Philipp Mohr (images Didier Gaillard-Hohlweg) bought a unit in the building.
