Recovering the value of pure forms. It is a building that has a matrix of land whose volumetry and potentiality of square meters coincide with the shape: the triangular lot orients its longest side to the river. The project results from the extrusion of this form. A triangular-shaped building is generated, with the nucleus located towards the right angle, releasing office floors that obtain 70 meters of frontage facing the Rio de la Plata.

February 21, 2021 Hana Abdel 0

This is a project to rebuild the owner’s office and residence as well as office space for rent on a street corner of Nishi-Shimbashi, Minato-ku, Tokyo’s historic business district. Many of the mid-story rental buildings, which occupy the majority of Tokyo’s commercial and business districts, are now facing rebuilding time. While there are large development projects like Toranomon Hills along the main streets near the site, buildings of similar size can be found along the back streets. ARAKAWA Bldg. has long contributed to its surrounding cityscape, along with the growth of the owner’s business. In its rebuilding, focus was placed on creating a building that would shape an attractive cityscape for the future by revisiting the potential of the building.

February 20, 2021 Valeria Silva 0

The new pharmacy on the corner of Jurmalas gatve and Dzirciema street is not just a building, but rather a peculiar hybrid between an environmental installation and a building. Its overall image is modest and conceptually assertive, but at the same time keenly different from the surrounding urban environment and attractively expressing the contents of the building.

The primary feature of the building lies in the contemporary interpretation of the architectural language of industrial heritage from its immediate surroundings. The building balances between the appearance of the business and the residential building. Such an interpretation purposefully affirms the pluralism of modern life, business space = living space. The intent was to improve the quality of time users spend in the facility, both through the indoor and outdoor atmosphere it builds.

Housing Project Maiengasse / Esch Sintzel Architekten

February 14, 2021 Valeria Silva 0

Over the years an increasing number of annex buildings have slowly interposed themselves across the courtyards of the inner city in Basel. These garages, workshops and sheds are now being removed in a number of places. In the process, however, living sociotopes are also disappearing in which living and working were as little separated from each other as the private territories between neighbours.
