A Heat Exchanger is Transformed into a Contemporary Cultural + Sports Center

A Heat Exchanger is Transformed into a Contemporary Cultural + Sports Center | House | Scoop.it

The transformation of this heat exchanger into a culture and sports center by slovakian firm atrium studio was part of a project for the EHMK 2013.

The angular exterior form extends the building out into the public space, with a dramatic climbing wall feature. The exchanger center has five different interconnected floors that have all been turned into gallery spaces - each fulfilling a different function. a secluded rooftop consists of four trees and a large lounge area.

The structure stands out within its surrounding context of industrial-type buildings, with the existing heat exchanger wrapped with a bold geometric facade. The folded triangular shapes define the building's exterior- cut out pieces of the twisted volume expose slanted view shafts of the interior windows, helping to express the new transformation.

That is a wild looking building. Technology and builders have come a long way in the way of designing.

A Mixed-Use Project Takes Cues from Australia's Landscape

A Mixed-Use Project Takes Cues from Australia's Landscape | House | Scoop.it

Nestled between ocean and rain forest, the Wharf Road project establishes a new benchmark for ecological design within the natural environment.

Taking cues from the variety of geological outcroppings across the vastness of Australia’s landscape the Wharf Road proposal quite simply represents the translation of these features into an urban condition. Pushing up from the urban landscape the crystalline towers at Wharf-Road pierce the skyline as prismatic stalagmites reflecting and refracting light, creating an iconic urban-geology.

The architecture is simultaneously powerful, yet comfortable; straightforward, yet innovative; casual, yet elegant...

Paramount - Alma Residence by p l a s m a studio

Paramount - Alma Residence by p l a s m a studio | House | Scoop.it

This project was conceived to fulfill a two-part problematic: (1) Residence Alma--a Tyrolean guest house with 6 holiday apartments from the 1960s adorned with a pitched roof--was due for a common circulation and service core, and (2) the project architect, Ulla Hell, was looking for a new home for her young family of five in the mountain community of Sesto, Alto Adige.


The result: an under-utilized roof space gave way to an angular crown, connected to a ground floor reception space and architectural office by the host’s renovated spine.

Architecture That Drives Ecological Innovation

Architecture That Drives Ecological Innovation | House | Scoop.it

A gallery of the buildings that house the industries working to preserve the planet's natural ecology.

 

We constantly hear about the "green revolution" in building, whether it's performative facades that reduce cooling needs or grey water recycling that cuts down on water usage. However, the drive to reduce our environmental impact isn't just about designing the next LEED Gold skyscraper.

Integral to our collective efforts are a unique set of green institutions and industries, all of which require special architecture to function. These organizations not only leave a light ecological footprint, they also find ways for us to do the same: whether reducing carbon emissions or engineering better seeds that can sustain our growing population. 


It's not just green design; it's design that promotes new ways of being green.

LEED is old news, there are new ways of being green. 

Michaela Jansen's curator insight, August 29, 2013 2:48 AM

this is great, i think we all need to step it up and move forward from recycling and substituting materials. "Go big or go home," right?

Gammel Hellerup Gymnasium / BIG

Gammel Hellerup Gymnasium / BIG | House | Scoop.it

From the architect. BIG conceived a large multifunctional space that could be used for sports, graduation ceremonies and social events.The new hall comprises a sunken 1,100 m2 space, placed five meters (16.5 feet) below the ground in the center of the school’s courtyard, ensuring a good indoor climate, low environmental impact and high architectural quality.

The exterior wooden decked surface consists of untreated oak wood and white enamel coated steel benches, also designed by BIG. The only light sources at night are the benches and BIG designed seating which are outfitted with tiny LED lights beneath lighting up the entire courtyard.The edge of the roof is designed as a long social bench, its lattice design ensures the penetration of daylight below. Solar panels placed strategically around the existing buildings provide heat for the hall.
