Raanan Stern studio: a modular, flexible live-work space

Raanan Stern studio: a modular, flexible live-work space | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

In the artist’s central Tel Aviv apartment, architects Ranaan Stern and Shany Tal from Raanans Stern’s Studio designed a versatile 20sqm studio workspace.

The artist’s varied family and personal collection includes pieces dating from the 1940’s to the present. Every piece that was going be stored was measured: they were organized and ordered according to groups, sizes and artistic connections.  

After the organizational and calculation stage, four separate proportions were discovered that receive expression as each section is opened.

Pittsburgh's "breathing" building by Gensler aims to be the world's greenest skyscraper

Pittsburgh's "breathing" building by Gensler aims to be the world's greenest skyscraper | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

The PNC Financial Services Group hopes to exceed LEED Platinum requirements while promoting a healthy workplace with a recent development – the Tower at PNC Plaza. Located in downtown Pittsburgh, the building will be 800,00 sq.ft (74,322 sq.mt) with a construction budget of approximately US $240 million.


The "breathing" design created by architecture firm Gensler moves away from the traditional closed air-conditioned environment and has the lofty aim of becoming the greenest skyscraper in the world.


Employees in the 33 floor glass tower will access daylight and fresh air. The PNC Tower design recognizes that the Pittsburgh climate can provide increased levels of natural light onto the floorspace along with improved regulation of temperatures for much of the year without using traditional, energy-intensive HVAC systems. The Tower hopes to achieve this with a double-skin facade of two panes of glass separated by an enclosed cavity, allowing external air inside. The facade features operable doors and windows that admit fresh air into the building during optimal conditions, while a solar chimney is another passive system- it pulls air in through the open windows, the air then travels across the floors, is heated and exhaled through the roof shaft.


The Tower will consume less than 50 percent of the energy a typical office building uses and will save PNC at least 30 percent on its energy costs...

Tall buildings have been historically less efficient than smaller squarer buildings to operate, but now with new technologies we are seeing rapid improvements in the taller buildings and FINALLY we are seeing things like operable ventilation once again.

Inspiring, Creative & Cool Tiny Work Spaces From Around The World

Inspiring, Creative & Cool Tiny Work Spaces From Around The World | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

As the world and its cities get more densely populated, it is not only homes that are becoming smaller, but offices and work spaces as well. 
Inc.com recently published a photo story about nine of their favorite small-office spaces that are incredibly inspiring and creative, proving that small can indeed be beautiful. 
The list includes futuristic, innovatively designed pods that can be set up in the backyard, the middle of a forest or anywhere else with a tiny piece of spare space, and clever container offices that can be stacked one on top of the other.
