Architect Gilles Bouchez has devised an ingenious and eye-catching solution to the problem of solar gain on the south facing side of his design for the new municipal office building in Lacq, France. Working closely with expert fabricators for DuPont™ Corian®, Crea Diffusion of Metz in France, he has exploited the multiple benefits and high-performance properties of the material to create a finely patterned and ‘invisibly’ fixed parasol which prevents excessive thermal gains while also allowing for a beautiful interplay of shadow and sunlight.

Casa Rex Pacaembu – 29 Jul 2013
A project made for the design office Casa Rex, in the neighborhood Pacaembu, in São Paulo, Brazil. Plural, contemporary and investigative projects, concerning mainly the use of materials and the urban interaction, are fundamental characteristics of the works by Brazilian architecture office FGMF Arquitetos. A real example of this DNA is the project made for the design office Casa Rex, at Pacaembu, São Paulo, Brazil. Typical elements from infrastructure works were applied within this building, giving a different aesthetic effect to the project.

After a successful design competition, Faulknerbrowns were asked by Rochdale Borough Council to design a new civic office to achieve three strategic objectives:
• rationalization of their estate from thirty-three buildings into one;
• provision of an environment which delivers ‘new ways of working’;
• creation of a sense of community engagement and social transparency.
All of these objectives on their own stimulated and excited the design team; combined, they provided a unique opportunity to develop a special building within the challenging context of an economic downturn.

The new “Lalux” building has 2,500 aluminium louvres installed at varying intervals in alternating shades of gold, brown and bronze lend the building envelope a memorable rhythm. It is this façade of lustrous, vertical elements, whose sinewy elegance evokes the image of ripening corn in a neighbouring field that lends the building its iconic look.

Avery Associates Architects have received planning permission for a 10,800 sqm office building and 246 room hotel at the junction of Holborn Viaduct and Snow Hill in the City of London. The construction phase has now been given the go ahead. The site presented some unusually challenging constraints. It is not only restricted below by a Thameslink railway tunnel and above by five of the six protected views to St. Paul’s Cathedral, but sits opposite and in close proximity to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre without Newgate.

UN City – 3 Jul 2013
The new regional head office of the United Nations is designed with clear references to the UN’s identity and values: It is a building that physically reaches out to all parts the world, while the sculptural staircase in its core reflects the UN’s work to create global dialogue.
NS Stations Headquarters – Interior Refurbishment, The Netherlands, Utrecht,
Design: NL Architects

NS Stations Headquarters – 2 Jul 2013
The current floor plan consists of typical cellular offices along the facade and an oversized hallway in the center. The basic idea is to introduce a series of perpendicular walls that will organize the space. By ‘inflating’ these partitioning walls they can become storage spaces. The shelves can absorb most of the clutter that normally spreads trough the office, such as wardrobes, bookshelves, flip boards, archive, bulletin boards. And sometimes even the stairs. The Thick Walls™ will clean up the space.

Premier Campus Offices Istanbul – 20 May 2013
The volume of the block is literally carved out to invite the surroundings in. The local hilly landscape, characteristic to Istanbul, is continued in the meandering of the volume both in plan, adapting to the site’s edges, and in section, weaving into itself in a series of gentle curving slopes, echoing the nearby Bosphorus waves.

Office Building Concept – 11 Apr 2013
Jean Nouvel’s response to Cosmit’s commission for a huge project, tailored specifically to the Saloni and documenting the tremendous changes that have changed the face of living and work spaces alike over the past few years is “a project that frees up the office space, a counter to urban segregation and the zoning of other specially dedicated workplaces.”

Office Building in Milan – 7 Jan 2013
When this building was built, it was considered to be modern and technologically advanced, even experimental.
