360° Building Design by Isay Weinfeild Architects, in São Paulo, Brazil

December 01, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Architecture

This 360° Building is design by Isay Weinfeild Architects, located in São Paulo, Brazil.
Mindful of the urban reality in São Paulo, of the market and of the client brief, Isay Weinfeld with Domingos Pascali as associate architect have strived to introduce 360º Building as an alternative to the vertical multi-family housing “model”, which, in its commonest form, merely stacks up apartment units – ordinary, compact and closed onto themselves.

360º Building, rising on top of the ridge separating the districts of Alto de Pinheiros and Alto da Lapa – a geographic location that will offer privileged sights of the surrounding area and the city, will feature 62 elevated homes with yards: real yards, not balconies, designed as genuine living spaces, wide, airy and bright. It will present 7 types of apartments – either 130, 170 or 250 sq m – combined in sets of 2, 3 or 4 units per floor, in 6 different arrangements.

Leaving the street and past the reception, a suspended walkway will lead to the building’s lobby, surrounded on all sides by a reflective pool. Down one floor, on the ground level, entertaining areas and other facilities – gym, lounge, party room and laundry – will be located, as also the janitor’s living quarters. Further down, there will be 3 parking levels, and, on the lowermost level, employees quarters, storage and engine rooms, in addition to a sauna and an outdoor swimming pool. The land, a steep downwards slope, allowed the lower levels to be semi-subterranean, always keeping 2 sides open to the light and to ventilation. The building projects to all sides showing no distinction between main and secondary façades.

Fulbright Building by Marlon Blackweel Architect in Fayetteville, Arkansas

October 07, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Architecture

Designed by Marlon Blackwell Architect, Fulbright Building located in Fayetteville, Arkansas. From Architect : ” A renovation project intended to revitalize the civic quality of a historically and architecturally significant library building, while inserting a new program of professional offices. The Fulbright Building was built in 1962 to house the Fayetteville Public Library and remained the Library’s home until the Library moved to a new facility in 2004. Respecting the original design of the building the steel frame structure has remained relatively untouched. The upper floor of the building is lit from exterior glass windows and skylights cut into the existing roof. To make the lower floor more marketable, holes were cut in the upper floor slab below each of the skylights and staircases dropped into them. The 1990s addition, a double height space with a stair and handicap ramp, was converted into a large conference lounge area with an acoustical ‘shroud,’ clad in black zinc, suspended above. The sculptural figure of the ‘shroud’ acts as an art piece seen through the glass from the street. ”
