Townhouse Design by David Chipperfield Architects, in Berlin, Germany 1

This Townhouse is designed by David Chipperfield Architects, located in Berlin, Germany.
Within the tight restrictions of a deep and narrow lot, the house achieves generosity through room height. The qualities of natural light and space are more important than the optimisation of surface area and flexibility. The location of the staircase on the facade, unusual for a townhouse, highlights the significance of the vertical aspect of the project. While from a material point of view, the facade is almost passive, the composition of vertical cuboids with glazed fronts creates depth and a sculptural quality.

David Chipperfield Architects has completed the Townhouse O-10 in Berlin. The building is in the new district of ‘Friedrichswerder’ which is emerging between Werderstraße and Leipziger Straße, Oberwall-, Niederwallstraße and Kurstraße. Historic areas of urban development such as England’s noted townhouse settlements of the last two centuries have served as inspiration for the new district.

Guangzhou Baiyun International Convention Center Design by BURO II, in Guangzhou, China

June 15, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Architecture

Designed by BURO II, located in Guangzhou, China.
The administration of the booming city of Guangzhou decided to develop a new administrative centre to the north of the downtown area, on the site of the old airport, at the edge of the historical landscape of the Baiyun Mountains. The new congress centre must function as the motor of this new urban process.

The Baiyun highway cuts the mountain park off from the new urban development. The old villages and the new buildings coexist in a chaotic urban conglomerate. Despite the current fragmentation of the site, it does have enormous qualities and potentials. The plot is located there where the historical dialog between the mountain and the city can be renewed within a contemporary society.
