The History of a Pavilion
For 7 years, once a year, the construction of an unprecedented place has been celebrated in Santiago de Chile. These places come and they go. Truckloads of dirt, bundles of wicker, live corn plants enter and leave the park Parque Araucano… Nobody knows exactly what is hatching but it is certain that once again the park will surprise the visitors with something new.
The History of a Pavilion
The Silo is part of the transformation of Copenhagen’s Nordhavn (North Harbour) – a vast post-industrial development, currently being transformed into a new city district. Designed by Danish architects COBE with clients Klaus Kastbjerg and NRE Denmark, a 17-storey former grain silo and the largest industrial building in the area has been transformed into “The Silo”, housing residential apartments and public functions.
Between the slopes of the San Cristóbal hill and the Mapocho river lays the emblematic Bellavista neighbourhood. Between heritage houses and cites and continuous facades, there is a void within the block on the street Mallincrodt. This is a result of a fire that made the old San Ginés theatre of the Sáenz family disappear. As a cause of the event, the owners find it necessary to re-build the theatre with more force and with an integral vision, relating it directly to the neighbourhood and its people.
A showcase of promotion and innovation showing multiple possibilities of design.
A space in which brands and products from all over the world.
A space that promotes creativity through its use of spacious and flexible rooms that gives the user the opportunity to interact with such brands and products associated with high-quality architectural specification.
In the middle of the boom of houses adapted for the use of retirement homes, is designed HG, a building designed exclusively for the comfort and safety of the elderly.
The weather is strong, it dominates jeju life, it is very windy quite often, and weather changes instantaneously. The basalt rocks are everywhere, demarcating fields, and individual houses. The orum, which is like a little hill, is everywhere, more than 350 of them in jeju island. It creates a scene. The island is sort of an exotica among Koreans, weather and vegetation reminds them of tropics. In the past, it was home for many exiles from the mainland. Time flows rather differently here. Weather is the ruler.
A family weekend house, which will eventually become a place of retreat, located inside a garden of walnuts and coffee plantations where more than being able to look at the landscape, is immersed in it.
These tiny buildings are created specifically for the environment that they are in. Every design decision has been made to either enhance the experience of the surroundings or shield from it. The purpose of the cabins is to let the people staying in them come close to nature but in a comfortable way.
House H, located in Oberbozen, is an intimate refuge, a place to live surrounded by landscape. Placed close to the angle of the existing holzner park hotel building, it represents the final point of the compound. The concept is that of introducing connection elements to allow the dialogue between existing and new. Starting from a linear volume, working by subtracting: by alternating intimate balconies with dug loggias, the attention moves away from the historic Renon train tracks.
Tucked away in Thonglor’s prime residential neighbourhood, the newly constructed building serves as a shop/showroom for Patom body care products, a small 25-seat café and a place for raising ecological awareness and sustainable living through a series of workshops and farmers market held in the garden, selling fresh produce from the local network of organic farmers.
