The PuXuan Hotel and Spa
The most ambitious of the Urban Resort Concept Group to date, the PuXuan hotel is representative of the emphasis on ‘Hostmanship’ with a well thought out attention to detail for guests at every level, from the exemplary service at the two flagship restaurant’s to the carefully placed coin bags, cable tidies and screen wipes in the room there to organize you during the evening turn down service. The hotel design is beautiful – friendly and warm with a distinct nod to the cultural heritage of Beijing that weaves trough the interiors. PuXuan is careful balance of the modern and traditional with an overall contemporary feel. The rooms are very comfortable, spacious and are open in layout but can be compartmentalized for privacy. A very slick, helpful and friendly team, especially as the hotel has just opened. The gym facilities also deliver. Look forward to the Spa opening in the spring! Highly recommended.

Located in Freiburg, this stunning concrete villa was designed as a part time residence for an Iranian family who spends half the year in Germany. To this end, Iranian architectural patterns were used as a guiding principle in the design, tempered by important local construction considerations such as sloping roofs to accommodate heavy rainfall. The number 4 is important Iranian architecture so the home was envisioned as 4 sectioned spaces that are interconnected by an intermediary corridor. In the western section, Fakhrmddin brick filters light into the interior space; from the gardens on the exterior, the material nods to Iranian architectural landscapes during the Safavid period. The prominent use of arches was carried into the interior design elements, including memorable kitchen chairs.

Vienna is a city that has long been associated with excellence in modern, multiunit housing and BURO KLK's Gudrunstraße lends further credence to this perception. Erected in an empty lot, the building's façade is comprised of stacked Viennese Schrebergardens (traditional, small and intmate garden communities), creating a unique identity for each home while simultaneously reinforcing a strong and singular character for the building as a whole. The peaked gable-like protrutions act like symbols of home and dwelling — an especially welcome image in a predominantly commercial neighborhood. In this sense, the apartment building positively contributes to the area's urban development. The complex contains a total of fifty apartments and six offices, all oriented to the South-East towards a more quiet street. This optimizes light conditions while reducing noise pollution.

While most museums prioritize the display of objects, the Elephant Museum also aims to convey the voice of the Kui and their elephants; to communicate the unique familial bonds between them and to transmit the devastating impacts of habitat destruction.
The building’s distinct footprint and profile stand out on the barren site. Sloping and interlocking in an almost labyrinthine layout, the museum’s curved walls vary in height, their spacing seems to be scaled to the size of a Thai elephant. The museum architecturally translates the spatial rhythms of the elephants lives, as they go from the shelter of their homes to the forested pathways that lead to bathing rivers, and then to muddy dirt playgrounds. Unique courtyard spaces open off of the four exhibition galleries, each distinct in shape and size. Some contain little ponds while others are enlivened by reddish earth.
A material perspective is not inconsequential. The museum is built from over 480,0000 handmade clay bricks, fired locally using a longstanding technique. The construction process bolstered the local economy, providing income and jobs, also valorizing the material. In this sense, the material decision reinforce the raison d’etre of the Elephant Museum: it is meant to “empower the Kui, the elephants, and the people of Surin..[e]ncouraging them to take pride in their heritage, and restoring the dignity of their beloved elephants once again.
Galleria, South Korea
Taking on a geological appearance, the Galleria was designed with a textured mosaic stone facade to evoke natural themes — the idea was inspired by the nearby park and its features. Like a “sculpted stone emerging from the ground,” the building is a visual landmark and focal point for the surrounding area. The mosaic stone was created using pixelated triangles to give the cube form of the building a textured pattern. The exterior stone panels were coordinated with DAEHYE Interior Design & Architecture. OMA also worked with 3DPRIYOL, façade consultant VS-A, and smart node curtain wall consultant Withworks to bring the ambitious façade of the Galleria to life.
With the aim of introducing a new element to the department store typology, the team created an “excavated public route” that emerges from the stone volume. This clear addition was made to connect retail and cultural activities, in addition to linking the roof garden with the public sidewalk. The design team noted that the public route uses multifaceted glass to contrast with the opacity of the stone. Through this glass, retail and cultural activities inside are revealed to the city’s passers-by, while visitors in the interior acquire new vantage points and views to experience Gwanggyo.

This “building within a building” integrates the stone ruins of a former parchment factory with a Grade 2 listed double fronted Victorian house and its accompanying cattle shed. By delicately inserting two lightweight volumes within the crumbling masonry walls, the intervention preserves and celebrates a heritage structure that was very nearly demolished. The extension was built out of up-cycled materials predominantly found on site which was both cost effective and sustainable, allowing the building to sensitively blend into its surroundings. Far from being a constraint, the architect's viewed the ruin as a positive asset that could in fact be celebrated through a sensitive but well conceived intervention.

Transforming an urban wasteland
Transforming an urban wasteland, HEITO 1909 is an exciting new park that draws on the haunting aesthetic of historical industrial decay. The first and only of its kind in Taiwan, this unique preservation and adaptive reuse project endeavored to identify and recover the remaining structures of a turn-of-the-century factory. Two underground industrial spaces and five wastewater basins were in ruin; they now act like microscopes of the city’s history, revealing the sugar industry's role in urban life, from the colonial era through World War II to the present day.

Since 1883, Hendrik Conscience Square is named after the 19th-century Flemish writer Hendrik Conscience whose statue has been placed on the square. Before that it was called Jesuit Square because the Jesuits built the square in its current form.
The partly 17th-century buildings around the square are characterized by a Baroque style. This is especially true for the imposing St. Carolus Borromeo Church, a former Jesuit church. The baroque style of the buildings around the square, with great pomp and splendor, was consciously stimulated by the Jesuits. As part of the Counter Reformation, the order wanted to encourage the population to come to their churches in all kinds of ways. Hence the difference in height of 8 meters between the front of the Sint Carolus Borromeus church and the rear with nothing behind just to make it look more imposant.
A 17th century publicity stunt to attract more people.
The entire square has been tiled with cobble stones. If you look closely you can see the 4 symbols of the card game (heart, club, diamond, spade).
The photo is taken under the Sodality (oldest part of Hendrik Conscience heritage library), a wide passage that connects Conscienceplein with the Jesuitsrui, popularly called the “Jesuitengat".
In 1927 a bronze memorial plaque in honor of August Snieders, a writer, was placed.
In 1975 this square became the first auto-free square in the city, created through the efforts of local residents and some well-known artists such as Hugo Heyrman and Panamarenko.

Large amusement park outside Nagoya
Nagashima Resort is a major vacation destination just outside Nagoya. It is comprised of five main leisure facilities: the Nagashima Spaland amusement park, a water park, a hot spring complex, an outlet shopping mall and a flower park named Nabana no Sato. The resort is located on a long piece of land that is surrounded by rivers and the sea; fittingly, it is called Nagashima or "long island".
Nagashima Spaland, reputed to be the best amusement park for roller coasters in western Japan, is the main attraction of the resort. The park is filled with over forty rides, ranging from gentle ones suitable for children to outrageous ones for those looking to spend some exhilarating moments. Immediately noticeable even before entering the main gate is the Steel Dragon 2000, a gigantic roller coaster ride which spans the entire length of the park.
This townhouse project explores the possibilities of building densely and sustainably. The brief sought to transform one suburban block into three homes that maximize economical ESD, showcasing environmentally-friendly design that promotes liveability and affordability in an urban centre.
In response, the architects transformed the block into three fossil-fuel free homes, which rely on a mixture of solar panels, battery technology and electric and hedonic heading, to achieve 8+ out of 10-star energy rating. Energy efficiency is partially attributable to the the Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) construction system, which creates a tight building envelop that better insulates and reduces heat loss. Meanwhile the sawtooth profile nods to the post-war warehouse history of the site.
The design's success was achieved through a Collaborative Development model by HIP V. HYPE, which “allows for collaborators to come together to create better quality, more sustainable and financially accessible homes in inner urban locations where property prices are increasingly forcing people out of the market.”
