Gazoline Petrol Station


Damilano Studio Architects have recently completed the Gazoline Petrol Station in Cuneo, Piemonte, Italy. Seen as a strong reference to the idea of travel, the design of the service station represents how these short or long distance routes are interrupted only by a few stops and then back on the road. This station is seen as a place to take a break for refueling or just to stretch for a while before heading back on one's journey.

House on the Flight of Birds


Located on the north side of S. Michael Island in Azores, Portugal, this residence, designed by Bernardo Rodrigues, offers diverse patios and covered courtyards on the ground floor offering protection from rain and opens all living spaces to the natural surrounding landscape by glass walls receded from the exterior. In addition, more enlosed and protected private rooms are found on the upper floor. This strategy effectively responds to the frequent strong winds and showers that are present in this microclimate farmland.

The typology follows an almost classical Palladian and Scamozzi central plan design with a double height living room and then two lateral wings enclosing the kitchen on one and the circulations for the first floor and roof terrace on the other.

The Great Wall

Seoul based firm, Yamasaki Ku Hong Associates Design Lab, designed 'The Great Wall,' a mixed used housing complex that is currently in progress in Suizhong, China. The complex also includes office, retail and differentiated public outdoor courtyards which are sandwiched in between two different types of retail, which allows for a concentrated and continuous shopping experience.

The idea of stacking small-size factories in an apartment format is received well, but there have been some problems associated with access to day-lighting and poor working conditions. As a response, they tried to develop next generation ‘apt-factories’ with improved ecological, economical, flexible and social bases in mind.

Water Box 

Image: Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe and AssociatesSouth Florida based firm, Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe and Associates recently won third place in the Miami Water Box competition. Their main concept aims to build on the idea that a successful theatre is associated with the strength and quality of the relationship between the audience and the performer.

Cantilevering way overhead, the candela structure, while monumental and fully expressed, falls behind the viewer once they are directing their attention to the stage. The floating stage attempts to add a layer of this water vocabulary by resembling a cube of water. The intention of the cube is to evoke thoughts of the long standing tradition of man-made islands and waterways throughout the bay.
