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.

New LEED Platinum (pending) Mixed-Use Project by Pugh + Scarpa opens in LA

Bicoastal, cutting-edge architecture firm Pugh + Scarpa has just completed a new 12 unit Mixed-Use, LEED Platinum(pending) building in Los Angeles. Cherokee Mixed-Use Lofts is an urban infill, mixed-use, market-rate housing project. The building is inspired by the series of paintings by the British artist Patrick Hughes titled, Prospectivity, whose paintings appear to be ever changing(click for video) and physically moving while being viewed. At Cherokee the main architectural feature of this project is the building’s owner-controlled operable double facade system. By allowing the occupant to adjust, at will, the operable screens of the building façade, the facade is virtually redesigned “live” from within the space, reflecting the occupants of the building within, in real time. In effect, it becomes a live canvas to be painted upon daily or more often.

Cherokee is the first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum (pending) Certified building in Hollywood and is the first LEED Platinum Certified mixed-use or market rate multi-family building in Southern California. The building distinguishes itself from most conventionally developed projects in that it incorporates energy efficient measures that exceed standard practice, optimize building performance, and ensure reduced energy use during all phases of construction and occupancy.Cherokee Lofts by Pugh + Scarpa
