The new dwelling is the result of the transformation of an old motorbike repair shop in the Milagrosa district of Pamplona. The intention of the project is to be a kind of prototype for this form of reconversion in the neighborhood, as it has a large number of industrial premises now in disuse and their transformation would greatly help to revitalize the area, a possibility that is however unknown in many cases to the local residents.

December 3, 2021 Paula Pintos 0

Zuiderzicht is one of the eight high-rise volumes positioned at diverse spots within the master plan by Studio Associates Secchi-Viganò for Antwerp Nieuw Zuid. The project’s position is strategic: while close to the river and within green public spaces designed by Bas Smets, you are only 3 minutes away from Antwerp’s center. With its bright colour and open appearance, the Zuiderzicht tower fits with Antwerp’s tradition of white, layered, tectonic high-rises such as the Onze-Lieve-Vrouwe Cathedral, the art deco style KBC-tower and the Police tower, and others.

Through renovation, this urban historical and cultural neighborhood has been activated and renewed. CCD conceived a Heytea store sited in Nantou. Through integrating the site’s millennia-old cultural heritage and the city’s modernization over the past three decades, the CCD team created an example that represents the rebirth of Nantou. Based on modern approaches, CCD introduced classical architectural elements to inject timeless charm into the architecture and interior space. The most beautiful “sphere” strengthens the aesthetics of the space, which breaks conventional store design and creates an “undefined” inspiring space.

MJS is a newly founded private initiative with the aim of creating an exemplary kindergarten and primary school that provides an inspirational and practical education to the young children in its care. It is located near Sentema, a village about 20km west of Kampala.The inspiration for the design was to create a ‘large home’ for the children that functions as a comfortable enabling educational environment. The architectural ambition is not programmatically prescriptive, but rather to inspire teachers and students alike to inhabit spaces in multiple and creative ways, to (literally) think outside the box, and to treat the entire school, not just the classroom, as a greater learning environment.
