The project is located in Hengqin CBD Island and classified as mix-used land, including office, conference, exhibition, apartment and retail. All functions are planned as a whole to forge it into a landmark. Inspired by "Kowloon map", the project has a unique and spiral shape rising from the ground to the sky to express speed, power, and vitality. In order to achieve such elegant form, state-of-the-art digital techniques are used to rationalize the complex shape and achieve cost control. The project is the combination of traditional Chinese totem and contemporary architecture development.
To establish an intersection between Ormankoy Community Centre and the surrounded natural park which is approx. 60.000 sqm, 2 biological ponds in size of total 4000 sqm had been incorporated to project area. Along the design process, it's aimed to form a clean and sleek geometry; a unique – iconic – lasting impact. Surrounded by the natural park, functional gains had met with the requirements by the advantage of having large foot area under the 2 gable roofs lowering to ground level.
The project is based on 3 main axes; Wellness Living, Sustainability and Flexible Living. It aims to propose a new housing concept for the real estate market. A housing concept that offers wellness and sustainable features that benefit health and the environment, with a low density and low land occupancy percentage while maintaining a competitive and affordable price. It also offers Flexible Living because it is designed as an open-plan building that can be configured in multiple options and satisfy different needs.
Located in Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay, the Bayfront Pavilion follows the tradition of architectural structures that evoke a dialogue with nature by blending a complex computationally generated and optimised form with a perforated skin fluidly with the adjacent environments. For visitors, it offers a climatically comfortable outdoor environment and a visual experience akin to walking under the foliage of lush tropical trees. Since its completion, the project has become a popular building and new entrance to the Gardens that serves as a venue for important community and cultural events.
In Villa 22, water serves as the connecting element. Not only did water play a unifying role in the construction process when pouring concrete, it also has a defining function in which the villa is experienced and perceived. This is a villa in which a sleek geometric interplay of lines (with a leading role for concrete, glass, and wood) forms a symbiosis with the rippling water in the swimming pool. This alliance between the hard, unyielding nature of the concrete, the warm appearance of the applied elm wood, and the rippling water gives Villa 22 a welcoming and homely feel.
The heart of the Music School in Warsaw is a round-plan concert hall. The area divided in half between the audience and the stage allows to create a comfortable place for musicians and music lovers. The amphitheater arch surrounding young artists gives them an intimate workspace and sense of community with the audience. Wooden sail-shaped reflectors and a ceiling hanging in the hall give it a characteristic architectural expression. All of the acoustic aspects of the Konior Studio project were consulted with Nagata Acoustics.
