Wilkinson Public Library by U+B Architecture

Wilkinson Public Library by U+B Architecture. The restrained exterior underwent a complex public approval process; a Colorado sandstone base, red brick walls, and stone detailing reflect the site’s warehouse district legacy. The Telluride Room Tower, which houses the town’s historic archives and periodical room, is reminiscent of an iconic railroad water tower that was located near the site before being demolished over 20 years ago.

Maya Ubud Hotel and Spa, Luxury Hotel and Spa in Bali, Indonesia

September 12, 2009 By: Category: Architecture

Maya Ubud Hotel and Spa, is Luxury Hotel and Spa in Bali, Indonesia. Designed by Denton Corker Marshall. Located high between two river valleys, Maya Ubud sits on a long peninsula of land, which slopes gradually before dropping off dramatically at the southern tip where the Maya Spa sits near a small waterfall on the banks of the river Petanu. Maya Ubud juggles with new and traditional concepts in its design: there are no intricate Balinese paintings, masks nor statues; instead, a deeper, Ancient Balinese concept is celebrated through its landscape and architecture.

Its siting is inspired by the prehistoric Balinese tradition of orientating the villages along the Kaja-Kelod sacred axis, linking the mountains in the centre of the island – the realm of Gods (Kaja) – to the surrounding seas where the demons are (Kelod). A ceremonial central spine follows the main ridge connecting the major public spaces such as the porte-cochere, lobby and spa. The ‘houses’ are then positioned on both sides of the village axis following the contour of the land. At Maya four parallel lines in the form of massive stone walls emphasise the main ceremonial spine. Modern functional spaces are free to slip in and out of these walls; some go further, hanging over the cliff in the case of the swimming pool and restaurant. Culture and heritage are celebrated wherever you look. The subtlety of this celebration is that it is not immediately recognisable to the observer. [ Denton Corker Marshall ]

Apollo Office Building Design by SOM Architects in Amsterdam

September 12, 2009 By: Category: Architecture

Apollo Office Building, is Amsterdam Building was designed by SOM Architects, located in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Amsterdam’s Nieuw Zuid District is characterized by an attention to design detail, context, contrast, and scale—trademarks of Hendrik Petrus Berlage, the early 20th century Dutch architectural master who inspired the Amsterdam School and whose Master Plan for Nieuw Zuid is considered one of the great exemplars of its kind. SOM’s thoughtful design for the last developable site in the district could thus be no less than, as its designer suggested, “an essay in the responsibility of architecture in which the individual achievement must be in harmony with the collective sense of design.” [ SOM Architects ]
