Nørre Vosborg / Arkitema Architects

After restoration, conversion and extension by Arkitema, beautiful Nørre Vosborg manor is now an up-to-date hotel, cultural venue and conference centre, with a newly-built hotel wing and new design solutions for all of the manor's many different buildings. The architectural practice of Erik Einar Holm was responsible for the restoration and conversion of the manor house.   The new hotel wing, designed by Arkitema, matches the largest of the complex's buildings in terms of volume. 

Bocconi Urban Campus / OMA

Looking to redefine the relationship between students, buildings and the city of Milan, Bocconi University challenged architects world-wide to design a “campus for the third millennium”. Although first prize was awarded to SANAA’s courtyard-centric complex formed by a series of undulating figures, OMA’s proposal provides an interesting twist to intercity university campuses. 

Formulating a composition of objects that “represents a three-dimensional re-learning of humanistic values”, OMA’s Bocconi Urban Campus proposal sets the stage for Homo Economicus. Two clusters of independent buildings - an “extroverted” new school of management and the “introverted” a-frame student housing tower - are centered around a public amphitheater topped by a canopy of “architectural” umbrellas. While the thirteen story tower shelters the more intimate campus programs and acts as a backdrop to the boisterous new school, all spaces remain permeable to the activities of the surrounding city and establish the most appropriate and stimulating connection.

Multi-Functional Headquarters of Edel AG Competition Entry / Barcode Architects & Habiter Autrement

Designed by Barcode Architects & Habiter Autrement, their proposal for the multi-functional headquarters of Edel AG in Berlin contains a strong mix of program with public functions as an art gallery, café, bookshop and auditorium, versus private functions as the 3000m2 offices for Edel AG and the exclusive penthouses. The 7-storey building is located on the Spandaur Schiffahrts Kanal and will be in the future together with the opposite museum of modern art “Hamburger Bahnhof” and the “Flick Art collection” an important link in the development of the Berlin KunstCampus.

Beauséjour ZAC: Tropical Town Urban Development Proposal / Tekhnê Architects

Recently honored in the first edition of the ‘OFF du dévelopment durable’ as ‘sustainable and desirable area’ and awarded in the recent ‘Barème carbone’ Prize, Tekhnê Architects‘ proposal for the Urban Development project of Beausejour ZAC in La Réunion aims to meet a tremendous challenge. It consists in taking an outstanding 80 ha site of sugar cane fields and then conceiving and creating a town that will be loved by its population and will go through time without hindrance, by integrating it into the environmental setting of the 21st century.

Video: Reading Station Redevelopment Update / Grimshaw Architects

Grimshaw Architects shared with us their construction update video on the Reading Station redevelopment, which consists of the  existing station facilities being enhanced with two new entrances and by the addition of a new transfer bridge over the tracks, designed to accommodate a 100% uplift in passenger growth.  One of the major interchanges of the south east, and one of the busiest stations outside London, it is also the Great Western Main Line’s biggest constraint in terms of performance and capacity in its current form.
