* Residential Architecture: Sun Slice House by Steven Holl Architects

Posted by the editors on Saturday, 24 March 2012

Residential Architecture: Sun Slice House by Steven Holl Architects: “..This weekend house..is organized to frame slices of sunlight. While the owner’s profession revolves around artificial light, slices of natural light and their change in space throughout the day and year is the focus of the house. While most elevations are simple rectangles strategically sliced and cut for the play of light within, the north façade is made of glass with views of Lake Garda..The steel frame and concrete structure is skinned with an alloy of copper, steel, chromium, and nickel, which weathers to a leathery red color. Interiors are white plaster with terrazzo floors on the ground level while bamboo floors cover the second. Natural ventilation and geothermal heating and cooling are part of the energy plan..”  With the weathered look of Corten Steel, extensive glazing, natural light, creative form, sharp interiors..

Architecture: In China: Linked Hybrid by Steven Holl Architects

Posted by the editors on Tuesday, 24 January 2012

Architecture: In China: Linked Hybrid by Steven Holl Architects: “..a twenty-first century porous urban space, inviting and open to the public from every side. A filmic urban experience of space; around, over and through multifaceted spatial layers, as well as the many passages through the project, make the Linked Hybrid an “open city within a city”. The project promotes interactive relations and encourages encounters in the public spaces that vary from commercial, residential, and educational to recreational; a three-dimensional public urban space..”  Mixed-use, green spaces and social design..
