Hangzhou Yuhang Opera / Henning Larsen

August 31, 2019 Pilar Caballero 0

Nestled between the bustling city of Hangzhou and the calm shores of East Lake, the Hangzhou Yuhang Opera cuts a distinctive profile in the skyline, its landscaped peaks appearing to dip beneath the water’s glassy surface. The new building forms the heart of a new cultural node in Yuhang, a fast-growing dis- trict in the metropolis of Hangzhou. Completed in May 2019 in collaboration with Hangzhou Architectural & Civil Engineering Design Insti- tute Co., Buro Happold Engineering, and with Bassinet Turquin Paysage and AECOM for landscape, the 70,000m2 performance venue is an unmissable presence on the otherwise uninterrupted waterfront. The new structure houses a broad range of culturally oriented spaces, including a 1400-seat multipur- pose auditorium, a 500-seat black box theatre, an exhibition center, and supporting facilities.

The Renovation of Lianhua Mountain Bus Terminal / MOZHAO ARCHITECTS

August 31, 2019 Collin Chen 0

The Lianhua Mountain Bus Terminal is located in the southwest corner of the Lianhua Mountain in Futian District of Shenzhen, which is the intersection of the Xinzhou Road and Hongli Road. The user is the female model bus fleet of the bus group. Before the renovation, the bus terminal was a three-floor high old building with ceramic tile wall. The first floor was office program and the other two floors were dormitories for employees. Considering that the existing building and facilities are too old to meet the multiple functions of both internal use and external communication and publicity, the Bus Group decided to renovate the building and the surrounding environment as a whole, and transform the 2nd and 3rd floor as the Party-mass center and office program, in order to provide a pleasant and cozy workplace for the fleet, and also improve the terminal environment and bus service experience for the citizens.

CASA KUTZ is a single-family project located within the Yucatán Country Club in Mérida, Yucatán. Designed to function as a holiday home and as a second home for the client and his extended family, the concept was to make a practical space of low maintenance, where private and social spaces could be separated and operated in isolation. In a plot of 1200 m2 of trapezoidal form, with two fronts towards the street, it has 800 m2 of construction. Being located in a city with an extreme climate, all the details regarding the sun were taken care of, always looking to protect from the west and to have openings in the volumetry according to the solar path with the intention of providing all the areas with cross ventilation; through terraces and inner courtyards that help the natural air circulation and refreshing shadows.
