Akasya Acıbadem. Tarihi dokusunun yanında İstanbul'un en eski yerleşim bölgelerinden Üsküdar ile son yıllarda konut ve ticaret programlarının yüksek binalarda projelendirildiği, yoğun yapılaşmayla hızlı bir şekilde gelişen Ataşehir'in çeperlerinde Acıbadem'de yer alıyor.

Akasya Acıbadem

İki bölgenin de değerlerini koruyan ve aynı zamanda ihtiyaçları yeniden tariflenen kentsel hayatın gereklerini gözeten bir mimari anlayışla tasarlanmış. Proje geliştirme sürecinde genel geçer konut üretim yaklaşımının tersine, kente artı bir değer kazandırmak amacıyla, nitelikli doğal bir çevre yaratılarak, bir arada yaşamayı güncel eylem ve fonksiyon biçimleriyle donatan sosyal alanlar üretilerek, alt ve üst yapılarda modern teknolojiyi kullanılarak kentleşmenin ve kentli olmanın ihtiyaçlarına yanıt aranmış. Projenin Göl etabı parselin bulunduğu arazinin merkezinde mevcut akarsu yatağının tekrar canlandırılarak eski flora ve fauna dokusunun yeşertildiği peyzajla bütünleşerek elde edilmiş suyun etrafında şekillenmiş.

The proposal by NL Architects and WHAT Architecture for the Columnar Towers: Colville Estate competition attempts to mitigate the effects of a large massing of residences by breaking each tower into a ‘bundle’ of seven smaller towers, or ‘columns’.

Columnar Towers: Colville Estate Competition Entry / NL Architects + WHAT Architecture

Each mini-tower is formed by simple ‘stacks’ of single apartments. This residential development of 199 apartments in Hackney, London is part of a masterplan by Karakusevic Carson Architects for the regeneration of the Colville Estate. More images and architects’ description after the break. Two towers were required with a different footprint and of different heights; one with six and the other with 5 apartments per floor. This precondition however forces the entire complex to be relatively tall.

A ‘vertical dialogue’ is established between the columns: one grows, one shrinks. Each individual mini-tower is further defined through fenestration changes, creating a constantly changing formal rhythm to the two towers. Tour & Taxis. Showing image 6 of 33 The new Tour & Taxis masterplan aims to create a modern, vibrant quarter on the outskirts of Brussels Centre.

The project site contains a number of aspects and views that correspond with the surrounding context and begin to suggest a gateway project for the proposed park. A project that gives prominence to the new intervention while protects the park from the nearby busy road.


Mixed-use schemes, Goettsch Partners. Architecture firm Goettsch Partners (GP) has won two recent design competitions in China for the Greenland Group, one of the country’s largest real estate developers.

Mixed-use schemes, Goettsch Partners

Located in the cities of Foshan and Suzhou, the projects are both mixed-use, multi-building developments, together encompassing more than 650,000 sq m. In Foshan, the Chancheng Greenland Center involves a two-phased, 430,000 sq m development located east of the Old City District on a major arterial roadway linking Foshan with Guangzhou. The first-phase planning consists of a six-tower residential complex totaling 86,660 sq m; a 34,500 sq m street retail environment composed of two- and three-storey shops; and a 100m-tall commercial office tower. Green 360 Lofts by the Golf Course - BH Architects on Architizer. Parkhill Competition Winning Proposal / Nice Architects. Located on the former site on an old outdoor amphitheatre in Bratislava, Slovakia, the proposal for the housing and mixed use development, which won the first prize in the Parkhill competition, offers spectacular views and close proximity to one of the city’s oldest parks.

Parkhill Competition Winning Proposal / Nice Architects

Designed by Nice Architects, their challenge on the 52,000 m2 site was to create intensive residential development with public services located in the lower part of the site. The final composition of the buildings becomes a small reminiscence of the former amphitheatre. More images and architects’ description after the break. Imagine former site of old outdoor amphitheatre virtually unsuitable for residential development. Terrain too steep for comfortable traffic, sloping northward preventing proper insulation. Tulou Housing Guangzhou / URBANUS Architects by Iwan Baan. Architecture photographer Iwan Baan once again shared with us an impressive photo set on a social housing project by Chinese architects Urbanus.

Tulou Housing Guangzhou / URBANUS Architects by Iwan Baan

The commission was to design a 220 apartment housing complex for people for low income families in Guangzhou. Urbanus decided to give the complex a nice and intimate atmosphere, by reinterpreting the traditional Hakka Houses. This housing typology correspond to 300 year old houses in the south of China, and as you can see on some pictures after the jump, they are basically a large housing project where complete families live as a community (aunts, nieces, nephews, etc.) You can take a look at the Urbanus’ complete photo set over here, and the Hakka Houses photos over here.
